 (Washington DC)·Dined a day ago

All the dishes were over salted. I could not finished half of the food because of the saltiness. Table was cramped but tolerable. Noise level is high and you can hear your neighbors’s conversation; . Don’t think it deserves the one Michelin Star. The best thing about this dining experience is the bread.

This was one of the worst dinning experiences ever. Service was arrogant and slow, food was fair and over priced. Example of big named restaurant that does deliver on hype.

My wife and I went to lunch at Bouchon. I ordered a steak, and we then waited 50 minutes before we left. I did not wait for the steak. I offered to pay for what we had eaten, but they did not want to charge me.

While I was waiting 50 minutes for the steak my wife ate her soup and salad. I ate an appetizer of deviled eggs, but they did not bring me my salad. When I asked about my salad they brought it in about 15 minutes. They did bring me the glass of red wine that I ordered to have with the steak.

We had some food in the car that I ate as we drove through the wine country.

We have going to Bouchon since it opened 20 years ago. The service and the food are spectacular; never had a bad meal. On our most recent visit , our server Yvette was outstanding. I will ask for her next time.

The door to the outside seating area was not self close, and it stayed open for LONG periods of time. It was very cold in the dining room. We asked the maître d' to please keep the door close as it was uncomfortably cold and our food was also getting cold. He talked to the staff and they tried to keep it close. It got a little warmer, but still not comfortable.

Unbelievable that a restaurant at this level does not have a self closing door and a air curtain blocking the cold.

Very, very loud (as usual), but this time it really got to me. I thought the steak frites was not up to normal standards, and the "bread pudding" over poached pears was really off the mark. Great atmosphere.

I am surprised to have read anything bad about the service, the service was fantastic. However...while the deviled eggs, truffle fries, and beef tartare were all tasty, both my trout and my wife's salmon were over salted and overall disappointing. We did not have dessert.

Not sure this place really deserves a Michelin star. La Toque appeared clearly (to us) in a different class and they are both one star. Might be getting a boost from the whole Thomas Keller thing.

If you miss Paris - this is the place!! From the minute you walk in the ambience is warm and inviting along with the welcoming staff that makes you feel at home and treat you like an old friend!! This is not to mention the food is outstanding - don't miss the risotto - so creamy and exceptional !! Also, another favorite would be the Pig Ears- once you try them you will crave them. Anything on the menu is outstanding - you cannot go wrong!

We had dinner reservation for 6:30 - arrived around 6:20 - there was a group checking in before us. We could tell there was something going on. Then they got seated ( turns out she was a housewife from the real housewives series.) the very rude hostess actually tells that they just checked in as us and they gave then our table, feeling very infuriated at not only her lack respect but her making us feel like it was our fault. I️ immediately asked to speak to the manger - after waiting a few minutes he showed and said in fact that was not the case but he did not know that we witnesses the thing with the hostess. He too us to bar, bought drinks, gave us the next table 40 minutes later. The also were wonder with s she’ll flush dich a dessert , it eases

While on vacation we knew Bouchon would be on our dining list. We had a wonderful dining experience on our last visit and wanted to come again. The food was delightful. Well proportioned and flavorful. The lobster bisque was exquisite, light and fragrant. The flat iron steak was perfectly cooked and the paired truffle fries were delectable. The fries are a must have. We also enjoyed the daily fish special of the Mediterranean Sea bass. Light with the skin on and crispy. Everything was delicious.

Have eaten here before and loved it. This time the food was a little lacking. The oysters were great but the mussels were overdone. The Bibb lettuce salad was quite good and the French onion soup was tasty, though not my favorite. The service was excellent and the waiter (Braulio) was incredibly attentive and accommodating. Would definitely recommend for the ambiance.

Bouchon Bistro in Yountville was a fantastic place to go for our anniversary celebration. Their food never disappoints! The service and ambience was great too... cute French Bistro in Yountville (Napa area). Highly recommend for lunch and dinner if you're in the Napa area.

We went on a Friday night. The food was amazing. The restaurant inside was just a bit loud inside. But everyone seemed to be having a great time. We sat outside where it a bit quieter. We started with foie mousse, escargot, oysters. Every thing was so relish!! The steak and pom frites. It was very tender and good. I would order it again. The trout almondine was moist and delicious.

We also had a bottle of the Paul Hobbs Katherine Lindsey Pinot it was amazing as well.

The service was on point. I will definitely be going back.

The service was particularly poor, we had a rotation of different servers at our table and each had to be told what we had already asked someone else for. Apparently, the servers knew the people sitting next to us, because there was a parade of staff chatting with them with their backs to us - one actually squeezed in between our table an theirs (twice) resting his butt on the edge of our table as he had his conversations.
We eat seafood, vegetables and dairy and found the food to be mediocre. Maybe the meat is better.
The experience was more suited to a "French" bistro at Epcot center, and worse than any tourist trap "bistro" near major attractions in France.
Very overpriced and inauthentic

I don't know, maybe we ordered the wrong food? But yes! Terra in St. Helena or Solbar in Calistoga is way better , and the space inside is too congested, it feels like you're eating along with strangers, the tables are too close to each other.
