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.

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
ever had.

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.

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!!

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!

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.

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.
