The service was amazing and the food was even better. We got the onion soup, risotto, and rib eye, and highly recommend those dishes. Would go back when we are in Carmel again!

We both had the dover sole special which was not on the menu. We each got a whole fish cooked in a lemon & butter sauce brought to the table and filleted at the table. It was brilliant. For a starter we had the mussels which were also wonderful. Service and food - simply wonderful. The only downside was that... More

We very much appreciated this experience. It all began with the wine steward who gave us great and brave advice on the right wine for the right food. He spent a lot of time asking about our taste and what we were planning to have for our meal. The match was perfect. Along with the wine we had an amazing... More

Everything we have eaten on our three visits were excellent! While we have been to the restaurant twice as a couple, our first choice is with a group so that we can order several appetizers and salads to split and then order our own entree. We have enjoyed all but three of the appetizers/salads, all excellent. My personal entrée favorite,... More

What a find. We all enjoyed our meals. And while one of us was vegan, we went to the restaurant earlier in the day (as we were walking through town) and spoke to someone who arranged with the chef to prepare a special dish to accommodate the needs of the vegan. But the biggest surprise was the wine list. Dimitri,... More

We just finished an amazing dinner at Andre's. I saw the great reviews and some of the local shop clerks recommended it and said Stephan (owner) was very friendly. They were right in that I was dying to try his wagyu foie gras burger (lunch only) but we were always out hiking at lunch. Because we were going to come... More

We were greeted by Stefan who was a very gracious and hospitable host to all dining in the restaurant during our visit. He even brought out the chef to meet and greet us which was a nice treat. The husband's filet was cooked perfectly, presentation was nice, and was a nice size portion. My salmon was moist and beautifully prepared.... More

I dined at Andre's Bouchee as a party of five and found it to be one of the best restaurants in Carmel. I had the beet salad which was very good. After questioning the waiter about fish choices on the menu, he went into the kitchen and came back to offer fresh dover sole. This was an excellent dish and... More

If you enjoy the more country style (hardy but delicate) French cooking, this is the place. Although a little pricy, the food and service were very good. They have an extensive wine selection from both California and France.
