Highly acclaimed chef Thomas Keller (of The French Laundry) is behind this beautiful Yountville restaurant. Enjoy excellent French bistro cuisine in a dining room offering wonderful Parisian ambiance.

We invite you to visit Bouchon Bakery, an authentic, country-style boulangerie located next door Bouchon Bistro. The Bakery serves traditional French breads and pastries and is open from 7am - 7pm daily.

Bouchon is the little sister of the famous French Laundry restaurant in Yountville, Ca. Unlike the French Laundry, Bouchon is a traditional French style bistro. Authentic Parisienne ambiance and cuisine make this semi-casual restaurant a wine country jewel. Then comes the awesome service and delicious food. The lettuce for your salad and other vegetables are harvested across the street from Thomas Keller's garden. Considering the quality of the food and service this place is a bargain. Be aware that a bottle of wine at Bouchon will cost you at least $100, but you can bring your own for a $35 corkage fee. With all the restaurant hype in the Wine Country this un-pretentious cafe is still one of the best!

Bouchon's authentic French bistro cuisine is served in a room that feels like Paris. Great cocktails, knowledgeable waiters, and on the back wall is a group of painted items with seemingly unrelated phrases underneath that can cause endless conversation. Oh! The food! Stunning! Just like you can't get a bad meal in France, any menu choice lights up the guest. You see it as each course is served to you or someone close to your table.
Dining at Bouchon is a charming experience. Thank you, Thomas Keller.

Husband and I both left the restaurant feeling very full. Servings were larger than expected for a Michelin rated restaurant and we were already satisfied just with the epi bread and the sumptuous French Onion Soup and Celery Root puree. We both tried the Croque Madame. I felt that there was barely any Mornay sauce on mine (a little dry) and the serving for French Fries was half the plate. Even though we were planning to have dessert, we ended our meal and decided to get some sweet treats from the bakery next door instead. Service was great (our server was attentive). Space was somewhat cramped. We were not asked if we were celebrating but we were celebrating our anniversary hence the trip to Napa.

Amazing service. Good ambience. Really enjoyed the beef tartare, French onion soup, mussels with saffron. The chicken was also decent. Having the reservation helps cut the wait for sure!

Bouchon did not disappoint! Our Server Michael was excellent..he made us feel very comfortable and had great suggestions and gave the service you’d expect at Bouchon. The Trout was thee best I’ve ever had! We’ll be back!

This was my very first trip to yountville and was excited to try Bouchon but the hype didnt live up to its expectation. There is definitely way better places to eat. The cheese plate was good but the lamb and fish was so-so. Definitely overpriced for what you are getting.

Service was slow. Consider a water filter to reduce the chlorine smell from the tap water. The trout was good.

We wanted our last meal to be from Bouchon before the drive home. I started with a mimosa and my husband had a Bloody Mary he had the grilled cheese sandwich with their amazing fries. I had one of the best salads I have ever ate. It had a bacon dressing to die for with big cubes on bacon and croutons so yummy. Of course you must go over to their bakery for a few items to take home. Wonderful ending to a great weekend.

Went here with my husband for his birthday. Definitely transported us to Paris as it greatly reminded us of bistros we have eaten at there. We sat close to other couples with whom we struck up friendly conversation.

I ordered the Sturgeon with salad and my husband had mussels with the endive salad. We also ordered the escargot at the recommendation of the people next to us. The escargot were fantastic - very tender with a great puff pastry. My husband enjoyed the mussels and we both thought the Sturgeon was fantastic - would definitely order again. It was served with a grapefruit beurre blanc that was not overpowering. We brought in our own bottle of wine and the corkage fee was a bit high ($35). I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the French Fries that came with the mussels - some of the best fries we've ever eaten.

One of our go-to places in Napa Valley. It’s the original Bouchon restaurant and one of the three Thomas Keller places in Yountville, the others being Ad Hoc and his magnum opus, Michelin 3-starred French Laundry. Bouchon and Bouchon Bakery next door offer incredibly delicious meals and baked products. With respect to the bakery, lines are always out the door with people enjoying the baked goodies on the outdoor chairs and tables.
