    Everything we had here was outstanding and the service was top notch. I especially liked the Goat Cheese Cake w/ Beet Ice Cream and the Tomates Farcies, Squash and Bell Pepper Risotto (side dish).

    What a pleasant surprise. If it wasn't for the fact that everything else in the area closes at 10p, I would have never found it. Small, quaint, a great wine list and fabulous food. Pork belly!!!

    The market greens were broccoli with a cauliflower cream. Awesome! We just had 5 appetizers and a bottle of wine and we were stuffed. Charcuterie, pork belly, crepinette, and mâché salad! So good!

    Exceedingly charming matchbook-size dining room, French accents, and delicious California-French fare that avoids the overplayed pitfalls of the genre, Bouche has it all. [Eater 38 Member]

    This place was simply amazing. Wandered upon it on NYE, got to sit in a little front window spot. Felt very much like I was back in my adopted home of Paris. Food was spot on excellent.

    Came based on 4SQ's rating & that it was open late, & was not disappointed. Cozy atmosphere. Sat in the window, & ate scallop carpaccio, pork shoulder, & creme fraiche custard. Delicious.

    The cheese plate and the lamb shoulder are beyond incredible. Can't really go wrong here. If you drink wine, have them suggest a red -- you'll be glad you did.

    Order the salmon for the appetizer, pork belly for the entree and the creme fraiche custard for dessert. Your taste buds will immensely thank you for this!

    Can't go wrong with anything here. Surprisingly, a real standout was the pear salad. Fresh, delicious and simple. Go here, and go here often.

    Top Notch! Order the salmon as an appetizer and for the entree order the Halibut with chorizo. I loved it!

    The food here is amazing and the small wine list is very carefully curated. (I don't use that word lightly.)

    This place is on my VERY short list of places where I'm comfortable putting myself in the chef's hands. Nuff said.

    Servings are really small here - we left hungry after 3 course dinner. I got pork loin with turnips and it was literally 5 slices of pork and 2 small roasted turnips :(
