Took awhile to get a Saturday night reservation but well worth the wait. Everything that they serve is a work of art and the service is exceptional. Although the food was delicious, I’ve had better food at more casual locations but it’s really more about the whole dining experience. A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

This was my second time at Bouchard’s. It was just as excellent as the first time. Food was outstanding, as was the service. Another delightful experience. Can’t wait to return again.

Bouchard is one of the finest restaurants I have ever experienced. This restaurant is one of the main reasons we visit Newport R.I.
I would recommend Bouchard to anyone who appreciates fine dining.

Celebrated my fiancé birthday with her four girl friends. The food was 4 Star Michelin quality. Excellent wine list. I kindly requested a small all white birthday cake. They honored the request and delivered the most spectacular cake decorated with Strawberry's sliced to appear as blossoming flowers. Dan our waiter was incredible at handling the women. Best and most enjoyable party ever.

Quiet, first-class food, service and setting. Dan was excellent waiter; more like your personal advisor. Entire waitstaff was excellent. Not inexpensive but great value. Have paid much more in NYC for much less. Thanks to the Bouchard’s for a great evening.

Incredible restaurant from ambiance to service to food. I ordered the cold pate which was like eating “butter”! My wife and I had the Dover Sole, presentation was great and it was so good that neither of us wanted to finish eating! Highly recommend this restaurant.

We'll always have Paris, they say. Buy luckily, we'll always have Bouchard as well! As good as a dining experience gets. A little formality lifts the ordinary experience into something special. It is just the right amount that has made our numerous visits to Bouchard memorable and happy ones. It doesn't get any better than this, in every respect!

My wife and I love to go to Newport during the Christmas season to enjoy the town when its not so busy.
When we do, we love to treat ourselves to the beauty and delicious elegance that is Bouchard Restaurant!
The quality and presentation of the dishes the chef creates are always something special. And for the ultimate indulgence, you have to have a soufflé for desert! We will be back for more!!!

Excellent seating, better service, exquisite food. It was our 16th Anniversary, & while the company was hostile, the perfect bone in veal chop with crimini mushroom sauce, ending with a magnificent vanilla souffle and good to the last drop Cappuccino, made it an evening to remember gastronomicly.

We traditionally visit this Award Winning restaurant featuring exquisite French cuisine and exemplary service in early spring and around the holiday season. Otherwise, expect up to a two-month wait for a reservation during the high tourist season. Yes, its that good! I enjoyed the Breast of Duck and my wife ordered the Dover Sole - only one of two restaurants in the entire state that offer this delicate but exquisitely prepared fish. Each was a culinary experience. Our waiter also took the time to explain how each dish was prepared and offered suggestions on an accompanying wine selection. Our appetizers and desserts were wonderful as well. Truly an overall outstanding dining experience.

Been to Bouchard's before and always had a wonderful dining experience! This time Jed and Gloria were our servers, Jed remembered us from our last visit several months ago and proceeded to give us the superb service the restaurant is known for. I had a wonderful spring salad to begin the meal, followed by an excellent piece of salmon that was cooked to firmness without being dry. The profiteroles as a dessert were an excellent finishing touch to a wonderful meal. We'll come back again to Bouchard when we're in the area!

By far worth every cent spent. Dan, our captain for the evening was attentive, informative, professional and had a wonderful sense for knowing what his customers would enjoy. All of his suggestions hit the mark from before dinner cocktails to dessert and after dinner drinks. His warm and inviting personality made the evening celebration for two birthdays even more special.OH and the food??? Incredible! Truly one of the best meals any of the 4 of us have had...we've had a few too! Can not go wrong at Bouchard. First visit, but more to come!

Food was good but nothing special. They make a big deal about the dress code, even called us to remind us no jeans. No problem, we like to dress up a little for special dinners. Table next to us had 3 guys in jeans and collarless shirts. Ridiculous!
