Booked in advanced.based on the positive reviews of Trip Advisor posters. There is a dress code here.- "Casual Business" Service first rate. Food very good. This may be the most expensive meal you are going to have in Newport, but it was good. It is a limited menu so make sure they have something you like.

Restaurant Bouchard is an excellent French Restaurant on Thames Street in Newport. We at here last summer, so it was our second time here, and it did not disappoint. The lobster is out of this world. And the bartender makes a mean Hendrick's martini....

We called to get a reservation at 5 pm the day of since I had asked to be put on a wait list and was never called. There were open tables when we got there but for some reason were told that the restaurant was booked. The food was very good and the service was nice. The restaurant itself was... More

My wife and I ate here July 6th, our last night in Newport during a 6 night stay. Restaurant Bouchard was absolutely the best meal we have experienced in a long, long time. The food was excellently prepared and the service by Max was old school professional. Max is highly professional and comes from the European school of service. Our... More

The best meal of the year. Our waiter Max had great suggestions. The restuffed lobster is a must! We will be back every time we are in Newport.

Wonderful French food, excellent staff, beautiful dining area. What more needs to be said? The kitchen staff was very accommodating to my vegetarian friend. I try to eat at Bouchard's at least once a year (more often if I could afford it). I've always have been impressed with the food and dining experience.

My wife and I dined at Restaurant Bouchard a few days ago and thoroughly enjoyed the entrees, service, and ambiance. We booked the restaurant after seeing it ranked #1 on TripAdvisor and definitely were not disappointed. The Dover Sole I had was tasty and delicious and my wife's Stuffed Lobster was equally good. They had a great drink menu and... More

This restaurant has great French food and immaculate service. However, the interior design feels a bit dated, but if you love great classy French food this is one of the best in Newport.
