Being inside cafe andree is like being in the center of french cuisine. Foods are very nice and I like when they serve it on time and hot. Price is kinda unfriendly though.

given that the dinning room is the size a average living room, dont let it fool you.
the sevice is good, never crowded that table, they leave you alone yet give the attention nessisary.
menu is limmited but appropriate for the volume.
food was good, a bit salty (I had the scallops), salad was tasty, dressing was really good.
portion on the scallops was small.
Water glasses were always full and table cleared timley.
over all I would go back.

California cuisine. The food is fresh to the table. The chef is wonderful. We were so pleased with our dinning experience. We would go back the next time we are in town. Try the vegetable combo.

We found the Cafe Andree through colleagues who live in the area and decided to check them out for brunch one day. Lovely atmosphere, overall a great dining experience. Food was delightful.

Cafe Andree is one of my favorite restaurants in the city.
Man Ray prints on the tables, bookcases and mirrors, comfortable seating, (never a wait) and friendly service: Kind of like eating in a rich friend's library, without the pretension. Very studiously, I have attended to the menu. It's Tapas-style (I LOVE small things served beautifully). I also love that romantic dining.

I won't complain to you about the Squash Blossom fritters: really unique, crunchy, and delicious. Or, the duck confit salad, or ahi tuna tartare with mango and and avocado: so fresh! The pumpkin, mushroom, marscapone ravioli is unbearably delicious -- large ravioli tucked in creamy sauce. And, I'm hesitant to admit this, should this favored restaurant get busier, but the chocolate cake is to die for! And it's quiet, unassuming, delightful dining.

Cafe Andree is located in the Hotel Rex, a small quaint hotel owned by Joie de Vivre Hospitality -- the name says it all... A joy to live, a joy to eat and drink!

Speaking of which, if you've got time before dinner, go lounge in the bar area (near the hotel check-in).I used to do this all the time when I first moved to the city; one of the best ways to know a city is to visit its hotels. That said, the lounge area has plump sofas and chairs, big tables 1920's style, kind service, and good drinks: perfect for after work drinks, dates, or moments post-shopping on Powell. Sometimes, they have performances in the room to the right, which is perfect if you want some time to lounge. Ahh, the joys of the city!

Quite ordinary to say the least. Maybe dinner is better than breakfast, but the waiter seemed as though he had been up all night. The toast was cold. The jam was Smuckers in a little plastic container that we had to ask for twice (and still didn't come). Ordered coffee that didn't come. Water arrived when we were preparing to leave.

I've been trying to give up red meat I think the steak here was good enough to be my last. Fabulous. And the preparation was equal to the steak itself. I went with colleagues and they all praised the tapas. This is a really nice little room, and service was extremely attentive yet unobtrusive. Wine list was okay, but the qulity of the food was exceptional, especially relative to price.

I was recently traveling to SF for business and ventured out for a quiet dinner by myself at Cafe Andree (based on the good reviews I read). I was pleasantly surprised by the quaint little restaurant located in Hotel Rex and the attentive, but unimposing service. I had a wonderful churrasco steak (tender slices of beef atop trumpet mushrooms and vegetable ragout - braised to perfection, wonderfully sweet and tender chunks of a variety of root vegetables, interspersed with fragrant mushrooms) accompanied by a glass of pinot noir. I would definitely return to this place in my future visits to the City. One interesting thing of note is that there were a lot of women dining alone in this place - I suppose I can see why - good food, quiet, peaceful atmosphere, but still worthy of notice.

I was shopping in Union Square with my girlfriend when we stumbled on a hidden gem on Sutter Street! It was this quaint restaurant, called Cafe Andree. It's an intimate restaurant with awesome food. The staff were very friendly, too. It's great to have a restaurant that's so close to Union Square and yet away from the hustle and bustle of shoppers. The food is California cuisine and really gooooood and unique. The price is so reasonable, too! You really can't go wrong. Why go to Scala's where each menu item is overpriced?

I looked up this place on citysearch for a birthday dinner and the restaurant lived up to its 9.8 rating in all respects! The setting was very quaint - library/study room-like - and the service was professional, courteous, and efficient. We shared many small plates and each dish was flavorful and distinct. All of the ingredients seemed fresh and of good quality and the variety of menu items was also a plus. Definitely worth a visit.

Pros: conveniently located, excellent food

.

We arrived early at Cafe Andree as a party of three. The staff was attentive and we were quickly situated. The space is small and cozy as previously described. There was music playing (french) which added a to the atmosphere, but was a trifle on the louder side. I would have preferred a lower volume which would have made for a nice background hum. Overall the volume was comfortable and pretty good for conversations.

Now to the food! And what wonderful food it was. We opened with the Squash Blossom Fritters that were amazingly light and crispy. It was followed by the Duck Confit Enchiladas that was certainly flavorful and would probably make a good lunch with small salad. We enjoyed the Coconut Prawns and the Scallop Ceviche Tostadas (came with 2 little tostadas). We were very impressed with the robust flavor of the Churrasco Steak served on a bed of french fries. The steak was served thinly sliced and was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed a good and subtle reisling and a hearty cabernet sauvignon with the meal and the best part was, we didn't have to order full glasses. They were 3 oz tasting portions. The wine selection was a little on the thin side for me, but the ability to try any of the listings with a tasting portion was an wonderful opportunity that I fully intend to take advantage of in the future. We capped off the meal with 2 orders of the Banana and Walnut Empanadas with vanilla ice cream. I can honestly say we ate every scrap of food on our plates.

As for portions and price, I will say that I prefer the fact that the portions are not meant to leave you gasping for air. Quantity is not always a plus in my book. The price is extremely fair for the portions, quality and level of service we received.

Given the opportunity, I expect to go back and often. It's not every day you come across a gem like this one.

Pros: Location to Union Square, food, half servings of wine available

The service was very professional--our waitress did not remove any plates until we were all finished which shows great manners. I am always last to finish and feel rushed when the plates of others are removed. Cafe Andree got it right! I wish more restaurants in San Francisco would return to this level of etiquette. The food was delicious--beautiful presentation, generous portions and amazing flavors. Some our favorite dishes included the duck enchilada, the fish of the day and the chocolate cake for dessert.

Argentinian/French food to die for. The empanadas and sweet corn soup were lovely, and every main dish we tried was fabulous. The place is extremely quiet--everyone speaks in low voices, and there's no music in the background. However, the place is perfect for a relaxed evening of conversation and exceptional food. The restaurant is in the Hotel Rex, which is an amazing hotel. I highly recommend Cafe Andree and Hotel Rex.

I was most impressed with this restaurant considering we usually go to more expensive and stuffy places in the city. This place has class as well as great service and great food. All the servers were very pleasant and very accomodating. The food was great. Keep in mind that they are tapas (smaller portions) so some of the reviews that you read rant on the portion size without realizing what they are. I prefer the tapas because you can try a bit of everything on the menu and I loved everything. The wine list is not huge, but there is quite a selection that you can chose from. AND, most importantly, the wines were NOT over priced at all.
Take a loved one there and enjoy a nice, quiet, tasty dinner. Don't over pay at those other stuffy restaurants! Go Here!

Deciding where to dine when in Union Square is difficult with so many over priced options.

The answer? Cafe Andree located within the HotelRex!

Location is great since it is near the shops and its quaint size allows for an intimate dinner with one's companion.

The menu is diverse and the description of each dish made my mouth water. We started with Arugula salad. My daughter ordered the Rib Eye and I, the Polenta. Both were delicious. Dessert=chocolate torte. Yum.

In addition, the service was superb. The waitress was very knowledgable about the wine list and her suggestion of a bold red to compliment the Rib Eye was perfect.

Our experience at Cafe Andree made me realize that you can find an affordable, delicious and convenient meal when in Union Square. Try it for lunch when it is easy to get a table and enjoy people watching out the window.

I had dinner tonight @ Cafe Andree for the first time and was unimpressed and disappointed by the whole experience. I ordered their special large plate of the evening: swordfish with mash potatoes/asparagus. It sounded enticing but when the food was brought out, the swordfish was smaller than the palm of my hand and my hand is not very big. The fish was also bland as if someone had just popped it on the grill with no seasonsing. And for the portion size and lack of flavor, $21 is alot to pay. The service was absolutely atrocious as the wait staff would just disappear seemingly for hours. This echoes the same lack of service the first time I dined here for weekend brunch. It's too bad as the space itself is quite charming but really not recommended.

Cafe Andree has a very New York-tucked-away-restaurant feel. It is place where one is in no rush, just savoring the company and the food. This is certainly a place for a casually elegant romantic rendezvous, or a mother-daughter bonding after a show or a day of shopping. I feel that I can eat here by myself at any time of day and feel relaxed and safe.

I ordered the $23.00 grilled rib-eye steak with grilled asparagus and the $8.00 dulce de leche creme brulee. The excellent presentation was even surpassed by the actual taste and flavor of the steak! The creme brulee was huge, exquisite!

Too bad I could only order one entree or it would have been gluttony! I already have my eye (and appetite) on the Beef short ribs, the grilled halibut and the menu staple, the churrasco steak for next time. I SHALL RETURN FOR MORE!

Inside this charming but unassuming eatery youll find surprisingly affordable quality. Most dishes were better than average, some being exceptional. Small menu manages a variety of tastes and textures. Dishes are reasonably priced with most small and medium ranging between 7-11 bucks, and mains in the 12-20 range. Wine menu is small by CA standards. I recommend the tortilla soup and the steak au poivre. Banana empanadas were beautifully plated! The service was a bit slow, but they were all very polite and friendly when you flagged one down. The seating arrangements are "cozy", with most tables little more than a foot apart. Still, the place wasn't overly noisy and the intimate quarters add to the charm. It may not blow away people accustomed to SF's most elite venues, but it's perfect for those looking for great value in a high quality dining experience. Andree is well worth a try.

The food is great, but the large party of "regulars" were so loud that we could not hear ourselves think. Made it very tough to have a conversation. Service was slow and the first 2 bottles of wine on their very limited wine list were not available. Another patron was told that they were out of Ketel One vodka. I ordered the tasting menu and was told that it probably couldn't all be there in time given that we only had 1 1/2 hours before we needed to leave for our curtain. The food was really good, but I wouldn't go there again. The management needs some attention.

Any place that rated 9.9 and had 11 great reviews was worth a shot. The table was ready when we arrived, the atmosphere was cozy but upscale, and the food and service were the same. My daughters loved their dinners -- the steak was superb -- and our other two entrees were excellent. The wine list was good, not overwhelming or intimidating, and our waitress's recommendation was perfect. Didn't sample the desserts, which we should have, as the desserts at the Redwood Room in the Clift Hotel were bland and over-priced. We had a very memorable dinner at Cafe Andree. Their suggestion for parking was pricey, better to park a few blocks away at Sutter St. Garage

In my constant quest to dine in unfamiliar restaurants for the experience, I scanned Citysearch for something unique and was drawn to the high rating and reviews Cafe Andre recieved on this site. So, I went to check it out.

FABULOUS!!!

My wife and I passed by the restaurant twice on foot without noticing it. Two hotel doormen around the corner had no idea what I was talking about when I asked for the restaurant by name. Finally, we found it. This totally unassuming little restaurant serves some absolutely spectacular plates. I recommend sampling one of each size. In conclusion, it's one of those places in the city I consider to be a hidden gem. Enjoy!

It's amazing that I hadn't heard of this restaurant even though it is so close to Union Square.

We ordered the small and medium plates and everything we got was delicious. The Tartare with Ahi Tuna, Mango and Avacado was simply amazing, as was the potato tortilla with grilled prawns. The duck confit enchiladas should probably be listed as a medium plate rather than small; it was scrumptious nonetheless.

I will defintely go back to try their other stuff, especially the banana walnut empanada with French Vanilla gelato on their desert menu.

They have a fixed-price menu which looked pretty good too. I believe they regularly change their a-la-carte menu, so look forward to more delicious food at this amazing restaurant.

If you like trendy, over-priced , over-rated restaurants with an attitude then do not come here. If you want very fine creative dining in a relaxed atmosphere then have dinner with Andree. The restaurant has a New Yorker theme and you dine in a comfortable setting of a home library. It is intimate, romantic , friendly and quiet. We had the fixed menus with accompanying wine pairings (one Chef's tasting menu and one vegetarian). French nouvelle cuisine with a Latino kick beautifully presented. The Steak au poivre was perfection. All for less than $100 for two! The service was friendly but imperfect. The menu and wine options needed some explanation which we did not get. This place is a winner.

I really enjoyed the dinner I recently had at Cafe Andree. Each bite resonated with tastebud popping flavor. The presentation? It was visually stimulating... very satisfying eye candy. What a profoundly perfect fusion of Latino and French cuisine! I will definitely recommend the restaurant to many others. With Cafe Andree, how can one go wrong? My personal three musts were present in each meal: flavor, presentation and an extremely reasonable price for such an adventurous meal! And by the way, Cafe Andree is adjacent to the lobby of the Hotel Rex. I was there on a weekend night, so I also got to listen in on the live jazz and acoustic musical performances at the lobby.

I really enjoyed the dinner I recently had at Cafe Andree. Each bite resonated with tastebud popping flavor. The presentation? It was visually stimulating... very satisfying eye candy. What a profoundly perfect fusion of Latino and French cuisine! I will definitely recommend the restaurant to many others. With Cafe Andree, how can one go wrong? My personal three musts were present in each meal: flavor, presentation and an extremely reasonable price for such an adventurous meal! And by the way, Cafe Andree is adjacent to the lobby of the Hotel Rex. I was there on a weekend night, so I also got to listen in on the live jazz and acoustic musical performances at the lobby. Another tantalizing treat!

The prefixed menu for dinner was very affordable--$34.00 with wine pairings for $15.00 additional. The food was delicious, presentation was great, and service was awesome!

We'll come back again soon.

This restaurant is a hidden gem! I had lunch with a client and was greeted by the friendly staff. The food was delicious and unique. It's a nice place to getaway from the Union Square crowd. Cafe Andree is located on Sutter Street inside the Hotel Rex.

The hotel looks great, too! If I were not living in S.F., it's a hotel that I would have stayed at.

cafe andree offers up the best qualities of the mission district restaurants in the heart of union square. the food, wine, and cocktails are wonderful, the atmosphere is great, and at the end of the meal the price tag is extremely reasonable. once you have tried the tortilla soup, the argentine empanadas, or the duck confit enchiladas, you will be hooked. i also like the fact that the wine and beer lists offer quality choices not often found in most restaurants.

My niece, grandniece and nephew took me to Cafe Andree for dinner after seeing Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story. What a pleasant surprise to be able to enjoy dinner without being rushed. Thank you, to the staff of Cade Andree for making my birthday special. The food and service were outstanding. They get a prefect 10 in my book.

The new Cafe Andree at the Rex Hotel is one of San Francisco's newest secrets.
I work in Union Square and I have been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I used to take clients to Postrio or Scala's, but Cafe Andree's quality of food is much better and certainly the value is.
I am confident that Cafe Andree will be a success, but of course I am worried that I wont get a seat.

My companion and I shared five small and medium plates, and each one was absolutely wonderful -- fresh and lively flavors, beautifully presented, reasonably priced. The selection of wines by the half-glass (and glass) was also excellent and complemented the food well.

I can't wait to go back and try the things we didn't have room for!

In Short
Tucked into an annex off the lobby, this tiny space feels more like a library than a dining room. A large, chocolate-colored bookshelf, crammed with colorful hardcovers and antique globes, runs the full length of the…
