Here are 5 of our all-time favorite reviews that capture who we are and what we’re about!
1. “Best Place in Burlington” – Trip Advisor
We were married at L'Andana and go back every year for our anniversary. The food, service and atmosphere are ALWAYS consistently amazing. If you're looking for a truly "foodie" meal and some romance, this is the place for you.
2. “Spectacular Evening” – Open Table
My girlfriend and I recently celebrated our birthdays (which are 2 days apart) at L'Andana. It could not have been better. We had an awesome table in a private cove. I had arranged for some flowers to be delivered which the hostess took care of and they were beautiful. Our server was great and knew when to appear and when to stay away. We had oysters as well as a mussels appetizer which were delicious. The mussels were out of the shell and were in a tasty broth. Hoshang, the manager sent over a complimentary gnocchi dish which was also very flavorful. My date had the swordfish which is always a good choice and was cooked to perfection. My ribeye was juicy and perfect. We ended with an espresso and two delightful desserts, a pecan tart and a lemon dessert. Needless to say, we ate more than usual and everything was perfect. As a matter of full disclosure, I do go to L'Andana often and I know several of the bartenders and the manager. Being in the service industry, I also see the details that the entire staff go through to ensure every guest enjoys themselves.
3. “Smoothly Run, Excellent Restaurant” – Open Table
We have eaten many times now at L'Andana. The dining room is breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful. The menu is innovative, and we have always had excellent food. I want to focus on the staff: on our last visit, we sat in the bar for oysters, and had the opportunity to observe many of the staff, from servers to the manager, interacting. We were struck by the courtesy they showed with each other. No wonder the service is superb. Thank you.
4. “Another Great Meal at L’Andana” – Open Table
My wife and I have been to L'Andana either as a couple or with a larger group 4-5 times but I have never written a review. Since our latest visit was earlier this week, with another couple, I thought it was time for me to share my thoughts. Burlington and the neighboring towns have many fine, upscale restaurants to choose from. Of them all, L'Andana has been the one that I consider outstanding on a consistent basis. On our latest visit, two of us had salad appetizers and an order of calamari was shared. One of the women, who has a fairly narrow focus on foods she will eat, agreed to try the calamari. She (and the rest of us) thought it was great. The salads were sizable, well-presented and fresh. For entrees, with L'Andana's steaks having been outstanding in the past, steaks were chosen by all of us. Three ordered the 8oz filet mignon and the fourth person ordered the 14 oz sirloin. All were cooked as ordered and came very nicely presented with a small baked potato and vegetable. The wine at dinner was also very good and even though the four of us engaged in a long discussion prior, during and after the meal, the waitstaff was courteous and willing to return only when we were ready for them. Following dinner, we each had a dessert or coffee/tea. These items capped off a wonderful meal and fun evening. If it were not for the many fine restaurants operating in the area, we would visit L'Andana even more than we already do, as we are assured of a great meal, professional and courteous service and a great night out! Once again, well done L'Andana!!!
5. “Outstanding in every way!” – Trip Advisor
Put L'Andana on your bucket list for 2016! The food is sublime, the decor and atmosphere lovely and the service is absolutely impeccable. The most well-run and managed restaurant we've visited in a long time. Homemade pastas (butternut squash torellinis, pasta with lobster) were divine. Appetizers (roasted cauliflower, salad, bread) perfectly prepared and the desserts (apple crostada, coconut budino) were absolutely delectable. The staff move effortlessly around the dining room, watching them work is like observing a ballet. Extremely professional servers, very knowledgable about the menu and spot on with recommendations. Don't just save L'Andana for a special night out, go there and treat yourself more often. Loved it in every way!
