Food was excellent. Service was not great. Waitress got initial order wrong, and then forgot a desert order later. They did comp the desert, when they brought it like 20 minutes later. We usually have good service here.

Had s great lunch for Mother’s Day but didn’t realize it was fixed price till we were sitting down ordering drinks. It was fine but wished I had asked sooner. Didn’t note it on open table when made reservations

Four stars for food, five for everything else. Lobster bisque was OK. Tarte chaud was great. Beef Bourgonone (sp) also great. Salmon was delicious. All the deserts were good. Pleasant place to dine overall.

The restaurant is lovely and the food delicious. Highly recommend the quiche for brunch. I know it’s a French dining experience served in multiple courses, but the brunch took 2 hours. As adults, that’s no problem; however, small children don’t do as well with a long dining experience. Something to consider.

I was at Blu Boheme recently and had a great experience. This time as I was treating a friend for her birthday, the experience was disappointing, too noisy, waiter was too rushed and did not bring what I ordered, plus the wine arrived late.

Kitchen was very slow. Took 50 min to get entrees. Server was nice enough to offer a complimentary dessert but it took so long that we were not going to wait any longer.

Food was salty, and the kids Mac n cheese was salty and loaded with black pepper which was at some point disturbing for us adults.
Onion soup and steak exceeded expectations.
Our server was awesome!

Excellent menu. The food is creative without being contrived or exaggerated. Many restaurants completely ignore the noise level, making it difficult or impossible to carry on a conversation. Here we were able to talk which is for me a very significant part of the pleasure of a good meal. We avoid restaurants with high noise levels no matter how good the food. Also, there is parking in the rear.

Our experience at Bleu Boheme started with a card wishing us a Happy Anniversary which was signed and then placed on the table. The little touches continued from there. The candlelight on the table was from tall candles which back-lit the room bouncing off the brick walls. The soup was divine as was the salad. The beef bourguignon was superb with a delightful flavor and, oh so tender meet. The coquilles San Jacques was prepared perfectly as well. We were brought a scoop of chocolate mousee as a complimentary dessert to celebrate. It was perfect: light and just the right amount of sweetness. We will be back!

We had opted for the set menu. The portions are slightly smaller than ordering individually but it was still more than enough food. Everything was delicious. I had the butter lettuce salad and would definitely recommend it! The variety of flavors was wonderful! I order salmon as main course which was served over mixed vegetables- all vey tasty. Desert east a coconut mango bread pudding, also very good. Look forward to going back. Oh and free parking in the bank lot after six.

Celebrated 2 of my BFF bdays. This place is always an oldie, but a goodie for us. My girls and I love the mussels. Great place to dine and hang out for hours, except it is very pricey. One appetizer, 3 mussel entrees, 2 fish dishes and dessert cost over $300!
