If a trip to Paris is not in the cards, the next best experience is dining at Restaurant Bouchard. Surrounded by my dear friends I was treated to an amazing birthday celebration. From the delivery of the first cocktail to the final complimentary champagne toast, my dinner experience will be long remembered. Each dish was beautifully presented and gastronomically delicious!...

My husband and I choose this restaurant after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We were so pleased! When we entered the restaurant we were greeted warmly and the hostess offered to take our coats. We were escorted to a small table on the side and then we met Dan, our captain. We enjoyed the " just baked" bread,... More

This is a wonderful restaurant serving modern French in a classical style. The wait staff was great. The cozy dining room was just what we needed on a cold March night. We dined on exquisite lobster bisque and luscious house pate. The fabulous coffee dusted Magret duck was worth the three hour drive. The Grand Marnier soufflé was a crown... More

My husband and I visited Bouchard on the eve of our wedding. It was the perfect romantic spot and the food was absolutely fabulous! The best French onion soup that I've had in some time and the soufflé is a must for desert!

I pampered myself by eating here 3 out of the 4 days I was in Newport. Yes, it was expensive, but ah such amazing gourmet dinners. The lobster was delightful. Decor sedate. Could have done with up-dated music, not Frank Sinatra.

This is such a beautiful place; quiet and elegant with fantastic food, drinks and service. We had to wait a couple of days to get a reservation but having been there before, we knew it would be worth it and it was. Food is divinely delicious and it is an overall lovely experience.
