Cramped in like sardines, you feel that you are a part of the conversation of the table 18 inches away from you. Not so bad, as the couple next to us overheard our conversation, which led to a conversation with them. So you get to meet new people. Here is the bottom line - from what we sampled... read more

Bar Bouchee is a French restaurant in Madison, Connecticut. The menu is small, but with delicious offerings. We dined outside. The area is small, so guest are close together, where conversations/romantic moments aren't private. The chefs can prepare your meals to meet dietary restrictions, with little or no noticeable difference in appearance or taste! There is a selection of wines... More

We've been to Bar Bouchée several times, and enjoyed it thoroughly each time. We've always sat at the bar and enjoyed the atmosphere there, and Fernando, the bartender, was ready each time with a fresh concoction to try if you're interested. The Croque Monsieur is absolutely delicious, and the entire menu features a great variety of items. I almost hate... More

We enjoyed our meal at the Bar Bouchee. We walked from our Inn, The Tidewater. Authentic options. A bit crowded and noisy but fun! Our waitress, Susan (we think), was amazingly sweet and attentive to my gluten free needs as I have celiac. We had the steak tartare appetizer. It was different from what we have had. It was a...

This small restaurant, 9 indoor tables, on a side street is a gem. We shared the vegetable salad...the French make the best salads always! The trout was delicious served with yellow potatoes, capers and greens in a delicate sauce. Our friends had scallops and sea bass....we all had wonderful meals. This was our first visit but our friends have been... More
