Deliciously complex flavors. Excellent sauce that complimented my mushroom ravioli and the crab cakes will not disappoint!

We attended Bleu Boheme for the 4th year in a row for Thanksgiving Dinner. As always, Ken Irvine does an amazing job. This place is a must go to if you’ve never been. It is quaint French bistro ambiance with great service and fantastic food.

We had Thanksgiving there.
The best turkey I have ever had-so moist and three big slices.
The mashed potatoes were good and the stuffing with mushrooms wonderful.
$68.00 for the meal included appetizer and dessert.
Great Restaurant.
Friendly staff, super crowded!

Hot warm sourdough bread. Tasty Brussels sprouts with butternut squash and bacon. Yummy escargot de la vielle, great texture! Bouef bourguignon had great beef, but the sauce failed to meet expectations. It was sweet which initially reminded me of bbq sauce. I was expecting something more savory.

Great classic French fare! We especially liked the spices in the escargot gratin. The beef borgonion was delicious, but my companion found the sauce to be a bit on the sweet side. The service was good without being fussy. The atmosphere was charming … great for a romantic dinner.

Paris in San Diego Increable!!

Service - Fantastic

Ambiance - we were in Paris in the 15th or 16th Arondisement

Food -

onion soup - a big disappointment

Muscovy duck - totally dry - over cooked

I wish the food were better - we would be here every week.

Perfect! That is getting hard to find after covids effects on restaurants. Service: attentive waiter and water person. Nicely decorated, food was top notch. The black mussels were the fleshiest ive ever encountered! Real menus, fully staffed, lots of candles adding to ambiance. Nice bonus they have PARKING!

Excellent dinner. Basil martini is the drink option to try. Skip the other martinis. Might’ve been checked on too frequently? Interrupted our conversation quite a bit. I appreciate an attentive staff, but I also appreciate the opportunity to get lost in conversation when out one on one. Some of us don’t get those opportunities every day of the week.

Everything was delicious and presented and plated lovely. This was a very pleasant surprise for us and we'll be back. Drinks were made properly and poured well. Everything was exquisite as well as service. Highly recommend the crepe au homard it faves in your palate and has every texture and flavor erupt, absolutely delicious! The confit de canard was prepared with the right about of herbs and crispy you need on the duck skin. When I come back I hope to try the scallops I had my heart set on them and they sold out before I could order them.

Great service, food, ambiance! We shared several dishes, creating a three-course meal. A lot of food and took home soup and bread. Wanted Room for the main plate of scallops and lobster risotto (scallops fresh and cooked to perfect tenderness) and dessert. All the food was delicious! Would recommend Bleu Boheme. Having a meal here, you need to allow time (no rush between courses) allowed to savor the food and enjoy the ambiance. The dining experience was very romantic and lived up to all the reviews.

The staff, the food and ambiance was excellent. We definitely would recommend this restaurant to all our friends. The staff was attentive and friendly. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and they seated us in the back for more privacy. It felt like we were back in Europe. Everything we ordered including dessert was amazing.

Our Bleu Bohème hostess, water lady, and server "Jorge" performed an exemplary dinner service, and catered to our every need. Bleu Bohème takes care of birthdays and serves exquisite meals for all palates. We are recommending Chef Ken's resplendent destination to all our family and friends. Merci Boucoup, Bleu Bohème! Nous apprécions Bleu Bohème dans le cadre de la tapisserie de Kensington!

Even though Bleu Boheme was out of mussels, their specialty and the main reason we come here, our evening was wonderful. Service was great! The food we had: onion tart, crab croquettes, onion soup, coq au vin were deliciously scrumptious. Ambiance is calm and serene and oh, so French. We will return.

Not our first time at this excellent restaurant on Adams Avenue in the beautiful Kensington neighborhood. This time the service was a little slow, but understandable. The place was packed with diners. We've sat inside and out and although you get a different feel, the experience is worth it either way. The Waitstaff is always very friendly and has a great memory. The food is always characteristic and very tasty. Excellent selection of wines, finished of by very good desserts. Don't forget to order the bread, it's a tasty treat to start of with.

The menu is ALL delicious..makes deciding on one thing very hard..so go with friends and share!! The mussels à la moutarde are INCREDIBLE!!! (Best with a glass of sauvignon blanc or a white burgundy!) We had the boeuf Bourgignon and the duck confit and loved them!! Desserts were yummy, but I had the appetizer French cheese platter with a glass of Ferreira ruby Porto..so good!! This is a must-try..and make sure you make reservations!!!

The worst service I've encountered in any restaurant! They didn't change the paper table cloth it was soiled after the previous guest used it. There was no wait staff to attend to me, the obnoxious bartender who took my order kept touching the table and leaning in too close for covid safety. No one showed up to service me, I should have given you no tip, but I l didn't do that hoping the tip would go partly to the staff who helped me. The tall young guy was very helpful in getting me check and gives me better hope for the place.

Bleu Boheme is our favorite restaurant in San Diego, regardless of culinary specialty. The food, obviously is superb, the staff is top-notch, and they remember us! We're working our way through the menu, although our favorites are slowing down the process. Lots more visits in the future!

We arrived early and they seated us early, lovely indoor table as requested. Took a little longer than usual to take the drink order but once that was done, service was excellent. It was our anniversary and they gave us a nice card signed by the staff and homemade chocolate mousse. Fabulous!
