    I always enjoy the food and ambience here at Bleu Boheme! It can get noisy in the main dining room, but it adds to the lively atmosphere! Service is always wonderful! One of my “go-to” restaurants in San Diego.

    Our Main Server was Gina and she was amazing! But she had lots of “help’ from so many others. We sat outside (it is San Diego!) and it was lovely! Beautiful birthday celebration. Thank you.

    Few restaurants can transport you to France....inside felt like a cosy bistro and continued with lots of traditional French dishes w flare. The food was way more delicious than I had expected, as I have learned that most French wannabe restaurants are just French in name and menu but fall flat on delivery....haven't been to Paris or France in many years and I was swept away w each bite. I can't wait to go back on our next vacation, worth the drive from La Jolla!!

    This has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. My most recent visit reversed all that. They were understaffed and the service was terrible. On top of that, the food was bland. The mussels were remarkably lackluster, even though they have always been good, the mushroom ravioli but could not taste the mushrooms...only spinach and the duck was overcooked and slightly dry. Finally, one of my party does not drink alcohol and asked if they had non-alcoholic wine. THey did not and we asked if we could bring in a bottle, they added $20 corkage fee and did not notify us that there would be a charge. All-in-all, it was an incredibly disappointing evening out and I am crestfallen that my formerly favorite restaurant is no longer a place I would like to go.

    French rose was nice. The lobster crepe and gnocchi were just ok. I love French food and was really disappointed. The bread was artisan and heavy for French bread. I wasn’t impressed and most likely will not return.

    We went to this place on the positive reviews I saw on Yelp. We were not disappointed- the entire meal was so enjoyable that we would go back next time We are in San Diego. Jorge was a terrific waiter - quick service, friendly and responsive to our questions. We had the mussels as a appetizer - wonderful flavor with a great sauce for dipping with the bread. The hanger steak was cooked to perfection. Salmon was terrific in the light cream sauce. We topped off the meal with the brioche aux pommes - delish

    There were 4 of us for dinner. We sat outside which was very pleasant. Nika was our server. She was excellent: her recommendations were spot on (the burrata appetizer and the gingerbread dessert were both excellent) and we were not rushed. We enjoyed our appetizers: the burrata salad and the onion tart. Our entrees were the mussels, the scallops and the pork chop. We were all very happy with our choices. We brought 2 bottles of wine, corkage fee was $20 per bottle which is not bad. There is parking behind the restaurant. This is a neighborhood gem.

    We ate outside on the patio, and the street noises of cars was a bit distracting. The food was good, especially the fromages (cheese board) appetizer which was really good. The service was friendly but spotty and could have been more attentive. They recognized our anniversary, and that was nice.
