This was our second trip to Restaurant Bouchard and had another wonderful evening. The food was perfect. Wine superb. Service top notch. This is what five stars should be.

We dined for our anniversary based on reviews here on Trip Advisor and it did not dissapoint! We were only able to secure a 9pm reservation as it books weeks in advance, but we were not rushed and I was determined to dine here so the time was fine. As all the previous reviews have stated, it was excellent. The... More

Wonderful surprise of a restaurant in Newport. Authentic, delicious menu. Many special touches. Small and intimate. A special treat in busy and at times loud Newport. Wonderful wine list, and Veuve by the glass. Wonderful for Champagne lovers who don't want to drink an entire bottle.

We were visiting my cousins in Newport and they told us that we would be going to Bouchard's for dinner on Sunday night. I know that this is one of their favorite restaurants. The food is French and the setting was lovely: white tablecloths and napkins, soft lighting. There was a little bit of misunderstanding about the parking. My cousin... More

The restaurant is small and elegant and the service was top notch. The food was even better. I had the duck and my sister had the cod which was a special. Also they have an extensive wine list. All told it was a lovely experience.

The staff here is excellent, attentive, and bends over backward to make your evening memorable. My wife had an appetizer of asparagus and scallops she is still talking about followed by an entree of Fluke that she said was excellent. I, on the other hand wanted their stuffed Lobster, but found that it had a Fish Stock base, I am... More

Had the pleasure of dining at Bouchards this month. What a wonderful experience! Food was over the top. Tuna tartare started was some of the best I've had. Filet dish (traditional) was outstanding and you could cut it with the butter knife. Presentations were wonderful as well. The captain (Max) suggested a cleansing salad between courses. Light and wonderful beet... More

This restaurant is amoung our top twenty on the east coast. Probably the best in Newport.The food is delicious. The menu has classic dishes and wonderful specials. The restaurant has a fantistic, yet, expensive wine list. However, if you have a medium knowledge of wine you can have a fantastic pairing. I highly recommend Cafe Bouchard. They have a great...
