We were greeted by a very friendly hostess with a great attitude. Always nice to be welcomed by someone who seems to love their job. We asked for a table outside, she said sure, let me check, came back and led us outside to a very nice table.
Our server, who was awesome, Braulio was the best, he was pleasant, professional and a treat to talk to. The only hiccup for the night was an overdressed salad, Braulio noticed it and said he would take it off the bill, without me pointing it out.
The wine list is great, the sommelier was knowledgeable and totally approachable. It was our last night in the Napa valley and it was a perfect, low key way to end our trip.
I know I haven’t mentioned the food other than the overdressed salad, but don’t take that to mean our meal wasn’t great, it was. Always look forward to dining at Bouchon.

This restaurant could be described as a very typical bistro, nothing overly imaginative but an offering where most people can find something that appeals to them. As far as service, it is very quick, unlike a true French bistro, which makes one wonder how many things are pre-assembled/pre-made. Our waiter may as well have had his eyes closed as he recited "the drill," giving us the impressions that he could care less about customer experience. Maybe the "Keller" brand needs to be re-visited in an attempt to reclaim some appreciation for the customer and appreciation of food.

The steak frites was great tasting and tender, but the crown jewel was the French onion soup! So flavorful and decadent your taste buds won’t be the same.

Good venue. The food is good but not outstanding. We sat at the bar and the women Bartender was not very well trained and uninterested in us.
Mostly all tourists... no locals.
But still I would recommend.

Everything here was wonderful food service ambiance the only thing if I had to pick one thing that wasn't great would be the bathroom only had one water faucet so only one person can wash his hands at once but that's not really worth taking a full star off overall a great experience

We’d just missed Chef by 10 minutes and were disappointed to not have a chance to meet him, but the food was truly delicious and the service was excellent as expected. Everyone around us seemed to very much enjoy their meal and dining experience. Bib lettuce salad was fresh and delicious, the chicken and trout were amazing. The citrus tart dessert was not excellent as it tasted not as fresh as it could be (crust stale), but it was not bad. All in all a great experience.

Excellent meal, great service, beautiful restaurant. I rather enjoyed the Orielles Cocochan (pig ears) and Lyonaisse Salad was excellent. I also had the French Onion which was great. My wife loved the Trout and Shrimp Cocktail.

A little disappointed. I had expected more from a Michelin Star restaraunt, especially Thomas Keller’s.
I have been to many Michelin Star restaurants and my experience was mediocre at best.
The food actually came out too fast (5 minutes after we ordered), made me think it was pre-cooked. The steak was sent back to be recooked and the mussels sauce was just so-so,
The service was great, but the food - not so much.

Food was excellent. Service was attentive. I don’t think anything on the menu would be a miss. It is definitely loud and if you want a romantic evening it is not the place, unless you are the type that can ignore all the noise......but to me worth the noise for some great food

I was there twice in one day.

the service was impeccable at both lunch and dinner.

The trout and salads at lunch were wonderful.

At dinner the bibb lettuce salad, salmon, and steak were just OK.

the waiter was very kind to trade the pork callots for the salmon

Bouchon Napa is at the top of its game -- whether brunch, lunch or dinner, whether inside or on the terrace, whether the food or the service or the room there is excellence, creativity and consistent excellence. We have joined friends and family at Bouchon so many times and we've never been disappointed -- you won't be either.

We had a nice lunch, I think maybe our expectations were too high. Our food was delicious, our server was excellent although she needed more backup. It was a noisy atmosphere. There was really nothing special or memorable about our lunch. Although I would not return considering all the choices one has in Napa, it could have been an off day, all restaurants have them. I think they just need to pay more attention to detail.

Horrible service. Disappointing Dinner.

My husband and I ate here on our trip to Napa Valley. We made reservations and were excited for our dinner at Bouchon. There was no one at the host stand when we arrived. We waited several minutes for someone to help us. The restaurant is very noisy with super cramped tables, not good for the romantic dinner we were hoping to experience. Our waiter came by and we ordered a drink then he came back a while later saying they were out of something for that drink and couldn't make it. He offered no substitute or recommendation, just disappeared for 15 minutes or so. We were never told the specials or anything about the menu. Our food was perfectly cooked, classic french cuisine, but nothing we hadn't had before. Also my husband was constantly bumped into by wait staff passing by the entire meal. I would skip dinner here next time...not worth the hype.

We had a great experience and for the cost it was well worth it!

Service from Rocio was excellent! We had the Moules Au Saffron (mussels), fines herbes omelette, and gnocchi a la Parisienne along with truffle fries. The mussels were excellent, the omelette cooked to perfection , and gnocchi were rich, soft, and oh so good!

Would highly recommend this restaurant. Just make sure to make a reservation. Would return soon!
