The ambience is great. From the red carpet on you know you’ll have a great evening. A nice bar with a great atmosphere starts dinner off nicely, in fact you might just want to start in the bar! The menu itself is varied and imaginative and if you had to sum it up in one word then that word would be “Flavour!” The flavours are superb. It’s that simple. I can’t wait for the next time.

We hadn’t been for a while and now wondering why we left it so long. Staff are very attentive and friendly and the food was amazing. Then there are the gin cocktails!!! Fantastic choices. Will be back soon.

We have eaten at Le Bouchon many times and it never disappoints.
On arrival we were greeted by Sarah and shown to the bar for cocktails which were fab.
We were given the menu whilst we were at the bar so as we could choose our starters and mains before being seated. The restaurant was very busy with a private party in the Orangery but this did not impact on our wonderful meal or the service we received. We all enjoyed our food and cant wait to visit again.

We are regular eaters and it remains our favourite restaurant within the Chelmsford and surrounding districts . Food we have always found first class and service excellent . It feels like a special place to dine and friends we have taken to you have without exceptional been very impressed. Menu changing on a regular basis means you always enjoy new experiences whenever you dine .

I dined here recently with 2 friends for a pre-Christmas celebration. As on previous occasions I wasn't disappointed. The food, service and ambience was excellent. I have dined here with family and friends over a period of 2 years and have never had a bad experience. I always look forward to my visits to the Le Bouchon Brasserie.

We had not been to Le Bouchon for several years and now we wish we had not left it so long. It has risen to the top of our restaurants to go to list - and it's not far from home. We went for a Saturday evening meal and now want to try all the other options, especially Afternoon Tea. The staff, especially the maitre d', Tim, were all attentive without being 'in your face', the food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxed but smart.

We had Sunday lunch there and it couldn't be faulted. In particular we liked the Le Bouchon salad. This restaurant is a class act and good value. The magician came round to everyone and he was excellent. And Jenson Button was lunching with some friends at the next table...

Was greeted and asked whether we prefer to have a drink first or to be seated. We choose to be seated. Ella our waitress was very informative about the drinks and food, offering to change anything we didn't want. Once our food was serves she was unobtrusive, but managed to see if our drinks needed topping up or our plates cleared. The food was lovely. When I booked the table I was asked if it was for an occasion and confirmed ot was for a birthday. When the dessert was served it had a candle and happy birthday written in the plate. A small criticism is that although the plates were piping hot. The food wasn't so much, but delious never the less.

Excellent professional service, that takes an interest in its customers. Well presented food of high quality. Pleasant and varied environment with nice area for pre dinner drinks / cocktails.
It is the place to go if you like good service that also makes you feel welcome.
