Some unusual and very tasty dishes. Great bar to eat at and very personable bartender. Crowded but fun.

This restaurant is an adjunct to the Union League Cafe in New Haven, for many years one of the top restaurants in the state. It is small, but the service and attention to detail are extremely high, and the food is excellent. I was on the fence about the fifth star as the restaurant is arguably that good. Trust me,...

Everytime I go to BB I have an amazing dining experience. The food, drinks and hospitality are extraordinary! I love eating at the bar and chatting with the creative and fun bartenders!! They always have great recommendations! I also love that BB has seasonal items on their menu. This is truly a diamond in my book!!

We went to Bar Bouchee having been recommended by our inn keeper. We quite honestly did not know what to expect but we were not disappointed. As we had not booked we were given seats at the bar and from the moment we were seated we were given expert attention by the Barman. Having ordered a nice wine we had... More

The bartender was great, the maitre'd is really French (by birth), my wife liked the escargot and my gratin dauphinoise (scalloped potatoes) was excellent. We will go back and sample some entrees and other lighter fare.

Everything is always amazing. Whether is be a special or something from the menu. Pricey but worthwhile. We find this to be our place on holidays and special occasions.

My partner and I have eaten there several times. The wait staff is very attentive. The tables are very close together and in the main dining room, they have to pull the table out in order for a diner to scoot onto the bench seating. I particularly enjoyed the leaf lettuce salad, the escargot and any entree that I select... More

The place is always crowded so be sure to make reservations. If a table is not available. there may be room at the bar but this also fills up quickly. I had the hanger steak which was served in an amazing sauce. The preoblem with the desserts was the difficulty in choosing

This is a very comfortable bistro-like eatery. The wine selection and menu are not overwhelming and it is great for a light dinner and glass of wine. Staff is friendly and helpful. Sometimes a bit noisey and can become crowded but generally a comfortable evening.

Thank Robert S
