Had a great dinner. Considering the COVID-19 restrictions, everything felt the same. The spacing was perfect and it was actually nice having more space between guests. The food was amazing as usual and I can’t wait to be back.

I’ve been a regular for 4 years. Ask for Heather. She’s amazing and is great at helping you navigate cuisine you never knew you needed. The dishes here are hearty and delicious; impressive. I no longer live in Chicago but I visit Le Bouchon at least once every time I’m here. Ten stars.

French onion soup was very good. The burger was also very good. Escargot, steak frites and cream brûlée were all average at best.

This place is so good we drove through a snowstorm to make our reservation. Rabbit pot pie is my wife’s favorite. We’ve also had the duck dinner, the roasted chicken and the lamb shank special. The staff is fun and knowledgeable. The wine list is approachable. It’s hard to go wrong here. Wish we lived closer!

Delightful! Ideal for a date night or a special occasion. Very intimate setting. The wine list and dinner were superb. We had the charcuterie, a variation on French onion soup, and oxtail Bourgogne-style — all excellent!

First time here! My boyfriend took me for a lovely birthday dinner. Have always wanted to go and I'm so happy I finally got the chance! He got the burger & fries which were FANTASTIC and I got the Green Circle Chicken which I'll be dreaming about for months. So tasty. We both also had delicious cocktails and some lovely creme brulee for dessert. Highly recommend!

We went to Le Bouchon on Tuesday evening for my husband's birthday dinner. We went there for his birthday dinner last year and were thrilled that they re-opened for indoor dining so we could go again.

Every thing we ordered was absolutely delicious. Our server was super thorough and super friendly - and made a tremendous wine recommendation that went well with both our entrees.

We'll definitely be back!

Le Bouchon remains a real gem - that bit of France in Chicago - now through two generations of ownership.

Now during this time of COVID-19, we can not go to France, but we can experience France at Le Bouchon.

Wife and I went there for a nice Friday lunch. It was one of the more pleasant and memorable meals we’ve had in a long time. It was a casual but incredible meal. We had some great wine, oysters, salad, soup, and a rabbit pot pie that I still think about. Everything was made with love by a team with obvious skill and who uses fresh and premium ingredients. Will definitely be back soon since we’re new to the neighborhood.

We have been consistently going to Le Bouchon for the past 9 or so months. We saw on IG that they were serving a crock madame for lunch and had to have it. It was absolutely delicious. I was afraid it was going to be dry and not have enough béchamel but that wasn’t the case at all. Perfectly done. And their French fries are amazing. Small and crispy and salty!! We love their cassoulet and the lapin pot pie as well.

Although I have been there many, many times, I had not been to Le Bouchon in years. I was glad to find that it is as fabulous as it's always been. The food, the staff and the vibe are all absolutely top notch! It's easily one of my very favorite restaurants in Chicago and has been for a very long time. I can't wait to go back!!!
