    What a really special dinner. Thomas Keller was in house the evening we went. The food was perfection. I had the tasting menu and wasn't disappointed. My pickled heirloom tomato salad was summer on a plate. My daughter's steak frites was also a highlight of our meal. Our server, Arielle, was on pointe and very attentive. The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable.

    service was not good at all. food was very sub-par given the pedigree of the owner. $32 for shrimp "hash?" the dish was literally maybe two shrimp diced into a stir-fry with some potatoes and squash in a buttery sauce. literally a rip-off. all else was exceedingly average as well.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Avid diner. Not keen on BH for dining generally, but felt like a change of pace. The hospitality was phenomenal and unquestionably one of the best dinners I've had in ages. The pate de campagne was the best I've ever had (including my travels to France) and the Steak Frites, while generally a obligatory afterthought for any "bistro" and pedestrian in its approach - there's was remarkable. The flat iron steak was had amazing texture, cooked perfectly and accompanied by some next-level maitre'd butter on top. And our server, Noah, alone would have been worth coming back for. Friendly, attentive, excellent recommendation and a genuine sense of concern for the enjoyment of our dinner. Can't wait to get back...

    Bit disappointed in the food. Nothing was amazing. The "skate" was tasty but not memorable. The chocolate mousse was tasty, but needs to be presented in a prettier way - maybe in a ramekin or bowl. The shape of the mousse was very bad - looked like something unmentionable.

    We have dined in Bouchon in Yountville a number of times and have enjoyed it immensely. There is a bustle and an intimacy that rekindle the love we have for Paris bistros. Bouchon in Beverly Hills is far more Beverly Hills than it is Bouchon. The dress and decor are more or less the same, but the space has been amplified to such an extent that the ambiance and intimacy are gone. I suppose if 300 people filled the dining space that feeling might return, but overall I was disappointed with the experience. The entrance to the restaurant is completely off-putting - it is upstairs accessed through some downstairs dining. The food was fine - still the same Thomas Keller quality, although I felt the portions were a little undersized.

    I took my boyfriend to Bouchon for his birthday. We went for brunch on August 17. I ordered the trout. Honestly, it was the best trout I have ever tasted. The chef somehow figured out how to create the perfect blend of flavors. My boyfriend got the chicken and waffles. Loved them as well, particularly the lavender butter. It was a really nice touch when they brought out a brownie and ice cream for his birthday This is a place I would recommend for special occasions or celebrations. The food, service, decor everything is perfect. If there is any area for improvement, it would be to perhaps let us enjoy the glasses of champagne a few moments longer before bringing out the food. However this was not a big deal. The service was exceptional.

    The food was good and I would go back. The main server could have been better and other than taking our order, he didn't stop by very much. Those that took care of the water and bread were very attentive. Even the people at the bakery could have been friendly. When buying pastries, they seemed to be bothered that they had to help us rather than having a friendly happy attitude. But the thing that bothered us the most was we saw a dog walking around the restaurant. He didn't have a leash and walked around like he owned the place. We even saw him being carried into the kitchen and his owner was standing with him next to the food. We saw his owner talking to the manager and she even helped put items on the table so it is the managers dog

    We had to wait ten minutes for our table and while there were no seats at the bar it seemed like the hostess really wanted us to go there. Otherwise a very good meal, very good food and friendly service. A bit disappointed with the sommolier who didn't return in time to get our wines to pair with our courses as we had requested.

    With the risk of sounding over the top, I mean to. We have been here before as well as other Bouchon locations and he never misses. Crispy salmon belly? Amazing. Quich for appetizer? Perfect. Mussels, rib eye, flat iron, grilled pork chop.....all perfect. Not to mention the French fries..... Sit on the deck and look down at the Montage courtyard and enjoy a unique spot among the hustle of LA.

    I have eaten at the Las Vegas and Yountville branches many times. This was my first time at the Beverly Hills location. I was generally disappointed with the food (not enough garlic on the escargots, etc). The service was indifferent and, at times, annoying. The server always seemed preoccupied by other matters. I had high hopes for this one.

    I have had many enjoyable meals here mainly on the cafe patio downstairs but the last two upstairs were disappointing. the service on the balcony was just awful both times. Waiters were poorly trained and unskilled. the food was a mix of good dishes and disappointments. Our foody friends from NYC were very disappointed in their dishes including a dry chocolate dessert that waiter did not even offer to replace. Lunch was nothing special but not bad. I look to Keller's restaurants to be exceptional though.

    So, there is a lot of discussion about a French bistro which recently opened with 3 guys, all chefs at the helm. One of the chefs is a celebrity and hopes to bring customers in to his 23 seat restaurant which offers only barstools for seating, no tables, accepts no cash and has no telephone number. He serves things like escargots, moules, steak and frites and other bistro fare. I went to Bouchon last night and enjoyed escargots, moules and frites and steak and frites, great cocktails and I sat at an actual table, was served great food on beautiful china. I had a confirmed reservation via Open Table and was directed to my table by an extremely friendly host. Bouchon is my bistro of choice. Can not imagine why one would even consider other.

    I was there for a very special occasion (anniversary). The noise level is unbearable. I had to returm my Lamb shunk twice because it was not warm. Finally they asked me to choose something else. I had the steak frites who was good as well as the salad. The bread is excellent. The staff was very nice and took my meal out of the bill. It was unfortunate. I will give it another try.

    Bouchon is a nice place, reportedly founded by Thomas Keller of French Laundry, one of the country's premiere French restaurants, a destination restaurant I've long he'll an interest in experiencing If Bouchon's cuisine is indicative of French Laundry's, then that interest has been severely blunted. Overcooked escargot was a major disappointment. Tasteless flat iron steak another. For the price point, tank up the car and drive up to Stella Mare in Santa Barbara and dine on delicious and tender escargot, canard, and frog legs.

    It was a wonderful experience of dining at Bouchon at Beverly Hills on our sixth anniversary. It's easy to make a reservation and they arrange the indoor seat according to my request that I submitted with my reservation. When I arrived there, I wanted a seat near the window. In fact, that seat for four people, but still they made it for my husband and me! They were so nice! The food was fantastic and we really enjoyed. To our surprise, they even gave us a anniversary gift--very delicious ice-cream and chocolate brownie :D They made our day, a very special day!!! Everything was so perfect! Thank you so much. I've already recommended my friends this nice restaurant.
