Gotta do brunch here - the chicken and waffles are awesome. I think I order them every time we eat here. The pastries are top notch as well. Don't miss out on the beignets with Nutella.

This French Bistro has tons of hype and is world renowned. The food was tasty but the portions were quite small and expensive. We had the same problem with the menus as the other reviewer, couldn't read it with the lighting and faint print. But the service was excellent and so was the company.

Tables were covered with thick white paper. Bread was served directly onto the paper cover. Hope it was replaced after previous customers. You can get the same quality of paper cover at the Macaroni Grill. At least there they write on it so you know you got a new cover. No bread plates, you had to keep putting your bread onto the table cover. The bread was a fancy woven design so had lots of crust and not much bread inside. If you want salt or pepper you have to ask for it, no shakers on the table. The waiter comes over and grinds the salt like they do pepper. Guess it is unacceptable to salt and pepper your own food. Fish served with the head on. French style? My wife thought the menu was rather limited and really did not find anything she liked. My daughter did not like it at all as it did not come across as a "fancy" restaurant. She had steak and just barely was I able to stop her from asking for A-1 Sauce. She thought the steak was dry. The sound was pretty bad as there is little if any thought to sound control. Voices echo off the walls and if you want you can eavesdrop on conversations across the room.

Unless you are really into "authentic" French food, I would not recommend this place.

We recently went to dinner at Bouchon ( April 09 ) on our Vagas trip. Loving food and fine dining, I was really looking forward to this one. The hostess was friendly and we were seated quickly. Everyone who served us was professional- with the exception of our waiter, who seemed to have last worked at a fast food joint. I ordered the field greens salad with warm goat cheese, my husband ordered the mussels. Our waiter managed to topple my salad in front of me, spilling leaves and goat cheese all over the table. He apologized in a way that made me think he was doing me a favor by taking back the salad, and promptly left our table littered with leaves and dressing ( nobody offered to clean up the mess ). I had to laugh to keep myself from saying something nasty. I ordered the salmon and my husband the lamb, portions were ok and the food was great, the salmon was flavorful and moist while the lamb was tender and cooked a perfect medium. Thumbs up to the chefs! But alas, our waiter neglected us, and it took standing up out of the chair for him to notice anything. The bad service climaxed at the end out our meal, when our waiter gave us the wrong receipt to fill out with how much we wanted to tip and sign off on the card. It took a better part of 20 minutes for him to pick up the check and then notice his mistake, forcing us to fill out a second silly form while already impatient to finally leave.

Leaving this poor service in the past, Bouchon has a great little bakery outpost on the casino floor in the Venetian. Croissants are flavorful and can be toasted, eclairs and desserts are to die for! The service at the bakery far exceeds that which is had in the restaurant.

My friend and I went Jan. 09 during our Vegas trip. Both of us being foodies, Bouchon was on the top of our list of restaurants to go based on their reputation (thanks, Anthony Bourdain!). We were not disappointed. We went during brunch time. Both the hostess and our waiter were courteous and friendly. We ordered the Czar Nicholas Sturgeon to split, which was one of the specials. The waiter brought us homemade jam and butter. Our fish was well cooked and the flavors balanced perfectly with each other. My friend, who is not as cultured as I am when it comes to food said it was the best meal he's every had. I would have to agree that is one of the best meals I have ate at a restaurant. The whole experience was perfect.
Also at the Venetian is Bouchon Bakery. We went there several times to have something quick to grab and go. The pastries were excellent. Too bad the city we live does not have Thomas Keller's restaurant. We would come back again and again.

Lately people have commented on the poor service here. I've been here twice -- in January and November 2008. Both times, the service left a lot to be desired. However, in November it was much worse. Our server got a table of 10 she had to take care of, and once that happened, she was out of sight for us. Another server had to take over the table next to us, since she was unable to get to them to take their order. Ultimately at the end, they forgot to give us the pastry chef chocolate/mini dessert dish because they were so disorganized.

The chicken was the best chicken dish I've ever had -- it seemed to melt in my mouth. I was dying to have it again, but this time, opted to order one of the day's specials -- scallops with corn succotash. The scallops were perfectly done, and the corn succotash was yummy. We also had two of the special desserts, which were delicious. However, the service really was disappointing -- so consider this when thinking about going to Bouchon.

WAITRESS FORGES SIGNATURES!

My friends and I ate there a few months ago. We split the bill and each person paid $36. We gave the waitress $72 in cash and charged the rest on our credit cards.

3 weeks later, I receive my credit card statement and the waitress charged me for the entire amount. She took the cash and put the total on my credit card! Then, when I called the restaurant, I found out that the waitress had been "let go" 1 week after we ate there.

I went back to the restaurant and they would not own up to it even though the waitress had been let go. They said I had to go through the credit card company and they were not responsible.

First off, we received the worst service that day. We had 6 people so the waitress knew that the automatic service charge would be applied. She never brought us the bread basket, and she forget to bring us the drinks we ordered. We waited for 20 minutes after we got our food before receiving the drinks. The entire time, she ignored us and was very condescending. That's probably why she got let go.

The restaurant would not take responsibility for this though. They were the ones that hired that terrible waitress. Plus, they fired her.

I am still disputing the charge but I wanted to make sure everyone here knew about my terrible experience.

We really enjoyed our experience here. Of course we had to check out this restaurant since it is owned by Thomas Keller, one of the most decorated chefs around. We were not disappointed as the food and service was excellent. Looking forward to going back.

This place is fine - it's a decent approximation of a French bistro, two of my friends at the table were served two of the absolute worst steaks I've ever tasted. They had the consistency of a microwaved Hungry Man dinner. Seriously. And this isn't me just bitching or being annoying. My chicken entree was actually really good. But this steak was perhaps the worst thing I've ever been served in a restaurant of any level. I mean if there's one thing a French bistro anywhere in the world should be able to do well, it's Steak Frites. Obviously, onion soup is the other and based on the reviews here we didn't even touch that one. Add this to the list of basics they can't seem to grasp. Uch. Disgusting.

I was impressed the minute I walked into the restaurant as it gives a marvelous french bistro vibe.
Based on the ambience, I expected an expensive menu, yet the dishes are priced very reasonably and the dishes were excellent too.

The restaurant's oysters are very fresh, although quite small in size, it's still worth the try.
The fries were great, and some of the main dishes like the Roasted Chicken and the mussels are also excellent.

We love the French Laundry and decided to try Bouchon. The service was very good and generally friendly, the menu was quite difficult to read. We and the couple at the next table kept on asking each other what was on the menu - at least we had fun with it.
The onion soup was tasteless - like it was made using bouillion cubes and quite salty. The oxtail was very pretty but wayyyy too salty - it wasn't edible. The onion soup was replaced with carrot soup which was good.
Dessert: the french donuts - truly wonderful and outstanding. If we go again we would order dessert only and coffee.

I read many reviews on Bouchon as there are so many French options in Vegas. I was very happy that I chose to dine here. We were seated right away and the server was very friendly. Started out with two dozen mussels which were a great value. 2nd course was the app special, escargot, it was very nice. I went with a special again for my main course and was very pleased. Just a month ago I ate at the Effiel Tower rest. in the Paris hotel....I would say this was 90% as good as that meal for 50% of the price. Very good value compared to other offerings in Vegas. With so many choices in Vegas it's hard to return to any place but I will reccomend Buchon and even dine here again on my next trip.

I took my girlfriend to Bouchon for dinner as part of a weekend Vegas trip for her birthday. When making the reservation, I asked for a quiet romantic table and mentioned the birthday occasion; the staff did not dissapoint. They sat us at a large and comfortable booth which was also in a relatively quiet part of the restaurant. We ordered the "petit plat" of seafood along with soup and salad and everything was fresh and rich in flavor. Without making any request, they then brought out a spread of deserts for us to celebrate the special occasion. I will recomend Bouchon to anyone looking for good food, good service and appropriately priced fare.

No one could say I did not give it a fair shake. Based on the reputation of this restaurant I made a second 'forgiveness' visit with the same underwhelming results.

Firstly the positive: the service was great both times. The wine list is nice but rather over-priced. Another reason I felt so compelled to make a second visit was the boudin noir, which was delicious and at least as good as any I've had in France.

This being said, however, the rest of the food has been the greatest disappointment of both of my visits (the second being much worse). French bistro food is my favorite and I have long admired the Bouchon cookbook. They seem to capture many of the trappings and appearance of French cuisine while missing the flavor and spirit of it. The onion soup tasted like stock and was underseasoned and poorly gratineed. Then the oxtail stew was so over-salted it was barely edible. The charcuterie plate was all saucisson sec and uninteresting. My girlfriend had the tarte au citron for dessert, which we also didn't care for. The crust was hard and way too thick and the filling was over-cooked and dry. The greatest offender however was the cheese. I ordered a tomme crayeuse on my second visit, which is one of my favorites. What arrived seemed closer to monterey jack. The rind was cut off and the cheese was firm, white and flavorless.

Overall my biggest gripe with the place is that it takes a cuisine that is in spirit simple, humble and beautiful and transplants it into a pretentious and hyped-up setting while consistently missing the mark. Quite disappointing.

I saw Bouchon on the Travel Channel and wanted to check it out for myself. The food was absolutely delicious. We had the mussels and olives to start along with the freshly baked bread. I had the salmon which was in a fantastic red wine sauce and my sister had the sausage which she said was the best she ever tasted. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

My wife and I are French food lovers and decided to try to this place out. The decor was beautiful so it was pleasant initially. After sitting down, the waitress asked us if we wanted flat water or sparkling water. Since both of us don't like Evian water, we just wanted tap water so I said flat. We were suprised when she pull out a bottle of Evian water but decided to let that go.
My wife ordered the trout and I got the roast chicken with French fries, both signature dishes at Bouchon. My chicken was decent. About the same as what I get at Boston Market. Fries was eatable. About the sames as Denny's. But being a nice guy, I told the waitress the food was nice. My wife's entree was another story. The dish looked very good but one bite into the meat we knew that this was spoiled fish. The waitress came and insisted the fish is fresh but willing to get us something else. We got the steak with fries and asked to cook it medium. It came after 20 minutes and was cook rare. We were upset so decided to to pay our bill and leave. For the first time in my life, I decided not to pay tip. Since this experience was just horrible.
After coming home and check our credit card, I saw that the restaurant put tips on my bill event though I didn't authorize it. I was in a state of shock and couldn't believe they did that. Thomas Keller if you're reading this, please fix up your restaurant or this will ruin your reputation.

my boyfriend and i had breakfast at bouchon before heading back home and even though i really enjoyed it, he wasn't as impressed. first, the service is impeccable. our coffee was poured so discreetly that i didn't even see the waiter. little bread rolls were brought to our table straight out of the oven on a cloth napkin, with butter and jam of course. we also ordered the baguette, which came out piping hot wrapped in a paper sleeve, with nutella spread - yum! i ordered the croque madame - grilled ham and cheese on brioche with a fried egg on top, all covered in a mornay sauce, and pomme frittes on the side - and my boyfriend had the signature french toast. the mornay sauce, whatever it is, was light and went really well with both the ham and the frittes. the french toast was more dense than expected and not at all hot, more lukewarm than anything else... it was just okay. next time, he'll order the corned beef hash and eggs, which is always a great way to measure a restaurant's worth, breakfast wise. all in all, though, i'd say this was the perfect way to end our vegas trip =)

We visited on my wife's birthday and experienced a little trouble locating and getting to the Venezia Tower where this restaurant occupies the top floor. This is world-renowned chef Thomas Keller?s French bistro that swept the 2005 Las Vegas Life Epicurean awards by winning in four categories ? Best French, Best New Restaurant on the Strip, Best Restaurant on the Strip and Best Restaurant. The restaurant has a warm and elegant atmosphere including rich wood paneling, a handcrafted pewter bar, boldly patterned mosaic floor tiles and antique light fixtures. A table on the outdoor patio overlooking the gardens and fountains would have been perfect had the weather cooperated.

We started off with fresh squeezed orange juice and were served a complimentary roll with cherry preserves. We each ordered a specialty of the house, French toast - bread pudding style with warm layers of brioche, custard and fresh fruit (apples) with maple syrup. Since my wife completed her undergraduate studies in French toast and received an MBP, Masters of Bread Pudding , I am not about to argue with her when she says this was the best French toast ever.

We visited on my wife's birthday and experienced a little trouble locating and getting to the Venezia Tower where this restaurant occupies the top floor. This is world-renowned chef Thomas Keller?s French bistro that swept the 2005 Las Vegas Life Epicurean awards by winning in four categories ? Best French, Best New Restaurant on the Strip, Best Restaurant on the Strip and Best Restaurant. The restaurant has a warm and elegant atmosphere including rich wood paneling, a handcrafted pewter bar, boldly patterned mosaic floor tiles and antique light fixtures. A table on the outdoor patio overlooking the gardens and fountains would have been perfect had the weather cooperated.

I have been to a lot of the acclaimed restaurants in Vegas but this is one of the best, in my opinion. The ambience is not as over the top as some of its other famous counterparts but I really appreciated the understated elegance and delicious food. Prices are quite good considering the quality of the dishes. Definitely worth a visit!

Pros: Great food, pretty reasonable prices

Cons: If you have a large group you'll probably have to wait for a table

I think that given the price and the bistro style of food that lunch might be the target time for Bouchon. I really loved the atmosphere of the place, kind of open, light -- quite a departure from a lot of places in Vegas. (It's noisy there though.) Three of us ate there for lunch. One had the poulet roti, which was as good as I've heard about. The frites were really good, maybe not the best that I've had, but really good. I had the trout, which was subtle and nice. The third party member had the omelette of the day which was short rib and mushroom -- not the best omelette I've tasted (yes, I nibbled at everyone's plate) but very good. The bread on the table was excellent. I also had the soup of the day, which was a butternut squash with brown butter and creme fraiche. Yummy. Dishes tended to be around $16-25 at lunch time, so I would say it was a pretty good deal too (by Vegas standards).

Bouchon is a great way to experience French cuisine in Vegas for reasonable prices. We had the salmon tartar, skirt steak, trout almondine (beware, the head is still on the fish), and of course their pommes frites. Everything was excellent. Make sure you have reservations on the weekends. The service was great. The only drawback was that it is a little noisy, but it is not enough to be disruptive. If you want it to be a romantic experience, request a table away from the bar area.

I've been to Bouchon for both brunch and dinner, and had wonderful experiences both times. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice, you can almost forget that you're in the middle of the Vegas strip when you're there. The wait service is kind and attentive. The food is fantastic, and not terribly overpriced. For brunch, I would strongly recommend their sourdough waffles with strawberries. I also liked that they make their mimosas with orangina - tasty! I would definitely come back here the next time I am in Vegas.

I had made a reservation 3 weeks in advance at Bouchon Las Vegas, expecting an excellent meal based upon the reputation of Thomas Keller and the reviews on this website. However, when the hostess assigned my family and I to our table, we were placed at the worst table in the restaurant; even the other hostess who took us to our table looked shocked when hearing the name of our table, especially knowing that we had made a reservation and had requested a table near the window! The restaurant was only half-full with several tables available near the window, and the table I was taken to was next to the waiters' service station and the closest table to the kitchen entrance. I immediately asked the hostess to move to one of the open tables next to the window. She moved us, and we were placed at a table closer to the window, but still not next to the window. I later complained to the manager about being placed at the worst table despite my reservation; however, he essentially refused to admit the mistake of the hostess. My food (the mussels and lamb) was prepared well although simply, although my wife's steak was overcooked for her request of medium, and her mountain of frites tasted cheap (I agree with gotcpa). For the quality, the food was overpriced by $10. The waiting and bell service itself was impeccable, and I never felt as if I was being ignored, despite the fact that my head waiter had been attending to many tables (this might be the product of the competence of our individual waiter; I have heard that many others felt ignored for long periods of time). The ambiance was also satisfactory; there was a good view of the outside garden and pool and there were also high ceilings, although the inside decor was merely an upgraded version of what one might find at Bon Vie, or a much cheaper French bistro at a mall. Ultimately, my experience, otherwise quite pleasant, was ruined by a poor management team and overpricing.

My sister brought me here for a sister's breakfast... I was skeptical; I live in Vegas, and it seems like every restaurant we have gone to on the strip, whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner, is overpriced for what you get. So, we went around 10 in the morning. When we walked in, we were greeted by the host. My sister has a little bit of pull when it comes to how we're treated at many of the hotels here in Vegas, so she asked the host if it would be possible to see the kictchen and talk to the chefs (she is a big fan of Thomas Keller, and although he was not there at the time, wanted to see who he has running his restaurants). So, they gave us a tour of the massive kitchen and all of the little pastry rooms. I just wanted to say that this is the CLEANEST kitchen I have ever seen (and I've seen my fair share). When we were seated, they had Bloody Mary's out on the table, with a bottle of Evian. Not two minutes went by when we were served with fruit parfaits, promptly after, they brought out a Sourdough bread braid with vanilla bean butter and cherry topping. While we were enjoying all of that, they placed a full tray of pastries on our table (chocolate croissant, bear claw, danish, etc.). We hardly had time to look at the pastries when THREE entrees were placed on our table (we only ordered two). Turns out, one of the chefs had sent out the third on the house. So, we ate poached eggs and toast, apple french toast, and sourdough waffles with strawberries... While we were eating that, one of the bartenders sent out Expresso Martinis. Absolutely everything exceeded my highest expectations for any restaurant I have ever been to. As soon as I drank a little water, there they were filling up my water glass. The ambiance was BEAUTIFUL, it was nice and full of light inside the restaurant. When we left, we gave the waitress a 50% tip, because she was such a great server. From now on, anytime someone visits, this will be my restaurant of choice.

I have all of Thomas Keller's cookbooks and love them all. Our first time at one of his restaurants and heck, I could've made the same dishes...and better! I thought the price was reasonable, it was the service that really ruin the evening. We started out with one waiter who did not even tell us about the specials of the evening. We only found out about it when he was telling the two tables next to us! After he took our drink orders, a second waiter came and asked us for our drink orders (this only happens in small, moms and pops places). After our appetizers were delivered by the first waiter, he never came back to check and see how everything was. Our Evian water bottle was empty and he never asked us if we wanted more water. Then comes our entree, and our appetizer plates and utensils were never pre-bussed and it's been sitting there for at least 20 minutes! The waiter rushes over to clear up the table and brought clean utensils for me but not for my husband...and runs off again before we realized what happened! We sat there for a full 5 minutes trying to catch someone's attention to get some utensils before our food gets cold when we finally got the attention of a busboy! The busboy then went to get our waiter who brought the utensils without a word of apology! We could not believe it! Then after all that, my pork short ribs entree was so overcooked on the outside that I couldn't even cut it through with my knife. The whole outside layer tasted like pork jerky! By that time I was so upset that I couldn't even eat anymore and just sent the entree back. The manager came over and apologized and offered us free desserts. I asked him if he saw the short ribs and how burnt it was, he said he didn't even look at it! He didn't act surprise at all...it's almost like that food gets returned all the time! His careless attitude told me all I needed to know about the management over there. We turned down the free desserts and asked for the check. We will never be back.

The service is unsurpassed, the food is otherworldly, and well french wine needs to adjective. I have dined several times at Bouchon for breakfast and dinner and now go to Vegas with the sole purpose of dining here. It's french but not so french that everything is unfamiliar. Hands down the best croissants in Vegas- no small feat. The fish is as fresh as you will find anywhere and the preparation is flawless.

We were looking forward to our night at Bouchon after reading all of the print and internet reviews. The ambience was beautiful. Sadly, the food was just OK. We ordered the steak & pomme frites and the trout. The steak was overcooked, and the fries tasted like McDonalds. The trout was tasteless... disappointed that the high point was the french bread. With so many great restaurants in Vegas, we wont be returning to Bouchon.

I was delighted by the waiting lounge, with newspapers on racks as you would find at a public libary, and the non sequitur wall paintings near the ceiling of the dining room (a hair brush? Cute). A paper menu folded around each napkin was a nice touch. Belgian beer came in the correct glass, a short, fat one similar to that which brandy is served in. My husband and I each ordered the gnocchi, which were different than the Italian variety as they were made of pastry, cheese, and djon mustard. They were delicious, but very heavy - we would have been wise to split an order. The desserts were the highlights - profiteroles and the special, mini "wine corks" of chocolate cake and molton chocolate. Of the complimentary cookies, my favorite was a mini, homemade peanut butter sandwich, like a warm, fresh Do-Si-Do (you know, the Girl Scout treat).

We had a special dinner Sept 2005. I know a bistro is supposed to be casual, but with these prices it just has to be special. We had a wonderful time... shellfish platter was perfect, house made pate was fabulous.. braised pork, perfect salad, professional, attentive service, gorgeous space. My only regret was that I can't afford to eat there weekly. Make sure to check the specials.

This French restaurant/bistro in the Venetian is charming and is one of the more renowned places in town. The food is good, maybe not as great as the hype or the prices would lead you to expect. The roasted pork I had was delicious, but my date wasn't as happy with his meal. One annoying, funny thing - the way the menus are designed - kind of a parchment paper with brown script - makes them very hard to read in the candlelit atmosphere. I wasn't sure what to order, so I had to finally ask the server for suggestions!

My husband and I had dinner here last night (4/25/05) and were quite disappointed. Considering the reputation of Thomas Keller and the hype surrounding this place I don't think it's merited. Our meals were good - tried the lamb and chicken, and if we had them in one of the countless brasseries we've been to in France and paid perhaps $10/plate we would have been quite happy. They were simple, relatively one-dimensional and prepared properly (not over or underdone) but there was absolutely no creativity in the recipes. Something I might have prepared on a Wednesday night. The service was mixed, attentive at first but then we felt like we were forgotten. Way too long to have plates cleared, dessert offerred and the check presented. Considering our check was over $200 we have no desire to return. May I recommend Olives (Todd English) or Mesa Grill (Bobby Flay.)

I don't know where people are getting the idea that anything less then than Denny's-speedy is slow service. Great food takes time, and I don't mind waiting a couple of minutes between courses (which we didn't). We received excellent, prompt service and the food was top notch. Think: French Laundry but much simpler and more accessible. Warm pistachios brought out at the beginning of service are a welcome surprise. Our server (Brooke?) was very knowledgeable and friendly, and offered us a kitchen tour. The cleanest kitchen in existence. We felt the prices were reasonable for a restaurant of its caliber, host staff was welcoming, and we would eat there frequently if we lived in Las Vegas. Definitely recommended!

I don't know how the editors decided this place was not romantic yet good for kids--I think it's the exact opposite! Everything was fabulous when we went (Feb 2005)--food, wine selection, ambiance *and* service. I would recommend this place to anyone for a special dinner. And yes the service is a bit slow, but that's because it's *supposed to be*. Do NOT go here if you don't care about your dining experience or if you're in a rush. But I hardly think that is any kind of detraction from this kind of a restaurant!

Last month we had a great dinner at Bouchon. We dined here again this past weekend and it was bad. Everyone's first course was okay but trouble started when the main courses arrived...it was unedible! Salt, salt everywhere especially on the veggies! It was like an eternity between courses...we dined for over 3 1/2 hours. We had the same server as last month (and he did remember me)...this time his service was indifferent and I was surprised when he offered to rectify the problem with the saltiness of our food by offering me a free dessert...that was insulting. I was looking for that same wonderful meal and dining experience I had only a weeks prior not a freebie! I really thought I found the perfect restaurant in Vegas...great food, no attitude, great service w//out the hype and fussiness so common with other restaurants on the Strip. I was wrong.

While the food was excellent (Foie Gras was the best Ive had) the service was just horrible. Our waiter was to concerned with another table so he was terribly forgetful! Asked for bread for the Foie 3 times before asking a busser to get the bread. Dinner and food with drinks/wine for 4 was over 300 bucks. You would think the service would match this level of quality.

we went there for breakfast. My husband had an egg dish with bacon and croissant. I had their strawberry croissant that was special of the day. I think they serve one of the best pastries ever. I felt their coffee was kind of strong and expensive at $3 a cup. The service was very, very slow. It took foever to get our check and even longer to get some stuff to go. The place is beautiful, the food is great, but they should really work on their service.

Hmm, when I reviewed Bouchon, it only had a 7.0 rating. I think it should be much higher. Las Vegas is becoming the new "eating" mecca and I was pleased on my visit here. I loved the oysters and their steak frites were also enjoyable. The frites, I thought, must've been one of the best I ever tasted. The service was excellent as many of the staff are from the San Francisco area, so it was fun to chat it up, as I'm also from there. Also got a tour of the kitchen and took home as much freshly baked bread and pastries as we could carry.
