Had a wonderful brunch on Monday before we headed back to AZ after a great weekend in Napa. We always end our trip at Bouchon and they never disappoint.

Lunch outside at this faux French Bistro (faux only because it's in CA) was a lovely experience. Careful attention to detail by the staff, well chosen ingredients, and excellent execution are hallmarks of Chef Keller's empire. This afternoon lunch lived up to the model. Moule et frites with a lovely Meursault. Maybe it is really a French Bistro!

It should have been a special occasion but our waitress was challenged. After waiting for about 30-40 minutes while people all around us were getting their food promptly, we asked where our asparagus salads were. She said she would check on them (I actually think she forgot to put in the order) and they came out quickly. We shared the “Steak Bouchon ($59). What a huge disappointment. Not only was the “eye of the ribeye” small and thin but it was over cooked and even with the aid of their Bernaise sauce (which was also poor) it was a very unpleasant main course. I would have sent it back but by the time it came we had already been there so long that we were hungry. The frites as always were superb and the cream brûlée was good. We hadn’t been there for a couple of years, but both the service and food this time was not nearly as good as we remembered except for the asparagus salad. To complicate matters further, your $25 dining reward wouldn’t open or print but rather than keep us there forever, since the manager couldn’t figure it out either, he took the $25 of the bill, we paid it and left.

Wasn’t all together terrible. The deviled eggs were tasty and olives were just olives. Ordered the sea bass and it wasn’t very flavorful. The croque madame was soggy and not very good. The desserts were very good. Seating is close to others but was fine. Had higher hopes for this restaurant.

My second visit to Bouchon. 4 years apart. My first visit was a really good meal.
My wife came this time. Her response to most of the food was “yeah, it’s good”, “not as good as I had (at this place or that place)”. Overall she thought the meal was decent. The waiter was good and friendly. We did have to ask for the last glass of the bottle of wine we ordered. We could see it on the counter after they took our glasses away. I think this was the back waiter’s doing. He took it out of the ice bucket and put it on the counter. The waiter was cool and filled up our glasses from another bottle after he realized what happen. My wife ordered her steak Med-well but received it med-rare. The kitchen did fix it but it was more medium than med-well.
Over a decent experience but not a “wow” experience. I don’t think I can recommend or not recommend.

Okay food but very pricey for an average meal. Cheapest glass of Cabernet was $20, which is ridiculous, in my opinion. Service was pretty terrible. No attention whatsoever and seemed like we were keeping our waiter from doing something more important. With all the wonderful restaurants in the area, I feel certain there are better options available with much better service.

The experience was fun. The service was incredible. The staff was very accommodating and gave good suggestions when we asked for them. The food was very good. Steak frites was amazing. Mussel entree was just okay. Honestly, they were overcooked but the flavor was nice. I would go again definitely but stick with steak frites.

Pretty disappointed this time. The tables are too close together and the music too loud. Not the place for a romamtic dinner with next table 6 inches away. Hard to carry on a conversation over the din. Ordered lamb and it was tough to cut and a bit undercooked. Third time was not the charm for the expense involved. Wont be back for a while. Poor value

My wife and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary at Bouchon this year. We had been there before and regularly stop for macarons when we drive through Yountville.

Our experience was impeccable. Everything from the sweet card from Bouchon wishing us happy anniversary to the cheese plate at the end of our evening was simply perfect.

My wife enjoyed the sole, which was perfectly prepared and deboned at our table. My rib eye with pomme frites was out of this world. Normally I avoid a rib eye steak because it tends to be too fatty. This steak was lean, incredibly seasoned, and served with a wonderful bernaise sauce. I highly recommend upgrading the frites to the black truffle option.

We will return again and again as Thomas Keller and his Bouchon team have routinely created spectacular evenings for us every time we dine there.

I love the food at Bouchon, don't get me wrong. We have eaten here many, many times. But... this last visit the music made the dining experience almost unpalatable, and that's hard to do at a Thomas Keller restaurant. Somehow they played a robo station that featured hits from the past with a sampled pump-pump base. SOUNDS... pump pah pump... OF... pump-pah-pump SILENCE.... We asked if the music could be turned down, and it was perhaps... but only a smidge. The result was in no way an atmosphere reminiscent of a French bistro. We could have been in a Food Court. We certainly like good music, but the station Bouchon played was one where the original artist probably gets nothing, the beat overwhelmed the generic singers and the result rendered the otherwise excellent dining experience less than satisfactory. It is to be hoped that powers that be at Bouchon will take this criticism to heart so we may once again enjoy Bouchon to the fullest. Music should be in keeping with the ambience. Jazz, Edith Piaf, Django Reinhardt, classical... Really... we are open to almost anything but PUMP PAH PUMP.

The meal, service was fabulous - really about all that needs to be said - highly enjoyable experience. That's the plus - only negative and it's because of the space and its acoustics, was a bit on the loud/noisy side, but everything else, excellent service - spot on!

I recently enjoyed a great dinner with my wife at Bouchon. We likely had a new server, who appeared very nervous at first but became more comfortable as the meal progressed, and did a great job. I had the roasted chicken, which is likely the best piece of chicken I've ever eaten. My wife had the trout which was very good as well. The oysters and other appetizers were very good as was the creme brulee. I can't wait to go back.

It was a friends’ gathering plus my daughter birthday. We had 4 kids and 4 adults. It wasn’t our first time but definitely first time for my friends. Our server wasn’t enthusiastic about serving us. Toward the end when a bus boy cleaning the table, he dropped a bowl of ketchup in my friend’s jean. Without any apologizing, he left the table. As my friend tried to wipe the ketchup off, our server brought over a bottle of baking soda mixed with water to my friend. Again, without any sincere apologizing or gesture. Overall it was a unpleasant dinner and a bad experience for my friends. For a Michelin star restaurant, we would expect a better service.
