We were sat, party of 8, in back of restaurant and then waitress left for a very long time to then only bring bread without drinks. We had a coupon for a buy one get one for ny strip steak. Was told could not use them bc of the special going on. We were good with that answer. The waitress then came back out and said she would “buy” our dessert for us because of this. She Brought a dessert tray out. We all picked one, including the kids at our table, and when she returned with what we thought were going to be the desserts she said she could not do that now but would give us just one on the house? She then asked If we just want to purchase what she had us pick out. We were very confused that this happened. Service was poor throughout our brunch and not what we remembered from the times we were here before.

5:00 to 6:30pm; Saturday August 31, 2019. Most disappointing in all regards compared the others in this otherwise fine restaurant chain

FOOD: I had linguine, olive oil and garlic, with the addition of two jumbo shrimp. This is a hard dish to mess up, yet the pasta was gummy and lumped together - like it had been thrown in boiling water and never stirred. All the oil was in the bottom of the bowl, not poured over or spread/tossed throughout the pasta. The closest garlic got to my dish was writing the word on the waiter's order pad. The shrimp were perfectly cooked (!!!). My Lobster Bisque was cold, not creamy - too watery. My wife had the Plant-based Potato Gnocchi. The published menu said it came with "Fresh tomatoes, kale, sweet peas, roasted peppers." The Gnocchis were cold and only passable as Italian in flavor ... the accompaniment was corn, peppes, mushrooms and onions. Pellegrino and Pinot Grigio during the meal, and the dessert were all very good. My wife and I agreed the coffee was the weakest we've ever had anywhere.

SERVICE: The nicest thing I can say is the waiter person was either having a bad personal day or had quit but not yet left. A manager came by within moments of our food being delivered to our table and asked how everything was. We said we didn't know yet as we'd not had our first bite. The manager promised to return later to see how things were. We were there another hour but the manager never returned.

All-in-all ... it's a mystery to us how this place has earned high customer rating. We're not that hard to please yet feel this dining experience was a wasted $102.87 ... including a respectful courtesy tip.

We drove from Ann Arbor, MI to celebrate a friend's birthday in Detroit. The atmosphere was exactly what we wanted. Our server Ginny (sp?) was very attentive. We all got one of the specials. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly as I ordered. The meat melted in my mouth. The asparagus and potatoes were buttery in my mouth with just the right texture. Food was delivered to the table in a timely manner. Our drinks never went empty. I left pleased with and full from our dining experience.

We had a very inexperienced waiter that was unfamiliar with their 30th anniversary menu. He was very slow, uninformed, rude, and even spilled water on our clothes. The only upside was the food and music. We will not return to the Downtown location again.

My wife and I were in Detroit from Ludington for Comic Con. We decided to celebrate my wife's birthday early by visiting your restaurant. What a great place! We had reservations an hour later but was able to be seated early outside with a waterfront view. Our waitress, Shanese (sp) was amazing. She never wrote anything down which is always impressive to us haha. She was funny and took excellent care of us. She answered our questions and was chatty and made us feel right at home. She even had a surprise dessert plate for my wife! Thank you for a great experience and food. We will certainly be back again.

The food was great! Me and my date had the bone in ribeye. The service from our particular waitress was subpar at best. The waitress didn’t introduce herself and was very short with me and my birthday dinner date. My date had been to Andiamos before but it being my first time we both were very disappointed by the service. What made our service seem worse was the service being given to other sections by other wait staff was actually very good.

The food was great as always. We had a bad server. She was not attentive and after informing her it was my wife's birthday, she told me she would bring dessert to our table.

Had dinner here tonight after a long day of travel. Booked a table for three at 5:30. Looked nice, the restaurant looked out over the river..,.or so we thought. However, they had a separate dining area in the back. We were seated in a room with no windows, looked like a banquet room. It had about 15-20 tables, and a kitchen or something was on the other side of a thin wall, lots of dishes dropping, pots and pans banging, etc. We were the only ones in the room. We asked to be moved to the main dining room, but were told that area was for customers with reservations. I quickly reminded them that we too had a reservation via Open Table. The hostess replied “that’s the problem, if you make you reservation on line you will end up back here if we are busy. If you had called instead we would have seated you in the main restaurant area.” And that was that, no very matter of fact tough luck type of comment. Waiter was very nice.
