Three of four members of our group thought the food was excellent. One member not so much so. But, even so, we will come back.

This is a gem in Kensington.
My only advice is to have an early or late reservation. 7pm is very busy and the chatter of all the people did not add to our dining experience.
We overheard our service describe the specials to neighboring tables, but failed to us. Oh well.

Good french fare, having lived in France for 30 years, I can say. The Onion Soup was tops, the Boeuf Bourgignon was amazing, though not classical, incredibly tender and the right taste. Profiteroles were disappointing, the puff pastry was way to thick and tough. Chevre chaud salad was good, in particular one of the more aged cheeses. I will likely return.

Bleu Boheme is a very, very good authentically French restaurant. No, it's not stuffy. It has a comfortable, neighborhood feel with a nice variety of food and wine.

The food and ambiance were perfect. The wait staff was the right level of attentive and not obtrusive. We had the onion tart, mussel bisque, scallops, steak frites, and duck confit. All of the fishes were very tasty and prepared well. For dessert we had the bread pudding, creme brûlée and flourless chocolate cake. All were extremely delicious. Highly recommend for a weeknight treat or everyday dinner.

This has been my favorite French restaurant in San Diego for many years. My most recent visit only cemented that opinion. They have the best moules frites provencale in southern California.

We love the food and the atmosphere. Our server forgot several items. I asked for Perrier twice and bread 3 times and never received either. The noise level is always high here but we know that when we go. We were there to celebrate a birthday and that was fun. For the price, the service should have been much better. Disappointed with this visit.

This was our second visit to Blue Boheme. The first was very good, but the food choices we made this time were not as good. In particular the Beef Bourgonone was the WORST preparation of this dish that I have ever had. Fatty beef, unpleasant broth. The salmon was good but the beef was terrible. The Mussel Bisque was very good. The desserts were fair at best.

The food and ambiance at Bleu Boheme are great. The service, however left a lot to be desired. It took at least ten minutes after we were seated for anyone to greet us. Our entrees arrived over an hour after we first sat down. It was a Saturday night, and the place was busy, but no one explained or apologized for the wait.

Honestly we love this place!! Frequent fliers...Calamari is YUM! Steak tartare with marrow butter bread is decadent. Highly recommend the pork ribeye bone in and the mussels Roquefort. Rosé to finish with mousse and a fromage plate. Oh! The French onion soup...to die for.. bon appétit!

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.

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.
