I hade not been to Boehmer before but had heard the name many times. So glad a friend recommended we get together with 6 friends for dinner. The food and service were fabulous, and the restaurant had a great "busy" vibe! I will return again soon!
First time here: there were 4 of us, with three hanger steaks expertly cooked, and a lobster-scallop dish that hit all the right notes. Grilled calamari as a starter was very tender in a nice heirloom tomato sauce with a just a little spice: all excellent. No dessert. Decor is modern/wood/hip/antler chandelier/Ossington/you-know-what-I-mean. The wine list has some very nice wines, some ok-ish wines, some overpriced, some good bang-for-the-buck (loonie?) ones, but all presented in complete random order. The new sommelier said he would fix this. We will definitely come back to verify that promise!
This is a good place for a casual to upscale dinner, not super upscale, but pretty good. The service was friendly and competent. All our items were quite tasty. Prices were "average". I think the wine list is a bit overpriced, that's the only nudge I'd give them.
We brought out of town clients (restaurant executives from Dallas) and had a great evening. They were really impressed. Really good food and service in a beautiful room. The room was busy, but we were able to have a conversation.
They have an amazing wine list!!! The lobster was delicious also.. No complaints at all.
Lovely room, well appointed and well lit. Great first impression. Menu compact and interesting, lots of good choices. Food was ver good. Service was engaging up to the point where it hit a snag (item ordered, did not arrive). The minor glitch was met with indifference, recovery not good to the point where the overall experience suffered. Too bad.
I've been to Boehmer twice for dinner, both nights were great! Their oysters are definitely worth a try here if you're a fan. Their service was slightly on the slow side, but the food was delicious and totally worth the wait. Make sure to reserve as it gets busy esp. on Friday and Saturday nights.
The 3-item choice from the Harvest Menu is a great appetizer (with the oysters!). Try the smoked salmon. For entrees I tried the pan seared arctic char the first time and the chicken fricassee the second time. My fiance had the hangar steak the first time and the rack of lamb the second time. All of those were super delicious!
IF you didn't splurge enough already, they have a great "light" cheesecake that hits the spot to finish off the meal :)
Even though a crowed evening, table was ready on time. Excellent service, great food and decor.
Good things: appetizers were excellent, great atmosphere, beautiful room
Not so good things: service was not great, mains were not worth prices
Was impressed with our server and the pork ribs. Was far from pleased with the lobster mac and cheese and the scallops. Not sure if everyone in the kitchen is a smoker (not saying that's awful by any means) but everything tasted like it was seasoned by a person with lacking tastebuds. Scallop main was so salty I couldn't eat more than 2. Everything was too salty and too bland other than the rublets. Wine was a great choice recommended by the server, and the room was nice and open rather than feeling cramped. Really ugly and uncomfortable chairs that did not go with the rest of the decor. Im in the industry and am never overly critical, but seriously understand the importance of seasoning. Overall, good minus the food.
