Ce restaurant tenu par un chef français est annoncé comme N1 sur Trip Advisor.
Certes, le cadre est cosy, le service est correct, la nourriture est bonne.
Mais....la cuisine est beaucoup trop marquée année 80: beaucoup trop de sauce épaisse et lourde, la purée présentée à la poche à douille.....
Honnêtement, à l’heure des bouillons, des émulsions, le chef pourrait faire évoluer sa cuisine sur quelque chose de plus actuel, plus léger. La purée pourrait être présentée sous forme de quenelle par exemple.
Bien sûr, tout n’est pas dans la présentation. Il y a le goût aussi et les plats sont bons et goûteux. Mais bon, on aimerait ne pas avoir l’impression de dîner dans un restau de province qui ne s’est pas renouvelé depuis 30 ans!

Excellent all-around--top notch food, service, atmosphere. Each dish was unique, and the sauces were exquisite---in everything from the tuna tartar to the profiteroles. No heavy dishes here--and absolutely not pretentious at all. Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy a well-prepared meal with exceptional attention to detail.

authentic haute cuisine. excellent service, creative & reasonable wine list, the best martini ever, and a friendly, warm ambience on a freezing midwinter evening. it is a credit to bouchard's reputation that the dining room was filled because newport at this time of the year is usually deadsville. this was my birthday dinner, and it had a surprise ending. maxim, the maître d'hôtel, is the son of roger putier, the master french chef who brought modern french cuisine to newport in 1975. bravissimo to the bouchards for keeping newport's culinary tradition alive!

Bouchard never disappoints. The chef is an artist and a wizard. Every mouthful was simply scrumptious. The meal was exquisite...one of the best we have ever eaten. Service was superb and atmoshere was charming. Fabulous place for foodies or anyone. We adore it.

We had a fine experience here but nothing special. The food was fairly good (we had the steak, the salmon salad and the grand marnier soufflé) but certainly not great. We were also initially seated in a kind of corridor/hallway despite having booked well in advance and having indicated that it was a special occasion. I would not return and in Newport, if I return, I will stick to more modest fare.

Amazing from start to finish. The staff was wonderful. The food was outstanding. Started with a French martini-one of the best I have ever had, first course was beef carpaccio-so tender and flavorful, second course was an endive salad that was delectable, third course was the duck breast - which came our more cooked than I expected was so tender and delicious that I got what it was prepared the way it was, last course was a grand marmite soufflé. Not one thing to complain about. Additionally, the wine Max picked was wonderful and absolutely within our price range. I would recommend Bouchard to anyone.

Bouchard is a great choice for a really good dinner. The cuisine is authentically french without being staid. The food is really delicious and well prepared. Service is attentive but not intrusive. At a recent birthday dinner, everyone loved their meal and the whole experience.
Worth a trip and getting a little more dressed up to match the ambiance of this lovely place.
