From the good wine selection, friendly bartender and wait staff, we enjoyed our recent dinner at Bouchon very much. I had the escargot as a starter, prepared in the traditional manner and my husband had a salad. For the main course, I enjoyed the lobster ravioli while my husband enjoyed the chocolate/orange flavors of the duck. Great atmosphere in a... More

I chose Bouchon for one of the nicer dinners on our honeymoon. It definitely sticks to the roots of French cuisine with dishes that are simple, rich, decadent, and sometimes unexpected. The split pea soup was simple but delicious. For my entree I chose the Confit d’Automne, a chicken confit served atop pumpkin ravioli with sage cream sauce, topped with... More

This place was recommended by the ladies at Chevron Beads and the were 100% right! Great Service, even better food! Could not decide between two of the choices so they offered to combine them for me. OMG it was fantastic! Will be back!

It was a wet and cool Sunday night. As we walked the street, looking like accidental tourists, a gentlemen asked if we needed help. We were looking for a dinner place after a long day of driving in the rain. He recommended Bouchon as it was a short walk. We found Bouchon, walked in and while it was busy, we... More

We had a wonderful dinner after arriving early since this restaurant does not take reservations. The wait staff were friendly and very helpful. We found both the food and the presentation to be extremely well done.

As frequent visitors to France, my husband and I decided to visit Bouchon for a full meal. We had sat at the bar in early-January to have a bottle of vin rouge and frites, but this time we wanted to have the full experience. Knowing that Bouchon did not take reservations and that the restaurant is not that big, we... More

Get there early and watch for the days when Bouchon has the all you can eat mussels. They have 4 different preparations that will leave your taste buds happy.

Who would have thought such a special restaurant with a terrific and authentic French menu would happen in Asheville! By coincidence we went on a Monday night and found the all you can eat mussels . . . I enjoyed them as an appetizer while my wife had the escargot . . . both were terrific, although the escargot would... More

My husband and I recently dined here. We had heard that they do not take reservations so we decided to arrive a few minutes early to ensure a seamless in and out experience. They open at 5:30pm and not a minute sooner. There is a very narrow alcove out front to wait which accommodates four or so people and I... More
