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

My wife and I have been visiting Bar Bouchee since it opened in Madison Ct. There was never any reason for complaint, in fact it had become one of our favorite go-to spots for celebrating an occasion or just when we wanted a delicious bistro style dinner. Last year I gave the restaurant five stars, In my return visits the... More

Recently heard of Bar Bouchee in Madison, CT. Decided to go try something new. Was I impressed? Absolutely. Went on a Saturday night, and although we did not have reservations, found seats at the bar immediately. Hostess was great. Bartender was wonderful, attentive and adorable. Food was fabulous, drinks were fabulous although had way more than the norm because we... More

The menu is inventive and really splendid. Very French. Ambiance is tops as is the staff. We always arrive early to get our desired seats. It is a small place, very popular so fills up fast.

It's always comforting to hear a heavy accent when making a reservation. It's usually a good sign that the food will be authentic. That is very true for Bar Bouchée. I had high expectations going in and I can say they were meet with the exception of one. Too much food. I dislike leaving a restaurant feeling stuffed and/or having... More

We are world traveled foodies from Manhattan. My husband grew up in Madison. Though we always loved the town, the culinary arts were lacking to put it mildly--- until now. Last night we ate at Bar Bouchee and my husband exclaimed, "Pinch me. Am I in Madison?" The sauce on the escargot was delicious. The duck was cooked perfectly (crispy... More
