We recently visited Newport for the Memorial Day weekend and decided to not only stay, but, dine at Bouchard's, a combination inn and restaurant. The meal, service and ambiance were outstanding. From the initial bread to the Grand Marnier souflee, and everything in-between we were impressed and delighted. This is a premier French restaurant and we would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in haute cuisine. We can't wait to return and sample the menu again. The escargot was absolutely exquisite! Thanks again Chef Albert for a wonderful evening! Magnifique!!

My friends and I dine at Bouchard's every time we visit Newport. We have never had a bad dinner nor has anyone in the restaurant been rude to us. We love that we can take our time enjoying their wonderful food and not have someone take the appetizer away and serve the entree immediately following. The appetizer that we have all tried at one time or another is the asparagus and lobster in a puff pastry which is consistently good. The rack of lamb is the best I have ever eaten. The sauce does not overpower the taste of the lamb and the vegetables are very tasty. The Dover sole is also a wonderful choice. The souffle is very good and not too filling after a delicious meal. The restaurant is comfortable and nicely decorated.

Atmosphere was nice. Medium sized restaurant with a front and back room, and small cozy side lounge.
Worst part of the meal was the initial bread. Hard and too chewy. Fortunately everything else was much better. Escargot appetizer was delicious served in a light cream sauce with toast pieces. Restuffed lobster with scallops and lobster meat with cheese was very tasty served with a few vegetables and small portion of mashed potatoes. Good variety of dessert options and the apple in a puff pastry with ice cream was good. Service was OK but somewhat slow as one lady served as the hostess, bartender,and waitress. If there had been more than the 6 or 7 tables occupied she could have been overwhelmed.

This restaurant should be named "Snob". The whole environment and wait staff was so rude and made us feel like we should be lucky to be dining in there restaurant. I have never met an owner of a restaurant that actually makes customers feel that way. Also, the food is not even that great our meal was ice cold by the time it got to us. My husband and I had a horrible last night in Newport because of this restaurant.
