“Very good meat, but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Bohemia leaves me always with mixed feelings. The place is expensive, loud, always packed and with rather average service. However, the food (especially the meat) is really good and cocktails are decent. But I would go have diner on Sunday evening, when it is usually not packed.

“Busy, non existent service and still popular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Nice place and seems to be popular place. Service is almost non existent though, but I guess it is tough for 1 waitress to serve everyone there. Delicious cakes.
To avoid complicated situation to find a table, reservation before you go could be a good option.

“Good food .. TERRIBLE service ... not cheap”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

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.

“We loved it........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

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.

“Very nice place but eat in another place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

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.
