    Food was good but we waited for over 2 hours to get our main course. We had 5 pm reservation and were the 2 nd table for the evening so the kitchen was not backed up. It is hard to know why it took so long.

    Andres is closing on April 19th. It was the first chef driven restaurant in Sussex County and a pioneer for this area. We are sorry to see it go. However, Chef Andre and his wife Tracey will be re-branding and creating a new more casual eatery named 'dres at the same location opening soon. This is a very wise direction for the current location. There is a rumor that the more upscale menu of the current Andres will be available once again in a new and lovely lakeside venue in the county. We look forward to this new venture and wish Andre and Tracey great luck and fortune.

    We have attended 2 of Andre's classes, but this was our first time dining there. It was GREAT. The Scallops and Salmon entrees were wonderful. Service was excellent, our Server knew we were going to the Theater and kept everything on an even pace for a relaxed meal...and we made it the Theater with time to spare. I enjoyed the wine flight; and being able to taste 3 different wines. All in all, it was a fabulous Anniversary Dinner..... Thanks ! We can't wait to visit again after your "Re-Opening in May".

    Dined on 4/3/2014
    Our high expectations were fullfilled. We always know that whatever we choose from the menu will be perfectly prepared as well as a visual delight. The scallops with curry and lime were delicious, cooked to perfection. Our friend doesn't care for curry, so she was given the option of ordering the scallops with another sauce. (By the way, the curry was very mild). It was a very enjoyable and satisfying evening. I would highly recommend Andre's to anyone who truly appreciates fine food.

    A block away from the theater. Entrees come as 5 course meals or À la carte. Everything was excellent. The Foi Gras was pan seared perfectly. I had the breast of duck and my wife had the catch of the day poached in duck fat . Best place on Newton.

    My wife and I eat out often and we happen to be in the Newton area that evening and found Andreas. We were very happy and pleased with both the dinner and the service. I felt the food was of New York Quality but so were the prices. My only regret was that the wine list was not extensive nor matched the quality of it's food. I would however go back again and also recommend it to people looking for an upscale meal when in the Newton area.

    Enjoyed the five course meal presented across two hours. Each course was delicious. My specialty cocktail was unique and a bourbon lovers dream. The tab was hefty $200 for the two of us but worth the splurge. Sometimes you just gotta have foie gras and not having to leave town still amazes me. This is our go to spot when we want to indulge.

    Been there a few times over the years, but not in quite a while. the food had always been spectacular, but was just ok this time. The service was very lacking. When the complimentary appetizer arrived to our party of 4 the 2 plates each with 2 tiny toasts with cream cheese and beets were placed only in front of one man and one woman, making us think there were additional plates coming to the others in the party. After a few minutes, someone came over and said the 2 plates were for the table and placed them in the center. Finally at the end of the meal, she just plopped the bill on the table like we were in a diner, without a single word. Sorry to have to write this, but we were so disappointed in a place we had always loved going to :(

    Meal was fantastic - "four star" quality food. Five course menu was was perfection. Patronize this restaurant, not just because it's great, but because we want it to stay here forever. If you're tired of paying too much for mediocre food elsewhere, eat out less and spend your money at Andres. You will not be disappointed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    My husband & I were staying at a nearby B&B; the owner recommended Andres for our Valentines Anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere is cozy, hip & romantic. The crowd spanned from young to senior couples. Cloth tablecloths, fresh flowers and candles. We both had the butternut squash-apple soup - yummy on a cold, snowy night. Salad crisp w/mustard- vinaigrette house dressing. I had a steak in a scrumptious wine sauce, my husband had grouper with a seafood puree over , which he enjoyed very much. A pear crisp (wished it was warmed) & coffee cheese cake were both good. Service was top notch - always at the ready, but not intrusive; friendly & helpful too. Highly recommend for a special night out.

    Andre's has been a gem for a long time. Andre deWaal's creations never fail to please this palate or those of any I have brought. I wish my pockets were deep enough to come all the time but it is reasonable enough that I can come frequently. The wait staff is very much improved from their early days and Tracy deWaal's presence in the front of the house is always so perfect. She is there when you need or want her but otherwise content that her guests are all enjoying themselves. I used to criticize Andre's wine selection as not being up to the level of his food but I noted on this visit how much improved it is and I feel confident that anyone will find wines that will match the palate, pocketbook and meal. Bon Apettit!

    Went to andres for my grandmothers 80th bday. The food quality and the way Andre mixes the flavors r unmatched. The wine selection is huge and if ur not sure or new to wine the menu lists the recommended for each course. I spoke with Andre over the phone and he made a beautiful delicious bday cake lemon. I'm not a fan of sweets and I ate my entire large piece no problem. Thanks again Andre will all be back soon. There's so much more to be said so get to andres and be amazed.

    It is a great place to sit and be patiently severed, it is not the place to "run in for a quick bit"... A great place to go with friends and relax and enjoy a nice evening, with great food from start to finish. Plan on at least 2 hours for the 5 course meal. A great place to go before a show at the theater. We would 100% recommend and also dine there again. There's no rush at Andres!!

    I love the food made from fresh, local ingredients. The servers are well-trained and attentive. And the atmosphere is upscale and romantic, but not stuffy. Andre does a great job of pairing the food and wine. My favorite dish is the sauteed scallops, which are soft and sweet and lightly browned, never rubbery. They are among the best I've ever had. I love the cheese platter, which is offered as an alternative to dessert. Andre's can also accommodate special dietary needs or restrictions. We've been coming here since they opened 15 years ago, and we've always had a great dining experience.

    We have heard about this place for years and just never made the effort to go...four of us went and fairly quiet when we got there (6:30) by the time we left it was pretty busy and louder. Service was very friendly and engaging but not sophisticated and polished. I got the wine flight - it was very reasonably priced and good selections. Ambience is nice but small and a little cramped - they have a nice private room for larger parties. Food was great! Standouts include scallops with fried rice, fish with mashed potatoes, wedge salad, and seafood chowder. Everyone enjoyed it and we will definitely become regulars - worth the trip! Interesting cocktail choices also.

    Newton isn't know as a town with a great restaurant scene. However, there are a few restaurants there worth trying and Andre's is at the top of the list. The menu is creative and seasonal with helpful wine and beer pairing suggestions. The staff is young, friendly and enthusiastic. You don't always have to travel towards NYC to find a great meal when Andre's is in your neighborhood.

    SLOW & BAD service. GREAT location for Newton Theatre Goers. Waited over 10 minutes to be seated, despite a reservation and the fact restaurant was far from full. No one even greeted us or asked us if we wanted a drink – which is hard to believe since the bar is right there when one walks-in. In fact, we waited A VERY LONG time for drinks. When drinks arrived the orders were incorrect. Bread was promised (twice). There were mix-ups on food & wine, no offers for second drinks, and ultimately no time for dessert or coffee (we thought we might miss the show, even though we had allowed two hours for dinner and told them when we arrived that we had tickets). Food was delicious, but SERVICE WAS A JOKE. Choices? Laughing or screaming. We laughed.

    I had first read about Andres a few years ago. I always wanted to try it but never had the chance for one reason or another. Nor did I have the right companion. Now I do and we tried it this past Saturday night. We will be going back! The food was excellent and the people that work there were great. I only gave the food a "very good", not because of what we had (It was all delicious) but I had my heart set on the leg of lamb that is on the website's menu but was not on the menu that evening. A bit of a bummer. But I had the steak instead. Which was tasty but... Overall, a VERY nice experience.

    This was our first time at Andre's. The service was friendly and the atmosphere nice, but we didn't enjoy any of our food. Not the tiny bread, nor the wilted dinner salad, nor our main courses. We just didn't find that it was to our tastes. And it took a very long time for this meal. Perhaps it was an "off" night, but at those prices, we won't be taking another chance.

    We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened and this visit was a return after moving to another state years ago. The restaurant is a s good as ever offering some of the most creative contemporary American cuisine in northern NJ, if not the entire state. The service is efficient and knowledgeable and the training of the staff is evident. The atmosphere is pure European bistro and a feeling of warmth envelopes you right at the entrance. The wine list is compact but evidences care and an eye to matching the cuisine. Do not miss the shredded duck pasta if its on the menu. this is a destination spot if you are in the area.
