This was everything I wanted it to be. The decor was beautiful, the service was warm and welcoming and the food was amazing. My husband and I were swept off our feet by the whole experience. We had the escargot, mussels, and duck comfit. It was so rich and satisfying. We will be back again and not just reserve for special celebrations. Thank you to the staff of Bleu Boheme for making my husband's birthday extra special for us both.

This particular night, service was a problem. Fifteen minute wait for a reserved table. About 20 minutes until our order was taken. About 30 minutes until the food was served. The waiter forgot the salad. He was pleasant enough, but we didn't see much of him. Food was very good, but not sure if I'll try the restaurant again unless I have a couple of hours to kill and lots of patience.

I had the mushroom raviolis and I loved them. My wife had the grilled salmon and it was just okay. The waitress forgot to put my daughter's kids order in so it arrived as my wife and I where finishing up our dinner. It is very loud in the back room due to large parties. I recommend getting a table in front room if you want less chattering.

Food was excellant. Ambience was wonderful. A little loud, so be prepared for tables near you to hear your conversation if you want to be heard at the table. Altogether a charming and lovely place.

Probably not a good idea going on a holiday. Food average when previously it had been very good. Food service slow but wait staff attentive. Soup (mushroom) had nothing going for it except mini croissant on top. Will probably come back on strength of prior good meals.

Came for a pre Valentine’s Day date. Disappointed barely begins to express my feeling about our meal. I love this restaurant and know it can be great. It was not. My favorite, the steak frites, was cold, chewy, and oversalted. The sauces (for which we had to pay extra) were all cold. The value for the meal was horrible- this is not a cheap restaurant. I truly hope they get their act together otherwise I need to find a new French restaurant.

Nice place with good ambiance . Very busy on the weekends. Could not park in their lot and was relegated to the streets. Table was not ready at reservation time, but 15 minutes later. Service was a bit slow, but all servers were competent and pleasant. Overall food was very good, but not mind blowing. Enter prices are very fair, but they make up for it with overpriced appetizers/salads/soups. Desert was just above average.

The boeuf bourguignon was almost as good as I remembered from previous visits. However, the attempt to turn the chocolate mousse into an upscale dessert didn't work - the crust was bland, and took away from the flavor of the mousse, which had become dry. The entire thing tasted as though it had been sitting in the refrigerator for a couple of days. Better to make a simple, delicious mousse daily and serve it bistro style! The only vegetarian main course option (ravioli) was unfortunately quite bland. I hope they up their game to become the restaurant they used to be!

Wonderful from beginning to end. Ambience, service , and the food were everything We we’re hoping for. If there was any down side , it was desert.The profiteroles( cream puffs)were really disappointing. But everything else more than made up for them. Had they been good, it would have been a perfect dining experience. We will definitely return.

Absolutely love this place! And we can walk to it!! Would suggest some menu changes/specials that don’t involve shellfish or seafood. Plenty of moules already. Maybe a new chicken choice. Jadori is getting old. Perhaps a lamb dish.
However, this is one fabulous restaurant, we’ll come back whatever.

We were here for restaurant week, party of 4. My 3 guest were happy with their selection but I was disappointed with mine(tarte of Reblochon and boeuf Bourguignon) We all had a good experience over all and I will give it another try. Good wine selections/by the glass!

We were there during restaurant week, and really enjoyed our price fixed meal. I had the scallops and my husband had the pork. Both excellent, and the creme brûlée took me back to Paris! From some reviews I was worried that the portions would be small, but that was not the case, I’m happy to say....the mussels were a very generous portion especially. It was a busy night and we felt a little rushed, but when we asked to hold back the dessert for a while they were quite happy to do so. The noise level was higher than I expected, but I’m assuming it was because it was busier than usual. I look forward to coming back.

My friends and I already had reservations at another restaurant but someone mentioned Bleu Boheme, since it was Restaurant Week. We cancelled our other reservation and was so glad we did. We had a comfortable table and were able to sit and talk and enjoy a lovely, tasteful dinner. Service was excellent. The room was a bit noisy but we were still able to carry on conversation.

We had a good time, but the onion soup was not very good and the warmed gingerbread dessert was also pretty. The only redeeming factor was the chicken...it was very good. Also ordered ice tea and were given bottles for $5.95 each. Yes I know I should have asked if it was fresh brewed, but.....Would have not been a good night if the chicken was great. Oh well.

My wife & I like to come to Bleu Boheme on special occasions because it is has a uniquely romantic atmosphere, but I realized we should come more often because everything is so good. After starting us off with generous pours of champagne, my wife enjoyed scallops that were pan-seared perfectly and my Jidori chicken breast was also exemplary. The timing of food arrival and the temperature were perfect. Our server was both knowledgeable and very personable, and his wine recommendations met our requests exactly and were excellent. This restaurant is elegant but quaint, located in a charming neighborhood, with parking in the back.

As usual, Bleu Boheme provided a delicious meal in a warm environment. Unaware that it was restaurant week, we were surprised to see a prix fix menu, but there was a good range of delicious options. I tried their special mixed drink, as well, and it was delicious, potent and not too sweet. We count on this restaurant, and it really hit the spot after a very trying day.

I went to Bleu Bohème on a date during Restaurant Week. The only menu offered was their Restaurant Week pre-fixe menu, which was a limited selection from their normal menu with upcharge options. The food was delicious. The service quick, friendly, and attentive. The ambiance was romantic and comfortable. It was one of the best dining experiences I’ve enjoyed in recent years. I highly recommend it, and though a bit pricey, it was worth it and I will be back!
