It is really as good as they say!!! Ok, since Napa is kinda known for good food, the decision was made to have a wonderful meal in Yountville. It has great reviews and its bakery next door has a line that never seems to end. Why Not. The atmosphere is like many French Restaurants that I have been too with the exception that the food here is great. I enjoyed the Mussels from Maine while my wife devoured some of the best gnocchi that we have ever tasted. My only regret was not having the soup or ordering some more of that delicious bread from the bakery. OH, lets not forget about the deserts. We had some Chocolate that was so good that my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Wonderful french bistro experience in beautiful Yountville. The food is very good, if not quite "excellent" - and expensive - but the atmosphere and service are wonderful. Definitely an experience to enjoy.

Our late dinner (9:30) didn't really live up to expectations. Our server let the Bouchon team down, failing to offer us any drinks until we had been seated for over 15 minutes. The lamb shank was delicious, but the gnocchi lacked seasoning. Dessert portions were huge, the lemon tart was quite good but the Creme Brûlée caramel was too thin and a tad over browned, tasting very bitter.

Impeccable service, all dishes on point, chic ambiance. If you're not ready to drop $500 on French Laundry, try Bouchon. It's certainly not at the same level as FL, and a bit cramped, but very worthwhile. Chocolate mousse with burnt orange cream = delish!

I was slightly disappointed by Bouchon, partly because of its hype and partly because of some missteps. Good: - The bread was great. It came warm and had an interesting shape, it was crusty and buttery. Really awesome bread. - The warm asparagus salad was the best thing of the evening. The asparagus was fresh and was packed with flavor. The poached egg and hollandaise added great flavor and texture to the dish. And the tomato confit was a lovely color and flavor addition as well. Not only was I impressed with the creativity of the dish, I also think it was executed well since there were a lot of distinct flavors to balance. Meh, not so impressed: - The special duck gizzard and lobster salad was flavorful but was on the pricier side and was a small portion. - Bone marrow was good but the capers were very acidic and didn't balance well with the bone marrow and very intense savory sauce. - The oxtail ragu sounded amazing in description but was too heavy to enjoy fully. The cut of meat is already rich, and was drowned in a dark heavy full-flavored sauce with mashed potatoes. And when served with bread, it was just too much. The result was me being overstuffed without eating too much. The bone marrow plus oxtail ragu was too heavy. Perhaps it was my poor judgment, but the waiter should have warned me. I wanted to have dessert, but couldn't because I was so full. But then again, none of the desserts enticed me. They were all too classic and nothing interesting jumped out at me. Even so, I still give Bouchon 4 stars because, individually, each dish was still good on its own. But the entire meal added together was a little much.

This is another shocking moment... how could I have possibly not written a review here? This is a place I dream of, nearly, daily.... and we go at lunchttime knowing it's hours of gluttony. We order *EVERYTHING* (nearly without hyperbole). Oysters, Seafood... the Charcuterie is amazing. The onion soup is wonderful, and there are times it falls victim to all the other items we want to share at the beginning - the terrine de foie de volaille is amazing - chicken liver mousse with toasted baguette. It is *SO* rich. Just the best - I am no liver fan, at all. This is a must for when we go. The country pate is fantastic, but the rillettes of the fresh and smoked salmon is unbelievable. One of my favorites. Oh... I got the Onion Soup anyway. =) Much of the time we only end up going through hots d'oeuvres, salads, cheeses, and seafood. I mean, who can blame us. But we enjoy the Croque Madame quite a but, and a side of their remarkable truffle fries never hurt. This is once a year type of event, and we try to make that each day. ha =) CANNOT WAIT to return! =)
