Best veal I have ever had. Great service and a beautiful setting. I would advise my friend that it is pricey, but worth it for a unique and delicious experience.

The meal was good and the server was good. However, the hostesses were terrible. I made a reservation for friends' anniversary 3 weeks in advance. I put in a note about wanting a nice table in a quiet area given one of the people is sensitive to noise. Instead, we were seated in the bar area and told there was no other options. They did have the note about the anniversary but not about the table. But even without them having the note, seating us in the bar area for an anniversary dinner that was reserved almost a month in advance is It is a waterfront restaurant and my guests had no idea as we weren't even in the dining room, never mind having a table along the window. I complained as we were being seated and asked for another table and was told sorry nothing they could do. You would have thought they would have felt badly and at least sent over a piece of anniversary cake for the inconvenience, but absolutely nothing. They should have found us a better table given the reservation was made so far in advance, but at a minimum should have apologized and sent over a glass or wine or piece of cake for their poor planning. Instead they did nothing. This was any easy one to fix and they didn't care to do so.

I made a reservation for 8 people 5 days in advance using Open Table. The restaurant called me twice to confirm the reservation. Upon arrival, The hostess tried seating us in the hallway of the Renaissance center NOT IN THE RESTAURANT. I explained that this was not acceptable. The hostess told me that because I made the reservation on Open Table “that’s what it means. Whatever open table there is”. We had a few words and after speaking with a manager, we were seated 45 mins after our reservation (and 1 hour after arriving) at a table for 6. We had 8 in our party - after requesting an additional table, we finally were seated. The service was fine and the food was good. However, the evening was tainted by the hostess for basically telling me that we were lesser guests because we made a reservation using open table. YOU MUST CALL AND REQUEST A TABLE IN THE ACTUAL RESTAURANT WHEN MAKING A RESERVATION USING OPEN TABLE SO YOU SHOULD JUST CALL THE RESTAURANT DIRECTLY IF YOU DO MOT WANT TO BE TREATED AS A LESSER GUEST. you certainly do not get a discount for sitting in the hallway outside of the restaurant (imagine a food court at the mall). Good luck.

Highly recommended, only thing that kept it from five stars is that we were seated in a back dining room near the kitchen which added to the noise and traffic

Overall a very enjoyable experience.
The meal was very good.
The pasta side however was just ok.
I'd skip it next time.
Service was very very good overall, our server was friendly, helpful, and accommodating.
Only slight negative; our main entree was brought a little too early; we needed a bit more time with the salad and to sit calmly a bit longer.
Great view. Comfortable and elegant.
Hope to visit again.

Outstanding service from Alex our waitress and Jordan the buser. Alex knows her stuff wine and food recommendations were spot on. The Operating Manager was outstanding as well checking on us and making sure everything was perfect. Great food great wine list we will be back! What you'd expect from a first class organization.

I invited a client to dine there and couple of big issues. Steaks on 2 salads were cold, and 2 steak dinners were prepared incorrectly (well done instead of medium) and therefore they had to wait another 30 minutes for a new steak.

Clients were not happy which was sort of embarrassing to me. I take multiple clients to dinner every month and I would not recommend Andiamos

I made a reservation for 7 PM on Saturday and yes it was quite crowded but I did make a reservation. It was for OpenTable and we were seated at the bar and that is not the ambience that I expected from this restaurant. I guess because I did not check and give a specific table I wanted to sit at in the restaurant to be able to see across the water I had to sit at the bar with my date. He was from another state and we wanted a better ambience but the food was wonderful I’m just not happy with where I was seated.

I was celebrating my wedding anniversary and put in 4 days earlier for a window seat for two. I arrived on time with another couple sitting along side of us in the middle of the restaurant. When asked to move the lady sitting people said no, we have reservations arriving soon. After talking to the manager he sat us by the window. Candle light was a battery lit candle that was dead. Had decore falling off walls in the men’s bathroom. Not a good romantic place at all.

The food was excellent; the service was slightly above average. The ambiance, however, was incredibly poor, as they chose to jam two round 4-person tables up against the windows facing the river *right next to the server station* to cram in more patrons on a busy Friday night. Servers were coming and going and rattling silverware during our ENTIRE meal. When one pays $150 for 3 people for a special birthday dinner, one doesn't expect to be a part of the employee experience. Then, at the end of our meal, we had to wait 15 minutes to pay our check; eventually I had to walk up to the hostess station and ask them to cash out our bill. We *might* go back to Andiamo's in the future, but we'll be certain to be a bit more selective regarding our seating.

What a class act! We were a group of four ladies in Detroit for the Buble concert. Andiamo was close to the venue and offered a shuttle to the concert. We thought that was great! We were pleasantly surprised that we were not rushed through dinner and were very well attended. The food was fantastic and we had a beautiful view of the river... no place better in Detroit!

We went for restaurant week and the food was really good, the service could have been better for as slow as it was, our sever kept disappearing into the back and it was so annoying, she only came around to deliver the next serving of food. The bartender should choice a new profession (she was terrible) the worst drinks ever! Sent them back and then eventually just didn’t drink the last one and for the price they charge it should be a decent drink. I had kettle one on the rocks and it was $12.50 (it’s kettle one) nowhere should cheap kettle one vodka be $12.50 and the other drinks where worse.
