Came here to celebrate a wonderful weekend and could not have been happier. Max was very attentive and quite knowledgeable. He was able to help guide our choices and agreed with our wine selection. He was never too far away, but did not hover. The cold pate du chef was amazing and the hot lobster asparagus puff delicious. The cleansing... More

As a Newport resident we generally get to Bouchard a few times each year and it is always excellent. The Dover sole is wonderful and Bouchard is the only restaurant we know of in the area that regularly has it. The service is exemplary and the wine list is excellent and well priced. It is also the one restaurant we... More

This was a lovely experience for my husband's birthday. The food was traditional but there were interesting twists to keep it from being the "same old". A highlight was a scallop ravioli appetizer special in a curry beurre blanc sauce. We loved the wine, and if you go here definitely order the souffle! We also enjoyed the small dessert coffee...

we chose this restaurant based upon the trip advisor reviews and we're not disappointed. Our server was excellent and the food was delicious. Make sure you order the soufflé for dessert as it was outstanding. Yes it was alittle pricey but worth it.

We visited Bouchard on the occasion of my wife's 40th birthday. I chose Bouchard after doing some internet research and speaking with an associate of mine, a Newport resident, who highly recommended this restaurant. Arriving at the restaurant, we were warmly welcomed and brought to a table near a window in the rear of the restaurant. For appetizers, we ordered... More

Listed as #1 restaurant in Newport, we had high expectations. Those expectations were met as the menu was interesting, the service utterly professional, the food delicious and the value most acceptable.

No need to recount what others have said already. This restaurant is outstanding; the service, the food, pricey for sure, but understandable. Lobster bisque creamier and better flavor than most. My wife had rack of lamb which was extremely tender; I had Dover sole which was the real thing with a superb sauce. Dessert souffle very nice. And . .... More

Ate here with my husband on a trip from Scotland. The food was delicious and the service outstanding. A little pricey but worth a visit for a special occasion or treat.

My family of six dined in the formal dining room for my mother's birthday. Everything from booking the reservation (easy and we had a wonderful table reserved) to the extensive crowd-pleasing meal (something for everyone, actually many things for everyone) to the impeccable service created a very memorable birthday experience for Mom and the family. My meal of lobster puff... More

We just walked in, the outside wasn't impressive but we had heard it was good. The restaurant was booked after Labor Day and on a Monday night. They conceded a table after I said we would eat early. The wine list was good but I wanted a special wine so they came out with the "other" wine list. The food... More
