Finest Food with Southern Charm

We sat in the courtyard with genuine European feeling to it. All the food was fabulously prepared with the freshest ingredients. I was hesitant to try a "French" restaurant in North Carolina but I highly recommend!

One of my favorite restaurants. Having dinner there is like a quick trip to Europe. Wait staff is always attentive enough without bothering you and they know their offerings. One warning ...it can be noisy like any small space and they don't take reservations. However, you can have a drink while you wait and /or go around to the crepe... More

Very friendly staff and cozy setting in beautiful part of downtown. Food was very good. This is a nice place for a higher end meal - if its nice, try for a lovely terrace seat.

Delicious food, great service! Nice ambiance. I highly recommend the creme brule flight to share or to keep all to yourself.

Recommended by a server at the Grove Park Inn, Bouchon lived up to his high praise. All-you-care-to-eat mussels done several ways in tasty broth with a side of outstanding french fries. Not keen on the dipping sauce for the latter - good old ketchup was a better pairing. Superb crisp white wine and the perfect chewy baguette made Bouchon a... More

This is a great place for dinner in Asheville, It looks and feels like I would imagine a French bistro to be -- quaint, old world charm and very inviting. They offer an excellent menu with lots of selections, all stated in French and English on the menu. My husband ordered the mussels which he was disappointed with. They were... More

Every time we are in Asheville we are thinking of going to an other restaurant but end up at Le Bouchon. Nothing wrong with that because the food is every time excellent. This time we were served by the daughter of the owner, Fuller. She was a great server, and of course she spoke French which gave a special twist... More

Enjoyed an Asheville NC favorite again the other night with my husband. We put our names in for a table and ventured into the patio to have a drink. We ordered a bottle of the Dentelle Rose, 2013 a combination of Grenache and Caregnan grapes for $27.00 a bottle. A nice Rose and perfect for the humid weather. Before we... More

We received recommendations to try Bouchon from a friend. This was one of the best recommendations during our visit. We were warned about the wait time and to pack our patience. Not a problem for us. We made reservations and when we arrived, we checked in and kindly went upstairs to their sister restaurant to have cocktails until the hostess... More

This place had some awesome French dishes with a southern flair. Definitely get the herbed French fries with the red pepper aioli! So good!
