Celebrating being fully vaccinated in the best way possible! I'm astonished how Bouchard's maintains its consistent level of excellence on all fronts. The pate was delicious, the duck with it's unusual coffee crust reduction superb, and the vegetables gorgeous, tasty, and perfectly cooked. All with perfect service in charming ambiance.

The service was excellent the waiter knew the menu and had recommendations. Service precise and the waiter Marco was personable and knowledgeable. The menu at Bouchard’s is outstanding and difficult to make a choice. I had the lobster stuffed with scallops which was absolutely delicious. My wife had the halibut special which she thought was fabulous. We have eaten here many times and never been disappointed.

The food portion is very small, as in need another meal small. That said, it was excellent. The halibut was 20 minutes off the boat and you could taste it in every bite. Crime brûlée was fantastic.

Second time for us. Amazing attention to detail from warm host greeting to subsequent dining experience. Food is always exemplary and authentic: quickly recognizable upscale French with undeniable Newport aquatic influence. Max is attentive, courteous, insightful and a master of the pour. Will be back soon.

Excellent service and very accommodating menu. Each meal is tailored to the guests dietary needs.

The food itself takes the guest on a journey with each bite of flavor. French 75 was refreshing with a perfect balance of sparkling wine and gin.

Restaurant also provides complimentary parking up the block.

Monday night 5:45pm reservations and it was not busy at that hour. Early enough to find street parking. Nice, formal atmosphere with proper dress attire. No children helps keep the atmosphere quieter and more intimate. Perfect date atmosphere! Servers were very pleasant and attentive. Meal price was as expected. Appetizers, Entrees and Desert (no alcohol drinks) and the meal came out to $145. Everything was excellent and well plated. Portions were perfectly sized. The Cod special and Scallop plate were fantastic. The deconstructed chocolate cake and creme brûlée were amazing. We were very pleased.

We LOVED this place! We stayed in the Evie room for 3 nights. It was a wonderful 1 bedroom suite with a cute kitchenette. The bed was sooo comfortable! We received a yogurt parfait and pastry each morning. We also had water, milk and OJ in our fridge each day that was complimentary. We felt safe the entire time we were there and the owners were very helpful in making some suggestions of things to do in the area. Would stay here again since it's right in the heart of Newport on Thames Street!

We dined at the restaurant our first night there. We were promptly seated and taken care of right away. We split their goat cheese ravioli appetizer which was so fresh and delicious. We also had their coffee crusted duck breast (cooked perfectly) and soufflé for dessert. The cocktails were also good and it was a very romantic spot for a date night. Would eat here again in a heartbeat!

Anniversary Dinner- Greeting at entrance cordial and warm. Seating and table excellent.
Server - excellent. Knew menu and preparations. Made good suggestions. Very friendly and competent. Entire meal wonderful. Soufflés best ever. You can review online menu to see offerings and have time think about what to choose. The wait staff can help with descriptions of food and preparations.
We go to Bouchard every time we are in Newport. The dining experience is second to none. You will not be disappointed.

The lobster bisque was creamy, rich and full of flavor, my filet mignon was perfect and the rolls were fresh and tasty. Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and tuned into our every need. I was served champagne in honor of my birthday. It was a perfect dining experience.

I dine here often and it's always superb. But we had a waitress who had an attitude with me when I pleasantly asked her if she was French as I detected a beautiful accent. She flashed me a glare and said no Romania. From then on my friend noticed how rude she was to me.. especially when my souflee came and she was carelessly pouring the creme anglais on it splashing me. I'm sorry but you could tell it was deliberately. I moved back as she was doing it and she still continued to get it on me

Outstanding experience. The presentation was awesome and the service couldn’t have been better!
Marco was informative and attentive. We enjoyed the escargot, crab salad, restuffed lobster and rack of lamb. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection. This was our first visit, and it won’t be our last!
