Sat at a table near the bar and windows. Noisy, and cold. I didn’t love the actual restaurant ambience. The service was excellent. Our appetizers were awesome and so was the bread. Dinner was good, but I was not wowed. One and done for me.

Tasty and well prepared French food in adorable settings. We sat outside, beautiful day and the heaters were on at just the right temperature. Service was great. I wanted to be wowed by this Michelin star, so my expectations were higher. That said, the chicken dish was well made, not bland, not over cooked or dry, and the swordfish social I ordered actually cake undercooked and had to be sent back. They were quick and accommodating and apologetic— can’t ask for more. Plus the spinach sauce below it was amazing. The bread was also on point.

Lovely spot and I recommend it, just next time I won’t come here expecting a very unique Michelin star experience. We will likely come back, but maybe after trying the other highly rated spots nearby.

My husband and I came to try Bouchon and they did not disappoint. All staff were friendly and attentive, even our neighboring diners were fun and friendly. It was loud but the atmosphere was lovely. The only thing I can say about the food was it’s amazing! I don’t think you can choose wrong.

This was my 5th or 6th visit to Bouchon. As always, the food and service were excellent. The consistency is what I appreciate most. You know whenever you go, the food will be of the same high quality. This is the only restaurant that I actually seek to order roast chicken. The chicken is incredible and I'm not one to normally go for what is typically the blandest item on the menu. My wife ordered the steak and it was great, as usually. Whether you are looking for a special occasion meal or just want a good night out with a friend, you cannot go wrong at Bouchon!

Everything we ordered from start to finish was very good. Mussels & escargot were so yummy! The Aviation well balanced although luxardo cherries would of made it even better. The ribeye was hands down the best I’ve ever had! My husband scallops were perfection! Yes I know, I’m going crazy with the exclamation marks, but it’s true. For dessert my husband ordered profiteroles and I the lemon tart. Both were amazing! We will definitely be coming back. I’ll be dreaming for weeks about that ribeye alone.

The food was amazing, everything was fresh and delicious . The service was helpful and excellent. When I walked through the aisles bus people and waiters stepped to the side to let me walk through. Held the door to the outside for me. I notice these things because it usually doesn’t happen. Everyone is well trained at their specific job. Judi Kirshbaum

We were seated promptly and the general ambience was nice. Most of our food was good, but I was sadly very disappointed by the moules dish, I found the saffron in the broth too overpowering to enjoy; I had to send the dish back, which is something I rarely do... I just couldn’t eat it. Thankfully, the portion of Bouchon steak and fries was enough to feed us both. Our server was very nice about it but I can tell she didn’t really know how to handle the situation and was uncomfortable, though she did offer something else to try from the menu. I am also disappointed because I specifically put in a request to make it extra special for my boyfriend as it’s his birthday and it’s his first time in Napa. Unfortunately, no recognition, not even of his birthday, was done. I still tipped the server just over 15% of the full bill (she had taken the moules off but I added the dish back into the final calculation). All this being said, the sweetbread special, steak, and truffle fries we had were delicious, the salad with warm goat’s cheese was nothing special, and the moules were an utter disappointment. On our way out, I spotted the maitre’d texting or on his phone, not paying attention, so he didn’t even respond when we said thank you. I hate to say it but I finally have my first bad experience at a Thomas Keller restaurant (I’ve been to all of them except for the French Laundry), and will not be coming back to this location for a special occasion anytime soon.

We had the special pork dish which was not what we expected and would not order it again. Scallops were amazing. Mussels were killer! French onion soup was good along with the butter lettuce salad.
Desserts were all amazing. We had 4 different ones between the 4 of us.

The noise level is too much, the choice of music not good, the music was so loud people had to speak loudly and therefore the intensity of noise was over the top. French bistros do not use music and it makes for a lovelier experience. I can understand using music when the place is empty or not so crowded.

This continues to be one of my top 10 favorite restaurants in the country. The menu is so interesting, varied, and so well done. As always Thomas Keller ingredients, style and approach are inspired. The tables can be a bit tight, especially for a big guy like me but worked fine. The staff are total pros, knowledgeable about food and wine, not obtrusive but always there when you need them, so attentive and genuine. You can craft your own experience, light/heavy, wine centric or not, seafoods or meats or vegetarian... Such a wonderful experience every time

Not the best restaurant we have visited in the Napa area. We were seated next to the bar, high noise level. Our waiter seemed too busy for us, a wait for initial service other than water. No mention of the specials until we asked. The trout was good, not worth $29. It was served on an oval dish that moved each time I took a forkful of food! I had to hold the plate steady to eat.

Bouchon was everything we expected for an anniversary. The only interesting part was upon arrival we were told we could stand and the “oyster” (connected to the bar) and order drinks but the bar tender never acknowledged us. The manager finally came over to serve us. We also noted on opentable we where there for a special occasion which was never acknowledged. Other then that our server was phenomenal and his recommendations were on point with our expectations.

Previous visit was cery good. This time was disappointing. We had to ask for some bread. The lamb was room temp. The subsequent serving was warm but too chewy to swallow. The waiter took the lamb off the bill, so we only spent $200 for dinner. I am not sure why my half inch thick steak was $71.

We've been to Bouchon before and liked it. We went back and had a steak a lasagna that people supposedly raved about and a chocolate gateau for dessert. I must say all 3 were unremarkable. The truffle lasagna was a new low in expensive disappointments. But, service and ambiance was great!
