This was our second visit, and just as amazing and satisfying as the first. The menu is small but reflective of the care that goes into the food preparation and presentation. The wine list is representative of good choices suitable for every dish on the menu. The duck breast with coffee ground crust is a bit of a surprise item,... More

Me and my fiancé decided to take a trip to Newport Rhode Island. Once we arrived, I investigated what some of the more "romantic" restaurants are in the area. Thanks to Trip advisor, I learned that this was the #1 restaurant in newport. Natuallry I had to try it. Me and my fiancé absolutely loved it. The food was un-real.... More

The food and service here is first rate and excellent. One of my favorite restaurants! If you have ever been to Paris France, Bouchard will take you back in time. The French Continental Food is excellent. Small portions however great quality and preparation. Superb wine list and fantastic desserts made fresh daily. Order the souffle before your meal as it...

We cannot say enough positive adjectives about the delicious food we enjoyed at this restaurant. If you want the best meal in Newport, visit this establishment. The staff was excellent too.

This is an excellent restaurant and agree with the high ratings of most Tripadvisor reviewers. The only reason I did not give it full stars is that the ambiance is good, but not great, and I had a dish that was a bit dry---although still very good, it wasn't perfect. This was a few months ago so I can't remember... More

We picked restaurant Bouchard to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed! The service was outstanding - even down to the salted butter for the beautifully warm rolls! The food was exquisitely presented and the flavors were amazing! It was definitely one of the best meals we have ever had. But the best part of the dining... More

The food and service at Restaurant Bouchard was excellend. Waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. Cocktails and appetizer (tuna tartare) were excellent. Had the Dover sole and coffee crusted duck breast, both were delish. Overall experience was very good. No view to speak of however, if you get the opportunity to sit next to a window. And the lights at... More

The French term "savoir faire" equates closely with several terms we use in English, including suavity, finesse, sophistication, poise, aplomb, adroitness, polish, style, and smoothness. The wait staff at the Bouchard epitomizes savoir faire. Our waiter and, especially, the beautiful and charismatic Carmen, who is the ultimate in poise and aplomb, made our meal memorable and charming by their solicitous... More

My husband picked the restaurant because of it's ratings on Trip Advisor and I'm happy to write that our fellow Trip Advisor travelers were dead on! The restaurant is set in a historic building in the heart of Newport's entertainment district which gave us the chance to walk to the place. The restaurant is charming and the service was very...
