Did not enjoy the experience both times I have been here, staff were not helpful and my steak was very grizzly and fatty. Helpful tip, the chef does not like complaints!

Staying at the Granville Hotel for a couple of nights we stumbled across La Boheme, which is just around the corner. The food was stunning, the wine par excellence and the service was just perfect. We both ate off the Market Menu and we could not have been more pleased. I have classified it as Mid-range in the price section... More

Yes it it is all that with first class service. The four of us that dined last week have been around the block in eating out and... More

What a lucky find. I have eaten in over 5000 restaurants as I worked in export and can honestly say this was in the top 10. Unusual starter - Crème brulee crab meat - quite delicious Unusual main course - baked salmon in gazpacho. Have never had them together - but it works so well. The gazpacho isn't cold (... More

Went here a few weeks ago. Reviews were good but our experience was poor. Service was poor. We had no designated waiter and ended up with a mix and there was no continuity. Ordered still water three times before we got it. Would have presumed water came as part of the table setting. Food was poor. Salt must be the... More

Hotel Concierge couldn't get a reservation. It was a bank holiday weekend. We walked in about 5:30 to see if they could take us and yes they could accommodate us. Service was very good and the food was very fresh and lived up toothy standards of other reviewers. Would go back in a minute.

We had a 'latish' reservation for 9pm on saturday night accompanied by my wife,daughter, sister and my sisters husband. The entrance alone was so impressive as we went down these beautiful steps below street level to a vaulted basement that was absolutely buzzing with atmosphere and tantalizing aromas of the heavenly dishes we were to be treated to later.
