Excellent service...fabulous food, the Branzini dish was wonderful...the lemon panda cotta dessert was a perfect refreshing finish....a bit loud ...tough on conversation...but typical NYC.

AMAZING experience. The food is incredible, and the price is reasonable compared to the quality and taste. We got the tasting menu there, and I loved every single dish! My favorite was the Branzino and the raw wagyu beef. They also have many other dishes that you can order a la cart. I will definitely be coming back! The only caveat is that you will need to know someone who has been to the restaurant before, as they don't post their information on the website.

Members-only dining. Well, you simply need a referral from someone who's dined here before. Great food in an intimate environment.

Bohemian restaurant is an intimate Japanese speakeasy that serves amazing gut-busting dishes (esp if you get their prix fixe for $58 pp). Three dishes they deliver exceptionally well: beef sashimi, roasted branzino, and Honey Lemon pannacotta. *Unfortunately, I will only share the number with people I know. Intimate- The restaurant can seat ~30 people maximum at one time. So very small space. And they only accept reservations for a Max of 6 people at one time. Due to the space limitation, they have Very strict policies. The FOOD was surprising and delicious. -The Farmers Fresh Vegetable Fondue was beautiful display of fresh daikon, white and orange baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, red peppers, and radicchio. Beautiful, appetizing and fun to dip into the fondue. Fondue was warmed with a tea light candle. -Uni croquette was a mushroom croquette topped with uni. Great crispy mushroom croquette, I just wished the uni tasted more briny. Not my favorite but my friends enjoyed this dish very much. -The Washu short-rib Beef sashimi was so fatty, it had the consistency of oh-toro. I loved it! They gave condiments of wasabi, lemon, mushroom infused garlic and daikon. The best pairing was with mushroom infused garlic. The mushroom and garlic with the fatty beef melds into the perfect bite. -Pan roasted Branzini. I was surprised how delicious roasted fish can be. Easily one of the better dishes in the prix fixe menu. Roasted with olive oil, garlic, olives, baby potatoes, cauliflower, rosemary, anchovies, and zucchini. So good. I am definitely coming back to order this. -Kobe and angus beef sliders. Perfect medium rare. And they cooked 6 of them to the perfect T and doneness. Juicy, perfectly seasoned. Very good. What I loved more than the slider was the roasted potatoes accompanying this dish. Salty, crunchy, carmelized potatoes. OMG. too good. - Honey lemon yuzu panna cotta. Loved the Lemon and yuzu in the pannacotta. Very appetizing. The panna cotta was smooth and creamy. I would have asked for two if I wasn't so full.

Took my girlfriend here for first anniversary. Great spot, feels very exclusive due to the phone number gimmick. I got the sample dish, got to try a bit of everything. Fantastic experience.

Intimate experiences are tough to come by in NYC. Certain speakeasies have nailed this[1], while others feel like meat markets. Bohemian addresses this by being referral-only. Yes, you need to know someone to snag a reservation[2]. I'm sure this approach may have hurt initially, but they've since hit critical mass: I stopped by to say hello one polar vortexy weeknight, and every table was filled. Even full, there's room to canoodle and enjoy your shrimp toast, or eavesdrop on your neighbors. Drinks-wise, I've had quite the experience with both their in-house drinks and classics. When it comes to food, skip their tasting menu and dive into whatever sounds good to you. Everything's stellar. From the foie gras soba to the short rib sashimi, dishes are rich, flavorful, and freshly-prepared. [1] Attaboy, I'm looking at you. And I still love you. [2] Unfortunately I can only refer folks I've met in real life. If I refer someone who's nuts, it'll make me look bad. Not that I think you're nuts. Maybe.

After several hurdles, I managed to make a reservation here. It's a small restaurant, and they don't rush their patrons so to turn seats. before you call them pretentious for having a speakeasy and a secret phone number, understand that what makes this place good is the fact that it's small, and the quality of the food/attentiveness of the staff depends on things being small and manageable. Makes for a great date spot. Everything is good.
