This place is outstanding! The atmosphere was pleasant, the wait staff very professional and knowledgeable, and the food to die for! I had the lamb shank with garlic rice. A-Maz-Ing and so much flavor. We will be coming back again for sure.
I love coming to Andina as the food is great and it does have a nice ambiance.
The food, as always, was delicious. The crab-stuffed avocado could have been more flavorful. The avocado wasn't ripe yet, so it was stiff, and a little bland. The spinach/cheese empanadas were delicious, and the arroz con mariscos was also very delicious. The pinot noir rose that you had as your selection wasn't very good.
I don't particularly like being downstairs, because to me it has the feeling of being on a sidewalk, and there are no windows to look out. Other than that, I really enjoyed my time.
See you soon, I'm sure.
Not a cheap place to eat, but still excellent food and service. Good for a once in a while splurge.
Hopefully you feel like it was worth it! We do try to be the place you think of when a special occasion is coming up, and you could always try our lunch/happy hour for the other days. Maybe we will see you again soon!
Wonderful restaurant, great food. Only dish that disappointed was the octopus. A little noisy at peak time Saturday night but that’s to be expected for such a popular spot.
Excellent food as usual! Unfortunately, it can get quite noisy, though.
We were a bit disappointed in the removal of some of the vegetarian dishes (My wife is a vegetarian and I am not) so when we found this restaurant just a few short blocks from our plays at Portland Center Stage. We park at 11th and Davis, walk to Andina, enjoy a great meal, then walk back to the theater.
The food and service remain top-notch at this Portland favorite!
And we really appreciated the extra dessert with "Felicidades!" inscribed on the plate (it was our 17th anniversary).
Fabulous as always. This is our new go to restaurant. The food is exceptional and never disappoints. Fantastic flavor and textures. We absolutely love this place. I can’t believe we just found it a month ago.
Thank you Loren! We appreciate the time you took to leave a nice review. See you next time!
Better then my last visit (many years ago) & that was stellar. Fined on tapas - not a weak offering in our selection though scallops while sweet lacked a bit of flavor. Will return when I’m in Portland again.
Inventive Peruvian tapas, great cocktails one of the best restaurants in Portland.
Made my wife's birthday special!!! Thank you. Love the attention to detail on the service and communication.
Gracias, Brandon! We appreciate the compliment, and hopefully we may see you again soon.
Wonderful innovative food! Great service. Who knew Peruvian food was this amazing!
So proud to be your first exceptional Peruvian food experience! It is a great cuisine with many influences. We look forward to your next visit!
Perfect dining experience.
Very glad that we could give you a perfect experience!
My absolute favorite place to go in Portland- I love the flavors and interesting combinations. They prepare food in ways I would never know to create, but yet every bite tastes amazing and delicious. The servers are attentive, bartenders are knowledgeable, atmosphere is warm and live musicians as masterfully talented (understanding how to be in the background and create setting and mood) Portland is a foodie town.. I feel I most try other places and I do, but this is the one where I keep returning over and over.
Pictures from over the last three months-
What a great compliment! It makes us so happy to know that you choose to come back, even knowing how many other great options there are here in Portland. We are very lucky to have such a great staff that take care of and entertain our guests!
My favorite in Portland
You are also our favorite. Thank you, and come back soon!
Different and remarkably tasty. Many varied options, including small plates and entree-sized portions, all with distinctive Peruvian flavors. Wait staff was knowledgeable and efficient. Well-deserved restaurant rating!
Thank you very much for the high praise! We really enjoy comments like this because we know that we gave someone a great experience. Hopefully you find yourself back here soon.
I thought my appetizer was delicious but my entrée was just so-so. The vegetables were way too hard.
So sorry to hear that your entree didn't meet your expectations. Could you tell us which one it was? At least you enjoyed your appetizer, and hopefully that warrants a trip back to see us.
Food was good - paella and empanadas were the best. Service was really great and the environment was lovely. However, the food portion was a little bit small and overpriced. The avocado crab/prawn salad was mostly salad leaf and had only half avocado and two prawns.
Hello Ting, thank you for the nice review! Sorry to hear that you were not a fan of some of our tapas. Hopefully next time we could change your mind!
Our server Nancy was outstanding! Great recommendations and very patient. Food was off the hook!
I will pass the good news on to Nancy for you, thank you for the kind review!
I was set to love Andina when making our dinner reservation. Upon arriving to the restaurant it looked nice and it had a good crowd. From the host stand we were taken to our table in the lower level. This is the level with a couple tables but mostly used for private dining. Service was very good although I felt a little rushed along the way. Beverages were good, food was good. My expectations of this place were really, really high as it was ranked high on several lists. So in comparison it disappointed. Come with an open mind and make your own opinion. With so many options in Portland I can’t say this would be my first choice.
Another great evening at Andina. Always good and my wife being from Peru really enjoys the food and drinks.
We really missed the humatas. We were looking forward to them and were a little disappointed where we found out they were no longer on the menu.
It is a great compliment when someone from Peru enjoys the food! Taking the humitas off the menu was a tough choice, but the chef and owners have their reasons. Hopefully something else on the menu may be able to take its place!
Thank you! We were trying Andina for the first time and celebrating a friend’s birthday. We not only had a delicious meal with amazing service, our birthday girl was treated to a special (and beautifully crafted) dessert that surprised our whole table. It was just an extra step that showed how much you care about your customers. We will be back soon to try more of the tasty menu choices!
Thank you, Sarah, for noticing! We get quite a lot of special occasions here at Andina, and it takes a great server to treat every table like its the most special one of the night. If you have time, you could tell us the name of the server if you remember, as we like to pass on good news. Thanks again!
Worth a try for Peruvian food. A little price-y but good service and atmosphere
Agreed, it can be pricey, but we do believe between quality and service that we may make it worth it! Thank you for your review, we look forward to seeing you again.
it was great!
No, you are!
Such a great spot. Server was fantastic. They brought out a special menu for my dietary restrictions and made me some really tasty vegan food! Service was exceptional, and they even gave us a free dessert when they learned we were celebrating a special occasion. Food was exceptional!
So glad to know that everything went well! If you'd like, you may let us know the name of the server so I can pass along the good news. See you next time!
This is a fantastic place with excellent service and fantastic food. The owner sometimes walks around and talks to people, a special treat.
Yes, Mama Doris is a staple here and she loves to hear about everyones individual story, while also educating some guests on Peruvian food, culture, and Andina. Thank you for leaving a nice review!
Awesome food and great service! Great location in the Pearl District!
Thank you, Rex! We are pleased to know that everything went well. See you next time!
Wonderful food, servers and management.
Has remained this level for many years
Thank you Jerry for taking time out of your day to praise our restaurant. We look forward to seeing you next time!
Food is overrated, outdated and sub-par for any foodie.
From the receptionist, the waitress, to the owner, everyone was welcoming, gracious and helpful and made our time relaxed and enjoyable. The food was amazing and I do suggest the scallops.
So glad to know that we had multiple staff responsible for you enjoying your visit! Thank you, Johnny, for your kind review.
The stuffed red pepper small plate was delicious! We had a Portuguese red blend wine was very nice and the seafood paella was outstanding!
Yes I agree, Emilie, the Piquillo Rellenos are great! It sounds like you had a great pairing between the wine and the peppers. We look forward to seeing you again!
Absolutely fantastic. Wouldn't change a thing about it. The food was incredible, the ambiance was great. The service was a bit rushed (seemed like they really wanted to turn the tables a lot quicker than we had anticipated). The food def made it worthwhile, but it would have been nice to not be rushed.
Hello Greg, we are glad we gave you a 5 star experience, minus the feeling of being rushed. We apologize for giving you that feeling, although hopefully next time we will have that taken care of for you.
Everything about the Andina experience was excellent from the waiter’s assistance to the food and drinks!
It is always nice to hear that someone really enjoyed themselves while being here. Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your meal!
Wonderful all around and amazing food as always
Thank you Brian, hopefully we will see you again soon!
We went to celebrate 4 b-days that occurred in August, and we weren’t dissapointed. Great food and great athmosphere.
Hello, I believe I might remember this table! So glad you enjoyed everything, and thanks for the nice review.
Great food. Friendly and professional service. Cocktails are great. Ceviche excellent. Will definitely go back.
Sounds like you enjoyed everything, Marianne! Thank you for the review, and we look forward to seeing you again
Excellent experience once again. Great food and service. Paul the sommelier made the dinner even better with his excellent wine pairing.
Thank you for the kind words, and I already informed Paul about this! We look forward to your next visit.
My boyfriend and I went there for our anniversary lunch (we took a weekend getaway from Seattle). Our server was Brandon and he was excellent. Very helpful with the menu (which was mostly is Spanish) and really friendly. We had the De Corazón (beef heart kebabs) and it was delicious! For our entrees we went with the Tradito Especial and one of the other Cebiches (I do not remember which one), and they were very refreshing. I would definitely go again.
So glad to hear that Brandon gave you an exceptional anniversary! He is a great server, and we are very lucky to have him. Thank you for the kind words, and we look forward to you return.
Our server, Manuel, was exceptional and made our meal fun and very enjoyable.
Thank you, Raymond, for reaching out to tell us about Manuels stellar service. I will make note of this in your profile and hope that next time we may seat you in his section again.
