Lovely dinner for two, all courses very well presented and tasty. Service attentive, but not annoying and a very good range of wines. Reasonable prices for the quality of food on offer

We had 3 courses from the early bird menu. The food was outstanding, not 'cheap', but great value for money, every course was spot on and a very good selection of wines to go with the lovely food. Will be back

Again an excellent meal. Friday lunch and place was full. Make sure you book and you will not be disappointed. Steak frites were excellent but so was the pork chop. Looking forward to next visit

I took colleagues here for supper. What a feed one said! It was perfect from start to finish, we all had 3 courses on the early bird menue. It's worth every penny. Wine is reasonable and a good selection. Greg and he team work hard to make everything perfect......well done. Superb evening meal.

I was taken to Bouchon as part of my birthday treat which was arranged by friends. It's a lovely little restaurant and the food, on the whole, was very good apart from the confit of duck which was grey and chewy. Three of us had it and we told the waitress but we got no feedback from the kitchen. A... More

Be prepared to be treated with contempt and check your bill. Eight of us went to Bouchon to celebrate a friend's 70th birthday. A couple who could not join us arranged for wine to be put on the table. When we were presented with the bill, we had been charged again for the pre-paid wine. We raised it with the... More
