I live quite close to Bohemia, and sometimes meet friends there for brunch since ... it's close-by.

Every single time I went there, I came out with the same feelings:
- I love the food, in particular their fenchel & yozu salad and their steaks ... really great!
- The service is one of the worst that I experienced in Zürich ... and Zürich is already well known for its terrible service
- It's really not cheap. I would say that it's hard to have a normal dinner for less than 70 CHF. Zürich is expensive, everybody knows it, but given the poor service the bill hurts a bit

My advice: If you're travelling to Zurich and have no immediate need to go to Bohemia, then don't. There are lots of other places where you can eat just as well, pay just as much, and get an almost-normal service.

You have to try the steaks. The quality of the meat was excellent. The restaurant is clean and seems to attract many nationalities. The staff spoke some English and were very helpful without been in your face......attentive but in an unobtrusive way. Nice just for a drink or dinner too. This was one of my favourite places to eat in Zurich.

The atmosphere is great as well as the drinks, but do yourself a favor, eat in another place.
It is like they don't care what they cook, the service is terrible, up to a sandwich they are able to succeed . The prices for the meat you receive is like they serve it with gold sauce.
I will suggest to the owner to change the chef or to serve only drinks.

Ever since living in Zuerich we have tested many place where you can go for brunch/breakfast. Fornus Bohemia is by far the best. Great choices, from eggs, to Bagels, to Croissant, you name it they serve it. Food is nicely presented, tastes yammi, portions are seizeable and the waiters very friendly. The atmosphere is trendy, hip and easy going. We keep coming back to this place, just as a couple, with friends or with kids. We love it. Highly recommended.
You need to book though well in advance (can easily be done via Internet) to secure yourself a table, the place is hip and alwys booked.
Enjoy!

The restaurant has a lively nice atmosphere. Due to the crowdedness it has a lively atmosphere that feels great. The service is ok but nothing more than that. For the meat the cooking was not asked and came to rear. The food taken was good but very very basic. So meat and a separate sauce and that's it. One side dish comes with it and French fries is one of them..... Vegetable is for 7,5 more. Food was good but value for money is far off.
