We dined here to celebrate my 18th. I must say, the experience was fantastic. The staff were amicable from the moment we walked in and went above and beyond to ensure we were satisfied. The food was stellar; I had the Carré d’Agneau and it...was quite possibly the best meal I've ever eaten. When we ordered dessert, it came on a chalkboard with a birthday message on it, a great touch. I highly recommend you to dine here for any occasion, or even if there is no occasion, it is simply a beautiful experience.More

This was such a special visit. The food was supetb. We started with the snails. A little diversion from actual shell outers, these were edible. Toally took advantage of soaking up the garlic butter juices. Moving on, with fairly small appetites, we chose the French...Onion Soup. Sooo good! Just yummy, comforting, dripping with grilled cheese perfection and warming, well seasoned broth. Ticks all boxes. Could not leave without sharing the steak tartare. Always a favourite, I seek it out wherever possible. Delicious! Not too large, well seasoned and complimented all that had gone before. A simple chocolate desert finished a beautiful meal. The ambience is welcoming, french style interior and friendly, service just right, not too fast nor were we kept waiting. I cannot recommend more highly. 10/10 thank you xMore

What an amazing place! The ambience is classic French bistro. The owner and his wife are out in front greeting guests and helping with the bar and service. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful, and the food was of the charts good. Julie had...French onion soup and oysters; I had the foie gras and the cassoulet. We shared a creme brulee. The wine list is thorough. It was a very enjoyable and delicious dinner; expensive but worth it. We highly recommend this place.More

This dinner was $250 for two people and worth every penny. We had oysters, two specials, a cocktail (which was the only 'meh' item) and two glasses of Bordeaux (can't remember which ones, but incredible). Amazing flavours, great service. Definitely the most unique eating experience...in Kelowna and one of the few places that I would say you get value for what you pay for. Their creme burly is to die for!!More

Had an amazing time dining here at Bouchons. The food is unreal, the escargot and the rack of lamb is amazing. Definitely worth checking out. The service was great too, Joffrey was amazing. Will definitely be back again!

Only by occosion we got to Bouchon! We booked a table in the neighborhood which did not get free at the agreed time. Therefore we looked aside and saw some tables getting free: a good reason to ask for one! We started with the recommendation...of a phantastic patron: a nice sparking wine to start with. Then Foie gras with a nice Sancerre: Phantasitically Followed by an excellent Bouillabaisse: absolutely awesome! The finals were profiteroles! Superb! A good reason to come back!More

This restaurant is supposed to be one of the best in Kelowna. It is expensive with a limited menu. I had the rack of lamb with ratatouille. The lamb was very good, but there was very little ratatouille, so not enough to eat. My husband...had the duck. It looked like duck stew in pork'n'beans! Fine restaurants usually don't serve beans as your side. Server was pleasant, but we both left hungry. The food was very disappointing. I am afraid I can not recommend this restaurant.More
