    I wanted to take my girlfriend here during our visit to California’s wine country and Bouchon did not disappoint. The Croque Madam was excellent, the chicken and waffles were wonderful, and the ambiance was great. I forget our server’s name (his been there for 10 years!) but he was attentive, informative, and personable while allowing us to enjoy the experience and time together. Bouchon is a must visit for every trip!

    VERY DISAPPOINTING. The reservation was made 4 weeks in advance. They called 3 days before to confirm - spoke with a gentleman. They called again next day to confirm - spoke with a female. They text the day of to confirm, replied Yes. We arrived on time, and were seated in the bar at a small bistro table! After expressing our displeasure...we were moved to the dining room. The server was great, regrettably we don't remember his name. The food was so-so. Not a great steak, and salmon was dry. Wine is over priced for their selection. Did not have dessert. Very disappointing, will not return.

    We ate dinner at Bouchon during a recent trip to Napa and found it very convenient with our stay in Yountville. We have been to Bouchon a handful of times, and this visit was the best one to date, with a special menu celebrating Paul Bocuse involing lots of delicious truffles cooked and shaved into the dishes. We were seated right away at a side table which was perfect to watch the restaurant, filled with both romantic couples and groups on a Friday night. We brought a bottle of wine and it was decanted and set on our table as we ordered a glass champagne to start with our appetizers. My wife ordered the truffle soup while I had mussels and frits that were both wonderful. We split main courses of truffle chicken and truffle pasta and finished with an apple tart and chocolate cake which were perfect ways to end the evening. We left content and not overly full from the meal, which is exactly how we wanted the evening to end. Service was friendly and helpful and the evening couldn’t have been better.

    So amazing! Love the vibe, adored the food... we shared the escargot app and the delish carrot salad to start, my husband had the Steak Bouchon with truffle fries and I had the gnudi with black truffle (shaved table-side) and for dessert we shared cream brûlée. The meal was prefect! And they sent us away with a bag full of goodies from Bouchon Bakery! Lovely date night on our vacation in Napa Valley! Go eat here anytime you have the chance!

    I've eaten at the Bouchon Restaurant in Las Vegas many times while there on business. I took my husband up the Yountville Bouchon as a treat and we were very disappointed. The oncoin soup was too thick with bread and lacking onions as well as too rich and salty, the escargot lacked flavor, although the puff pastry toppers were very good, and our main, steak frites, was also oversalted; the meat itself was tender but very salty. The bakery next door was wonderful the next morning for breakfast pastries although I will not go back to Bouchon Cafe.

    We loved everything about Bouchon — the pumpkin soup was the best I ever had—EXCEPT the main courses. My trout and my husband’s salmon were extremely salty. That was the only taste I could discern . Otherwise it was bland.

    My husband and I dined at Bouchon for lunch in between our wine stops. Please make sure you have reservations like we did, if you don't...good luck getting in! Fun atmosphere, and amazing food. We had the steaks (which were amazing!) Then we followed up everything with some crème Brule.

    My food came out so fast, I felt like I was being rushed or the food wasn’t cooked to order for someone else so it was reheated for me. The food was good. I sat down for dinner a little after 8:00 by 8:50 I was in route (or at) my hot.

    People rave about Bouchon so we had high expectations. The noise level is so high you have to yell to have a conversation. The food was disappointing based on expectations. Our mussels app had 30% empty shells and one steak was inedible. The salmon was very good and the cassoulet was good. Servers spilled on my friend’s shoes and never noticed until she asked for a towel. Overall, just ok for the price.

    $36 for three ‘medallions’ of chewy lukewarm lamb, and lukewarm chestnuts that could have come from a can - very disappointed. French onion soup with no onions in it? Not sure how to do that but that’s the way it was served. Staff very attentive however.
