Excellent food and service, ambiance is a little chaotic. Restaurant is very noisy and seating is basic. I was seated next to the server supply station and had servers kneeling inches beside me for my entire meal ( I reserved a table a month in advance). Great place for a casual meal with amazing food and service, not really good for special occasions. My mistake was coming here to celebrate my gf's 40th birthday.

Bouchon was incredible! My girl friends and I were on a weekend get away to Napa and this was our favorite stop! The food, the service and the ambiance was outstanding. This is a must stop if you find yourself in Yountville ❤️

Noise level was out of control! We all had major headaches when we left. We paid 10 dollars extra for truffle to be added to fries but there was little if not any added. The corkage fee for wine was 35 which is pricey.

We arrived early and were able to be seated right away. Our waiter, Brendan was full of hospitality. He gave us room to make our decisions without being pushy. Our food was amazing. My daughter went traditional French with trout almondine. I had the gnocchi with spring vegetables. We shared dessert. Crepe cake. The whole experience was worth every penny. It was a beautiful way to end our time in Napa Valley.

Wow.

The menu
The menu was great - there were the perfect number of options, and each of them sounded delicious. Not overwhelming in number of options; just enough to satisfy what you might be after - a chx option, 2 steak options, and 3 seafood options for the entree.

The ambiance
We sat on the patio under a heater, and it was much much quieter than being inside. Very lively inside. We enjoyed the small private patio.

The service
The sommelier was very kind and deferential, and pored over the list with one member of our party. We were all getting different meats, and we wanted one bottle for the party, so the choice was difficult. One of the 4 of us ordered the steak frites and was not satisfied with the temp of his steak. Not only did they comp the steak, but they brought us complimentary wine pairings for our entrees and comped dessert as well.

We will be going back next time we're in Yountville.

Had a birthday celebration last night; party of four. Really a perfect night. The service was attentive and the team was very knowledgeable. Food was outstanding from the apps, mains, cheese, and dessert. These guys are real pros. One tip- don’t fill up on the bread. Will definitely be back.

I had the veal which was recommended by our waiter. The cream sauce overwhelmed the rest of the flavors. I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would. My partner had the salmon entree and it was moist and flavorful. She enjoyed it very much. The noise level was too much. We were in a corner table for two flanked by two long tables filled with people. Our corner caught all of the sounds in the room. Also our table being in the corner didn’t have room for both our legs. I would not recommend using this location for a table setting. If we come back I would insist on another table. The service was excellent!

We were seated at a very cramped table and I had specified we were on a date. The noise level was incredibly loud. I wouldn’t say energetic I would say oppressive. They need to add some acoustical treatment on the walls and the ceiling to cut down that noise level. The food was great and the service was also great. I just wish it had been a little more pleasant ambience

The charcuterie and the duck confit were excellent. Unfortunately the other food we ordered missed the mark. The mussels lacked flavor, the onion soup did not have a savory balance (onions were very sweet) and the crouton was completely soaked and dissipated in the soup, and the gnocchi didn’t have much seasoning. The noise level prevented any conversation in this very crowded seating area. We probably won’t give it a second chance unless something changes.

The service and food are wonderful as expected. The spring salad was one of the best I had ever tasted. The noise level on a Sunday night was a bit loud, and some of our party had trouble hearing. For casual fine dining, this place doesn't disappoint with the food.

It was way too busy for our waiter to get to us and to give us any sort of real attention during our visit though he tried. What we ordered was mediocre at best and then they forgot to acknowledge a birthday in our party. In all honesty we had just been to the French Laundry which set our expectations for Bouchon by the same chief rather high and it barely reached mid level.

I was disappointed with our lunch. While the baby clams we had as an appetizer were small, tender and sweet, the croque madam entrée was a dull, uninspired dish, and over-priced for what it was.
We had a better experience on an earlier visit two or three years ago.
Despite this, I will admit I would recommend to others, and will go again.

Bouchon was the spot I picked for my birthday dinner. I was looking forward to a great French comfort dish. The menu was very disappointing, portions were small and food preparation was awful.
My husband had the salmon which cane with a delicious sauce.. the problem was, the sauce was on the bottom, then a layer of chunky veggies then the salmon. You could not get to the sauce without deconstructing the entire plate.
The waiter suggested the sausage for my meal. Although it was good, it was not outstanding nor was it anything I would consider ordering again. The presentation was not good.
Out of the 6 “ top name” restaurants we dined while in Yountville, Bouchon came in at the very bottom of our list.

Ordered:
1oz Caviar - it wasnt bad but it didnt have the nice saltiness that usualy compliments the toppings - the bread (great on its own) was taking away from experiencing the caviar
Mussells - bloated mussells and sauce that seemed too fishy or not fresh. Came with large fries
Croque Madame - ok but after the caviar with the same bread, it was a bit overwhelming. Also large truffle fries.
Bottle of sparkling wine.
