As it was our second experience here, it was anything but phenomenal. Our favorite meal. Our favorite place. You want to have THE experience dining, you go to Bouchard. Their staff is amazing , how they treat you is what you dream every dining experience to be. I cannot express enough about this place but it is our staple end of the trip dining experience. We will always eat here anytime we visit Newport. Enjoy!

P.S. Food- amazing. Eat SLOWLY, enjoy every bite. You have so many flavors hitting your palat, live in the moment when you dine here. Amazing.

The food is one of the best in Newport. The dessert souffle is a must try. Food was perfection. We also stayed in the inn. Service was excellent. Breakfast in the morning was great. Location is amazing. Some mild noise but when your right on Thames it's expected. The Inn provided some things to help. Definitely stay here!

We went for a special occasion and it was GREAT to see Newport so alive again!
We were greeted kindly and were quickly seated. Dan was once again our server. He was wonderful as usual, very warm, knowledgeable and professional. He is an asset to the restaurant. He’s one of finest waiters anywhere, on a level of the best from any country. Sadly, the support staff was not not on a level anywhere near Dan. Uninterested, curt and unfriendly. This was disappointing because this is the person who presents/servers the outstanding fare that’s so beautifully prepared by chef Bouchard. It set a mood for the evening that was unwelcoming… sad, for what has always been such a exceptional experience in the past.

I can’t say enough about Bouchard restaurant. Not only is the food absolutely wonderful every single time but the staff are very competent and professional. Over the years they’ve actually come to feel like friends as well. The chef is very accomplished, the dining room is comfortable and welcoming. I took a couple with me who had never been there before and they were totally blown away by the whole thing. It was their anniversary and it was made special for them. Do not hesitate to go to this restaurant.

Experience start to finish was A+. Atmosphere was perfect for a romantic dinner. Escargot is a must. Ordered another after we finished the first. Waiter was 1000% knowledgeable about the entire menu. Owner was working along with this amazing team. Can’t say enough about our experience. Try it out! ~Rick & Jihae :-)
