I took my wife here for our 14th anniversary and we had a wonderful experience. When I reserved, I mentioned that it was for our anniversary and that we preferred a table in a quiet area. When we arrived, the hostess put us at a table in a cozy and quiet part of the restaurant and mentioned my request and also asked if we were happy with it which I appreciated. Our waiter was extremely friendly and patient as my wife is pregnant and had questions about the ingredients. The food presentation and taste was fantastic. Our salads, golden beet and endives, were very fresh and flavorful and also nicely presented. For the entree, I had the magret de canard with a coffee rub which was very tender and the sauce was just right and not overly strong with coffee flavor. My wife really enjoyed her steak and said that even though it had to be well done, it was very high quality and tender. For dessert, my wife ordered the apple puff pastry and said it was the best she had ever had. My biggest dessert recommendation would be to order the soufflé which was exceptional. However, you have to order it at the same time as your meal because it takes so long. To add a nice touch for our anniversary, the cook wrote Bon Anniversaire in chocolate on our plates. Also, the waiter brought me a glass of champagne and my wife a champagne flute filled with ginger ale since she can’t have alcohol which was very thoughtful. All in all, our experience at Bouchard was wonderful and I would highly recommend it for a romantic dinner on a special occasion.
My husband and I have dined at great restaurants all over the world. We live in Newport part-time and decided to try Bouchard after years of walking by. After our amazing meal, we wonder why we took so long to go! Everything was perfect—-great service, food was perfect and beautiful setting. We can’t wait to return! One small note—-parking Is a challenge, so leave some extra time beforehand.
Had dinner here with my husband, my brother and his wife to celebrate last day of our visit to Newport. We wanted a cozy but upscale ambiance. What we got was probably one of the best overall dining experiences of our lives! Incredible menu, flawlessly executed. Our wait captain, Dan was outstanding as he suggested wine pairings and personally created cocktails to compliment our dinner selections. Menu musts?? Foie Gras, tomato tarte, rack of lamb, Dover sole, and of course.... dessert souffle ( seriously, do not miss the souffle!). Voila- Perfect French dining! Would travel back to Newport just to visit Bouchard again. Yes... It's THAT good!
Amazing, fabulous, classic food. No hype, no hip chic just great food and service. It never disappoints!
Totally enjoyable in every respect. Fantastic food, service the best anywhere.
Always an amazing dining experience but certainly enjoyed the restaurant week specials!
One of the best restaurants ever! Always a great meal!
Has been our choice for special occasions for some time and it did not disapoint us this time either. The atmosphere is calming and the staff is observant. Dan our head waiter is a perfect professional, knowledgeable and attentive.
The meal was to perfection prepped and very enjoyable, paired with some great wines.
We can only say: Try it , you will not be sorry.
We had an exceptional time at Bouchards. Outstanding food, service, and a great bottle of wine. We will be back soon.
We have been enjoying the Bouchard Restaurant for a number of years, and continue to go back month after month because of the consistency of everything a fine restaurant should offer - their service (Dan in particular although Max is also an outstanding server) is what you dream about; both my husband and I agree that the food is far better than most of the finest restaurants we've experienced; and their wine list is a perfect complement to their exceptional menu. Again, the consistency of excellent food, superior service, outstanding wines, a warm and intimate dining environment and an overall wonderful dining experience is the reason we keep going back.
I had been to the Revolving Door and had been wanting to try Bouchard. The food and service were excellent. We received a glass of complimentary champagne because we were celebrating a birthday. I would definitely dine there again.
Excellent food with very attentive service.Very nice atmosphere in an old inn type setting.Parking offered in lot ,a short walk from restaurant,definitely a plus in Newport.
Still the best restaurant in Newport! The appetizer with puff pastry filled with lobster and asparagus in a cream sauce is a must as well as the dessert souffle!
The food and service are always memorable at Bouchard. It’s guaranteed to be a good meal. A must for people who don’t know it.
We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. We chose Bouchard's because we have been there before and thought it was spectacular. The food is nothing short of amazing. the service gracious and professional and the ambiance lovely. We were not disappointed. This is my favorite restaurant ever. Just sorry it is two hours away from where we live so we don't get to go there very often.
We had an outstanding dinner, reminding me of some of the best meals we have had in France. Service was impeccable. All around great experience.
We love Dan and the entire staff...they make you feel very important and special.
Date night for my wife and I. Absolutely the best French restaurant!
Great service and delicious food. Highly recommend, we had a wonderful time.
We never miss going to Bouchard when we are visiting Newport. Staff are unfailingly pleasant and professional, and the food is superb, talented young chef Jessica handles the kitchen well. You cannot go wrong, especially for a special dinner.
Lovely dinner. Champagne provided by staff as an anniversary celebration. Very nice touch.
Went in the off season and it was quite different from their summer service. The food was still excellent. The ambiance is much more lively in the summer. Waitstaff is attentive and polite.
Great meal During our Winter Get away. The food and service as usual were excellent. Never a problem and the hostess was very accommodating as to where we sat. Great wine list.
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!
This restaurant is a favorite of mine. We always make sure to go whenever we are in Newport. The food is always fantastic, as is the service. Max and Carmen were great servers. Highly recommend!
The food is always delicious and Max and Carmen are the best. We love Bouchard's. It is by far our favorite restaurant. We are never disappointed.
Many options for French food that ate all delicious. Very quaint and special.
My 2nd time. Amazing food and service. You feel the atmosphere as soon as you go in
Excellent, excellent and Dan does not disappoint. Service is excellent. And thank you for arranging parking. So we will go more often
Great food, service and atmosphere. This has quickly become our favorite restaurant. We will be back soon!
Third visit for a Valentine's Day dinner. As always, a very special experience. Food and service great!
I was in town for my birthday weekend and struggled to pick a restaurant for my birthday dinner. So glad I picked this restaurant! Food, service, and atmosphere was perfect!
I always have a wonderful evening of fantastic cuisine at Bouchard. If you enjoy classic French cuisine then this is he restaurant for you.
superb, atmosphere, service and the food was outstanding. I can't recommend enough. wrth the trip to Newport.
Celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. Everything was wonderful and we can’t wait to return!
A gem of a restaurant. Excellent food. Superb service. A place to celebrate special occasions.
The restaurant was beautiful and quiet. The service was truly excellent, and the food was superb. The perfect spot for a winter night’s date!
Our meal, the service, and the ambience was impeccable. We drove from New York to enjoy a cozy birthday meal here, and could not be more pleased. Everything was outstanding, and we look forward to a return visit.
Our new favorite restaurant!
The service and food were excellent. My second time here and both have been absolutely perfect dining experiences.
