30th wedding anniversary. There was a table (inside) full of women and they were loud but it was all good. Nice to see people out and enjoying themselves.

The "background" music should be more background.
When space is available, seat guests farther apart.

Wonderful, very popular, very French restaurant. Their boeuf bourguignon is fantastic. So is their chocolate mousse. They have a knowledgeable, attentive staff and an excellent wine list. We have eaten there many times and never been disappointed.

We were regulars at Bleu Boheme but just started to come back the last couple of months. We missed the ambience, staff, drinks and the food. It's fantastic to see they are better than ever. We love GG and Leo!

This Kensington area restaurant has such delicious food and French ambience, I felt as if I were on trip to Europe.
Our server, Kristi, was spectacular and suggested the perfect wine and Entrées for a wonderful evening.
I have made this my “go to” restaurant and plan to return regularly.

The food and service were most excellent. We are repeat customers and thoroughly enjoy the "feel" of the restaurant and food choices they offer. My only complaint this time was that it was very noisy in the main room which made it hard to talk and be heard, otherwise our experience was wonderful! I definitely recommend giving Bleu Boheme a try.

Scrumptious! Pot of mussels for starters, mushroom stuffed ravioli dinners, delicious ice cream puff pastry desserts left us joyfully satisfied! The pre dinner martinis were the best I've had in San Diego, mine were dirty with hand stuffed bleu cheese stuffed olives. The dinner wine, a rose, was perfect!
Looking forward to returning soon!

We had a feast of mussels with our friends. It was great to meet outdoors for a lovely meal. We had the house salad, mussels and the chocolate mousse. It was all served beautifully.

We had a delicious dinner at Bleu Boheme. While the noise level was a little too high - it was difficult to have a conversation - everything else was spot on. The wait staff was helpful, polite and professional. The food was well prepared and delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice night out.

Our server only half listened and missed more than a few of our requests. Having said that, it was busy and they could have used more staff (a sign of the times!) The restaurant is wonderfully cozy and the food is good. Overall a very nice evening.

Sat at the bar as usual 5.18.21. Make it to Bleu Boheme every two months or so on date night. Restaurant was busy on a Tuesday just before 6pm when we arrived but the Kensington area is an early crowd. After 7:15pm, it was quieter. Full bar lends itself to a great cocktail, then a beautiful segue to a beyond solid bottle of Crozes-Hermitage, red Bordeaux blend or white Côtes-du-Rhône. The Kronenbourg 1664 Lager on tap hits the spot as well. The bartender (and I should know his name by now-my bad) was busy but still on point, He remembered little previous visit details and was super-responsive/helpful. Consistently do the quarter loaf of bread service but regret not doing the half-loaf every time. Charcuterie board and the fries are awesome. . One minor quibble on the charcuterie board...two of the five meat offerings sliced a little too thick on this visit but haven't been in the past. Would still get it again in a heartbeat-perfect size-and plenty of the bread crisps on the side. Both pȧtés that come with the board hit the spot and there are a judicious amount of (pickled) vegetables. The pork chop entrée a showstopper as always and all the salads are well done. Upbeat/friendly staff and clean restrooms along with good spacing in the restaurant. Can't wait for the next visit.

The restaurant serves high quality food. The customer service was superb. I really can't complain. However, they have outdoor tables and each table does have a heating lamp. Personally, I wouldn't recommend it. It looks pretty cold.

We sat outside at a large table. Noise from the street was minimal. Server was very professional and friendly. Food was French traditional and very, very good. Wine selection and prices will accommodate all tastes. Plenty of parking in lot and street. Inside or out on the patio still makes Bleu Boheme one of the most romantic restaurants in San Diego.
