We had made reservations for a birthday celebration. The wine was excellent, the service is always ready to get you anything you desire. When the owner found out we were celebrating a birthday we received champagne on the house. The presentation of the food is so beautiful you don't really want to eat it but the aroma from the food...

Bouchard's is one of my favorite restaurants. The presentation is as wonderful as the food. The server very confidently assisted with my menu selections and surprised me with the main course! Everything was wonderful, and the venue will continue to serve as my favorite celebratory spot!

Very romantic and cozy atmosphere. The food, wine and dessert were some of the best we've ever had. I had the dover sole and my husband had the restuffed lobster, both divine. Our server was awesome, very knowledgeable and formal without being STUFFY! Certainly an experience to remember, would highly recommend!

The ambiance is enchanting. The service is effective and efficient for those who are looking to made dinner an event. There are always specials: soups, entrees, and, for desert, everyone chooses a made-to-order grand marnier souffle. Bouchards is a must, next time in Newport.

The four of us ordered different items from the wonderful menu and we were all happy. The salmon was divine, all the salads were perfectly seasoned. The presentation of all of the food was beautiful.
