AVOID - TERRIBLE SERVICE - BLAND FOOD.
Our awful experience started when we were seated outside on a nicely decorated patio but to an UNSET table. Not a problem until our appetizer was dropped in front of us by a very RUDE bus boy before our drinks came or silverware even after we asked the bus boy for them. After looking around for our waiter as our appetizer sat getting cold, my boyfriend had to get up from the table to find a mgr to request some silverware. Then our BLAND TASTING main course came; overcooked sea bass and salmon. Being that it was my birthday dinner, we really tried not to concentrate on the medicore food & dreadful service. So we continued to eat our meal, & ordered another drink to calm our frustration. Mind you this whole time the waiter didn't speak to us, never asked how our drinks or food was nor did he ask how we managed to get silverware. After dinner we request to speak to the mgr & had to wait 15mins until we were approached by two pretentious mgrs. I forgot to mention our server didn?t go completely mute after all, he did open his mouth to ask if we were finished so he can take our bill as we were waiting to speak to the mgr. We described to the mgrs how HORRIBLE the evening was ? their generic reply was ?we are sorry guys; you should have came to one of us during the meal to tell us what was going on.? Huh, I guess coming up to one of them to get silverware & our table set was not a clue in itself. To add to our INSULTING night, their solution to our problem was to offer us two ?SHOTs? at the bar. How RIDICULUS was that question & could it be more OFFENSIVE! As we were walking out I can see our waiter patting one of the managers on the back?I guess it is common for the mgrs to reward the staff for their UNPROFESSIONAL BEHAVIOR instead of listening or showing respect to the paying customers.
I posted this lengthy review to explain in detail how horrible this establishment treated us in hope of deterring others from wasting their time and money as we did.
Romantic, Stylish, Great Service and Delicious food!.
We went to Cafe La Boheme last night for a romantic dinner for four of us (two couples). The atmosphere was awesome, I love the decor and warmth on the inside seating area and the patio was adorable. We sat outside under the stars (on a gorgeous night) and loved the ambiance with the twinkling lights and fireplace.
The service was top notch! I am not sure what role this guy has in the restaurant, perhaps he was the sommelier, but his name was Josh and he was SO attentive and full of information. When we were only somewhat pleased with the wine selection (due to different palletes at the table) and so he eagerly offered up other options and food pairings.
The other waitstaff were attentive and friendly, as well. We felt very taken care of.
I had the Seabass which was wonderful! It was light and healthy feeling but had so much flavor in the dish!
My boyfriend had the rib-eye, which I tasted and thought was delicious. He substituted the yam puree instead of what the dish normally comes with and it was divine.
For desert, I had the lemon creme brulee, which I LOVED. Also on the table was the butterscotch pafait and the chocolate mini cake. The chocolate cake was rich and delicious. It is quite small, but I actually felt was the perfect amount based on how rich it was. The parfait was very yummy, but honestly, I didn't think it was too far off normal butterscotch pudding that I make at home. It had won awards, which I thought was surprising because I didn't think it was exciting or different, whereas I could see the brulee winning something. The sugar was crisp to perfection and the lemon flavor added a fresh light taste. YUM.
All in all, we would highly recommend this restaurant as a great romantic dinner out in Los Angeles! We will be back for sure!
Excellent Dining Experience!.
My boyfriend and I are both from New York and he is a chef for one of the top restaurant groups in the country. It was his first dinner our in Los Angeles and I was very impressed with Boheme's reviews and chef's response to the reviews. We had the sea bass and salmon followed by green tea tiramisu. The fish was cooked perfectly and the blend of the ingredients in both dishes were done just right. Our entrees came out really quickly, our waiter was super friendly and attentive and although we lingered after closing time, we never felt pressured to leave. I made special requests in my reservation and all were met by Boheme's very attentive staff. Valet parking was available and cheap! (FINALLY!) The courtyard is extremely romantic and they put enough outdoor heaters outside so I was able to be warm in a dress at night. The decor on the interior was amazingly eclectic and fun! The prices are completely fair for the quality of the food and experience, not like other WeHo places that are super expensive with metiocre food and service.
My boyfriend enjoyed everything and is excited to return, as am I. We both highly recommended it to all of our friends.
Romantic, beautiful setting w/ scrumptious foods. My hubby and I chose to come here the night after Valentines Day after reading its reviews. This was our first visit but hopefully not our last. The food was wonderful, the service delightful, and the dessert....oh, the dessert. After stuffing ourselves with apps and dinner, we finally opted for the famous parfait and our only regret was that we shared it with each other instead of each getting our own! Do not step foot outside this restaurant without trying the butterscotch parfait.
Great customer service and food.
I Just wanted to send a note of thanks for making a recent visit a
Saturday night our party of 3 was rudely turned away from the O Bar due
to no available seating even though the restaurant was 3/4 empty.
Driving past your location we decided to give Cafe La Boheme a try. We
were pleasantly greeted by your host staff who accommodating our party
graciously after a short review of the reservations and went above and
beyond to make us feel welcome. Needless to say the entire staff and
food was outstanding and I have to say your standards are being executed
Romance personified. another friday night, another opportunity to wine and dine my significant other. this was my choice and oh, what a choice! the remodel has done nothing to damage the sheer prettiness of the place, but it has certainly brought the crowd back to the good ol days. the atmosphere was buzzing as were we when told that the requested booth was ours for the night. our waiter was excellent and the food good. my steak was a little over cooked, but that did little to dampen the ardour. overall, highly recommended but make sure the person you take is up to par otherwise you will resent them for not befitting la boheme! au revoir!
It's still got that romance.
Before it closed down for remodeling, La Boheme was one of my favorite romantic restaurants in the city. Now that it's reopened, it's clear that it hasn't lost any of its former romance. When i first walked in, I was expecting a huge change, but other than the chandeliers, I didnt really notice any difference. The outdoor patio still has the best seats in the house... there's just something about sitting outside with the stars overhead as a fire gently roars in front of you. The menu had some noticeable differences -- there's much more of an Asian influence now and the prices were slightly lower than before. The kabocha salad
(Japanese squash) was a standout and the mushroom risotto was flavorful, but a tad too cheesy. For dessert, we ordered the (very small yet very delicious) warm chocolate cake with pistachio ice-cream and butterscotch pudding (which was not worth ordering). All in all, the food was good but didn't dazzle. Still, for a little romance, it's worth a visit.
