My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Andres Bouchee while staying in Carmel for a few days. All dishes (we had 2 small plates and 1 large plate) were fantastic in quality, presentation and taste. Service was fantastic as well. Even got sommelier advice on a pairing for a single glass of wine (!).

After a disappointing dinner experience the day before, we had a wonderful evening at Andre's Bouchee. The service was excellent, the wine selection excellent and fairly priced and the food was delicious and abundant. The only small problem occurred (through no fault of the restaurant) when an infant was placed in a highchair next to our table and immediately began... More

We were just not lucky on this trip in the dining department. After a very disappointing lunch, we thought this would be a winner for dinner. Not a winner, but not a loser either. Lunch was so late we weren't really hungry, so we thought we would order appetizers and then decide if there was room for un plat principal.... More

Great restaurant in this quaint town. I made a reservation days before for our Anniversary dinner, they sat us by the window and the service was great. The food was very rich and paired well with the amazing bottle of Napa Cab. The staff is very knowledgeable and took care of us very well. Definitely going back on our next... More

We had a wonderful experience here on a rainy day. We had the duck special, and the halibut in basil sauce. They were both exquisite in presentation and delicious. What a memorable experience, and a fine place to dine. It reminded us of being in France again. The ambiance was quiet and relaxed, with French music playing in the background.

I had the best swordfish in this restaurant. The Caesar salad was very good as I like anchovies and the full bodied taste of the dressing. We also enjoyed a starter that my wife thought would have been a tartalette, but was more of a small pastry with onion, leeks and spices. The starter was also a pleasant surprise. I... More

If you are interested in a lovely dinner for any occasion or just because it's a Tuesday -- you can hardly do better than Andre's Bouchee. Food is excellent and seasonal. Wine list is second to none.

Coming early for our reservation, we were promptly seated at a quiet table we requested. They serve wine and beer only – wife had a very flavorful chardonnay and I had Lagunitas IPA which was quite satisfying. The menu offered a number of small dishes which were very attractive – foie gras, veal sweetbreads, bone marrow, escargot, duck rillet and... More

Happened upon this quaint French restaurant while enjoying a business/vacation in one of our favorite places to unwind, and we were happily surprised at the level of the dining experience.

One of the best meals I've ever had!! The new chef has changed the menu to not only go with the season but enhance the classic French dishes. The duck confit was taken to a whole new level with the black eyed pea addition which reminded me of cassoulet!! The macaroon dessert was outstanding. This is a go to restaurant... More
