Bohemian House captures the lighthearted and carefree essence of Bohemian culture. Exposed brick walls and wood timber, eclectic décor, warm earth tones and soft lighting set the backdrop for a comfortable and sociable dining experience.

Guest can expect to enjoy an original menu of approachable Bohemian-inspired fare with influences from the Czech Repulic, Germany and Austria. Acquainting Central Europe to the Central U.S., our culinary team takes a fresh approach to traditional favorites, utilizing the best of what's in season. Our menu presents a variety of dishes that are ideal for sharing, for dinner, weekday lunch, and weekend brunch.

To complement the cuisine, we present an eclectic selection of traditional European spirits and brews. Our cocktails are crafted with fresh, seasonal ingredients and feature house-infused spirits from time to time. Our carefully-curated, extensive selection of beer includes European and domestic artisan brewers.

    Worst meal I ever had. The food had no taste at all. We may as well have not eaten anything. And service was non-existent. We never even saw our server. There was not even a host to greet us. We have no idea how this restaurant stays in business.

    The worst restaurant in downtown Chicago! The menu has 4 entrees and ran out of two on a Saturday night at 8:30pm. We ordered a bunch of appetizers that had no taste and bland. The only entrees that were left on menu were horrible in taste. Wine selection was also extremely week. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this restaurant and needs a major make over for their menu otherwise it needs to SHUTT DOWN IMMEDIATELY.

    This restaurant has gone downhill. We used to love the food but service and food were very disappointing this time. They ran out of the dish that several of us ordered (out of a very limited selection) and just threw down new menus and asked us to choose something else. Food took forever despite us being seated right by the kitchen. There were no options on the menu for one of my friends who is vegetarian and the waiter was not helpful in providing suggestions. Food was lukewarm when it arrived.

    Ultimately we had a fine experience, but the evening had a rough start. I booked a specific day because an email from the restaurant’s mailing list promised a special Bohemia menu that night. (I am of Bohemian descent.) When we arrived we realized that special menu had been changed to the following night and we learned the correction had been made on the website but no corrected email had been sent. The Chef came to our table and offered us the entree planned for the next night. We ordered it and it was delicious. Bottom line: keep your chef but fire your communications people!

    Please return the previous chef! Food was awful. Menu was changed and reduced and now it is not European/German kitchen. We were so disappointed. Last time visited November 2017 and experience was very positive but not this time. As previous reviewers said I agree food is mediocre. Only one positive moment-beer was fresh.

    The food was very good and the server was pleasant and efficient. The busser kind of hovered and took one plate before we were both finished. Good beer list. The menu is limited and expensive 4 places serving this food. The dumplings are small and not light. Cucumber salad was excellent. A pleasant experience overall.

    I don’t really know what has happened since the new executive chef has taken over. All of the food has become self-consciously fancy, but it lacks all of the quality and form that would make it any good. Universally, everything tastes worse than it did before the changeover. Who pre-cuts sausage and then places a dollop of sour cream on each medallion, situated around chucks of cold Gouda and lukewarm sauerkraut? The cold cream cools the sausage and makes the whole thing gross to eat. It doesn’t even make sense conceptually: would you pre-slice a filet mignon? Some foods you can assume your customer knows how to navigate. The appetizers too were either flavorless as compared to the old version, or simply shallow and tasteless. I’m extremely shocked that something so good could fall so fast.

    The restaurant had very interesting menu items. The roasted beet and goat cheese salad was superb. The only negative was that the menu was rather limited in choices for entrees, making it harder for a less adventurous diner to find something to choose.

    The new menu that they call more accessible, is very disappointing. The restaurant became generic with the boring beet salad, tomato soup and slider to offer. The authentic Hungarian langos became Slovakian as two small portions with tomato sauce and the chicken paprikas has now a smokey flavor. I atmosphere is still cool, but I used to come here for the delicious and unique food. Not anymore.

    My big issue with BoHo is that it's really hard to eat heavy food in an environment that's dark and overly loud. I'd go more often if they turned down the music and brought up the lights a bit. No one should have to use a flashlight to read a menu in a restaurant, that is the litmus test for TOO DARK. Also, the portions are really too big - the small plates need to be smaller and less pricey.
