Okay food but very pricey for an average meal. Cheapest glass of Cabernet was $20, which is ridiculous, in my opinion. Service was pretty terrible. No attention whatsoever and seemed like we were keeping our waiter from doing something more important. With all the wonderful restaurants in the area, I feel certain there are better options available with much better service.
Close, but not quite,an actual French bistro. The wait staff was too attentive and nice.
Pretty disappointed this time. The tables are too close together and the music too loud. Not the place for a romamtic dinner with next table 6 inches away. Hard to carry on a conversation over the din. Ordered lamb and it was tough to cut and a bit undercooked. Third time was not the charm for the expense involved. Wont be back for a while. Poor value
We have eaten here many times. The food is excellent and the service professional. Will
Return again as w have since it opened in 1998. We live in the San Francisco east bay and especially enjoy a long weekend in the a Napa Valley.
Very Dog Friendly on the patio! Wonderful food in a lovely location.
My wife and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary at Bouchon this year. We had been there before and regularly stop for macarons when we drive through Yountville.
Our experience was impeccable. Everything from the sweet card from Bouchon wishing us happy anniversary to the cheese plate at the end of our evening was simply perfect.
My wife enjoyed the sole, which was perfectly prepared and deboned at our table. My rib eye with pomme frites was out of this world. Normally I avoid a rib eye steak because it tends to be too fatty. This steak was lean, incredibly seasoned, and served with a wonderful bernaise sauce. I highly recommend upgrading the frites to the black truffle option.
We will return again and again as Thomas Keller and his Bouchon team have routinely created spectacular evenings for us every time we dine there.
Food and service are to die for
Amazing brunch, fantastic service!
As usual, the whole experience was wonderful. Two thumbs up!!!
I love the food at Bouchon, don't get me wrong. We have eaten here many, many times. But... this last visit the music made the dining experience almost unpalatable, and that's hard to do at a Thomas Keller restaurant. Somehow they played a robo station that featured hits from the past with a sampled pump-pump base. SOUNDS... pump pah pump... OF... pump-pah-pump SILENCE.... We asked if the music could be turned down, and it was perhaps... but only a smidge. The result was in no way an atmosphere reminiscent of a French bistro. We could have been in a Food Court. We certainly like good music, but the station Bouchon played was one where the original artist probably gets nothing, the beat overwhelmed the generic singers and the result rendered the otherwise excellent dining experience less than satisfactory. It is to be hoped that powers that be at Bouchon will take this criticism to heart so we may once again enjoy Bouchon to the fullest. Music should be in keeping with the ambience. Jazz, Edith Piaf, Django Reinhardt, classical... Really... we are open to almost anything but PUMP PAH PUMP.
This was my first visit and it was great. The atmosphere and service were fantastic.
Dinner was excellent. We split everything - pate, green & goat cheese salad, mussels & steak frites. Fabulous 500ml of house red wine too. Service was very attentive. Short walk from out hotel.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. Service was top notch. Food was delicious. Hard to beat this little French bistro and a bakery in downtown yountville.
Service was great, I had a
I had the lamb and it melted in my mouth and the sauce was sooooo good! Our waiter was Mr Personality +, funny and attentive! My husband's salmon was excellent and of course the desserts were good too! Highly recommend Bouchon!
Really enjoyable brunch - service very good. Steak was exceptional.
What a truly wonderful spot! Every single member of staff I interacted with was professional and so very friendly - these people genuinely love what they do and have a real passion for food and wine. And the food....! Thomas Keller keeps it real here but it is French fare done impeccably. No pretension. I will remember this meal for a long time!
The meal, service was fabulous - really about all that needs to be said - highly enjoyable experience. That's the plus - only negative and it's because of the space and its acoustics, was a bit on the loud/noisy side, but everything else, excellent service - spot on!
Was very nice, staff was very friendly
Food was incredible. Service very good. Very busy restaurant. Will be back.
Excellent meal and great service. Would recommend to others who want something special. Must have a reservation though.
Beautiful place, exquisite service, but food was a bit of a letdown
I recently enjoyed a great dinner with my wife at Bouchon. We likely had a new server, who appeared very nervous at first but became more comfortable as the meal progressed, and did a great job. I had the roasted chicken, which is likely the best piece of chicken I've ever eaten. My wife had the trout which was very good as well. The oysters and other appetizers were very good as was the creme brulee. I can't wait to go back.
Food and service was outstanding and reasonably priced for Napa. The table next to us was extremely loud and obnoxious and both our waiter and the manager addressed our concerns immediately. Will definitely go back!
It was a friends’ gathering plus my daughter birthday. We had 4 kids and 4 adults. It wasn’t our first time but definitely first time for my friends. Our server wasn’t enthusiastic about serving us. Toward the end when a bus boy cleaning the table, he dropped a bowl of ketchup in my friend’s jean. Without any apologizing, he left the table. As my friend tried to wipe the ketchup off, our server brought over a bottle of baking soda mixed with water to my friend. Again, without any sincere apologizing or gesture. Overall it was a unpleasant dinner and a bad experience for my friends. For a Michelin star restaurant, we would expect a better service.
It was Easter. 5:15 reservation. Seated right away which was 1/2 before reservation time. The tables were a bit too close together. A bit uncomfortable. The person who seated us didn’t give me enough time to move my feet and it had hit my toes pretty hard. There was no apology. Our server was very nice. It was a very nice dinner.
Great as usual
While the food was good the noise in the room was so loud it literally distracted me from what I was eating. On top of that we were by the ordering computer, which was further distracting, even more so when drama between a waiter and an apprentice-waiter broke out.
All in all while the food was good (particularly the epi) it was not as excellent as I was expecting from a name like Thomas Keller. I think there is a lot of hype around this restaurant, but better choices in the area.
The food was quite good especially the escargot and the desserts. Service was attentive until the end. Manager did a nice job coming around to the tables. Were sat at a table by the bar and was bumped quite a few times by the staff and bar customers. Otherwise nice time.
Can't be better! Guess they can but will be difficult. Glad to be here.
Everything was wonderful! Our server was great! He was able to get a special pasta dish for my sister, who is a vegetarian, and it was fabulous! He boxed our unfinished food and slipped 2 of their excellent baguettes into the bag.
Wonderful food, staff was very kind and made it a special experience for my aspiring chef sons
Our meal at Bouchon couldn’t have been better. The service was personable and attentive, the was food well prepared and beautifully presented and the surroundings were beautiful.
We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at Bouchon and cannot wait to return soon. Thank you to the staff of Bouchon for a special experience.
I love Bouchon.
Great food, great service. Enjoyed both lunch and dinner at Bouchon this trip.
Awesome, the truche au papulluon was amazing
