We dined at Bouchard for a family birthday celebration. We were a party of 9 ranging in age from 20's-80's. The menu offerings appeased everyone's palate. The food, atmosphere, presentation and the service couldn't be better. Wonderful!

The food here was the best we had on our trip. The kitchen service was slow. Our waiter stemmed attentive. We were also seated in the back where we could hear a woman on her cell phone 2 tables away.

One person in your party needs to go into the restaurant and obtain the parking voucher. They will then direct you to the free parking lot.
