The new bar and entrance is a good place for your pre-dinner drink. However, the dining room is where you’ll find the respite from the Las Vegas action and the introduction to fine dining. If you are looking for a romantic restaurant, Andre’s brings a little of that flair you need to induce romance into your night. Fine dining has a way of doing that.
The cigar lounge is impressive but the wine collection is enough for me to linger over a meal while looking at some incredible selections, sitting in a climate controlled room waiting to be opened.

How’s the food at Andre’s at the Monte Carlo Las Vegas?
First, the wine list is a wine lovers dream. It reads like a great novel, with a journey to the great wine producing countries on the planet. The Sommelier is not the reason to drink wine but he is the reason why you should not pick your own bottle. Call him over and have him discuss what you like, what you’ll eat and most importantly what you want to spend. Let me say that again, do not be afraid to say, “I don’t want to spend too much on a bottle of wine.” The Sommelier will have a great bottle for you and he will pair it perfectly with your food. Your experience at Andre’s will become a mini lesson on French cuisine and fine wine.
A few suggestions for your dinner at Andre’s Las Vegas:
- Pan Seared Foie Gras – Caramelized Apples, a Crème Anglaise and a Port wine reduction. This is a dish that you might not be prone to order as a starter but it is a must. The apple, combined with the sauce will gently coerce your taste buds to fully enjoy the Foie Gras. The delicate flavors will take over your palate. You should probably have a nice Rose’ to help you with this dish.
- Scampi Andre – Jumbo shrimp, pernod, sweet basil crème – This is the scampi that will forbid you from ever allowing marginal scampi from approaching your lips. The shrimp seem to have been swimming in the sauce since birth as they are infused with so much flavor that you’ll slow way down just to enjoy every last bite.
- Dover Sole – Sauteed with Capers – Honestly, they should imprison the chef because the Dover Sole at Andre’s is so out of this world good that you could take over small countries with it. First, the portion is huge, so make sure you are hungry but once you take a bite you’ll make a reservation to come back the next night.
- Maine Lobster Thermidor – Have you ever seen a picture of the perfect lobster that has been prepared to perfection and you salivate from the image? This thing is huge and you will have a hard time slowing down, but you must, savor every nuance of the preparation.
