Small plates, soups, desserts, were great. Disappointed in he Boef Burgundy (higher grade of beef needed). Wine fairly priced (for restaurants). Lovely atmosphere.
Apetizers were creative and tasty. Basil Martinis are awesome.
Excellent preparation made with fresh ingredients. Top notch French cuisine-authentic. What I miss about actually being in a French restaurant is the noise level. Like far too many American restaurants the shouting and loud laughter sounds more like bar. The dinning room is beautiful but with hard surfaces and Amercans, not so peaceful.
Food was just ok - not well seasoned. $187 for 4 people- no alcohol. Service was nice but slow.
Great food and service as always .. we will be back soon!!!
Love this place as we use it.... we go just before 6 for the very reasonable 3 course fixed menu at $32. That is a great deal! and before six it is reasonably quiet. One room which has a nice atmosphere has stone walls and must be very loud when crowded. Another room isn't as "french" feeling. Our service last time was disappointingly slow especially given the early hour. Food very good.
Outside seating quieter. Mussels terrific. Service efficient and not intrusive. Lovely evening.
I go to this restaurant from time to time and always enjoy the experience, the food, the ambiance, the service. The fish is always outstanding.
Both my husband and I got sick with the food. I actually reacted right away after finishing my entree. We both shared the mussels and I believe they were not fresh. Will definitely not go back.
Very good food and service.
My salmon was very small and old. This was the first time I did
not really enjoy the food.
The food was very blend
The prix fixe menu was a very good value! Staff very pleasant and accommodating. Ambiance
quiet unlike many restaurants today. Main negative was the bare wood seats and benches. My group was five retired men who meet once a month for dinner. Service was slow so we had to stand up between courses to relieve our protesting posteriors! Never had to do that in a restaurant before.
Ambiance: lovely but NOISY
Yum! Such a great neighborhood staple with high quality, thoughtful food.
Absolutely amazing food and everyone is nice and polite. Highly recommended
Very good food and service. We had a great time there!
Amazing food! Thanks for a wonderful meal.
I've been here several times, and requested to go here for my birthday. It is always wonderful. I love that they offer a 3 course prix fix menu for only 32.00 from 5-6pm nightly. Great gem in the Kensington area.
We ate outside. Everything was great but the waiter apologized for the long wait between ordering and dining. Even getting our drinks took a long time
This would be such a great place if only the food lived up to the ambiance and service. I've eaten here 5-7 times and discovered it's more a question of what isn't bad, than what's good on the menu. The onion soup for example--thin, watery and too sweet. Nothing like what it's supposed to be--rich, deep and beefy. Ever hear of roasting beef bones then boiling them for hours in water with bouquet garni until the liquid reduces? Broth I believe it's called. Another example--both the salmon and steak tartare (had them on last visit) were completely unseasoned. Where's the salt, pepper (and for the beef a little mustard, egg yoke, chopped onion, pickle, maybe)? Not in those dishes. The mussels are okay--if only because you can't really mess those up. I don't think this is an execution issue with the cooks, I think the corporate bosses just don't have (or don't use) good recipes and ingredients. In short, bad food at high prices in what would otherwise be a great place given the quality ambiance and service.
Bleu Boheme always delivers! Service is great, cocktails are lovely, and the BREAD! My only complaint was the steak tartare, which was smoked (not raw) and otherwise flavorless. A poor choice if expecting a traditional French treat.
Dinner on Bastille Day started out well; service was slow because it was a Saturday and it had been busy earlier than our 8:00 reservation. But as tables started clearing, the service did not get more timely. Bread was prompt and good; water glasses were kept filled. Table was in a nice spot but was quite warm; when I mentioned that to the server he basically just agreed and implied there was nothing to be done. Appetizers were tasty. Husband’s rack of lamb special was delicious. My steak frite however, as I told the server, was disapponting. Meat was over cooked ( supposed to be medium rare), fries were tepid, and the kitchen had included carmelized onions (not mentioned on the menu) between my steak and the sauce bernaise, which defeated the taste of the sauce. (The waiter claimed they had just started including onions on steaks.) I sent it back to the kitchen after a few bites and said it wasn’t acceptable but at that point I didn’t want to wait any longer for a replacement. The manager came over, apologized for the busy kitchen (although no longer busy), and said they would comp drinks and desserts, which we thought meant for both of us. On the bill they did comp mine, total $24, but charged $32 for the steak. So the net cost meant I paid $8 for an entree I couldn’t eat.
Great little place in Kensington. A vast wine list to choose from and the food is superb. I was recommended this place by a friend and it did not disappoint!
Everything was fine, except that the noise level was a little high.
Fabulous dining experience
Food was alive with taste, service was smooth and the ambience was romantic
This is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. It is a rock solid 10 plus eatery.
We've celebrated many birthdays at BB, and will continue to because we've never been disappointed. The seasonal menu is nice, the service is always good/excellent, the wine list is authentic and varied, and the prix fixe menu is a great bargain!
This time we enjoyed two classic French dishes; steak frites and duck confit. Both were excellent! The bibb salad was very nice, and for dessert we selected profiteroles (good, not great) and a delicious chocolate mousse. In the past we loved the Alsatian onion and bacon tarte, will definitely have that next time!
Please keep up the good work!
This place is the best kept secret in San Diego. It is a very French atmosphere and will not disappoint. Our waiter, Leo, was very attentive and professional. The food here is creative and delicious.
Bleu Boheme is simply one of my favorites in San Diego!!
We come to Bleu Boheme over and over for the ambiance and delicious French food. Prices are pretty average for this type of restaurant. The house specialty is mussels and the many sauce options can't be beat. All are delicious. This time I tried the moutarde sauce and it quickly become my new fave. Friend had the mussels Provencales and she also raved. Love the extra bit of wine in every pichet. Nice. Hubby had the salmon, and although not a fan of eggplant, he did love the touch of eggplant puree.
Great fries, good wine, the rest was not recommendable...
It has great food and great service. The wine list is out of this world and it suits a French restaurant. I highly recommend the tasting menu if you're going there for the first time.
Our group gathering was to celebrate a friends birthday, and to continue a French theme that she has made a part of her life for now. Your restaurant was perfect in all aspects!!
We were really excited to try this restaurant for a special occasion and were very underwhelmed with the service and value. The service was poor and the quality of the dishes did not match up with the price point.
For Kensington, parking was easy. Service was excellent. Promptly seated, promptly asked for drink orders, handed menus. Hadn't been there for about six months, but our server remembered my wife and me and was very friendly. The main thing, of course, is the food. Maybe just a slight bit too salty. I had the Coquille St. Jacques with English peas and fingerling potatoes. Scallops done perfectly and those were the best peas I've ever eaten. My wife loved her chicken dish. Tried it; moist and delicious.
Most Romantic Restaurant in San Diegetic!
This place has been a favorite for years. Incredible consistency. Keep up the amazing work! Basil martini; great wine selection; steak frites to die for. Early bird special is a crazy good deal.
Have been and always been a loyal customer
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and have done so numerous time.
I have been waiting to visit this restaurant for a long time. The service was great. The food was amazing.
We were in from out of town for a graduation. We found this wonderful restaurant on open table. Food was delicious. I loved the French onion soup. I highly recommend this treasure.
