Nice, cozy dinner on a cold night! Very good food; service excellent.
We both ordered from the menu instead of the nightly specials, which also looked very appealing. The French onion soup was perfection, they'd discovered the lost art of caramelization, which puts this dish over the top. I also ordered the sweetbreads, served with roasted Brussels sprouts & cherries. Incredible flavor melded perfectly. We ordered brûlée for desert, an old classic which was also done to perfection. Besides the outstanding cuisine, the restaurant staff was well informed, knowledgeable, and gracious.
We had a great time, excellent service and wonderful food! Thank you!
Excellent food, a little crowded table set up , very good service, a little pricey. Would definitely recommend and go again.
Staff was on fire! Food, service, pace was perfect! There are so many expensive restaurants in Santa Fe, and few deliver as Bouche! Our fave!
Great food, service and wine selection. Would return next time we’re in town.
Great place to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant brought champagne on the house and put a candle in our desert. Thanks.
I surprised my husband with a reservation for two at this awesome restaurant. The wait staff was outstanding and the food was unforgettable. Highly recommend!!
Food quality and flavor was not as good as it was last time I was there about 1 1/2 years ago.
Have been going to Bouche since it opened. It has become progressively blander recently. Hope Mr. Dale can find some time in all his projects to train his chefs.
Every bit of the experience was outstanding: reception, service, ambiance, wine and food.
The food was very well prepared. There was a party of approximately 18 women and the noise level was so loud that it was hard to have a conversation.
The staff could not have been nicer, beginning with the hostess, Elena. We arrived for our reservation on time, but our table wasn't ready, so Elena immediately comped us a couple of glasses of champagne while we waited. We got a nice table and ordered; my appetizer was a tiny bit late, and the waiter comped me a glass of wine to go with it. Elena also brought by a free appetizer of cougéres without prompting. My wife wasn't feeling well and we had to cancel her entree mid-meal; the restaurant did so without complaint! The meal I had—branzino on a lovely mushroom risotto—was delicious. We had a lovely time, have rarely been treated as well at a restaurant (and we were first-time customers) and would heartily recommend Bouché to anyone.
Nicely reordered wine list with excellent variety and depth of choices; excellent "French" comfort food and great waiters.
The night's special was halibut; it was nicely cooked, very moist with a delicious sauce on the side.
Service was attentive without being intrusive.
Great food and service. Second time in restaurant and this time was as good as the first. Highly recommended!
Fabulous! Great meal,beautiful plating great wait staff
Outstanding restaurant anywhere ! Great service from John. Interesting, appropriate sized menu with classic as well as new tasty dishes. Fantastic fresh foie gras, butternut squash raviol with duck confit in a delightful broth, and a delicious profiterole to finish. Excellent reasonably priced wine list. A small comfortable neighborhood restaurant not too far from the Plaza. Very glad our local friends recommended it. Will definitely return when next in Santa Fe.
Excellent, as always - well prepared, interesting, excellent ingredients, excellent service. Well selected wine list, with a range of reasonable selections.
A Santa Fe gem! Great alternative to the popular New Mexico cuisine.
Great Seafood. Celebrating a birthday and decided to splurge on large seafood platter in addition to entrees of fish, bouillabaisse, and steak. Everything was very good.
It was a pleasure to dine at Bouche. Excellent food, good ingredients!
Service was impecable, gracious.
Beautiful happy French Bistro.
We sat inside but outside looked very nice although ore casual.
Highly recommend it.
John, our waiter, was knowledgeable, friendly, professional. Knows all about the wines. He also has a great French accent, although I don’t think he’s French!
While everything was fine, the food well-prepared, the service friendly, etc., compared to other fine-dining restaurants in Santa Fe, it was just boring. The space itself is totally unremarkable, with a cliched Parisian vibe. The tables are cramped, and it’s difficult to carry on a conversation. The food matched the disappointing atmosphere. Unremarkable, a bit pretentious; nothing to match the beautiful, creative cuisine so prevalent in Santa Fe. With all the other wonderful choices in Santa Fe (Sazón, Geronimo), I’d never return.
My husbands fish was gristly and even our server was horrified how bad the fish was. She took it back to cut into it and agreed. His brothers seafood was over cooked and dry.
His wife’s chicken was also dry.
I think I was the only one who had a fairly good dinner. We were extremely disappointed with our evening and will give Bouche a rest for a while.
I will say they at least took my husbands fish off our bill.
I don’t know what happened if they were just having a bad night or what but I hope it gets better fast.
Outstanding service, outstanding food, and a great wine menu.
Bouche was great as always. Our waiter was particularly good, and recommended a very good Bourgogne Blanc.
Excellent food, wine, and service. Truly French! Best calves liver ever!
Great. Bryan was very professional and knowledgeable about the wine list. We had the cheese plate as an appetizer My wife had the salmon and I had the mussels. Cooked perfectly
Lovely patio, impeccable service, and delicious food. The halibut was perfection. Finished with the lemon meringue tart- crisp crust, tart curd, and the meringue was light as a cloud. Wonderful!
Food was delicious. Brian was great: very nice with excellent suggestions. We should have listened to him....and we will, next time!
We spent a week in Sante Fe and this was our only “average” meal.
High prices, small portions.
The service was great.
It was nice to enjoy some different food (though we love Southwestern fare) while visiting Santa Fe. The menu at Bouche is simple yet creative. The sea bass was delicious. Their outdoor dining area was perfect for a lovely September evening.
Excellent food as always. Tough to go wrong with any dish.
Always lovely and delicious. Good food, great service, fantastic wine.
Bouche Bistro never disappoints. Everything was perfection.
Bouche bistro exceeded our expectations. The service was prompt but unobtrusive. The food selection was excellent as was the presentation. It was the perfect meal to counter the typical green chile and Mexican fare more typical of the area. They were patient with my daughter who is six, as well as answering our questions about the menu.
From start to finish , another flawless meal.
Great wine list, good value for money
Finding parking was a challenge. Be aware of tow away or permit only restrictions. I mentioned it was a special occasion when the reservation was made.....nada. Pretty slow service.
Wonderful and very doggie friendly. Lovely atmosphere on the patio.
