My husband and I went to Andre's when we were in Vegas for the week of Thanksgiving 2004. I read about it in Frommer's mini-Vegas guide. My husband is French, and as the stereotype goes, he is not an easy man to please when it comes to dining out. But Andre's impressed both of us in a grand style. The restaurant itself is in a building that was obviously someone's home at one time. The dining areas are rooms with anywhere from 3-6 tables in them giviing a sense of privacy and individual service. And it is not jsut a sense, the service was indeed impeccable, the waiter well versed in the menu and wine list, and a sommelier on staff, too.
Our food was beyond incredible. I had the filet and it literally melted in my mouth. And not from being tenderized, but because it was a superior cut of beef. Our wine was top-notch, and we were treated to a personal tour of the wine cellar after our meal. I opted for dessert, too, as we were celebrating, and had the chocolate souffle. I have had chocolate souffles before, but this was truly outstanding. If you go to Andre's and you like chocloate, please, please please try the chocolate souffle. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. I was totally satiated before dessert and I still ate every morsel!
The bar area at the entrance is also very comfortable, and I think they are touted as having the largest selection of cognac's in Vegas.
For a romantic evening where you want to treat yourselves to nothing but the best, Andre's Original (3 blocks off Fremont Street downtown) is the only way to go.
The signature entree, rack of lamb was good. However, for $50.00, they were small and I believe missing one chop. A rack is 3 chops and I was presented with a pair. Cute but not satisfying. The escargot was not good. The wine prices are ridiculous. A nice BV Cabernet Sauvignon was $200 - $300 dollars. Elsewhere, a comparable bottle would cost $60-$90 Dollars. The service was good.
