Bouche Bistro (Santa Fe)
Beautiful outdoor patio, weather permitting.
This was a great night out with friends during "Restaurant Week in Santa Fe" and we were all very happy with the evening! The food was fabulous! John (or Jon?), our waiter was awesome! No complaints! Bouche is such a great restaurant that they seriously need to (probably already are!) think about relocating to bigger digs!!!
Excellent service. We did not enjoy sitting at a raised table...the coq au vin was not up to par....good value for restaurant week.
Great night. Lovely Irish waiter. Enjoyed every moment.
Family dinner during restaurant week.
Great experience, very attentive staff. Hat’s off Tomas!
The food was delicious. I love the Bistro atmosphere. Our wait person knew the wine list intimately and picked the perfect wine for us in our price range. My friend and I agreed we need to go there more often. Did I mention they have parking!
The food was absolutely delicious. Our server John was very attentive and helpful. I ordered a
glass of wine which went perfectly well with the meal. My only complaint was the size of the
pour seemed rather small in proportion to the cost of the glass.
Elegant setting, great server, impressive wine list, mussels to die for.
Always a restaurant experience which meets or exceeds your expectations.
Another outstanding evening with friends! The best SF has to offer in fine dining !
Fabulous food, wine, service. Valentine’s Day so super busy. We got a horrible table that hung out into the lobby, basically so not very romantic. Still, the restaurant is small and there are few quiet tables.
Great food and great service.
Bouche is always a go-to restaurant. It almost never disappoints. It is the element of surprise, how familiar ingredients are paired in interesting ways. One of Santa Fe's best, for sure.
Bouche is consistent with creative specials. Great wine list.
Consistently excellent. Big City cuisine in a small Santa Fe style package. Been several times and rivals the best in Chicago, LA and New York. Top notch service, hands down best non-New Mexican restaurant in Santa Fe - and decent price to value.
maybe. you need to liven it up a little. maybe some background music. the food was good but not great.
We love Bouche! Fantastic service and wonderful food as always!
Great service, very nice staff, the food was amazing and such a great menu. Some very typical menu items and some very creative items. Great all the way around.
Thomas provides a great dining experience through his approach as an excellent server!
Always an exceptional meal with perfect service! Thank you guys again!
Love that you have the option to sit at high tables looking right at the kitchen. Food excellent as always really receiving that "FrenchStyle" Great wine selection, would love if they had a full bar
A favorite Santa Fe spot, our recent visit to Bouche was especially good. The onion soup is always a treat and the mussels were so plump and fresh with a wonderful white wine and herb/garlic broth. But the standout was the lobster ravioli. Worthy of five stars and an exclamation point---cannot wait to have them again.
Great experience for our 38th anniversary. Greeted with at taste of bubbly. Started with a dozen oysters - two varieties. Moved on to the 63 degree salad and delicious fresh baked bread (don't do much bread these days so this was a huge treat.) Shared the large lobster ravioli entree and ended with a creme brûlée. Probably the best lobster ravioli and creme brûlée we have had. John gave us impeccable service and was fun to visit with. Kudos to former Austinite Jennifer Day and hubby for investing in such a great place.
We both enjoyed our entree very much, lobster ravioli and risotto with pork ragout. The California wine, though good, was a bit on the pricey side at $17 for about a six ounce glass. Our waiter, John was very helpful and attentive. We will return.
We haven't been here in a couple of years and from our first visit it has surpassed itself again. Excellent food, excellent service (attentive, not overbearing). Really nothing to complain about and we'll be back sooner than later. A couple of negatives: The tables can be a little tight and it got a little noisy, not terrible. Entrees seemed to take a bit longer than expected. Prices are higher than many restaurants. A Lobster Risotto entree (small tail, not a ton of risotto, though enough for me as a small eater) was $38. Table of four with two appetizers, one glass of wine, four entrees, three desserts, no other drinks or coffee was $280 with tip. A bit high. Excellent experience.
John was awesome. Beat Creme brûlée’s ever. Will recommend without reservation
the lobster ravioli was very good. the steak au poivre was very tough. amazing lemon tart.
very nice staff. very small room.
This one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Fe. The food is always great, as is the service. We really liked the new Degas paintings on the walls. They provided a very French bistro atmosphere. The lobster pasta was great.
Delicious as always, wonderful service, and great atmosphere 😊
Wonderful experience. Loved food, vine, presentation and service. Highly recommend for special occasion or just for indulging yourself in excellent everything. Singles friendly too. And there is the Chief table...
Superb food and excellent service. One of my favorite places in Santa Fe.
Loved our New Year's dinner. We are going to make this place our new tradition for New year's dinner. The food was awesome and the service was spectacular. Highly recommended.
We went on New Year’s Eve. The restaurant was packed and busy as one would expect, but the atmosphere was festive and didn’t detract from the experience. Our waitress was knowledgeable, attentive (not overly) and friendly. Food was delicious and creative, especially the cauliflower panna cotta, fantastic.
They must have had an off night. Probably won’t be back.
We went for New Year’s Eve dinner... the restaurant had a set menu with a 3 or 5 course dinner option so they should have had it down solid. Waiter was charming and we were greeted and seated promptly but no amuse bouche or anything to make diners feel special... food tasted good but the plating was poor. We brought a friend who did not want dessert and asked for a side of vegetables instead... they made the accommodation but it seemed to have really put the restaurant out — the waiter had to ask the kitchen first if they could do a side of vegetables instead of a dessert and our friend’s vegetables arrived half way through her meal. We were not asked if we wanted coffee or tea or anything else after dessert... check was brought to table right away and we had the sense that were trying to process people quickly... a disappointing experience for a pricey dinner ($540 + for dinner for 3, including 4 glasses of wine and tip) especially when compared to other meals we have had at this restaurant in the past.
This was our third straight year celebrating New Year's Eve at Bouche Bistro. As always, the staff was genuinely welcoming. The ambiance, service and food all combined for another wonderful experience. We will be back!
So French, so glad you're still in Santa Fe. A few faux-pas - don't look at tourists as being less than locals. Don't rush us through the experience. And the high-top in the bar was at the window - very cold and drafty. Spend the money to seal it. Oysters, escargots, lamb loin, and lemon tart meringue excellent as usual. For $250 would have expected a bit more "appreciation." Best of luck - Colorado
The people at the restaurant were so accommodating and so kind. The food was incredible . I highly recommend this restaurant to ANYONE who loves fine dining. A hidden gem.
Thanks for making this birthday celebration lovely! I honestly dislike oysters, but I tried one of yours with the champagne mignonette and I may be converted. Some members of our party were a little cold that evening, but otherwise everything was perfect!
