Bobo's is a stylish destination for the most exquisite steak and crab in the City. With antiqued red walls, colored glass light fixtures and tablecloths, the restaurant is like a plush Venetian jewel box. Executive Chef Andrea Froncillo has created a delectable menu that showcases his signature Italian-Asian fusion. The steak is USDA certified prime beef, dry-aged four to six weeks - longer than anywhere else on the West Coast! The crab is Dungeness, harvested from the Pacific Ocean and roasted in a savory garlic-butter sauce that is positively addicting.

We booked this on Open Table at the last minute for an early dinner. We were definitely early as the restaurant was empty when we arrived. We got a great table on the top floor overlooking the street with the entire floor to ourselves. We started with cocktails, I had the basil cocktail and daughter had the blood orange margarita. Good drinks, but nothing to write home about. We followed up the cocktails with some wine by the glass. For dinner we ordered the crab bisque, Cesar salad, full crab, 9 oz filet, mac & cheese, and chard. Salad was real good, bisque was good and full of crab. Filet was the highlight of the meal (according to my daughter) - she quickly finished it. Chard and Mac & cheese were tasty. Crab was a little dry, but still good. As we ate, our dining room filled with other patrons and the restaurant was completely full when we finished.

Service was top notch. They were very professional, not pushy, and great with wine recommendations. The water glass never went empty as someone always refilled it.

I’d definitely consider returning here the next time in San Francisco. Looks like a great place for a daddy/daughter dinner as well as a romantic dinner for a couple.

The bone-in filet was tender, juicy and cooked perfectly. Sides of twice baked potato and mac-n-cheese were delicious too. Service was excellent. Seated promptly even though we were 30 minutes early. We appreciated the great wine suggestion by our waiter. He offered dessert but we were full. We will definitely be back.

Service was very poor. Seems like that they might changed some staff since I've been here a few years ago. Very bad. Gave a very bad feeling. Like we were being judged. Did not expect that from this restaurant. As we have been here in the past. The waitress gave us a lot of attitude and gave us the feeling like we don't belong here. It took them forever for service like we were being ignored. It took 20 minutes to bring the dessert menu. And that was only after we went out and saw her chatting with other coworkers and chilling by the bar. Then it took forever to bring the bill. The service was just very badz really didn't expect it from this place. What a bummer. Because we've been here numerous times in the past for many years. But Won't be back again.

Service was excellent and the staff were great all the way around. Neat little place with some pretty whimsical decor. Ordered the bone in ribeye and portabello mushrooms. My wife ordered the bone in filet and Brussels sprouts. The mushrooms were far and away the best dish and were nearly perfect with amazing flavor. My wife’s filet was cooked perfectly and tasted quite good, but the seasoning left a little to be desired. The Brussels sprouts were soggy and neither of us really preferred the flavor. The ribeye was cooked exactly as ordered, but lacked even more in the seasoning department than the filet. It seemed to have almost no seasoning. The food wasn’t bad, but was pretty run of the mill for a steakhouse and I feel I can get much better value at other places.

Excellent food and great service. This was our first visit and was recommended by fans. We were pleasantly greater and served steaks that were cooked to perfection. The seafood arrived hot and sizzling on a platter. Definitely a place for special occasions. A special destination spot for meat eaters.

Our friend Brian treated four of us. No special occasion. The filet was the best I’ve ever eaten.
I wasn’t paying but noticed the prices our high but so is the quality.
I had two lemon drop martinis and they were perfect!!
Two of us ordered coffee and it took a while and when we got them they weren’t hot. Not a big deal but our server gladly adjusted our bill.

Not bad steak and seafood but for the price, I'd rather spend money elsewhere. You spend so much and get so little. House of prime rib which is close by, is a much better value for the money. They at least include salad and sides with their dishes. I can understand not including them here if the food was outstanding but that is not the case. It was above average at best.
