I love this place but this time the service was a bit slow, had to ask to order drinks and ask to order food. Will go back as I love the place but a bit of a shame it wasn’t to the normal standard!

I have been going to Cafe Boheme on and off since it first opened in the early nineties, and keep going back. The staff used to be a lot friendlier but one of them told me they where now trained to be more formal - so it can feel like your being served by androids at times. None the less the Maitre D was very helpful and we felt well attended to. I like this place because of its location, when you sit outside, like we did last Wednesday you can soak up some of the vibrant street culture which still oxygenates Old Compton St. The menu offers a well honed choice of authentic French Brasserie style classics so if that's what you've come for - you won't be disappointed. The prixfix and formule options offer exceptional value both in terms of the quality and price. Well worth a visit if you've not been before. Give it a try.

The team were welcoming, friendly and attentive - and, yes, in their masks and/or face shields. The croque monsieur was ridiculously good and the ciders chilled. And we managed to snaffle up one of the outside tables on the street itself (after 5pm) for a delightful evening.

We ended up paying more for the set menu! Our waiter didn’t bother telling us! with EOHO ordering dishes individually off a la carte is cheaper.

Such a nice atmosphere! I love the interior, the music and of course the food.
Definitely try the mussels - these were delicious! Also one of the best salmon I’ve tried in London- perfectly juicy and flaky with a crispy skin. The portions are huge, good for sharing.
I would definitely come back for brunch.

I love this Soho institution. The offer is simple - French inspired familiar food, done very well, reasonable pricing, great cocktails and wine list, great Soho vibe and atmosphere, and great staff. My Soho "local".

Been coming here regularly since it opened, decades ago, and very happy to see Cafe Boheme re-open after the lockdown. It's more about the ambience and friendliness than the food, though the food is plenty good enough. Very quiet inside when we went, with most of the customers on the street tables outside right now. There was more space between the tables inside due to the spacing rules, but they somehow managed to keep the old feel.

Some places haven't really pulled off how to function socially since the big re-opening, but no such problems here. Had a good time as usual.

Did the discount £10.50 for a plats and glass of wine or beer. I think it was a very good deal. I had moules marinier and chips which were delicious. I would go back again. Our waitress was super efficient and really friendly. Great atmosphere in the restaurant too

Cafe Boheme is something quite special for me, I’ve been visiting for 2 years now and it was something I had only stumbled upon with a friend.

We dined on Wednesday eve to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and just had simply the best time ever!

My partner had the crudités and I had the Escargot! So tasty and perfect, followed by the Steak & Veggie Burger (which my partner said was the best)!

We had excellent service all evening, cannot wait to be back.

Thank you all!

I am really glad to find out this restaurant in London. Most french restaurants here do not feel like french. I love the onion soup and tartar. Some escargots were not seasoned properly but itself was good. It was quite crowded but anyway I am willing to go there again for the dinner.

Overall, it was good.
Service let it down, as the waiter mixed up the main order, everything felt very rushed, even though the restaurant was not that empty.
It felt like we were bothering the waiter if we asked for anything

Otherwise, the food was good. In particular, the french toast is worth recommending

One of my old times favorite places. Not much has changed over the years, the menu is the same with French classics, nice wine list. The service was a bit chaotic and I think they need to take a bit more care on the hygiene and wiping the tables more often.
