Great food, must try.... I was so sad that I was too full for dessert

My daughter and I had dinner here, we tried their famous french fries of course (wish these were available everywhere) I had the fish chef special (well worth every bite, & every calorie!) My daughter had the lamb meatballs & noodles (sorry I dont remember what the names of our dishes were) but Im... read more

On the recommendation of a friend, we ate at Bouchon and by happenstance it was an "all you can eat" mussels night (available M, T, & W). Yum. Belgium-style preparation, but better than in Belgium and that's not an exaggeration. Even the accompanying "frites" were better. The main room was a bit dark and stuffy, so we waited for a... More

Michel never disappoints. We returned here as we often do for a date night - and it was amazing as usual. We sat outside in the beautiful courtyard that reminds you of a small European alley. The steak au poivre was so delicious my husband wolfed it down and we enjoyed the cheese and chutney plate. On Monday-Wednesday they have... More

I know it's difficult to get seated and we too had to wait 30 minutes. But it was worth it. We went with our dog so we were seated on the back patio which was much less hectic than inside. You almost feel like you're sitting at an outdoor cafe in France. We were there on a Wednesday evening as... More

You may have to wait even on a weeknight because this restaurant is great. You have to start with the frites and the rouille. You won't regret it. Escargots are very rich. We had crawfish ravioli and the turkey. They were both very well prepared. We'll definitely return on our next visit. Outdoor seating area a huge plus!

I recently ate at Bouchon with 4 friends. We queued up at 8:30, the wait was 35-45 min, so we wandered down the street (it was Friday, so the 'downtown after 5' festival was on, which was excellent). They rang us when our table was ready. It was very HOT inside the restaurant, so I was relieved that we were... More

We were meeting some family for dinner that how no idea what to expect. I had dined here before and just loved it. This trip did not disappoint. The farm fresh food, excellent chef, the service, the atmosphere, it is just a wonderful experience. It is cramped seating, but you forget about that rather quickly when the food comes out.... More

We stopped in for drinks and appetizers. Sat at the bar with a view outside of the street. Chris the bartender was a gem and very attentive and welcoming to all her customers. Cocktails were delicious. Appetizers were very tasty. Nice outdoor patio. We'll definitely return for a meal.

We have been going here for a long time.We love the atmosphere,staff and the food. We have been disappointed in the mussels because they are so big.Hope they go back to serving the smaller ones.

The crepes are pretty good, but there's not a lot of variety. Service isn't that great and the prices are pretty steep for what you actually get.
