Almost three decades later, Andre's is still fabulous..
Andre Rochat, Chef/Proprietor of Andre's French Restaurant, has been Las Vegas? marquis chef for decades -- long before all the big names from New York and Beverly Hills arrived on the scene. The original Andre's Restaurant is a 1980s renovated house in the downtown area. Almost three decades later, it is still fabulous.
Andre has now expanded to a namesake restaurant in the Monte Carlo and the eye popping Alize which is on top of The Palms. All are lovely. All are special. But, the Palms can be a bit too noisy for those of us who like their restaurants quiet. As such, we chose the original, which will be closing at the end of the year, but still brings fond memories. Andres at Monte Carlo is currently closed for renovation and will reopen early 2009.
Allyn?s Dover sole, the best she has ever had, was cooked to perfection with its juiciness and sauciness. I had a veal chop, which I normally associate with Italian food. However, this one was A+ and definitely had a French flair to it. The signature two pound lobster thermidor and foie gras also received rave reviews.
The Best Fine Dining in Las Vegas. Andre's French Restaurant is The best fine dining experience one could enjoy. The food, service and atmosphere is absolutely superb. From the time you enter the restaurant, until you leave hours later, you are delighted in selections of fine food and wine. I'm happy to see that after coming to Andre's over the past years that the restaurant earned a Michelin Star.
Best restaurant in vegas!. My wife and I go here frequently. We have eaten at numerous other Strip restaurants (Fleur de Lys, Alex, Tableau, etc) and have only been to those places once. We keep coming back to Andre's. The rabbit and duck are fantastic, as are all of their desserts. Waitstaff is excellent. Sommelier is superb, as is the winelist. Only downside is that they may have a busboy or assistant waiter who is a bit new. First line people are all experienced. One of the big perks of this place is that it is about 30%-40% less than the strip restaurants for essentially the same experience (minus the glitz). We just ate at Alex and dropped $480 for two people with a $110 bottle of wine. One of the appetizers there was better than Andre's, but the entree and desserts were equal and the wine list was way overpriced. Expect at least a 400% markup on wines on the strip.
This famed French eatery is the preferred dining experience for longtime locals and lovers..
Chef Andre Rochat converted this charming '30s-era family home in 1980 and has presented French country cooking in its intimate dining rooms ever since. The restaurant has an extremely loyal local following, which has included many of Vegas' movers and shakers. Appetizers include a caviar sampler and escargot in garlic butter. Main courses range from duck breast wrapped in hazelnut crust with orange sauce to rack of lamb with fragrant thyme jus.
Great Service, Good Food.. Our party of 6 was seated in this intimate, cave-like room; terrific atmosphere if you want privacy, but cramped enough to make it challenging for the servers to get around. The LOBSTER BISQUE, ONION SOUP and ESCARGOT starters were FABULOUS. One of us ordered their signature dover sole entree, which was good but not great, a bit overcooked - certainly not worth the $58 they charge for it. Scallop special was under-seared ho-hum; but striped bass was very tasty. Souffles were wonderful! Wine list very heavily favors reds. Service was very friendly, warm, knowledgable and attentive, though we wondered how the nice-but-clumsy buss boy got a job at such a nice place. All in all, a positive experience and a great non-Strip restaurant choice!
Oui, Andre est magnifique!. Dining at Andre's is a must for us, whenever my wife and I were in Vegas. We have been there so often that it feels like a home to us. Friendly and exceptional services. I think we could be a little biased, since the waitresses and busboys all remember us. The food without saying is magnificent, especially their signature dish - rack of lambs. The only blemish of Andre's is the prices of their entrees. Their evening specials were usually $50+, just a bit too pricey, even for an upscale French restaurant.
Fish. I am a big fish lover and we have eatern at Andres several times. I can honestly say that I look forward to trying their evening fish specialties. One usually does not go to a French restaurant to order Fish but I encourage you to try one of their unique creations.
Awesome. My wife and I could not find one flaw. This is a must for anyone who appreciates the ultimate dining experience. All bases were totally covered.
I took my boyfriend for his birthday. I wanted something special and different. Food from salad, entry, to desert were fabulous. I ordered lamb and my boyfriend ordered salmon. They were both great dishes. I also loved the fact that this restaurant is away from the strip. It's very quiet and personal.
I will definately go back next year for his birthday again.
Very nice service and excellent food!.
The service was superb. They described the food well and were obviously very happy to be there.
The food was excellent. I had a prime rib dish which was really unique and delicious. My date had a halibut dish which she enjoyed tremendously!
