Food was wonderful and the service was excellent. Wine list was acceptable but not outstanding. One dining room was quite nice but the other was a little dark. All servers were knowledgable about the food. We will return.

Food, service, and ambiance
Food, service, and ambiance were all very good. I would like to see at least one kid-friendly entre. Also, it is just a little too expensive to become a regular week-end dine out spot.

This is still the best restaurant in NW NJ, forks down! Imagine doing that for 15 years! Happy Anniversary to Andre & Tracey.

Foodie Spot off the Beaten Path
Charming restaurant in an historic town. Contemporary art in a rustic setting. A very good menu of well-prepared food made for a terrific evening!

What a great place. Don't
What a great place. Don't go if you are in a rush. My wife and I went with another couple and we had their 5 course meal. The food was great, the service was very attentive. Only 1 problem where my wife didn't finish her salmon. They took it to wrap up but forgot to bring it back. We forgot too, so she was disappointed in not having it for the next day.

Park Slope? No. Newton, New Jersey
You wouldn't expect to find such a restaurant like Andre's in the heart of Sussex County, but there it is, nestled inconspicuously between the small businesses on Spring St. And when you walk through the front door, you might imagine you've been transported to a trendy neighborhood somewhere west and across a river because the staff is courteous and professional and not because the corporate handbook has explained how in bullet points, but because they obviously want everyone who walks in to have a great experience. But that's only the first few minutes. For the remainder of your time at Andre's you will have expertly prepared food. The roasted chicken was the most flavorful piece of chicken I've ever had.

My new favorite NJ restaurant
Spectacular restaurant off the beaten path (although on the main street) in Newton, New Jersey. From the decor to the wait staff, from the amuse-bouche to the final forkful of dessert, Andre's is remarkable in every way.
Trained at CIA in Hyde Park, Andre prepares each dish with panache and great care. "You eat with your eyes" my girlfriend is fond of saying, Andre understands this more than most chefs in rural New Jersey restaurants - his presentation is as exceptional as the food itself.
The Lobster-Potato Ravioli appetizer was delicious and cooked to perfection, with a sauce that makes you wish you hadn't already consumed all the bread in the basket. Pork Belly with Kimchee appetizer was perfection on a plate.

Andre's is always superb!
Andre's never fails to provide excellent food, fantastic choices, nice décor and an overall special evening to spend with family and friends for a lovely night out. Mother's day is already a special occasion and having dinner at Andre's makes it even more magical. Each item offered on the menu can certainly be considered a "special". I thoroughly enjoyed the swordfish which was moist, extremely tender and served with a delicate butter sauce and delicious vegetables, they had run out of sticky rice so the waitress asked what I would like to replace it. I asked what are my choices? and her response was Andre can make any starch you would like and I said, how about a pesto pasta? The chef accommodated me with a wonderful penne pasta!

My husband and I always go here when we have something special to celebrate or just because we need a night out. Food is excellent and never disappoints.

NYC caliber hidden in small town NJ
My husband and I happened to be in the area for a party and it was our 10th wedding anniversary. I was somewhat disappointed, because I thought that in a small town we might not be able to find a place to have dinner that had great ambiance, good food and a nice wine list. However, finding Andre's was a nice surprise! The food was delicious and they had nice wine and mixed drinks. We were glad to find a place away from home that was romantic and special. We really enjoyed it, and should we be in the area again, we will definitely go back!

Great find in downtown Newton, NJ
Excellent restaurant, have been there several times now and have not been disappointed. My husband had the swordfish with calamari - it was excellent. I had veal medallions and they were just as good. Service is excellent, all the staff is friendly and caters to you. We will be back again!

Great dinner for wife's birthday
Food was excellent. My wife and I each had 5 course meal. Well worth it. The price was beyond reasonable for the quality and portion sizes of the dishes. Service was good. The restaurant ran out of the entree special by the time we ordered (7:30 Friday night). They also did not have the bottle of wine we ordered so we ended up ordering by the glass. We felt bad for the waitress and tipped her on our final bill as though the bottle was served. LOL. We both worked in fine dining and knew how she felt after losing a sale for something not her fault. Anyway, great meal and a really quaint restaurant. Recommended for sure.

Very good food, local charm
Great place to enjoy high quality food in a rural town setting. Owner/chef is very accessible and makes you feel welcome and appreciated. Comfortable atmosphere. Dining here gives you satisfaction of supporting a local business.

A Wonderful Place
This is a wonderful, intimate spot, great wine and food, excellent service. A gem!
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Group of eight , all mature diners enjoyed variety of selections, scallops, fish, veal, and appetizers and deserts, all excellently prepared and served. The younger ones, 16,18,21always look forward to dining here and regard as a standard to compare other restaurants to, Andres is always among the top. We also enjoy Andres as place for a quiet dinner for two.

Crab and Lobsterfest
Delicious menu and the wine pairings were very refreshing. Great experience, as always

Rock star as always
There Is something about dining in the main room that is better than the side room regarding service. The service tends to be a little bit clunky in the side room but the main room is where it's at for sure As it is a little bit quieter and more streamlined in the service flow. I've been going here for 12 years now and I can assure you this is the best food in New Jersey hands-down Day in and day out. I prefer Wednesday and Thursday nights as opposed to the weekends because it is a quiet little gem best enjoyed on the lower volume nights but I still go on weekends and am never disappointed. The noise level is low on Wednesday and Thursday night and energetic and Friday and Saturday

Off the beaten path in Newton, NJ
We found Andres quite by accident. hHo knew such a gem was hidden in Newton, NJ. Food was outstanding. This is not Your run of the mill drop in kinda place. Foie gras? Penne with duck con fit and black truffle sauce? Desserts made on premises? I found Yesterday's soup an amusing menu choice. All the servers are friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. All priced reasonably for the quality and excellent service.

Andres is extraordinary!
We have been regulars at Andres for the past nine years and I can say that, just like a fine wine, it gets better with each passing year.
Andres continually mixes up the menu with new and exciting dishes. On this occasion, I had a flat-iron steak that was just rare enough to melt in my mouth with a herb sauce that brought out the flavors in the meat and the diced beets and potatoes. Our dinner guests were delighted with their choices which included monk fish, salmon and a NY Strip Steak that was cooked perfectly. The dinner always starts with a gift from the Chef and the blended tomato and beet puree in a large shot glass was over the top in terms of taste and texture. Try the Ten-in-One cocktail that Andres is famous for.

Saturday Night Dinner
We enjoyed a delicious 5 course dinner with another couple on Saturday. All diners were very pleased with their meals. Much attention is paid to detail and the quality of ingredients. The fresh pasta with lobster was outstanding! We travel about an hour to come here and have never been disappointed with this lovely restaurant!

Before the theater
This was a great place to start an evening. The table was great along with the wait staff. Dinner was not rushed and I could have a conversation without yelling. We will be back.

15 years of great Food and Service!
Not too many restaurants continue to perform at a very high level for 15 years. Andre's is an exception. With Tracy [Andre's wife and co-owner], in the front of the house and Andre in the kitchen, you can be assured of delicious, creatively prepared food, served by an efficient and gracious , unpretentious staff, in very pleasant surroundings. Outstanding!

Pre concert/birthday dinner
Our group of 4 had a wonderful experience recently at Andres. We were greeted with a great cocktail at the lovely copper bar, and went on to have an incredible meal from appys including salmon
Nachos, wonderfully prepared main dishes like teriyaki Pompano fish and in house made desserts. The staff were knowledgable and very friendly. A great little gem we all can't wait to go back to!

Best in Northern NJ
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.

Hitting the right notes
Andres hits all the right notes. The food is spot on, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the service couldn't be more accommodating. This is a gem in a small country town. We'll be back!

Andrea's is a gem hidden in Newton, NJ. Outstanding food from the kitchen and a friendly staff made for a wonderful dining experience. I would recommend reservations on the weekend. Definitely worth going out of your way to experience.

Andre's never disappoints...
We love this restaurant and the folks who run it. We have never had a disappointing meal there. Andre's has been our choice for special occasions since they opened 15 years ago. By "special occasions," I mean any day with a 'd' in it.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to andre's with another couple and had a lovely, adult evening. We enloyed the food, wine tasting (you get 3 2 oz servings of red or white wine). It was quiet, service attentive and it was nice of Andre to come and introduce himself .
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will be going back!
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.

A Gem in Newton
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.
