How romantic this establishment is, whether you are dining outside on their very cleverly created tri-level patio (located in the ally way directly next door) or if you are seated at the bar. If you are seated in the ally way, note that it's covered and heated, so you'll be just a comfortable there. The tables are close together, so... More

You MUST try the frites! I had the almond crusted trout which was gluten-free and quite yummy! It's nice when fish comes to the table HOT. And it did.

Be sure to order the escargot and lobster ravioli. This restaurant is great and has a fantastic atmosphere. Michelle is always making sure his customers are happy. Don't miss this one!

Came for a bachelorette dinner- 10 girls. Each one of us loved our meals- steak frites, mussels, lobster ravioli, French onion soup. Drinks were amazing- their blush champagne was delicious! Great, quick service despite the large group- we had called a few days ahead to give them a warning since they do not take reservations, which I am sure they... More

Could have cooked a better steak myself, the lobster ravioli basic, and their "Famous Fries" were not as good as McDonald's

This was our first visit, and we were impressed. We were looking for some not-so-hip-and-trendy atmosphere, and Bouchon delivered. Asheville is a fantastic artistic town, but sometimes the too-cool hipster vibe can be tiresome. This is perfect. It gets crowded, but not noisy. It's does deliver the feel of France, and while the attire is dress casual, the food is... More

I lived in French-speaking Belgium for 13 years, and ate at a LOT of French restaurants. I was pleasantly surprised by my dinner at Bouchon. Atmosphere & décor is reminiscent of a typical small restaurant anywhere in France. Food was very tasty and well-priced. Service was nothing like France/Belgium, and that's a good thing. A restaurant there would have maybe... More

What a wonderful meal that left us wishing we had a spot JUST like this in Atlanta. Comfort food 101. Drinks were great but the food was perfect. Lots of Mmmmm sounds coming from our table.

I have eaten here several times. Every time has been outstanding. Escargot, fries, steak frites, mussels, roasted chicken, sweet breads, OMG. And the real kicker is the African Queen dessert, WOW, rum marinated banana wrapped in puff pastry, baked then caramel sauce and coconut ice cream! It is a go to place anytime I'm in Asheville. Very busy but we... More
