Our second time here, and first as a couple, and the restaurant continues to surprise and delight. Every dish had touches that stood out--flower buds in salads, fresh locally sourced meats, contrasting textures. We did not find portions to be small as other reviewers have...More

I really was hoping for something amazing, given the reputation of this restaurant, but found it was just OK, and the food was somewhat uneven. The best thing was actually the appetizer, which was brought as a treat from the chef - it was a...More

Lunch at the American Bounty is quite a contrast to the stuffiness of the Bocuse (though you'll see some overlap in key ingredients). But once again there were some really good flavors. Portions are larger, prices are lower. Good value. Students are chatty if you...More

Hello there! We have heard so many wonderful things about The Bounty. We would love to partake. Someone was telling me of a cute town/area nearby to also visit. Do you know it? It is Rein-----. The second half of the name escapes me. Do you know what I might be referring to? Thanks for your assistance. \Regards, Grace Quigua
