Overall I was impressed with the presentation and flavors of the food and a bit disappointed by some of the visual aspects of the restaurant.

We had already eaten dinner, but wanted a nice coffee and dessert before heading home, so we wandered into here. It was about 7:30pm on a Thursday night, and there were lots of empty tables at first, but it filled up after sunset. The hostess was very welcoming even though we weren't dressed up, and we warned her we just... More

I've never written a review before but feel compelled to write it this time. We've been to this restaurant a few years ago and were very impressed, so decided to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary there this past weekend. What a disappointment. No complains about the service or ambiance, but the food was bad. Starting with the bread that was... More

Very challenging to review Andre's. The quality of ingredients is outstanding. The presentation and executive is mixed. The restaurant is small, yet sound levels were surprisingly moderate. decor is nice (see photo). Service was ok, but tended towards an arrogance sometimes found in French restaurants. Some of the wine recommendations were so-so. Attention was limited, as no one returned to... More

Although we frequently visit Carmel, this was our first time at Andre's Bouchee and we are already looking forward to returning soon to this wonderful restaurant! We were seated promptly and although the tables are close together along the wall, we had a nice spot by the window where we could watch folks stroll by. The service was attentive and... More
