If you’re looking for a fancy place worth the wait, this is the place. Ambience, food, and service are all a solid 10. The duck was perfect, and my husbands beef burgundy was delectable. Will return!

Food was delicious. Wine list could be better. Champagne needs to be revised. Great Service. Reservations a MUST.

Bouchon is a must-do for my wife and I every time we return to Asheville. You won't find better French cuisine this side of the pond outside of a handful of chi-chi restaurants in NYC and Washington DC, and maybe not even then. Walking into...More

This was a fourth or fifth visit to Bouchon, and we have never had a bad or even average meal. The one drawback to the establishment is that you are going to have to wait. The venue is small and leads to waiting. There is...More

We loved our dinner at Bouchon. Be prepared to wait for your seat. They do not take reservations. We were fortunate to quickly get a seat at the bar event though we arrived early (5:30) in the night. The couple that arrived behind us was...More

Visited Bouchon on a recommendation from a staff member from the Grove Park Inn. No reservation so we arrived early on Wednesday, at 4:30 PM. They open at 5:00 PM. Wednesday just happens to be "All you can eat mussels" night, so a line had...More

Since they don't take reservations we were able to wait around one night and get a good seat at the bar. The hostess told us the estimated wait was two and a half hours! The food was wonderful and the wine was tasty. I would...More

Walked in at 5:00 PM (they do not take reservations) and got seated immediately. Those getting there a 5:20 had a wait. That said, the wait will be worth it ... we had a half order of "Paris" mussels - perfectly seasoned and delicious, the...More

Asheville has many excellent restaurants and this is one of the best. Monday nights features unlimited mussels — and an unsurprisingly busy night. Get there by 5 if you don’t want to wait. The atmosphere is cozy. The service is amazing. (Bouchon is known for...More

I always try to get to this restaurant when I visit Asheville. Great staff. Friendly service. Fantastic mussels. They run all you can eat mussels during the week. No reservations are taken so order a glass of wine and wait on a table. It’s well...More

No, they do not. Bouchon Asheville is walk-in only, first come, first serve.

I don't think they have a bakery. Bouchon is a bistro and doesn't open until 5:00 pm. Perhaps you are confusing it with its sister restaurant next door, Creperie Bouchon, which is more of a Parisian cafe, but still not a... More
