“An unfortunate experience”
Reviewed 28 September 2004

The food was fine. Unfortunately, the service or rather lack of it was enough to ruin the experience. The problem was that the restaurant was seriously understaffed and the waiter and his assistant were unable to manage the work load. Two people trying to manage meals for 24 people in an upscale restaurant just doesn't work. This is unacceptable in a restaurant in this price range. Even worse, complaints to the owner's wife, who was running the front of the house, were met with complete indifference. It's too bad.

“A very special evening”
Reviewed 6 September 2004

If you are looking for an elegant, yet comfortable special place to dine -- Restaurant Bouchard is for you.

We enjoyed a fabulous special birthday dinner there. Starting with two glasses of complimentary birthday champagne, we enjoyed each course and finished the evening with the souffle and chocolate mouse....both heavenly. The dinner rolls are made in the restaurant and are served fresh out of the oven....some of the best we have ever had. The appetizers, salads and entrees are perfect in every way!

Service was perfect! We enjoyed a special evening and will have wonderful memories for years to come. Dinner for two, one appetizer, one salad, and two desserts came to a bit over $100 with tax and gratuity (no drinks)....not bad for an evening of truly fine dining.
