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
D some pain nut that hostess was the worst and should nit working in an renvitmrnu, opjgj

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.

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.

A genuine culinary experience. We are from Montreal that has its own share of fantastic bistros. We also travel to Europe frequently. Kudos to your team for an all round genuine and delicious memorable fine dining experience. Best steak we've had in recent memory. Highly recommend!!

This place was very yummy! The flavor profile of the food was complex and played well with the wines suggested by our waitress. The steak that we ordered was overdone but they remedies the problem was fixed super fast! The service was amazing - one of the best I've had. I'd highly recommend.

 (Sacramento)·Dined on September 27, 2017

We had a very nice early dinner on a Wednesday afternoon. Appetizers of pigs ears (sliced, lightly battered and fried), garlic sausage on a bed of green lentils, a bibb salad with bleu cheese, and a frisee salad with pork belly lardons and a poached egg. All were excellent. The pasta special was disappointing. It was five pasta balls stuffed with ricotta cheese in a cream sauce topped with shaved truffles. Rather bland and over-priced at $48.

We have dined at Buchon several times (Yountville and Las Vegas) and especially like that they offer excellent wines by the glass, including a page of world class wines, including Napa cabernets and French bordeaux. We ordered a glass of Dom Perignon ($50) from the premium list and were disappointed with the size of the pour. It was served in a standard flute and at best about 2.5 ounces. Likewise, a glass of zinfandel was perhaps a bit more than three ounces. Disappointing, especially considering that the markup on bottles of wine here is 2.5 to 3 times retail.

 (Tampa)·Dined on September 27, 2017

What can I say....The Keller empire dominates with very expensive short pours as elsewhere in Yountsville (e.g. Ad Hoc). I know it's Napa, but it's dishonest. But the food! Please, this is NOT a 1-star. I remember Keller's "Rillettes de Saumon" from Bouchon in Vegas a few years ago , it was supernal, one of those dishes you remember through all of your worldwide dining. Not here , it was pedestrian. Steak/frites is a simple classic, right? But when they chose to serve it with a super rich braised shallot puree on top it becomes, in my view, a poor example for those of us who love the simple basic dish. I could go on, but I will stop here. I would only quote a recent SF Chronicle observation that opines that Sonoma welcomes you, but Napa takes you for granted...
