We came here to celebrate our 20th anniversary and were seated at a peak time. We weren’t thrilled about our table so we waited in the bar area with some sparkling to start. We only told one person but that’s all it took. The communication among their team is seamless. Matthew took quickly to a beautiful table and made our night. Brendan or BSap was spot-on on his recommendations. The Salmon Rillette and Bib lettuce salad was a perfect split and share to get us started. The dish that our highlight was the duck. If they have the duck for 2 on the menu, you have to get it! The sommelier (sorry I didn’t get her name) was so knowledgeable and gave us some beautiful wines by the glass. If you’re looking for something super romantic and quiet, this is not probably not the place for you. If you like classy and energetic, come here and you will not be disappointed! Thank you to Matthew and his outstanding team for amazing service!

Good = food quality/quantity, ambiance

Not so good = wine prices were very high, server should have told us the duck confit appetizer portion was more than enough for 2 people (not just 1 person), tables were too close (packing too many people in the room).

Fantastic food and service. We brought a 1962 Leoville that was expertly decanted. Steak Tartare was brilliant as was the Salads Lyonnaise. Steak Frites perfectly cooked as always.

We always have a great time at Bouchon. The food is delicious (I especially like going "old world" with the deviled eggs as an appetizer) and the service and ambiance is always top notch.

The food was very good. It was authentically delicious an flavorful. My partner and I split the duck crown special. I would say what makes this restaurant outstanding is the service. I can't ever recall having such wonderful servers with smiles and being so on point with their responsiveness and demeanor. Be warned the place is rather small and it gets very noisy. Overall very good experience and I would recommend, but definitely not for those who are price conscious.

The noise level made it almost impossible to hear the other person at my table. The tables are so close together that tables for 2 are really tables for 4 and one can clearly hear the next table's conversation
The food was very good and the service outstanding. It is wonderful that the waiters know details about all the menu items and are well versed in the wine list selections to accompany the entrees

We had a great experience, server was engaging and knowledgeable. I would have rather not have to have asked about the specials to have the server discuss them with us. I felt like the Croq Madam ate a little dry, Mussels were great and steaks were too. We'll be back

I always enjoy going to Bouchon. Our table was by a window and very pleasant. It is noisy but manageable. Our lunch included mussels and fries, french onion soup and salad.
I am glad to hear that the restaurant stopped serving foie gras.

We loved our dinner!! The ONLY complaint I have is they brought us 2 glasses of champagne since it was our Honeymoon. It made us definitely feel special, and we loved it so much, we ordered a bottle. My complaint is that we got charged for the “comp” drinks. It was only $11, but it kind of rubbed me the wrong way. The meal and service was wonderful. I almost felt like mentioning it, but didn’t think it was worth it.

The food was good and we appreciated the fact that the waiter acknowledged my husband's birthday with a slice of lemon tart. However, the crust, which was clearly fresh was nevertheless not tasty. Flavor-wise, it reminded me of milk bone (when I was a kid, I thought eating an occasional milk bone - dog treat- was cute). Of course, I was wrong. You might like to try a slice and perhaps rethink the recipe.

The Server was very attentive and knowledgeable which help as we made our choices. The food freshness and quality were at a high level, which is what you would expect. The price on the Ruinart 1/2 bottle was high, but it was a bubbles only day.

Being vegetarian, I crave the gnudi with black truffle. There was none. Had the gnocchi instead but it was dry and tasteless. Couldn’t eat it. The wait staff were amazing though and I can’t complain about anything they said or did. The tables where we sat were two tops literally on top of each other, so it was hard to have any “alone” time without our neighbors chiming in. Oh well. Guess the next time I call to make sure they have black truffles before I go. First world problems. 🤷🏽‍♀️

The food is outstanding. The service is sparse and distracted. We tried to get more wine, after dinner drinks, coffee with dessert but never got attention from a passing staff member. The 1st waiter was very busy telling us what was not available on the menu he failed to actually mention what WAS on the chef specials board.
