Andre’s Bouchée Bistro and Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
My girlfriend and I came for dinner. We had a fabulous time! Our waiter, Rodrigo, was excellent and was fun to chat with. The food was really great. It was my first time trying escargot and raw oysters. Both were great! However, I think our eyes were bigger than our stomachs because we ordered 3 appetizers, shared a main dish, and shared the French onion soup - which was more than enough. However, I was glad I got the chance to taste a few different items because everything was delicious! The amstophere of the restaurant was very romantic and relaxing - including the bathrooms :)
Don't waste your money. Food was below average and service was none.
Never going back. Steak was lacking sauce and it was gray except for grill marks.
Onion soup was good but the bread under the cheese wasn't even toasted.
The beef cheeks sauce was bland. What a disappointment.
This has been a favorite restaurant for us in the past here in Carmel. Our food was very good, but this year with the new owner my husband was very "put off" with the wine list. Considering we are in the heart of a great wine region the restaurant had practically no bottles under the $100-$200 price level. Really ridiculous. We were just out with our family for a fun evening and this made for a poor start to the meal. My husband said he would never go back. Too bad!
Good food. Wine list had only expensive options, which I appreciate (I love wine). However, there are nice wines out there costing less $500-1000 a bottle. There were literally 2 red bottles under $120 on the list ($89 and $69 which we ordered). The average price was $380 a bottle. I just think for such a "wine focused" restaurant they should offer wines ranging from all price points. Food was a solid but nothing special. Nice servers. Just extremely expensive for what it is (and I live in San Feancisco, I'm used to paying a lot).
This is a great place and needs to be considered a top option for those traveling to Carmel.
The veal/scallop dinner was wonderful, French onion soup to start was fantastic, and finishing with the beignets with chocolate and caramel sauces was wonderful as well.
It was a special occasion. We hadn't been there in quite awhile. Everything had changed since the last time we'd been there. There were only two other tables with people at them so the restaurant seemed sort of cavernous. The menu had surprisingly few choices but the food we did order was good. The service was also good ( as it should have been given the few customers). The biggest drawback was the wine list. Almost no wines under $100 but many over $200 and way up. It was a special occasion so I was happy to spend more than usual for a good bottle of wine. The one that I selected (one 0f the less expensive ones) cost close to $200 and then turned out not to be available so I ended up spending even more for a bottle of wine that was OK but certainly not as good as other wines I've had that were much less expensive.
My wife and I ate at Andre's this past holiday weekend. What is not to love. A Sommelier who has a great depth and breath of knowledge about an excellent wine list. Great great service from all the staff and of course- The reason you go there. The food. Try the bone marrow appetizer. Exquisite. We shared that and the Brie and you could actually have the Brie appetizer for dessert its so good. The moules are great ...not to be missed.
A great night out in Carmel and in the top 2-3 restaurants in the town for sure. Give it a try
This is an excellent restaurant. Food prep was superb and the service was outstanding. That said, it was a Tuesday night so the place was almost empty when we arrived for our 7:00 reservation. We had to ask for a window seat despite the low number of patrons. Downside: although this restaurant is in Carmel, the cost of wines was awfully high on their extensive wine list, and we are used to Carmel prices. Portions on our meals were on the light side.
Andre's Bouchee has quickly become one of our favorite spots in Carmel. The chef is so creative, the food is so tasty, and the presentations are always gorgeous. Everyone on staff is top notch; knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and also casual.
If you want classic French dishes, you'll find those here, but the real hidden gem about Andre's Bouchee is their Monday Night Supper Club. The supper club really shows off the creativity of the chef; he starts with a theme, which can be anything from pig or calf to abalone or artichoke. With that theme he creates a four-course prix fixe meal, from amuse bouche to dessert, with every dish containing the theme ingredient.
My wife and I have tried the supper club several times over the last year and we have never been disappointed, so I highly recommend it. It doesn't happen every Monday...maybe once or twice a month depending on the time of year so sign up for their email list so you'll get advance notice.
