    It was disappointing that La Bouche a "French" wine bar does not offer Champagne by the glass. Actual Champagne, from the Champagne region of France. The stools at the bar I felt were very uncomfortable, the arm rests were useless. Also, "High Top" seating is different than "at the bar" you should specify - "at the bar". I was there for my Anniversary with my wife, I did not want to be at the bar. The lighting was far too bright, frankly. And while the Charcuterie board was fine, it was not great. The fruit seemed old, not fresh. I dont think I'll be back or recommend La Bouche.

    This was my second time at La Bouche after going in early 2022. Both times I’ve been disappointed- it just doesn’t have the charm you’d hope for given the vibe and pictures. Nice decour minus the many stacks of chairs visible at the back. The food often seems like it was just microwaved in the back although the veggie quiche itself was nicely made. Both times we’ve done the happy hour “choose 1 cheese” deal and while the cheese itself was yummy, they give three small pieces of bread for a table of two (why do restaurants do this haha please throw in another!) and some tiny grapes and cherry tomatoes. Not very aesthetically pleasing or the cute small bites you want with wine. Wine on draft was not a hit for us, but we bought a bottle off the menu and that was great. Service was just ok- came around to the table the minute we sat down to take our order and we weren’t ready so then she didn’t come back for a very long time and it was close to impossible to get the check at the end. Got very loud as it filled up. Minor detail but the seats are not comfortable unless you’re at the bar or the green lounge chairs (could use cushioning). Overall just not somewhere I feel the need to come back to again unfortunately.

    First time going to La Bouche and it was everything I hoped it would be. So charming, tasty, and friendly staff. Perfect for a stop over before dinner or to stay and order a bit more food (which we did). Everything was tasty and just an overall great environment.

    We had a great get together at La Bouche. The wine, food and service were all on point. The attention to detail was greatly noticed from the time we sat down -the beautiful and plentiful boards to the final sip of wine and delicious dessert. We can’t wait to return to this special, intimate place.

    32 / 5,000 Le restaurant était très charmant! I had a wonderful brunch at La Bouche. All of the staff were wonderful, helpful, pleasant, and willing to go beyond what was required. I enjoyed my brunch and cheeses very much, along with a lovely French sparkling wine that I'd never heard of before. A real gem.

    La Bouche was a fabulous happy hour spot with delicious wine flights and single glasses as well as cheese and charcuterie boards. The staff was helpful and attentive making our evening enjoyable and relaxed. They have a wide selection of wines, both bottled and on tap with great choices from France and the US.

    Great corner bar with fabulous food and fun ambience - except the DJ on Sunday was way too loud. It's not fun to have to shout at your table mates. Would have been much happier to sit outside on the patio. Maybe a more laid back Edith Piaf set for Sundays instead of crazy disco.

    Lovely patio for a summer evening in uptown. Nice wine selection with cheese and charcuterie boards. It's on colfax (but the patio faces downing), so there is some traffic noise but it is a lovely setting

    Without a doubt the worst dining experience I’ve ever had. I can’t rate the food because it never arrived. Wanting to treat my wife for Mother’s Day I made a reservation. This is a small place with a few tables inside and a few in the patio area. After we were seated we waited 10 minutes to be acknowledged by a server. Then, ordering a simple item like coffee and a croissant took another 15 minutes to be deliver to our table. We then ordered an egg dish a s a quiche for our main course. After waiting an hour and 15 minutes with no food in sight and little help from the wait staff we left. Pity the party of four seated next to us who saw only half of their orders arrive after waiting longer than us. It was a miserable experience and if I could rate the experience a zero I would.

    Wanted to try something different for Mother’s Day. And this seemed to marry together the casual wine bar and small bites really well. I don’t think they planned for Mother’s Day to be as busy as it was, but everyone was very kind and we had a lovely time. It was nice to find someplace where you don’t feel rushed out the door for the next client. The food and drinks were delicious. If we are up in the neighborhood again, I would stop by for a cocktail without question.

    The food was not fresh. It felt that I could have made a fresher salad and more thoughtful cheese board at home. The restaurant was way too lit for the evening, especially being a wine restaurant. Otherwise, the staff was extremely friendly and the restaurant was clean.
