A great experience
Had dinner here for my mom's birthday. I had the surf and turf (This being SF, the "surf" was crab) and both the steak and crab were excellent. The service was outstanding, even though the place was fairly crowded. The side dishes and desserts were great as well. We shared the Mac and cheese and the twice-based potato. Looking forward to visiting the Bay Area again, and enjoying another dinner at Bobo's.

Bobo's is a great restaurant in the Marina district. The ambiance is romantic and the waitress was amazing, very quick and very friendly. I always recommend BoBo's to my friends who are not from the area. They are widely known for their amazing bone in filets and their perfectly made crab.

My bf and i both ordered the bone-in filet mignon. It was a HUGEE size, double/triple the size I normally get from other places in sf and cooked perfectly medium rare. It was cooked perfectly throughout the entire steak which must have been a hard feat with the steak being so thick. We also got the shrimp and mussels bake which was also very very good but I think comparable to other places.

Just want to say that once again after a 2 year gap of not coming here and going to other steak houses around the city...I am once again in love. The fillet mignon by far is the best I've had. Yellow-tail appetizer is a must as well.

I am in the wine business and come to San Francisco once a year, 4 of the last 5 years I have taken my group to Bobo's for steak.
Every time our food has been excellent and they have become our benchmark for beef at all other restaurants. Their bone in filet is amazing, my only wish is that they would add a ribeye to their menu. The flat iron mussels are a favorite as well.

Great food, service & atmosphere
The atmosphere was cool and warm at the restaurant. The staff was courteous and conversational. We are from NYC and we are excited to be in San Francisco. Bobo's mussels were some of the best I have had.

I took my boyfriend there
I took my boyfriend there for his birthday. It was my first time and he is a regular. I LOVED IT. Food was fantastic and our server was great. We got the muscles and shrimp. OMG they practically melted in our mouth. We had nice quiet seating with a dim chandler and- VERY ROMANTIC!
I've been telling all everyone about it sense. I will definitely be returning ASAP!

Did not disappoint
I've been driving past this restaurant for years now and have always been curious, but somehow never made it there. This weekend we decided to check it out once and for all and we were both ecstatic that we did. The filet mignon was "melt in your mouth" good and the fish was absolutely divine. We were served with a heaping loaf of bread for starters with garlic and herbs smothering the top of the loaf. Truly delicious. We shared a twice backed potato and a side of cauliflower and both sides were absolutley cooked to perfection. A great place for steak and crab for sure. If you haven't tried it, I highly reccomend this place. you won't be disappointed.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
our beef dishes were fabulous. the small filet was so thick and tender. it melted in my mouth. the crab was very good but the sauce for it was bland.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time at Bobo's after hearing everyone rave about it...we were not disappointed. The bone-in filet mignon was outstanding along with our sides of the twice-baked potato and Swiss chard. We will definitely be back!!! THANK YOU!!!

best steak in sf!
I have been to all the steak houses but bobo's is special. buon appetito!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A place that really stands out
There is a lot of great food in San Francisco. This place stand out. From the complementary valet, to the over the top decor, this place screams fun, and a good night out. I the steaks around the table were incredible, the sides were amazing. The only flaw that could be found is the lack of any form of rib-eye steak. They do have some very uncommon cuts on the menu, such as a bone in delete mignon. I look forward to my next San Francisco visit to enjoy a night with Bobo's again.

Best Steakhouse Value in SF!
Lobster Bisque, NY Steak, Panna Cotta......a great Meal!!

Worth the walk!!!
When we finally arrived at the restaurant we were ready for a serious steak dinner. We were not disappointed! Immediately upon entering the restaurant we found the staff to be engaging and friendly. We were then taken upstairs where we met our server, Jorge. This man was a true professional of steaks. He gave us a short description of the dry aging process and a full rundown of the menu. I'm typically a medium well steak guy but Jorge asured me that medium would be a fine place for me to start at Bobos. I took the recommendation and I could not have been happier with the results. The steak came out at a perfect temperature and the flavor could not have been better. Great restaurant for any occasion.

Best Steak this Foodie Has Ever Had
Thank goodness "The House of Prime Rib" had a 2hr wait for 2! And thank goodness for "Open Table" or we might never have found what THE #1 in a lifetime steak experience for both my Fiancee & I,both foodies w VERY high stds.The BONE IN filet here is absolute PERFECTION.We eat beef at least once a week at home & often twice. I can't say enough about the amazing flavor,the degree of medium rare perfection, etc. Service was stellar at the bar & in the dining room THANK YOU Heather & Eric! My fiancee is famous in the family for her twice baked potatoes,a bit awkward,but BoBo's was better! Why? At least one secret ingredient that took the texture over the top.Do yourself & someone u love a favor,dine here soon,can't wait to go back for the crab!

Fantastic steak and dessert
We had a bone in filet mignon that was divine. How ever the lobster soup was curry flavoured and a little too sour. Overall the food was still fantastic. The mango pannacota was superb.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there with my wife and 3 other friends for my wife's birthday. Every thing was simply outstanding! Some of the best steaks we have ever tasted. Service was wonderful. Funky layout, but the fodd and service make up for that. Can't wait to go back.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
U get what u pay for
I reserve a day before on open table and got 730pm slot. Perfect. Times get booked quick so I think I got lucky. I was worried about parking but I was relieved that they had free valet. I just tipped them at the end of the night. I check in n tell the host I hav reservation and literally got sat down in 30sec. I ordered the award winning bone-in filet Mignon and my gf ordered the surf n turf. Crab n petite filet mignon. We also ordered the lobster cristini. It was bomb. Overall we got seated quickly since we had reservations, our food came out quick. And the food was Droolingly delicious. I can eat that crab n steak right now. With appetizer, drinks, and side orders, the bill was expensive. But you get what you pay for.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Read the reviews and they were right, it's the best steak we've had in the Bay area. Small and intimate, it's perfect. We'll be back.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best steak in town!
Bobo's is the spot for birthday's, anniversaries, and is a delight to steak lovers. I would suggest the bone in filet paired with a Napa Valley or South American cab. It's packed on the weekends, so definitely call ahead or use this site for reservations. A+ steaks!
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Brussels sprouts I have
Best Brussels sprouts I have ever had . Steak was perfect but was not impressed with the crab! Over a great evening
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's all about the steak and crab
I have eaten here about 5 times and every time has been as advertised. The bone-in filet was awesome again, and the steak and crab dish was generous in size and tastiness. The salads and side dishes were great too but they play second fiddle to the steak and crab. What a meal!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
What can I say?... I have been coming to Bobos for years and the food continues to consistent and delicious.
You need to start with the sizzling platter of mussels and crab. Then a Cesar salad (which is made with baby iceberg lettuce instead of Romain) or the baby blue. The steak is AMAZING. I have never been to a restaurant that has been so consistent when cooking steak. It is always perfect. For a side, the twice baked potato, Brussel sprouts, mac and cheese, and onion rings. But save room for dessert the chocolate bomb.... then call an ambulance because you won't be able to move.
The wait staff is always great. Friendly, attentive and very warm.
I always recommend Bobos for steak. You will never go wrong.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Best Steak EVER!!!!
Food was amazing, I will continue to go back to this place for sure.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, service and even complimentary valet parking. All outstanding!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Steak was on point!
One of the best steaks that I have ever had. This place might be my go to steak spot from now on!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Get the Bone-In Filet
One of the best steaks I've eaten! Definitely a little pricey, but very well prepared, they are known for their Bone In Filet and I can see why, it was excellent!
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice experience. Bone in filet with crab was great coupled with a reasonably priced A. Rafanelli Zin. Excellent service! Fun atmosphere! Intimate booth made for a great evening. Will return soon.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been to many other steak houses in SF, and really enjoyed Bobo's. Very good all around
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Filet mignon as good as they advertised but just too big. Certainly worthy of being called best steak house in SF
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had reservations at 8:00
We had reservations at 8:00 and were seated around an hour later, that's not okay. Everything else was amazing!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bone In Special
The bone in and double baked potatoe is th perfect combo.Great portion and solid and tasty.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great business dinner
I met with a friend to discuss career opportunities over a steak dinner. It was formal enough to conduct business, yet casual enough to not make it weird. Food and service was great!

16th Wedding Anniversary Dinner
I usually don't write reviews but my experience was such that I felt the need to express my overall satisfaction with Bobo's. My niece suggested Bobo's to me because she knew how much I enjoyed a great steak. After finishing my bone in Filet and crab I proceeded to eat my wife's unfinished bone in Filet. One of the best steak's I've ever had and I will need visit this establishment more frequently. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the ambiance quiet and romantic. Made a reservation 2 days in advance for 6:30pm on a Friday and was seated immediately. If you're in the mood for an excellent steak, don't hesitate to visit Bobo's.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I think this restaurants serves
I think this restaurants serves among the best steaks in town. I was not fond of the garlic bread that they served but they happily replaced it with plain bread, which was perfect.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We experienced a blackout and Jorge and his staff did a remarkable job.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best meal my boyfriend and I have had in a long time! It was a great experience all around! I highly recommend Bobo's!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to eat
I had been to Bobo's before and once again found the food and service to be of the highest quality.
It is a fun place to eat and meet with friends.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
San Francisco Gem!
The entire meal was fabulous, however the bread infused with olive oil and garlic was downright sinful it was so good. All he food was extreme flavorful and cooked to perfection.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of my favorite places
This time out, went with "Double Crab, Double Shrimp," a great amount of food for two people who want to eat out but still want to eat smart. We also threw down with Lobster Crostinis, which were out of this world. Great service, Shawn is an excellent bartender and makes the best blood orange martini ever.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a great place in San
This is a great place in San Francisco which represents the city well. Great steak, professional service and a good ambiance I enjoyed my meal thoroughly.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
The muscles are, without a doubt, the best I've ever had. Even considered ordering them for my main course in addition to appetizers
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Night out
Went here for first time. Was looking for a good steak and found a great steak, the bone in filet was outstanding and cooked perfectly. Special Note: If you like your steak medium rare order it MEDIUM.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
BoBo's Is a Must!
Excellent place! I'm a pescatarian and had no problem. The others in my group ate the beef and said it was the best they've ever had!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best Filet I've ever had
Went here to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday over the weekend. Moved to San Francisco a few months ago and she wanted to go to a place that had seafood and steak. Came across Bobos listed as a top 10 steakhouse in the country in 2012 so decided to check it out. While the setup is a little weird (some clown decorations and small house-type setting) the food was fantastic! My girlfriend ordered half crab half petite filet and I got the bone-in filet. We expected great texture (which it had) but were surprisingly shocked at how much flavor they had--especially the bone-in! Side of double baked potato was stellar, modern mac was simply above average. Disappointed mildly with crab due to the weird garlic sauce. Still had a lot of flavor

Serious steak in relaxed atmosphere
Every visit at Bobo´s is a treat. The food i excellent, and the service isn´t far behind! With the typical steak house menu, you can concentrate on choosing the size of your meet and the grade - the rest will be taken care of by the chef!
The filet mignon is amazingly tender and the sides are always prepared to perfection. Because of iBobo´s little rustique touch, the guests sometimes are a little to loud and noisy for my preferences, but that is my only complaint. The whole family loves Bobo´s.
I have given it an overall "4", but the food is definitely a "5" :-)
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tired of Morton's and Ruth's?
When you go to Bobos you know you are in for a special dining experience. It's not designed like a traditional stakehouse but don't let that fool you. STEAK is what they are known for and should be. Bobos should be winning an award for best steakhouse in San Francisco every year. Do yourself a favor and get the shrimp crab appetizer. Everyone has had crab and shrimp yet Bobos finds another way to outdo themselves with this dish. And don't forget to get the chocolate cones for desert as it will compliment any meal. If you have been here I don't need to convince you to come back as I'm sure you already have. If you have not had the " Bobos Experience " place it high on your to do list right next to climb Everest.

Great as always!
Good folks, great food. Will always be a special place for my wife and I.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Found Bobo's online a few years ago and gave it a try for a party of 8...out of the usual for them, but it was handled so well, we all have returned more than once! The steaks are to die for!
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Brady steakhouse in city.
