Review: Bouchon BH - not great at all

Yes a bit slow on the uptake...when i get there i get there...someone took us out...and usually in that case the food tastes better cause i ain't getting the bill....not the case

I was at the one in Yountiville a few years ago...not that impressed then and not impressed now

Food: C+ (pretty mediocore)
Value: B
Service: B- (fine, not that interested in us)
Would I go back?: nah
Atmo: A- (beautiful restaurant)
Drinks: A- (very well made)

Full Menu:
What we drank: some cucumber cocktail which was very good

What we ate:

Bread- fine

Oysters - fresh yes, small yes, worth $18 for half dozen - not even close.

Tomato Salad- good

Steak Frites - I should not be eating a piece of meat that is so full of cartlidge or whatever you call it. You shouldn't have to cut around the center of the meat to get a mouthful of decent steak. The butter on top added so little to the steak

Fries - eh, they should be able to do better

Mussels - like the oysters, the mussels were also teeny tiny and not exactly succulent. They were ok - the butter broth was good. but drinking it with a spoon did wonders on my stomach the next day

Dessert: meringue with vanilla creme anglaise
I put heaping 3 teapspoons in my coffee every morning so i like sweet, but this was over the top sweet and not at all in a good way. I've had better meringue desserts on a cruise ship

My fellow diners had chicken dishes and some other steak dish -- everyone seemed less then dazzled.
