Full to the brim with energy, chat and all kinds of people with a common purpose to enjoy the night and their friends. Food is the decent brasserie kind, we rarely eat burgers but that's what we had and thoroughly enjoyed them. The staff were welcoming and as attentive as they needed to be and great at catching the orders despite the noise. We loved it, next time we will test the brunch.

Cafe boheme is a stalwart of soho, and I used to go a lot a few years ago. Food is still classic french and well done. Sadly the service is pretty slow, and unhelpful.

The food isn't good, all very meh. The atmosphere is beautiful but go for a drink, not dinner. Service was pretty bad and the manager had to step in to answer questions, reconfirm drinks orders, get our bill and reorder something that had been forgotten.

The food was very good, although I would have liked slightly bigger portions - especially for the starter. My wife found it a little too noisy, but I thought it was reasonable for 10pm on a Saturday evening in the middle of London.
The staff were very good.

Cold french toast and even colder fruit. It wasn't busy either, I was the only guest. Maybe it's meant to be served that way but I've always had it hot. Wish I'd gone in the evening when it's much busier as I imagine the atmosphere is great. Lovely friendly staff.

Such a lovely experience for my partner’s 30th birthday. Beautifully low lit tables, delicious drinks and nice background music that perfectly complemented the atmosphere.

One of my favourite places to eat in Soho but I was sadly disappointed this time. The service was almost non existent and the food arrived cold and was taken back and reheated which resulted in poor quality food.

I met a wonderful friend in London for a catch up and to enjoy a little festive cheer.
First visit to Cafe Boheme but certainly not my last.
What an amazing place and definitely has the Parisian atmosphere, which I miss.
The evening spent here was just like being in back in Paris again, great atmosphere as soon as you enter with live music and a great ambiance.
Greeted by friendly staff who were all smiling (makes a huge difference) and the food excellent.
I would thoroughly recommend the ‘Boheme Spritz’ cocktail which was the best I have ever tasted!
Bon a petit x

One of the tastiest steaks I've had in a long time! Great venue and atmosphere. A bit slow on getting additional drinks and puddings but that's my only mild criticism. Overall a great experience

Food was decent but nothing exceptional to note. Service was great but the venue is incredibly dark and with seating found in various nooks and corners, the particular cove of four tables we were in was particularly loud due to who we were seated next to. No fault of the restaurant but something to note dependent on where you’re seated.

This is my daughter’s favourite restaurant so it was a pre-Christmas late lunch. I love the limited menu which never changes. Wines are good. It was busy but service was attentive. My only gripe was the live music which was far too loud so conversation was shouting even though we were in the first room of the restaurant. It’s too intrusive and it was relief when it stopped fir a while. Otherwise another lovely experience.

We love Cafe Boheme - great for outdoor seating looking out and feeling the vibrant SoHo. Yet the escargots and the moules marinieres wasn’t tasty and they didnt provide any dishes for the empty moules nor the right fork for the escargots. Service was great and the ambience was lovely as always.

Staff rushed off their feet. Very rowdy table close to us who were annoying everyone else around them. Staff should have told them to whiten down and they didn’t. Very disappointing night out.
