Would have loved to give all 5 stars and if could would give 4.5! Wonderful meal with one small glitch. My husband’s duck was very undercooked. We order duck often so it’s not just a personal preference I reference here. Pink is perfect, but the center was cold and almost raw. He ate it anyway and didn’t complain because everything else was stellar. We’ll be back. My pistachio crusted salmon was perfect and melted in the mouth. Service was excellent. Felt everyone was attentive in just the right amount. Very professional.

Bouchard's has long been one of our FAVORITE restaurants. We've always had exceptional meals and exceptional service there. So needless to say our expectations are always high. And this time, the managed to exceed even those impressively! With Covid restrictions in place, we were given a cozy table sectioned off by a wood & glass panel door. Appetizers were remarkable, delicious and beautifully presented. We splurged and ordered the Dover Sole (first for me) and it was outstanding. Also impressive were the side vegetables where everyone was seasoned slightly differently to produce a wonderful medley of tastes with each bite. Souffle was warm, light and delicious. Our other dessert was a specially requested simple bowl of (their house-made) ice cream. It was elegantly presented garnished with fruit, raspberry sauce and whipped cream. And our usual server, Dan, continues to impress with his personality and attentiveness. It was all so lovely we didn't want to leave and break the spell. A wonderful special occasion destination!!

Our dinner was excellent. The presentation did not disappoint. The combination of flavors from the sides truly enhanced the main course. The Gran Mariner souffle for dessert was heavenly.
The ambiance is romantic and the service is top of the line. We highly recommend Bouchards as a special place for a fabulous dinner and evening.

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.
