I wish we had tried Bouchon earlier in our stay, after four nights in town I felt they were my overall favorite. This is a simple menu, not overloaded with a lot of choices, safe to assume that what they offer they do consistently well....More

A friend and I ate here and it was even better than our high expectations. We both had different fish dishes, which were delectable. The wine pairings suggested by our server were superb. We had the avocado stuffed with crabmeat as an appetizer and the...More

This restaurant does not take reservations. On a prior attempt to eat here we were told the wait would be over an hour and we chose not to wait. On the recent visit it was 20 minutes but we decided to eat at the bar....More

Bouchon is a taste of France--but the best thing is all you can eat mussels with perfect frites!! Great place to meet and talk with friends--

My spouse and I have been wanting to eat at Bouchon for quite some time. Finally, for my spouse's birthday, we dined there on June 15, 20167. Since Bouchon does not accept reservations and is rumored to be very popular, we arrived at approximately 5:15...More

Typical French fare that pleases the palate. A little something for everyone. Would recommend trying this out if you like French cuisine.

Consistently very good French neighborhood fare. Start with the pear salad and then enjoy the crispy duck or entrcote with a peppercorn sauce. Make sure to have the french fries; they're the real deal. The atmosphere is French bistro all the way with tables outside...More

I have been to Bouchon in Napa Valley and truthfully enjoyed this one more which surprised me. You have to be waiting outside their door when they open at 5 in order to be assured of a table right away! Many of the people in...More

After reviewing on TripAdvisor several Asheville restaurants we chose Bouchon. I was a bit concerned that they do not accept reservations but that turned out to be a moot point. We did have a "30-40 minute wait" but we walked up and down the block...More

No, they do not. Bouchon Asheville is walk-in only, first come, first serve.

I don't think they have a bakery. Bouchon is a bistro and doesn't open until 5:00 pm. Perhaps you are confusing it with its sister restaurant next door, Creperie Bouchon, which is more of a Parisian cafe, but still not a... More
