I have gone here a couple of times trying to like it. I get the french bistro thing but this just isn't it. The food is bland and flavorless. They have a hicken on the menu but it is only for two, they don't have it for one. I dont get that. Ambience is bustling and tables are close together. Simple oes not have to mean flavorless

After reading the review in the AAA Westways magazine we quickly made a reservation for our upcoming visit to Santa Fe. What a mistake. The food was mediocre and the wine prices were exhorbitant. The ambiance left a lot to be desired unless one likes to sit at metal tables on a concrete pad with the wind whistling through the tarpaulins!!

A little bit of a French bistro in the heart of Santa Fe. The food is excellent, beautifully staged against the manicured outdoor patio.
Open for just 2 months, chef Charles Dale found his niche immediately. Lovely evening.

The only thing southwest about Bouche is the building and location. Otherwise, this is a traditional French bistro with the food fare one would expect. Charles Dale has scored big with his new restaurant and has d=filled a void that has been sorely lacing in Santa Fe. Everything from the escargot to daily specials are prepared with careful attention. Staff are friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The vibe of the room is great and one can choose to dine inside or outside.
Deffinitlely worth a visit when you come to town and a place where I am sure the locals will hang out.

Had a lovely dinner, great service, from the gentleman at the door, to our server, to the kitchen guy by the bathroom. Our only complaint is that while waiting for our table at the chefs table is that the owner showed and expressed his stress a bit too loudly, extremely unprofessional.
