Bouchard's is simply excellent. Our Captain Max brought our experience to the "max". The food continues to amaze us. We never miss an opportunity to go to Bouchard's while in Newport. Yellowfin tuna tartare, warm tomato tarte, restuffed lobster and a souffle. What else can...More

We've visited the Restaurant Bouchard every July 4th weekend for the last 4 years (and usually once or twice more during the year), since it's our anniversary weekend. The food is always excellent, no doubt about it. But sadly this past weekend was our last...More
