Very good bistro food at restaurant prices, little overpriced for quality and presentation. Tables extremely packed in , making ambiance very noisy and not very intimate. Service was good and friendly waiters, but rather quick and had a slightly being processed feeling. Was an enjoyable evening overall.

We were celebrating our 12 year anniversary and it didn’t disappoint. The host greeted us with a anniversary card and our server also wished us a happy anniversary too. The only negative to this restaurant is that it’s a small place and the noise level was very loud. We didn’t mind the close proximity to your neighbors while dinning, but it could be another bad mark for some patrons. My steak Bouchon was cooked to perfection but my wife’s steak frites was only ok. We had a great time and the restaurant made our anniversary a dinning experience we won’t forget.

The hostess is unfriendly. I’ve been multiple times to Bouchon and it’s the same very unwelcoming woman. The food tends to come out before you even get your drinks which is very annoying and feels like a chain restaurant when it happens. The food is remarkable but they need to work out the service issues.

Appetizers were okay and ended up being the best part of the meal. Our waiter forgot to put in our entrees so it took forever to get out food, which ended by not being good/ Only 1 out of the 4 of us liked our food. It was disappointing.

Outstanding service from start to finish — sat on the patio for a more intimate experience. Every recommendation was on point, and when we didn’t love the initial wine selection, the sommelier immediately consulted for another option that paired perfectly. Everything was perfect! Definitely opt for the steak Bouchon instead of the regular steak frites and upgrade to the truffle fries. Escargot was amazing, as were the profiteroles.

Oysters, Bibb salad and steak Bouchon
I love the bernaise
We enjoy the profiteroles with our post meal cappuccino

Our favorite table is in the bar area so it was reserved for us

Always a wonderful experience

Took my wife here for Mother's Day, and the service and food were very good. My two biggest gripes are a somewhat limited menu, and the selections of wine that were not in the $300 to $500 range was pretty limited. We dine out often and I know alcohol is a big source of revenue for restaurants, but come on - there's a limit. Can't fault the food, though, as my steak was awesome.

We I made the reservation I thought I was going somewhere special. Turns out we were 2 more $$$. There was 7 inches between the tables, 7. You couldn't talk, quietly. No one was talking you had no privacy. The food was good . I think, you just couldn't enjoy it. I would Not recommend!

We had an amazing experience at Bouchon! Our server José delivered impeccable service. We had an appetizer of oysters. For dinner I ordered the trout; my husband ordered the Bouchon steak. We loved our food! José’s recommendation to order half bottles of wine worked out wonderfully. Sancerre and Modicum (Keller’s special blend) were our choices. Delightful!
Our dessert was mango and blackberry sorbets and cappuccinos. Can’t wait to return!

The waffles I had for lunch were not the best as they were cold and should be hot

We went for an early dinner and overall had a nice time. Service was good, nothing exceptional but nothing to complain about. The food was good, we ordered from the specials: duck breast and the crispy sea bass. Both were delicious. We didn't have any room for dessert but we did swing by the bakery for some sweets to go!

Bouchon’s brunch was an exquisite start to my day in Napa. Was seated promptly for my reservation time. (Recommendation: get a good seat in the dining room to capture the ambiance of old-world dining.) The kitchen and waitstaff’s attention to detail was top notch from start to finish. Props to my friendly and attentive server, Rocio! The food was excellent; the bread & butter alone (!!) transported me back to memories of traveling across northern France. 🇫🇷 Highly recommend.

My guest's steak frites we're good but my moules safran was not great. The mussels were gritty, and they were large and mealy too. I ate maybe 10% of them before I had to stop. Servers never once asked me how my meal was otherwise I would have told them. Also, no bread brought out at start of meal.
