A word from Bouchon
Highly acclaimed chef Thomas Keller (of The French Laundry) is behind this beautiful Yountville restaurant. Enjoy excellent French bistro cuisine in a dining room offering wonderful Parisian ambiance.

We invite you to visit Bouchon Bakery, an authentic, country-style boulangerie located next door Bouchon Bistro. The Bakery serves traditional French breads and pastries and is open from 7am - 7pm daily.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Best meal I had in Napa. The food was so delicious! And I am on a gluten-free dairy-free diet, and the chef was able to accommodate me. I will be dreaming about that dinner! The only negative was that the restaurant is quite loud."

  • "This was a highly recommend place to go for the name is associated with the renowned "French Laundry" restaurant. The food was good, but not worth the price tag. The highlight was probably the bread that is made daily in the shape of leaves and placed on the table. No repeat visit for us."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Everything I had was delicious! Great food, great wine, great service! I will definitely come back! They even were able to seat us earlier than our reservation!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Impeccable service. Lovely food. Great wine list at fair prices (we liked the Robert Sinskey POV so much we bought a case the next day). It is unusual to see restaurant wine at only two times retail; most mark up wine at three to four times! There is a reason for Keller's success"
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Mostly a waste of time. Our waiter had a superior attitude accompanied by a truly rude and abrupt manner.An outdoor fair we attended a day earlier had tastier food at a fraction of the cost.This restaurant is all hype and very little substance."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I loved the ambiance here. Our waiter was very friendly, spot on with recommendations and very professional. The food was expceptional. Everything was top notch, and I would definetly go back next time I am in Napa. Enjoy!"

  • "Dinner was excellent. The benches were super comfy. We were seated right away."

  • "I was looking forward to this meal and was a bit disappointed after it was over. Service was good tables a bit tight ,food pretty average. lol I couldn't recognise one wine on the list and they were all over a hundred dollars so we went with the house wines but they turned out to be excellent."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The menu, food, and service were sublime. My "daily special" included lamb steak, lamb sausage, and lamb bacon that seem to define how lamb should taste. The price, the setting, the cordial ambience, makes each occasion special."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "SIMPLY AWESOME! GREAT MENU, GREAT SERVICE! STEAK TAR TAR WITH LOBSTER A MUST TRY!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Great steak and frites. Fresh sweet tomato salad. Nice wine list. Service top notch. Second time visiting Bouchon on trip to California."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Restaurant a bit loud. Bread was Fabulous! Halibut was best we had all week but swordfish a bit dry. Enjoyed final glass of wine on adorable patio!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Nice french preparation of several things that we tried. Service was great!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "This was the second time I have eaten a Bouchon. This experience was not as good as the one I had two years ago. The heirloom tomato salad was very good but the pasta that day was to heavy with ricotta. The service was good but overall it was average and expensive for what we had for lunch."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We love Bouchon! We have been coming to Yountville for many years and always make Bouchon a destination restaurant. We are renting a home in Yountville for the month of July, have been to Bouchon twice already, and plan to go again. The food is amazing and the service is outstanding. Be sure to try the escargot."

  • "I have been dining at Bouchon for many years, and this latest time it was even better than ever."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The lamb shank special was very good. I've been more impressed with other dishes. Their bakery goods are always what we come for, and we'll be back again for them. The waitress forgot our side of egg with brunch."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We had brunch here and it was an excellent experience from food, service, and value. The special was a lobster omelette with fennel and mushrooms paired with a side salad. We raved about how good it was as we both ordered the special. Our coffee was never empty and the waiter provided excellent service. Also, the value was excellent as the special was only about $25 on the menu."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Most amazing fish I've ever had. Great music, amazing ambiance and wonderful service. Every person who worked there knew how to answer every question and in detail regarding food and wine."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "After having appetizers at the bar two nights prior, we decided to go back and try dinner. We were majorly disappointed with the endive salad to start and the service was forced and personable and lacking genuine hospitality. The steak Frites was under seasoned and lacked caramelization. The chicken liver mousse was very good however. Overall, we were very disappointed from the food and service even though we are big fans of TK's restaurants."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The appetizers were fabulous - chicken liver mousse, crab and charcuterie plate. The pork jowl special was a highlight, but the mussels were bland and flavorless and swordfish was overlooked. The lemon tart was delicious and the perfect way to end the meal. Overall a good experience but not great."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I think this place is overrated. The food is decent but not exceptional. I think there are many other restaurant with similar styles in Napa that offer better food and menu than the Bouchon."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Da entrada aos pratos tudo perfeito, o prato Steak Bernaise é o melhor que já comi sem dúvida e também o mais caro do menu, mas vale a pena, a sobremesa Torta de Limão estava fraca, uma versão mal sucedida do clássico na minha opinião. Jantar para um casal com vinho 250/ 300 dólares. Vale a pena conhecer a padaria do Bouchon que fica ao lado, tem coisas maravilhosas."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "One top French restaurant . Food was straight forward a tradtional gem."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Quality of food and service have been consistent. The restaurant has been well maintained and clean bathrooms."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Bouchon is a tiny step below The French Laundry so we save money and have great quality food, service and wines. Seasonal salads, soup, charcuterie, squid ink pasta, salmon tartare and of course wine."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "All the food was really good and the price is very fair. The service is very nice as well. The cheese plate is spectacular. The place was a little bit noisy, specially because we were sitting by the bar, which was crowded. We will come back for sure."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Après avoir passé une journée à visiter la région nous nous sommes offert une gâterie. Le Bouchon dont tout le monde parle. Alors défi relevé à tout les niveaux. Bouffe fraiche et excellente. Carte des vins suffisante, service de grande qualité et atmosphère incroyable quoi que un peu bruyante à l'intérieur. Recommande à tous mais attention à la carte des vins car le cout du repas peut sérieusement déraper."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The seating was cramped, the background noise was loud and the food was just OK; better than average, but not really special or exciting. I'd rather spend a little less and get a lot more at Bistro Jeanty, Mustard's or a couple of other places in Napa. However, their bakery (right next door) is great! Not to be missed."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This was our second time to Bouchon and we continue to be blown over by every aspect. Even down to the side dishes! The Mais et Lardons was to DIE for! We were fortunate to get Brian again as our server and he was forthcoming with information, had a fantastic demeanor and we never noticed a lack of anything. Lively atmosphere is friendly and fun. Counting down the days until our next visit!"

  • "My best friend and I thoroughly enjoyed my birthday meal at Bouchon. We sat outside since it was such a lovely day but we both commented on the charming interior. Each of us had unique and refreshing cocktails (mine was the Pont Neuf, with gin and elderflower). The wine selection was amazing and the Chenin Blanc we chose was perfectly cold on a warm evening. We split a delicious and unforgettable heirloom tomato salad with ricotta salata and basil vinaigrette. For my meal I chose the moules et frites: mussels in a fabulous white wine sauce and enough fries to thoroughly enjoy every drop! For dessert we picked up an assortment of macarons at Bouchon Bakery next door, where the line was out the door 10 minutes before close. So memorable!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The steak frites - awesome. The country pate did not disappoint. And what a great wine list."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "My first visit was a disaster - average French onion soup, uncooked beans in the cassoulet, average dessert, etc.. This time around, all the entrees were good to great (squid ink pasta, swordfish, lamb, parisienne gnocchi, flatiron steak), the carrot soup was excellent, and the desserts were good too. However, the garbanzo in the lamb were not cooked properly.. I can now conclude that Bouchon does not know how to cook legumes properly - uncooked beans in the cassoulet, almost cooked garbanzo.. So, please learn how to cook beans without making them mushy. Ask any Middle Eastern or Indian cook..! Overall, a nice spot for a casual lunch, reasonably priced, but nothing worthy of adulation."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The appetizers work well with the natural climate of the region in the summer months. What makes no sense is just how heavy their mains/entrees are. I would expect more from a place like Bouchon but serving hearty winter dishes simply do not work well in 70/80 degree weather. Service was impeccable and loved the ambiance."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I truly believe Thomas Keller is one of the most talented chefs in the world…which is why I have to believe he has nothing to do with the kitchen at Bouchon anymore. The dishes are extremely hit or miss, and it doesn't feel like there's any care being put into the execution. Moreover, on this occasion it felt like our server continually forgot we were there (or worse, didn't care that we were there), as we regularly had to ask him a second time for things that hadn't arrived yet. Unfortunately I think we're done with this restaurant. If you're looking to try a Keller restaurant and can't get into TFL, go to ad hoc. If you're looking for good French food in Yountville, go to Bistro Jeanty. If you're just looking for a great meal, go to Redd."

  • "Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. We both had been before and loved the food. This time around the food was disappointing. So sad. Oh well."

    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We have been coming to Bouchon for lunch since it opened and are frequent patrons of its Beverly Hills branch also. Our waiter, Michael, was a delightful and very knowledgeable professional typical of Bouchon waiters. As always, the food was excellent. The only negative was the receptionist, who tried to seat us in an overflow area near the cash register next to the traffic lane from the kitchen. When we asked for a table for two in the bank of empty tables where we always have sat before, she gave us an icy stare and led us to a table there silently. Shortly after, she exacted revenge by placing couples right on both sides of us instead of the usual every-other-table, even though there were empty tables nearby. Point taken."

  • "Best chocolate mousse ever and everything else was really good too. The service was really good and surprisingly the price was the same as every other restaurant, not too expensive at all."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The French cuisine at Bouchon is amazing. From appetizer to dessert (a decadent, thick chocolate mousse) to the impeccable service, everything was excellent."
