Charming owner greeted us. Set expectations of seating time, and we went to the bar for an aperitif. Seated comfortably and our knowledgeable and efficient waiter answered our questions and took our order. We staged starters - two, then one to split - and then entrees. Each met or exceeded expectations. Split desert and left satiated and cheerful. Great wine... More

The meal and the service were great. My only complaint is waiting 90 minutes after being told it would be 45. My guess is they're busy often enough that they could be better at estimating. But the waiter, his recommendations, and the food (steak au poivre, chicken cordon bleu, and African queen dessert) were great.

The menu is authentic, casual French cuisine, but it was nothing to write home about. I appreciated their wine selection and enjoyed that the menu was authentically done, but it was just ok. I lived in France for a short while so maybe I was just spoiled but it could have been better. My chicken cordon bleu was kind of... More

This was a bit of a disappointment. We were looking forward to our first dinner at Bouchon based on TA reviews. The place was packed on a Monday night. We had great wine while we waited for a table and enjoyed chatting with the bartender. My wife had muscles in garlic wine sauce and I selected the duck with orange... More

First of all, they have all-you-can-eat mussels on Monday night. Second, they have $5.00 off their house bottle of wine. This made the bottle of good red table wine $15.00. Third, service was fabulous and the food outstanding. We got there early and had to wait about 30 minutes but the hostesses were nice and quoted us the approximate wait... More

Bouchon is a definite must do while in Asheville! The food is amazing. The service was excellent. The owner stopped by our table and chatted with us for awhile. A pure delight!

This 12-table restaurant doesn't take reservations, but they will hold your spot in line if you decide to go for a drink block down at the Lexington Avenue Brewery (LAB). They were out of their famous mussels on a sunday night, which was a real bummer for us. We had the roasted beet salad - delicious, and french onion soup... More

Being an unashamed francophile and a former resident of Paris, I have a love and very high standard for French food. Bouchon met them both perfectly. I loved walking up to see people gathered on the front steps, glasses of red wine in hand. The smell of garlic and butter wafted out of the intimate dining room. We sat at... More

Excellent food and great service. Our server was super friendly and helped us through the menu notwithstanding it being quite busy that night. We ordered five plates to share and everything was delicious - as our server assured us it would be. The mussels were great, as other reviewers note: served piping hot and with very few, if any, unopened... More

Bouchon is a bit of New Orleans in the Appalachians. If weather permits sit outside, it is cozy and adds to the meal. The menu is not large and relies on what is local and fresh. It leans towards rustic French with a twist of Southern American thrown in for spice. The classic Salad du Grand Pere was delightful and... More
