This was my first time there. The staff was very friendly and professional. All the courses were very good, They serve only products from the Santa Barbara area. The quality - Price ratio is excellent. this is not a WOW but a very good choice.

Food great. Service unassuming but attentive. Know that it’s close seating a la Le Central and other bistros but the duck and venison were the best. Wine pairing recommendations spot on. Very enjoyable dining.

Everything about Bouchon's is 5 Star. The service, the food, the atmosphere... It is one of our favorite places in Santa Barbara and will remain so for some time. We've been coming here for three years and its always great.
