warm environment and great food

The entire staff was so warm and friendly. Great wine recommendation and the food was very good with nice portions (something my husband usually complains about with French food). We were so full by the time dessert came around, but we couldn't pass up on the duo of creme brulee (espresso and... read more

I've always made a stop here when I visit the peninsula. My preference and habit at Andre's is to plop down at the small bar they have and visit their great wine and appetizer lists. We have always had great fun with their sommelier and wait staff who is quite often a member of the family (restaurant owner). Cant go... More

Having booked the Hogs Breath Inn for dinner before we arrived and forgetting the time of the table we popped our head in to check the time and realised it wasn't going to be for us. We wandered around Carmel and came across this place. a real find. We had a lovely meal with nice wine, they even had a... More

Andre's was an excellent choice for our last night on the pacific coast. Everything was superb-the people, food and wines all hit their mark. A must for lovers of traditional French fare! Carmel parking can be a bit of a problem on the weekends. Helpful hint- the green curb “loading zones” expire after 5pm and are up for grabs to... More

Understanding how meaningful these reviews can be, I want to say that some of the food was great and restaurant overall is worth checking out if you are going to be in Carmel for a few days. Upon arrival we were greated warmly and seated quickly. Our waiter had a command of the menu and we asked to see the... More

My wife and I were in Carmel when she discovered this restaurant. Its menu said steak with foies gras and she knew I loved it. We made a reservation which we later had to change. The restaurant was more than flexible. We were seated upon arrival, and greeted by our waiter and his assistant. We were never rushed. At my... More

Chose this restaurant because they had a bar. It was okay, not great, but I wouldn't say not to go. I think they were super crowded because the hostess was helping and the bartender seemed really busy and kind of frustrated.
