This was probably the worst experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant. The waiter got everybody’s order wrong we were there for about 3 hours it took the longest time to get our food. The restaurant wasn’t crowded at all. We had a lot of people and the waiter paid somebody else’s bill with someone else’s card which was very annoying after she came back. Even after that she still got everything wrong. The food was disgusting super bland and it was my birthday. I was so embarrassed nobody liked their food. I’m thinking because it was an upscale restaurant everything would be on point but I was wrong. Everything was wrong even the food. 0/10 would recommend this restaurant to anybody.

If your going to Andiamo go at least 40 minutes before your reservation time because you have to get temperature scanned before you can enter the establishment and that process is very slow

The food was good - the service however was just plain awful. It took 10 minutes for a drink refill. I was done with my filet and the server still didn’t bring the salt I had requested. It took 30 min from the time of ordering a dessert to being informed they didn’t have it and another 30 to get the check. The server only had 3 tables so it was not a busy situation at all. Super disappointed in the service - to the point that I’m not interested in going back and it was a favorite downtown restaurant .

Had a reservation for 830p Saturday. We asked for patio seating and were seated next to the bussing station and two doors. Was not a great experience with waiters walking around us constantly, multiple glasses dropped throughout the evening. For a tab what was $290 with tip I expected a whole lot more.

My experience was going well until my food arrived. I ordered the “fruit of the sea” which is basically seafood and pasta. The pasta had not been seasoned and was overcooked. One of the mussels on my plate (out of 3) never opened. The shrimp tasted a day over its due date. The scallops were good but the sauce was way too salty. I didn’t eat more than 2 bites. The manager on duty condescended to me and my date, saying that fresh pasta has more of a bite (my complaint was that the pasta was overcooked, not undercooked...and fresh pasta doesn’t have more of a bite because it’s never dried.....) and that the seafood couldn’t possibly be spoiled because they get 3 shipments a week. I don’t like sending back food, but considering the 32.95 price of my plate, I was expected it to at least be edible. My server was amazing and admitted that she had issues with that manager in the past. If he had truly listened to my concerns and been more polite, I would’ve never written this review instead would just choose elsewhere to eat. But considering the reputation Andiamos has in Detroit, and the population they serve, I had to say something. I felt insulted and the condescension felt racially motivated. I’ve never had anyone try to “explain” poor quality food as a lack of education on my part and again, considering the demographics of Detroit, residents deserve better. There are Italian restaurants throughout the city that might not have the riverfront view but at least they have better food and caring management staff. Will not be returning.

Very disappointed with our visit. We chose this restaurant for the view of the water, and that’s about all we enjoyed. We had to ask for water refills repeatedly, bread was delivered to the table with our entree (and only after we asked), my salad dressing was served on my salad even though I asked for it on the side, red pepper flakes were served on a side plate without a spoon, I asked for rigatoni and was served penne and although my pasta was supposed to be served with oil and garlic... had to ask for oil on the side because my pasta was bone dry. Trash from other people’s tables blew around us on the ground.

The location was extremely loud with motorcycles racing past. Service was very poor with zero follow up. Dirty dishes left on the table throughout each course. Food portions were small with one dish being burnt. The bill was picked up before dessert was served. A huge disappointment!

Very nice place to go for a special occasion. I was not aware the gratuity was taken with a party of 2 so I left a tip and waitress ended up getting a 50% tip. I also thinks someone should have let me know that I had feee parking with validation. No one offered to validate so I didn't know and paid another 20 to park.

Social distancing was not done very well. The tables were too close inside and out. Also, the staff had on masks but most of them didn’t have them over their noses. I won’t be going back until these two issue are resolved or there is a vaccine for COVID-19.

We waited 15 min and no server showed up; we had to flag someone down. The place was packed in the middle of a pandemic with few to no people wearing a mask (because of eating and drinking, but the virus does not care). I am surprised and shocked that the restaurant would allow so many people inside with little social distancing and no masks. The food was OK - about average for Italian. I would not go back to this restaurant at least until the pandemic ends and even then would probably try a different Italian place.
