The servers are outstanding, efficient, attentive and pleasant. The ambiance and decor is cozy. The menu has a good variety and also offers a prefixed menu, an excellent deal. The wine list is extensive and cocktails are delicious. In addition, the presentation is exquisite.

The service and food were great but our table was horrible. We reserved a table for 6 and when we arrived our table was not ready. The staff tried to be helpful and get us a table quickly but that resulted in us sitting at a table between the big and small dining rooms right in the middle of the service traffic. It is the worst table I have ever been seated at L'Andana. I would rather wait than sit in that location but I didn't want to make a fuss because we were out with friends. Servers were bumping into our table and I watched the wait staff enter/exit the kitchen all night. Not a great experience.

Ordered drinks at bar but never received them. Ordered medium rare steak but received almost raw. Steak was very tough. Waiter had sweat dripping off his forehead. Waiter didn’t seem to care about us at all. It was our anniversary but received no acknowledgment from anyone even though they asked us when we made the reservations.

We chose L'Andana to celebrate my wife's birthday. This highly rated Italian Steakhouse had great ambience and service. The food was excellent except for the rib eye steak. We expected a high end steak (given the prices) but although it was cooked as ordered it was relatively tough and not on par to other high end steak houses. There are certainly better places if you're going to get steak but if you're intending to order other items I'd recommend L'Andana

Food is consistently wonderful hear along with great ambiance.
Tuna tartare, truffle fries and beet salad all delicious.
I had salmon for my entree, cooked beautifully it was moist and tender.
Apple crostata is perfect for this time of the year, crust is delicious. Pana Cotta and Brelundi is good as well.
Only complaint was that it took them a while to come over and take our drink orders then get the drinks to us, about 30 minutes.
The 4 of us were there for close to 3 hours. Which I typically wouldn’t mind since it was ladies night with friends, but I had my 8 year old with me (she loved being there), but I felt like we weren’t attended too as some other tables around us.
There were only 2 other parties when we left around 10:20 PM.
Other parties came in after us & left before us.
Waitstaff was professional, once they came around to us.
Overall, good experience will go back, their timing was slightly off with attentiveness (but courteous, professional and good food made up for it).

Never disappoints! It was a coincidence my first visit to L'Andana just happened to be Restaurant Week. Our family was there celebrating an occasion. The drinks were great, great selection of wine, Caesar Salad scrumptious and the Ribeye - well, that's how a steak should taste! It was an easy recommendation to my group of 6 professional women (colleagues) who meet every couple of months for good food, laughs and decompression from the work we do. L'Andana has become our "go to" restaurant. Steaks are perfect, try the bone-in filet; pastas dishes are scrumptious (even for the one person who does not is not a pasta eater!); salads and sides - everything is a tasty adventure. The only problem is saving room for dessert.
L'Andana is definitely a 5 star experience.

This is my second visit. While the service is still excellent I felt the quality of the food isn’t what it used to be. My friend got Sirloin steak and it was decent but the accompanying weren’t all that appealing. I had Swordfish and honestly I don’t think it worth the price tag. The fish was so tiny and buried under lot of vegetables, it should be the star of the dish. We had the entree gnocchi for appetizer. While it was delicious, I wish the portion is a little more generous
Still debating if I should come back here again

It’s an upper end Italian steak house, which is a great concept. This group generally executed at a high level. The surprise were the pasta dishes. While they sounded good, they lacked the souls of good authentic pastas. Still a fun, but expensive outing. I will go back and probe the pastas more thoroughly before a final decision.

We have dined at L’Andana a few times and I have always raved about L’Andana. I say it’s the perfect place with impeccable service, ambiance and great food.

Unfortunately, this experience fell short and I was so disappointed. Upon arrival, we were told that they had moved another couple to a new table because they didn’t like the table they had been seated at. We obviously were given the table that they rejected. It was a deuce along the wall. Crammed in against a wall and very close to a loud, table of 4. On my Open Table reservation, I noted that it was our anniversary. This was not a romantic table. In the past, we have been seated corner to corner at one of those L shaped banquets in the center of the DR. Why would the maitre d’ tell us that he moved the other party? Very poor judgement on his part.

Kevin did not greet us for 10 minutes although he took care of the 4 top and the other deuce in the same alcove area as us. He never acknowledged our presence nor did any staff member walking by even thought we sat with water and menus for 10 minutes!

My husband had to twist his head to see Kevin who is too large a man to squeeze between the tables that he is supppsed to be waiting on. After ordering our drinks, it took another 10 minutes to have them delivered. During this time, Kevin never asked to take an appetizer order. His service was “blah” and below L’Andana’s standards. Our anniversary was never acknowledged.

The best staff members were the two people delivering the food and the valet. All 3 were friendly, outgoing and appeared genuinely pleased to serve us.

The place still looks nice but the music playing was similar to rap and took away from a fine dining experience. The food was good but not “outstanding”. What used to be an evening without any flaws was an evening with many and only a few things “right”. So sad because I always love L’Andana and was looking forward to a memorable anniversary dinner.

We were a table of 6 and 3 guests ordered steak, wasn't good, had sauce on it that they did not know about and was cooked a little too much. The server was good, personable but the service is always really slow we were there for 3 hours. That has happened all the times also.

Fancy and expensive. The food is outstanding. The carpaccio might be the best tasting dish I've ever experienced.

The wait staff, while generally attentive, did not rise to the occasion. They are friendly, but young and inexperienced. Just be prepared for a little fumbling by the hostess and longer than usual waits between visits to your table. Far from terrible, but when you spend $100/person on dinner, expectations are high.

My wife and I CAN'T wait to go back.

I took my wife to L'Andana for her birthday. She likes it very much but we don't go there often. The food was excellent and the service was very good. In particular, the bartender did a nice job making drinks and also serving them to us and the charming young man (dare I say busboy) who cleared our table were exemplary. We'll be back.

I haven’t been here in about a year. We had a party of 6 and the restaurant wasn’t that crowded however there was a wedding in the back room. When our entrees came out 3 people got their meals then we were told the other 3 meals would be 10 minutes because the food runner dropped the tray...while waiting I had ordered the Tuscan Steak and cut into it. I asked for medium rare and the steak was medium well. I sent it back and it came out after the other meals that took 10 minutes longer and the steak was raw and cold on the inside. I did not order anything else at this point. It was quite awkward as we were having a business dinner with clients...the manager came over and apologized and gave us dessert on the house.

I don’t understand how a premier spot at least it use to be had this many issues with only half of the restaurant occupied??
