Attention Ando customers:
If you dined with us on New Years Eve, thank you very much!
We had some difficulty with our credit card machine that evening. Our bank, US Bank, had a blackout that night and many
of the transactions had malfunctioned. Certain tables' sales had gone through while others had not, while others had sales and no tip
process. Unfortunately, this has taken a long time. The bank has slowly been processing these transactions.
If you notice an incorrect charge from our restaurant recently and you dined with us on New Years Eve, it is because of this incident.
We will be more than willing to provide documentation and answer any questions you may have about this situation until it is fully resolved within the next 1-2weeks.
We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused.
