My girlfriend and I went to Le Bouchon after reading all the positive reviews. We went on a Saturday night so we expected it to be busy. What we weren't expecting was for there only to be one server for a fine dining restaurant of fifteen tables. We had a reservation and were seated fairly quickly, but it took fifteen minutes to get water and another fifteen for our drinks. Upon ordering I asked for recommendations and was flatly given no answer because the waiter was busy and said we should just order so our food doesn't take too long to prepare. What? We had clams that were average. Radish salad that was boring and right out of a can. French onion soup was good, but when I was finished the waiter cleared my bowl but left the dirty spoon saying I could use it for my entree. Really? Dinner was duck that was overcooked with no sauce and no flavor, and a cassoulet that was one step over franks and beans. Dessert was never offered and frankly we were fine with that because we didn't want waste anymore money. You could tell that the waiter didn't care that customers had a positive experience, and on several occasions we noticed him get irritated at requests that were given to him. Overall, it was a very poor experience that was not worth half what it cost. I would highly recommend avoiding Le Bouchon. It might have been worth it at some point, but in a city with high caliber restaurants it should be forgotten.
