Excellent as usual - this is our favorite restaurant and is a rare gem in Sussex county.

Service was a little quicker than we would have liked as we would have liked to linger a little longer but given the 25% occupancy absolutely no complaints!

Love this place!

Andres, on New Year’s Eve was a Delight full dining experience. The Owner, her son, and all the other young people waiting on us was so refreshing. They were all very attentive. The sole entrée was delicious! The Cocoa rolled candies hit my heart! Loved the dining room set up as well. Looking forward to a return, 😇would love to sit outside on the lake. Best of luck to Andres!

Andre's never disappoints, it's always a fantastic night out. The food, the service and atmosphere are beyond compare. There isn't a restaurant in Sparta that comes near it. You will 100% have a fantastic night out here and any celebration is elevated by choosing Andre's.

I don't give 5 stars because I always think I need to save that but I could here. Great food. So many wonderful tastes in every dish. This is truly fine dining that makes you realize how bad so many other restaurants really are. Our server was very professional and helpful. We will keep returning.

The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice, especially during the pandemic. Tables were socially distant yet still set up for a nice experience. Light dinner music played and the food was excellent!! We had one mediocre appetizer and they removed it and provided a complimentary alternative which was excellent. I would definitely go back again. Well worth it.

It was a price fix 4 course offering so the menu was limited but what was offered was outstanding. Excellent pasta appetizer and one of the best steaks I have had in a long time.

We are light eaters and we always share a plate. They would not let us do that for some reason. First time we have had to buy twice the food we could eat.

Food is good so if you are more regular eaters then it’s probably not going to be an issue for you.

Perhaps we can just order one serving to go next time.

We had a fantastic evening at Andre’s. It was private dining with only 2 tables in the entire restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was exceptional! Will definitely go again.

We were able to enjoy the appetizer which was a variety of cheeses. The first course was salad and my oldest son was thrilled with a white bean soup. The second course was a strip steak which was cooked to perfection. My husband and oldest son ordered the salmon which was served over grits. The third course was desert which was absolutely fabulous! Our overall experience was fantastic!! Thank you Chef Andre for a wonderful Birthday Dinner!!

I was really looking forward to eating at this restaurant. I have a mixed opinion of Andres. We had the 3 course prefix dinner, we chose to add an appetizer of shredded short rib with pasta and white beans. When it arrived it had chunks of steak, not short ribs, the sauce throughout need salt. The salad course was delicious. The NY strip steak was cooked properly but there was a tendon that made the steak hard to chew. The mashed potatoes were the worst, they had no flavor at all and over processed so as to make the potatoes gummy. The spinach was cooked perfectly and dessert was great. I won’t hurry back there since it is pricey.

The evening was wonderful, the food outstanding and the service was terrific.

The five courses provided more food than any of us could consume comfortably so in the future we will order a la carte.

It was a perfect night from the time we sat down rite up to when we finished desert. We started out with a cheese platter witch was amazing. Onion soup with fresh Quail was a first for me. The main course was a Munk fish in a buck wheat porridge another first for me.
My girlfriend and I loved all the gifts that came from the kitchen throughout our meal. Such attention to detail with everything
We can’t wait to go back

What Thursdays mean to me: ANDRE'S! I had a lovely dinner once again last night and chose to eat indoors as everyone else was outside. They continued to adhere to all Covid protocols perfectly throughout the meal as well. If you haven't experienced a Thursday night yet...ask yourself "what am I waiting for?"

Limited fixed menu due to COVID but restaurant definitely lived up to its reputation. We dined there for the first time and ate outside under the tent on a cold evening! Heater and blankets made the evening super. Andre came out to check on us and our experience....what a nice guy!! Food was terrific...would definitely return and look forward to full menu in the future
