    I was disappointed with the lentil soup. It was not tasty. The lamb (meat)was excellent but I did not think the beans went well with it. The French onion soup was too salty. The trout (fresh)was good though.

    We had a wonderful experience! My husbands flat iron steak was cooked beautifully, medium rare. I had sturgeon and it was delicious. We shared a salad with bacon and poached egg with a vinegar dressing, a perfect balance of flavors. It was both of our birthdays, they brought both of us a special dessert. Excellent wait staff as well. Highly recommend it.

    Went to Bouchon for lunch and was surprised that the Moules et frites were not on the menu. The waiter explained that they are not on the "printed" menu at lunch but always available. They are on the printed dinner menu. Bouchon's are the gold/mussel standard for the world. None better. Topped off with the lemon tart. Well, I had a very fine lunch.

    always enjoy lunch there. wish that the duck confit was a regular item, I seem to always order it when it is on the menu. it took a too long for the entrees to be delivered to the table. my only issue with the restaurant is that the delivery of the food seems to take too long for lunch. it would not be a problem for dinner.

    Sunday brunch was excellent with several menu items to choose from. We both had the duck cassoulet hash, which had deep earthy flavors and was absolutely delicious. All of the breads served were outstanding. One of my favorite things in life is their fruit croissant, and the blueberry did not disappointment. Cappuccinos were perfectly made. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and very attentive. Our only complaint is the music. It was much too loud and the choice of genre did not fit with the ambiance. The music consisted of pop, techo and some rap. We would have expected something more bistro like - perhaps soft jazz or French music.

    I have held the Bouchon in Yountville as one of my favorite restaurants I've been to in the world. I got excited when staying down the block from the Beverly Hills eatery this past weekend so I could harken on some of those memories. The setting was beautiful and romantic, my girlfriend and I dinned on the terrace and were quite enchanted by the the setting. The service was terrible, my questions were usually answered in short, patronizing responses or not at all. Some answers weren't even to the questions I was asking. I ordered an iced tea twice and never got one, ordered more bread twice and never received any. The food wasn't much better in my opinion either. Salad was overdressed and wilty. Oysters seemed shucked upsidedown.

    Bouchon, which never would have survived this long without Thomas Keller's aura, appears to be dying. The reception staff are untrained and unprofessional. Our server was experienced and very good but most appeared to be very young and lost. The escargot with puff pastry was okay but almost devoid of garlic and the steak frites featured good french fries with a perfectly cooked but flavorless piece of steak. Wine service was very good. On a Thursday night from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm the place was almost completely empty.

    great ambiance, especially on the terrace. Service was good, nothing wrong. The food was well prepared, timed well, and overall close to flawless. However my medium rare steak Bouchon was getting close to beyond medium. For $64 I expect a steak cooked a pointe. Also, they could easily reduce the amount of pomes frites on the plate, it comes with plenty! Nice fries though. The wine list is a bit pricey. Overall, very nice meal of classic French bistro cuisine but prepare to pay for the location and name brand chef.

  • Beware of "comp" appetizers
    takenforaride
    Dined on 10/31/2014
    We ordered main courses only as we'd just spent two hours over cocktails and appetizers. A manager came over after we placed our order to offer an appetizer, "Your steak will take some time. Can I offer you a Salmon Rillette while you wait?" We declined as my husband does not eat fish. "How about crab claws?" The crab claws came and they were delicious. Imagine our surprise when they appeared on the bill. When a manager comes over and offers something "while you wait", it sounds like a comp. We paid but it left a bad impression and we will not recommend Bouchon.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Fried Chicken and Biscuit??

    Dined on 10/6/2014
    Our concierge suggested we try this place. Looked at menu online and seemed reasonable. Shocked to see menu at the restaurant. There were only 4 or 5 dinner entrees and special being "fried chicken and biscuit". Mussels were half cooked and very small. Drink had an after taste. I asked my server if I want a steak I would go to Mastro's across the street. Where is the French food menu? After a while he brought in a full menu. I ordered Trout and was loaded with salt and couldn't taste anything in it. We were deeply disappointed. Their chef needs to visit Christopher's or Zinc Bistro in Phoenix to taste some genuine French food.

    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!
