“Meringue Cookies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

The Monkey Bread was tasty but the raspberry meringue cookies were so tasty we had to return a few days later for another taste.

“Great Bakery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

Grabbed a coffee and some pastry here one morning while wandering around Yountville. Coffee was pretty good, but pastry was amazing. My wife grabbed one that was filled with a plum compote, and topped with a airy fruity cream cheese based topping which was perhaps the best baked desert item I have ever tasted. Very good place to grab a quick snack if you're in the area.

“Amazing French bistro food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Bouchon far exceeded my expectations. We went here a few days after a mind-blowing meal at The French Laundry, with middle-of-the-road expectations. The menu consists mainly of traditional French bistro fair prepared in a traditional style, but with a precision of execution that Thomas Keller is known for. We split a pâté which was absolutely divine. Sole meunière was perfectly cooked, as we're the steamed mussels. Strangely enough, one of the most memorable parts of the meal were fries. They were served with shaved black truffle and Parmesan, were just the right amount of crispy, and prepared from nice flavourful potatoes.

Bouchon is very good, just don't go there thinking it's going to be anything like French Laundry. If I ever make it back to Napa valley, I will for certain be going back to Bouchon

“Great bakery!”

My wife and I would go here in the mornings on our vacation. The lattes are excellent and the breakfast pastry is really good. The service is great. There is almost always a line so be patient.

“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Best bakery ever! Has a wide variety of delicious treats. Always has a line of people waiting out the door but it doesn't take long to get in and order, well worth the wait!
