Absolutely amazing dining experience. The escargot was served in an amazing cream sauce. The reconstructed lobster and scallops was fantastic and the presentation was artistic. The other two diners had the pork loin and bass both of which got raves. The chocolate mousse topped off a wonderful experience. Thank you to Max who assisted us. Great staff!

My wife and I treated ourselves to an evening at Restaurant Bouchard for a second time in the last 2 years, and they impressed again. I do not usually have one of each course, but could not help myself here. It is a treat to have each course be brought out, taste, and appreciate each bite. Not enough restaurants do... More

Every dish I have had at Bouchards has been excellent! Even some of the more unusual dishes, such as sweetbreads. The service is such that there is no waiting. The atmosphere is very intimate. The food is pricey, but worth it. If you don't want to spend as much but still experience the atmosphere, go during the Newport Restaurant Week... More

This intimate restaurant was recommended by friends and I'm happy to continue in that tradition. On so many different levels this restaurant works and works flawlessly. It is listed in Open Table so making a reservation was very easy. It has a "business casual" dress policy which was clearly explained on the web site as well as by the hostess... More

Bouchard's is a place that's made for special events. We always come for our wedding anniversary and can't help ourselves and order the lobster cardinal each time with escargot and pate appetizers. The food is awesome!

If you are looking for a fine dinning experience, this is the place to go. Service was good but the food was great. I had the duck which was out of this world. The only downside was my drink. I ordered a manhattan on the rocks, and for 13 dollars, it may have been the worse one yet. I sent... More

Had a delicious dinner and delightful experience at the Restaurant Bouchard. Service was great - waitstaff attentive and courteous, atmosphere charming. Wonderful homemade pate and dinner rolls; lamb chops were delicious; presentation showed craft and care with vegetables cut and arranged as flowers. Enjoyed the recommended wine parings. Dessert was yummy. Fairly priced; well worth a return trip.

My wife and dined there on a Friday night in September. The service was excellent through out the meal. I started with the scallop ravioli special and my wife had the golden beet salad. Both were excellent. For our mains, I had the duck and my wife had the filet w/Brie. For desert we had the soufflé. Overall, every bite... More
