Service fantastic we took our time and they acknowledged my friend’s birthday. She loved the mussels and the escargot tho not in the shell was in wonderful sauce. However Spanish onion soup and short rib too sweet from the sherry for me. Creme brûlée and chocolate mousse fantastic! She liked her white wine waiter Leo recommended. Discovered absinthe tastes like black licorice so didn’t care for the champagne mix for Hemingway’s drink. Stick with his Mojito and Prosecco in the future! Ha! Their Syrah red wine was yummy! Dinner for 2 about $225. Birthday gal was blown away. Next time I’ll get the scallops if no sherry in the sauce. Too expensive with lobster risotto I wouldn’t want. I will go back if special occasion and someone treats me or go “Dutch”. Might try other dishes via takeout. All in all recommend trying Bleu Boheme, it’s ambience, service and Leo! Thanks, Bleu Boheme for a special night!

One of our favorites in town for great authentic French food. From our starter plates to the shared mussels and the pork chop and oyster/mushroom ravioli entrees to the creme brulee dessert all outstanding dishes

Bleu Boheme never disappoints. The food is exceptional, and so is the service. Christy was our server. She was friendly, efficient, and her recommendations were much appreciated.

This is a gem of a restaurant in San Diego! I have never been to France, but I felt transported to another place. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious. We had the Moules Frites aux Champignons and the Gnocchi à la Parisienne. The Basil Martini was absolutely delicious. This is now one of my favorite restaurants. I can't wait to come back and try other dishes.

What a wonderful time we had at Bleu Boheme! They have lovely tables set up outside with heat lamps keeping everything cozy. The service from Leo was very friendly and the food delicious! We go there often for special occasions, like New Year's or, you know, Tuesday.

It's a great place that combines the vibe of a neighborhood restaurant and a fancy place, always full of locals, including us!

If you haven't been already, don't go! I want to keep this place an intimate secret! The ambiance and service were outstanding! The menu was well planned, wine selection is well-rounded. You have to try the Lobster Crepe, the Onion Tart, and the Beef Bourguignon. Would love to make several excuses to keep returning! Such a nice change from the national high-end dinner establishments. Okay Go!!

Charming atmosphere with wonderful, classic bistro menu. Salads are delicious but Sauces could have been more flavorful- e.g. moutarde, saffron, provencale. Service was slow and loud music made it difficult to enjoy conversation while waiting.

Service was bad. Even with reservations. We had to wait to even get greeted. Then from them on it took longer and longer for each item. Drinks, ordering, dessert, bill. Wasn’t impressed with the food. Not what this restaurant once was. Very disappointing.

Simply amazing food. You must try the mussels. Service was prompt and to the point. Waitress was quick to respond when asked for her favorites. Meal came quickly and portions are larger than you’d expect for a higher end restaurant. Will definitely return.

No better place to sample French fare than Bleu Boheme. In particular, a great variety of traditional Moule Frites (mussels and fries) options as well as other French standards. Even their bread supply is satisfyingly crusty. Portions will not leave you hungry and of course, there are other options besides mussels and all are very tasty.

We hadn’t been in a long time and decided to go because their fall menu was advertised. We got there and it was the exact same menu they’ve had for years except prices are much higher. Cocktails were excellent. Food was good but menu is limited. We won’t be rushing back despite living in the neighborhood.

Cow au vin was acceptable but I wouldn’t recommend. Profiteroles was terrible. Pastry puff was soft and mushy. We been to Bleu Boheme many times before but it’s never been this bad with food & service. I will not try again for awhile & hope it gets better in time.

I hadn’t been to Bleu Boheme in over two years and was very disappointed in my experience this time; I don’t know if this was an off night or the new normal. Service was friendly but incredibly slow and servers kept apologizing to tables for how long drinks and food were taking. Our mains arrived about 90 minutes after we were seated and were just okay. The steak was tough and I didn’t finish it. The mussels didn’t have much flavor and there was no bread offered at any point.

The cheese and meat half board is enough for two, but the cheese selection, at least, was very pedestrian. I’d hoped for at least one cheese that I can’t buy at Trader Joe’s or the like.

We were seated outside near a heat lamp but it made very little difference, so if you’re sitting outside, be sure to dress for the weather.
