I took myself on an impromptu date. Bo beau’s was recommended to me by my boss and I was greatly pleased. The patio provided an open air feeling while maintaining privacy. I enjoyed my drink, the beau spritz was a great refreshing drink and the pork belly flat bread pizza was a just enough to fill me up. The waitress was more than amazing. She made sure I had everything I needed but she didn’t make me feel like I was being rushed out. I would definitely recommend bo beau’s to my friends and I would go back.

Would be nice if there was a band playing preferably jazz (old standards). Chicken not tasty but
great idea to have waffle and fried chicken and the presentation was great. You could have
fruit like strawberries on table.

We sat outside which was awesome on a warm summer night. Great ambiance until a large cockaroach crawled next to our table ledge that was next to a tree pot as we were finishing dinner. Lost my appetite and couldn’t stop thinking bugs were on me!

Food, wine and server were great need to get rid of the creatures!

One out of 5 of us enjoyed their dinner... but only after having sent it back because the steak was so salty. The Brussels sprouts other reviews raved about were burnt big sprouts with little flavor. The (pork something) flat bread was really good. That's it! I can't remember ever being this critical of a restaurant but truly it was over priced over salted food!

We have been to BO-Beau multiple time as it is one of our favorite restaurants. The Brussel sprouts are the best!!
We went last week for the Clambake they had on special and it was amazing!! I hope to see that come back soon as it was great food sold at a great price.

Birthday dinner for my daughter. Everyone loved their entrees. We also really enjoyed the roasted jalapeño deviled eggs and the lavender honey goat cheese.

We have been to Bo Beau’s twice now, once for dinner and then for Sunday brunch. Skip brunch as the food is very pedestrian. Soft scrambled eggs were hard scrambled, the beignets were so disappointing I could cry. None of the three of us liked breakfast. Dinner however was great. Delicious burger and the beef bourginon was really good. So dinner yes, breakfast, find another place. Wait staff are very good folks.

We have eaten here before many times and like it a lot. Unfortunately, the table we sat at was so unstable, and the one next to it. We finally ended up moving a large table not split us that was even. So, might want to get that little thing fixed up. Otherwise, the food was great, the service very sweet and it has a fun vibe to it. Love the mix of ages from kids to dogs.

We had an early light dinner on the patio. The shrimp flatbread and goat cheese app were both delicious. Our server was great and we had a lovely experience.

From start to finish, the experience was wonderful. The Brussels sprouts are so decadent and if they don't say, know that you can get a half portion. The full portion is quite large. We saw other people get it. Sit outside if you can. They have done a great job with their patio and dogs are allowed on the patio. Great food. Great service. Great ambience. Very highly recommended.

Food was fabulous. I had the steak and frites with blue cheese topping. Best I’ve ever had. Fried chicken was also a hit as was the sprouts appetizer. New Chef?

My only negative is that your prices with service charge are just
getting high for dining out on a regular basis

3 dirty plates and then 2 dirty plates after reporting it.

Long wait for food to come out with low occupancy.

Surprised on this experience considering we go to many CRG restaurants. It was not up to expectations.

We really wanted to like this place and have given them multiple chances as we had a wonderful time on a few occasions in the past. Lately though food is inconsistent and lacking in flavor. Service is hit or miss, sometimes it’s good, sometimes our server disappears for the whole meal. Outdoor seating is physically painful, the booths have no high back, so you can’t lean back. We have let management know of our issues, but nothing ever changes. We are done with this place for good.

Went to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. While the food was delicious the timing was way off. Server took our order for drinks and appetizers and the apps arrived 5 minutes later, well before we got our drinks or even a glass of water! Menus were still in front of us as plates started arriving. The server seemed surprised but then again our dinner items started coming out before we were finished with our appetizers. When I spend $200 on a dinner, I’d like to be able to take a little time to enjoy the meal. Disappointing.

Dined outdoors in lovely garden setting. Onion soup is a must. The fish of the day was superbly prepared. Crispy outer skin and light and flakey on the inside. Friendly atmosphere.

Street market day ... made reservations showed up 15 minutes late due to parking issues and they allowed us to keep our original reservation. Kids plus 4 adults. Wait staff was busy but attentive and kept us in the normal rotation. 3rd time here and we enjoyed it once again. Thank you and highly recommend it for a toddler .. outdoor seating is a must so the kids can go run around the bus

Located in the heart of La Mesas downtown area, Bo beau is la great spot. It’s a large restaurant, with a large enclosed, but spacious patio area. The menu is well balanced, with plenty of healthy, flavorful choices, and some sides that they are know for. They have a few delicious non alcoholic drinks, which I appreciated. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We went on a Friday, for an early dinner after the farmers market. Parking was a little difficult because of the market, but it’s such a great area to walk around in so I didn’t mind the walk.

The inside seating in this restaurant does not provide for a private conversation. The tables are way to close to each other and the noise level from the street and music can be very loud. I also had to send my salmon order back to the kitchen as it came out absolutely raw. The BO-beau in OB is so different. Always great. This location not so much.

Great date spot. Had Yummo food again. We tried different dishes this time . But started with half order of roasted Brussels and ordered the roasted cauliflower. I had the pot roast dish and my husband had the shrimp pasta dish. Can’t recall the names of them. But the only dishes like this on menu. Very tasty, we both enjoyed them.
