The too perfect bistro
Expertly prepared bistro food in a wonderful setting. Perfect service. Too perfect, as it misses the rough and tumble of a real bistro. Pricey, but value for the money.

Just what we wanted/ expected
We came up from San Diego to celebrate a 30th birthday and to experience one of TK's restaurants. It's been a dream of ours for years now. The prices were a bit of a stretch but we knew that going in and we also knew it was worth it for the phenomenal level of ingredients used. The level of service was impeccable with the sommelier making our night. He was extremely knowledgable and genuine. No stuffiness about him. He started up a conversation with us as we were waiting for our table which immediately made us feel comfortable in our settings. All the dishes were incredibly fresh and executed well. In the end, we felt like this was one step closer to eating at TFL even if it's still miles away.

Always reliable for a fun, flavorful and enjoyable brunch. Interesting selections and attentive service. Just a bit loud sometimes.

Having been to The French Laundry, we decided to give Bouchon a try. They did not disappoint. The waiter provided excellent service. It was a lot less formal than The French Laundry (which is more my style anyway) but the food was delicious. My salmon had a perfect sear and the dessert, dark chocolate, salted caramel vanilla jocunde was to die for!!!! I wanted to LICK my plate! I would definitely go back :-)

I cannot think of a single negative thing about Bouchon.
Went for lunch with a friend. Beautiful decor. Professional, knowledgable and FRIENDLY staff. Reasonable prices. Oh, and the food was absolutely amazing. My two suggestions: The Petite Plateau (small seafood platter) and the Chilled Corn soup (if available, it was part of a special).

Wonderful food and a lively mbience
I had the fish special and my husband had veal. The fish was the BEST I have ever had, bar none, seasoned perfectly, hot and crispy skin. The wine list was wonderful. We enjoyed everything from the fantastic bread to the delicious salads. Our server was attentive and amiable, without the haughty attitude found in most BH restaurants. She was top notch. The noise level was a bit high but there was an Italian event out on the open garden adjacent to Bouchon so that could have contributed to the noisy atmosphere. We plan on returning to this excellent retaurant.

Great Food, Service and Setting
This was our first time at their Los Angeles location. We had been to their other location in New York. The food was excellent. I had the salmon, and a lot of our party had the Rainbow Trout. We had a party of six, and the staff was extremely accommodating. The restaurant was very gracious in honoring our request to sit on their terrace, which provided a beautiful night view of the adjacent Montage Hotel. I would definitely recommend for a special night out, Romantic occasion, or just getting together with good friends.

Fried Chicken? Yum!!
Some of the best fried chicken ever! No one else does "crunch" like Bouchon.

Bouchon is perfect on every level. Food, service and ambiance are, well, perfect.

The main dining room is stunning, the service excellent, the food superb! Our server Neora was beyond brilliant, knowledgeable about all the food and wine. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a remarkable dining experience

made my son's 16th birthday amazing
We LOVE LOVE LOVE this restaurant. My husband is a food and wine snob, and this place has amazing quality food and an excellent wine list. Enjoying the experience is important to me as is a reasonable price, so I love the ambience, the great service and the reasonable prices for the amazing quality of the food. My son is a teenage boy and he loves being able to dress casually, get the best hamburger in LA and being treated like an adult. This is our special occasion place. We come here often and have NEVER been disappointed - the one place in LA we can say that. My son chose this place for his 16th birthday for all of those reasons an we had a great time - as always. Also, you get free parking next door in the city lot!

Love Bouchon! One of my favorite
Love Bouchon! One of my favorite restaurants. Everything is amazing! We've dined there several times with my kids and we love the brunch. They love the brioche French toast and assorted pastries. The mussels is fantastic and they have an awesome quiche! Have never had a bad meal here and the service is top notch.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed dinner here for our first wedding anniversary, and the service was impeccable. Our server was friendly but not overly solicitous, and was always ready with excellent recommendations. Every dish we tried was prepared perfectly (I'm still craving more of the chicken liver mousse), and dessert was exquisite.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
A favorite French Bistro
A visit to Bouchon is the next best thing to being in a lively upscale bistro in France. We love it all but our favorite thing to order is the Endive Salad, Seafood Plateau and the Profiteroles. The Champagne and Wine by the glass choices are excellent too.
9/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Just as delicious as I remember
Thank you. Everything was perfect..from the Host, complimenting me on my dress..to a comfortable table and warm Waiter and staff.
Can't wait to return.

The setting and food were excellent as was the service.

we dine at Bouchon atleast once a month. mostly to celebrate special occasions and also can't miss the Adhoc fried chicken nights. we always get exceptional service. the food is always perfect and delicious. this is our traditional monthly celebratory go-to spot.
I highly recommend Bouchon to anyone who loves delicious food, fantastic service, amazing wines, incredible ambience and just a consistently perfect evening. whether on a date night, with family, maybe even with the kids- it's my favorite restaurant.

The King of Chicken
Anyone who hasn't gone to Bouchon for Monday night Ad Hoc chicken hasn't lived. This should be on everyone's Bucket List.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
nice atmosphere, airy and bright. lots of business lunches. food is good, but not great.
service was excellent from the waitstaff. strangely the hostess gave us the worst table by the entrance and told us other tables were reserved, uh... we also had a reservation (was it because we weren't in business attire?) the restaurant was only 20-30% full at the time of our arrival, and got busy but never filled up completely throughout our lunch.

While my group enjoyed the
While my group enjoyed the experience, we would not repeat it or recommend it without warning to a friend. It is in a beautiful room. Service was great and the waiter was helpful in choosing a wine within budget as most of the list was every expensive. The goat cheese salad had a wonderful red wine dressing. The steamed mussels were excellent and served with crisp, hot and salted fries. Very tasty! While the lamb and braised green were excellent, the portion was skimpy and no one liked the potatoes. The noise level was horrible and this is the main reason we wouldn't return. We were at a round table for 4 and often had to repeat what we were saying. It seemed like we spent the entire evening shouting to be heard. Too bad!

Delicious Food - Fantastic Service
We have eaten at the other Bouchon and at Per Se. Mr. Keller, you have done it again. The food was fabulous and so was the service. We started with two signature cocktails recommended by our server. We had the bib lettuce salad which was perfectly dressed. Then we had the steak and frites and the stuffed trout. Both prepared perfectly and both delicious. We were served crusty delicious bread. We are trying to cut back but ate the entire thing. And dessert to die for. We were seated outside so we had a wonderful view and were in a private little bay. We will make it a must go to when we are in Los Angeles. Thank you.

Great service, friendly staff
Went for Ad Hoc's fried chicken on a late night. Service was excellent. Only thing that was a little short changed were the sides.

We had a lovely lunch at this Bevely Hills hot spot and enjoyed it very much. We would recommend it highly.

Great place for celebrations
We've only dined at Bouchon for celebrations (i.e. milestone birthdays and anniversaries). However, it truly is a great place to go just to enjoy an excellent meal. Bouchon's service and food is consistently excellent. We arrived a little early, so we sat at the bar and had a cocktail and oysters. The bartender recommended a "Widow's Kiss" cocktail that was excellent. My husband had a perfectly dry martini. We moved to our table and enjoyed our meal and wine. After our meal, we had a coffee and they brought a little dessert in celebration of our anniversary.
When we were seated, the hostess came to our table to pour us a glass of champagned, compiments of friend's who knew we were dining at Bouchon. Nice touch!

Paris in Beverly Hills
Bouchon is a true Bistro right here in the middle of Beverly Hills, all that is missing is the language! The service is great and with waiters that actually care about what your want and your tastes, it makes a big difference. The selections are great and not overly ambitious and the raw materials that make upo the dishes are actually best quality.
Its a place to go for good food, moderate to high prices but excellent value and great service.

Good and odd
Great food. Great service. Great wine. Too loud. Too many crying babies weird location and access entry to restaurant. Bartender was distracted trying to get a date with guest. Otherwise fabulous very LA

We love Bouchon and always have a wonderful dining experience. If you can make it to Ad Hoc Fried Chicken Night, you will be in for a real treat! Best fried chicken ever!

Brings Left Bank to Beverly Hills
The bread. The bread. The bread. Pâté. Service-- perfect. The atmosphere is accurate French Bistro with Thomas Keller's blessing touches. At our table we had goat cheese salad , seafood, steak frites, several appetizers, wine ( by glass). The bill for three was $180. Worth every dollar. We already are planning our next visit I expected a lot from the creator of The French Laundry. Was not disappointed.

Great Experience/Lived Up to Expect
Bouchon Beverly Hills more than lives up to the expectations associated with a Thomas Keller restaurant. The food is perfect and the room is exactly right. But what really impressed me was the service. My wife and I went to Bouchon for her birthday... and we brought our 17 month old son. We strongly considered canceling our reservation. We were worried that the restaurant would frown of bringing such a young toddler. And we didn't want to ruin anyone else's experience either. But the staff was so accommodating and understanding. There was even another toddler at a table near ours. And somehow, our son mostly behaved through the whole meal and we actually were able to eat. The staff was excellent and played a major role in our great night.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Bouchon has fantastic food. Nothing we have tasted was less than exceptional and the trout dish was simply the best fish I have ever had. Add a super professional staff and great atmosphere for a perfect dining experience.

Great place to meet up with friends
Our friend who was visiting from Japan wanted to visit Bouchon. The six of us met for lunch and had a great time. The food as expected was awesome. We shared the salmon rillette, chicken liver mousse, duck confit, steak frites, chicken paillard and chocolate cake. Everything was fantastic. We especially loved the service. Our server and back waiters were so attentive and friendly. We never had to ask for more bread or crostinis...it just appeared on the table. My favorite was the rillette and chicken liver mousse. Both had incredible texture and flavor. I would go back just for that. I highly recommend Bouchon and would go back again

Great French Restaurant
So enjoyed this restaurant, the staff is friendly and helpful. The food is authentic French cuisine, I had the chicken and my sister had the flat iron steak, both dishes were delicious! We will be back soon!

Fried Chicken Night at Bouchon
Finally tried Fried Chicken Night at Bouchon. It was great! Seems like a fancy place to eat this casual food, but it works. This is definitely a must for fried chicken lovers.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic food and wine!
We went to Bouchon for my husbands birthday - we ordered a glass of Bordeaux and a Beaujolais - yum! I ordered a saucisson wrapped in brioche for my entree which had pickled vegetables and Dijon mustard - the combo of flavors was divine. My husband ordered the frisée salad also very tasty. For our plats we both ordered the steak frites however I ordered the less expensive flat iron while he ordered the $50 rib eye - ironically mine was much more tender! I got the herbed butter which is so creamy and goes perfectly with the steak. For dessert they brought a little bouchon with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a candle for my husbands bday - so cute! We also ordered the creme caramel & the apple galette - the apple galette is so tasty!

Wonderful dining experience
Made a reservation for Thanksgiving for 10:00pm. It was the earliest I could find so we went. When we showed up we found out the reservation was for the night before! They had stopped serving at 9:00pm. We were about to turn and leave, and I mentioned I was so disappointed because I was so looking forward to eating there, that the maitre d said he would check with the kitchen to see if they were still set up so they could take us. He came back and said they could accommodate us! We both ordered the Thanksgiving meal. It was amazing! Best Thanksgiving meal I have had in years! Even my friend who is a picky eater and not a foodie loved the meal! So thankful to the staff for accommodating us! Made our Thanksgiving!

Turkey Day Dinner
We went to Bouchon as this was the first time they were open for Thanksgiving. We opted for the Prime Rib as there was no more stuffing (our reservation was late 8:45) and it was quite delicious. It was the perfect amount of food as normally on Thanksgiving we all stuff ourselves silly.
We will certainly go back for other holidays.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first time eating at Bouchon. it was the PERFECT French bistro - great food, great wine list (French and domestic). We opted to eat all appetizers and we were not disappoitned - salad, onion soup, duck confit (a huge portion), pate, and the special porchetta. Wine and desserts were also fabulous My only criticism is that I think they need to get rid of one of the banquette tables so that there is a little more room inbetween tables. I know that they are trying to look like an authentic French bistro, but for my tastes, I don't want to feel as if I'm dining WITH the people next to me. I could hear all of their conversations - it took away from the experience for me.
