I ordinarily don't choose a French restaurant when I'm in Santa Fe because, well, it's Santa Fe! There are so many great restaurants with New Mexican food and flavors that I can't get at home, and I want to experience that kind of cooking when...More

Although prices were high for Santa Fe, they were not for a good restaurant in a large city, e.g. New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, etc. More important than the level of the prices was the quality of the food, which was worth every bit....More

The service, atmosphere and meals were all wonderful. Its expensive, but if you are up for it, well worthwhile. Loved the outdoor space.

Elegant dining with a small menu and specials you need to try. We had the corn soup, which had a wonderful light flavor and texture. All the entrees are unique. I had the prawn with broccoli and my wife had raviolis with a delicate sauce....More

I keep hoping, but Bouche is not a Bistro in the classical French sense! Attitude is more important than attention to detail and consistent performance in the kitchen, but for those who have not experienced the charm, camaraderie and consistency of a good French Bistro...More
