A welcome sophisticated adult setting was a welcome relief from the touristy bustle of Newport There was refined charming service, tasteful music and the best stuffed lobster I've ever had. We ended a perfect meal with a perfect souffle.A romantic evening.

If you're in Newport and looking for a more upscale restaurant with lovely ambiance, excellent service, and very good food with a French touch, Bouchard is the place. It is easy to find and the staff is very helpful, professional, and responsive. Our server even told us where to find the best "chowdah" in the area and he was right!... More

Amazing food! This place is excellent. I ordered lobster bisque, pork tenderloin wrapped in a flaky crust, and a soufflé. The lobster bisque is the best I have had. It was creamy and had excellent lobster taste. The presentation was very nice. The pork tenderloin was also tasty and very well seasoned. Presentation was excellent. (See picture.) My husband ordered... More

We had a very pleasant dinner experience here. The food was exquisite, the ambiance was delightful. The restaurant was full. We were not rushed. We had a lovely slow paced meal with great service. Our waiter was busy but appeared at the perfect moment to refill wine glasses and to check on us. We enjoyed everything. The food was so... More

My wife and I had dinner here during our first night in Newport. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. We especially enjoyed the escargot and pâté appetizers.

We are local, venturing out to downtown Newport occasionally because of the resort traffic. We have decided to do this more often if it means a meal at Bouchard's. Phenomenal food, exquisite service, thank you Max and Carmine, quiet surroundings. Hadn't been to the restaurant in a while but will now make it there more often. Halibut special was amazing....

Excellent dining experience. French cuisine was well prepared and the wines offered good choices. Service was very good. Clearly the fine dining venue in Newport. More upscale than other restaurants and offers a quiet environment for a special dinner.

Love this restaurant!! Every time we're in Newport we try to go here for dinner. Most times we can't get in because I don't call early enough in advance. So if you want authentic French dining experience, plan your reservation well in advance. To start the evening my husband had the wine stewart pick out our bottle of French wine... More

Outstanding - food and service is top notch - like being in a Paris restaurant. Foie gras was some of the best we've ever had. Specials were perfectly prepared and cooked. We will definitely be visiting again.
