We live in Michigan and on our way to the Outer Banks we decided to visit some good friends in Asheville. Our friends go to Bouchon all the time and we wanted to see it for ourselves. We were not disappointed. The menu is entirely French, my wife had the pâté and loved it, I went for the escargot and... More

This is a no reservation restaurant with a bar area, indoor, and covered outdoor seating. At check in you can give them your cell phone number so they can call you when your table is ready. This allows you the opportunity to walk around some of the neighboring shops. Atmosphere: The restaurant itself is long and narrow with the kitchen... More

My parents go to Bouchon regularly and took my husband and I there while we were visiting them in Ashevill recently. The restaurant is on the small side and has a casual atmosphere--easy to drop in if you've been shopping in Asheville without feeling like you need to freshen up or dress up. The menu had a great selection of... More

Ended up coming here while visiting Asheville for dinner one night. One of the couple had chosen this restaurant and it sounded like it would be great. We were so disappointed with the result. I chose the quiche and maybe that was my fault for choosing that. I could not even finish it. There was no flavor and it was... More

While strolling with our family in downtown Asheville for the first time today (a Friday), we asked some locals in shops about their favorite restaurants in town. Bouchon was at the top of the list. I went there myself to check it out early in the afternoon while it was still empty, talked to an employee, previewed the menu, and... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. The atmosphere is fun, not at all stuffy. Warm greetings by the owner and friendly staff both times we visited (a Monday and a Thursday). Bartender remembered our wine choices from earlier visit! Small restaurant with additional seating on sidewalk and back patio. We chose inside, lots to see and appreciate.... More

We went to Asheville for the beer tasting and then we had dinner at Bouchon. It was great. We had Pate for an appetizer and also the Sauter scallops. For the main course we had chicken cordon bleu and Boeuf Borgingnon. We touched it off with a Rose' from Provence. The food was good, service was good and with a... More

If the weather is good, make sure you reserve in the outdoor section. It is absolutely charming. The food was delicious. i really felt that I was in a bistro in Paris or the countryside. They even were able to serve my six year old grandaughter. She said, "Let's come back here, Grandma. This from a child who is not... More

This is a small, quaint restaurant in the heart of Asheville on Lexington. My wife and I wanted to eat here forever, and finally went to eat dinner. We got there at 7 and we waited until 9pm to get a table. It was well worth it! I have had what we all know as Chicken Cordon Blue, but I... More

We visited Bouchon after personal and Tripadvisor recommendations. The food was delicious indeed! One thing I love about French food are the delicious sauces, and the rich wine sauce with mushrooms served over our lamb was wonderful! The vegetables were crisp and fresh, providing a healthy side dish. The restaurant is always busy and noisy, but after mentioning that it... More
