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

My husband and I and another couple went to Bouchard to celebrate our spouses' birthdays. Our experience was wonderful from start to finish. The service was impeccable and our dinners were excellent. I had lobster bisque and the coffee crusted duck and both were outstanding. 2 others had beef tenderloin that they cut with a fork and the 4th person... More

We ate at Bouchard on a rainy Saturday evening. Being well traveled, we were amazed at the meal & service. The food was prepared perfectly. The pace of service and great attention without being overbearing was not unnoticed. The wine selection was excellent. Considering the quality of food, atmosphere and service the total bill was reasonable. If you are in... More

Bouchard has expanded its offerings to three different venues: celebrity chef kitchen, outdoor bar and formal dining room. We made reservations in the formal dining room where we enjoyed an incredible meal, wine and souffle! It was a wonderful dining experience. If we had been in Newport another night we would have tried the more casual celebrity chef dining which... More

We were told to visit Bouchard when in Newport, it got a great rec. We arrived, only to be standing at the Hostess table for 5 min. I walked over to a blond girl who saw us, but was working the bar and asked if there was a hostess she replied rudely," of course! she's busy" needless to say, we... More

It was my 33rd wedding anniversary, and we saw that it was rated #1, in Newport. Well it was outstanding. I've eaten at highly rated French restaurants in Manhattan and I think they try to out weird your palate. Bouchard's menu is full of variety without Calves brains on the menu. I started with the lobster and asparagus and my... More

Whenever I read about a great place, I like to see what the terrible reviews have to say. Bouchard is a wonderful place to eat and has truly memorable dishes, cocktails wine and service. But here's a heads up. DON'T come with your kids, DON'T request a high chair, DON'T ask for a kids menu. Also DON'T come in in... More

Excellent meal, service and atmosphere. Bouchards is a delightful find. It was quiet and intimate and we were given the best service here out of all the places we visited while in Newport.
