It was really loud. And we felt a little cramped in as the restaurant puts tables close together. Service was excellent. Starters good. Mains were average and second choice as first choice not available. Booked through open table but we had to ask to be moved to the restaurant which I found perplexing. One time experience but good people.

I appreciate you want to create ambiance with the level of lighting but when one has to pick up the table candle in order to read the menu you may have gone a tad too far!!

The service is unbelievably bad - almost felt like performance art. The food is a hard fine - there are far nicer places in a stones throw from here.

The service was horrible. There were two waitresses for the whole place and they messed up the order, the bill reflected the mistake which we would’ve been overcharged for and thankfully I caught it. It took forever to even get the bill in the first place.

Arriving at 20.00 to find the only two restrooms for women without light and toilet paper is disturbing. When the waiters were told they said the new about it and apologized.
The restaurant is a Soho House establishment but the staff new little about the member ship credit, expiring yesterday

Excellent all round - went for Sunday brunch and it wasn't too busy but there was a nice atmosphere and the décor was lovely. Staff were friendly and efficient. There was a great choice of different breakfast/brunch/lunch dishes and the food was delicious. It would have been good if the waiting staff had mentioned when asking if I wanted toast with my omelette that there would be an extra charge for that, but can't blame them for upselling a bit after the last 18 months. I will definitely remember it for future trips to London.

Service was very slow and at times surly- which was a shame but we had come for the outdoors Soho vibe and the street scene made up for that. I wouldn't hurry back to be served indoors- which is saddening as I used to be a very regular visitor

Our waitress was lovely but the lady who sat us along with a few of the staff were more interested in saying hello to people they knew on the street, no welcome and a lack of basic customer service skills. Seating was hectic. Thankfully waitress and food were good.

Compact menu offers French bistro type meals and small plates like muscles and fry’s well cooked, fresh and very tasty. Atmosphere is excellent and relaxed in the heart of vibrant Soho. My favourite place for relaxed afternoon drinks and a late lunch, usually with live music wafting through the background chatte.

The staff members were welcoming, friendly and helpful.
The service was very good. The food was great.
At times, the piano music was too loud for me.
Otherwise, we had a wonderful time.
Thank you all.

The food was great the service wonderful and the place does put you in mind of being in a Parisian Bistro - we really did feel transported away. It always appearers busy and can feel crowded but this adds to the buzz.

Post COVID my ears might be more sensitive as I don’t recall it being as so loud. It’s not the music (I don’t think there was any) but the cacophony of voices made having a conversation hard. The might want to think about some fabric to soften the acoustics. Other than that - great

Used to love this place.
Last night we were suddenly told to vacate our table after 2 and three quarter hours.
Food very underwhelming too.
Can’t fault the staff and service though.

We have been dining at Cafe Boheme for over 25 years so it’s a firm favourite! Moules or steak-frites are superb washed down with a couple of glasses of cider.
