Bouche Bistro (Santa Fe)
Beautiful outdoor patio, weather permitting.
Tuesday - Thursday: 5:30pm - 9:00pm
Friday and Saturday: 5:30pm - 9:30pm
Food always great. Service always outstanding. Best team in town.
Enjoyed the casual outdoor dining on the patio. Service was excellent and enjoyed having Thomas as our waiter with his friendly personality and attentive service. Our meal was outstanding. Would highly recommend both the beet salad and the Alsatian tarte. The chicken Tagine was special with a wonderful mix of flavors and textures. The profiterole was definitely large enough for two people.
Just a fun, elegant in its simplicity restaurant, with excellent menu finely prepared.
Wonderful service, friendly and cozy atmosphere. The dinner was wonderful. Everything fresh
and presented well. Enjoyed the evening.
A charming French bistro away from the bustle of the Plaza, but close enough to be worth a visit. The food was excellent and the service impeccable in a relaxed atmosphere. Eat with the locals rather than the tourists. Good parking available.
Charles Dale is fantastic!
Great local restaurant!
Still my favorite restaurant in Santa Fe
The atmosphere was nice but the food was average.
We loved everything about the place. We will return soon.
CAUTION! I was seated in the outside patio. 2nd table on the right next to the wood wall. When I got up to leave, my chair leg sunk into the dirt next to the fence and I fell back into the fence. I got stuck between the chair and the fence. Kind diners had to help me up. Suggestion: Fill that dirt area with solid material--plank etc. before someone really gets hurt. (Still LOVE Bouche!!)

Lovely patio dining. Great service, food and a quality wine list.
My wife and I had never been to Bouche, despite driving by it thousands of times while living in Santa Fe. Being GF, we found the menu and service very accommodating to our needs. The GF bread, GF (warm!) crutons in the salad, lots of GF entrée and GF desert options all made our date night dinner very enjoyable.
Wonderful, tasty French cuisine. Good service. Excellent reasonably priced wines. Unforgettable bread. Relaxed ambiance. For liver lovers the calf liver with dijonnaise sauce was really special. A must if you love French bistro fare. The hangar steak was also very good.
We used Open Table. Requested a special table which was waiting for us. The staff here really listen to the customers. Our waiter got some assistance when he could not answer a particular wine question. Food ranges from excellent to stunning. This night the Beet Salad and the Creme Brulee were stunning. Best o order specials as the chef really pulls flavors together.
As always Bouche is impeccable serving the freshest food in a relaxed and caring setting.
Sat outside on patio with beautiful evening weather. Wonderful meal! Very fresh oysters. Delicious mussels and salads. Main course of swordfish perfectly cooked. My bouillabaisse was amazing. Best coffee and great desserts. Always worth a visit!
My husband and I stayed near Bouche and stumbled upon it one evening. We ate there on our last night in Santa Fe and enjoyed everything about it. The food was delicious, the dining space intimate and fun, and the service outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to return on our next trip to Santa Fe.
The food is the star here! Heirloom tomatoes with arugula and pistachio pesto were welcome on a warm summer evening. Two of us were well pleased with the ratatouille-stuffed ravioli, and the third reported that the calves' liver was perfectly cooked. The Country French bread that came to the table almost as soon as we sat down was my personal favorite, narrowly edging out the delicious lemon meringue tart and the stupendous house-made sorbet. Service was excellent and unstuffy.
Beautiful food, wonderful service, desserts to die for!
Beautiful patio, friendly staff, mediocre food.
This was our second visit to Bouche and we enjoyed it as much as the first. The service was excellent and the meals were delicious. I like liver and onions which is hard to find and perfectly cooked at Bouche. We were 4 and all of our experiences were equally enjoyable. We will certainly return regularly.
Another very nice experience at Bouche. The fresh fish is always cooked to perfection. John, our server could not have been more helpful.
Did not like the blue and red plastic chairs on the patio. Otherwise ambience good.
Wonderful. Thank you very much.
Oysters & steak tartare
Bouche is a popular high-end restaurant/bistro. The food is always superb. It's in a rather small, non-descript building a couple of blocks from downtown Santa Fe. Open kitchen at one end of the main dining area. They've done the best that can be done with the space. It's usually crowded and very noisy, which can be exciting or annoying depending on your mood. But you won't be disappointed in the food or service. Expensive for Santa Fe. Most meat entrees are $30 - $40 and everything else priced accordingly.
Great food, but the dining room is somewhat cramped and very noisy. Best if you can eat outside.
The service felt individual and they paid attention to details. And the dinner portions were ample and delicious!
We wanted a light summer meal. The weather was perfect for outdoor dining in a charming setting. The Wait staff was knowledgeable and attentive. Wine choice was excellent, and the entire dinner was delightful - seafood plater, beet salad, bouillabaisse and profiteroles.
Lovely casual atmosphere on the patio with truly fine French bistro fare. Service was attentive and personal. Highly recommend.
From food to service, a great dining experience. That's it, that's all.
Great service and excellent food.
Bouillabaisse risotto was neither bouillabaisse nor risotto. Prawns were dry, the octopus and calamari, the little that was there, was over cooked and tough. And way overpriced. Will not be back.
Bouche is a special dining and taste experience. The meal takes us back to fine tastes and quality meals of another time. Thank you!
We had a delightful time at this restaurant and were treated like royalty. The food was just super and the service was impeccable.
Great, authentic French cuisine. Simple ingredients and absolutely delious! Even my picky son and husband liked it! Wine was a bit pricey and they don’t have a full bar, but all in all a great experience and we will be back next time in Santa Fe!
An old friend was visiting who is a connoisseur of all things French so I suggested Bouche which was also a leisurely walk from her hotel. Pleasant patio seating, enticing menu selections, good service, delicious food , and plenty of time to savor our meal , sip a chilled wine,and catch up on our lives.
I have never been disappointed. Period. It remains a favorite.
We had eaten here before but the experience this time was very nice. Think that the prices are a little on the high side for the amount of food that you receive. The main entree is small, but tasty. Wine prices on the high side, but normal for this type of restaurant.
As always, we had a great evening.
