Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

What a comfy and wonderful dining experience! They know their cocktails, have great boudin balls, amazing salmon, delicious scallops, and yep that Krispy Kreme bread pudding is damn good too. The portions are just the right size and the prices are reasonable. Enjoy!

“Almost Perfect”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

We emailed several restaurants from Australia before our visit and Bouchon and Bayona were the only ones that replied - Bouchon in a laid back sort of way.
A cute old wooden house on Jessica street has been converted to a great little restaurant. It was buzzing and full - mixed diners ranging from young twenty something's to austere professors arguing over academic theory.
Menu and specials were appropriate and interesting - referencing French Cajun but energetically different. Great cocktails and superb wine list with options for wine by the glass. We both had variations of duck - and shared a fascinating caesar salad made from a seared lettuce - hard to do but beautifully smoky. The duck was succulent and delicious. Deserts were disappointing - mains magnificent. Book well ahead - but by phone! Recommended.

“anyone who says nothing's perfect obviously has not been to Boucherie”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Perfection begins at the door when one is greeted by the most charming people one could ever want to encounter at a restaurant - and that is only the beginning. Everything i/we tasted was beyond superb. I hereby order you to buy everything on the menu but if you are unwilling to do so you must at least have BBQ ribs , which are superior to and unlike any you've ever tasted before....and also have brisket and amazing parmesan garlicy fries and if you pass up the handmade ice cream...oh....and don't forget the collard greens and grits fries. Let me back up here...just order everything on the menu. Ya hear me? And when you are finshed eating and discover that you've spent half of what it would cost you and any restaurant that comes even close to Boucherie you'll want to hug everyone on the excellent and excellently trained staff. Are you getting the feeling here that I loved this restaurant?

“Some outstanding dishes, but incredibly slow service”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

For our first trip to NOLA, we consulted Yelp and Trip advisor and both recommended Boucherie as great food. For out of towners, note this restaurant is not withing walking distance of tourist areas like French Quarter, cab ride from there was almost $20 each way. The restaurant is in a renovated house, so its kind of cozy, like you are eating in someones home. But the area is a bit so-so for the Garden District.

We were seated promptly, and had a wonderful appetizer of Boudin Balls.
For main dish, my husband ordered BBQ Wagyu which was amazing, very tender and delicious. My Apple and Cheese Pierogies did not work so well (very thick dough and tasted almost undercooked) and I only ate part of my meal.

Dessert was an amazing Krispy Kreme Bread pudding, it tasted as good as it sounds.

My main complaint (and other diners too) was the incredidbly slow service. It seemed like the wait between starter and main course was 20-30 minutes. They only seemed to have a few servers for the entire place and drinks too a very long time to get refilled. Staff seemed overwhelmed, not sure if it was an "off" night.

Some stars in the menu, but if I come back I will drive there and make sure I have plenty of time to devote to dinner. I am not sure I would rate this the best restaurant in New Orleans.
