I love Andalu. I always take my friends from out of town here. It's all about the Gruyere fondue. Served with toast and apples and pears...and simply awesome.

The Ahi tacos are delicious, as is the pumpkin barley salad. The wine selection is nice, and they have lots of fancy mixed drinks to choose from. The ginger halibut was a bit too much by itself, but atop some of that toast...divine...

I really liked their crab rangoon...but that seems to have been taken off the menu.

Still, the good service, classy, dim lighting, and overall feel of Andalu is worth it...even without the crab.

I've dined at Andalu for both dinner and for Sunday brunch a handful of times. The food is good but the dinner menu is limited and seems to be unchanged in the 2+ years I've been going there. The brunch menu is excellent but the brunch hostess flat out refused to let our waiter know we wanted to order coffee, then filled all of the water glasses at our table except mine. She was just too hip to lower herself to speak to the waiter, I guess. I sent a letter to the management but 3 weeks later have not received any response. So, that tells me that the management just simply does not care. This place is worth going to for dinner but not on a date because it's very loud. Try the tuna tacos. They're wonderful. Go for brunch if you don't mind being treated like you should consider yourself fortunate to be in the presence of their hipness.

Great overall experience. The food is really good. The service is friendly. The place is cozy but a little too loud for me (I must be getting old!). Get the Short ribs... it's a must try. Did I say that the food is really good?

However, if you are going there, please note that the parking is quite pricey. So if you want to save, carpool over.

The food is quite good, only been there a couple of times but had a decent experience. Service staff is friendly and the experience is all good, its a bit on the loud side so don't expect a quiet dining experience. There are great bars around there for after your meal as well.

I?ve been here before and each time, I have had a very pleasant dining experience. On top of that, did you know this restaurant is teaming up with StreetSmart4kids? It?s actually really cool what they?re doing. I just heard about how SS4K is a nonprofit organization that helps underprivileged teens stay healthy. They are running their ?Dine Out and Donate? campaign here (as well as approx. 70 other restaurants in SF) during October and early November. After having a fabulous dining experience, just fill out the donation form when paying the check (minimum donation $3). This is perfect for people like me, who love to eat out all the time and also like to give back to the community. Check it out for yourself on the StreetSmart4Kids website!

Having been to Andalu a few times now, I have to say I am a big fan. I found the atmosphere cozy and pretty romantic and the service was excellent.

What really stands out is the food. It is a little pricey, but on par with most tapas in the city. The quality, however, I felt was very high.

My boyfriend and I ordered several dishes following the servers recommendations and were happy with all of them. Including a bottle of good wine, our total was right around $100 and we were happy and full.

Although it's not a place I can afford to go to on a regular basis, it is definitely a city stand out.

We went here on a Thursday night around 9:30pm, which is half price Sangria night, FYI. Our waiter, Morty, chose some great options! We recommend the Fondue!!! The olives are mild but delicious. We also had the Sea Bass, Short Ribs and Sliders, all which were delicious, but the Sea Bass was our favorite. All the portions were great size and we were even too stuffed for dessert. I could see how it would be crowed and too noisy on the weekends, but the food definitely makes this place worth visiting. We will be back. PS? watch out for the fondue gas.

This is a very good restaurant. It is a place to go with people having fun all around you. Tapas are delicious and although not cheap. well worth the money. And, did I mention the wine? Good wine! I recommend giving this restaurant a try!

Andalu ain't cheap but the tapas are unique and to die for--I'd suggest bringing a big group and sharing several plates. The sangria is awesome too! Good drink menu and bar.

Picked this place for solo Saturday brunch based on the "free doughnut holes" enticement. The holes were excellent -- tasty and hot -- but two's all you get. If you want more than two, you pay. (Groan.) My ham/chorizo/egg scramble was delicious, and so were the polenta fries that came with it. Portion size was decent. Coffee was above average but it's all French Press, and you pay by the cup. Note to management: Brunch without free refills on coffee is annoying. Got a bloody mary. Lots of stuff in there, including a whole celery stalk, a pickled green bean, several cocktail onions, and a lemon wedge. Showy but tasty. Service was friendly. The place was 85% empty when I arrived at 1:00, and the floor smelled very heavily of cleaning fluid. I'll probably go back. But I think I'll try a few other places first, as I'm pretty new to SF and wasn't bowled over.

Pros: tasty brunch fare

Cons: no coffee refills, "free" doughnut holes limited to 2.

We actually ended up ordering two of them. They have a wonderful wine menu. The service is nice, and the place is informal, and fun.
Tonight was going to be a real feast for the palate with two main dishes. Both dishes require a basic sauce made from tomatoes and eggplants, flavoured with local staples such as onion, garlic, olives, capers, mint, basil and oregano. Aurelio refers to these herbs as the "profumi di Sicilia" - the fragrances or aromas of Sicily. The fish, cut in rectangular pieces, is cooked for only 10 minutes on the stove inside the sauce to make sure it?s nice and tender. To round out the taste a bit of red wine is added to the sauce at the end.

We ate here for a birthday party... bad choice! The service obviously knew they were getting the "18% gratuity for parties of 6 or more". We waited for drinks, watching other tables get served second rounds and food before we were served water.
The food arrived cold, when expected hot, warm when expected cold... forget about complaining. No server to be seen! The bathroom was so poorly maintained, I seriously have seen better restroom conditions in gas stations on the way to Tahoe, Friday night at 11:00pm. Needless to say, filthy toilet... no TP... no paper towels. This room is only a few feet away from the tables. I sent a complaint letter to the manager. No response. I really don't understand how this place remains in business... it must be those darn "mac & cheese sticks" which are truely devine... if they arrive warm!

Our foursome thoroughly enjoyed each of the eight dishes we chose - veggie, meat and fish - and saw many others on the menu that sounded equally appetizing. We agreed we'd need a return trip! With cocktails, wine and dessert our bill for the four of us was $160. The space has character and appeal, the waitstaff was knowledgeable and friendly, and the service was excellent. We passed three comfortable hours there, very enjoyably! Valet parking made us happy, too!

I recently had dinner with a girlfriend of mine there. The place was super accommodating. We were able to make last minute reservations on a Friday night!! We called to say we were running late and they said they would still seat us. When we arrived, the servers were very friendly and brought us our food in a really timely manner. The fondue was amazing, the short ribs were delicious, and the banana lumpia ice cream desert was amazing. We will definately be going back. It's so rare to receive such superb service these days.

My girlfriends and I were seriously looking forward to dining at Andalu based on all of the excellent reviews that we read about the place, the food, the service...and yet nothing stood up to the hype. First off, the restaurant was freezing cold, which never makes for a comfortable dining experience. Then the service was terrible, w ith our waitress constantly either chatting with the rest of the staff over by the bar or walking right past us. We had to beg other servers to bring us some water at one point. Perhaps all of this could have been overlooked had the food been decent -- but it wasn't. Our tapas were some of the saltiest things I have ever eaten. My mouth was actually puckered afterwards. The mahi mahi was dripping in oil, the shrimp had no flavor, and the crab cake was less crab, more fried breading. The much-hyped sangria was even sub-par, being that it was more juice than anything. We ordered desserts, hoping that our meal could be redeemed. The sorbets went over well, and the espresso-chocolate mousse wasn't too bad. The donut holes were just okay, though, even though several reviews raved about them. To top the experience off, the valet couldn't find our car for 20 minutes. We will NOT be returning.

Andalu has consistently fantastic food and service. We have been there many times, both with small parties and large and have always found the food to be amazingly tasty and well prepared. The wait staff is superb and is excellent with recommendations. We have found Andalu to be an ideal location for large groups who are interested in a unique San Francisco dining experience at a reasonable price. While the wine list provides more than enough options, for a cost conscious group, the Sangria provides an excellent alternative. Our last visit there was with a large group of both San Francisco residents and out of town guests. Everyone left satisfied with both food and Sangria for (shockingly) around $20 a head. (We have always found it to be closer to $50 a head if you visit in a smaller group and prefer to stick to wine.) All from the last group visit are still quick to comment on the great food and atmosphere there whenever the experience comes up. Be sure not to miss the Cambazola Cheese Fondue with Fuji Apples and Asian Pears, though the Dungeness Crab Rangoon with Sweet and Sour Sauce and the Grilled Flatiron Steak with Chimmichurri and Fries are also worth the visit.

I was very disappointed with this restaurant. A party of 13 joined me for me for my birthday dinner after I selected the restaurant based off of the reviews on city search. The food was not bad, but for the most part the dishes came out cold. I made reservations in advance and confirmed. When my party arrived, the table was not ready so they suggested we wait at a bar down the street since the place was crowded. Instead we waited in front of the restaurant in the cold. We had a long wait for our table. Once we were seated instead of going downstairs to get an additional chair, they pulled a fold out chair from the back for one of my guests. They should also consider scrapping the gum from underneath the tables. They were understaffed. The waiter complained about our ordering and she also brushed the crumbs onto our laps when clearing off the table. I would not recommend this place.

I must comment on the person who posted before me...I know they were understaffed because of a death and YEAH that shook up the staff...I have been there and the service has always been good. As long as u don't bust out your snobby attitude at any restaurant staff anywhere you will always be taken care of even if they do make a mistake. I know the place is in transition for a new owner so that could be partly why things seem unorganized. Also sometimes what happens when you make a reservation and have to wait for your table that is because there is still a party sitting there and they have not either paid yet or finished eating-it may be due to that party straggling in or being late so it backs everyone elses reservations up. That is probably why you had to wait so long for your table.

Party of 5 not so welcomed at this place. It was a Saturday night and we knew we did not have reservations, but we took a chance. The host was very rude about letting us know there was another party of 5 coming that has a reservation and they were his priority. After consideration ---once we pointed out that the dinner room and bar area were mostly empty -- he agreed to seat us as long as were freed up our table in an hour. We were fine with the time limit, but I think every single staff person in the place knew we were to be rushed. Food was just thrown on the table. Staff members would point and tell others we were to be out by 8:30pm. We felt like there was an egg timer sitting right on our table. And all that time of not being able to enjoy the fair food that was tossed on our table, the dinner room and bar area remained mostly empty. The party of 5 that had a reservation did not even show up.

Too many nicer places in the city to even both with this one.

White wine sangria- what a great way to start the evening. This restaurant is great for birthday dinners and for dates. The restaurant staff does their very best to accomodate for large groups on the second level of the restaurant. The menu offers a great selection of tapas. My recommendations: Ahi Tartar Tacos with Chili and Lime, Mango Salsa, Cheese Plate - Taleggio with Grilled Walnut Bread and Quince Paste, Duck Confit and Black Mission Fig Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette. With a glass of sangria- all of these plates are delicious!

This place was awesome! I went with quite a large party so we got to pretty much order everything on the menu. There wasn't one thing that I did not enjoy. I had a few favorites. I LOVED the Fried Macaroni and Cheese and the Ahi Tuna Tacos. I've never seen macaroni and cheese served that way. It reminded me of a mozarella stick, but with mac and cheese in the inside. They also serve 2 types of Sangria. I've never seen anyone else serve white wine sangria, but one sip and I was hooked! It was a perfect blend of fruit, fruits juices and wine! I highly recommed Andalu and I suggest you try everything on the menu.

I just went to this restaurant for a birthday party and it was absolutely great. They had a variety of finger foods that everyone was happy to share; there really was something for every one of us. The donut holes for dessert, and fried mac 'n cheese as an appetizer are a must. Definitely recommended.

I want to really love this place. It's cute. It's hip. But oh boy, does the menu really dissapoint. For one, it never changes. I don't think I've ever been offered specials. The small plates sound good on paper, but end up falling short because of poor execution in the kitchen. Hot dishes get served lukewarm. Allegedly spicy food is bland. You end up paying too much for what you get. This place needs a major overhaul - fast.

For the most part, the dishes my friend and I ordered were good. The standout were the Coca-Cola Spareribs. The Ahi-tuna Tacos came in second. These were the only two that I felt were worth the money. The bread with cheese and fruit compote were passing but nothing special. The flank steak was bland. I felt the food was a bit overpriced given the quality. The worst part is the wait staff. You are pretty much ignored the entire time you're there. You have to sit like a hawk, wait to catch a glimpse of your waiter/waitress, and then wave frantically in order to receive any service, including water.

For the most part, the dishes my friend and I ordered were good. The standout were the Coca-Cola Spareribs. The Ahi-tuna Tacos came in second.

Cons: inattentive service, flavorless meat

My Boyfriend and I decided that we'd start trying out new types of cuisines a while back. As part of that, about a month ago we made our first foray in to Tapas at Andalu. Since then, we've been back three times! :-O It's just incredibly delicious.

I highly Recommend making a reservation, as it can get pretty busy. The waitstaff was friendly and when we did have a problem the last time we went, they made it up with a free side and two free deserts.

If you go, You absolutely must try the Macaroni and Cheese. It's the most incredible thing ever. The Coca Cola Ribs are delicious, and I really liked the Ahi-Tuna tacos, but my boyfriend didn't. The Corn on the cob was amazing, the mini sliders, good. :-) And their mashed potatos are to DIE for.

My friend and I ate there on a monday evening and the service was fine unlike what other reviews kept saying. i was surprised to see the place getting busier after 8pm though. classy and atmospheric interior but very mediocre food. the halibut tastes like some chinese fish; of which was so little that for the same price u would've gotten the exact same thing but the ENTIRE fish at a chinese restaurant. the cola ribs marinated for too long, way too tender. the lamb cheeks tasted like i had nothing, the flat steak was too cooked when we asked for medium rare. the food is ok but NOT ok for the price it charges for. much better tapas elsewhere.

My husband and I have eaten here 3 times. The first two times it was just the two of us and we really didn't notice the service too much since we were just glad to be away from the kids for a night. The food was excellent and couldn't wait to go back. We then decided to go again with our kids, 6 and 4 who are very used to going out to eat, and as soon as we walked in we could feel the tension from the staff. We figured that since the food comes out in stages and quickly we could be in and out without a problem but after sitting there for 20 minutes I had to ask for someone to tend to us. Our waitress seemed annoyed with us and she just took our order and never came back until we had to ask for our bill. It then took another 20 minutes just to get the bill at the end of our dinner. We have never had such sour service. That psuedo-intellectual blondie had such a look of disgust when we walked in shaking her head as she walked away. I know some waitstaff hate having to service a table with children but at least try to fake it for a good tip. My husband and I always tip 20-25% when we eat out with our kids because we know there is a little more cleaning up to do and we appreciate quick attention and we also always try to make a reservation before 6:30. I was so angry for the rest of the night. I even had some customers congratulate us for having such well behaved children.

I have to add though, our children loved the food, there was nothing they didn't like, especially the donut holes and hot chocolate! A must have. Such a shame we won't be going back.

When you're deciding to whom you should give your hundred dollars that you have budgeted for a nice dinner out, I wouldn't give it to Andalu. I can think of a dozen other establishments in the Mission with comparable food I'd rather go to.
I think the word incompetent best describes their staff. First, the bar manager doesn't know how to order enough beer or wine to keep his bar stocked on a Saturday night. It's not like wine goes bad...you'd think they could order enough to keep their numerous wine flights in stock, wouldn't you? You'd think with the interesting wine list that they have, the server would know something about wine, wouldn't you? You'd think that someone would give you a glass of water or take a drink order within 20 minutes, wouldn't you? I thought they were robbing me when I left a 10% tip, which is half what I usually tip.
If you can look past a painfully deficient staff, then you should definitely go to Andalu. The front of the house takes cluelessness to new heights, but the food is amazing. I promised myslef I'd never go back there, after my first disappointing experience, but my significant other loves the white sangria, and I thought the braised lamb cheeks were most tender piece of meat i'd ever eaten. Food=superb. Wine list=imaginative. Service=horrendous.

If you like tapas-style restaurants- this is the place to go! Located in the super chic Mission district, Andalu offers a variety of different tapas plates including Gremolata Fries, delicious mashed potatoes, and the best plate being the Dungeness Crab Rangoon with Sweet and Sour Sauce. We actually ended up ordering two of them. They have a wonderful wine menu. The service is nice, and the place is informal, and fun.

I am always amazed at how wonderful Andalu is. From the service to the food to the sangria to the value, those are why I keep coming back. The food is consistent, and we always leave amazed how little we paid for such quality AND quantity. I just celebrated my 30th with 18 people, our server was beyond fantastic, patient, helpful, etc. The only negative thing I can say is the hostess is not very friendly; over the phone or in person. But, that's not why I have been coming back over the years!

Had a great dinner with some friends at Andalu a few nights ago. Not only were the food and wine fabulous, but the staff are some of the sweetest and most beautiful people in SF! The server was attentive, responsive, and helpful, and the hostess was super cool (and very hot!!). She seated us with no wait even though we didn't have a reservation, and cracked adorable jokes with us all night. I recomend taking advantage of their wine flights which are a great deal. Next time I might show up early just to talk wne with the knowledgable and fun bartender. Also, don't miss out on the ribs or fondue,which are both phenomenal, or the donut holes for dessert. All in all, this place is yummy and fun, and the awesome, sexy staff make it even better!

Some of the food was not what I expected, but I really enjoyed all of it regardless. I enjoyed the atmosphere as well. It was probably louder than I remember, but my company was great, and we could hear each other fine, so it couldn't have been too loud. It definitely lived up to the expectations that I was told, and would definitely go again.

What a great restaurant! I went to Andalu for the first time last week with a good size group of people. The hostess greeted us with a pleasant smile and quickly took us to the upstairs seating which easily accomodated our twelve appetites. The drink choices were very creative and prompty served. After checking off pretty much one or more of everything on the small plates menu, the feasting began. It was like a steady drum beat of unique and delicious flavors. Wave after wave of plates appeared with just enough time between to finish up the previous morsels. The final plate was a marvelous four ounce filet that rang the bell for everyone. When the last plate was cleared, the group slowly rolled out of the restaurant completely satiated. The food was outstanding, the service was prompt and courteous, and the atmosphere was fun. I will be back!

Went to Andalu for my sister's birthday last week. It was 5 of us and we had a rsvp for 8.30PM. We knew that parking is terrible around this area, so we decided to have valet parking. We were greeted by this rude valet guy who called us "Princesses" just because we told him that we wanted to have valet parking. We went inside the restaurant & greeted by this rude hostess. Got there on time but she refused to let us sit at out table coz not everyone in my party is there. But the majority was there. The hostes was explaining the situation with rolling her eyes...what a drama queen!The foods in general was ok;good but not too impressive. What impressive is how small the portion was, although the waiter had explained it to us.Overall, I'd say this restaurant is average. I won't go back.

I headed to dinner on a Friday night with 3 girlfriends and we had a rude interaction with the valet and then an even more rude interaction with the hostess. Not only was she unwelcoming, she was argumentative. To make things worse, she proceded to throw stares at us all night and continually pointed at us while chatting with the wait staff. It was borderline funny that this girl is for real. It put a real damper on a restuarant with good food and atmosphere. The girl needs to go because its not worth interacting with her to eat there.

I went there with my boyfriend last month. We had a hard time finding parking (45min) and finally got to the restaurant 30min late after our reservation. I understand that it was not right to be late, but the hostess specifically pointed out the time of our reservation and the current time and stated rudely that we were 30min late. I can read the time! If she gave our table away b/c we were late, that's fine, but I don't need someone lecturing me when I spent the last 45min trying to look for parking when there was still a vacant table. Anyways, we ordered fondue, steak tartare, cola ribs and something else. The food was not bad, though fondue was not hot enough..more like a dip than fondue. Server was not very attentive but not rude like the hostess. Not spectacular...had better tapas at other places.

Our waiter was really rude. We had a table at 7:30pm. The waiter told us there was a reservation at 9pm. He was telling us not to order some more for the second time.
I invited some friends for the dinner and I was very disappointed with his manner.
Hostess was very helpful and friendly. Food was good. There were a lot of deep fried food.

I was pleasantly surprised after booking this place two weeks ago. I really had no other option as all my other choices for a group dinner were already booked, so Andalu it was. Having last been there two years ago, I was slightly concerned with how the food and service would be. I'm here to say that both are still good! And I'm happy to see that the fish tacos( a must try) are still on the menu. My friend had the lamb( loved it) we had salad, fondue( great) halibut( average, very slim serving of it) and the coco donuts for desert. A couple of glasses of wine and the bill was around $. It was a Wednesday night with just enough customers to make it feel like you were not alone, yet pefect for a couple on a date.

I love tapas, and Andalu provided some great selection with a California twist. I would recommend this place for anybody who loves these small plates of flavorful delicacies. Give it a try but do make a reservation.

People who eat at this restaurant seem to dine according to Latin dining schedule, unlike most of North America, so you will see a very busy dining room even at 10pm.

After reading all the mixed reviews we decided to check this place out. It was wonderful! They have an extensive wine list, but after one taste of the white sangria we stuck with that the rest of the night. It was delicious. All the dishes were great but the fondue and the chicken really stood out. The fried mac & cheese was interesting, but not the taste sensation we were thinking. The donut holes with cocoa were so yummy, especially the cocoa.

The service was great and we will definitely go again.

TOP FAVS: Braised short ribs, Tomato salad, Cheese fondue, Turkey lettuce cups, Crabcakes, Grilled Eggplant, Duck confit, Donuts w/ Hot Choc, Dulce de leche sundae, Banana Ice Crm

OK: Squash, Mac & Cheese more like a chs sandwich, Ahi Tacos (can't really taste the ahi), Polenta Fries (interesting but similar to Chs Mac)

SKIP: Mussels (nothing special), Moroccan Cigars (way too greasy)

Our server recommended 3 dishes/person - we found that to be too much food for a large group of 11 people.

This is a wonderful restaurant with very delicious food and a fun atmoshere and good service. The only problem is that sometimes it's hard to get full for the prices - this is because many of the dishes are really light and not that filling. It's small plates which means you order a bunch of plates and then share them with the entire table. It's fun atmosphere though and the food tastes great - it just ends up being EXPENSIVE so you have to order many plates to get full.

PROS: Great food, Great Service
CONS: Can get expensive

Tapas is either 'in' or 'out,' depending on who you ask. Dining at Andalu only reinforces the fact that it's alive and well...and this gem of a restaurant leads the pack. The food is consistently inventive and mouth-watering. It seems that some folks on here have criticized the service and my experience (and I eat here many times each year) has never been anything short of fantastic. In fact, we find the servers have treated us like family, which is unheard of for typically 'trendy' eateries.
I could not give a higher recommendation to Andalu. If you find yourself in San Francisco, or you're a local who hasn't been here in awhile, I urge you to visit. You'll be glad you did!
