Perfect food, great service, normal (although aging) decor, but for the price and outstanding reputation, we had hoped for a more exciting “soul” behind the overall experience, especially considering the incredible local dining choices. We would definitely recommend the food and service, if money is not a concern! The deserts and all sauces were especially phenomenal.
My wife and I ordered the re-stuffed lobster and rack of lamb, both amazing and the soufflé dessert was the perfect finish to the meal. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. He suggested the perfect wines for our entrées. We would definitely go back again...truly a wonderful dining experience.
First time ever and definitely will not b our last. Extraordinary experience in fine dining even down to the music. A must destination.
It was our first time at Bouchard and it was highly recommended by good friends.
We loved your restaurant!!! Great wine list,
cod was outstanding and our waiter Daniel made the night just perfect!!!
Probably the best meal and overall dining experience I have ever had!! Highly recommend.
Our favorite restaurant that we dined for the entire stay of our trip to Newport. Exceptional food and service!
There is great pride in the food and service at this idyllic French restaurant. The waitstaff is friendly and highly knowledgeable about the menu and wine pairings. It was a perfect meal. I look forward to traveling to Newport and dining there, again.
Excellent as always from start to finish/ great service, professionalism and excellent food.
Another outstanding meal. Food and service never disappointing.
As always, the food and service was exceptional. Owned by the chef and his wife, the dining is always exceptional. A great wait staff, especially Danny, who's knowledge of the food and wine enhances the experience
Food was amazing. However, we ordered a bottle of Opus One and the waiter did not decant the bottle before serving.
We come to Newport every summer and always eat at Bouchard's. It is our favorite place to dine.
The meal is always very good and the finale which is a grand mariner souffle is one of the best I have
Everything about our experience was top-notch, food, service, ambiance. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and they even wrote Bon Anniversary on the dessert plate. It all made for a perfect evening!
Excellent food and service. You can never go wrong there.
As always, a highlight of our annual Newport Music Festival indulgence. The first of four nights dining at Bouchard’s this year. It’s where we take the musicians to show our appreciation, and they always love it.
Best gourmet food in Newport, hands down. Salads with Roquefort and pear appetizers and asparagus with lobster in puff pastry were great starters. Sole was perfect with the best sorrel sauce ever. Fillet with Brie, and restuffed lobster entrees were also outstanding. Grand mariniere souffle was a presentation to remember, and mousse au chocolate en gateau was perfect. Lovely Loire valley wine to accompany meal. Service a little standoffish but professional.
The food is to die for, the service is great, and in summary the experience was wonderful! I would come here everyday if I could.
Awesome food and service! I requested a table with a view on Open Table and they provided the same. The wait staff was very attentive. We noted that we were celebrating an anniversary and they served us 2 complimentary glasses of champagne and a recognition dessert. I highly recommend this establishment!
We went here to celebrate our 32 wedding anniversary. From what I had read online, we were very nervous about what we were wearing and if we would be allowed in -mostly for my husband as it was very hot outside and he did not want to wear slacks. So I had emailed them before hand - no response. I called and left a message - which they did return a couple of days later and we also stopped in the restaurant and questioned them again. So we felt OK going to dinner, but we were a little disappointed to see a woman wearing jeans and a man with sneakers on! And only because we spent so much time and energy on this!!
Other than that....the service was outstanding! The food was very good. I had the baked stuffed lobster and my husband had the filet of beef. Both meals were presented beautifully! We did opt for the soufflé fo dessert. We both were a little disappointed by this, sad to say! But that just might not have been to our liking. Again, the presentation was beautiful! It just didn’t appeal to our taste.
Service was top-notch, which made the dining experience that much more special! Max was our waiter, and he was very attentive!!
All in all, it was a nice way to celebrate our special occasion! And the complimentary champagne they served us for our anniversary was very much appreciated and tasted fabulous!!
I love this restaurant! I highly recommend saving room for the Grand Marnier soufflé
Sent son and fiancé where they had another fabulous evening, they loved it. Second or third visit. They were treated like royalty and loved every morsel of food. The service as always was exceptional.
As usual we had an outstanding dinner! Service, food and overall experience was great.
We always go here when in Newport, it’s an outstanding restaurant with talented people as chefs and servers. Professional but friendly. And we know many people who feel the same way. Make a reservation early because it’s very popular and not that big. But go!
Always an excellent experience. What dining should be all about. Sophisticated, quite and relaxing. Excellent kitchen, beautiful presentation...never rushed. Dining, not just eating.
Wonderful food can’t wait too return the dessert was great wine was excellent. We had a great time for my husband birthday
The very best in every way. Our captain Dan was exceptionally attentive.
Fine dining at it’s best. Was greeted by a friendly hostess when arriving. Seated at a very comfortable table. Max our waiter was outstanding knew the menu inside and out. Presented each dish with pride. Will definitely tell others about this restaurant if traveling to Newport.
Bouchard came highly recommended and did not disappoint. The food, service and atmosphere combined to make Bouchard the perfect setting for an out-of-town anniversary celebration. While worthy of a special occasion, the amazing food should make Bouchard a part of every food lover’s regular rotation.
Butter and my beef tasted like the refrigerator. Soup and dessert was very good. I was disappointed after reading and hearing great things about this place...
The food was incredible. The atmosphere was quiet and romantic. Definitely would go again if in the area. Have not had many meals in my lifetime this good. We ordered the duck and the lobster followed by creme puffs and the apple tart. Amazing.
I was disappointed that they did nothing special for our very special occasion. Service was not on par with the quality of the restaurant.
We celebrated our 10th Wedding anniversary in Newport and this was a recommendation from a few locals. Every single thing about this place exceeded our expectations! The staff was so amazing! The food was plated artistically and tasted heavenly! I can not possibly say enough good things about our experience here. You MUST experience this if you're in the area!
The food was excellently prepared and presented. Service was also very good and attentive. We were initially seated near a table with a party of six who were very loud. The owner,(chef's wife) accommodated our request to move to another table which was much quieter.
Dessert plate had "bon anniversaire" written in chocolate to acknowledge our anniversary celebration.
Would highly recommend.
Wonderful food, grand menu, beautifully plated and Max the gracious and knowledgeable Captain offers flawless service. His young assistant shows much the same talents in the making.
Would not miss dining there on my once yearly trip to Newport. Thank you
One of my top restaurants .
Our server Dan was so knowledgeable in regards to our wine selection and food.
I would strongly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
What can I say. It was truly a great experience from the food to the staff to the wonderful decor. If you’re in Newport don’t miss this place. Make your reservation early as you won’t get in at the last minute. It’s worth the wait
The food was wonderful. Portions were larger than expected for a French restaurant.
Lovely place. Well run, excellent food, service. A restaurant for grownups wanting to have conversation. Charming.
All around great. Food service and people very very good.
