Three of us had our annual girls dinner here. The service is typical French Canadian. The ambience is traditional French. My cassoulet dish was very good. One of our group had the special of the day apply and dinner. She was impressed with both dishes. The third meal of bouillabaisse was a disappointment due to it being rather bland. All... More

If you live or are visiting Kelowna you need to go to this place. The food classic French with a west coast twist. And who doesn't like French food? The service wine lists and food offerings are big hit with me. Classic French cuisine in a comfortable upscale setting. I have had nothing but knowledgeable friendly bartenders (very important) as...

My husband and I enjoyed my birthday dinner at Bouchons. It was every bit as wonderful as I had been told. I had the Chef's table, a delicious 3 course meal with seared duck breast as my entree. This is accompanied by fresh veggies and truly amazing Pomme Frites. The appetizer was delicious and the desert decadent. My dessert even... More

Always such a beautiful dining experience. Staff is professional, food is traditional French cuisine, and your treated well. Make sure you book ahead, and plan on staying for a few hours. It's a full dining kind of place, not a one course and leave. Pricey, but you're paying for quality top notch everything!

Visiting Bouchons is always a special treat when I visit this city! They consistently produce delicious French cuisine - the sauces are delicate and tasty and the presentation is always lovely. The service is consistently great - friendly yet professional. Although the restaurant space is relatively small, it is well laid out, giving guests space and privacy. The ambience is... More

Bouchons is our favourite restaurant. We can have a long, relaxing meal, or we can be out in just over an hour still having eaten an appy, main and dessert. The service is impeccable. The feature wines are always amazing. Yes, it's expensive but it is worth every penny. You get what you pay for.

I have nothing but complements and appreciation for this fabulous Bistro. From the moment you sit down you are taken care of by the best waiters in Kelowna. They are superb in every way by taking complete care of you without being overbearing or insincere. The FOOD is scrumptious. I have eaten at Bouchons several times and every item is... More

James, your waiter that night, first brought up the fact that you were using inappropriate language and disturbing other guests around you. After people sitting next to you complained, you were given the choice of moving to another table, which you accepted. We think that James is a true professional and handled the situation the best he could in these... More
