We were happy to revisit this restaurant from our honeymoon five years ago. The pommes frites were still great (of course!), but otherwise the food was not as delicious as we remember (salmon a bit salty). Excellent service though.

Come to Bouchon for an excellent meal, wonderful service and great wines. We enjoyed a fine trout dish, a delicious steak, and an amazing chicken. Plus white and red wines, a lemony dessert and a chocolate dessert made for a great evening. Priced accordingly.

Bouchon is always a great choice. It is one of Thomas Keller’s restaurant in Napa. The food is excellent, the staff is great and the wine list will wonderful! A must go, but reserve in advance!

Came here for a late lunch between tastings. Line for the bakery was down the street, for obvious reasons. Glad we had reservations, because the place was packed. Attentive staff took great care of us. Both of us had the steak with shoestring fries and...More

I booked about a month in advance through OpenTable. I did look at this restaurant on OpenTable a few minutes ago and it looks as though you can't book for this restaurant this far in advance. Can only suggest checking... More

Lunch or early dinner would be good if they are able to stay in their seats. Not a place for kids to be running around.

Pricey but worth it. Another option is going to The Bouchon Bakery next door, for delicious bread and delicatessen, not that expensive (not cheap either) and everything is to go.
