I wanted something different so checked the reviews on Trip Advisor. Checked the menu on-line and decided to give this place a chance. Wow. What a perfect find! We arrived early and had a drink in the wonderful... More

My husband & I recently returned from a lovely vacation in Newport, RI. We love to eat good food and were rewarded by a wonderful experience at Restaurant Bouchard. It's already #1 with trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. We did not have a reservation and were happy to accept a last minute very small table on the sidewalk patio.... More

We had not eaten here in a few years, and decided to go again last Saturday evening when we had an excellent meal and experience. The food and service were great and the chef's owner even took the time to tell us all about their expansion - opening another less formal restaurant right next door. We came early for our... More

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....

Reservations: Made by phone; staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Service: Impeccable. Attentive, polished, helpful. Food: The four of us all enjoyed every bite. We had Dover sole, filet mignon, salmon salad, and pork; also enjoyed Grand Marnier souffle and vanilla mousse for dessert. Delightful. Ambiance: We were seated next to the fireplace and enjoyed the pretty... More

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.
