Advisedthe restaurant we were there for a 65th birthday and hoped to do something special and they offered us nothing.
Tried to redeem a Dining Reward which was identified during Open Table booking and the owner claimed he knew nothing about rewards. Would not have booked there if I had known they would not honor my reward.
Food adequate, service acceptable but nothing to rave about. Relatively cheap meal for that part of DC, otherwise not remarkable given so many dining alternatives in DC.

Terrible restaurant- I would not recommend. Food took over an hour to come to our table and when it did arrive, it was flavorless/bland and there was no apology that it was late.

We came at 2:00 PM for a Saturday brunch. The restaurant was very full - we were glad we got reservations. Our waiter was friendly and professional. The Smažáčky (Lightly Breaded Fried Provolone, Bistro Aioli) was a tasty appetizer. My H a l u š k y was a very solid stick-to-your-ribs plate. The other members of the party were quite satisfied with their bratwurst and schnitzel meals. You can’t have anything else than a great Czech beer with this food and there are several varieties to choose from - go for it!
The nutella crepes were awesome.
The atmosphere is casual. It was noisy when we went. We also parked in a parking lot about three blocks away instead of the headache of looking for street parking. Overall, we really enjoyed the experience and we will definitely return. I definitely recommend Bistro Bohem.

Met friends for dinner at Bistro Bohem; we hadn't seen each other in a long time and wanted a place where we could talk and enjoy good food. We all very much enjoyed the food, service, atmosphere, etc. One person ordered a drink and the waiter brought something slightly different because he said the bartender knew the drink wouldn't be good the way it was ordered so it was made differently. Some people would absolutely hate this but we went with the flow - it was such a European thing to do! Our table was next to the window which must get chilly sometimes so there where fleece lap blankets in every chair - also very European. Great fun, great service, food seemed very authentic; all in all it felt like a little getaway to Eastern Europe. Would definitely go back.

Delicious European fare with a charming ambiance. Our server gave us just the right amount of attention while also allowing our small group of friends to catch up over our meal. Highly recommend!

The food was over salted, with too many pre-prepared ingredients.

I took my boyfriend to Bistro Bohem to introduce him a Czech cuisine. We had a great time. The food was absolutely delicious. The staff was friendly. We can't wait to visit this restaurant again.

Sunday brunch was disappointing. Our party of 2 ordered and were told 2 of the items we ordered were not available. We chose this place for the borscht - and it wasn't available, as well as another item. Service was also lacking. We did not get full attention. The grilled cheese and egg sandwich was not as described since the bread was not grilled and the cheese was not grilled onto the bread. It was just an omlette placed in a sandwich.

The food at Bistro Bohem hit the mark on a very cold night. Our server was pleasant and efficient. We enjoyed our experience very much.

Went here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. The restaurant itself was super cute and cozy, the staff was great, the food was delicious (but hardy!). Perfect winter dinner where you can actually hear your date and not feel crammed. Definitely would eat there again.
