Fantastic food, beautifully presented. The chocolate dessert was sublime. Great service. We stayed here and had a 2nd floor room overlooking the harbour. The breakfast pastries were made by the chef and delivered hot and fresh to the room. Extras provided included milk and bottles of water in the fridge, coffee machine with plenty of tea / coffee pods, and... More

From the first minute to the end, this restaurant provided the best dining experience we've had in a long time. The meal (which was intended to be relaxing and enjoyable) was paced perfectly. Our server (Dan) was spot on with his recommendations, had the lamb at his suggestion. Perfect! Husband's escargot, my appetizer (lobster and asparagus in puff pastry) were... More

My husband and I went to Restaurant Bouchard because of its reputation and were not disappointed. We were delayed in traffic from Pennsylvania and called at 4:30 to let them know we probably wouldn't make our 6:30 reservation. They were so kind - and told us they would hold the table for an hour and if we couldn't make that... More

My husband and I made reservations for a table and we were led to a nice corner table in a small and cozy room. The music was wonderful, French, Frank Sinatra, all stuff we would play at home. The bread was terrific and the butter was like dessert. I ordered the Halibut special and my husband had the stuffed pork... More

We stayed in the inn and decided to dine in their restaurant. what a great decision. Excellent service, attentive but not intrusive. Great choice on the menu and several specials each day. All of the staff were very friendly and all of our food was delicious...especially the Grand Marnier souffle. Reservations strongly recommended.Treat yourself to a great dining experience.

First time visiting Bouchard. Had a a delicious beet salad (quite a small portion - beware if you're hungry), followed by perfectly cooked filet of beef cooked in red wine and horseradish. Finished off by sharing a perfect souffle with creme anglaise. Good wine list with a lot of expensive bottles but also plenty of affordable choices. Friendly, understated service.... More

all the years we've gone to Newport and it took us until now to find our greatest dinner ever; better late than never. The food was extraordinary as was the superb cocktail and the wine. Service matches the level of the food in a lovely, quiet setting. It is no wonder that they were filled on a Monday night. Each... More
