I was really disappointed in this restaurant, s the reviews are quite good. I ordered Beef Bourguignon, and it was more like a thin beef soup as opposed to rich and hearty meals full of great flavors. The beef was tender but the meal was...More

My wife and I went on a Monday night when they run their all-you-can-eat Moules et Frites special. We arrived about 6:30, which we thought would be no problem for a Monday. Boy, were we wrong! We were told the wait would be about an...More

You will wait for a table unless you are on the early side, but it is worth the wait. We waited at the bar, and bartender is excellent and personable. Our food was everything we had heard it would be and we will be back!

If you’re looking for a fancy place worth the wait, this is the place. Ambience, food, and service are all a solid 10. The duck was perfect, and my husbands beef burgundy was delectable. Will return!

Food was delicious. Wine list could be better. Champagne needs to be revised. Great Service. Reservations a MUST.

Bouchon is a must-do for my wife and I every time we return to Asheville. You won't find better French cuisine this side of the pond outside of a handful of chi-chi restaurants in NYC and Washington DC, and maybe not even then. Walking into...More

This was a fourth or fifth visit to Bouchon, and we have never had a bad or even average meal. The one drawback to the establishment is that you are going to have to wait. The venue is small and leads to waiting. There is...More

We loved our dinner at Bouchon. Be prepared to wait for your seat. They do not take reservations. We were fortunate to quickly get a seat at the bar event though we arrived early (5:30) in the night. The couple that arrived behind us was...More

No, they do not. Bouchon Asheville is walk-in only, first come, first serve.

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
