Great atmosphere, house white was excellent, frites were the best I have had in a long time and perfectly cooked steak. Go early as you cannot make a reservation.

Great crepes, onion soup to die for. The owner is french, and he knows the cuisine well. Outside seating as well. Great atmosphere.

Be prepared to wait for a table, small and crowded, but worth the wait. We had dinner there one night. Excellent service, wonderful food. Returned another night for a light snack at the bar.

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
