A word from Bobo Restaurant
Breathing new life into a hundred year old brownstone in the West Village, Bobo hums with the excited din of a dinner party. Bobo is a clubhouse for spirited grown-ups to enjoy soulful seasonal French food in a fantasy townhouse setting that marries European elegance and romance with New York’s downtown energy. Chef Cedric Tovar’s (Daniel, Peacock Alley, Town) menus offer a contemporary take on seasonal French classics that celebrate our region’s best ingredients, from same-day fish and shellfish from the shores of Long Island, to heritage duck and heirloom produce from the Hudson Valley.

Bobo is open for dinner nightly, happy hour, and brunch on the weekends. The bar serves seasonal cocktails and sustainably produced wines from family-owned vineyards. The restaurant was designed by Dekar and spans several floors of our elegant and funky house, offering a range of environments, including a garden, for a range of occasions.

Diner Reviews
  • "I went with my mother when visiting NYC from London. It was the best meal we had throughout our stay. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable and the whole experience just perfect!"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Our experience at Bobo was lovely. The service could use a little work. Our server was attentive but seemed oddly nervous and scattered. Food was great. Would highly recommend the mini crab cakes, octopus salad, and steak tartare. I got the scallops and risotto. The risotto was good but overcooked. The scallops were a little small. We tried 3 desserts, they were good but not amazing. Best item was the salted caramel ice cream. Our cocktails were excellent. They stole the show. I've heard people rave about their bar scene and happy hour but haven't gone myself. You could certainly hear the noise from the bar downstairs while in the main dining room upstairs."

  • "BOBO is swanky and cool. It is definitely the bohemian bourgeois it aims to be. Service is fun and articulate, food is good but not as exceptional as the décor and "the place to be" vibe that permeates. Selections will not disappoint, yet, more creativity with the preparations, more fresh herbs and less salt and less pasta would be appreciated."

  • "food was good but too small compare to the expensive bill; service was excellent!"

  • "Had such a great time here the other weekend. Brunch is not my favorite meal but Bobo does it right. Super beautiful space and sunlit, glassed in outdoor patio. Amazing Bloody Marys. And the service was super friendly. And the best - they take reservations - which is not always the norm for brunch in nyc on a Sunday. Good times!"

  • "Overall we were very happy with our trip to Bobo. We started out our evening in the bar and after dining upstairs wished we had stayed down in the bar for dinner. The bartender was amazing - great drinks - good conversation - made us feel welcome. Upstairs while the food was good and everything was fine it was just a different "feel." As is common in many places in NYC we were crammed up next to another couple which just puts a damper on the evening. The downside of service is when our waiter took a break toward the end of the meal for a very obvious smoke break - please don't serve desert smelling like smoke - unless it was kitchen smoke. Would we go back, yes, but may stay downstairs."

  • "Food is good but very small portions, particularly the risotto entree. Also, had issues with the amount of wine that they pour for a glass."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The service was attentive and the food was excellent! The space is also beautiful so dinner at Bobo always feels like a special occasion."

  • "I've lived around the corner from Bobo for at least 6 months now and finally decided to give it a try. I am very happy I did. The food, wine and service were all amazing. My friend and I shared the ravioli, which was so full of flavor. She ordered the scallop risotto and I had the duck - both excellent dishes. The duck was prepared perfectly. I can't think of one negative thing to say about this place. Also, this place is great for dates. It's really romantic and dimly lit."

  • "Food yummy. Service warm and cordial. It's small and very cozy. It can get a bit pricey for a casual neighborhood dinner."

  • "We were looking for something different, and picked Bobo from the Open Table listing. Food was excellent; service was terrific; and we felt well taken care of. We'll return."

  • "This was our first return visit to Bobo since our daughter's wedding there last June- which I would highly recommend for a small, intimate, romantic wedding or event. It was perfect!! The food was excellent!! And the staff was great!! This visit was no exception. The waiter was knowledgable, and the food delicious, and of course the setting was charming. We sat out on the covered, heated terrace. Michael, one of the owners, came out and visited with us for a bit as well as making his way around to see if others were happy too. We will definitely return and recommend."

  • "Three floors of a townhouse restaurant what a concept. The food was very good I went to valentines dinner and had the prefixe menu and was amazed by the food. The drinks were also good and the staff was very attentive. All in all I enjoyed my dinner and drinks with my wife and will be returning in the future."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great food. Excellent service. A bit noisy and difficult for a quiet conversation."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Absolutely loved Bobo--the short ribs were cooked perfectly and the black truffle risotto was delicious. The ambience was lovely and our server could not have been nicer. I cannot wait to come back for another meal!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "From arrival to departure, drinks to dessert - really nicely done by all the staff"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Went here for Valentine's Day (made the reservation too late, so options were limited). Dinner was fine. Service was fine. Everything was simply fine. Not too good, not too bad. If you can't get a table elsewhere, Bobo is suitably romantic and has ample space for group dining. But try to get a table elsewhere."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Was ok ... but just ok. Not worth the price, no plans to go back."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Made reservation last minute with them to celebrate an early Valentines day dinner. I had asked for a small request which was on the table when we got there (big plus) Food nothing but delicious! Service was welcoming, attentive and engaging. Definitely coming back!"
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "I'm crazy about Bobo--so near to me yet I had not been there before. It exceeded all expectations. The menu selection was excellent, the food was outstanding (with perfectly-sized portions), the ambiance was cozy and warm on a cold winter night, and the personal touch/service was extraordinary from greeting to farewell. Our server might be the most charming waiter I have ever had. I can hardly wait to go back and I'm looking forward to enjoying the garden if it ever warms up again."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Bobo is always great. Our service was impeccable, and the food most definitely matched. We love Bobo because it's small/quaint enough to feel like it's your own secret, yet energetic enough to feel the whole city around you. We can't wait to return."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Fabulous! Extremely tasty! Great Service!! Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "That rare and cozy feeling of dining royally, in a home - literally! - setting. Unpretentious and delicious, great crowd, attentive and friendly service. Worth the repeat calls of its obviously loyal customers. And a thrill for the new ones."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "met up with some friends for a glass of wine and loved the wine list, had some great wine that you don't find everywhere and the ambiance was perfect..I felt like I was in a little hideaway in Paris..loved this place and will come back!"
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "Exceeded my expectations -- will return when in NYC."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "My friend and I were late for our Saturday afternoon reservation but we were greeted with a smile and seated immediately anyway. Hard to decide between the service or the food which was more impressive. Our coffees were kept hot, the water glasses were never empty, our orders were delivered perfectly and we were encouraged to linger despite the room being full. The food was also great - we had the farm omelette and the egg white fritatta and both were hot, fluffy and generously sized. The brussels sprouts w bacon were also cooked perfectly and delicious. In this neighborhood there's so much brunch demand that restaurants can get lazy/cut corners, but not at Bobo!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "I was so excited to try this restaurant was but utterly disappointed. I never write a review but feel the need to warn people from overspending for such lack luster food and service....everything was under seasoned. I make better food then this chef. Only the cheese plate was worth mentioning since there was no cooking involved. For a signature dish, the "bobo salad" looked pretty but tasted bland. My cod dish had a soggy skin and the sauce was "broken". My friend had the steak and even the fries were terrible. Neither of us had more than a 1/4 of our dish. No one inquired why we ate so little. Service was so terrible I tipped 10% rather than the usual 20%. Do not waste you hard earned money here."

  • "Great job! Excellent food, service and ambiance. We went for our anniversary and had a wonderful evening."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "The bar scene on the first floor is just what you're looking for to connect on a cold winter's day. The second floor is great for romantic dining without the din of the bar scene. The atrium on the second floor may make you pine for summer when the roof is lifted but it's great to be warm and toasty in an outdoor setting this time of year. And oh yeah... the food and service are great. Don't overlook this one!"
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "A real find. I highly recommend Bobo! Deiicous food in a great atmosphere."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Waiter was not really into us at all. Sorry we came here to eat. But maybe he had a bad night before us. Food was just ok- like it had been wonderful once,but now the recipes have been given to less accomplished chefs. Great decoration and cute place. Really wanted to like it more."
    Dined on 1/13/2014
  • "I don't live in NY and was looking for a place to catch up with a friend I hadn't seen in a very long time. This was a very highly recommended restaurant from a colleague and I'm so happy I chose to take her up on her recommendation. I will make it one of my must go to places for future trips to ny."

  • "Wonderful food at this lovely restaurant in the West Village. A fun bar scene downstairs, but a quiet beautiful dining room upstairs where we enjoyed a fabulous dinner. The service was friendly and attentive. We will be back from brunch in the near future!"
    Dined on 1/6/2014
  • "Bobo was very good as usual, especially on Christmas Eve - the decorations, holiday menu items, and general ambience were perfect for our family celebration. The service is always very attentive and our waitress lived up to the high standards. The fish entrees were delicious and appropriate for the Xmas eve meal, along with the Buche de Noel for dessert. This is a great restaurant for special-occasion dinners - the setting is warm and romantic. The bar scene below, however, is an option for more informal fare."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Lovely antique decor, fabulous food -- do try the boulliabase, very nice and knowledgeable service and most pleasant hostesses at the desk. Attended the night of the Dec. snow storm and had a delay in arriving on time, they held our table and could not have been nicer about the problem. Will definitely return!"
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "One to remember! Food and wine were outta this world!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The upstairs dining room is cozy. The service is very good. But the food is only mediocre and way overpriced. I had the scallop risotto. It arrived luke warm with four small scallops and one sad shriveled little fig. Disappointing. With so many excellent options in the West Village, Bobo really needs to try harder."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "Great find. Live in neighborhood and never knew it was there. A wonderful small townhouse, very nice friendly staff. Food is excellent and be aware, it is priced accordingly, but worth it. Much more enjoyable than the "name" restaurants in NYC. Out of towers should try it for a real NYC experience rather than the plastic tourist trap venues."
