Very small but cozy restaurant. Chef within 50 feet of every table. Awesome food. Great service. Cheese plate is insane. Wine selection great. If you do not like sitting super close to others, you will probably not like it here. Trust me, it's worth it!

A first-time dinner at Le Bouchon after having two lunches here, and we're already looking to another return visit. Very well-prepared French classics in an understated, casual setting with a few tables on the sidewalk for warmer weather. We began with a delicate pastry filled with mixed mushrooms and snails in garlic butter; hearty cassoulet and roast duck as entrees... More

Although we've dined (and enjoyed) dinner here several times, this was our first lunchtime experience at Le Bouchon. We both had the Lyonnais French Onion soup, which was singularly excellent. My wife enjoyed the chicken breast with cream sauce, and I had a lunch special of porc (served over a very flavorful pasta). Both were very good. We finished with... More

We were expecting to be "wowed" by this restaurant, based on the reviews. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. Food was good, but not great. Atmosphere was not intimate, as we thought it might be. It is more like a bistro rather than a romantic french restaurant. The Coquille St Jaques was very good, but entrees were just average. For dessert, the... More

I, too, am disappointed that you weren't "wowed" by your experience here. I'm curious — which main courses did you order? A lot of detailed thought goes into all of the dishes on our menu, and any specific feedback that you have is always appreciated. As far as our atmosphere, we want everyone to feel welcome in our unpretentious setting.... More

I've been to Paris many times and Le Bouchon could be found on any fashionable street there. Every dish served has been prepared with the typical love and care of the French. Sample any entree and enjoy each bite of pure gustatory delight. I love this place. Good wine selection, good, but small dessert offerings. Try the Coquille St Jacques... More
