We've been coming to Hanalei for over 20 years but always avoided Bouchons because it looks like a typical tourist trap that offers a great view and nothing else. So, the view is good but not the best on Kauai and the food is very good. I chose the sashimi and heart of cucumber salad. The fish was just fine... More

After seeing most of the restaurants had a line we decided to try this one. Apart from the Lava Flow cocktail (which was delicious) I wouldn't recommend anything else. The entree came out after people behind us in line got their mains. Then 2 seconds later, our mains came out which was cold and didn't have the sides we were... More

We visited this place a few days ago, and were not impressed at all. It took forever to be seated because the hostess had disappeared and wasn't anywhere to be found. When she appeared, we were immediately seated. Our server was nice and frequently checked up on us, but it took way too long to get our appetizer which was... More

We stopped at this Japanese American restaurant one rainy night while exploring the North Coast of Kauai. The ambience was very nice and we enjoyed sushi and mai tais at a leisurely meal. The teenagers found food to order for their tastes so all were happy.

Travelling with older teenagers, we were staying at Kailua and drove up to Hanalei for a day trip. After a long day we were ready to drive back and find a place to dine closer to home. We stopped to have a wander around Hanalei town and at the las minute checked the menu and ventured up the stairs to... More

We visited on a very busy night a few weeks before Christmas. We waited about 15 minutes to be seated and could tell everyone was VERY busy. We got prompt attention from our server, and food and drinks came in good time. He even brought us out a little bowl of fries first when we said we were starving -... More

Took 35 minutes for 5 people to be seated even though we had a reservation. They forgot 3 of our orders (edamame, salad and chicken tenders). It also took forever. I think it was probably just because they weren't used to being so busy.

When we arrived, we were told there would be a 15 minute wait to order because the kitchen was backed up. We arrived at 1:35, our food arrived at 2:50. Crab cakes were cold, fish sandwich was raw, medium rare burger was charred. One entree never arrived. The waitress, seriously distracted as she chased her kid around the restaurant, snapped...

Sorry no short version, waited to get acknowledged to be seated. waited for server to introduce himself, waited to be asked for second drink... More

Made a reservation for this based on the reviews. Glad we did. The staff is very friendly and the sushi was fresh. We didn't have to wait very long either. We tried the aloha roll, Vegas roll and one other. All were delicious. Edamame appetizer was nice too. It is not a fancy place, so come as you are.

Our relaxed and spacious second story, open-air restaurant has a great ambiance and best picture taking views of Hanalei's mountains and waterfalls. Visitors and locals come time and time again for Bouchon's Pacific-American menu that's filled with a great selection of fresh homemade pupus, local caught seafood, teriyaki chicken, ribs and a premier sushi bar second to none. The famous Copper Bar serves up everything from soft drinks to Saki, including our very popular Mai-Tai. Located in the heart of Hanalei, we have the perfect gathering place to enjoy with family and friends.
