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.

Delicious food and amazing atmosphere. Very busy and has a nice buzz about it so would recommend reserving a table. The steak and frites were excellently cooked and they have very good decaf coffee which is rare.

Food is great - the oysters from Essex are amazing! Wine is on the expensive side. Service is exceptional. They've created a great atmosphere with tables outside. Would definitely recommend.

Have often walked past here but never been in - and seeing the place reopen after lockdown, I thought I must pay it a visit. Ended up visiting with a friend for lunch when the place was already fairly busy (though still with space) - distancing was sensible inside, with plenty of staff buzzing around to assist, though they were kept very busy. The really impressive thing was the food - I opted for something from the lunch set menu, so wasn't expecting anything that special, but was blown away by the taste and quality of the steak I had. It was truly delicious and is enough on its own to make me want to go back sometime soon. The lunch meal deal price was initially missed off my bill (check before you pay!) but the waiters were very apologetic about it and it certainly didn't put me off wanting to go back. The one thing I'd say is reserve a table outside if you want one, as they get snapped up incredibly quickly... sadly we were stuck inside this time round!

In these challenging times the tables were more spaced than usual, but this only enhanced the experience. There was a good atmosphere and the value of the set lunch, including a drink is exceptional.

We had sunday roast. We used to go to Cafe Monico which is under the same group but the roast beef is nicer much thicker and bigger. Compared to other places I have been, I think they should improve the quality to compete with other restaurants like Hawksmoor

Usually choose Cafe Boheme for lunch when I'm in Soho. French Bistro in style with corresponding food such as French onion soup, Toulouse Sausages, Steaks etc. Food is good quality, wine list is short but they have chosen the selection well. Staff are always excellent.

We wanted French food and this is exactly what we had in mind. Cafe Boheme was just a little crowded, a little dark and a little loud, but all the better to sit close and enjoy some wonderful food and drink. Everyone seemed to be having a great time and this place seems popular for dates or getting together with friends after work or before the show. We enjoyed the pate and escargot. The service was friendly and helpful. If you want to dine, and not just eat, this is a great place.

Cafe Boheme is a pleasure to visit - lively atmosphere, great service and very good food.
I loved my chicken salad for the starter and my husband's snails were yummy too. The cod was pipping hot but was lacking in flavour - no seasoning used at all. The steak was really good with generous amount of fries. Service was superb - very prompt and friendly. Also great offer for an early dinner - 2 courses for £15.

One of my favourite places in Central London. Waiters are always polite and helpful, food is good (although I don't like that they put mustard in beef tartare). Try their creme brulee, it's outstanding!
Even more than that I like the ambience. It's like the French restaurant in 60-s, with wooden floors, a bar in the middle and a big chandelier. Especially I like to come here in the evening, take a seat by the window and look at the people passing by.

Went there with two children and nan. The coq au vin was fantastique. La bavette perfectly cooked rare (and I m french). My 13 years old said the tarte tatin was the best she ever had. Quick service perfect location for Mary Poppins. Service very attentif. Just
Perfect.

It's a lively place, with live music and a good atmosphere. However the waitress accidentally spilt coca cola over my wife which took the shine off the evening. Her dress needs dry cleaning but no one seemed bothered. if you go, just wear old clothes that don't need washing.

Really disappointing brunch. Two members of our party ordered “bowls” of hot chocolate only to receive a small glass of like warm hot chocolate, spoke to the waiter and asked for new ones. When they arrived they were even colder, not hot at all. Even after asking a waiter he said he would sort it then proceeded to clear the table next to us. Third time after asking we received actual hot chocolate drinks. We also ordered 3 cups of tea at the start of the meal, none came with sugar and only one tea spoon. The final cup of tea was brought as they were clearing our plates away - absolutely ridiculous! Had to ask twice for table water which again was brought right at the end of our meal. Really disappointed in the service especially as it was a birthday celebration and friends had travelled from as far as Norfolk!
