Went last night for my birthday. They don't take reservations so the wait was about an hour. The staff was wonderful though and after 45 minutes hooked us up with some fabulous starters to keep us going. It's worth the wait. I LOVE the French fries. Lots of garlic and herbs. I had the duck, and Agratin potatoes. Yummy. The... More

This restaurant has a special every Wednesday of all you can eat moules frites. A serving was brought to the table behind us and a not quite fresh odor emanated. After having a whiff of that, I decided to order something else. My husband took the plunge. The frites ARE spectacular, but the mussels did not taste that good to... More

My out of state daughter loves to send my wife and I to dinner at the best area restaurants (as she finds them on the internet). So, we arrive early at Bouchon, 5 minutes after opening. No problem with seating and the homey atmosphere and attentive service was welcoming. However, we have eaten all over France and Europe and this... More

Everything we ate and drank was delightful. We each selected two wines off the menu, both of which were excellent. I ordered the Prime Rib, and it was perfectly cooked and tender -- perhaps the best steak I've eaten at a restaurant. My husband ordered the Chicken Cordon Bleu and also really enjoyed his meal. We also ordered the cheese... More

Bouchon is one of our favorite restaurants in Asheville. Our return visit demonstrated why: cozy atmosphere, friendly service, moderate prices and good food. This visit we ordered the beef bourguignon and ravioli. Both were winners.

After reading many reviews on Bouchon we decided to try it when in Asheville. We arrived at 5 pm for an early dinner and there were several other people waiting too. They do not take reservations. Our drinks were good and prepared exactly how we ordered them.. Since it was Thursday, steak tartar was on the menu and my husband... More

Delicious food in a french style bistro in downtown Asheville. The escargot and Moules were tastily prepared. We enjoyed our meals (beef bourginion and steak and frites) the first evening so much that we returned the next night to sample 2 different fish dishes. The prices were reasonable and the quality excellent.

Mussles, steak, best french fries and FF sauce ever. Excellent selection of wine and deserts. I've eaten hear well over a dozen times and have never been disappointed. Excellent date spot! Sometimes they've had live music, the food and service NEVER disappoints!
