If you enjoy the more country style (hardy but delicate) French cooking, this is the place. Although a little pricy, the food and service were very good. They have an extensive wine selection from both California and France.

My wife and I visited this restaurant with two other couples. We appreciate that lots of things in Carmel are upscale, but a restaurant can be upscale without being pretentious. I suspect that our experience was colored by the attitude of our waiter. He was clearly trying to steer us to the higher end of the wine list, an approach... More

This was the last stop on our dinner crawl and it was fantastic! We asked the chef to guide us through some of his food along with wine. He was great! It was late and during the week so we really lucked out to get his attention. Normally you need a reservation, so call ahead. Everything we sampled (we were... More

If you like French food, this is your place. The food was great-- very French and very rich. The service was a little off but I confess that I was with a large group of 18 people which was a challenge. My biggest complaint is that the waiter couldn't keep our wine glasses full-- very strange. Overall, however, it was... More

We had dinner at Andre Bouche for the second time in December, and the unprofessional maitre d'hote was just appalling both times. We had a reservation for 8:30PM, and I called to make sure they were honoring the times, as the previous visit we had had to wait for so long. They told me they were running 10-15 minutes late,...

We started with the trio of house made country pate, rabbit terrine and duck rillettes. Some of the very best we've ever had! (I am salivating as I write this!) The seafood risotto was excellent (with the exception of the taste of the three mussels) and perfectly prepared. The sea scallops over a vegetable puree were also very good. The... More

From the lengthy but amazing wine list, to the spectacular French fare, to the phenomenal individual service provided by the wonderful staff, this place a was gem. Beef carpaccio, duck, creme brûlée & escargots were all top notch. However, the mussels!!! Wow! Best I've ever had! I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking great French food at a very... More

My wife and I had a great experience here. After looking over several menus from nearby restaurants, we chose Andre's. We sat at the bar thinking we were just going to have a few appetizers but after looking over the menu and listening to the waiter explain the specials, I opted to order off the menu.

We brought our own wine! What a mistake! The wine list is superb, and we don't think that this restaurant really wants its clientele bringing wines to the table. The duck was a bit too sweet (pear sauce) and the salad overdressed, but the risotto was some of the best in Carmel!

My wife and I went there for dinner and we are very glad we chose this place. The meal was remarkable in all aspects. The service was very gentle and prestative. The russian sommelier really knew how to express himself and recommend a bottle. The entreés were delicious and so were the main courses. We both ordered the same dish,... More
