menu choices are varied and excellent. Had the calamari, caesar salad and petrale sole. This is my "go to" restaurant for business and entertaining.

Delicious food. Good vibe. Great staff. Had a table on the patio. Ambiance was awesome. Not so busy weekday, which gave great privacy too. Will go again!

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.)

Everything is always amazing at Andrei’s! Did you know it is a 501(c)(3) non profit company? They donate profits to other organizations involved with eye disease research.

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.

My friend and I have eaten here a number of times for lunch. The food is high quality and the menu is updated.
We had the same waiter as previously - "Shin" - and he was very friendly and professional.

I've been eating at Andrei's for quite some tome. One of the cool things was their rewards program where you would get points for food purchased there, and you could then redeem those points for future meals. Because of their new Cash register system, they have stopped this program. The food is still really good, but that little extra made the slightly higher prices a little more palatable, knowing you could redeem points in the future.

Like other reviews, I think it was noisy. Sometimes hard to hear our conversations. Everyone very happy with the steak dinners. Server recommended the watermelon salad. The tomatoes were mushy and the watermelon past freshness. Two, small broken pieces of cashew. So I was disappointed since it was recommended. I also picked it because we staying at the Hotel Irvine and the Marriot--easy walk.

We were looking for a special place to celebrate our daughter receiving here Master's Degree earlier in the day. Food is important to me. And I don't like dining at chain restaurants. A place like Andrei's is why. Delicious and interesting while not presumptuous. Wonderful meal worth the trip from Boston.

Have been going to Andrei'a for year or so and have never been disappointed. This time was to celebrate my girlfriends birthday as well as to catch up with some old froends(I no longer live in the area) so everything went better than I could explain. Our server Kyle was knowledgeable and incredibly friendly, as well the bartender Steve was fantastic and was very helpful in helping us finding a drink we'd all enjoy. I always recommend this location and will continue to.

The venue is lovely, and our server was attentive; however, the food was fair. I had sea bass served over risotto and the fish was not very flavorful (appeared to have been previously frozen based on the texture), and the risotto was a muddled mess with no distinct flavors. My husband had the scallops and they were a bit better. The dessert was terrible. The carrot cake was dust dry and without any frosting; the beignets were filled with a very unappetizing cream cheese mixture. Over all the meal was a disappointment, which was a shame as the venue is very attractive. There were only a few other dinners in there.

It was very noisy and the service was very disappointed. Ryan was our server and he was not pay attention to us. When we call him or looking for him for request something, Ryan was talking with other crews. It was very disappointed and his service was very poor. We do love to have meal at Andrei's often but not anymore. We would like to looking for other place rather them go back there again. Thanks.

Andrei's remains one of my favorite places to dine for business and pleasure. The acoustics allow for quiet conversation but the environment is open and urban feeling. The wait staff is always menu-knowledgeable and friendly. The farm to table, locally sourced produce, meats and fish are always excellent. And the fact that proceeds after operations support charities makes me feel good all over!
