OMG we eat out a lot and have high standards, the food in New Zealand is of such great quality North American places can find it hard to match, but not Bouchons. Naturally they had all the french nuances that we don't have (the mini gherkins and dijon mustard side servings were a nice addition to the chicken terrine) but... More

I wanted to take my mother for a fine dining experience and Bouchons is certainly the place for a one of a kind evening. Delicious food paired with great wine in an upscale bistro. Service was amazing, our waitress was knowledgable and helpful, she really made our night.

Outstanding atmosphere, Okay food. Every dish tasted like it was purchased frozen from either Sysco or Costco. Edible but hardly fine dining. But the ambience was perfect, and the wine selection reasonable for Canada and BC, which seems to tax the bejeesus out of alcohol or otherwise make it hard to come by. Foodies will be slightly disappointed. Average diners... More

Although we're only infrequent visitors to Kelowna, we've gotten into the habit of eating here whenever we're in town. Sitting outside on the patio surrounded by cast iron fencing and greenery, eating excellent French cuisine served by real servers, it would be easy to believe that we're back in France. Although the regular menu looks excellent, we invariably end up... More

This bistro was a great stop during our brief visit to Okanagan. We were in the mood for French food and atmosphere and this bistro definitely delivered. The décor and ambiance was casually upscale and it was attractively decorated. The restaurant had good lighting and the interesting layout allowed for quiet and privacy. The service was prompt, attentive and knowledgeable.... More

We visited Kelowna last year and again this year, and both times, we went to Bouchons with fairly large groups (last year was a group of 8) and this year, arrived with 4 adults and 1 child. The staff are always very friendly and professional. I quite enjoyed the way our server worded their drink choices for our child. Child:... More

We never miss dinner at Bouchons when we come to Kelowna. The food and service is consistently excellent. There's a really good wine list that includes French as well as local labels. The lamb was particularly good the night we were there. Merveilleux!!

Bouchons was a nice surprise. Having arrived at this restaurant after a day at the lake, we had no idea what to expect. We had pulled the name almost out of a hat, with a little help from other Tripadvisors. We had no reservations (recommended), and had to wait a bit (well wroth it). Service was great, menu varied, bread... More
