Our first time in Napa celebrating our wedding anniversary an decided on Bouchon for dinner. We based the restaurant selection on the wonderful reviews. It was a great dinner experience not only where we celebrating our anniversary but the restaurant was also celebrating their 20th year. We decided on the 20th anniversary pre-fix menu and every item in the four course offering was truly amazing.

A special thank you to Jose, our waiter, for making the experience a memorable one.

The food was just ok (nothing spectacular), and for the price there are better places to dine in Yountville. The wine list is really expensive, and even the lowest priced are well above the price point of comparable restaurants (by the glass started around $20, half bottles at the low end start around $50). They do offer corkage for $35, so considering this we would definitely bring a bottle next time. We also ate at Ad Hoc, and Bistro Jeanty, and thought that both had great food, and were a much better value.

I am a Les Clefs d’Or Concierge, at the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Resort. I know service and want to acknowledge a member of Bouchon who saved my evening: the issue nothing to do with Bouchon. I had ordered
a particular item of their menu, asking about it and getting a complete explanation from our server. It was disappointing and I struggled with the meal.
After my wife completed her entree, their dining room manager came over to ask if we were finished with our meal. He looked at me and said he noticed that I was having difficulty with the offering. He immediately
offered I order another entree..., “at Bouchon no one should leave hungry or disappointed. He was so empathetic to my struggles and insisted I order. I did and ordered one of their signature choices....it was sensational. All that, and Alex brings over “goodies” from their marvelous French
bakery for us to leave with.
This is a young man who has amazing instincts. I will forever remember this and speak it to those young assiciates as an example of service and hospitality exceptionalism. Bouchon...you have a rare
talent.
His name: Alex Laos! My applause to
Alex.
Frank C, Lead Concierge.

We love Bouchon, however this experience was not as great as others we’ve had in the past. Our cheese plate was a bit meager. We were smushed into a small corner despite having made reservations over a week in advance. We waited a very long time for our entrees. The food was delicious as always which is why I still give Bouchon all 4 stars. Our server was very busy and did the best she could to check on us, but it was t the best service we have had there either simply because she had so many tables to help. Seemed maybe we just came on an off day.

Outstanding service and food. This is our go-to spot every time we are in Napa - and I do recommend reservations as it gets busy on the weekends. The Grand Plateau, Sauteed Foie and wine are amazing. Now only if they have a frequent diner club... ;)

Pluses: appetizers and entrees (veal, trout almondine) were excellent. Patio dining was nice. Seated promptly at reservation time.
Minuses: "4" tops were barely large enough for 2, impossible for 4. Service was a big letdown; server would vanish for extended periods of time, although he was friendly and professional. Wine selection by glass and bottle on the expensive side.

Overall, a pleasant French cuisine experience.

The place is small, lots of tables, lots of people, very noisy! This is not a place for a quiet, romantic dinner! Several waiters/ waitress around, but slow to remove empty plates, refill water glasses. We ordered bottle of wine, appetizers, salads, steaks and dessert. Food is good. Ok..., not outstanding...steak and fries! For the price , will probably try other places.

The food was just ok this time. I have been to many of Keller's restaurants around the us like The Laundry and Per Se. But unfortunately the food today was just ok. The lamb was slightly underdone, the veal l was very fatty, the cheese was just ok (and I am a HUGE cheese lover) but the Oeufs Mimosa was awesome and my moms desert was quite good (although a little bit too much to eat) Service was excellent as always. The setting is always lovely and the atmosphere was good. Not the birthday food I was expecting but it will do. The food tasted good but was disappointed with the cook on the lamb and the veal was quite fatty. But all in all it was ok.

My husband and I always look forward to dinner at this lovely spot while visiting Napa. Sentimentally speaking, we lived in France for several years, Bouchon really does have an authentic French feel to it.
I can't say that my meal was excellent tis time, but I still thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

We dined here for brunch to celebrate our anniversary. We were greeted with champagne to celebrate! The food we had was amazing and our server was very friendly. The prices were pretty high, but we knew that going in. Very disappointed that they serve frozen french fries though - I'd expect everything to be scratch at a restaurant such as this - and at these prices. Everything else was top notch!

We go to Bouchon anytime we are in the area. We live 45 miles away. And it's worth the drive. We have had lunch, brunch and dinner over the years and have never had a bad experience. The wine selection as you would expect is outstanding and their cocktails are wonderful. I know it may seem small the the bread is to die for and on it's own is worth a visit. The dessert are equally outstanding. the atmosphere is ideal. There is no pretension, no snotty maitre D Just a very attentive polite and capable staff. I would recommend Bouchon to anyone and everyone.
