Have dined here half a dozen times. Food is interesting and wonderful. Staff is friendly and service is great. A place to take someone special too.

The food is never disappointing. It's a small bistro, I love going for lunch with a girlfriend or great client spot for lunch or dinner. Very fairly priced. Don't expect quick service, it's as if you were in Paris, so the wait is worth it. Just go in and relax and let them even, if you like, make a suggestion... More

In an effort to enjoy a French-themed anniversary celebration, we made a reservation at Le Bouchon, a bistro here in PDX that we'd visited a couple of times over the years but tended to overlook when we were thinking of places to enjoy a nice meal. Well, after the fine meal we had there the other night, we are hoping... More

We dined on a quiet Sunday evening. We had the undivided attention of both the wait staff and the chef. Some search engines show the restaurant is closed on Sunday's but its open. We started with a celebratory glass of champagne to set the correct tone. For appetizers we had smoked salmon with toast points, cappers, sour cream and finely... More

Le Bouchon has been here for 18 years, but we had never eaten at it! It's very small and reminiscent of a small neighborhood Parisian restaurant. The waitress was extremely attentive and there were quite a few specials to go along with a diverse menu. We shared a pork & chicken pate that was delicate and flavorful, a vibrant beet... More

Dined here on a business trip. The menu, tho' limited, has many nice choices. Their lobster bisque tasted good--if less creamy than expected. The duck confit tasted as great as it's aroma promised and the chocolate souffle' was exceptionally delicious. The dining room has closely packed tables and no sound dampening; so I wouldn't dub it romantic at alll, but... More

We ate at Le Bouchon for the first time on Valentine's Day. What a great experience! They had a fixed menu and it was wonderful. The asparagus soup was absolutely amazing. For main course, I had the duck and my husband had the beef. They were both wonderful. When you looked at the plates of those around us, everyone ate... More

Very small but cozy restaurant. Chef within 50 feet of every table. Awesome food. Great service. Cheese plate is insane. Wine selection great. If you do not like sitting super close to others, you will probably not like it here. Trust me, it's worth it!

A first-time dinner at Le Bouchon after having two lunches here, and we're already looking to another return visit. Very well-prepared French classics in an understated, casual setting with a few tables on the sidewalk for warmer weather. We began with a delicate pastry filled with mixed mushrooms and snails in garlic butter; hearty cassoulet and roast duck as entrees... More
