    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.

    I was tying a very important project and knew the clients would enjoy the atmosphere at Bouchon. It makes you feel alive with the activity and professionalism. It says something about a person who goes to this restaurant, successful but not stuffy....We enjoyed our 3 hour lunch and concluded our business over great food.

    We had the seafood tower. It was amazing. We can't remember ever having seafood like this, it was sooo fresh. Nothing was dry. Everything perfect including the sauces. What a treat. 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.

  • Forget the chicken
    AndrewVIP
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    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.

    Before 7:00 PM and out of white meat? On an evening when the draw was specifically the Fried Chicken Special? And one of the dark meat pieces arrives raw in the middle? The Peach Cobbler is really peach crisp and WAY overpriced. Save your self the heartache and disappointment and go to KFC or El Pollo Loco. You will be happier.

    We had a group of six. We were seated in a nice quiet quasi booth. We all ordered the Fried Chicken. This is served on the first and third Mondays of the month. The service was great. The restaurant was a little too warm. My only criticism is the serving of the mashed potatoes was lite. The French fries were to die for as well as the oysters.

    Been to Bouchon multiple times. Never had any issues, always consistent in their quality, taste and presentation of their foods, excellent services. Menu selection isn't 'large' but 'just right'. Portion is adequate. Had their famous A.H Fried Chicken - worth trying (1 piece thigh, 1 piece drum and 1 piece breast w/ mash, greens and corn bread). We also had Escargot, french onion soup, steak, lamb, pasta, roast chicken. ALL WERE EXCELLENT. Their chicken for some reason were always tender and juicy. Will definitely continue to go.

    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.

    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

    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.
