    The service was amazing, the ambiance was equally great. The drinks were fantastic as well. Our food was good but was lacking that zap and wow that was going on with the great experience we were having. Will try again.

    Blue Boheme is an amazing restaurant. The food and service is exceptional. My only comment is that the menu is overpriced. Not a place to visit everyday but on special ocassions because of this reason.

    The experience was one that me and my table enjoyed very much. The food was amazing and the ambiance was very delightful. I recommend the brussel sprouts with a croc garson any night for a good dinner and a night to remember.

    The ambiance at Bleu Boheme is very inviting, it’s dimly lit with candles and the servers are all friendly and attentive. They also gave me a little birthday card and chocolate mousse for my bday without me even asking (shows that they really pay attention to detail, especially in your reservation). The food is amazing!! We got les fromages to try out the cheeses, Steak Frites filet mignon, and the Ravioli Maisons. It was our first time trying french cuisine and it blew our expectations out of the water. It tasted so fresh yet comforting. Definitely coming back here again. :)

    Our meal at Bleu Boheme was something of a mixed bag. We started with a couple of cocktails both of which were quite good. We had escargot and charcuterie appetizers, which were both good, though it was a bit difficult to discern some differences in a few of the meats. We did a Pork entree and Steak Frites entree. Pork was very good, but the steak was not very flavorful and the frites were cold. We suspect it was prepared first and sat around while the Pork was then prepared. To their credit, when we pointed this out they took the steak off the bill. Service was very nice and we did not feel any pressure to eat and run. Ambience was nice, especially after the sun set - lighting was mainly by actual candles.

    There was a party near us that was basically shouting at each other excitedly the whole time. Based on the romantic French vibe of the place, I wish a staff member would have asked them to quiet down. The food was just ok and it took forever to come out. Probably the worst French onion soup I’ve had a restaurant, super bummed about it. Didn’t even taste like they used beef broth or salt, really weird and kinda bland. My mussels were decent but I prefer the ones at Bo Beau, again, just a bit under seasoned overall. My wife had the croque sandwich and she said she liked it well enough but wouldn’t get it again. I’d wanted to come here for years! The French onion soup was so disappointing I don’t think I’ll be back, as that’s one of my favorite things to get when it’s offered.

    Typical problem with a lot of restaurants nowadays, either they’re way understaffed or the service is lousy. It sure which one. Also orders beef Bourguignon, which was just a beef short rib covered in sauce, not real beef bourgeois. I’ve been here before and liked the place but it was a real disappointment this time
