Bouchard offers some old French standards as well as modern takes on seafood. We had delicious cod, salmon, and lobster dinners, and wonderful Grand Marnier souffles for dessert. A real treat.

A very nice French restaurant. My wife enjoyed the smoked butter on her salmon. My swordfish was prepared simply and was quite sublime. Service was very good. We would certainly go back.

We actually chose this restaurant originally because of the name - because we have a good friend at home whose last name is Bouchard, and we thought it would be funny to send a selfie of us at the restaurant. Silly, yes - but we...More

One person in your party needs to go into the restaurant and obtain the parking voucher. They will then direct you to the free parking lot.
