This no reservation restaurant is a throwback to French restaurants of years ago, with all the old staples. Food was really good! We arrived early so had no trouble being seated. Note: Monday's-Wednesday's all the mussels you can eat, prepared various ways.

Non-traditional eatery that provides a sense of home with a simple setup, but an exquisite mix of flavors in the food. I had the duck, family members had: rabbit mash (forget exact name), liver/ onions (on special), and cordon bleu. All were extremely pleased with...More

That is the motto of the restaurant. This is a French style restaurant. It was very good. I would have eaten there more than once on our visit to Asheville, but we don't do that; too much to see and do in this world. Good...More

This restaurant has good standard French fare in a very noisy environment. We waited an hour for our table on a Thursday evening.

The restaurant was crowded on the Monday night I visited - with a 45 minute wait for a table. I was able to squeeze into a seat at the very small bar with no wait. The Bartender was very welcoming and I was acknowledged immediately,...More

No, they do not. Bouchon Asheville is walk-in only, first come, first serve.
Is it true that bouchon has a bakery and serves crissanrs and other breakfast items in the morning.
