Menu on Valentines Day

Again, I had a wonderful menu on Valentines day. The products were fresh and the presentation of each course was just great. I especially liked the way the Head Chef offered us in addition their famous onion soup and 12 osters ahead of the well created menu, just because they are aware that those... read more

Last time I went to Le Bouchon both food and service was very bad. The waitress had no idea what the specials were and had to go back and forth to the kitchen 3 times to clarify what we could order and what we couldn't. The restaurant was almost completely empty and the owners was sitting at the bar, smoking.... More

I do not understand the recent negative comments as they are completely contrary to our recent experience. We were standing on the pavement looking at the menu before the establishment was due to open. We were spotted and invited in for a complimentary drink before the kitchen was open. The welcome was warm and sincere. If you are among the... More

Davide and Nathallie welcomed us with a sparkling wine and a amuse bouch. The food was excellent and Davide even gave us his recommendation. The duck was delicious, served with salad and potatoes AND they even had a very good cheese board. I had the trio of desserts with coffee, fabulous. We went back for another meal when we returned...

I live in Saigon and up until a year ago used to eat here 2 or 3 times a week. This was a gem, but they changed managers several times with declining results each time. A year gaving padded, last nite I decided to go back and give it another try -- even though prior experiences had been poor. I... More

We were quite excited to check out some french food while in Saigon and read about Bouchon in another traveler's blog. We were terribly unimpressed with almost all of the food and are pretty sure we can trace my husband's food poisoning back to this meal. He ordered the beef tenderloin medium rare and it came out completely rare. We... More

Wow, it was so good I went back the very next night, I had the best time, the best people, the best food, the best wine. Go there or you will regret. I would go back to Saigon just to go there and hang out, thanks for such a great time.

A friend and I dropped in for a drink after dinner at another restaurant. It was a busy Friday night and the bar was full so the waitress kindly offered us a small table. After a glass of wine, I then decided to order coffee and dessert for the two of us. I asked for the menu but the owner... More

The service and food offered is so below par. Most of the food on the menu were not available and it takes forever to be served. Try the food across the street, Le Jardin. So much superior and worth every penny.

A cosy bistro with good cassoulet and tartiflette - a table was found for us despite not having a booking. The wine list is fine and the service was excellent. Presumably from recent reviews this has not been everyone's experience - however we will be heading back for dinner before we leave HCM.
