Wow! We went to La Boheme with several of our closest friends. It was a very special evening and as soon as we stepped in the door we knew we had chosen wisely! The atomosphere was welcoming and the decor warm and tasteful- clearly the details were important. I would recommend starting with any of the choices, but of course... More

We went to this restaurant as a group of 9, and unfortunately the evening fell far below everyones expectations. One member of our party constructed an email, to provide the restaurant with constructive feedback in a discreet manner, however the restaurants response was extremely defensive and rude.

Dear Sarah_Pio, Whilst we do appreciate feedback on a dining experience in our restaurant, to describe yours as poor in every way and to highly recommend it being avoided is going far beyond necessary. There were small details of your dining experience which did not go 100% to plan, but none of this was done on purpose and certainly does... More

My wife and I dined together to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We started with a glass of prosecco in the cosy bar area and continued with dishes from the market menu. All of the food was excellent in taste and presentation. The service was efficient and polite. The basement location and ambience also make for a wonderful dining experience.

Had a nice night out here with one of my friends. The food was beautiful, as was the wine. Only downside was we were put into what felt like a back room, and had to ask for a blow heater as I couldn't take off my coat.

Dear Lola1962, So delighted you enjoyed "beautiful food" and wine in La Boheme recently. The back room which you speak of, is very much part of the entire restaurant called our Crystal Room. It is mostly set for tables of 2 and it is where we choose to seat two-tops as it is a more intimate and cozy area. Our... More

Went here last friday with my husband. We have been before but many years ago. The welcome was good, we were shown to our seats and given menus. We ordered from market menu - €35 pp for 3 courses.

We went here for a treat and some father and daughter bonding. The welcome was fabulous and we felt like VIP’s throughout. The restaurant setting is stunning, beautifully laid tables with real cloth napkins and napkin holders pretty much what you would expect from a 5 star restaurant with a lovely ambiance. I went for the crab salad which was... More

This is one of Waterford’s most elegant restaurants, situated in the basement/cellar of the Waterford Chamber of Commerce building in George’s Street.
