You might think that this name-brand chef's bistro in downtown Yountville is overpriced, but it's actually not. Flawless service, chewy bread, and house-made blood sausage are just a few of the treats. Make reservations in advance, or if you strike out on getting a table, at least stop by the next-door Bouchon Bakery for a snack to take with you to your next vineyard tasting.

A classic from Thomas Keller! Beautiful French food! The bone marrow is fantastic. The oysters are super fresh! Ask about their specials of the day. Definitely try one of their a la carte sides. Make sure you leave room for dessert, too. Their caramel creme is so amazingly silky and delicious! I can't wait to go back!

I'm a big fan of Thomas Keller so making a trip to Buchon was a real treat. The restaurant is a lot smaller than it appears to be from the outside, which is kind of nice if you're feeling intimate. The food did not disappoint at all, I ordered the my Gigot d' Agneau. I was expecting a huge leg of lamb like the table next to me and I was a bit disappointed that's not what I ordered since the item description said "leg of lamb." Instead my entree came with pieces of seared lamb. It was enjoyable, but I'm a big eater, I could have eaten two of my entrees! I was slightly jealous of my husband who ordered the Osso Bucco. The braised veal shank melted in my mouth like butter and I'm not a big fan of anything pumpkin, but its distinct flavor was not overpowering as it blended well with the veal. And the entree was big enough to satisfy my hunger! The soup of the day is also a nice way to warm up your tummy for what's to come. The soup that day I believe was an artichoke bisque. Very rich and creamy. It's not overly pricey for fine dining in Yountville like you would expect given it's physical address so I feel like anyone can afford to come here for a nice dinner out or a lunch on the patio. Portions are a good size for what you're paying and service is impeccable. If you don't have time to really sit down, Buchon Bakery does not disappoint!

Bouchon has fantastic bistro fare in a warm, relaxing, yet at times loud dining area. I suppose loud is fine because it adds to the "happy" atmosphere. Food and wine are both great, but we all knew that already.

Thomas Keller's French Bistro in the central Yountville area. Very good food here, and the place is very popular and crowded, although largely from people out of town. The place can get kinda loud as tables are close together, and there's a lot of marble, but that is after all kinda French.
The bar area is gorgeous, and a great place to come for oysters and a drink.
