Absolutely the best hummus ever made. Our food was delicious and the rice was perfect not over cooked. Our drinks tasted wonderful. Our service was outstanding.
We will be back again!!

Waitress not friendly or flexible. Her way or the highway. Asked for a non garlic option for sauce. She just said no. One word. Food was marginal and expensive. Will not return.

Andy’s is always so consistent. Delicious! Fresh homemade cooking. The occasion was a special dinner that I normally would have hosted by we are under construction. I reserved for my group and everyone was so pleased. The service is friendly. The atmosphere is quiet so we enjoyed easy conversation.

Andy's has been around awhile and the place is old .
It was chilly in the dining area , could have been cozier.
The food is good, shish kabobs and pita bread is delicious.
Service is attentive and friendly.
Not many patrons on a week night. Hopefully more on the weekends!

I will return, thank you!

We went there on a Tuesday night and were one of only a couple tables. The service and food were excellent. I would recommend anyone to try their famous chicken.

Great food and service. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. One-of-a-kind place! Try the Lebanese coffee - it's super special. I'd go back JUST for that!!! Wonderful date restaurant, we will be back!

We always have a great meal at Andy's and feel like we are being treated like family. The mixed Mediterranean appetizer is a mouthwatering way to start the meal, with a bottle of Lebanese wine. We've enjoyed so many entree's, but the lamb kabob's with rice are a favorite. We always end sharing a baklava and Lebanese coffee. Pre and post theatre, for a late lunch on our way out of the city, or passing through town coming from the airport, Andy's is our go-to spot.

The rice was nothing special - the meat had way too much lemon. I have had much better Mediterranean for half the price they charged. Service was lackluster.

Food sucks, service was pathetic. They also add a 18% tip to all orders because they know how bad it is. I hated my entire experience.

The Mediterranean/Lebanese food was very good for us. Granted we have limited experience with this type of food. They have a belly dancer who danced by each table that we found enjoyable.

The food was so fresh and flavorful. Service was a little slow until the gentleman who was taking care of us was dealing with a smoke detector that wouldn’t shut off and the younger server took over. Overall wonderful experience.

Hadn't been here in years, but was pleasantly surprised how good it was. Now, we plan to go back. It is close to the Playhouse in the Park, and parking was available on the street. We really liked all the food....Stuffed Grape Leaves, Hummus with warm pitas, and the big platter of Kebabs. It was fun to try the Chicken, Steak and lamb!!! There was even a belly dancer that strolled by for fun entertainment.

We were almost the only patrons in the restaurant. We ordered an appetizer, salad and dinner. Before we could finish the appetizer, the salads arrived. Before we could finish the salad, the entrees arrived. The server opened the bottle of wine and poured each glass instead of offering a sip to see if it was corked.

The price was too high for the moderate quality of food. I won't stop back anytime soon.

New Year's Eve 2018 Prix Fixe Dinner hopefully did NOT represent the kitchen's ambitions and abilities. We were seated next to a loud and boisterous table of 8 with music turned up to drown out their conversation, and consequently everyone else's. The service was lackluster, BUT it is a neighborhood establishment with a solid following. I look forward to going back for lunch to see if their more day-to-day product is more conducive to an excellent dining experience.

My salmon was excellent, as was my husband's beef kabob. However, I would have appreciated more vegetable options with my meal. A member of our party asked for his beef medium rare and it was cooked medium well. He was only offered a drink or dessert. His meal should have been free. I have been here several times and have always been pleased. Their stuffed grape leaves are especially good!

The Mediterranean sampler was fantastic but the falafel platter was a bit dry, the Theresa wrap with gyros was not quite what we were expecting for gyros meat, and the wine was old. Seemed a little overpriced for the quality.
