    Bo Beau's, is impressive - in service, in savory sustenance, and in over-all sensation - articulates Charles Dicken's outcome of France's struggles, In A Tale Of Two Cities. Paris will (rise to) become "a beautiful city" and this diner has faith in the essential goodness of the Parisian Bo Beau. The very poetic use of repetition, register this faith as a calm and soothing certainty. And 5 stars. Management made me a believer. The Executive Chef tantalizes taste buds with the perfected searing of scallops, and a fine fricassee, and an - ocean fresh clam bake. The beautiful cast of bartenders & servers are unvarying in providing excellence, in customer satisfaction. I am a Bo Beau believer.

    This is one cool restaurant that could easily fit in NYC. Manager came over to welcome us and asked if first time and gave us complimentary fried Brussels sprouts which were delicious. There were 8 of us and dinner went smoothly. Scallops, watermelon salad, filet, duck...we all loved. Service was perfect

    The last two times I have eaten here food was brought out incorrectly for instance I ordered an appetizer & my husband ordered steak we explained we wanted to eat together & sure enough they came out separately 4 out of the 6 wines on the menu were not available Next visit we barely got our cocktail & dinner arrived no one asked if we wanted to order wine until I asked the manager both prime ribs were sent back under cooked

    First time in the area and Bo-beau caught my eye, seemed like a chilled-out unpretentious but refined atmosphere. Dining alone, I was seated at the chefs table, which really gave me a good flipped into the preparation and ingredients, which looked great. I had high expectations. Ordered the duck breast at the server's recommendation - it was chewy and tasted like it was reheated, also had a very strange nutty-salty seasoning that I didn't care for. The burratta appetizer was decent. Malbec was good. Service was swift, professional, and helpful. Otherwise a good experience only to be let down by less-than-stellar food. I should have ordered the salmon.

    Wife took me here for my birthday. It was our first time here and our first time out in a while since having our son. For a Tuesday it wasn't packed, but it also had a good amount of customers. We never made it upstairs, but have heard good things about the dining area up there. It's a nice looking restaurant, can get a bit loud, but what do you expect with high ceilings and a restaurant that size. The menu was extensive and there were quite a few things that jumped out to us on the menu. Overall, we were very happy with our entire meal and drinks and would happily go back to try out the other things on the menu. The only thing probably better than the food was the attentive and friendly service.

    This place was highly recommended by a waiter at another local pub. Great beer selection and server knew what she was talking about. Food was excellent with some interesting twists on traditional pub food. We ate upstairs and weather was great. Reminded me of the Happy song, a room without a roof. I would definitely go back

    I love this place. The food (and drink) is great, the service is great, the ambiance is great. The restaurant gets very loud once filled which isn't horrible, unless you're sitting under a speaker and music is blaring. The tables are slightly larger than normal tables (which I actually loved), but once it gets loud, it makes it harder to have a conversation with the person across from you. The restaurant was very nice about turning the music down a bit and even checking in to make sure it was still ok halfway through dinner. Before or after dinner, the upstairs bar is a must see / must hang out.

    We started with a cocktail at the rooftop bar… The open roof was awesome… April our bartender was knowledgeable and attentive… And we enjoyed the pretzel nachos oh my God yummy!… Then went downstairs and had dinner in the main restaurant the servers were engaged and on top of everything… The food was different and fantastic… I was so surprised when the two of us had appetizers wine or a cocktail and dinner and the bill was just under $100 before gratuity… Definitely a great new place a must try!

    A really neat place to eat and the food good if not inspired. The menu can't seem to decide if it will be a french tapa bar or a french bistro. The problem was the service. The waitress didn't know we were assigned to her, we waited 20 minutes before anyone came by and we had to ask a couple of people to make that happen. There seemed also to be poor communication between what the waitress requested and what came out via the "servers". We got the wrong dishes in the wrong orders (we wanted salads first and got it all at once). We aren't terribly uptight diners but seriously...

    Came here with my husband for his 30th birthday; we'll definitely be returning for future special events or just when we're in the area and looking for a quality meal. Our server was extremely knowledgeable, their menu was unique and varied, and the food was incredible. Great draft beer selection, and an endless list of vodkas (on top of a full bar, wine list, and a few signature cocktails they're known for). And, last but not least, their decor and ambiance were a great cherry on top.

    The decor and ambiance was awesome - super cool booths, tables, everything, both in the dining room and upstairs at the open-air bar. Bar stools were the most comfortable I've ever sat in! Huge beer list. The service was very attentive and polite, even though it took a long time to get our food. Brussels sprouts are a must. Steak was good; duck was ok. Was hot in the dining room due to big fire but we are from Wisconsin so we're always hot. They reserved a booth for us since it was our anniversary. Even the bathrooms were super cool. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    I came here for my birthday this year with a group of friends. I only made a reservation for 4 but 3 extra showed up. The maitre'd made a annoyed face then put us in a booth meant for 5 and we squeezed in the extra 2 easily. There were multiple large tables available in the center area. We offered a ton of fold and it was all delicious. The lobster Mac and cheese was a bit strange so wouldn't order that again, but the squash blossoms, mussels and fries were really good. My friends had the escargot, filet mignon burger, and salmon tartare. They were nice enough to give me the wine that came with the burger and I had a glass of prosecco as well. The waiter brought out a plate of ice cream with cookie crumb and sang Happy birthday to me!

    What a great new addition to Long Beach, specifically the vibrant Pine Avenue restaurant and entertainment zone. My ratings indicate my experience; great ambiance, service, and since this was my first visit, I'm reluctant to make a strong comment on the food. My daughter's dinner, our first courses were terrific. My Croque Madame was not up to my standards but my standards originated in France on a ski trip. The roof tap is totally outstanding décor. This restaurant has legs for longevity. Good Job, folks.

    This is the second time I have been to Bo Beau and I will be back very soon! The building and decor is beautiful, the food is delicious and the libations are fantastic! They really hit a home run with this place. My first time I was worried it would get loud but it was fine. We were there until about 9:00pm both nights and there wasnt too much noise to still have concersation and not have to raise your voice. Staff is all friendly. The food.....amazing brussel sprouts, the Moules & Frittes are delish....everything I have had there is just really tastey! Definitely recommend this place for a date, celebration or just to hang out with friends!

It was a fun celebration dinner and we were able to hear each other and enjoy our long evening. Service was great. We had a party of 8 near the fireplace. Lovely, memorable, special. thanks Bo Beau!
