I had a taste of your food this evening and it was fabulous. I felt like I was in the heart of the French Quarter. My favorite was the bread pudding. Fabulous Food and Service.

When I heard it was owned by the same people as Caribou Cafe, I had to give a try. Succulent is the food! Lunch is a must do with colleagues and dinner with friends. Their wine selection is..........someone must know about wines back

My husband and I popped into this adorible restaurant for lunch the other day. We love seafood, and the two entrees we had were amazing. I'll get to them in a minute. We started with the tuna and salmon carpaccio, an appetizer, definitely

Portions insultingly small, particularly the salad. Salmon presented as two luke-warm postage-stamp sized square pieces, served upside down (skin on top). Noise level was incredibly high, requiring us to shout across the table in order

Cons: Slow Service, Poor management, Bad Chef

The small amount of food served here was really outragous. I am all for quality over quantity and I know to expect this in many French establishments. I actually felt ripped off. I was here about a year and a half ago and really liked it.

I called up to change my reservations and checked to make sure that everything was allright. And then called back and checked again. We showed up at 9:30 Pm for our reservation and the manager pretended like he had no idea about anything,

Mediocre at best! Grilled calamari appetizer was in fact breaded and fried and way too salty. We ordered the same salad and one portion had tons of bacon in it, the other portion barely had a few bits. The desserts were half decent

Good bread? One marvelous roll among several mediocre ones, but only one was found. Waitress recommended steak frites, but it was just plain steak I could get elsewhere. Garlic mayonnaise sauce seemed more like mayo with a little garlic

The food was excellent as well as the service. It is small with little room but it still has a wonderful atmosphere. I had the seabass it was out of this world. My wife had the salmon and she loved it.

I absolutely enjoyed everything both I (and my date) had at this restaurant. I'm a huge fan of quality food in a relaxed atmosphere. I'd like to imagine that I could get simple yet very appealing food (such as what is served here) daily.

Went with 3 others, I was wowed but other reviews were mixed. Worst review from anyone was "just pretty-good". I had the amazing cheese plate, followed by a great pork chop special with cider-jus sauce and a fig stuffing. Others started

In my wife & I's current goal of checking out all the new (and old) BYOs in Philly, we stumbled on La Boheme. We ate on a Monday night and had no problem walking in w/o a reservation.

I agree that the place is a bit cramped and feels like a huge party stuffed into someone's small dining room, but for that exact same reason it is a great, 'homey' experience. I loved the food as well...the escargot was good and I also

C'mon people--I'm so tired of going to these overly hyped little one-room "intimate" restaurants...do you miss the ambiance of a noisy grade-school cafeteria? Do you enjoy sitting less than a foot away from the tables around you? How

Liked the place but my veal was a little underdone for me. A little too chewy. The salad was good but felt it needed a little more flavor. Dessert of excellent. Service was pretty good.

What a treat - if interested in delicious french food at reasonable prices, this is it. Arugula/Goat cheese salad was great, Mussels in wine were delicious and very tender (better than a Belgian beer house 5 blocks west); Filet was cooked

Not-to-be-missed escargots, incredible lamb tajine, the biggest and cheapest wine list in the world - the perfect meal. Limited (but good) sandwich-style menu for lunch, but it really shines at night.

The boring classics are there in case you want them (steamed mussels, baked salmon etc). But in my case, one of the things I miss the most about Paris is the Maroccan food, so I was very pleased with the north african twist the chef puts
