Andre's Restaurant opened in 1998 in Newton to rave reviews by owners Andre' and Tracey deWaal. Now 22 years later they are still amazing guests on Beautiful Seneca Lake in Sparta. Due to the Covid 19 outbreak- we have 20 reservable lakeside tented tables and 11 inside tables. Place yourself in the chef's capable hands, relax and enjoy the view. This location has no liquor license so you are welcome to bring your own wine to enjoy with dinner or Enjoy a bottle of ALBA Vineyards Wines. We now offer a great selection from this New Jersey Winery. Andre's also offers Seedlip distilled non alcoholic spirits, Kin Eurphorics or enjoy one of our housemade 0 gravity cocktails (non alcoholic). Our new format as we reopen will be a set menu each night with choices for the main course and an additions menu as well.

Great experience. We went for our anniversary and sat at small table next to the lake. Staff was great. Our waitress was very friendly. Food came at a nice pace and everything was excellent. First tome but definitely not the last.

Unusual times, it was a special occasion just to get out of the house. We were at a wonderful outdoor dining table on the patio, looking out at the lake. We felt so welcome and taken care of. Apologize for that champagne cork that almost blew a hole through the roof of the tent! Great evening. Thank you.

We had an outstanding meal at Andre's, I've wanted to visit this restaurant for a long time and it just never worked. My husband was a little surprised that I picked it as a place to celebrate our anniversary but he loved it! We both enjoyed each course and look forward to our next visit.

The outdoor seating setting was lovely. The service was outstanding. We unfortunately didn’t like the majority of the food but it may have been our selection. We will definitely go back again.

This restaurant never disappoints. The food is outstanding! Dining outside by the lake was beautiful and the service is always top notch.
Where we were sitting we could watch Andre cooking. It was a Sunday so it was pizzas, the smell of sauce and fresh basil permeated the air. My friend and I both enjoyed our meals practically licking the plates clean.
Can’t wait to return!

We ate outdoors - the atmosphere was lovely. The food was ordinary. Panzanella salad good, as was the squash soup. The farfalle was tasteless and the short ribs were gray and a little tough. The shrimp croquettes were also tasteless and doughy. The chocolate mousse cake was ok - not great, but ok. The service was great.

Another wonderful meal at Andre's. Our group of 8 sat at a table right on the lake's edge at a table fit for royalty. Staff, as always, is attentive, lovely and welcoming. Can't say enough how much we love dining here.

As usual, Andres is the best of the best. Even with the limited menu due to the pandemic, everything was excellent. I had the scallops/ and my husband had the pork osso buco. Cream puffs and flourless chocolate cake were the desserts. Truly dining at its best. Wonderful food and perfect lakeside setting.

What a sweet little spot on the tiniest lake. We went for a Sunday evening when the menu is a la carte/casual. The live music was just the right volume level, they let us have our pick of the free tables (we choose right on the water v. under the tent), and everyone was SO kind. We are vegetarian so stuck to the cheese plate + pizzas but it was all delicious. Would go back.

We decided to surprise my dad for his 70th birthday by taking him to Andre's. The COVID-19-sanctioned outdoor dining area is absolutely lovely with the view of the lake. The food and service were impeccable, as always. We had a few special dietary needs in the group and managed to all do an awesome tasting menu with everyone's needs accommodated appropriately. My entree of Thai-seasoned (coconut/lime/lemongrass/ginger) seabass with a few scallops and shrimp tossed in for good measure, was one of the best courses I've ever had at the restaurant.

Despite the fact that COVID-19 has surely made things challenging for Tracey & Andre, they have retained the warm atmosphere and quality menus that keep us coming back. Can't wait to book our next reservation.

Great location next to Lake Seneca for outdoor dining. Tables are well spaced and all servers wear masks, it felt very safe. Our dinner (currently fixed menu with 2 choices of entree) was very enjoyable - including an amuse bouche from the chef and very nicely prepared birthday celebration with the dessert for the birthday girl. It is BYOB and we were not rushed at all, which made the evening even more enjoyable. Will definitely be back!

Dinner with friends. Outdoor dining overlooking the lake and weather was perfect. Service and staff excellent and professional as always. Due to pandemic entrees were limited to two choices which were excellent but some might have have felt it was limited. Food was delicious and everyone left satisfied.
Highly recommend.

Wonderfully done. Food and service was great. We sat at a table right on the grass 10 feet from the water. Beautiful view of the lake while eating. BYOB is a plus as well.

The menu. The website said there were vegetarian dishes were available. However, they failed to mention that one of the two entrees would be converted to vegetarian. ( Hopefully, we assume this is the result covid-19 and more options would be available when normal operations resume.) The available white wines were very limited. No pinot grigio, no sauvignon blanc.

Awesome dinner, it is a gem hidden in the woods of Sparta. Quiet, romantic, great fare. One of our guests has severe food allergies. Andre came out to help him plan his meal around the additional items offered and came out at the end of the meal to check and see how everything was with our dinner. We LOVE it there.

It was our first time there and the experience was great. Only thing it’s a set menu which at that time was very good. But there might be a time that someone doesn’t like one of the choices.. since only 2. Otherwise excellent

Andre always does an outstanding job with his meals. Every course was absolutely phenomenal. Our party of 6 adults could not stop raving. And of course, Tracy is the ultimate host, going out of her way to make sure everything is perfect. We had a very special night!!
