Decided to check for a last minute Thanksgiving Day reservation for us since, well, COVID. They had one left and we snagged it. We were seated at a cute table for two (outdoors of course) with a small heater on table, which we actually didn’t need, but nice touch. We were presented with menus for the prix fixe options(choice of starter, entree and dessert). We both started with the pumpkin martini, yum!!! We then ordered the pumpkin soup and a salad. Both were great! For our entrees I had mushroom raviolis and he had salmon. They were both great, actually the raviolis were amazing! For dessert we had the bread pudding and gingerbread cake. We decided the bread pudding was the winner. Our server, Leo, was fantastic and was so appreciative of the patronage. Wine list was excellent. We were even presented with a bottle of Beujalois Neuvo 2020 to take home! What a nice surprise. The price is on the higher end (especially the prix fix) but worth it. Highly recommend this charming restaurant, even in a pandemic.

La comida es muy sabrosa y en porciones generosas, el servicio amable y rápido. La relación calidad precio es excelente. El interior del establecimiento es muy acogedor, pero debido a la actual situación solo nos pueden atender en la terraza.

Went here for my wife’s birthday. Had a fantastic time! They have a huge wine selection and a great ambiance. Since it was a weekday, it was very quiet but I imagine it’s more buzzing during the weekends. We got the seafood appetizer and the duck confit. Both were cooked to perfection and very flavorful. The server clearly read my notes and brought in a small mousse with a lit candle at the end of dinner for my wife. Overall had a great experience and would definitely come back!

We've been to Bleu Boheme several times especially for special occasions and have always had a great meal with outstanding service. This time was different. The service was OK. Always find it interesting when a waitperson comes to your table at the end of the meal and asks, "Is everything alright?" referring to the food. Also she brought us bread plates, but no bread. The salmon was just average. Wouldn't order it again. Skipped desert altogether. We'll go back to give them another chance.

Frankly, it is not worth the effort to try anywhere else. Always enjoyed by the flavors of anything I have ordered at BB. Wither it’s a cheese board and some soup or a full dinner, or happy hour

We've been coming here off and on for several years. At one time, it was among our favorites. We thought there was a slight step-off over the past couple of years but decided to give the restaurant another try recently.

The recent visit was quite good. It was Halloween, so the staff was dressed up a bit, but the food and service did not disappoint. This was very good French bistro food. It's good to see that the restaurant is again doing well.

We went to Blue Boheme for my husband’s birthday. They greeted us and wished him a Happy Birthday. We were sitting outside and they let us sit at a table closer to the heater. Everything was fantastic. We had the grand charcuterie board with meat and cheese. We split is 4 ways and that could have been our meal! Three of us had mussels fixed different ways and one had boeuf bourguignon . All the food was spectacular. The mussels were fresh with a great consistency and more than any of us could eat! They let us split a chocolate martini and we split a creme brûlée. Again fantastic. The creme brûlée was light and had a perfectly carmelized top. The service was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant

Asked to be sat away from a bathroom and ended up getting the seat next to the entrance. Both party members sat underneath an air vent with the AC blasting. Hostess did not seem welcoming or happy to be working, avoided asking her for anything because she seemed/was unapproachable/rude.

Server was happy and energetic, didn’t show up the last half of the service. I had to physically get up and ask for a check.

Food took about an hour to be served, restaurant was NOT busy when we went in at six. Ended up staying way later than expected.

Giovanni was the only person who was good from start to finish.

The food is consistently very good at Bleu Boheme. The service is always very good, although these days, with reduced staff, we have noticed a slightly longer delay, but nothing to be overly concerned with.

Under normal non-COVID circumstances, the restaurant is usually packed full, and when it is, it gets very loud inside.

During these challenging times, and with limited seating capacity, the noise level inside is very low, making an otherwise good dining experience, even better.

They have expanded their outdoor dining area, so when we get a nice warm evening, dinner outside at Bleu Boheme is the place to be.

The wine selection is very good, and the craft cocktails are simply great - you absolutely MUST try a Basil Martini!

Our server Leo was nothing short of amazing, really awesome service by him. We celebrated our one year. I recommend going earlier as kitchen closes earlier than the restaurant itself. Great wine selection!

We decided to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary by a rare trip out to a restaurant. We were craving French food after watching Emilie in Paris and settled on Bleu Boheme, which had outdoor seating and good separation of tables. We began with the Moules Frites Mariniere to share then I had the Boeuf Bourguignon and my husband the Confit de Canard, both of which were well prepared, flavored beautifully and served hot. But, for us, the star was the Moules, which were fresh and steamed in a beautiful and delicious broth (which was so delicious we decided to take the remains home for a snack over some pasta). Overall, the service was delightful and we enjoyed our meals very much.
