Everything was great until after dinner when we asked were the rest of our food (doggy bag) was, the waiter grabbed our bill that was in a cup a rushed away. He can back later to say that they dumped everything in one box, although we suspected that it was in the garbage. He said they would remake our leftovers and didn’t come back for another 15 minutes. Of course my wife’s lamb was missing and he remade a lot of fries with a steak. Why wife was annoyed when he made no offer to replace the missing lamb. Sad.

Everything was wonderful
The last time we were here the onion soup was excellent
The reason I downgraded the food from excellent to very good was
the onion soup was not tasty
There were 3 of us and none of us cared for it
That was our only disappointment
Everything else was excellent
Yes we will go back but forget the onion soup

A great experience every time! We never feel rushed. Always something new on the specials board and the Martinis and Manhattans flow to our delight. We normally try to avoid dining out on a Saturday in the valley but I must say... we never felt rushed and the team is always the best! Thanks again!

We weren't impressed. The braised ribs were dry, and the lamb was served with a squash puree that did not compliment the way the lamb was done. Service was great.

My food (trout and cauliflower) was rather bland and there was very little cauliflower on the plate. The salad dressing was mostly oil. We were well served by informed and helpful wait staff. Excellent espresso.

Food was amaaazing! Everything was very reasonably priced and the staff was all very welcoming. Only issue was with how close we were sitting with our neighbors. Could not step out from my seat to use the restroom without tripping on my neighbor's foot. You also can't ignore the conversations going on next to you because that's just how close we were sitting together. I've never noticed it at other restaurants (including some super small ones in NYC) as much as I did at Bouchon.

Food was very good, but not exceptional which we would have expected from a Michelin rated restaurant. Noise level was intolerable. Manager should had had the wherewithal to ask a couple of tables to tone it down. All in all...disappointing.

I had expectations last night (12/30/18), based on my 2 visits to Per Se in NYC and also based on visits to other Michelin rated restaurants (incl. several visits to Jean Georges) in NYC and in France. Bouchon Napa service was in no way on par with any of the Michelin rated restaurants that I have been to. It was inattentive and inadequate. Seriously....disappointing.

The food was very good but not Michelin-quality. 2 out of 4 dishes were not cooked properly and the waiter never bothered to stop at our table and ask us how our meals were.

Headed to Bouchon Las Vegas next week. Hopefully it will be better...

Very French feel and very good meal. Prices were reasonable but portions very small. We ordered leg of lamb, scallops (my husband immediately ordered a full order of fries once he saw how small his scallops meal was, but still very good even though small portion) and salmon. For apps we had salads and deviled eggs. Dessert was a meringue with an almond crust top, and a coconut ice cream and almond cake. All delicious!!
