“Outstanding food in an intimate dining room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

We had the lobster bisque (delicious), St Jacques Provencale (sea scallops) and beef tenderloin with a truffle and port wine sauce demi glace. The scallops were incredible! Stephen, our server and part owner (?), is extremely knowledgeable. We had an interesting conversation with him about where the restaurant gets its seafood. (A variety of sources because they want the best.) The scallops are flown in fresh from Maine, and are the best we have ever eaten, filled with the flavor of the Atlantic. The filet mignon was incredible - tender, moist, and topped with a sauce that had me savoring each last bite. Dessert was vanilla/rum and espresso creme brulee - what a combination! Our absolute favorite meal on this trip to Carmel

“Nice Venue, Lovely Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

This little French restaurant was one of many fine dining establishments in Carmel. Vying for your attention with specials and French spoken here, this place is clearly a favorite with the locals. The service was excellent and relaxed. One fabulous flavor after another. Bon appetit!

“Great Wine list, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I ate here. We like good food and good wine. This restaurant had both. The Sommelier was top notch, with a wonderful personality. The artichoke and mushroom app was great. The salmon was top notch. Veal special was ok, but not the best veal i have had. Overall, a great foodie place in Carmel.

“Wonderfull evening/pleasant surprise....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

While visiting Carmel we made a birthday dinner reservation at Andre's and were wowed by the warm and friendly service from greeting to departure, the owner/small staff was attentive. The waitress treated us like we were family and the only one's she had to serve. The food was perfectly prepared. We couldn't have asked for a better meal or evening. We will return to Andre's next time we are in Carmel.
