This is by far our favorite restaurant in Newport. The service is impeccable and the food is amazing. If you dine and love a well prepared soufflé, Bouchard's is one of the best you will ever taste.

One person in your party needs to go into the restaurant and obtain the parking voucher. They will then direct you to the free parking lot.
