We live in the area and cannot believe we’ve never had dinner at Bouchard‘s. It was our first time and it certainly won’t be our last! It was a beautiful atmosphere and the food was excellent. Every single dish we had was awesome- our plates were clean. The service was tremendous especially our waiter Jed.

The food, service was all outstanding. I had the baked stuffed lobster, my boyfriend had the veal, all recommended by the Captain. For appetizers, we had the lobster bisque which was light and creamy and the lobster and asparagus in a puff pastry. We had the carpaccio as well for a cold appetizer. We ended the meal with a perfect soufflé.

This has become an annual tradition to celebrate February birthdays. We are never disappointed -- food, service, ambiance always excellent. Once again Dan was perfect as our server and he has become a valued part of the tradition. We don't hesitate to tell friends that Bouchard is easily the best restaurant in Newport.

This was without a doubt the best dining experience my wife and I have ever had. Everything we ordered was absolutely superb, the service was impeccable, and the ambiance was perfect. The chef is an absolute master at her craft. I could not recommend a restaurant more strongly than o recommend Bouchard - absolutely fantastic!

We always go to Bouchards when we visit Newport and once again we were not disappointed. The swordfish was marvelous as was the Dover sole. The sauces are always delicious and service was attentive as usual.

Creative but still familiar French cuisine with outstanding service. Pork and lamb dishes are to die for. Pate is the best we ever tasted. Rest of menu is great. Carefully curated wine list. Wait staff is extremely knowledgeable and attentive but not hovering. Fantastic special occasion place although we try to go there more frequently!

Took awhile to get a Saturday night reservation but well worth the wait. Everything that they serve is a work of art and the service is exceptional. Although the food was delicious, I’ve had better food at more casual locations but it’s really more about the whole dining experience. A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

Celebrated my fiancé birthday with her four girl friends. The food was 4 Star Michelin quality. Excellent wine list. I kindly requested a small all white birthday cake. They honored the request and delivered the most spectacular cake decorated with Strawberry's sliced to appear as blossoming flowers. Dan our waiter was incredible at handling the women. Best and most enjoyable party ever.

Quiet, first-class food, service and setting. Dan was excellent waiter; more like your personal advisor. Entire waitstaff was excellent. Not inexpensive but great value. Have paid much more in NYC for much less. Thanks to the Bouchard’s for a great evening.

We'll always have Paris, they say. Buy luckily, we'll always have Bouchard as well! As good as a dining experience gets. A little formality lifts the ordinary experience into something special. It is just the right amount that has made our numerous visits to Bouchard memorable and happy ones. It doesn't get any better than this, in every respect!

My wife and I love to go to Newport during the Christmas season to enjoy the town when its not so busy.
When we do, we love to treat ourselves to the beauty and delicious elegance that is Bouchard Restaurant!
The quality and presentation of the dishes the chef creates are always something special. And for the ultimate indulgence, you have to have a soufflé for desert! We will be back for more!!!
