Wonderful surprise of a restaurant in Newport. Authentic, delicious menu. Many special touches. Small and intimate. A special treat in busy and at times loud Newport. Wonderful wine list, and Veuve by the glass. Wonderful for Champagne lovers who don't want to drink an entire bottle.

We were visiting my cousins in Newport and they told us that we would be going to Bouchard's for dinner on Sunday night. I know that this is one of their favorite restaurants. The food is French and the setting was lovely: white tablecloths and napkins, soft lighting. There was a little bit of misunderstanding about the parking. My cousin... More

The restaurant is small and elegant and the service was top notch. The food was even better. I had the duck and my sister had the cod which was a special. Also they have an extensive wine list. All told it was a lovely experience.

The staff here is excellent, attentive, and bends over backward to make your evening memorable. My wife had an appetizer of asparagus and scallops she is still talking about followed by an entree of Fluke that she said was excellent. I, on the other hand wanted their stuffed Lobster, but found that it had a Fish Stock base, I am... More

Had the pleasure of dining at Bouchards this month. What a wonderful experience! Food was over the top. Tuna tartare started was some of the best I've had. Filet dish (traditional) was outstanding and you could cut it with the butter knife. Presentations were wonderful as well. The captain (Max) suggested a cleansing salad between courses. Light and wonderful beet... More

This restaurant is amoung our top twenty on the east coast. Probably the best in Newport.The food is delicious. The menu has classic dishes and wonderful specials. The restaurant has a fantistic, yet, expensive wine list. However, if you have a medium knowledge of wine you can have a fantastic pairing. I highly recommend Cafe Bouchard. They have a great...

We dined at Restaurant Bouchard and enjoyed every morsel. We started with a couple of their signature cocktails and took our time deciding on our choices for dinner. We never felt rushed during the entire evening and the ambiance of the restaurant is very lovely. I enjoyed the tomato tart for an appetizer and the duck breast encrusted with coffee... More

My wife took me to Bouchard’s for my birthday. We read the reviews and spoke to several people upon our arrival in Newport. I must say that dinner was one of the best we ever had. Max was our server and he could not do enough for us. Max paired two wonderful wines with our dinners! He was a delight... More

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
