La Boheme (Fair Oaks) reviews from OpenTable diners

    Everyone in our party agreed that the dinner was very good. LaBoheme never disappoints. Only huge disappointment was that that was their last Saturday night - forever. They were closing the doors the following Tuesday. So sorry to see them go.

    Two of our group of four really loved and enjoyed their dinners (rib eye and halibut). The other two (pork tenderloin) thought their dinners were okay - nothing special. It was our first time there and expectations were high. The ambiance was lovely and the service outstanding. Will try again and order differently. Also, $20 corkage fee seems a little much!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/15/2013
    La Boheme is looking tired. The decor is outdated and the restaurant is musty smelling. The food was good, but not as great as I was expecting from the prices. The service was good, but maybe a little too good. I really don't need my water glass refilled after every sip. Our waiter knew the menu exceptionally well and was terrific.

    Just too close to home to think about often enough, but, this is a neighborhood treasure that has been consistently a cut above for years. Would highly recommend that it be tested at least once.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    Valentine's Day isn't always the best night to go out for a special meal. This evening the restaurant had a 'Holiday' menu which was less extensive than the usual menu so we had limited choices.We didn't know that before making the reservation. The food was delicious, though in my husband's opinion, sparse. We have to remember that French restaurants are known for serving small portions. My seafood dish was cooked perfectly and my husband's steak was wonderfully tender. We will go back to La Boheme when its not a holiday.

    This place was awesome. The food fantastic and the wait staff was great. Mike took such good care of us and as I understand he has been there for some time. My friend had been there previously as she lives in the area. I happened to Google for a restaurant in the area and found this place by accident but she knew it well. Again food was awesome, service impectable and ambiance wonderful. Nice gas fire in the fireplace on a cool Sacramento night. Will go back there everytime I visit now!

    We love La Boheme and go there several times a year. This was the first time we had been there on a "holiday," however, and were disappointed that the menu was severely limited and the prices were hiked up much higher than on a regular day. We did enjoy the food and service - nice way to spend New Year's Eve.

    We have a tradition that between Christmas and New Year's some of us "ole" friends get together for a fabulous night out and we've chosen La Boheme for the last three years and intend to keep the tradition going. Food is excellent, service is excellent and always a treat for us! Enjoy, we sure do!

    Terrific restaurant! La Boheme is a Sacramento/Fair Oaks treasure that never disappoints. I'm concerned that more people have not discovered this one-of-a-kind French/American dining spot. Would hate to see La Boheme close because of a lack of customers who still relish a leisurely and lavish foodie event. Service is exceptional and the menu selections are plentiful and truly perfect for every taste. Slocom House closed -- and this is your substitute -- and even better -- so try it! You'll like it!

    Our first visit. Nice older darker dining room with fireplace. No wine by the glass list, waiter tells you what they have. My ladies scallops were excellent, my twin filets were well done, I requested medium. The desserts are truly great. The only place I know in the Sacramento area that still does flambe tableside. Our crepes suzettes were excellent. If you call ahead they will make almost anything you want from beef wellington to grand marnier souffle.

    Excellent traditional French cuisine. This is a traditional style French restaurant with personal service. From appetizer to dessert, all are traditional, generous servings with attentive service. The flaming desserts are a great experience for all they're prepared at your table. My first experience to celebrate my wife's birthday and we couldn't be more pleased with the experience. It is a traditional classic decor and we felt complete privacy, no noise interruptions and a space for the two us. It was a great evening and it will be a new favorite. Thank you

The special items of the night -- kangaroo and elk as well as the standard appetizer of escargot made for a memorable birthday. The house wine was very good as well.

    I have been to La Boheme a number of times over the years, but this time, the owner was working solo - no staff help other than the kitchen, so he had to do everything from seating, taking orders, serving and busing. We were in no hurry so it wasn't an issue with us, but he told us that it was a Monday night, he only had one reservation, and thought it would be really slow. It was, except those who were there, about 14 came at the same time. Food was very good as usual, but the decor is becoming quite dated. And it is rather an odd place for a French restaurant, but its been there for about 20 years.
