The food was delicious. The veal chop I ordered was delicious. However I asked if I could substitute a vegetable for the polenta. I received my meal with the polenta and no broccoli and got mushrooms instead. I ate it because I was starving at this point. My food could of been a bit warmer.

The restaurant is very pretty and not too noisy. I appreciated that because many restaurants on Saturday night can be uncomfortably noisy.

My problem was with the service. Although we had a reservation we had to wait 15 to twenty minutes to be seated. Other parties came in and were seated right away. I found that very annoying.

It took a long time for a server to come over and a long time for the food to come out The server was very pleasant and it wasn’t her fault. We wondered if there is a lack of organization in the kitchen.

The other issue I had with this restaurant was that it was expensive. I knew that before I made the reservation. However, a salad for 18 dollars that we split between the two of us was the size of my palm. That is a rip off .

Our waiter was great. He ran outside in the cold with my husband’s credit card when he left without it. Beet salad was good but had too much vinegar. Bolognese would have been delicious but for too much salt. Going early made it possible to have a quiet table for most of the meal.

The food and ambience was great, the rib eye and the tuscan stake were amazing. The service was terrible. We waited 28 minutes for the server to bring us water despite mutilple requests! An additional 15min to take our order. We received the first plate 60 min after we arrived and had to almost beg for the desert menu, we left the restaurant 2:30h after we arrive, we were waiting on the server almost the entire time

I had reservations at the high top tables in the bar area. We had to wait for stable to come available. The bar area was under staffed. The server did the best she could but was put in an impossible situation. Drinks from the bar took a ridiculously long time. The food was good but certainly not worth the money charged. I have tried this restaurant a few times. I am not impressed. With the number of restaurants to compete with in Burlington, MA, I will take my chances elsewhere.

L'Andana is our favorite restaurant outside Boston for a special occasion. The menu always offers great options that change with availability of fresh ingredients. The quality of the food and excellence of cooking is consistently high. The waitstaff is well trained and helpful. The wine list is terrific. And, while busy, the noise level makes conversation easy. L'Andana is pricey, but the food and experience are exceptional. We'll definitely return!

Maybe would recommend.
The entrance way needs a lot of help. Broken steps which is a hazard waiting for a serious accident. Large potted plants are dead as doornails and should be pulled. Better to see empty pots than all these pathetic bushes.
I think they think your steak should have balsmic vinegar on it. It was not listed on the menu. We do not like balsamic. So instead of sending it back we just scraped it off. Polenta was beyond creamy. It was just a heap in a tiny pot. Not much flavor at all.
Service was very good. Waitresses were very exceptional.

$18 for a kids plain pasta and red sauce with no meat or added anything is obnoxious! I know you are going to say who brings kids to L'andana anyway? I do and there was about 10 other kids there as well as my 2. It's a shame too, we love your restaurant. That was the only disappointment in our evening. If you do go ask for Greg. Very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable! He was awesome. The food we had as adults was tremendous. We will be back just wanted to voice my opinion.

There were six of us, and We were there on dine around Boston week, and it was very busy. Our waiter was patient and knowledgeable. The first course was very good, kale salad, pasta, everyone liked them. They supplied plenty of bread and were attentive. Those who had the steak entree seemed very happy, but the salmon came up short as far as favor, and being dry, and that was having it medium rare. We shared the gnocchi and lobster, which was outstanding, but we did not like how they portioned it out for 6 people. The desserts were okay. They did have a special wine choice that was reasonably priced. We have been going there for the last 5-6 years and have seen a real decline in the food.

I have had many wonderful evenings at L'Andana, however Friday night it was not. This was related to our waiter. He seemed very overwhelmed and not friendly or attentive. Food was wonderful as always. The final straw was when we were served dessert, our waiter never returned to ask if we wanted coffee or after dinner drink. Stood at table while I was taking my credit card out of my wallet. Very unlike L'Andana. It was restaurant week, but this is no excuse. If I had never been to this restaurant before I would not return. Not the way you expect to be treated in a high end restaurant. The other couple we were with have sent an email to the restaurant directly.

Food is good and service is alright considered it is a full night. The tables are very close to each other, even though I specifically request for a table more isolated since it was my husband's birthday. I got seat in between two tables and can hear all the conversations from both. I ordered oyster but they don't come with oyster folk, which is what I would normally expect from a restaurant with this price range. Also didn't get a spoon for my pasta dish but a steak knife instead - kind of weird. But they did surprise us with a dessert for my husband which is very nice of them! Overall nice experience, just too loud and too close to other tables.

Highly attentive to details and great execution of a well presented meal. Drinks are well mixed and served with proper garnish and glassware. The room layout is a bit uninviting if you are in the middle as you get a lot of traffic. Food was very tasty however somewhat salty or I would have it 5 stars.

Lanadana has always had consistently great food. The one area they have always lacked is with service. For the prices they charge you should not have to wait 5-10 minutes for your server to initially greet you after you seat. Then usually throughout the meal there are long abscesses of your server. Another common issue is waiting 10-15 minutes to be seated after reaervation time. This will not stop me from going to Landana but I wish they would address these issues.

Went for restaurant week, and got a reasonable sampling of their fare. The Pappardelle with wild boar ragu was very good, as was the salmon with wheat berry risotto. The highlight was the manager/sommelier William, who recommended a Rhône that matched our tases perfectly.

One of our party was celebrating their 2nd year being leukemia free. After years of treatments (that were not very successful) including a bone marrow transplant, total isolation from the general public over a long recovery process, we view L'Andana's the place to celebrate the victor. The entrees, service and decor at L'Andana's was the best location to relax, talk and enjoy our fortunate outcome.

Overall an enjoyable evening the ambiance and service were excellent. The food was very good but the white asparagus soup lacked flavored need some seasoning asked or my salmon a medium rare and go medium well but was still delicious. Parking situation poor they reserve so many spaces for valet that you are basically forced to wait in line to park. But overall a very nice evening we will go back.

We went as part of dine out Boston and took advantage of that menu. I had the baby kale salad, chicken, and pannacotta. My husband had pappardelle, steak, and chocolate dessert. They only have canned or bottled beer, but do have some craft selections.
