Bo Beau has a great ambiance in their garden seating and the best Brussels sprouts ever.

I’ve tried a number of times and I
Am yet to be impressed. Service is awful food is adequate and prices are ridiculaous for what you’re served. Cohen’s take advantage of people wherever they own.

Ordering the basics ( burgers, flatbread, Brussels sprouts) resulted in the usual decent quality (if somewhat uninspired) food.
Poor service began upon entering when we were shown to the worst tables in the restaurant in spite of it being half empty. When requesting better ones, we were told they were reserved even though we had reservations. BTW, many of those “reserved” tables were still empty when we left. When I stated that we would probably just leave, the hostess told us we could have any table in the bar which we took. Our server was disinterested, aloof and rarely available. I had to go back to the hostess stand to ask them to find her for us so we could order.
The above is really too bad since we are locals and like to patronize neighborhood spots. If this experience is a trend, I doubt the Cohn group will continue to support it’s existence.

Service inattentive. Party with a dog..pet, not service.., and baby watching noisy iPad seated next to us. Food was bland. Even though we had mentioned it on our reservation, they didn't seem to be aware of us celebrating anything.

Excellent, though towards the end, around 9 pm, some other customers allowed their children (3-4 of them) to run noisily around the patio. This has happened at other times, too, so it must be okay with the management.

We had a small gathering for our 6 year old son’s birthday. Love the change in the menu... Brussel sprouts are the favorite and enjoyed the crispy chicken and pear/beet salad. My son loves dining outdoors as they have a fun school bus and giant chalk board for kids to play with. The service was exceptional! They even played the cake and cupcakes that we brought in for us!

The food was nothing special, I didn’t like the they charge you 3% aditional to the tax, the tea was horrible and I drink tea in a daily basis so for me to say it was horrible it was.
I ordered the poached eggs and they look like Nacho eggs , and they put some kind of species that you can’t tasted anything else.
Overall horrible overpriced no coming back

I love this restaurant, it's a great addition to the increasingly hip and happening Village La Mesa! The food is very good and the ambience is very nice. As a former waiter and bartender, I appreciate good service and this place has great bartenders, hostesses, servers, and even bussers. Thanks BoBeau!

My husband and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary here. We had a wonderful experience! We dined on the patio at about 7:30pm on a Sunday and although there were several other parties throughout the restaurant, we felt like we had the place to ourselves. Our waiter was extremely attentive and informative although we later found out that his 'regular' job was bartending but you wouldn't have known it. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and dessert but most of all the ambiance. This was our second time eating here for a special occasion and we will definitely return ~ thank you!

We've been to BO+beau in La Mesa several times and have enjoyed it there very much. The food and service have been great. We took my mom for her birthday most recently and I was confident that she would enjoy her meal. Must tries are the crispy Brussels sprouts and the pumpkin bread pudding. The pumpkin dessert was seasonal, but they usually have a bread pudding on the menu. So good!

I have been here twice now, once with a close friend and another time with my husband. This place was perfect spot for both occasions! I love the location, the ambiance, the fact that it is quiet enough to have conversation, but not so quiet that others can hear you and the food is great! I have yet to explore much of the menu as I have come for light dinners and can't seem to make it past the brussel sprouts! So far, my +1 and I have split the brussel sprouts plate then shared a decadent dessert (this time it was a berry cheesecake). I think the trick is to invite more people to come along with me so I don't fill up on the famous brussel sprouts! The iced tea is so refreshing as well. I'll definitely be back!

The Brussel sprouts are to die for. That's about it. The wine was $12 a glass! What?! This is La Mesa not La Jolla. Flank steak was undercooked. French fries were so so. The fried chicken was cooked with oil that probably hadn't been changed in a while. Good ambiance but the food, service and price are really not worth it.

We both had the salmon main course....absolutely wonderful. We were there on a Tuesday evening which was a quiet evening instead of the normal loud and bustling atmosphere. We found it just right for a quiet dinner for the two of us. Also the next time I go I will try the Tuesday Tostada special that looked very interesting. Of note is that they have a wonderful patio for dining.

Excellent food, very attentive service and dog friendly. Our puppy got her own water bowl and some treats. Perfect evening for sitting out on the patio and quiet enough for a group of 5 to enjoy conversation. Cocktails, cheese board and catch of the day were all top notch. Wished for more vegetarian options, but our guest made do with a beet salad. Definitely recommend.
