Despite being the only people in the restaurant the service was still less than tentative. We presumed that the 2 course early bird was also on all night and even though the server watched us order off the early bird she failed to advise us it was only for the 3 course. Over all the food was old fashioned although... More

Dear Ridinboots, With regards to your recent review on Tripadvisor, I would normally say thank you - even if it is negative - as we can always learn from positive and negative criticism. But - and this is where I must draw the line, when my staff who are wonderfully polite, professional, courteous, knowledgeable and go beyond the call of... More

I have visited La Boheme many times and it is always exceptional. The location is great- basement setting with great ambience. The service is faultless and the food is consistently excellent.

Waterford is a beautiful city in Ireland and, after Waterford Crystal, La Boheme is the reason that you should be visiting. The restaurant is centrally located in the pedestrian shopping area, within walking distance of any hotel. The restaurant itself is indescribably beautiful. You walk down a flight of stairs and the door opens to a large cavernous space, with... More

Had an absolutely delicious meal here over the bank holiday. It is quite expensive but you get what you pay for. Crab salad for starter was delicious followed by generous portion of monkfish for main.

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
