Loved IT! – I went there on a whim--heard about it from 90.9FM and LOVED IT!!! Great food, better than I would've ever made myself. Great atmosphere too--warm and almost sensual. Its a very intimate place, very pleasant smell of dinner cooking. Great people there, too. Very friendly and informative. If you're unsure what you're ordering, they can explain any or every detail you want! I have already recommended it to all my friends and will be going back as soon as I can!

one of my favorite place to go for lunch – One of my favorite places to go for lunch. Good food and good service. Especially nice if you're looking for something unique. I can't think of any place in Cincy that quite like it.
Freshness of Ingredients – I Like Thai cuisine, this is the type of food which is really helped by the freshness of ingredients and making the food when it's ordered. Andy's has a nice patio and you can smoke a hookah, if that's your thing, but the service and food are middle of the road.
enjoy the atmosphere – I have been going to Andy's off and on since 2001. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere and have liked watching the place evolve. Andy and his brother are very nice and once you get to know them it is like you are part of the family. I have been to the Med and the food is as authentic as it gets. Try the Friday night lamb roast.....a whole skewered lamb cooked on the patio. If you ever have something you don't like just speak up and they will make it right or make you something else. I have never had an issue..... even when I ordered the wrong thing and didn't like it. As for the name.....which apparently some people have an issue with I can think of dozens of "Americanized" names for Mediterranean restaurants (and other types) across the country.......why is that an issue?
genuinely enjoy Andys Food – I went a few times in high school and my Dad and Step Mom had their rehearsal dinner there - my step mother's family knows Andy. I definitely love their hummus and pita; so good! I am not a Mediterranean connoisseur, but I definitely genuinely have enjoyed their food over the years (and im not just saying that because my family knows the owners!). The back patio is great and I love how seating is multi-leveled. Know your countries? I believe they still have a daily board by the bar and if you can guess the three countries correctly you get a free appetizer or meal special. Trust me, it is hard! Don't miss the belly dancers, either!
i really liked this place – I really liked this place. It might be the pretty waitresses, it could be the oasis of relaxed rustic decor in this area or it could be may amazing shish tawook (as described as "Winner of the Best Entre Award - Taste of Cincinnati") which was juicy and tender and marinated in a lemony herb baste. The only thing I would add would be yogurt sauce to give the chicken a contrasting bite. Eva was efficient and attentive on a Sat night so I disagree about the earlier review about poor service. We sat upstairs and weren't left alone for long, including company from the bellydancer ;) Come here if you like Mediterranean style food. I've never been to Cincinnati before but with the help of Yelp I felt like a local and also considered Bistro Jean Ro and Pomilio's for dinner on Sat night.
Andys is a step above the rest – Anything that's grilled is really grilled; lots of charred spots, especially on the excellent various shish kebobs (I suggest the Kharouf, which is lamb). There are the staples: hummus, falafel, baklava, and rice with everything. They have a nice stable of beers and wines, including a house wine from Lebanon (the real one, not the one north of the city). Prices are certainly higher than most other Middle Eastern restaurants in the area, but the quality and presentation show why Andy's is a step above the rest. They've become so popular that you can now buy Andy's marinade and dressing bottled. Sadly, the real reason for going has passed on thanks to Smoke Free Ohio. You'll have to find your hookah elsewhere. (And please tell me where that is.)
Love Andys! – I love Andy's falafel and they have great kebabs. On my last visit I had a wrap during lunch and didn't care for it but overall I have typically have a great meal. Frankly we don't have many Lebanese restaurants in Cincinnati, if there is a better one in town I would love to hear about it.
Gooooood! – This is not a Greek restaurant. This is Lebanese. And, let me tell you, Lebanese food is goooooood! Try the labneh with the homemade pita bread! The service was excellent. We had the most FABULOUS time taking our post-dinner birthday celebration to the bar where we were serenaded by the one and only Andy as we sipped delicious martinis and smoked apple hookahs.
