A dinner at restaurant Bouchard spoiled by an obnoxious loudmouth only to be hushed by a fellow gentlemen diner instead of the restaurant staff. What is wrong with the restaurant if they allow this to go on. Go elsewhere. There is no class here.

We have visited the restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The cuisine and ambiance are decidedly French influenced and harken to many an evening in am upscale Paris bistro. Reflective of that French influence you will find dishes such as escargot, beef carpaccio,...More

When calling to make a reservation, they told me the dress code was business casual meaning a collared shirt with no jeans for men.
