    We had my son's rehearsal dinner here several years ago and it has remained one of our favorite dinner venues. The dining area is small and intimate. Noise level is conducive to actually carrying on conversation with your partner. Food and service are always good. We do miss seeing the eggplant rollotini on the menu. And the penne ala vodka.

    My husband and I are not into the loud bar scene- this restaurant is located near FSU, but offers a nice, quiet, intimate atmosphere. Really good food, affordable prices, nice wine list, something for everyone. Our only complaint was that our food was being brought out too fast (our salad arrived while we had just started on our appetizer), but when I requested slower service, our waiter took care of it. We really enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back.

    This is the second time i've eaten here, the food is very good but the portions are average in size. The ingredients are good and visual display is pleasing. The service is good but sparse and best suited to a leisurely dinner. I think the restaurant tries to be more than it is but i would eat here again but not on a regular basis. The prices are ok for the quality of food but not a great value for money. Its a good 7 out of 10 for me.

    Overall nice meal. Customer service was excellent! Greeting could you some enthusiasm, but we didn't have to wait. Meal was a little pricey, but it was a designed 4 course meal. Braised short rib was phenomenal. Desert was lacking something, as two of the three options were edible. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants a warm, romantic environment for there loved one.

    I spent 240$ on dinner for two and have never been more rushed. The waiter hovered over us when we were clearly talking intimately so he could pressure us to order quickly. I understand the need to flip tables on a busy night but when you're a paying customer and it's a special occasion no one should be treated like that. Also, the food was mediocre at best and extremely expensive.

    Went here for the first time with another couple for a nice night out. It's a small restaurant only open for dinner below Andrew's Grill. When you enter the dining area you feel warm and welcome. It's cozy with eclectic yet upscale design and furnishings with jazz music playing. They have a fairly significant wine list and a good variety of food on the menu as well. Everyone's food was good and not terribly overpriced. It wasn't necessarily the best food I've ever eaten, but it's a cool place to check out if looking for a local restaurant with a little more character. We had the short ribs, dijon brie chicken, paella, and filet, all of which were good.

    I will start off by saying the food was great however the service was terrible. Not sure if it was because we were not dressed up but they treated us like we had a disease. The waitress did not say a word to us just poured our water. I actually watched a group of waitess and the manager talking for about 20 minutes and pointing fingers at us. The staff was so unfriendly that it made us very uncomfortable

    Two friends I was hosting chose the first night of legislative session, thus it was a crowded, raucous night. My actual disappointment however was that the chef couldn't handle cooking properly with the crowd. I ordered same wonderful three nights earlier grouper dinner. Was terribly overcooked vegetables and fish. Service with same waitress was about the same - not particularly attentive but calm and efficient.

    Visit started well. Handled drink orders very nicely. Meals were ordered and one guest made a request to modify presentation. Specifically very light sauce on the pasta. The meal that was served was swimming in sauce. When the stealth server finally returned he inquired whether the guest wanted the meal wrapped. Made no query as to why only the chicken was eaten. An uneaten plate full of pasta, swimming in sauce raised no red flags. The guest was too polite to make an issue out of this with friends from Texas as the guests. She did comment after leaving that she never wished to return and I am certain she shared her observations with all three bridge clubs this week.

    Great place for a special occasion, a romantic dinner, or to impress a new client. Excellent wine and craft beer list. The atmosphere was cozy and pleasant, and the service was very good. We had an issue with one of our appetizers and it was handled immediately. We had several appetizers, salads, and desert, and everything was excellent, fresh, and tasty.

    We went for a family dinner during FSU parents weekend and it was perfect. We were celebrating my birthday and it was close enough to campus for a short drive yet far enough to get away from all the campus noise and activities to enjoy a special evening with our family. The food was delicious and all our dishes had amazing flavors. The desserts were a delight and everything was presented beautifully. Andrews 228 was a treasure because the ambiance was warm and inviting. It was a unique experience to be downstairs in a serene setting away from the hustle and bustle on the street. We would definitely go back again for another special occasion.

    Andrews 228 is the nicer restaurant that is downstairs from Andrew's Grill. We went during FSU Parents Weekend so you had to have a reservation if you planned on getting in. We were seated as soon as we arrived and received good service while we were there. The atmosphere was nicer than most restaurants in Tallahassee. The food was just okay. Most of us had the grouper which did not come out as hot as I would have liked. It was not a wow dish but I am definitely a food snob. Other people I spoke with who ate there said they loved the Dijon Chicken which I almost ordered and should have. They also loved the Rib Eye Steak.

    This is a Tallahassee gem. The valet parking saved us since our evening date coincided with a 'Downtown Get Down". The Snapper was wonderful and the flavors complex. The Shrimp and Grits were absolutely a delight to the taste buds! Using Open Table to make my booking helped me make them aware of our time constraints for our meal (we had a concert to attend!). I recommend Andrews 228 to anyone wanted comfort food with class!

    Way over-salted and overcooked my grouper - as a matter of fact, everything was way too salted. When I got the re-cook, it was actually Snapper Filet - guess they didn't think I would know. Two very different textures - at my second piece of fish, but because it appears they reheated the original sides, they were still salty, dead and not good at all... Sorry to be so harsh, but man, it's restaurant 101 stuff...the entire party's dishes were equal failure as well. Nothing tasted fresh - maybe that's why it was over-salted to much.

    We were celebrating our 17th anniversary so wanted a "foodie" experience. Andrew's did not disappoint, especially considering they have revamped the menu. We started with martinis and I must say the drinks at Andrew's are always spectacular. You definitely get a good drink at a very good price. For the appetizer, or small plate, we chose the tuna tartare dish. It was amazing, albeit small. The two of us shared but if you have a hearty appetite I would suggest each person have their own. The bread selection was very good with two house-made compound butters. One was infused with truffle oil and the other citrus I believe. Amazing. Especially amazing were the small biscuits. I had to stop myself from eating all of them! Thankfully, Olga, our server, whisked them away in the nick of time! Speaking of Olga, she was quite friendly and very responsive through the entire service, offering food and wine recommendations. I was torn between the shrimp and grits and the chicken fried pork chops. Olga recommended the pork--I was extremely happy that I followed her advice! First off, the portions were huge. Enough for two people to split. Second, the presentation and flavors were out of this world. Highly recommend this dish! My husband had the quinoa paella. A very unique and flavorful take on the Spanish classic. We had a great moderately priced pinot noir from the Willamette Valley which was an excellent pairing with our entree selections. We skipped dessert as we were both stuffed from dinner (and took leftovers home too!). Overall, I would give 5 stars across the board. Great job on the new menu! I can't wait to return!

    This is the second time we've eaten here. The fist time we were with a big group for New Year's Eve. We were very excited we for reservations for our large party downtown that night. The service was good, as it was with our second experience, however, both times we are here the food was not good. Apparently they have a hard time cooking steak. The first time we had a few people in our party have to send steaks back for being overdone and last night I ordered the Filet medium-rare and it came out medium-well. It was terrible. We had a wait a while to get our food so when the steak finally came out I didn't want to send it back because I was starving. I showed the waiter and he agreed it was completely overdone. But good thing I had a coupon for a BOGO, because we were only comped my martini and nothing else. We even ordered dessert, but they didn't offer to even comp that! We won't be back.

    I was expecting to be WOWed by my experience at Andrews 228, but instead it left me a little flat. The food was good - but that is all - just good. The steak was cooked as I requested and was very tender, but had no flavor. The mashed potatoes were also very bland, the Caesar salad was just a plate of lettuce. Others in my party complained about the same thing. For the price I was expecting more, and they did not deliver. The service was good, the wait staff was very professional and nice. I just wanted more from the food. I also noticed that my water glass felt gritty on the outside like it hadn't been rinsed thoroughly, and there was something on my bread plate as well. I don't have any desire to return.

    Serendipity brought us to this great prelude to the spelunking at Florida Caverns we had planned early next morning. The ambiance was that of a gorgeous underground cave with a cellar vibe to it. We were warmly welcomed and courteously seated. We had the shrimp la fayette and the penne a la vodka -both very well prepared - the eggplant and tangy sauce added great finesse to the shrimp and the sirloin tips were good as it gets with the pasta. We ended with a flaming creme brulee - brought to our table that way -the citrus ginger flavor giving it a delicious kick.The prime downtown location on a paved front courtyard was steps away from our hotel across the street -and made for a great dine-out after a pleasant five hour drive up to Tallahassee.
