I loved everything about this restaurant. It was a so warm and homey. We walked and was immediately greeted warmly. We were sat down and asked if the temperature was comfortable and if the volume of the music was to our liking. They are a BYOB, but do offer wine my the bottle. We were there to celebrate a birthday and they were great about that. The food was absolutely delicious. My husband got the salmon and pretty much licked the plate clean (he didn’t but was really tempted) I got the seared scallops and they were perfect. This place is all around amazing. I would recommend Andre’s to everyone.

Food taste was ok. The duck was a little overdone. The food presentation needed a lot of work across all of the courses. Ambience was nice and the staff was pleasant.

Selected the six-course "Tasting" again. The flavor combinations are unique and delicious. The course selections are never the same and portioned perfectly. Service, as always, was impeccable and the ambiance is welcoming and comfortable.

This was our special occasion high end restaurant. My wife always ordered the “chefs tasting dinner” and I get the price fixed dInner. After we were seated and reviewing the menu our server told us of the specials. As I was reviewing my choices my wife stated she was getting the chefs tasting, the server advised that everyone at the table would have to get the chefs dinner. This took us by surprise and when questioned the server said that’s the policy when they are busy. Needless to say that set the experience for the evening. We both ordered the chefs dinner and we both were somewhat disappointed as it didn’t seem to be as good as past experiences. Then to top things off when the coffee was served we asked for cream as we always do and were informed that they were out of cream. A high end restaurant out of cream on a Saturday evening. We were very disappointed and probably will not be returning anytime soon.

Food and service were good but not exceptional as we had experienced from previous visits. Highlights of dinner were the foie gras, salmon and cheesecake - all very good. The octopus and pork loin special were average.

Tasting menu was a great way to try a variety of items. Loved the salad, soup, and octopus. Surprised that both meat preparations were pork with almost the same vegetables. Desserts were amazing.

Food is fantastic quality as always, but the time in between courses is just a hair too long. 5 courses was almost 3hrs beginning to end. Could be a little faster.

Great meal in a great atmosphere. We always enjoyed Andre's when it was in Newton and I am embarrassed to say it took us too long to visit them at their new location. We hope to now get over there much more regularly! The food is great with some very unique options. The staff is very well trained and very attentive and the atmosphere is really great!

Andre’s is an amazing restaurant off the beaten path that is a must go to. The staff were super friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu. They were perfectly attentive. We ate outside by the lake and the atmosphere does not disappoint. The food was fabulous. Amazingly different dishes to choose from, no one was disappointed in their choices. We left very full and very happy. Do not miss this hidden treasure!!! Thank you Andre and Tracey we will be back soon!!!

This is our second time at Andre’s and this time we brought friends! Once again, we did the chef tasting and it didn’t disappoint! They are very attentive to preferences, allergies etc. Each course was better than the next, and each of us was extremely happy with our course selections. I particularly liked the grilled salmon with creamy potatoes, the creamy onion soup and the quail. They time and space the courses perfectly do the experience is relaxing, and you really get to enjoy each course. The service was excellent, professional and friendly. We were lucky enough to once again eat on the patio and enjoy a beautiful September evening. I definitely recommend Andre’s - especially if you’re celebrating something g because it is a special experience.

Without question my favorite restaurant in New Jersey, or even New York. Andre's creations are uniformly delicious, with delicate pairings of flavors and textures in a feast for both the taste and the eye. The new (well, 4 yrs new) lakeside location is delightful, with both indoor and outdoor seating. Service is excellent yet not overbearing. Do try it, you will be delighted that you did.

Wonderful experience! My wife wanted outdoor dining since it was a beautiful cool summer evening so i found this spot online and decided to try it. The night was terrific from the location with an elegant patio on a small lake right thru the courteous service and delicious food. It was our happiest dining experience in a long time.

We dined at Andre's on the most perfect afternoon, taking advantage of the patio that overlooks the lake. The waitstaff was knowledgable and attentive and allowed for time in between each course, which made the experience all the greater.

One of the better restaurants in the area with a lovely view of the lake. Prices are close to NYC prices which we didn't mind (we're from NYC) except for a $12 special salad that was ridiculously small desserts not. Wine is weird. No individual glasses available, it's all local and not very good as far as we were concerned. Still a cut above any place else we've found in the area.

I hesitate telling your readers about Andre’s so the restaurant doesn’t get so popular that I can’t get a table. This is one of the really terrific BYOB restaurants, and you don’t have to deal with driving to Montclair or Summit. The menu seems different every time we visit, and creative.....very creative.

We were warmly welcomed and taken to our table. We made our choices. The bread of the night was focaccia and it was delicious. It was have been nice to have a bread basket on the table. I’m sure the server would have brought more if we wanted more. The corn chowder was very good as was the grilled octopus. The swordfish special was tasty and I prefer my fish fairly plane but some might want a sauce. The strip steak was tender and just the right size. The scallops were tasty and plentiful but not particularly large. Dessert was creamy homemade ice cream with some interesting flavors. The brownie was just the right size and very chocolatey. The service was excellent and very attentive. They always checked on the food and any needs we might have. Not an inexpensive dinner but worth the price. The tables were nicely spaced and the noise level was tolerable.

Andre's is a great restaurant. Its (relatively) new location on Seneca Lake has added some extra "romanticism" that the Newton location couldn't have: lakeside seating, sunsets and all. The BYOB option does make the check lighter. The food rarely disappoints (and I am capricious), if at all.

We had chosen Andre's Lakeside Dining to celebrate our friend’s 60th birthday. We had came from 3 different NJ townships outside of Sussex plus NYC, so this place was a little out of the way (easy to get to) but worth the trip. We had a total of 10 people, nice size crowd, but not a big party so we were pleasantly surprised when I called for the dress code, and was told that we would be seated in a private room on the second floor with a balcony looking on to the lake. The venue is beautiful and warm place with outdoor seating available. We took advantage of the lake setting and took scenic pictures before our meal. Shout out to everyone who worked there - servers, hostess; all friendly and attentive. Our water and wine glasses were always filled and dishes cleared promptly. The 3 different breads offered were very good. We all opted to do the 5 course dinner with different entrees. It was a little pricy but had expected the expense with the added soup, salad, starter and dessert; It helped the it was a BYOB. My entree of Sea scallops was made perfectly. I also tasted the Duck dish and found that to be delicious. Everyone had enjoyed their food and experience and most importantly, our birthday gal has a great birthday.
