Bouquet Restaurant and Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Celebrated a late Valentines dinner. Great ambiance, service, and execution. My Ild Fashioned was on point. My wife was happy with the wine options. Only negative was I ordered a glass of house red on “tap.” It was served cold. Not the standard for red wine at a place like Bouquet. Food was delicious, best pork I have ever had. Talked to chef Brandon after dinner. Super pleasant, knowledgeable and engaging.
Excellent choice for Valentine's Day. We both selected the tasting menu with wine pairing. Each dish was unique and tasty. The wine pairings actually did compliment the food too. Very nice, quiet, and quaint place to enjoy a nice meal. Looking forward to returning soon.
This tiny gem offers a small, but nicely varied, food menu and an amazing bourbon/whiskey list. The list is bigger than the restaurant! The craft cocktails are unique and some of the best I've tasted (try the Smoked Old Fashioned - none other can compare!). The food is delicious (our group had a flat bread pizza, salmon and a burger and all were well prepared and tasty) and the service is nicely coordinated among the staff.
The cuisine was excellent and the service was outstanding. The ambience was casual and informal. The noise level was at times quite high but diminished as the evening wore on. My friend and I never felt rushed. It is really a special place made even more so by the presence of my companion. We both agreed that we would return.
I was excited to introduce the restaurant to 11 new comers. I called before bc I thought maybe there were some pickier eaters and the birthday girl had a few issues with the tasting menu (shrimp allergy and did not care for the taste of meat- particularly beef) I was told she could order the tasting and be accomendated with other options. She mentioned to the server that she loved fish just not meat. I was disappointed that she was served the first dish (shrimp) just minus the shrimp sub apples (the dish lost a lot of flavor served this way) and the 3rd course (a meat substitute that is intended to taste like meat but is not). She doesn’t like beef so eating something that is supposed to taste like beef was probably a bad choice. She probably would have been much better off ordering the salmon off the menu and enjoyed her meal much more. I think it’s the servers job to provide this type of guidance. I feel that the server should have explained the options or substitutions to give her a choice in the matter. Otherwise, I know my group was a little high mainteance and picky so the server did as well as she could have with those types of eaters. I love Bouquet and eat there often but I will have to think twice before I bring a more complicated new comers again.
They have the Impossible Burger!!!! And their toppings compliment it very well. I want to go back every week just to eat this! Also, bourbon selection is on point. I love that we can do a fancy dinner with wine and tasting menu in the dining room, but still have the option to sit at the bar with a burger and bourbon on less special nights.
We had the cocktails (the Negroni is outstanding!), mushroom soup (needed salt), the flatbread (perfect starter to share), and the duck (superb!). The service was excellent. We tried the draft wine and it was suprisingly good. We sat upstairs where the noise level is better than on the ground floor. We were on our way to a concert and this was a stellar choice for our pre-concert dinner.
Bouquet is one of my favorite restaurants in this area and my go-to for a special occasion. My husband and I recently celebrated my birthday there and love the food and drink options, with prix-fixe and wine pairings to the standard menu. Enjoyed a bottle of the best champagne I have ever tasted, and the service and quality of food are always exceptional. The special occasion complimentary champagne starts a special evening out right. Especially love locally sourced, quality ingredients. Made my birthday dinner a wonderful night out!
The food and service is always lovely at Bouquet. We appreciate that they source ingredients locally as much as possible. The pork with lentils and whipped goat cheese was a pleasant surprise for me who rarely eats pork. My husband enjoyed the chicken and risotto. We began the meal with a surprisingly large charceuterie plate. It was almost a meal unto itself - certainly could accommodate 4 people for an appetizer. The lemon bar with candied ginger meringue was a perfect ending to our birthday dinner. Cheers!
My wife and I discovered this Gem several years ago when looking for a unique experience and have never been disappointed.
Since or discovery we routinely visit to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays and any speial occasion because we know it will not disappoint.
The food is always awesome, we always get the charcuterie mix up the entry and get a desert. Mix in some wine a smoked old fashioned or a beer created by the Chef and it is a complete experience.
We recommend it to everyone who will listen to us.
This was our first visit to Bouquet with a group of friends (6). The restaurant was cozy and welcoming when we entered the main floor and the bartender greeted us right away. We were seated on the 2nd floor, which also had a cozy vibe and a bar. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable and provided great service. The menu was a bit limited, as it only had one steak option (flank steak), and one chicken option (chicken risotto), which seemed odd for a restaurant of this type, at this price point. The appetizer and dessert options were a bit limited, as well (bread was considered an appetizer). The sweet potato soup was fantastic on a snowy, cold night. The drinks were delicious, as were our entrees. Our only major complaint was the noise level. We were seated near a large, loud, group and could barely hold a conversation. It would have been nice if a group that large had been seated in the more private room, adjacent to where we were seated, as the more drinks that were enjoyed, the louder it became. All in all, a nice evening.
My wife and I ordered Duck which we both order from time to time so we like the entree and know what to expect. Both of our entrees were under cooked. Our server didn't check back with us after our entrees arrived for a few minutes but it was New Years Eve. When I finally got their attention she remarked "that's how we prepare duck". I asked her to take both back and she remarked "so you want it well done". No just not under cooked I'm not into eating raw poultry is what I thought but I said no just cooked a little more. She brought it back 10 minutes later and never followed up asking if we were satisfied. Our friends did like their meal so don't order the duck and expect in different service and you won't be disappointed.
This was the second time I've eaten at Bouquet. The first time was great. This time was just good. Appetizers (Brussels Sprouts and charcuterie board) were great. But entree was just average. Meal with one round of drinks and bottle of wine ran around $225 for 3.
