Unfortunately, we were right in the middle of pandemic and leaving a review may not be the fair thing to do.
I just believe that if you're going to be open then put your best foot forward which really didn't happen during our visit! We were one of three tables on Saturday night..
All I can say it that food and service should have been much better than what we had!

Ambience is lovely. It was comfortable with comfortable seating. There is outside seating available.

After that it went downhill.

The appetizers: fried (fried spinakopita??!?!??), not very good and VERY expensive. $10-$12 for five morsels I could have gotten from the freezer section.

Main dishes: I had chicken-it was obviously cooked in advance and reheated because it was cold in the middle. I mean COLD, not just lukewarm. My husband had shish kabob. He ordered it medium rare. It was well done to almost burned. My son ordered lamb-his biggest love. It was so overloaded with sauce he lost the taste of the lamb. The sauce was not very good and very spicy, he says. He couldn't eat it--actually none of us ate our meals. We brought them home and threw them away.

The hummus was "different." I couldn't taste the chick peas much, but I could taste the garlic unto the next day. I finally asked for pita-there was no bread offered to go with it. I love hummus-I couldn't eat it and brought it home also.

The drinks were excellent and a good value.

The waitress was nice and wonderful. However, she was the only one there, and running inside and outside. There were several people waiting for carry out also that I believe she was handling.

The food was really expensive. We spent $144 (mind you, three drinks are on that bill). Lesson learned.

This was our first time here and my husband had heard good reviews. Not sure if COVID has had a significant impact but we were underwhelmed. We assumed all food was made fresh but it was not true - so ask before you order - as some is bought frozen from big box or wholesaler. The bottle of wine we were interested in was not available, which was fine. A substitution that was brought turned out to be a bottle you could get for $9 from target. Glad I looked it up before I decided.... The chicken on a skewer was very tasty and was a large portion. 2 additional servings for me for the week!. Husband said lamb shank was bland. Service was ok. With so many options for dining around Cincy, not sure I would go back. Hope this was an off night?!

Went on Valentine’s Day, big day for restaurants but they had reservation openings. Checked out menu prior to booking.
Once we arrived found out menu posted on open table was inaccurate. They had very limited menu in person and prices were doubled.
I called them out on it and after debating with them they agreed I could order an item they advertised on open table but wasn’t on their limited menu.
When the bill came, they charged me double but hadn’t mentioned that until the bill arrived. To turbo charge their horrible service, with about a dozen customers still enjoying their meal, they started sweeping and mopping around diners as if we were inconveniencing them.
Food was great but I’d have them certify the prices before you order.
They scammers from the old school

Really good food, I haven’t had much experience in Mediterranean foods so I really enjoyed it. Everyone working there is friendly and nice even during a full restaurant. The decorations are great and it has maps of different countries to see where everything relates to each other. If you go early enough you can catch the belly dancer and almost every room can see her performance.

Our meals came out in good order, plenty to eat & take-away. Nice choices, with good descriptions of what to expect. This was our 1st time at a Lebanese / Meditteranean restaurant. The belly dancer was an extra plus -- friendly & engaging, not annoying us when our group wanted to chat. I would have liked some more sauce, but otherwise, no complaints.

Hummus and pita. Amazing appetizer. Made fresh in house. Amazing marinated chicken and rice to die for! I love it there healthy too. Bonus! Sat night a very happy Belly Dancer comes around for entertainment. So fun! Bakliva or terimisu for dessert! Yum

We were the only customers in the restaurant. The waiter/waitress were very nice but the food was lacking in taste, hard to eat. The rice on the plate was easily at least 2 cups and was cold. No one needs that much rice and it would have been nice to have some other vegetables to compliment the dinner.

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 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.
