Last evening when looking for somewhere to have dinner we stumbled on this restaurant that I knew existed but never had eaten at. I must say this French restaurant was fantastic.

Menu choices are limited. rices are high. It is a fine dining not mid-range. Not for families with kids.

Exceptional service and amazing food.Presentation was impressive and very tasty too. Two people in our group are vegetarian and their main course was a hit. Great value for money. We had a lovely evening, thank you.

Food and Service is consistently excellent. Diverse menu and imprecise wine. Can seem a bit expensive but is worth every dollars you spend. For sure, one of the best restaurants in Kelowna.

Perhaps the best restaurant in Kelowna. We had the absolute best French Onion soup ever. The service was great and the atmosphere very enjoyable. Great place for a special occasion or a great meal with friends. We will definitely be back.

Fine European dining. The kitchen created a custom order vegetarian dish for my wife. Absolutely superb. Great variety of meat and fowl as well. Also all meals served with the best order of french fries around, rather odd for a french restaurant, but one of their signature quirks. Never disappointed with Bouchons. Make a reservation

The service is extremely high class. Your glass is never empty for a moment. Often the server has a french accent, which adds to the ambiance. The food is so flavourful that it is unlike any other restaurant in the city. You feel like you are in France.

We enjoyed a delicious supper on Sunday May 17th, organized as part of a bachelorette party. I personally enjoyed the delicious chicken dish option and the amazing chocolate mousse for dessert! Everything was perfect!! The serving staff was attentive, my water glass was never empty! Excellent restaurant. I would for sure recommend this to friends and family!

We like the cuisine but find the atmosphere a little sparse and limited...the chairs are not that comfortable and the tables are a little small for comfort.
