This dinner was $250 for two people and worth every penny. We had oysters, two specials, a cocktail (which was the only 'meh' item) and two glasses of Bordeaux (can't remember which ones, but incredible). Amazing flavours, great service. Definitely the most unique eating experience...in Kelowna and one of the few places that I would say you get value for what you pay for. Their creme burly is to die for!!More

Had an amazing time dining here at Bouchons. The food is unreal, the escargot and the rack of lamb is amazing. Definitely worth checking out. The service was great too, Joffrey was amazing. Will definitely be back again!

Only by occosion we got to Bouchon! We booked a table in the neighborhood which did not get free at the agreed time. Therefore we looked aside and saw some tables getting free: a good reason to ask for one! We started with the recommendation...of a phantastic patron: a nice sparking wine to start with. Then Foie gras with a nice Sancerre: Phantasitically Followed by an excellent Bouillabaisse: absolutely awesome! The finals were profiteroles! Superb! A good reason to come back!More

This restaurant is supposed to be one of the best in Kelowna. It is expensive with a limited menu. I had the rack of lamb with ratatouille. The lamb was very good, but there was very little ratatouille, so not enough to eat. My husband...had the duck. It looked like duck stew in pork'n'beans! Fine restaurants usually don't serve beans as your side. Server was pleasant, but we both left hungry. The food was very disappointing. I am afraid I can not recommend this restaurant.More

Hello Judith, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor. It is unfortunate to read that your experience was less than perfect. We pride ourselves on providing both exceptional French cuisine as well as extraordinary service. We are happy to hear...More

We visited last night (27th) and were generally disappointed. Service was good though the server placed the plate wrongly and took away a table knife that was required for vegetables, instead I used the fish knife to cut. The Sable fish was prepared well but...the rest of the plate ordinary including a questionable serving of tapinade which was completely overpowering. Onion soup was leaning towards bland and the salmon appetizer though generous was not flavourful. Pricing is too high. This restaurant is running on pretention and past successes, definitely not as good as it used to be.More

I believe it is one of the best fine dining venues in Kelowna. Authentic French bistro athmosphere in the middle of downtown, Beatrice warm greetings and Clemance knowledgable service- what else can you ask to start the evening. Food menu with exellent choices and long...wine list would not dissappoint any client. Bouchons became our favorite place in Kelowna. Thank you chef Stephane and whole team!More

A Fantastic dinner out...Such a delight. Great service by our server Nicole. She was so attentive, informative about the specials for the evening, which I indulged in, being the fresh oysters from PEI. We enjoyed a bottle of French Gewurztraminer Pfaff, then escargots, scallops and...prawns ending with their assiette cheese plate and port taster to cap off the evening. A splendid and most enjoyable evening. Kudos to the chef and Nicole for the great evening. Salute. A Must visit when in KelownaMore

Beatrice was kind enough to squeeze us in on the 10th of Sept for a 8:30 sitting. We were celebrating our sons and daughter In laws wedding planning day in preparation for a October wedding. Had the truffle scallops. Exquisite. Best scallops I have had...in 8 countries including Michelin experiences. The rest of the clan had the nightly special salmon and veal dish. Both were excellent. Well done Stephan. Our culinary experience here never fails to disappoint.More

We have always eaten at Bouchons whilst visiting Kelowna, and had a first class experience every time in the past. This is the first time with the new owners and never again. The server was arrogant and incompetent. The meals were badly prepared, had poor...quality ingredients which were tasteless and overpriced. Although the owner apologized for the quality of the food saying it was a problem to find kitchen staff, the server took off his mask and barred our exit to demand a better tip. Simply astonishing. Avoid this place.More
