On our last night in California, we decided to try Andre's. We didn't have reservations, but we were able to walk right in and sit at the bar. The service was wonderful! I had the most perfect piece of halibut. My husband had sol that was cooked to perfection! Wonderful evening!

Took my husband for his birthday dinner last night. He ordered the filet de boeuf while I ordered the braised lamb shank. Both were excellent. We will return.

We had a delightful, late lunch on a foggy Sunday afternoon in this quaint, French restaurant. A small entry belied the fairly large interior located behind the bar across the entry area. The lunch menu featured a nice selection of salads and a well represented Wines by the Glass menu. I had the duck salad and my wife had the... More

The food and service were both excellent - couldn't have asked for more. But the place was dark and stodgy. With an interior redo, it could be a perfect 10.

Such a wonderful dinner and wine pairing. The owner even came to our table to make us feel welcome and make suggestions. We couldn't have been happier.

We saved a visit to Andre's for our anniversary dinner while staying in Carmel in March. This was our second visit to Andre's. Our first visit in 2010 had been so fabulous that we were eagerly anticipating something very special. Unfortunately, we were not so lucky with our second visit. Even though the restaurant was fairly empty on a Sunday... More

My wife and I chose Andre's Bouchee based upon tripadvisor review's and I'm glad we did. Let me first say that our server Jose was great. We started off with a salad with warm goat cheese and it was very good. My wife had the sea scallops and I had the Filet Mignon. Both were cooked to perfection. We come... More

Four of us ate here - had a wonderful meal. Everyone agreed it was one of the best they'd had for some time, a real highlight was the risotto which was absolutely fabulous. The service was very good, our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful about the wine, and the open kitchen is always good to see - no secrets!... More

I looked at several places for a special group of friends while we were visiting Carmel from California. I actually had picked a place ranked higher on TripAdvisor but changed my plans once I checked out this place. It is a small restaurant but had a lush atmosphere inside. That evening we arrived at the restaurant early. The place was... More
