Excellent food. Great service. Definitely going back and try their dinner menu.
Our second visit. We were engaged here back in 2013. We told the wait staff but it did not seem to have an impact. We had no expectations.
Food was delicious! Service was friendly, prompt and caring.
The only difference between this visit and our first was that we noticed on our first visit that just about everyone on the staff took a minute to chat with us and made the experience very personal. On this visit we didn’t experience that which was a bit disappointing.
Otherwise the experience was very nice.
Had steak frites and it was very tasty and a good size steak, but there was a fair bit of gristle and fat. The French fries were the large king with a bit of the skin on - overcooked. Great wine selection!
The experience overall was very pleasant, however, when we received the bill, we were surprised to see a charge for opening an expensive bottle of champagne.
Because of where I work, I am often asked to recommend places to eat, I do say, Andre Bochee often. Next time I recommend you, I will mention the corkage fee.
Also, the black cod that I ordered, had a rather strong taste.
We have been wanting to try Andre's Bouchee Bistro since we moved to Carmel and I'm glad we did. We started with the Chicken Liver mousse and it delivered! Great creaminess and a hint of the chicken liver. The toasted bread was crunchy and buttery, fantastic. Wish we had a touch more mustard. Next we had the Butter Lettuce Salad and the Cream of Wild Mushroom soup. The BLS had this wonderful roquefort vinaigrette and radishes. (it's a breath stinker but worth every bite). The CWMS was so creamy and delicious. You really got a good mushroom flavor from this soup. Last course we had The Local Black Cod Special and the Confit de Canard in a Lentil Bacon stew. I can't comment on the LBCS but the look on my wife's face, and the yum sound, said it was delicious. CdC dish was very rich but that's why you order duck confit!
We're definitely going back to try some of the other dishes!
The food was pretty good and the service was excellent but priced too high for the overall quality of the dinner.
There are several restaurants of better quality in SF and even in the City the prices are lower.
I guess it is the surcharge for "by the sea"
We had a lovely time, and the food was delicious.
We have visited Carmel for years, however this restaurant has only been in town for 2 1/2 years. We liked the Open Table information, so selected it. GREAT CHOICE! Although it was Tuesday in January (That's a local phrase) we dined in style. There was only two other couples in the restaurant, so we had plenty of time with our waitress, LOUREN (?). She was superb! Friendly, smart, attentive and cared about us. Throughout the dinner, we engaged her in conversation. She recommended a local wine to us which we thoroughly enjoyed. She has been at the restaurant for 2 + years and is married to the Executive Chef. A great couple. My wife and I discussed our evening as we drove back to our motel and both agreed is was the highlight of our visit to Carmel. We will tell others about Andre Bouchee's Bistro and will return again, ourselves. Sure hope Louren will be there to greet us!
Wonderful as always
