Surprisingly good food, great service and ambience.

On a quiet side street with elegant setting, cordial and efficient service and the food is surprisingly good. Daily specials and fresh entries are very tasty and the atmosphere is relaxing and cozy. Worth return visit for sure.

Service was good but the food was so-so, everything was just a bit too salty or sour. The ambience was nice though. Overall not a bad place to eat at.

Excellent service. Order the foie gras! I was very much looking forward to the salmon wrapped tartar; however, it would have been much better wrapped with lox instead of slightly smoked. Excellent service. Great wine list! The risotto was good, but not memorable.

The elegant atmosphere of this restaurant made us a bit nervous as we entered, dressed casually as we were for our vacation, but the welcome was genuine and enthusiastic. We opted for duck confit and beef filet with foie gras for our main courses. Each was accompanied by an array of remarkably flavorful veggies including a mound of excellent thyme-scented... More

The service at this restaurant was good. The waitress was very helpful with picking out our wine. My lobster bisque however came piping hot, too hot to eat. Once it cooled down it had a bitter taste. The tuna/salmon tartar was tasty although not very appetizing looking...grey. :( The crisp potato chips that came with it were soggy. These are... More

Andre's Bouchee has some of the best food and service we've experienced anywhere in the world. If you would like something special prepared, call ahead and they will do their best to accommodate your desires (I personally love the Dover sole-usually available by request only).

The chef, Jacques, is French, too! So, a French dinner is a total delight and delicious. From your entry and seated by the host, you are in Paris again. First rate, all the way! The servings are generous and very gallic and gorgeous. One can sense the very taste of Paris in every plate. Have a great dinner (or lunch)... More
