  • Not what we expected from Bouchon
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    The food quality was disappointing. Had to send back a pasta dish as it was not done cooked correctly. Replacement was not much better. We love Bouchon in Napa and this was well below that standard.

    This is the first time for me at the Beverly Hills location of Bouchon and I was not disappointed. I first experienced Bouchon in Las Vegas and was so impressed that I took a friend for a birthday celebration to the Beverly Hills location. The food was outstanding and they have the best coffee I have ever had. It is set over looking a courtyard, which is beautifully landscaped and added to the ambiance. The restaurant was quiet, but the bar downstairs which also serves food, was quite lively, if you prefer that. Either way, it's a great dining experience.

    The dinner was a disappointment. The kitchen had a very heavy hand with the salt, way over seasoned. The drinks were skimpy, a lot of ice and little liquor. I expected grade A food and got a solid B which is OK if that is what is expected. we won't be back

    Solo meal; onion soup tasted as if the onions were burnt though they appeared dark/translucent as expected. Possible due to my ordering soup w/o cheese the dish was out of balance. Ordered Tuna Salad entree, tuna was prepared perfectly with nice density and texture. Didn't really enjoy the dressing but it wsa fine. Worth coming just for the bread and old-world butter! Service was friendly and professional, with prompt service.

    Whether in Beverly Hills or Yountville, Bouchon is always perfect. The laitue salad is simple but delicious. Three of us ordered the roast chicken, which they do well. One person had the lamb. Profiteroles for dessert. A great dinner again.

    We went there with our clients to take them for a nice lunch and have some wine. It was a very busy day. The lunch and the table service team was excellent. The day manager was very nice and friendly, but overall it felt like the restaurant was in transition compared to Bouchon in Las Vegas which, on the other hand, is a very tight ship with unbelievable service. Tip: Use the Valet Parking and don't try to public park as the parking lot is small and gets filled very quickly.

    I have been to Bouchon a number of times, and I am sad to say that this is the first time that the service was not up to the usual level that I have come to appreciate at Bouchon. Not that it was horrid, just not as on point as normal.

  • HABIT-FORMING AD HOC CHICKEN NIGHT

    Dined on 10/6/2014
    We enjoyed Monday night's Ad Hoc Chicken Night so much that we are considering making it an indulgent habit. The chicken was crispy and delicious outside and meaty and tender inside. Accompaniments change but we had a mustard based potato salad and a corn succotash that will change your mind about succotash. As always at Bouchon, the service was gracious and never intrusive, attentive and cheerful. Offered on the first and third Mondays of each month, this is a culinary opportunity not to be missed!

    Although there were quite a few tables availabe we were given a table with one seat facing the back wall. We suggested that we sit side by side facing out, using two of the tables--there were 5 empty tables. The Hostess told us very politely they were totally booked and it was impossible--although none of the tables were ever used. Disappointing. Our server was great and dinner was delicious.

    Wandering up and downy the streets of Beverly Hills, if one happens upon Bouchon, don't hesitate to stop in and ask for a table. Food and wine are excellent, and although it's "not New York," it's a little bit of Paris in tacky BH.

    The main reason anyone goes to Bouchon for the food. If never you've discovered this dining gem. You will be quite pleased with your find. The restaurant is large and quite a lovely design. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. The main drawback of our dining experience was the table service. Items arrived at our table out of order or they did not come at all. It was a busy night and the kitchen seemed unprepared for the crowd. The waitress apologized and did not charge for items that never arrived. I will definitely return to enjoy this fabulous place.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/24/2014
    Service was slooooow, food nothing special, my wife ordered the steak frites and asked if the kitchen could hold the shallots, they came on the plate anyway which meant that we ate separately, I was finished by the time her steak arrived. Don't understand why a white tablecloth restaurant with upper scale prices would allow guests to wear baseball hats and shorts in dining room. Server comped drinks after manager forgot to bring my wife the drink that she ordered from him and then brought desert as an acknowledgement that service was slow and steak was incorrect. Cafe on ground level is much more enjoyable.

    Have eaten at Bouchon many times, generally happily, but the service was the worst I can recall. Anywhere. An hour to place our orders. And then every request we made - order of plates, slight changes - was fouled up. The waitress, though sweet, was completely inept and disappeared for ridiculously long stretches. We were sitting outside, so perhaps you're better off inside, where I haven't had problems. But it really took the wind out of a special occasion.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 9/14/2014
    The food was okay, but I expected a little bit better. Considering how simple and straightforward the menu is and Keller's legendary reputation for being a perfectionist. The gazpacho was just okay, but I expected it to be made with better quality tomatoes than standard issue, supermarket quality roma tomatoes. The quiche was too rich and the crust was flavorless and undercooked. The raw and cold seafood items were okay to very good, but the mussels were slightly overcooked. The raw oysters and clams were top notch. We bought pastries and sweets downstairs. They were very good, especially the bread pudding.

    Overall, disappointing. The food in Bouchon was unpleasantly rich and overwhelming with flavors/spices; fried/pan seared dishes were literally soaking in butter, which brought the flavor down. The service was impeccable, though. Not the same Bouchon as few years back - DO NOT RECOMMEND

    We dined at Bouchon with 3 friends on Saturday September 13th. Bouchon is hardly a secret, but being first time diners there, we were blown away by every single aspect of the restaurant, from the beauty of the main dining room, to the service in front-of-house, the bar and dining room, to the exquisite menu, quality and perfection of the food presentation, preparation and taste. For a 5 star restaurant it is surprisingly reasonable, and the bar there makes THE BEST Old Fashioned ever! There is every reason to recommend Bouchon to the most discerning diners and absolutely no reason not to put it high on anyone's list of places to experience.

Having grown up on the east coast & living in L.A. for 20 years, we forgot how great fresh shellfish could be. Bravo to Bouchon!

    This was not a good experience and I will not return. The service was as bad as it gets. We had to ask for our server three times before anyone arrived to take our order. The wine steward came to assist after requesting twice, and he did make a good recommnedation. The food was, at best, fair, and they forgot to bring our appetizers, which they did, later provide after our entrees for free. The shrimp cocktail was actually the best part of the meal. Overall it was an extremely unpleasant experience.

    We came to celebrate a birthday. We had some appetizers and dessert. The focus of our meal was a dozen oysters and they were fabulous; four different kids, three each. Our server suggested some salads (heirloom tomato, and a special, soft-shell crab) which went well with the oysters. Add two desserts and a complimentary birthday dessert, and we left full and happy.

    I went for the fried chicken from the famous Ad Hoc recipe. This review is specific to the chicken other than to note that the entrance to the restaurant is complicated and uninviting. The service: No one came for between 5 and 10 minutes. Then, the chicken arrived almost immediately. I have been to Bouchon before and the service was first rate. The chicken was a terrible disappointment. The sides (we had two orders) were OK but way too small, the cornbread was thin and uninspired, but, worse, was the chicken. Start with four legs and two thighs. No white meat for $38 per person? The chicken was bland, not particularly crispy, and the thigh was both undercooked and so fatty and full of cartilege that there was less to eat than the leg.
