“FANTASTIC FOOD & CHARM - WHERE THE LOCALS EAT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

Wherever I go, I ask local workers for their favorite dining spot. Bouchon gets it, hands-down in Asheville.

Delicious and very imaginative spins on traditional French dishes, with new plates as well. Excellent wine selection. Unique, cozy, great energy, very enthusiastic staff. Service is not rushed, but very efficient.

AND THE BEST LOCAL COFFEE YOU WILL EVER HAVE! Dynamite Roasters' Clemencia Suplicar ("Beg for Mercy").

Did I mention the desserts???? Dreamy... forget the calorie counter.

Just genuine - and genuinely enjoyable.

“Cozy and Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

A recommendation of our hotel, we were not disappointed. We sought a bargain wine and were very pleased with their house red. We could not get enough of their bread and butter, which was such comfort food on a chilly fall evening. We sat in the wine cellar, which was perfect because it was quieter and far from the main dining room. Loved the duck confit over pumpkin ravioli with sage cream sauce. Almost too rich, but delicious nonetheless. Very kind and helpful server. A wonderful experience.

“Loud but delicious & generous portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Bouchon is a fairly loud restaurant, which kills its potential romantic vibe, but the food is very good and the prices are fair ($20 for a substantial amount of steak, vegetables and fries). When we return to the city, I'm sure we'll eat here again, which is the best compliment I can give.

“Great atmosphere+Great wine+Great food=A Great Time at Bouchon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

We went tonight as a group of 6 for my wife's birthday. We're locals, but had never been before. Everything was as good as advertised. We waited a bit, long enough to enjoy a few glasses of wine, for a large table. It was raining out so their outside seating wasnt available, this caused the inside dining area to be a bit more crowded than it otherwise may have been. Even though the place was full and bustling, our service was quick, effecient, and friendly. We enjoyed the all you can eat mussels and would certainly come back to try the rest of the menu.
