As always dining at Beau Bo's Garden in La Mesa is very enjoyable. We wanted something great for our "last measl" before they closed things down. Happy hour did not disappoint!

We took the best spot on the patio furthest from the entrance, in the corner. It felt very private and was safely distanced. Staff was attentive and the food was cooked to perfection. The meats were tender and flavorful. I enjoyed the sauce with the salmon the most. Half the table ordered and raved about the Our Pink Lady signature cocktail. Plates and drinks were in good propotion.

Their burger is amazing, but really everything we've had here is great. Try the mussels if you're into them... Just like being in Belgium or France.

Went for Tuesday Date Night. Food was great and wine choices covered the preferences of a wide range of tastes. Heaters kept the area warm, even though we were outside.

The service was excellent, the out door seating and environment was excellent.

Brussel Sprouts were as remembered from pre-covid; very good

The green salad was warm, wilted and barely edible; I think the salad blend was 98% wilted - warm arugula. It was the only green salad available on the menu.

The pork-back with BBQ sauce flat bread, was not great. The bits of pork was great, the sauce was too sweet and had no depth in the flavor. There is so much more that can be done with this great pork back with a more interesting and flavorful sauce...

They did take great care of us, and will go back

My best friend and I were celebrating our October birthdays and the manager comped both desserts without us even asking! It just shows how much they appreciate their customers! The food and dessert absolutely delicious!

BoBeau is always so great for a dinner out. The wait staff are so friendly and helpful. All locations are enjoyable. It was the first time at the La Mesa BoBeau and everthing was perfect - wonderful patio area.

I had eaten here before. The server was constantly coming up right from the beginning till the end. I was about to ask, "Do you need the table"??
I was celebrating a birthday, let the reservation know this!! I was brought the check even before an offer of coffee or the dessert!!!
Very disappointing

I would keep the wine in a cooler place. You categorize your wine menu by cheap, decent, good and very good, we ordered from the good list, I don't remember which wine it was, but I would categorize it on the decent list, and it was warm, which was unpleasant.
Other than that the food was excellent, loved everything!!

The service was phenomenal, the place continues to feel like an upscale bistro in the middle of La Mesa, but the menu has changed dramatically. Many of the old favorites are gone which is a big disappointment. We used to come here five or six times a year, we have decided to look for someplace new.

Love the ambiance of the patio and the service was excellent. The food seems a little over priced, but is good and I like eating there as a splurge on occasion.

Nice patio. Did not course our food properly so one person was done before the other started. Food was just ok- all dishes could use more spice/flavor.

Bo-Beau's is doing a great job with protocols for COVID (nice open-air garden with tables spaced out and plastic dividers, wait staff in masks, etc.). But they have increased their prices and added a 4% surcharge on top of it. We are not likely to be back, unfortunately, unless someone else is treating!

The food was terrible and overpriced!
To say nothing of being charged a 4% tax so that Mr. and Mrs. Cohn could avoid having to pay their restaurants staff the current minimum wage!
We ordered calamari and received a skillet of small dry cut up sausage with a few small dry pieces calamari!
We do not recommend this restaurant!

Having a reservation was great as we were seated on the patio at one of the intimate tables with dividers! The service was great, friendly staff. Disappointed in the French Onion soup, and bread pudding. Moscow mule was yummy!
Over all it was a wonderful evening... feeling safe!

My experience was okay. Hostess wasn't particularly friendly; didn't acknowledge our party so much as just walked us to the table and dumped us there. There was no 'how is your evening' etc. Our waitress was pleasant however on two different occasion the food runner brought us someone's else entrée. At some point the manager (I think it was the manager) came by and asked us how we were doing and if she could get us anything. We ordered another cocktail. When the waitress came to check on us it was apparent that that was not communicated between the manager and the waitress. Overall the experience was okay but towards the end of the night it seemed like she totally forgot us as we were waiting to order dessert. Again the waitress was very pleasant but in general there were some issues with the service (miscommunications/disorganized). As we were leaving the the hostesses (different ones) were very friendly; acknowledged us by actually looking at us and wished us a good evening.
