My husband and I visited Bouchard on the eve of our wedding. It was the perfect romantic spot and the food was absolutely fabulous! The best French onion soup that I've had in some time and the soufflé is a must for desert!

I pampered myself by eating here 3 out of the 4 days I was in Newport. Yes, it was expensive, but ah such amazing gourmet dinners. The lobster was delightful. Decor sedate. Could have done with up-dated music, not Frank Sinatra.

This is such a beautiful place; quiet and elegant with fantastic food, drinks and service. We had to wait a couple of days to get a reservation but having been there before, we knew it would be worth it and it was. Food is divinely delicious and it is an overall lovely experience.

Came here for a relaxing dinner and definitely that is what we had. Started out with the tower of shrimp that had a slight taste of cumin which to me made the dish! I loved it! I then tried the lobster bisque. Best I ever had. Dinner I ordered the rack of lamb and it was great. No disappointments here... More

I just want to state I would of gave out visit 5 stars, but our visit was very slow to start. It took 45 minutes since the time we sat to get the bottle of wine that we ordered. We are not sure if the server was overwhelmed with tables, but I found that unacceptable. We also had to ask... More

This restaurant was the most pleasant surprise during our visit in Newport, last summer. From the moment you enter the establishment, you are in a different world. The greetings made us feel like home, the food is unbelievable, the service was top notch, but the biggest surprise we had was the check. Dinner for two and a bottle of wine... More
