Decided to go to Café La Boheme as we had a friend visiting and had heard from friends that it was good. We went at 7pm on a Saturday. The restaurant was busy and the host was prompt and attentive. When you first enter it is visually very appealing. Café La Boheme describes itself as being seductive and I would... More

I have been to this establishment for both dinner and Happy Hour. I especially enjoy the Happy Hour as the prices for drinks are reasonable. Unlike a lot of the restaurants and bars in the area one can comfortably sit and talk with friends in a cool dark lounge environment. However, since my last visit it seems as though the... More

The lounge offers $5 wine and well drinks but the best part is that they offer a lounge menu that is quite reasonable and can make a full meal. The restaurant portion is much more expensive. I had mussels in garlic one time and they were excellent. Three or four appetizers for 2 people makes a full meal.

Made reservations through Opentable and requested the table next to the fireplace. I received a confirmation phone call the day of. Walk up a small stone staircase and through the door where you enter the lounge area and hostess table. A pleasant greeting by two hosts and then walked to our fireplace table as requested. The decor was romantic, sexy,... More

I was there with a group of friends and ordered a vodka tonic. I came to discover that the bartender used kettle one. Although the drink was fine, I expected the $5 dollar happy hour cocktail and was surprised to be charged $13 for the drink. The only happy hour white wine was a sweet Riesling. So I ordered their...

I went with a group of two friends and myself. Had a living social coupon, and decided to try branching out last week. I ordered the salmon with risotto, my friend and I split an appetizer of steamed mussels in broth, which we dipped out bread in. I was full before the salmon arrived. The special was 2 glasses of...

We went to La Boheme not really knowing what to expect and we really loved it: the interior design, service, ambiance and above all food. Totally recommend this chic place after a day of sightseeing!

A really neat place to eat for the ambiance and the food of course. Staff is friendly and if you want cheap parking, park on the street instead of valet.

The restaurant itself and the service was excellent. The food was excellent, but I thought it was overpriced. Big prices for small portions. I just wish I had more of it to enjoy because the food really was good.
