Andre's served a Prix Fixe menu for Thanksgiving, with several choices. The food was delicious, Black Cod with wild mushrooms, soup, salad, apple pie, all well prepared. The people were very nice and welcoming, good atmosphere, a nice selection of wines. I'll definitely go back when in the area.

Andre's Bouchee's Monday Supper Club is well worth the $45/person tariff. It's especially worthwhile with the $25 wine pairing -- the pairings are inventive and wonderful.

My husband and I stopped in here for some pre dinner cocktails. We sat at the bar and had a great time. We only had some wine and cheese but it was excellent. Also the menu and the smell of the food around us almost made us cancel our dinner reservations. The staff was great. I would love to go... More

Stopped by for mussels meuniere and a glass of sancerre before sunset. So good I came back after sunset for duck leg confit and polenta. Great food, expertly prepared. A little expensive but everything in Carmel is. The wine list is incredible for any city, amazing for Carmel.

Andre's Bouchee is a great combination of French bistro and California cuisines. The restaurant has a warm, intimate atmosphere with a small bar and a very good wine list. My wife and I shared appetizers of mussels and an arugula salad. For entrees, my wife had the scallops and risotto and I had their combination of scallops and veal tenderloin.... More

We returned after five years, and had a much better experience than the first time. We had the Foie Gras Supper Club fixed menu with wine pairing. Two of the four courses were very good, two OK, but the wine pairings were inventive and very good.

We absolutely love this French restaurant in Carmel. Delicious French food as well as Romantic dining experience. Incredible waitstaff. Menu changes depending on the season and obtaining fresh ingredients. We celebrated my birthday here and it was a memorable experience. Every food item was divine!

Can't believe we haven't been here before. Everything was perfect - food, wine, service, ambiance. We absolutely loved the steamed mussels (better than what we have had in France), mushroom soup (just the right amount of creaminess), gnocchi, filet mignon and duck. The service was professional and friendly. Great wine list, although a bit pricier than most local restaurants.

We wanted a special meal on our last night in the area. This is a really good restaurant. The service was excellent. We started with the bucket of muscles which were very good. I ordered the very expensive whole sole which is the best I've ever had. It was cooked and seasoned to perfection. We both had the soup (onion... More
