Duck was very dry - disappointing. Steak frite were fine but the crepes were a major let down - reheated but served cold. Not the way a purported Lyonnaise restaurant would serve a signature dish

we were here for lunch. food was just average, taste was rather dull, in particular the duck breast. taste was lacking and the juice did not go along with the duck. kind of disappointed in fact. we were losing confidence on the food as we...ate, did not even bother with dessert.More

The duck was hard and leathery. It was also only a small piece with not much garnishing and the calves liver were hard to find in the plate. Altogether most disappointing as we had been looking forward to a good meal. Service was fine. The...sorbet was too sweet and we couldn’t eat it. It is all very expensive considering we came away hungryMore

We dined as a group of friends for lunch at Le Bouchon. We had booked an outside table and even though the temperature was little warm the plastic canopy was able to be opened and a very pleasant breeze was available. The service was very...good, with much humour. We were warmly welcomed for trying our newly, and basic, French and given amusing but very useful feedback. The meals were great. Escargot in garlic for entrée was lovely. I had a steak fillet "a pointe" which was delicious as was the "Ille Fontant" desert. My friends all spoke well of their meals and we had a lovely lunch. Will return. Merci!More

Love this restaurant! I've been 4 times now and have really enjoyed all experiences. Highly recommend the matching wines with the Degustation

We came here because of Trip Advisor. The food was good but not special. Didn't really enjoy the wine, there was no bread offered (in a French restaurant) and the rest was average. Nice atmosphere and staff so will return to try again....

Le bouchon is consistently good. I went last Friday for dinner. It is a little bit of France in Sydney. Excellent French wines and the liver is the best. French waiters so the service is professional and attentive. We can’t go to France but we...can go to Le Bouchon!More

My onion soup was excellent; thick and rich in flavour. My wife's main of pan roasted sirloin was cooked just as she liked it and was tender and tasty. It was a dish for two but as I didn't fancy beef that night they kindly...prepared a single portion for her at half the price. My duck main was not that great. I've been forever spoilt by the exceptional roast duck served by chef Robert at the Kaiser Stub'n in Terrey Hills and no roast duck served anywhere is has ever measured up to this. Somehow cooks elsewhere are unable to produce a duck with the moistness, flavour, freshness and crispy skin like Robert but I still live in hope. The French fries side were crisp and thin and tasty. My wife's light meringue dessert was exceptional. My selection of ice cream and sorbet was as you'd expect, as this isn't the most challenging or varies of desserts. The wide variety of cocktails, beers, wines (including by the glass), aperitifs, digestives, dessert wines and dessert cocktails and other specialty liqueurs was impressive and comparable in price to what you'd pay in similar places. The staff were polite, helpful, attentive and cheerful. Overall an expensive night out but better overall experience for the price compared to others in the same range.More

As there were ten of us including children a breakfast seemed more appropriate for a quiet birthday celebration. Choices were good including crepes and coffee and drinks were fine. Staff were friendly and looked after us well. A nice start to the day
