I have no complaints about staff, although service quite slow, however it was a busy night. House Sauvignon excellent. Food below Little Chef standard and the mains were cold upon arrival. My Bavette resembled roadkill and was extremely poor. I am not being rude or unkind, merely describing accurately my experience, i always prefer to be positive.

So changed from pre pandemic! Poorer menu, very average food, very slow service, but still a big price. Very disappointing and won’t be going again. Reflects very badly in soho house!

The kitchen got my main wrong after the waiter specified the details. Bless the waiter once we realised he did offer to have it remade but by then I was too hungry!

It was a really disappointing experience. We were seated at a very dark table and asked to move to a different one but a waiter said it was for 4 people - 5 minutes later he sat a table of 4 there. Food was cold and bad. Will NOT be returning.

I was looking forward to lunch here. Sadly, it was if all the staff had just started that day. Service was uncoordinated. Took ages to be served and it wasn’t busy. The best bit was the live music that started just before our departure. This place could be really good and wouldn’t take much to achieve it!

It was great to visit Cafe Boheme since it's refurb. The atmosphere was great. But the food was very basic and looked like it had been thrown on the plate. The service was lovely , but the food let's the establishment down

The service was quick and professional. We arrived early and were accommodated, and the food was great as always. It was a Saturday so a bit busy, but as expected. It was very loud and a bit hard to talk to each other, but again that is part of the atmosphere!

We had the moules and bavette steak - both were delicious.

Really fun, lively afternoon here! Authentic tasty food with French staff & live music! Loved it. Pleasantly surprised as it’s so central definitely doesn’t feel gimmicky.

Was highly recommended to go here by a friend for lunch on our trip to London. I was underwhelmed by the whole experience. Food was nothing special, service staff seemed rushed, only good bit was the capacino. I probably will not go back again

Good, basic French food, that was very well cooked. I felt sorry for the waitress. She was running around like crazy to cover her tables. She was excellent, but just too many tables to wait at a very busy time.

The staff working here were lovely, it was slightly slow but under stable as it was very busy. Didn’t mind this either as the staff were so nice and friendly .
Food was great. Wine by the bottle a bit expensive .
Only negative was it was incredibly loud in there, had to almost shout to hear each other .
Overall, food great, staff great.

Pre-theatre dining at 6pm. The restaurant was not busy. Two mistakes were made with the order, firstly the side vegetables were forgotten and then a salad was brought out. There are obviously communication issues between the waitress who took the order and the kitchen/waiter who brought it.
The quality of the food was OK but nothing to write home about. I (unusually) had a burger but the menu description does not tell you exactly what it contains so if you don't want the full monty containing ketchup and mayonnaise etc I suggest you specify. The chocolate fondant was good.
It is dark for reading the menu but that's what the torch on a smart phone is for.
