    I'm not sure what Cohn is thinking closing this place up. San Diego doesn't need another Mexican joint (especially at Cohn prices) but we do need our fabulous Brussels Sprouts. Tough to say good-bye to one of the few "nice" restaurants in La Mesa.

    Was so looking forward to this. Have wanted to try BoBeau for a long time. Pretty disappointed. Service was very good and friendly but food so-do. Lobster bisque was delish but the cheese on the flatbread was overpowering and tasted off. Husband had the scallops which were way over spiced (hot spicy) without acknowledgement of that on the menu. There was a street fair and spotlights shining.right into the restaurant - in my face at the table. They had no way to block it. I was a good sport but way over it by the end of dinner. To boot…when we got the bill, there was a $2 charge for “rocks” in each cocktail. Really, charge for the ice? They corrected it but I wonder how long no one noticed and they got away with it. I usually think I can count on Cohen restaurants but not the case any more.

    We were disappointed as the food was bland. We brought guests as Bo Beau's food is normally very good. The ceviche was dry. The ribeye, potatoes and veggies needed seasoning so did the halibut entree. They brought out a nice complimentary dessert for our friend's birthday - little chocolate volcano cake needed salt.

    Cocktails and dinner was great. The service from David was top notch. Bacon wrapped filet was the best. Halibut was good but needed more sauce and less rice. Save room for dessert, the Twisted Elvis is the bomb.

    Thanksgiving dinner - on this occasion where the meal is themed around turkey - the turkey was dry, very little gravy, very little cranberry, the mashed potatoes were dry and the broccoli was undercooked so that I couldn’t cut through the stem with my knife. I wasn’t honest with the waiter, didn’t feel like complaining - all the other entrees were delicious, the steak, seafood were very good! We ordered additional herbal stuffing, they brought out potatoes instead and when we reminded that we ordered stuffing they said they were out. They said the potatoes wouldn’t be charged for. The squash soup was described as made with spicy pumpkin seeds - no hint of that, the flavor was rather bland and uninteresting. The salad was great. The service was exceptional, our waiter was 100% attentive and fresh water regularly. The outdoor ambiance was very good: attractive and quiet. >> The washrooms were all full, staff showed us a second set and they were just as bad - the 12-15minute wait was very disappointing especially because the fellow who came out of the one I used was staff. << Overall I’d recommend to others, the high quality of the majority of the entrees is the main reason I’d return. Thank you for an enjoyable evening

    Based on the reviews, we went to this restaurant with high hopes. I also like to support small and local restaurants; so we were excited about this too. Unfortunately, we had extremely poor service and our meal was below average. Our soup came over 30 minutes after we ordered it and was served cool - not warm or hot. We also had to request spoons for our soup as the staff wasn't able to figure out this need on their own. Our main courses came at 65 minutes after we ordered them and were warm, not hot, and dry. My wine glass sat on the table EMPTY for 48 minutes before one of the managers finally noticed and asked if I'd like a refill. When the desserts finally came, we were looking forward to their "special" apple pie, but it was served dry and cold with ice cream on the side; the least they could have done was put it in a microwave first. As we waited and grumbled, we also noticed that other tables were equally as frustrated. The only shining spot in our experience is that one of the managers showed great concern for our issues and did her best to try and improve our experience, at the end; but unfortunately it was too late. I'm not sure if this restaurant was simply having a bad night or needs to retrain (or dismiss) its staff. But we won't be returning and we'll be telling our friends about this experience.

    They were slammed on Thanksgiving evening but the service was still good and the food so worth the wait. Room a little noisy but love that it's in the old Ford dealership, the big windows are cool. Can't wait to go back and try the garden for lunch

    Service was great. Hostess seamed a bit overwhelmed but they were pretty busy. Management was great constantly walking around to make sure everyone was happy and business was running smoothly. The food was amazing, a little pricey but worth every penny. We will definitely be back had a great time.
