Food was salty, and the kids Mac n cheese was salty and loaded with black pepper which was at some point disturbing for us adults.
Onion soup and steak exceeded expectations.
Our server was awesome!

Excellent menu. The food is creative without being contrived or exaggerated. Many restaurants completely ignore the noise level, making it difficult or impossible to carry on a conversation. Here we were able to talk which is for me a very significant part of the pleasure of a good meal. We avoid restaurants with high noise levels no matter how good the food. Also, there is parking in the rear.

Our experience at Bleu Boheme started with a card wishing us a Happy Anniversary which was signed and then placed on the table. The little touches continued from there. The candlelight on the table was from tall candles which back-lit the room bouncing off the brick walls. The soup was divine as was the salad. The beef bourguignon was superb with a delightful flavor and, oh so tender meet. The coquilles San Jacques was prepared perfectly as well. We were brought a scoop of chocolate mousee as a complimentary dessert to celebrate. It was perfect: light and just the right amount of sweetness. We will be back!

We had opted for the set menu. The portions are slightly smaller than ordering individually but it was still more than enough food. Everything was delicious. I had the butter lettuce salad and would definitely recommend it! The variety of flavors was wonderful! I order salmon as main course which was served over mixed vegetables- all vey tasty. Desert east a coconut mango bread pudding, also very good. Look forward to going back. Oh and free parking in the bank lot after six.

Celebrated 2 of my BFF bdays. This place is always an oldie, but a goodie for us. My girls and I love the mussels. Great place to dine and hang out for hours, except it is very pricey. One appetizer, 3 mussel entrees, 2 fish dishes and dessert cost over $300!

this is a great French restaurant. the wine list is very extensive and has many, many French wines to select from as well as California wines. The food was amazing, I had never had many of the items on the menu but everything i ordered was beyond my expectations. The server was very knowledgable in the food as well as the wines. The restaurants ambiance is amazing, it is very quiet and cozy, perfect for a date or just a late night excellent meal with that someone special. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Lost its charm. Food is overseasoned, overbearing, and underwhelming. Despite a reservation we were seated at the worst possible table with many others available. Waitstaff pounces on you to order drinks repeatedly while you're studying the menu and determining your dining direction which affects your wine pairing. What used to be enjoyable and special has become stuffy and pretentious. Menu has not changed in 2 years, it seems they've stopped trying. We're ready to look elsewhere for quality French cuisine served with finesse and attention, and not just an overblown reputation that has grown stale. This used to be our favorite, very disappointed.

The food was good but not great. My Steak frites, NY steak was undercooked and the fries were not great either. After eating at Bleu Boheme many times over the years, I think there are much better French restaurants in San Diego.

First timers here. I had the duck confit, my wife had scallops and Mom had the special which was filet mignon. We’ve never been to France so I cannot speak to the authenticity of the dishes but I thought the duck and scallops were very delicious. We will definitely return and hopefully find a seat at the bar and order small plates. They also had a great sazerac.

We went for Valentine's Day. The full menu was not available, that was disappointing. The Valentine's menu was very nice, and the rack of lamb and New York strip was excellent. I didn't like the fact that you were not informed that the gratituity was included in the meal price, but the credit card receipt had a space for a tip.

I love this restaurant. My wife and I have only dined here twice in two years, and our experiences both times have been home runs. We began with Sazeracs, the famous and potent New Orleans cocktails featuring rye and absinthe, and an provencal appetizer of pasta with basil, beans, and tomatoes. Just enough to whet our appetites for our main dishes of salmon--perfect temperature and degree of doneness--and duck confit with lentils. The duck's crispy skin worked beautifully with the moist thigh flesh. With those main plates we drank a half bottle of Chateuneuf du Pape. For a very satisfying ending, we shared a dessert of three-cheese cheesecake with a cooked fruit topping and double espresso. The welcoming and attentive staff have made this restaurant a "regular" when we migrate south for the winter.
