We visited Bouchons twice when in Hanalei for lunch, and both times there were issues. It advertises sushi, but doesn't actually serve it for lunch. They were out of most of the regulars (chicken, nachos etc) and the food wasn't great. There are better options in the vicinity.

We ordered their lunchtime special: rib, chicken strip, ono, coconut shrimp. Mai tai special $7.50 and hubby said was good (although his came only with a chunk o' pineapple, every other one came with that, plus lemon wedge, cherry and umbrella!) Staff friendly enough, one over the top, sickeningly sweet. Phony. Rib was tender and yummy! Ended up being battered... More

First off the place was nearly empty when everything else was busy but we were hungry. Ordered some sushi, which used to be decent there, and some ribs, Caesar salads and sweet potato fries. Ribs were boiled with cold barbecue sauce from a jar poured over. Regular frozen fries. Gross. Sushi was tasteless and not very fresh. Caesar salad came... More

We've been coming to Hanalei for over 20 years but always avoided Bouchons because it looks like a typical tourist trap that offers a great view and nothing else. So, the view is good but not the best on Kauai and the food is very good. I chose the sashimi and heart of cucumber salad. The fish was just fine... More

After seeing most of the restaurants had a line we decided to try this one. Apart from the Lava Flow cocktail (which was delicious) I wouldn't recommend anything else. The entree came out after people behind us in line got their mains. Then 2 seconds later, our mains came out which was cold and didn't have the sides we were... More

We visited this place a few days ago, and were not impressed at all. It took forever to be seated because the hostess had disappeared and wasn't anywhere to be found. When she appeared, we were immediately seated. Our server was nice and frequently checked up on us, but it took way too long to get our appetizer which was... More

We stopped at this Japanese American restaurant one rainy night while exploring the North Coast of Kauai. The ambience was very nice and we enjoyed sushi and mai tais at a leisurely meal. The teenagers found food to order for their tastes so all were happy.

Travelling with older teenagers, we were staying at Kailua and drove up to Hanalei for a day trip. After a long day we were ready to drive back and find a place to dine closer to home. We stopped to have a wander around Hanalei town and at the las minute checked the menu and ventured up the stairs to... More

We visited on a very busy night a few weeks before Christmas. We waited about 15 minutes to be seated and could tell everyone was VERY busy. We got prompt attention from our server, and food and drinks came in good time. He even brought us out a little bowl of fries first when we said we were starving -... More

Took 35 minutes for 5 people to be seated even though we had a reservation. They forgot 3 of our orders (edamame, salad and chicken tenders). It also took forever. I think it was probably just because they weren't used to being so busy.

Our relaxed and spacious second story, open-air restaurant has a great ambiance and best picture taking views of Hanalei's mountains and waterfalls. Visitors and locals come time and time again for Bouchon's Pacific-American menu that's filled with a great selection of fresh homemade pupus, local caught seafood, teriyaki chicken, ribs and a premier sushi bar second to none. The famous Copper Bar serves up everything from soft drinks to Saki, including our very popular Mai-Tai. Located in the heart of Hanalei, we have the perfect gathering place to enjoy with family and friends.
