“Open 3 years and consistently Superb!”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

We took finicky out of towners here for dinner. 7 of us. There comment after all the traveling they do was, " this restaurant is in their top 10 for best food ever". (Older couples 60's)
We had the lamb shank, to die for.....
Veal shop....he never lifted his head to speak....
Short ribs....yum
Tenderloin...perfectly sauced.....
Every salad is fresh, beet n endive a favorite.
GET the Mushroom soup!!!
The Profiteroles are soft n crunchy, if that's possible, and apple or fig tart delicious.
They're we're 7 of us so we shared dessert.
Wine menu excellent and the sommelier is knowledgable.
Lauren was our server. Charming and well informed about all the food. A true gem here.
My husband always give compliments to the chef...in this case, chef Jacques!
The owners are always present to help you with anything you may need. The restaurant is cozy, yet vibrant and fun.
They have a room off the main room for private parties, and a bar that will serve you wine or the full menu.
Please give them a try, you will not be disappointed.

“Great service and a tasty meal”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

We enjoyed the meal and the service was great. It was a little tight but good places should be busy at prime time on Friday night.

My wife had the salmon and loved it. I had the pork and scallops and it was ok - not great but pretty good. We both loved the salads. I had the endive and my wife had the beet salad.

At little pricy but consistent with the area.

“warm environment and great food”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

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 vanilla) and the fig torte. The fig torte is a must! We would definitely return on our next visit.

“reliable french stop”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

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 wrong here with the menu, Ive noticed that it is a standard stop with the locals as well.
