Bouchard's is an outstanding restaurant because of the delicious food, the excellent, creative presentation and the servers. The servers are professionals at what they do; attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, gracious and very efficient. The menu is varied and has something for everyone, in addition, they always offer specials of day. The lobster bisque is excellent and their salads are delicious. The entrees are mouth watering, There is no rushing at Bouchard's, you have time to enjoy one of their signature cocktails or fine wines. Hopefully you have room for one of their gastronomic desserts. Our favorite is the soufflé made to order. The words light and decadent come to mind. If you are visiting Newport and only have time for one restaurant, Bouchards is a must. Bouchard's is worth drive and if you go, request Dan for your server. Enjoy,

We were in Newport for my sister's 60th birthday. She is a Francophile so I wanted one French restaurant for our weekend. Bouchard was outstanding. Our waiter was wonderful. Dover sole was on the menu, at an amazing price point, and four out of five of us ordered it. It was the highlight of our three-day trip. The escargot, in an elevated preparation (not the usual garlic & butter), was divine. The grand marnier souffle was better than that of La Grenouille in NYC. An amazing dinner!

Phenomenal! Started off with the escargot and the pear salad; outstanding. For the entrees, the roasted lobster and scallops with truffle and the double cut lamb chop were spectacular. For dessert, the peach sorbet was the best I have ever experienced and the creme brûlée was incredible. Top it off with Max’s impeccable service and it was another Bouchard night.

Four of us enjoyed a fabulous and much anticipated dinner at Bouchard Restaurant.
We started with escargots, asparagus and lobster in puff pastry, and the tomato tart. Everyone was pleased. Mesclun salad was a refreshing course before the entrées. Two of us enjoyed the duck with coffee rub. One had the roasted stuffed lobster; wonderful. The fourth ordered the pork in puff pastry and couldn't stop raving about how good it was.
The waiter was the best. He recommended a wine that would complement each entree, and brought the label for our guests, who wanted to find it again.
Dessert was apple on puff pastry for two of us. That used up the available apples, so the third dessert choice was strawberry sorbet - two scoops with garnish - very satisfying.
The ambience of the restaurant is quiet and conducive to relaxing and conversing.
It was also a convenience to pick up a parking pass at the front desk, allowing us to park in a nearby lot.
We save this restaurant for really special events - to keep it special for us.

Very elegant, simple and delicious. My partner and I visited Newport for the weekend and saved this restaurant for last on our weekend excursion. It was well worth the wait. The food was everything you could ever want from French cuisine.

I highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion, especially if you want to feel fancy and throw on your best suit/dress. I ordered the lobster and asparagus puff (amazing) and a beef entree that was cooked to medium rare perfection.

It was certainly quiet inside as well, so noise is not a factor by any means. If you're willing to splurge on a somewhat pricey (but really not that bad) meal, Bouchard Restaurant is pure quality.

My husband andI went for our 30th anniversary. It was all we could have asked for. There was a wonderful ambiance. The servers were knowledgeable and soft spoken and the food was as to die for. It was the whole experience. At one point my husband heard a server tell the kitchen not to serve because the lady had just left the table. They do not miss a beat. We will be back and will send all our friends there.

We have been to Newport on many occassions but this was our first visit to Bouchards. Prior to making the reservation we had read a lot of positive reviews and Bouchards did not disappoint. The staff were both friendly and attentive and the food was hands down the best we've had on any trip to Newport. We are so glad we gave Bouchards a try and can't wait to go back on our next visit. Kudos to the staff for their professionalism and for creating some of the best food we've eaten not only in Newport but anywhere.

Everyone who came to our table with food/drinks were very professional & pleasant. The dining room was elegant & inviting.

What a wonderful place to celebrate three occasions at once: Anniversary, Easter, and April Fools day. From the greeting at the door, to the desert with congralatory words written chocolate on the plate, everything was perfect. Max, our Captain, was dignified but not stuffy with a good sense of humor. We had escargot in a sauce that was just so right. I had pork tenderloin and my wife had Filet of Beef, both donut perfection with seasoning that made it so special. The fun part was the vegetables, of which there were many, displayed as a decoration.

The drinks are very reasonably priced, and the entrees more expensive than the norm, but in this case you get what you paid for and more.

A special, and very French, dining experience. It was my second visit and everything was flawless, as before. Bouchard is a great choice for a special occasion, and an excellent counterpoint to the many seafood and Italian choices in the area.

They don’t offer corkage, so if you are planning on bringing a rare wine with you, I’d suggest a classier place like the Spiced Pear for a nice Newport Dinner.
