Bouchard Restaurant and Inn
Due to the style of our restaurant, it would be inappropriate for children under the age of seven (7).
At Bouchard Restaurant, a warm relaxed ambiance and gracious welcome signals your arrival. The restaurant serves fine French cuisine in a 1785 Georgian-style house.
Second time my wife and I ate at Bouchard. Food and service were terrific both times. The grand marnier souffle was fabulous!
What a way to celebrate our anniversary. Our server Daniel does an outstanding job. Paced perfectly and very attentive. Ambiance is great in the fine dining restaurant. We started with a nice bottle of white French wine. My wife had the escargot and I had the soup special. Both were very good. My wife had the Dover Sole and I had the lobster stuffed with scallops. Both were to die for. Of course we finished with a soufflé. Over the top.
Great place to eat with great service.
They use the church parking lot up the street so get your pass at the front door.
We love your restaurant! Captain Dan was our server and he was phenomenal. We brought our friends with us who had never dined there before and they loved it as well. We were celebrating my friends retirement.
The service was above and beyond. Our waiter was so kind. We had a wonderful experience and the food was delicious!
Our favorite restaurant when we visit Newport. Always a special experience - food taste and preparation is flawless, service is just right, there when you need them but not hovering, ambiance is relaxed elegant and noise level allows for quiet conversation.
The entire experience was amazing. The food was delicious and the service was beyond outstanding!! Cannot wait to go back.
Outstanding! Eating at Bouchard’s is a dining experience. The servers are so attentive and gracious. The menu has something for every palette. Excellent cocktails and extensive wine list.
If you only have one opportunity to eat in Newport, Bouchard’s should be your first choice. It is one of the best restaurants in Newport.
Excellent food and service in a nice Inn like atmosphere. Certainly one of best restaurants in Newport. Make reservations early.
The meal and service were outstanding! The individual soufflé was to-die-for!!!
Ambiance was good, bu expected a little more in that respect. We had a very loud group of four women near our table, which distracted from the experience.
Absolutely superb!! Everything was amazing, the food was perfect and the service was fantastic!
This was a birthday celebration and everything was perfect! Bouchard does a fantastic job anytime we have dined there and during Newport Restaurant Week this year was no exception. Our group had 4 different appetizers and 4 different entrees - we all were more than happy with our choices! The presentation is brilliantly artistic and the quality and flavors of the cuisine superb! And the desserts were exceptional as well. The hospitality of the staff is genuine and commendable, everyone who served us did so with grace and skill. All were truly hoping their guests were having a memorable culinary experience and we did! Thank you!
The filet mignon melted in my mouth. The raspberry souffle was wonderful. The service was great but I was surprised they did not offer the restaurant week prices. However I will be back on my next visit to Newport.
Our dinner at Bouchard was fantastic! The team of service members that attended us were polite and attentive. I can't remember all of their names but our main waiter for the evening was Max and he was nothing short of spectacular. My wife and I were there celebrating as newlyweds and our experience at Bouchard made the night that much more memorable. I would definitely recommend to friends and we do plan on going back!
Only complaint. Womens toilet very low for older people.
Always an amazing meal! Service on par and an overall wonderful dining experience!
One of the best restaurants in Newport. Always great food and an interesting menu.
We had a very nice time and meal for Restaurant week.
The portions were plentiful and delicious.
The only comment I’ll add is I wish the wine list would have been offered. I was asked what kind of wine I liked, and the head waiter decided one for me. So instead of purchasing 2 drinks each, we would have chosen a bottle of wine instead.
We came for restaurant week as it was our first time trying and they always book up for this week. We ordered the salad, lobster bisque, I paid extra for the lobster dish, steak, and shared desserts. The salad was good but average, the lobster bisque was good but heavy on the garlic. As someone who loves garlic I enjoyed even though my heartburn didn’t. Entrees went south. Steak was pretty average and the lobster dish that I paid 15 dollars extra for consisted of three pieces of lobster and maybe two who scallops. I kept picking at the shell looking for more. The vegetables were piped like 90s style banquet with a star tip. Kind of felt like everything was pre made and warmed to order. Soufflé was good for dessert but the trio was chocolate shells from a local food purveyor and a small cream puff and apple filo.
We were very excited to try as we are locals but with a 180 dollar bill we would rather go elsewhere. Also note service was extremely slow but thankfully we were in no rush and our server was nice once we got our bill.
$50 prix fixe is a good value, food is authentically French and servers are friendly.
Always outstanding and a special treat! I look forward to Bouchard's at least a couple of times a year!
As always, exquisite! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent food, excellent service and excellent dining experience. My family and I went to Bouchards during Newport Restaurant Week and by all measures this was our favorite restaurant!
The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. This is the second time I've been there with friends for Newport Restaurant Week, and at the end of the meal one of theose friends asked me, "Same time next year?"
Bouchard is our favorite restaurant in Newport. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. Their souffles are amazing. We always have a wonderful time when we dine there.
Great service, excellent food. Although it’s striving for classic, timeless, the Decor could use some freshening. Lovely experience.
We usually visit the Bouchard Restaurant when in town and as always we enjoy the ambiance, the food choices and truly a great place to dine on a special occasion. The presentation is an art form in itself making any occasion so special and a memorable dining experience.
Excellent Good and Excellent service!
We were at Bouchard to enjoy their restaurant week menu and it did not disappoint. We were especially pleased with the Salmon Tartare and the House Pate.
Max, our waiter, is phenomenal. So pleasant, accommodating, efficient, pure class!
went during restaurant week, was seated at table with partition from the remainder of the room.
Food spot on.
Simply the best restaurant in Newport and I have been to all of the top rated establishments in the city.
Fabulous in every way!
The whole experience was perfect. This was our first time here. Reserving a table was easy, the walk from the parking lot wasn't bad. The people who work there are great. The drinks were good, the food was perfect. Dessert perfect as well.
Romantic, cozy, delicious, and first rate service. I didn’t want to leave & would definitely return!
This was one of several trips to Bouchard over a few years. The decor has not been updated, the appetizers and entrees were delicious, the dessert mundane. Service not as crisp as past experience. Hopefully this was just an infrequent off night
Awesome food and service!!!
Best meal in a VERY long time. I am a classically trained chef / hospitality professional. The experience and cuisine this establishment provides is something rarely found any longer in the US. Bouchard is a hidden gem. Providing a truly masterful dining experience.
Food was excellent. Every bite of dinner was a different taste. Food was hot and delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to those who have a flare for fine dining
Bouchards has been a staple restaurant for us everytime we come to Newport.
The food is amazing and this past Saturday night was incredible. Our server Dam was outstanding as usual.
We can’t wait until next time.
Wonderful meal in every respect. Creative menu with beautiful presentations. Top-notch service. One of the best meals we have had in years.
