This is such a wonderful place! We ate on the open air deck as the sun was just beginning to set. The music was soft yet upbeat. The Market Board entree was superb- appreciated by vegetarians as well as those who had ordered meat as well. The Dream Bar dessert was sinfully delicious!! To top it all off-- wonderful service from Patrick- our kind, informative, upbeat server! Thanks for a great experience! More...
The food was good and they offered a good variety with the entree selections. The service was poor, our server was not attentive at all, and did not check back with us once our food was served, to see if anything additional was needed. Once we were done it took longer than expected for the plates to be cleared and to be offered a dessert selection. More...
We recently had our wedding reception at Andrei's conscious cuisine. We love that this venue not only provides locally grown, in season, and organic food. This restaurant/venue gives all profits to three different charities, such as reading to the blind, guide dogs, and wildlife sanctuaries. We were blown away by the food. They were able to accommodate our need for providing vegan and nonvegan options. Working with Brianne and Jenn throughout this process they were responsive and very accommodating to our needs. We had our wedding reception in the great hall, and used the standard heather grey linens they provide at no extra cost, brought our own centerpieces and cake, and we worked with them with the guest count, dance floor, and other arrangements. We had a total of 100 guests at our wedding and the great hall was perfect for that size. We also had the 15x16 dance floor which was perfect for our guest count. For the food, the appetizers were bacon wrapped dates, vegan cucumber hummus rolls, vegan bruschetta, and vegan spring rolls. The salad was a California baby greens with balsamic dressing (so delicious)! The main courses were beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and vegetables, chicken saffron orzo with broccolini, and quinoa potato vegetable kabob with pea hummus. The dessert was vegan fruit tart (which everyone LOVED) and we opted to use our cake for ceremonial purposes and not distribute it out. Also the dessert is included in the plated plan! For the bar, we did the premium shelf with a $2500 limit. We did pass the limit and raised it up a bit more, not we didn't go past $300 more of that. What is cool about Andrei's is if you set a bar limit and don't meet it, they won't charge for the rest of that limit. My guests wouldn't stop raving about how amazing the food was! They said that it was by far the best food they have ever had at a wedding and they loved the bar and how that was set up. Truly I am so happy that we used Andrei's for our day! More...
Amazing food and great service! We really enjoyed our lunch!!
The service was incredible! We sent back our meal because the pork was tough. The manager and chef were so accommodating! Thank you! We appreciate the professionalism and attention to detail . The scallops and cheesecake dessert were great! Loved the decaf coffee too! Thank you. We will be returning some time soon! More...
I can't begin to tell you how good the food is and how much food they serve you. This should be a Michelin starred restaurant. I bow down to the chef and up again with flair and divine respect. Aaaaaaamazing cuisine. And to whoever owns this place kudos to you. Please go eat here. You will leave full, happy and impressed. Porfirio the chef is talented to the max. More...
Great place for birthday celebrations!
Outstanding service and exceptional menu selection. We came here because of their vegetation selection. Beautiful decor, very open and intimate. Highly recommend for business and date night dinners. More...
The restaurant is beautiful. The service perfect and the food absolutely unique and delicious.
The waitress was great and the food also
Great location, atmosphere, food and service
We thoroughly enjoyed an anniversary dinner at Andrei's. The calamari was among the best ever with a very light dusting of flour and a lemon garlic and butter sauce. Simply wonderful. The cheese and charcuterie board was abundant with meats and cheese and lots of goodies to go with. We also enjoyed scallops that were perfectly cooked - brown butter crust with juicy moist interior. It was a memorable meal in a sophisticated setting. More...
It was a very pleasant first/time dining experience for us at Andrei’s. Our server was attentive and personable. We were seated at the patio and it was perfect - the noise level, ambiance, space between tables, etc. Food was amazing! I ordered their pork chop and soup of the day (Asparagus Bisque)... to die for! Cooked to perfection! The ingredients mixed well together and nothing was overpowering. My boyfriend got the steak and he loved it. The portions were just enough! Highly recommended! More...
Love the food here. We typically sit at the bar to eat since we really like our regular bar tender lady we have had several of their dishes and all are really good but especially love the pork chop. The specialty cocktails are very good as well. Drinks can be a bit expensive so try and get there at happy hour for a bit, that selection is very good and prices are very reasonable!!! More...
Always excellent service and food for lunch.
I love going to the bar and having dinner with friends. It's gorgeous at sunset with the light coming in from the ocean. I went there with my gf and her husband recently. I loved the Margherita pizza and chicken! Heavenly!I shared both with a friend after watching a couple hours of tennis at Palisades.We were hungry and this exceeded my expectations for taste and deliciousness. Such a fun time and can't wait to do it again. You can drive up and valet right there at the main entrance. More...
Food and service were excellent. Can't wait to go back. My guest, whose birthday we were celebrating, loved it! Thank you.
Me and about eight of my friends decided to come here for the last day of the OC burger week event. This is always been one of my favorite places to have happy hour because of the fact that it's right by my house and the food and drink here is outstanding. They make this one drink with Chilean spices in it that is out of this world.The staff here is great and I love the fact that all the proceeds go to a wonderful charity. The layout of this restaurant is fantastic. They have indoor and outdoor seating and can accommodate small or large groups. They have happy hour between three and six and they have something called the happiest of happy hours from 3 to 4 and it is half off of the happy hour price. This is something that's so unbelievable because their food taste better than most places do at their happy hours and you're getting it for half the price. Sometimes I think something like this is illegal to do. LOL.As for the dishes I had the Portabella mushroom french fries which are number one in my book. I have to get this at least once or twice on each visit. Another go to is the ceviche. And I usually have that with the fish tacos as well. Are usually eat probably everything on their happy hour menu along with about 3 to 4 of the Chilean spice drinks. And yes they are that good!Since it was OC Burger week I have the crabcake burger which was absolutely stupid fantastic! And one of my buddies that was with me at the lamb burger which he felt was pretty good as well. I think they need to put that crabcake burger on the menu for ever because that was one of the best crab cake Burgers I've ever had. Well actually, it's the only crabcake burger I've ever had and it was quite delicious! If you're ever in the Irvine area and you're looking for a good happy hour and it's about 3 o'clock. Head over to Andrei's and you will not be disappointed! More...
André I’d is always a delight. It is one of my favorite places in Irvine for a business lunch. The food is always delicious, and the atmosphere is always business casual perfect.
We had an wonderful dinner! Will come back for sure
My wife and I stopped by lunch... we're glad we did! Highly recommend patrons order the basket of toasted bread - YUM! The bread seems to be toasted over an open flame so it has a delicious, flavorful char. Also, highly recommend the chicken cob salad with sherry vinaigrette (the sherry vinaigrette GREAT!). Unfortunately, the chicken was a little dry and needed more seasoning. The vegetable caponata was delicious. All in all, good experience and will return to try other dishes. More...
Excellent food and great service. We enjoyed Burger week and found it to be very good. Thanks!
It is always a pleasure and a certainty that anyone I take to Andrei's will enjoy the food, the quality of the service and the environment. I bring all our out of town and out of country clients there because I can count on the manager and service team (Rob and Shin among them and the hard-working and capable bus people) to take such good care of us that guests are always favorably impressed. Thank you! More...
Excellent restaurant! I came from out of town for business and had a truly great meal. Rainbow trout and Rhubarb tart were recommended and they were fantastic. Sit at the bar - ask for Dena!
Andrei's is one of my favorite restaurants and I was happy to introduce it to friends. One of my party was enthusiastic about inviting her lunch club to Andrei's.
I liked the overall experience. It all started with the valet parking and the posh entrance. The service was attentive without being pushy and the food was outstanding while being affordable. Would definitely highly recommend and this was all happening just during lunch. More...
Great food and service as ALWAYS! We conducted a successful business meeting over dinner. Our waiter was great and the food was fantastic. Thx!
I am always satisfied with the high standard of food and nice service of this restaurant. :)
Great service on the patio. Food was ok, but the ambience and level of service made up for it.
Becky Webb Couch
Waitstaff is great, too!!
Exceptionally good customer service good happy hour bites Ceviche and Pomme Frites very good
Nice ambient atmosphere, decent food, good location. Great service
Very good Brunch.Salmon toast with eggs and capers were amazingCrab Benedict was good but not great.Sauce was only ok.Chocolate decadence looked like Dove bar, but filled with delicious chocolate mousse would satisfy any chocolate lover.Service staff super friendly and competent. More...
excellent food. enjoyed ling cod for lunch, great bar for cocktails, good wine selection, good/friendly service, pricing appropriate for quality of food and selection. Excellent salads also, as well as soup and sandwich combinations. More...
Andrei’s is one of those places that if you didn’t know it was there you’d just drive past it. That’s a mistake. We have been coming here for many years and have never been disappointed. While the menu is fairly limited, I’ve always been able to find something to order and each time have gotten an outstanding meal. Service and ambiance match the food quality....so make the effort to come by and try their food....it’s easy to find and worth the stop. More...
Very friendly staff and amazing food. Very happy I discovered this restaurant on my weekend trip visiting.
Outdoor patio is a nice oasis after work. Diverse food menu (check out the lamb lolipops or fish tacos!) Great for happy hour with coworkers or a romantic dinner after the work crowd iz gone.
Had a large party from the trade show during restaurant week. Tried a few of their restaurant week specials and everyone was impressed. Can be hars to find, but worth the trouble. More...
I had the privilege to dine at Andrei’s on main Street in Irvine on my last night in town. And it was a perfect way to end my 4 day stay. Their second floor, outdoor patio was the perfect setting, too. A sufficient number of umbrella’s kept as cool and shaded until the warm sub dipped behind the tall buildings. My server made the evening that much better. Kind, considerate, fun. I started with their Tokyo highball, with Japanese whiskey. That was the least appealing aspect of the entire evening. The mint, lemon and soda water dominated. The barrel aged Manhattan was much better. I followed that with a tasty Malbec that paired perfectly with my two small plated. More...
Been herea few times and never disappointed. We had our company event here and staff was great. The food and drinks are amazing and is conveniently right off of the main intersections. One down fall is the parking. They have valet however, on a busy night you can wait for a long time. More...
Come here frequently for business lunches and after work happy hours. The food is always super fresh and delicious and the people are friendly. My favorite dining choices are the portabello mushroom fries, the chopped salad and the salmon. Everything people order always looks amazing. More...
Fantastic food and even better service! Thank you for being consistently perfect!
Overall great experience. Two suggestions: Please do not sit a party of six next to the bathrooms when the restaurant is empty. I did ask the hostess to move us and she did reluctantly. We had to wait awhile for our cocktail order despite what appeared full staff at bar. Food and atmosphere was excellent. More...
Best hamburger my wife has ever had she said. I was able to get the lettuce leaves instead of the buns due to my dietary choices as well and they were very accommodating! Spicy Chilean was startlingly good cocktail-great ending to our days! More...
Andrei’s is my favorite restaurant in this area. Since I don’t cook, we eat out almost every day. Consequently we go to Andrei’s at least once every couple weeks. The food is excellent, unusual seasoning, fresh clean food with beautiful presentation; ambiance simply beautiful and the service impeccable. We like the patio seating because it’s nice and quiet. I give it 5 stars every tine!!! More...
Absolutely wonderful! We immediately felt like “regulars” although it was our first time there. The food was amazing- especially the scallops and beet salad. Definitely going back soon!
Great hidden Gem for a romantic dinner or a happy hour value
Great food and service. Been coming several times and always good. Many healthy options.
We dined early on Saturday evening and enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the service exceeded expectations. We both ordered filets and they were done to perfection as ordered. Salad and sides fresh and tasty. We will return. More...
We had a really nice time. It was a party of four. We went there because it was suggested by Barclay Theatre (when we got tickets for a show), and they included a few appetizer card to entice our group. The Dodger World Series game was on in the background which provided some additional fun atmosphere. As it happened for us, we were there for Happy Hour (which was a pleasant surprise), and instead of us each getting an entree, we were able to get 6 or 7 different tastes off the appetizer menu and the food was great! (If I had to be critical in any way, it's not overly romantic, but I don't think that is the purpose of the restaurant, so no biggie). Great for pre-concert dinner and drinks!! More...
Great location and ambiance.. Food was good and drinks are great..
The service was outstanding. We had such a good time we decided to extend our evening by sitting at the bar. Our bartender, Patrick, capped off our already great dinner to make it a memorial occasion. Will definitely be back soon!
Food and cocktails were wonderful and had an amazing apple tart dessert!
I was pleasantly surprised and impressed by this restaurant’s food, wine selection, service, and ambience. This restaurant does not seem to be crowded and I don’t quite understand why. It is a beautiful restaurant, with delicious and healthy food, great selections, great wines, and surprisingly great value. I highly recommend this restaurant. More...
It had been a little while since going to Andrei's and I regret it. I forgot how good the service and food is there. We had a wonderful time and were still commenting on how good the food was the next day.
Delicious food from start to finish. Creative preparation of halibut over polenta with brussel sprout pesto that was phenomenal. Giant pork chop cooked to perfection (we asked for pink and they delivered) over cannellini beans, tomatoes, and herbs. Even the chicken noodle soup was exceptional. It was rich and tasty with firm veggies. Great service too! More...
Dinner was excellent. Cocktails not overpriced. Service was excellent. Not rushed. Atmosphere was elegant and quiet.
We had a party of 8 on Tuesday night. Andy, our server, was excellent and the food was delicious!! We’ve been there many times for happy hour and always have a great time!! Free corkage was very nice, too!!
Our English waiter (who we have had several times) is awesome.
We enjoyed atmosphere. Service was beyond. Attentive and kindness. Feel like I was at 5 diamond Hotel. Receptionist and waiter was extremely professional. Organic but creative. Seafood salad two kind of dressing was great. They have happy hours. I would love to return. More...
Great food, great decor and ambiance and great service. I'm definitely coming back for both business and personal lunches and dinners. Thank you!
Great food. Great service wonderful birthday experience for my wife
Two words: Portobello fries. Seriously, the most addictive snack we have ever had! The happy hour at Andrei's is amazing! The same painstaking quality with which they create their dinner fare is also in each happy hour item. A great value in a beautiful room! More...
The food was great and we had the best service!
This place is great for dinner, especially when planning a large group dinner. It’s quiet at dinner, because it’s more of a lunch place. The food and service are always great, but it is on the pricey side. More...
Rob, our waiter, was exceptional....full of good cheer, surprises, and amazing attention to detail.
The food was delicious and the service was amazing. We ordered a variety of food and had a party member with an unusual food allergy. The server and the kitchen both were great with the allergy and even removed a sauce from the shared desert without a specific request to make sure there were no allergens. I couldn't ask for anything better. More...
Andreis never disappoints! Great atmosphere, great service, great food and drinks locally sourced. It is casually elegant and has become my go-to place to entertain new visitors
The BEST Andrei's chopped chicken salad ...my favorite lunch!!
Excellent food, service , ambiance. Sat outside patio perfect night.
Delightful lunch on the terrace with delicious, creative food and an excellant waiter!
Had a wonderful lunch with my wife. Although it is not inexpensive, the service was very good and the food was exceptional. We would eat here again
Great food and service as always. The ahi special today was nothing short of fantastic. Thanks!
An outstanding restaurant with locally-sourced cuisine. Everything is delicious, and the service is great.
Great food. Service was not the best but adequate.
Tried 3 different wines when I was here, the selection is awesome. Really had a good time the other night. staff was friendly and helpful also.
Loved our dinner, ambiance, and service. the food was excellent and our service was very attentive. The dishes were like works of art.
Client lunch near her office. Great food and service. Lemon mint iced tea is a treat. In Irvine? Worth checking it out!!
We ended my husbands birthday here, after a last minute decision, and oh boy! what a great decision it was indeed! The ambience was perfect, the waiter awesome, and the food absolutely delicious. I had the Sea Bass which was perfectly cooked with an excellent fennel sauce, the plate beautifully decorated too! Hubby had the roast chicken which was the best we have ever tasted, he had to share a little! We will be back for more!!!Thank you for the perfect end to a wonderful day! More...
Birthday dinner had a great time !!!
Everybody at Andrei's is terrific! This is and always will be my "go to place" whenever I want to meet up with friends in Irvine.
Food is amazing! My favorite is scallops. I love dessert as well!!
This was a birthday celebration so we selected Andreis because it has a high quality menu in a fancy setting. We had lunch.I had the New York steak which was outstanding and my friend had the salmon that was also very good. The service was excellent. More...
Andrei’s never disappoints, wonderful as usual! It’s quiet and you can carry on a conversation without needing to scream which is very important to us.
Diane E Choe
Beautiful, peaceful, outdoor belcony with fireplace, semi private area for our very large group, very good attention and service to our table. A variety of tasty seafood selections. Rack of lamb served as an hors ovre. So tasty! More...
Family getting together for weekend.Wait staff very attentive. Atmosphere is great.Food is delicious...
Ambience, food, service were all great! We highly recommend this restaurant if you’re looking for a special occasion or just taking the wife to dinner.
Very nice lunch. The waiter, Shin is so attentive and always smiling. The salmon was cooked nicely, though I like mine cooked a little less.
The upstairs location gives the place an pleasant airy feel. It was too cold and damp to sit on patio, but want to give it a try on a sunny day. Our meals, NY and filet, were prepare as we ordered and we particularly enjoyed the veggies - very fresh. Best surprise was the 1/2 price Saturday special on Silver Oak. We’ll be back for another date night soon. More...
An unexpected find in suburban Irvine. The space is modern and definitely not your typical Irvine cookie cutter chain restaurant. Very good food and service in an inviting space. Definitely will go back. More...
Always great service and the menu always provides new and fresh options. One of my favorites.
Great service - loved our waiter and his adorable British accents, awesome healthy food!
Swordfish was delicious and the drinks were strong. A fun environment for sure
Best kept secret in irvine
My favorite go to place. Always a great meal and experience
Rob is our favorite waiter IN THE WORLD!!!!!!
A non profit restaurant is very unusual just like this restaurant is! I really enjoy our business lunches here. They make your experience memorable just like the reason why they started their restaurant. Each menu item is equally as good...so order based on your favorite selections because they will NOT disappoint! I highly recommend them! More...
Laurie is great!
The ambiance was extraordinary, the food options were commendable and delicious, ah and the cocktails... simply amazing!
Contemporary decor, friendly service and more Mediterranean oriented cuisine. Good for after office hour drinks and dining, valet parking included
The food is excellent with a diverse menu. Great wine selection and house specialty drinks.The service staff are all highly trained and friendly. Ryan and Alex always go out of their way to make our dining experience perfect in every way. Ryan, the manager is always at hand checking on the patrons with a warm smile. Recommend Andrei's highly. More...
Excellent service, food and ambiance! Very much worth trying, if you are looking for a vey nice meal for business or for that special person in a classy setting!
My only complaint is I’m positive my reservation required a quiet table AWAY from the kitchen and restrooms, but to my surprise I got a table right next to the restroom entrance. I didn’t complain.
I am a frequent guest for a reason; namely, every experience has been excellent.
The restaurant was a bit quiet for Saturday night but the service and food was excellent.
I always love coming here! The atmosphere and service is always amazing! Love the staff and the customer service :)
I really enjoyed the ceviche, the salad had a lot of wonderful ingredients but came off a bit sweet, a bit of acid would have helped.
Everything was terrific!
One of the best spots in Irvine. The waitress was EXTRAORDINARY!!! Highly recommend..
Andrei's was a good find for a business lunch that was close to my prior appointment. Farm to Fork type of restaurant. creative menu with very fresh, seasonal ingredients. Very attentive and knowledgeable staff, good service, good food. More...
Visited here for the first time while on a work trip to Irvine. Great cocktail menu and just a good food. Loved the outdoor patio area. Our waitress was fantastic. I will be back next time in Irvine. More...
Always good when we come here. And not crowded on weekend evenings. Great for last minute dinners before a concert.
Great food and service! The story behind this restaurant is amazing!
Good solid restaurant. My dining companion and I both had entire salads for lunch meeting. Both were fine--nothing outstanding. Good, central location for a lunch meeting in O.C. More...
Food was wonderful, server and manager friendly, prices were fair.
It was pleasant! Easy menu. Casual. Tables are far enough apart that it’s not crazy noisy.
Dinner was delicious. Service was phenomenal. Wine list was impressively priced. I highly recommend this restaurant & look forward to returning.
Always happy with the experience here! The atmosphere and energy for me is just right!
The food is great, and the service is awesome! It is a good place for Happy Hour too.
Great place. A little off the beaten track so easy to forget about. Don’t.
Sat on Patio. It was a bit cool but they turned the heater lamps on for us. Visited during Orange County Restaurant week and for $20, we had a three-course meal. Could choose among three appetizers and three entrees and then they brought dessert ( a small carrot cake with fresh berries), which was very good. My friend and I decided to be adventurous and try new things; so we had the squid appetizer and the mushroom bolognese with carrot ribbons. Both were very tasty. It was just kind of hard to look at the squid...lol. The service was attentive. It was very quiet, as we were the only ones on the patio. Valet parking is complimentary for lunch; $6.00 for dinner. Would like to try it again on a summer evening. More...
Good food, poor service
Excellent ambience. Innovative food and presentation. Excellent service. Nice place for large groups.
Always a great experience! Very happy AGAIN and AGAIN...
This was both me and my boyfriend’s first time at Andrei’s and the entire experience was amazing! The ambiance was perfect for our late Valentine’s Day dinner. The food was delicious, with such great attention to taste. The amount of food was absolutely perfect. It was just enough to fill us up. We ordered the bread pudding dessert and that was honestly the cherry on top to our night. The best part about this experience was our drinks. The bartender was great! I asked for a specialty drink, one that is rare in this area and the bartender nailed it! I’m happy to say this isn’t going to be the last time Andrei’s will see us. We will be making our way back very soon. More...
It was a wonderful evening and the ambience, service and food was great
Went for Valentine’s Day pre fixe dinner. The oyster shooters and lobster dish were really amazing. I’d go back for both anytime. The desserts were just ok. The mousse was the best, the macaroon was stale and the dipped fig tasted like perfume. Service was fine but it did take a while to get a simple water for my daughter. The server came to our table 3 times each time saying “I’ll get that water...” ambience was nice and seating very comfortable. I’d go back especially for those oysters. More...
Rack of lamb, the best
It was Nice place to have a Date Night, Enjoy Delicious dishes with Red wine with awesome customer service!!!
Friends in from out of town loved the restaurant!! Food drink all was excellent!!!
Wonderful food and service
We had a wonderful British server.
Beautiful and amazing food and all around a pleasure to visit..
One of my favorites for lunch meetings, old friends connecting, and new friends starting. Great food and compt valet parking for lunch. A must try, and then you are hooked. More...
Had the chopped salad with salmon on a Monday night. Service was attentive and the food was cooked to perfection.
Great food and yummy signature cocktails. Went as a family and all ordered very different items: burger, steak, kids menu pasta, and I had the vegan GF pasta dish - it was amazing!!!We will be back!
Great food and service!
Nice ambiance, good food and wine selection. Employees are nice and capable.
The service here is always excellent, this business lunch was exceptional! Our waiter was great, a little bit of humor and knowledge of the menu.
Great lunch and excellent service from Rob as usual. We will be back.
Exceptional food. Very creative and quality dishes. Perfect ambiance for a work lunch.
I took my team here for a business dinnerZ the food quality was amazing, with beautiful presentation and exemplary service. The value was tremendous as well, especially for Southern California. I would highly recommend. More...
Celebrated my 50th Birthday with 20 of my family and friends. Ambiance was great, our group was lively and our waiter was great with everyone. I'd been to Andrei's before for lunch and a special event but not for dinner. The food was delicious and their 1/2 off Bottle price on a Saturday night was an added plus. All of my guests had a great time and many indicated going back. As a non profit executive, I value and appreciate any business that is "non-profit" and that was part of my decision to support and host my guests there for my birthday (and of course for the delicious food and drinks added to our reasons). Cheers to 2018 and happy that Andrei's will be a part of my birthday memories this year! More...
Very good food and neat atmosphere. The bill seemed a bit high but I suspect the all-organic farm to table approach must cost a bit more.
I guess they started charging $6 for the bread basket!!! And they dont tell you until it shows up on the bill!!!
The new year menu is not really worth it
The food was delicious and the atmosphere very comfortable and we all had a great time.
Andrei's is simply a great place to dine, lovely interior, great food and wine selection, and the service both at the bar and our waiter were fantastic. I highly recommend this dining experience. Read the menu to appreciate how it was named. More...
Very quiet, nice seating arrangement, good food and close to South Coast Performing Arts theatre for six of us for dinner.
Everyone was terrific! Our lunch was delicious. The GM came by our table to greet us even though the restaurant was busy during the lunch hour. I love this place! I will be back again! More...
Always a great spot for business lunch. Good, healthy food. Great service and quiet, relaxed environment.
Beautiful building great staff. Had the best bartender in So-Cal food is awesome
menu choices are varied and excellent. Had the calamari, caesar salad and petrale sole. This is my "go to" restaurant for business and entertaining.
Burger was awesome. Pizza... I wouldn't order it again. But the service was great and the Xmas decor was awesome. Would definitely go again.
Delicious food, attentive but not intrusive wait staff
Delicious food. Good vibe. Great staff. Had a table on the patio. Ambiance was awesome. Not so busy weekday, which gave great privacy too. Will go again!
I love to take my clients here for business. It is always a great experience.
Good food and service. Easy to make a reservation for 7pm on a Saturday. Restaurant is probably not busy on weekends as it's close to office buildings. Parking is the parking structure in the back (away from the street.) Just walk thru the breezeway to the restaurant. Entrance is on the first floor and the restaurant is up the stairs. The Andrei's Chop Salad salad was really good and so was the ahi with cauliflower rice special. My husband mentioned it was my birthday so they comp'd our dessert. We splurged (calorie count) on the beignets with cinnamon whipped cream and carmel sauce for dessert! They were warm, tender and easy to share (8 small balls.) More...
Everything is always amazing at Andrei’s! Did you know it is a 501(c)(3) non profit company? They donate profits to other organizations involved with eye disease research.
I went to try out their cheeseburger, since it had been recommended to be as one of the best in Orange County. I've had a lot of good burgers, and this one was a 10. Excellent, attentive service, and a very nice ambiance. As good as the burger was, I can't wait to try the steak and seafood. Would make a great date night. More...
Fabulous place—food, ambience, service. I can’t believe this place isn’t packed every night!
Food was excellent: delicious, very tasty, healthful, fresh, quality ingredients. Service was excellent: server was not intrusive and came at the right times, very helpful as to specials and other choices, attentive, experienced, sociable! Location and atmosphere excellent!
Very good food & service. Nice variety on the menu.
I when there are two times ,I like the service the first timeSecond time didn't in my expectations!!
First time dining for dinner. Entree selection was okay - enjoyed happy hour menu selection much more.
We enjoyed our dinner at Andrei's. The food was delicious and the service was attentive and friendly. It was not crowded, and the noise level was low, which we appreciate.
Incredible Andrei's Chopped Salad, the best service in all the land!
We enjoyed our meal. Good staff. Good bar service. Nice place. Consistently good.
My friend and I have eaten here a number of times for lunch. The food is high quality and the menu is updated. We had the same waiter as previously - "Shin" - and he was very friendly and professional.
Good food. Large after work bar crowd, somewhat noisy. A little pricey.
Salmon salad is amazing! And I am in love with the mint infused green tea!!
Great staff, nice area, creative food especially crab cones, and wonderful to be in.
Outstanding as usual!
Like other reviews, I think it was noisy. Sometimes hard to hear our conversations. Everyone very happy with the steak dinners. Server recommended the watermelon salad. The tomatoes were mushy and the watermelon past freshness. Two, small broken pieces of cashew. So I was disappointed since it was recommended. I also picked it because we staying at the Hotel Irvine and the Marriot--easy walk. More...
We were looking for a special place to celebrate our daughter receiving here Master's Degree earlier in the day. Food is important to me. And I don't like dining at chain restaurants. A place like Andrei's is why. Delicious and interesting while not presumptuous. Wonderful meal worth the trip from Boston. More...
Perfect outdoor ambiance, beautiful food, unobtrusive and kind staff. Great business dinner spot, and I'd come back for cocktails!
Our experience started off very poor since we had to get up to get acknowledge after 20 minutes at our table. Waitress apologized and made up for the error. Overall we were happy.
Have been going to Andrei'a for year or so and have never been disappointed. This time was to celebrate my girlfriends birthday as well as to catch up with some old froends(I no longer live in the area) so everything went better than I could explain. Our server Kyle was knowledgeable and incredibly friendly, as well the bartender Steve was fantastic and was very helpful in helping us finding a drink we'd all enjoy. I always recommend this location and will continue to. More...
Space is a 5 star
Service is a 5 star
Drinks get a solid 5 (granted each time I stuck to Whiskey drinks)
Food is where is drops a bit. My experience has been okay to great depending on the visit (4 times so far). All of that aside the great moments make it worth going. More...
I love Andrei's! Food is great, ambiance is terrific, always a wonderful dinner.
Good food, good service, wonderful place for casual dining
Great salads. I have had the grilled salmon twice and it was cooked just right. Fresh organic ingredients in the salads and a good variety.
Delicious, healthy, classy, well priced. Can't go wrong here! Went most recently for birthday lunch and they gave us a delicious carrot cake dessert. Staff is amazing too!
Andrei's is always a great business lunch choice. Food is excellent, locally sourced and beautifully prepared, attentive staff and the proceeds after operating expenses support charities. It's all good!
Great presentations and food delicious-- service very slow-- not enough staff. Loved everything but the slow service. Had to ask for someone to take order, had to ask for a cooler for the white wine, had to ask twice for someone's missing cocktail
Scrupulous service, quiet attention to every dining need, grilled salmon with Greek yogurt sauce and berries on the side....unusual and filled with flavor. Perfect choice for me. Piece de resistence was dessert: peach cheesecake filled beignets. Divine!
Only caveat is the noise level. Difficult to converse but I must say the food was worth it.....and what's a restaurant for! More...
Thank you so much. We had a great time and the food and service was excellent. Would definitely recommend.
I am an Executive Assistant that made the reservation. Actually, two of my Managing Directors took client personnel to lunch. They said it was great! Thank you.
Andrei's remains one of my favorite places to dine for business and pleasure. The acoustics allow for quiet conversation but the environment is open and urban feeling. The wait staff is always menu-knowledgeable and friendly. The farm to table, locally sourced produce, meats and fish are always excellent. And the fact that proceeds after operations support charities makes me feel good all over! More...
For my birthday this year my husband took me to Andrei's and I loved it. The ambiance, the delicious food, the service.... a perfect evening.
Nice choices for all taste buds, good flavors to dishes without relying on salt! Very willing to accommodate for food restrictions, attentive & professional service, a bit bland on the decor/atmosphere
Loved our evening. Dina was our server and she made the evening enjoyable. Hats off to the chef as well. We had reservations but were quite surprised that the place wasn't packed. The balcony was a perfect place for our group of 6. We will be back! More...
Very nice lunch with 3 friends. I hadn't been in a while and I must say the food, ambiance and service was excellent. This is one of my favorite places in the airport area.
Rob is THE BEST WAITER IN THE WORLD and we appreciate the Andrei's Chopped Salad. Shannon and the hostess are wonderful as well....
Food was excellent, service was great and the outdoor patio is awesome
Best Chopped Salad in Orange County!Best service in Orange County! ROB is my favorite waiter of all time! I have no complaints!!
Enjoyed the atmosphere and my lunch. The service was excellent!
Service was a bit slow, and this was on a slow evening. Food was good, though a bit pricey. My issue is a lack of menu consistency. When traveling for work, it is important to keep costs down. The menu available on OpenTable was different than what was presented at the restaurant. Someone needs to be responsible for keeping things consistent. More...
Very good food. Great service. I understand proceeds go to non profit. Can't go wrong here.
I meet clients here quite a bit as it's centrally located which makes it convenient to many locations. The food and service is always wonderful.
A great place for a family dinner and a Birthday Celebration!
The food was superb! Everything arrived at the right temperature and a perfect amount of seasoning.
Great place to eat for business or personal meals.
As always, great service, great food, spacious seating booths.
The service was great, the food was amazing, I was pleased.
Food was great, as was the service. I really liked the ambiance as well - very nice decor and very classy. The energy was good, and could still easily carry on a conversation. Il definitely be back.
Nice place with open floor plan, sustainable food menu that supports local farms, good happy hour with unique drinks and a charitable mission for the restaurant. Worth visiting.
Have been here several times and always satisfied. Will return .
We loved the portabello steak fries and the roasted chicken was unbelievably delicious. My sister got the ZUCCHINI CAPONATA and I would get that next time. The wine deal is the best deal in town. More...
We had a fantastic experience. Food was excellent and service was too notch. Our original reservation was for 10 people and expanded to 20 upon arrival. Our server was so gracious and made the accommodation flawlessly. We will definitely be back. Food was phenomenal as well. More...
I really love this restaurant and the food, but for such a nice restaurant, they play their music way too loud. The atmosphere is relaxing, but the music is not relaxing. I would come back here more often if they would adjust the music to something more pleasant. Why do restaurants today all have to have blaring music? More...
Our Mother's Day Brunch this year was exceptional thanks to the service and delicious food at Andrei's. The special Mother's Day Brunch menu was extensive and everything looks amazing. The food came out as expected, and was cooked perfectly, and amazingly delicious. The bottomless mimosa was amazing. Thank you for a wonderful Mother's Day out! More...
I have never been disappointed with a meal or the service. Parking is easy, once you figure it out - the valet is sometimes overwhelmed, but the self-parking area is nearby, though not initially apparent. I go there to eat, not park, and consequently am delighted. More...
I have been here many times and have always enjoyed the atmosphere the food and the service. Both of us just had the Andreis salad which was just perfect.
Great food, great service and good location!
Had an important business lunch and the server was outstanding—polite, thorough and non-intrusive in doing her job. One of the best waitresses I have had in many years. Colleagues enjoyed the food, and portions were appropriate in size and the food delicious. Would recommend highly to anyone looking for a quiet spot for lunch at 1 p.m. during the week, or anytime for that matter. More...
Rob is THE BEST WAITER ON THIS PLANET!!!!!!!!! He totally rocks!!!!!! He makes the experience amazing!!
Andrei's is always great. The food is excellent, and the Chop Salad can't be beat.
Only had an opportunity to come here for quick appetizers and drinks, but had a great impression. Service was solid, as was the food and the design of the space and layout was very hip and modern with tall ceilings and lots of open space. Oysters were great and the jidori deviled eggs are not to be missed! More...
I LOVE going to Andrei's! It is my go to place for special birthday celebrations with my friends! The food is always fabulous, the service phenomenal and the ambiance warm and relaxing!
Nice relaxing dinner with wife. Food was different and good.
Great customer experience
Andrei's menu is simply superb. Innovative, and something for everyone. We needed a meal for a high protein / medical diet, a vegan, and a veg. Every time I go, the service is superb. This is one of my absolute favorite restaurants, and it consistently innovates and surprises. Note: don't miss dessert! More...
What a beautiful restaurant! Such an elegant and spacious interior - high ceilings, giant retractable windows and even an open air terrace with several artsy fire elements. We had a delicious dinner with four friends on the terrace. Local halibut, Moroccan short rib, pear compress, a smoked salmon and goat cheese appetizer, and of course a couple champagne cocktails (!) - a really fun and wonderful evening. Kudos to this spot all-around. More...
One of our favorite places for a nice meal. Always great quality and service.
The atmosphere was excellent and the service was fabulous! Food was very good and we will definitely recommend!
Excellent food, service and ambience. An excellent value your can always count on.
Great place for business lunch. Can get a bit noisy once the dinning area is full but it is tolerable. They also have a lovely patio seating area when the weather is nice out.
We have come several times now and the food and service are consistently outstanding! We will be back again and continue to recommend!
Consistent quality of food, excellent service and great ambiance. Not cheap, but I keep going back so must be worth it.
Wonderful, fresh-tasting food. A gorgeous restaurant. Booths for quiet conversation.
Chef is very creative and cooking is very acceptable and very eatable. Service Not Good : Dinning has no supervision : the server was not attentive at all, very, very slow and was not at the floor (disappear).
The food were great but service was slow. We had been served water and food after a while. However, the New York Steak and Carrot cake were great!
Food was good but not outstanding. We ordered a dish of mussels and it was lukewarm. The mussels were dainty. Very disappointed by this dish. Informed the server and his response was, "oh, really." He said he would tell the Chef. More...
Andrei' is a nice, relatively informal venue with an emphasis on Mediterranean cuisine.
Food was outstanding and love that this is a non-profit!
Best bone in ribeye I've ever had. The food in general was amazing.
I only gave three stars for value as we dined on Valentine's Day and they had $65 prix fixe meals that night. Otherwise, four stars. Have eaten here for business lunches and nights out with my wife. Always good; always special. More...
There were a few screw-ups with our food and drink BUT the manager gracefully recovered. Good job that!
Server was bit rude
My wife and I had a great time on Valentine's day! The restaurant called to confirm our Opentable reservation, which was nice! Our table was ready when we arrived, even though the restaurant was otherwise packed, which made us feel special. We even were given a larger private booth, which was better than most people at smaller, more public tables. Our waiter Ryan was very attentive, offered suggestions, and made accommodations for us as needed. We ordered from the Valentine's Day 3 course menu, which was fantastic! My wife had the beet salad and black cod with shrimp risotto. I had the crab cakes and bone-in rib eye. We each then had a dessert sampler that was offered. We both absolutely loved our meals! It was a great experience for both of us, and we will definitely be coming back again soon! More...
Your chopped salad is unparalleled!!
This is one of my favorite 'nice' restaurants to go to. The food and service is wonderful. The setting is somewhere between eco upscale and romantic. It's usually a quiet, private feeling place. Good for conversations.
Good range of gourmet options and safe options, which is great for my husband who normally just wants a really good burger. They have some fantastic wines on hand, including Silver Oak, and some nice cocktails. .
Price-wise, entrees range from about $18-$50. So depending on what you get, this place can fit a lot of budgets. More...
Great food! Great Service!
Visited Andrei's for the first time for a business dinner of 12 people. The group was very impressed with our experience. The food was truly delicious and well-prepared. Our service was fine, not overly attentive, but no complaints. Would highly recommend Andrei's for a nice evening, with delicious food, great for a business meal or a just a nice evening out. More...
Food and service were excellent. My wife had a Mediterranean Plate with cheese, hummus, grape leaves, etc. I had scallops. The food was excellent. We went for lunch and enjoyed the atmosphere (quiet) and the food. Great place. Will go back again. More...
When you are from Hawaii, much is heard about the In-N-Out burger restaurant. We made it a point to check this place out on a day with many errands. First of all, getting to the restaurant was slow because the drive through line was blocking the entrance. Once we got there, like good visitors, we had one member save a table while others went to order. The Double-Double was one BIG sandwich. My daughter, ever cognizant of calories ordered her burger, protein style with no bun...her burger was in a lettuce wrap. We are also introduced to the animal style fries with onions and delicious topping. While the food was good, some of my friends who recommended this place exaggerated the quality of the burger. It was a good California Cultural experience. More...
Rob is my favorite waiter in all the land! He makes our dining experience special in every way.
Very good meal and service. Mostly we had salads for lunch but we were happy with all of them. Highly recommend the chopped salad. Water was kept full and food delivery was appropriate timing for lunch. The only downside is the valet parking. It was raining and when you valet you have to go around the corner and it is not covered. Not usually a big deal in SoCal, but that day it was very inconvenient. When I questioned it the valet driver said, "well I am getting wet too." More...
Food took 35-40 minutes for a salad and roasted chicken to make it to table at lunch...too long.
What a find! We can't believe we haven't eaten here before. The food was excellent..service top notch and we can't wait to go back!
Great food and service as usual. We will be back for sure.
We visited Andrei's for the first time on New Year's Eve for an early dinner. The 4-course prefix menu items were excellent! Three of us ordered the 8-oz. filet mignon, and we all loved how tender and tasty it was (one of the best I have ever eaten). My husband ordered the scallops, and he was pleasantly satisfied, as well. The appetizers were all good, and the chocolate dessert was decadent. Two in our party also ordered the wine pairings, and they enjoyed the selections. In the future, though, the restaurant needs to stay on top of bringing the new wine at the start of each course. The wine arrived late for the appetizer and dessert rounds. I do not think this was our server's fault as other people brought out those wines. There was live entertainment that added to the lovely and festive atmosphere. Our server was genial, and she did a wonderful job. All in all, we had a happy dining experience and will definitely go again. More...
We dined on New Year's Eve. We've eaten at Andrei's many times, including previous NYEs. Alas, the quality of the food we were served was not up to the standards we have come to expect from this restaurant. The combo starter was fine, a number of small bits, all of which were well done. My second course--a white asparagus veloute--did not taste of asparagus and was heavily salted. The main course was the braised antelope shank (which I've actually had at Andrei's before and when I had it before, the meat was succulent and soft). The shank meat I was served was totally dried out (as though it had been long braised past its prime), the wine sauce had been reduced so much that it has overly salty, and the roasted brussel sprouts (which were served with) were extremely bitter. [Par boilding the sprouts before roasting them would have prevented this outcome.] My wife had better dishes--a seafood platter for a second and a filet for her main. Her filet was properly cooked. Service was, as always, excellent. Just disappointed in the food at this otherwise reliable establishment. More...
The food was delicious as always and the service was fantastic! Can't wait to go again.
Once again Andrei's hits the mark! Another wonderful lunch at one of my favorite places in OC. I had the red snapper with shrimp special and it was fantastic. Loved every bite.
Great spot for a business dinner with a good menu and good service. The portobello mushroom fries are a must have!
We had a wonderful lunch. Food was great as was the service and the ambiance. A little noisy as a few folks just talk too loud wherever they are.........didn't their Mom or Dad ever say to them, "shhh inside voice please". Lol. Love Andrei's Thanks! More...
Happy hour wine flight an excellent value. Gives a good opportunity to compare
This is my go-to place for special lunch with special friends and family. As always, food was fabulous. My friend and I split a burger - I know, with all the other divine delicacies available, why did we do this? It was a cold day, we were cold at our table and thought that would warm us up. Whitefish soup was great, too. We were moved to a much warmer and quieter booth right after the soup course. Burger was excellent and the fries were just scrumptious. Presentation is everything. We are going back again and again. More...
Once again an outstanding lunch at my favorite spot. The food is amazing and Chef Yves mixes up the menu enough to keep it interesting. The location is perfect and it is so easy to get in and out of with their valet service. More...
The atmosphere is nice because the tables are not one on top of another and the service was great. We always enjoy the portobello fries. The mediterranean wrap I had was very good except that the hummus was too sweet. More...
New menu available a week ago they said. Pretty good!!!
This place was wonderful. Our waitress was such a sweetheart! Great place for lunch or drinks.
My go-to for business meetings. Atmosphere is excellent and service is professional and friendly.
We had an excellent time enjoying happy hour on the patio
Outstanding experience at Andree's. Great service...wonderful food...quiet atmosphere atlunch.
I always enjoy Andrei's !! There is always something new to try
Always a wonderful experience at Andrei's. The attention of the wait staff, the quality of the food, the creativity of the Chef and the environment make it a hit. It is also one of the few restaurants in the area where you can meet and not have to shout over the crowd. More...
My friend and I have lunch each Thursday we are in town. We have eaten at Andrei's a number of times and have enjoyed it each time. I have waited too long to write this review and I do not remember what either of us ordered. The waiter was efficient but a little brusque. Nothing really bad. I think he had a large number of tables to cover. Complimentary valet parking at lunch is appreciated. More...
This is always a solid spot for a nice meal. Service is great, the food is wonderful. Top pick for a business lunch.
Our food fabulous, service attentive from our server Chen.
Andrei's in Irvine is a real gem of a restaurant. The food and drink are superb! A place to return to over and over again.
Food was excellent! Service was extremely slow.
Rob is AMAZING!!!!! Best service ever!!!
I have dined with you several times now. I live in Ohio but work for a Biotech company not far from you. I have taken both customers and colleagues there and for a convenient, high quality dining experience you are certainly one of my "go to" places when I am in the OC!
Very fun and unique menu - it was hard to decide what to try this time. In our group, the Lamb Burger was a favorite, as well as the Fish Tacos and Chicken Wrap.
Food was very good. Service was attentive.
The upstairs outdoor patio was charming with fire tornado lighting! The food was outstanding; the service was a little slow but they were just rearranging after a private party. I was staying at Hotel Irvine, which BTW was a GREAT Hotel!) and Andrei's was within walking distance. I would definitely visit this restaurant again! More...
The food is very creative and tasty. The service lacks the level of service you would expect for a restaurant at this price point. The room is very large, very bright and cold.With all that being said, I would go back just for the food. More...
Great food and service. We enjoyed the halibut and the short rib. Thx!
Andrei's never disappoints - dining there is always a fabulous experience!!
