Fodor's Review

The team that created The French Laundry is also behind this place, where everything—the lively and crowded zinc-topped bar, the elbow-to-elbow seating, the traditional French onion soup—could have come straight from a Parisian bistro. Roast chicken with sautéed chicken livers and button mushrooms, and steamed mussels served with crispy, addictive frites (french fries) are among the dishes served. The adjacent Bouchon Bakery sells marvelous macarons (meringue cookies) in many flavors, along with brownies, pastries, and other baked goods.

Not worth it

Was very excited to eat here based on reputation. The food was ok and the atmosphere was nice but I was not overly impressed. The chilled potato leek soup was overpowered by cream and the taste of the vegetables was far too subte. Service started out well but we waited over 20 minutes between our second course and entre with no appology or explanation from the waitstaff, management or kitchen. Despite its pedigree I would skip this one and would

look harder for an up and comming restaurant that is woking hard to earn their reputation.

Reminds me of Paris

Delicious food served in a wonderfully noisy and close atmosphere and strike up a conversation with the people next to you. If you are looking for peace and quiet go to Domaine Chandon. If you are looking for delicious food served in a friendly atmosphere, you have arrived.

Uncomfortable and Overpriced

The evening was hot yet the doors were open and the air conditioning on low. The tables are jammed together and the noise level was at a din. I had to lean out of the way of passing wait staff, and we could have shared the food on the next table over. The food was good but I was so uncomfortable that I didn't enjoy it. Reduce the number of tables by about 33%, turn on the ac when the temperature outside is 86 degrees and reduce the service pace

down from an Applebee's at lunch time (I know it's a bistro) and I might pay the Keller premium price.
