The food and service are very good. Very French. Dessert was disappointing, though. Two people, one drink each, a bottle of wine, appetizers and main course for both, split the dessert and it was $270. So not good if you are on a budget. Also, a fairly strict dress code, which I actually liked.

Enjoyed a lovely meal and evening at Bouchards. The food was fabulous. We were not rushed and our waiter was fabulous. We celebrated an anniversary dinner and we will remember this as a lovely memory.

I give out very few top ratings, but this is one that I do not hesitate to rate 5 out of 5. Service, atmosphere and food are all first rate. We have been here three or four times, the most recent being May 2017. The lobster bisque is the best I have ever had, even better than my own. We... More

Restaurant Bouchard continues to be an utterly exquisite dining experience. I had not been there for a number of years and was thrilled to discover that "fine dining" still exists. Black tie waiters, European atmosphere, unparalleled cuisine and presentation. This is an amazing restaurant, whether for special occasions or for no occasion at all.

We had dinner at Restaurant Bouchard. They have a lovely French menu. The pâté appetizer was excellent. My husband enjoyed the foie gras very much as well. Our guests seemed to enjoy their selections. Entrees were all excellent. The soufflé was outstanding. The service was good but could have been more attentive. We had a leisurely dinner but did feel... More

My family and I enjoyed an outstanding dinner at Bouchard last night (Friday). We were seated immediately at a great table and were offered cheaters to help read the menu. The cocktails were exceptional and the service was excellent. We enjoyed several appetizers - escargots, the Mediterranean endive salad as well as multiple entrees - the duck, a veal chop,... More

We went for our 35th anniversary dinner. Food was outstanding. Service was attentive yet not intrusive. We each had Vol au Vent d’Asperges et de Homard Asparagus and Lobster in Puff Pastry, with a Lemon Beurre Blanc which was outstanding especially the Lemon Beurre Blanc sauce. We also had the Dover Sole and the Double Chops of Rack of Lamb... More

Homey and comfortable setting, excellent service, top-notch food start to finish, and ample time to really enjoy and take it all in. You must make reservations, and there is a minimum dress code as business casual (no jeans, etc). Our reservation was at 7:30 pm and by the time we finished, it was after 10 pm. It was a very...
