Disappointing menu and service for Valentine’s Day... with many choices out there, this restaurant needs to focus on customer service! The patio door was open with cold air coming in... we asked more than once to please close the doors. Value could be better too, the special could include one glass of white, pink or red wine with the meal. I have eaten here many times but this night was not your best. I expected more... we had to ask another waiter to pay our bill as it was getting late.

Went for Valentine’s Day pre fixe dinner. The oyster shooters and lobster dish were really amazing. I’d go back for both anytime. The desserts were just ok. The mousse was the best, the macaroon was stale and the dipped fig tasted like perfume. Service was fine but it did take a while to get a simple water for my daughter. The server came to our table 3 times each time saying “I’ll get that water...” ambience was nice and seating very comfortable. I’d go back especially for those oysters.

Great food and yummy signature cocktails. Went as a family and all ordered very different items: burger, steak, kids menu pasta, and I had the vegan GF pasta dish - it was amazing!!!
We will be back!

Andrei's is one of those restaurants I really want to like. The food is great, they change their menu often, and the dining area and bar are lovely. So what's not to like? Consistently, the service. For instance, we'd finished our dinner before the wine that was to accompany it showed up (it was a tough choice--cold fish with wine to wash it down, or a hot meal with no wine?). It would have been more understandable if the restaurant was crowded--but there were hardly any tables filled. Maybe other diners have had similar experiences and are now staying away?

We sadly concluded that it will be a while before we try Andrei's again. My recommendation to them is to hire a really good manager who stays on top of the service situation, both in the restaurant and at the bar (my daughter had a horror story experience with a pre-arranged happy hour group outing a year or so ago--no one would bring them the bill, even after repeated requests!). There's just no excuse for service like that in an otherwise high-quality restaurant.

Celebrated my 50th Birthday with 20 of my family and friends. Ambiance was great, our group was lively and our waiter was great with everyone. I'd been to Andrei's before for lunch and a special event but not for dinner. The food was delicious and their 1/2 off Bottle price on a Saturday night was an added plus. All of my guests had a great time and many indicated going back. As a non profit executive, I value and appreciate any business that is "non-profit" and that was part of my decision to support and host my guests there for my birthday (and of course for the delicious food and drinks added to our reasons). Cheers to 2018 and happy that Andrei's will be a part of my birthday memories this year!

Good food and service. Easy to make a reservation for 7pm on a Saturday. Restaurant is probably not busy on weekends as it's close to office buildings. Parking is the parking structure in the back (away from the street.) Just walk thru the breezeway to the restaurant. Entrance is on the first floor and the restaurant is up the stairs. The Andrei's Chop Salad salad was really good and so was the ahi with cauliflower rice special. My husband mentioned it was my birthday so they comp'd our dessert. We splurged (calorie count) on the beignets with cinnamon whipped cream and carmel sauce for dessert! They were warm, tender and easy to share (8 small balls.)

We ate here prior to heading to the theatre, and our waiter was really great with asking us about our departure time and making sure our food, then bill was out in time for us to leave for the theatre on time. I had a specialty cocktail (apple crush), it was lovely, as was the appetizer my husband and I shared, which was the dip duo (pesto, arugula, feta and hummus with warmed pita.) The pizza of the day was a margherita, and that wasn't anything special. Too doughy and oily, no basil.
My only complaint is it was very cold in the restaurant. Cold! It's a November evening, and it felt like the air conditioning was turned on.

I went to try out their cheeseburger, since it had been recommended to be as one of the best in Orange County. I've had a lot of good burgers, and this one was a 10. Excellent, attentive service, and a very nice ambiance. As good as the burger was, I can't wait to try the steak and seafood. Would make a great date night.
