16 years and still outstanding
Mike and I went to Dix et Sept 16 years ago on our first date. When I found Bobo reopened ni it's space I had to go. This is the second time there. This time for brunch. The food and wine was outstanding. The hostess and wait staff were every bit as good as Six et Sept. Thanks for the wonderful experience. We will be back many times.

A beautiful neighborhood gem
The restaurant ambiance was outstanding- we sat outside in the courtyard. The food was divine!

Fine food only a few steps down
It was a perfect place to celebrate a special evening.
The food was extraordinary as was the service.
Treat yourself to a great night out.

A Friend's Recommendation
Following the return of my foodie friend, after being away 12 weeks, he suggested that we try this West Village haunt. I said YES!. Being that I hadn't been here since it opened. We arrived a few minutes early to enjoy a libation at the bar. Great classic cocktails and also seasonal specials. I had the delicious cocktail that tasted like summer, light and delicious. It was the perfect way to begin our night. Our friend joined us right on time and we were walked to our table. The highlights of the summer menu included lobster salad with a flavorful guacamole and grapefruit segments, mini ravioli and heirloom tomatoe salad. There was a lamb two ways entree that my husband enjoyed with grilled fennel and roasted vegetables. GO THERE NOW!

Cozy restaurant with delicious food
Luxurious but not pretentious; friendly but not cloying; comfortable and cozy. I had a fresh and tasty octopus appetizer and a simple but perfectly prepared roast chicken. The wine was also tasty and the entire bill was less than I expected. Impeccable service, candlelit, and overall a sweet experience

Took the boss to Bob for his birthday celebration and it could not have been more perfect! The ambience, the food, the service was all outstanding!
I will certainly recommend Bobo and I will definitely return!

Great for Groups
Met a group of friends (over 8) for a vibrant meal. For the price Bobo offered a great experience that I don't think we would have received at a more expensive restaurant. The service was great, the food wonderful, and we all left knowing that we'd come back soon.

Loved the atmosphere. Decor and service. Appetizers were not greatm raviolis were too salty and mussels were too small. Duck was great. Skimmpy on the wine allowance in each glass for the price. Overall would return and next time choose different appetizers.

Lovely Evening in the Garden
Had a great meal on the upstairs patio. Friendly, attentive server and great food inside a charming West Village Townhouse
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very vegetarian friendly!
The folks at Bobo know me and treat me right--they will craft spectacular vegan or vegetarian things for me even though they are not on the menu. My foodie friends love this place, and the desserts are to die for. They also have interesting cocktails which change with the seasons. Last time I was there, the noise was more than usual, but generally it's great for an intimate, romantic dinner.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Short but sweet....pleased with every aspect of dining at Bobo. Food, service, ambiance all exceeded my expectations. The rooftop is beautiful. No worries about weather since it is covered and air conditioned. I will definitely return on my next visit to Manhattan and have already recommended to friends.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I celebrated my anniversary here and it was romantic, delicious and not too price for the great food and ambiance that we got. I definitely recommend it for a special occasion.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoyed our dinner there. I made a reservation on open table the morning of, and everyone from the hostess down to the bus boys were incredibly attentive (but not annoyingly-so). The waiter and maitre d made sure we had an excellent time and i'll 100% be back.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bobo is a great dining experience!
Our meals were flavorful and expertly prepared. The stuffed mozzarella appetizer and the deserts presented an array of flavors and textures. The entrees were as tasty and well prepared as any you find at any price. I can not recommend Bobo highly enough.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bobo's is the best
Living in the middle of the United States but being lucky to travel to NYC at least twice a year we wanted to surprise our friend with a surprise birthday party. Party of 8; reservations all in order and our meeting at the bar downstairs was awesome and it only got better as we went upstairs. Everyone in our party got something different and everyone was well pleased. My guest was impressed with everything. Thanks Bobo for making our evening one to remember.

Great duck. Great steak au
Great duck. Great steak au poivre. The tartare was too salty but all other apps were very much enjoyed. Recommended.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very special place where you have the
choice to dine in either a cool bar scene,
an outdoor garden deck or an eclectically
elegant dining room. And the food is great!
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were seated in the outdoor garden, which is on the top floor of the house. The lighting was soft, and it was a treat to be outside.
The service was very friendly. We really felt welcome. The Bobo salad was delicious, with perfect Bibb lettuce and goat cheese with fresh herbs. The sea scallops were cooked perfectly, though the risotto they came with seemed a bit mushy to me. My husband got the bouillabaisse, which was very good, but the portion was really on the small side. Overall, I think the place is a winner, and I would go back, just that the food is not absolutely stellar, but certainly way above average. The atmosphere is special; it's obvious an effort is being made to make the place look lovely, and to treat customers well.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great find of French food
Was our first time at Bobo and will definitely not be our last..already a destination neighborhood now a destination restaurant. You walk into a vibrant bar with lots of locals..the second floor is nicely decorated for a formal dinner and steps away from that is a garden area also for dinning. We also liked the little bar on the second floor for some quiet conversation..
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great meal in the garden
This was our first time at Bobo. Full marks to the staff for a good "save". We booked on open table and asked for a table in the garden. When we got there they said their was a private event running late and would we mind sitting in the bar area to eat. We were meeting friends from England we had not seen in many years and wanted to be able to chat, but did not want to wait long for the table, so we sat in the bar. Within 15 mins the bar was packed and very loud (we couldnt hear each other speak). The staff quickly realized and were able to get us up to the garden. Thereafter, great meal - food ambience etc.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
What had been delightfully quiet and intimate was abruptly destroyed by a very loud party of 6 seated at next table. Tomato salad was the best...excellent scallops, so-so striped bass, Uneven desserts as well. Waiter was somewhat intrusive and served us a different year than was on the wine list without mentioning it - when we asked for the listed year, he tried to upsell us.;
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food delicious and excellent
Food delicious and excellent service.... What more can I say... We will be back....
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining in fall of NY
I like this place for romantic dining and nice french dishes.
The service was also very kind. I was there 2 month ago and I visit again last week.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food but...
It was a bit noisy for a romantic night . The host sat us outside but I had mentioned that it was our 10 yr anniversary and we would like a romantic table . I had always wanted to dine inside . But it seamed like it was so packed she just sat us anywhere . Wish we had had an inside table - maybe next time...
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Incredibly Awesome and Fantastic
Bobo was the best! I have only wonderful things to say about this restaurant! Will def. go to Bobo again!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten on several 3 starred michellin starred restaurents at our journey to New York.. And i will say this restaurent is better than the most of them, its amazing and from now on every year im there i have to go AT Bobos :-) Its like the onther things you have to try in NY like times square and central park. You HAVE to try Bobos :-)
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
How have I not been here sooner??
I live in the west village and have passed Bobo a hundred times, finally a friend and I had brunch there this past saturday. I was very impressed, there are three floors and we sat on the roof in the outside garden. The decor was lovely and so cool, all the people were stylish and the service along with the food was great! I cannot wait to go back for dinner now! Don't be fooled when you first walk in and there is no one there - the bottom level is only open at night. GO! :)
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really lovely restaurant
If you wish to really have a true New York experience this is a great place to have it in! The restaurant itself is just lovely. My girlfriends and I went to have brunch and sat on the rooftop. It's pretty close to perfect! They don't come into town as often as I do, and yet for the 3 of us it was magical. The food was very good ( my choice was NOT alot of food but great for one who watches what they eat - as I do - the salmon with fried egg )
Highly recommend this place and can't wait to come back and have dinner. The service was very good as well.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Seated in the open air, we had a lovely dinner, with the English pea and sea scallop risotto and pan-seared striped bass as the highlights. But our dinner was marred by overhearing our server reciting daily specials to the couple at the adjoining table as we finished our tea and coffee. We weren't told of any specials! A disappointing end to the meal.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun relaxing place for a delicious dinner. I've been here twice and absolutely love the cute, funny, efficient and friendly people who work here. Love the enclosed roof top dining!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Birthday at Bobo
Had a wonderful romantic dinner. Ambiance was right up there. Locally grown menu hit all the right notes. Had the Heirloom tomato salad - maybe best salad I've ever had. Felt like I was in someone else's dining room. I would go back again.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My girlfriend and I had a very nice dinner. No complaints. The waiter was excellent.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gracious unrushed service
Lovely, lovely space. Charming, romantic, cozy. Inventive, flavorful dishes that weren't pretentious or silly. The service we received was outstanding: good menu recommendations/explanations, a dessert exchange after one in our party changed his mind, and our server graciously accommodated a guest who joined us at dessert. Never rushed or hurried (we were there for 3hrs+).
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a wonderful surprise
Bobo is back. Years ago I wrote off Bobo and would walk by it daily without giving it a thought. But with a change in mngt it has really turned it around. I have been back three times in a month. The bar is hoping thanks to friendly staff and superb house cocktails. The food is some of the best in the neighborhood. Last night I had the. Steak tartare with house made potato chips. I had to beat my friends off from eating all of it. The duck duo entree was perfectly cooked. I actually started gnawing on the leg bone. And the chocolate mars bar for dessert was sinful. Wide range of wine prices and selections, All around wonderful.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Charming restaurant with nice wines by the glass and excellent service. Portion size is just right. We shared the grilled octopus app and kale salad and had the risotto with scallops and figs for an entree. Ate every delicious bite.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently excellent. The food is fantastic. The back garden is a great setting.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my new favourite restaurant in New York. The food was delicious without being expensive. The bar downstairs was lively but we were seated upstairs where is was quieter. The waiter sold the specials to us very well and the duck I had for main was beautiful.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
A perfect place for a romantic date
A very glamorous place. The food and costumer service is great !! Perfect for a romantic date !!

Fun brunch in the village
A friend recommended this place for brunch and it didn't disappoint - the $35 prix fixe menu was a perfect amount of food, and the specialty cocktails offered were delicious. Cute ambiance and wish we had asked for a patio table but didn't know any better at the time.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was absolutely delicious, the wine list thoughtful, and the service was excellent from the hostess all the way back to the kitchen. Bravo and thank you for a wonderful meal and a memorable experience.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
An oasis ..
Very nice, civilized place in a so-busy neighborhood. Tasty, imaginative food, perfect for sharing. Service, drinks were first-rate, and the ambiance was on par. Be sure to get a table upstairs; feel in the basement isn't bad, but it is loud -- maybe too loud.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great hidden gem!
I went to Bobo to celebrate my finishing of the NYC Marathon and just loved it! I tried a nice Pinot Noir from France to go with my wonderful steak! Great mousse dessert too! I loved how it is set on the corner and has a cute downtairs entrance, just adorable! And it is in a great neighborhood! Great service and loved the ambiance. This is a cute little place and would make for a wonderful evening for any celebration!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
So glad we found Bobo!
It's so gratifying when a search for a new place to try turns out perfectly. We LOVED the second floor dining room and the passionate people working in this establishment! The food and wine were outstanding and we felt so special and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. It was a very special night!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely one of my favorite places in the city. Everything about this restaurant was perfect.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Awesome food. Great vibe!
First time there. Will definitely go back. Had foie gras and octopus appetizers and scallops. All excellent.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
more than welcome
from the start< the hostess downstairs to your waiters and waitperson stff and the roaming owner, it one of the most comfortable and best food experiences in Manhattan. I return and return.
The sense of humor and knowledge is unsurpassed, and I eat at most of the "spots" in Manhattan
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM

My first visit to Bobo and what a nice surprise. Great good and ambiance. I would definitely come back.
