    Although EVERYTHING was nothing short of superb, your website had a different menu than the Prix Fixe menu that you use exclusively now. Please update your website. We were more than pleased with the choices we made, but my husband was looking forward to your very wonderful escargots as his appetizer, which was on your website menu. The chef outdid herself; all was beautifully presented and equally as delicious! So, the meal did not disappoint!! I would be remiss if I didn't mention Marco. He was such a terrific waiter. He had a sense of humor, was most attentive and paid attention to all the details that set Restaurant Bouchard apart from all others in Newport. We wish you continued success! You've been our favorite "special occasion" restaurant since you opened many years ago.

    We went for the 4-course meal. Excellent. We both enjoyed every course. Good cocktails. Just the right amount of attention from the wait staff. Each course arrived with perfect timing. Excellent wine recommendations. The highlights were the Pâté, monkfish w/ lobster Pernod sauce, seared duck breast, and Gran Marnier Soufflé. Cozy and quiet atmosphere. Nice to see folks dressed well for dinner. Very much looking forward to returning.

    First Class from the moment you open the door. Professional, polite, persons there are to assist you in having a fabulous meal and experience. Any questions re the menu are politely and completely answered. The prix fixe menu is just another fantastic addition. Dan, our waiter is outstanding and his special cocktails, ARE. We have NEVER had anything but incredible food at Bouchard. When you mention it’s a special occasion, they remember. Only negative is parking a block away, but it’s worth it. The desserts (see pics) are beyond anything most people have ever tasted. We’ll return anytime there’s a special situation.

    We went out for my birthday. I have been to Bouchard before. We did the five-course prefix. Each course was wonderful The soup was very flavorful. The mushroom Tart was crispy the salad had cooked pears. The main course for me was the lobster with scallops and my gf had the dover sole. Each was a good portion and paired with blended vegetables the sauce in the sole was a choice white sauce. We ended the meal with coffee ( with heavy cream). The souffle and the chocolate creme Amazing meal for a great price

    I took my wife here over the weekend to celebrate our 10th anniversary. The ambiance is really perfect. Our captain for the evening, Dan, was incredible. He knew everything about the food and wine. And wait til you see him pour a glass of vino for you! This is going to sound kind of silly, however it’s something important that is often over looked… the chairs. Not only are they really cool and swanky looking, but they are so comfortable. The food, was one of the best meals I’ve had. I had the tuna tartare to start, while my wife had goat cheese filled ravioli. The main course I had a pork tenderloin with roasted red peppers and spinach in a puff pastry with a sauce that I would have licked off the plate if I could have…. Wifey had the filet and she could have cut it with a spoon…..dessert was out of this world. I wanted a PERFECT evening for my wife and I and Bouchard’s did NOT disappoint. They live up to every single review they get, and if you see a bad one…. which I find impossible….skip right over it. Dan and the rest of the staff delivered EXACTLY what my wife deserves…. The most wonderful , and romantic evening I could have ever hoped for. We will absolutely celebrate another special occasion there without question

    Of course this place was outstanding. We went during restaurant week and unfortunately we were only limited to the restaurant week menu, but it was still amazing. Absolutely perfect food, outstanding service and lovely atmosphere. My only disappointment was that they allowed some people to be seated that were wearing jeans and sneakers. Before we arrived we were called by the restaurant and reminded of the dress code, so we took it seriously and I was expecting the restaurant to do the same. Not a big deal but I would have certainly wore jeans and sneakers too haha

    We were celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary. It was Newport Restaurant Week with a prix fixe menu, but the Dover Sole was still available. The food was spectacular; the service impeccable. This is probably the top restaurant in Rhode Island.

    I had been trying to get reservations at Bouchard all summer and never was able to- good for the restaurant but bad for me! When I saw they were participating in the off season restaurant week I was happy to finally get a reservation. We had a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding, beautifully presented and delicious. We chose a very nice bottle of wine that was very fairly priced. The most important thing is that the service was excellent, everyone was attentive and Marco was a joy to converse with. We didn't feel rushed which sometimes you do in other restaurants during restaurant week. We look forward to returning this summer with friends.

He was extremely knowledgeable about the dishes and the pairing. All were not only beautifully plated but so delicious. Especially the Mousse Chaude au Fromage Bleu We did the 5 course menu. We definitely enjoyed the experience and plan to be back
