If you're in the mood for delicious French cooking without the fru-fru tiny portions that you see in really high-end places, then this is the place. Dark, rich onion soup. Fantastic Beef Bourginon. Meaty braised lamb shank. All excellently prepared and VERY tasty. We waited...More

Abby is an amazing bartender and set the tone. Owner is a joy! When the vibe of the patrons and the staff is as good as it is at Bouchon, it's easy to forget how wonderful the food is. I'd be a regular if I...More

We recently dined at Bouchon and had a wonderful meal. The ambience was nice and the food and service were perfect. If you enjoy the atmosphere of French bistros I highly recommend Bouchon.

If you have dined-out in Paris you will not be disappointed with the ambience and food experience at Bouchon. The menu is typically French, well priced and great quality. Great service in a central location with friendly staff. Bon appetite!!

Very good French bistro cuisine at decent prices. If you like mussels, they offer all-you-can-eat Monday through Wednesday. No reservations, so get there early. And they specialize in French fries (pomme frites, I believe, is the correct term), so if you like them, don't miss...More

No, they do not. Bouchon Asheville is walk-in only, first come, first serve.
Is it true that bouchon has a bakery and serves crissanrs and other breakfast items in the morning.

I don't think they have a bakery. Bouchon is a bistro and doesn't open until 5:00 pm. Perhaps you are confusing it with its sister restaurant next door, Creperie Bouchon, which is more of a Parisian cafe, but still not a... More
