If you are from San Francisco bay area you should be no stranger to Bouchon. It is yet another creation from the legendary restaurateur Thomas Keller's. Not to be confused with Bouchon bakery (which could be found nearby), the Bouchon bistro is a sit down restaurant featuring casual (but upscale) French fare with Californian twist. Bouchon is not the poor man version of French Laundry or Per Se. It is a whole new different concept. If you are expecting classic fine dining there are plenty of excellent choices on the strip.
Seafood are flown daily from the bay area. For those of you that are not from the beautiful San Francisco, this is a great place to sample some of the best freshness this city have to offer. The seafood plateau looks absolutely amazing but even the petit version could be quite a challenge to finish.
Entrees were all likable. Our server recommended Blanquette de Lotte (roasted monkfish) saying it is one of their most popular dishes. Strangely, I found the monkfish texture a little dry and the sauce rather ordinary. Gigot d'Agneau (roasted leg of lamb) was very tender and flavorful. It is difficult not to enjoy a lamb dish that is cooked to the perfect temperature. The highlight of the night was actually the Poulet Rôti (roasted chicken). The meat, even the usually drier breast pieces, was moist and tender. The skin was perfectly crispy.
It was a shame I was too full to try their dessert.
Food was very good overall but nothing out of the world spectacular. Some might even consider the food pretty pricey for what you get but hey, this is Vegas.

Honestly I was disappointed here. Simple food prepared properly but great lack of flavor. Nice atmosphere, great location and great service. Oyster bar. Probably won't return because there's so many great restaurants in Vegas and other Bouchons in the country are better than this one.

A great place for a delicious brunch! It's on the fancier side...not your basic eggs and bacon. But if you're up for a richer brunch experience (yes, that also implies more calories), go to Bouchon. I love going here with my girlfriends on Sunday mornings before we leave Vegas.Recommended for:Trendsters

Service is 5 stars!
Planned a brunch event here for one of my best friends bachelorette weekend debacheries. The manager told us their policy does not allow reservations made for brunch but to call and he will do his best to take care of our group and that he did. We got our own private room with a super sweet waitress that answered to our every need, difficult considering there were 14 of us - all women!
The food was nothing short of amazing and the bachelorette got a comp'd dessert.
Extremely pricey but nice to indulge once in a while.

One of the best brunches in Vegas. They don't have the burger all the time during brunch (it's a special) but I've seen my friends swoon over that burger. I usually end up with the croque madame (ham and cheese sandwich with behamel and sunny side up egg on top, with the best fries ever!), or the chicken and waffles (roasted chicken, waffles with chives in them). Love their bread, butter and jam as you sit at the table. The American breakfast is a boatload of food, (mmm, bacon!) but it comes with everything you'd want to taste for breakfast.

Stayed at the Venetian over the weekend, fell in love with Bouchon bakery (HELLO, carrot cake cookie) next to our rooms, and then continued to hop on over to the 10th floor to taste regular Bouchon's Chicken & Waffles everyone raved about for brunch.
The chicken itself was roasted, not fried, and one of the softest chicken I've had the pleasure to sink my teeth into. The waffles had chopped chives in the waffle batter, with chopped up bacon sprinkled on the top. The waffles were tangier than usual, and it was a pretty decent pairing with the chicken.
Will I ever fully absorb the concept of how these two things pair? Doubt it. -_-
The dish comes with sauce chasseur (kind of like a brown gravy/glaze), the waitress suggested that we dip our frites in there. You have to and it's a must, there are bacon bits with that salty braised chicken grease roux. Awesome.
Also took bites of what I wanted more of:
Croque Madam - good but very very heavy
Open-faced Tuna Sandwich - loved that they used capers
Definitely not a bad place for brunch, I will probably be back to explore other options.
BTW, their macarons are subpar (hitting 2 reviews in 1, hiy-ah!)

I Love Bouchon. Everything here is so good but we usually come here for brunch. Their french toast is amazing, the croque madame is great, the mimosas the bomb. I love their oysters, their mussels with fries, pretty much everything on their menu. Expect to pay a lot of money. It's a Thomas Keller resto after all.

as part of a food filled weekend with my girlfriends - this was our last stop. Chicken and Waffles here I come.
We started off the brunch with some pastries. The assorted pastry plate included 4 pastries - and there are four of us - that'll work. Oh - and we can pick which ones we want? No problemo.
One of my friends and I got the chicken and waffles. yum yum yum. The chicken was so good and the waffles were a savory waffle with chives and bacon.
One of the other girls got corned beef hash. so delicious.
Lastly - the last one got the french toast. Oh my goodness - it was divine.
Our waiter - Matthew - was fabulous. Not only was he a great waiter, he was funny to boot and joking around with us.
the profiteroles that we had at the end were quite fabulous as well. It comes with vanilla gelato - cold service - with the waiter pouring hot fudge over the top. totally decadent.
It's definitely expensive-but worth every penny.

Yummm! Finally went to grab a bite for breakie at Bouchon. I was completely satisfied. Great restaurant tucked away in the Ventia Tower. I had the beignets which were a little different than New Orleans beignets (these were more like cinnamon warm donuts) - they were quite delish though! I also had my usual non fat latte and the hash and egg whites. My friend ordered the bread pudding french toast, it was SUPER decadent in a bread pudding french toast kind of way. OMG! I was so full, I only had one bite but if you are looking for sweet, that's the way to go. Service was good. This is a great stop in the morning before you start your day. I can't wait to return. If you aren't looking for a sit down place or in a hurry catch Bouchon Bakery (my fav!) on the other side of the hotel, near the other towers elevator bank.
