Come expecting to wait and you won't be disappointed. Successful restaurants are like that. Take a few minutes and wander the neighborhood. The street hosts many trendy little boutiques which provide some decent window shopping. Once seated, the service is excellent and the food arrived quite quickly. My wife enjoyed the mussels and my brother inhaled the bouillabaisse. I loved... More

Both my husband and I had the mussels special, which is offered Monday-Wednesday. There are a variety of sauces one may try, and this is an all you can eat special. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

Bouchon doesn't accept reservations. At 7 pm on a Tuesday night we were told that the wait will be 45-50 minutes. We gave our phone number to the hostess and walked around the area. Then the rain hit! After 45 minutes we went back and inquired as to when we are going to be seated. We were told that because... More

Some average some very good. The pork was nicely done the mussels were fine. Dessert and salads passable. I can't worn people away but I'd enquire closely. I'm sure there's a very good meal in there. Service was good.

We went into this restaurant with high hopes - based both on the personal recommendation that sent us there and on the Trip Advisor reviews. The lamb and the rabbit were each OK. The peach melba dessert was not at all as described in the menu. The peaches were supposed to be grilled and they tasted "just out of the... More

We were visiting some friends in Asheville, and they recommended this restaurant. What a charming little place, and it was packed on a Monday night, but we were still able to get a table for five. This little gem was a very pleasant surprise. The food was all wonderful, from the salads to the entrée, no room for dessert. Wine... More

There was a bit of a wait when I visited in June BUT the wait is well worth it, I was seated outside in a back little "alleyway" which was absolutely wonderful. It was peaceful, quiet (especially compared to the noise and bustle of the indoor dining area), and comfortable (temperature-wise). Having never been to Paris, I can only imagine... More

After a long drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway including hiking, my wife & I arrived late into town on a Thursday evening; they seated us at 9:15 although they close at 9:30 & were very welcoming. We sat in the back outdoor portion of the restaurant designed like a street in France ( very romantic); the Trout Almondine &... More

The food ranged from average to very good. The escargot was good but lacked enough garlic to want you to ask for more bread. The steak au poivre was tender and very tasty with a perfect sauce. The fish soup lacked interest and the thyme chicken was so uninspiring that it was returned. The crab avocado was great as was... More

I love Bouchon. I don't even really like French food, and honestly the food is not what I love the most about this place. The atmosphere is so fantastic. It's conducive to a good time. Service is always good and I know that these guys are supporters of local businesses and local growers, which I also love. The owner makes... More
