Description: This family-owned business has been bringing Bavaria to Leavenworth for over 25 years. The chef, Anita Hamilton, has been personally overseeing the kitchen since 1991 and is a native of Germany. The made-from-scratch desserts, soups and entrees are reminiscent of traditional Gasthaus fare. The owner, Heidi Forchemer, travels to Germany yearly for new menu ideas. Her son, Max, can be heard playing his button accordion most weekends, along with other local musicians, such as Tom Tilton of the Alpenfolk band. It simply doesn't get more authentic than this!

Having spent two years living in Germany, and eating at a great many guest houses, we think Andrea’s has the most authentic German food in Leavenworth. We go to Leavenworth every January and always tell ourselves we should try someplace else. But then we weaken and end up at Andrea’s. We are never sorry. Eighteen years now, and eighteen great meals.

Great place, especially in October, we go to Oktoberfest most years and have a blast. I go for the Schweinenhaxen but my family loves the restaurant in general. Good food, festive atmosphere and a cultural experience.

We were excited to try this place as I love authentic German food, but we left disappointed and angry.

When we arrived we were seated quickly and proceeded to wait 15 minutes for ANY server to acknowledge our table. It wasn't busy and we could see the servers hanging out in the back.

Finally a server came by, slammed water on the table, spilling water and then dashed. Barely two words. After a long wait for the server, we finally ordered our drinks, appetizers, and food.

When the soft drinks arrived, they had no carbonation. We asked for replacements but they came back exactly the same (no carbonation), but warm!

Then the appetizers arrived and before we took a single bite, the food arrived! What!?! It was bad enough that the appetizer - pretzel- was barely a pretzel, and bland, but the food was terrible. We like German food, but this wasn't that. It was an insult. We made our dissatisfaction known to the server, but she didn't care. Her attitude was dismissive. Great, you comped our app. How about you actually try? We didn't want a full refund, we wanted someone to actually care.

This place is reviewed well, which was why we went there. But I would avoid it. It's not even close to authentic German food that we have eaten. For the price I expected better and the server or management to care.

We left angry and hungry. Thankfully, we went down the street to Sulla Vita for better service, better food, and an all around better experience.

I should also note that I feel compelled to post this after several troubling incidents from other patrons who have trolled myself and this review on other sites.

I cannot express how much people should avoid this restaurant.

Bless you for your loyal support! We hope to open sooner than March, but only time will tell, as we suffered the failure of a new sprinkler system in our building the last week of December. We are working like mad to get our flagship restaurant back up and running and look forward to serving you again!

The live music in this place was nice since we were sitting in the bar so it was more like background music. We were not overly enthused about the food as it was rather pricey and the taste was pretty forgettable. Service was good and everyone was very friendly but would probably dine elsewhere if visiting Leavenworth again.

Thank you for your visit. We do try to offer a variety of dishes to suit most palates at different price points. If you do decide to return, please let us know your personal preferences so we can tailor your meal more towards what you are looking for. We're always glad to help! Or check out our partner businesses, The Gingerbread Factory or Mozart's Steakhouse for the same quality with a different personality in each!
