Bouchard Restaurant showed no signs of declined service, cuisine or atmosphere. We could not possibly have picked a better place for our wedding anniversary celebration. The escargot and pate’ appetizers with cocktails were perfect! We paired champagne and wine with sumptuous Dover Sole and Lamb Chops entrees, and finished with the signature Soufflé. Marco was our superbly engaging, but non-intrusive waiter. 5++ Stars Dining!

My wife and I had a fabulous dinner at Bouchard. The restaurant was not too busy and the waiter Daniel was one of the best waiters we have ever encountered and he made our visit very special. The food was outstanding and the wine was good too. And overall it was very good value...enough money to be special but not too much that it was scary on the pocket!

The presentation of the food is always important to me as well as great service and I found Bouchard to have both- loved the attention to detail. It was my Boyfriend’s birthday and they greeted him with a Happy Birthday when we entered. We had a great experience- thank you!

The service was exceptional. The food was really good,
a bit pricey but worth it. The Grand Marnier Souffle was

Bouchards is one of our favorite restaurants...wonderful food, service, and ambience. We just enjoyed a wonderful "special occassion" meal for my husband's birthday on a cold and snowy Monday night, and found that their high standards and warmth have been maintained during the pandemic.

Excellent food and service, nice intimate place. Found myself wanting a real knife for the duck breast but it was cooked just right so you could get away with the butter knife provided with a little extra force. Champagne glasses felt dollar store-ish too, which is not great with $150 champagne. But honestly, serveware was the only minor complaint-the stuff that matters-food and service were all great! We split the lobster bisque for appetizer 1. Escargot was delicious and the saucer was served in was nice. Wife had re stuffed lobster with truffle and it was not overpowering/overused like it sometimes can be elsewhere. Had the pre-ordered soufflé which was perfect. Apples done multiple ways for additional desert. Max was our waiter and spot on for everything, glass never too full or too empty, food service timed well. Not intrusive or hovering just always appeared exactly when needed. Had notated in reservation it was our anniversary and we were greeted with a congratulations upon arriving, with playful lettering on the dessert plates and complimentary champagne toast at finish. Would definitely go again!

My husband and I enjoyed our 25 year anniversary. We shared 4 courses and split 4 glasses of wine. Dan did a beautiful job pairing our wines with each course. Can not remember the last time I had such a perfect experience of food, wine, atmosphere and service. Thank you Dan!

It has become a tradition for our personal holidays ( Birthday, Anniversary, Valentines, Etc.) to celebrate with the privilege going to Bouchards. Very intimate and romantic. If you love your spouse he or she will never forget such a wonderful experience. Thank You Bouchards for making our marriage that much more special.

We decided to have our Christmas Eve dinner here because we had loved the outstanding food and service when we visited several years before. Our return visit didn't disappoint. My veal chop was very tender with a lovely sauce. I also had the Grand Marnier soufflé which I highly recommend. My daughters enjoyed duck and scallops and their desserts of chocolate cake and crème brule. The service was very attentive and, while the food is pricey, you get good value. We left very satisfied.
