We had a great time at his little restaurant. The service was initially slow and we were unable to be seated outside. However, many of the dishes were outstanding. My husband loved his onion soup and steak au poivre. My beet salad was delicious and I hated that I could not eat all of it (it was huge). I was... More

Since Bouchon does not take reservations we stopped in just after they opened at 5 p.m. and boy are we glad we did! This place is fantastic. Friendly service, excellent food with fresh ingredients, extensive wine list and outstanding desserts. Come hungry!

My fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Delicious appetizers and entrées. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and very professional. Extensive wine list for your drinking pleasure. Somewhere I would definitely go back too.

All you can eat mussels on certain nights with delicious frites (French fries). Great wine and beer. French onion soup! And an amazing crepes Suzette. Six of us had to wait for a table for a few minutes but it was well worth it. Perfect for family dining or just for two. The food and the service was exceptional! We... More

Stopped here for dinner Oct. 19th. This place is amazing! I wish I lived close enough to eat here more often. When we got there the host informed us that it would be a 20 minute wait. She took my name and number, and we headed out in a quick walk to pass the time. Less than 10 minutes later... More

After an expected long wait for a table (thank goodness a brewery was nearby), we had an amazing meal. The endless mussels were fantastic and being able to select the various broths made for a perfect feast. The Provençal herb dusted frites were the best I've ever had (and I'm a potato freak!). The wines were reasonably priced and excellent.... More

Michel continues to deliver at this fantastic restaurant in Asheville. You feel like you are in a Parisian restaurant with the nightly crowds and atmosphere. Food is fantastic and comes out piping hot which I appreciate. Nice wine selection as well. You have to love the street side window service which is a rarity in Dixie!

It was Thursday night around 7:30 or 8, the weekend of Hurricane Matthew, when we arrived at Bouchon. Asheville was crowded. We sat at the street side bar to have a glass of wine while waiting for a table. The bartenders were kind and patient. When seated our server did not rush us. She seemed like more of a consultant....

We were trying to make a wise choice for a restaurant on our last night in Asheville. (There are so many wonderful options here!). We finally settled on Buchon and were very happy. We took a previous reviewers advice and showed up a bit before they opened at 5. There were already people in line. By 5:20 or so, the... More
