We were 5 minutes late for our reservation and they told us we could not have a high top that we reserved.

Things only got better from there. Food and drink were wonderful and Tyrone’s attentive service was the best part of the night.

We love L'Andana for our special occasions. They had a pasta special which was amazing! We think they should put that on the menu regularly.

L’Andana was fabulous, as always. It’s pricey, but worth treating yourself occasionally. Tuna tartare was excellent, Caesar salad delicious (we split both apps), and the steaks were cooked to perfection. We got a glass of champagne and a specially plated desert to celebrate our anniversary. Our waitress, Alexis (Alexa?), was terrific.

L’Adana is fantastic. My coworker and I went to L/A for dinner over the summer and returned this past week. We had the same server. She remembered my coworker’s drink order from months ago! This restaurant understands and follows through with impeccable attention to detail. I cannot recommend L/A enough.

Food was excellent. All four of us got what was ordered and served hot, both steaks and pasta meals.
The bread was so good we asked for seconds.
It is definitely on the expensive side, so not a place we would go to regularly.
But for once in a while or special occasions, I recommend it.

Enjoyed L’andana for my daughters birthday. Robert was our server and was an excellent representative of the brand. He was super attentive without rushing us and really enhanced our experience. Heirloom tomato salad was simple, fresh and perfect. My prime sirloin was cooked to perfection and well composed with grilled baby Romain and tangy dressing. Cornish game hen was served on a pile of undercooked, strong red onion. Big disappointment. The Bolognese was also a miss lacking depth of flavor and reminiscent of canned spaghetti. Zeppolle and molten chocolate cake were among the best I ever had. While there were a couple low spots, overall a great experience we will try again.

We had reservations for outdoor dining. They put us right next to a 4 person table and they were loud and certainly not 6 feet.
There were 2 other tables available. When we asked they said they were reserved for four people each. Half hour later they sat 2 people down after telling us it was reserved.
Service was excellent. Food ok. Thanks
Our last time going there.

The food was first class. I will recommend it to everyone.

We went last night for anniversary dinner and sat on the patio which was nice and also quieter than dining room. We have been to L’Andana a number of times in past and both felt disappointed this time starting with service. The server seemed inexperienced and not very attentive at all. The menu also felt tired - there were no specials, no veal chop which I was looking forward to, and very limited pasta selection. Although the food we got (salmon, filet) was very good it just didn’t stand out as special l the way it had in the past. Not sure if you do they are feeling the pains of post Covid staffing issues etc but not sure we will be rushing back soon.

Our waitress Alexa was outstanding, we had eaten at Rare in Encore the night before and had the worst service ever, she was great. She was friendly, prompt, informative and never had to ask for another drink. The food was outstanding too. I would highly recommend this restaurant and if you can get Alexa for your waitress, you’re in good hands.

We had a reasonably large business dinner with 7 attendees. I always like the food and atmosphere at Landana and was not dissappointed on this visit, but there was a noticeable slowness of service, Salads and Apps came very quickly but as the meal progressed, the slowness became more noticeable, especially when wrapping up with coffees and dessert. This will not stop me from having more business dinners there, just consider it minor constructive criticism.

It was a special dinner for the two of us and I had read the reviews here - that even post-covid that the service was still spot on. We did not find that to be the case and it put a wet blanket so to speak on our special evening.
Our reservation time was not honored; people around our table knew it was our anniversary because the staff told them so - weird - I guess it was because those guests asked for our table location.... strange... it caught me at least off guard and I felt like our privacy was not a priority.
Food is phenomenal - but for the price and the lack of good service it is not worth it. Our server was missing in action alot! It took almost 20 minutes for him to come over and ask us what we would like to drink.... then the rest of the evening he was hard to find. It took almost 2 plus hours to have dinner.... it would have been fine if we didn't have other plans that evening that we had to reschedule.

Our disappointment was mainly with the service which was extremely slow. No one let us know if there was a reason for the slowness. I have eaten there several times and never had this issue. Had to look for someone to give us water during the meal. When sharing a salad or other “first” other restaurants we’ve been to will split the choice in the kitchen. At such a nice and pricey restaurant that was expected but it didn’t happen.

We hadn't been to L'Andana for quite some time and figured that Dine Out Boston was a good opportunity to go back. The atmosphere was still very nice, including the light jazz playlist. We did have a problem with our table due to it being close to the door leading to the patio with lots of servers going by and the door continually squeaking. We asked to be moved to another table and were happy to see how quickly the restaurant agreed to reseat us. The beef carpaccio was the highlight of the food selection and the salmon was very good, too. The Tuscan steak was all right but was not up to the quality of a steak house. Probably should have had the rigatoni dish since we were at an Italian restaurant.

Do not order the Chicken Milanese unless you want a very dry, entree. This particular entree was not befitting a L'Andana offering.
Dessert offering was a Caramel Panna Cotta which was swimming in a salted carmel syrup that camouflaged the sublty of the Panna Cotta (which was very good).

We were here to celebrate our 47th anniversary. Our server, Stephani, was terrific, my meal was good, my wife's was not. Her Tuscan Steak was fatty, tough, and difficult to cut. We aren't complainers, and didn't. Stephani offered to remove the meal from the bill, to which we said no, but now wish that we had her do it. This was a Restaurant Week menu item, and we question whether a lesser cut of steak was provided her, as opposed to that on the regular menu of the same name. Needless to say, we were disappointed with our visit here and won't hurry back.

PLEASE PROVIDE THIS FEEDBACK TO L'ANDANA. THANK YOU.
