Years ago we stopped going to Bouchard’s because, despite our love of the cuisine, we found the service to be painfully slow. Our experience this time was vastly improved. The food was excellent, the wine list terrific and the serve was friendly and efficient but not overly hurried. We shall return!

I've been to Bouchard three times, and it has been an outstanding experience every time. A classic French restaurant with service and ambiance to match the masterfully-executed food. Note that Bouchard offers a convenient parking option for only $7.00 -- well worth taking advantage of, unless you are unusually lucky enough to find a street space. We'll definitely be back.

Bouchard's never disappoints. The food is fantastic with the smoothest, most flavorful sauces. The atmosphere is charming and intimate. And Max is the best! Bouchard's is a must.

Our anniversary actually coincided with Newport restaurant this week. This made Bouchard restaurant a no brainer. The wait staff was professional and personable. Cocktails were great. The appetizers were very good. For entrées we had the sliced steak and the pork cooked in puff pastry. They, along with the vegetables they were served with were delicious! Do not miss the Grand Marnier soufflé for dessert. Because it was our anniversary, we were even treated to a glass of champagne! Lovely dinner. Lovely restaurant.

Bouchard is by far the best experience in fine dining in all of the Newport area. The service is outstanding, the food is not only delicious but presented as an art form, and the level of the entire evening is spectacular. I always treasure my dining at Bouchard.

Always outstanding: food selection, variety and presentation, a wine list that has something for everyone and every course with nice wines by the glass as well, outstanding service from arrival to restaurant to departure. This is our favorite restaurant in all of New England.

Where to begin? Well, the gracious, considerate and consummately well mannered greeting that initiated our introduction to Bouchard set a most agreeable tone, which served as prelude to an exceptional dining experience. With only 765 fast fading characters remaining I will attempt to digress to reflect upon particular highlights of this gustatory wonderland.

In a word, run the menu if one is of a mind to pursue an A.J .Liebling measure of gustatory engagement.

Not a false note was struck, with subtle culinary nuances vibrantly evidenced across a range of toothsomely delectable preparations.

Astute, aware & professional service served to highlight the remarkably elevated standards of restaurant Bouchard.

Bouchard serves as a standard bearer of propriety, gracious manner and impeccable standards.

Gracious service, cosy atmosphere and beautifully presented, delicious food. No wonder it’s such a highly rated restaurant where reservations are a must. We were there midweek and I’d guess off-season (although it was Restaurant Week) and there seemed to be plenty of on-street parking, but parking in their lot a short block away would have been $7. Apparently no charge except for restaurant week. Entry/ waiting area very small, but friendly hostess available to take coats. Once seated, all was perfection. Would highly recommend this gem!

It is our favorite restaurant even though it takes us about 4 hrs to drive there. The food is exquisite and the presentation and service are wonderful. It is a beautiful restaurant and each dish is perfection as are the cocktails and the wine. We love staying at their inn as well. We've met other people who have been fortunate enough to dine there as well. It seems to be very highly regarded by many and for good reason.

We had a wonderful dining experience. The style of the restaurant reminded me and my husband of how important it is to slow down, enjoy the atmosphere, the wine and the food. All were superb. Our waitperson was attentive, knowledgeable, helpful and gracious. (His name is Jared.) Additionally, I requested a nice table in honor of my husband's birthday and this was provided. All-in-all a fantastic evening! Food and wine were divine. Service was tops.

The interior of the restaurant is beautifully done with lots of recessed lighting, White table cloths . The food was excellent and well prepared. The service could not have been better. The maître d’ helped me with the selection of wine to complement their signature re-stuffed lobster dish. While expensive we would definitely go again.
