Steak
"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-Owner Andrea Froncillo has created a delectable menu that showcases his signature steak and seafood creations. The steak is USDA certified prime beef, dry-aged four to six weeks - longer than anywhere else on the West Coast! Our award winning bone in filet was the 1st 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

While our server was great, the food itself was definitely overpriced for the quality we received. We got the crab & spinach dip as an appetizer and for over $20, we expected way more crab than just a few small pieces. We also got a couple of steaks and we were definitely disappointed with the quality of them- they were chewy, dry, and bit very flavorful- it definitely made us want some sort of sauce to cover it up.

If you’re going to go for a nice steak dinner, I’d spend a little bit more and go to Alexander’s or Nikki steakhouse. It’s not worth it to spend $200+ for a dinner that’s just mediocre

Wonderful and prompt service. The food was delicious and the "doneness" was completed to our specifications. I'd go there again.

I've been to Bobo's multiple times before but for some reason this time around the food just wasn't so great. We ordered the prime rib (lacked flavor and it wasn't hot), Portor House (I've had better and again, the steak or plate was not hot), Cesar salad (definitely not worth $14. It was similar to a packaged cesar salad that you would get from Safeway), & the sides were not the best either. The creamy spinach was way too cheesy and did not contain enough spinach. The Mac n Cheese was basic and the best side was the garlic mashed potatoes. After my last visit, I, unfortunately, have decided to not to go back.

This restaurant is a hidden gem for great steak, crabs -- and mussels. By the way, they ought to add the mussels to the crab and steak on their sign. They are fantastic, sizzling hot with delicious bread! What a treat. Definitely one of my favorites in the city.

We went for a birthday and got the seafood platter for a starter with the well known bone in filet. The filet was one of the best pieces of meat I’ve had in recent memory. The seafood was great - highly recommend crab - and service was excellent.

I came to Bobo’s to celebrate my birthday and I’m glad I did. The easy to find location and parking on site was already a great start to the experience. I’m not usually one eat out at restaurants that show up with three dollar signs on Yelp or google due to my somewhat frugal nature, but I figured I’d splurge a bit for my birthday. Upon arriving we were greeted by a the host who quickly showed us to our table, the decor inside seems to be masquerade themed which gives the restaurant a unique feel. There was 80’s music playing in the background (which I loved) and it gave the restaurant a very classic and comfortable ambiance. After being seated service was friendly, professional and efficient. As for the food, the bone-in filet mignon was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had and every side was delicious. The drinks were also strong but still balanced. Overall Bobo’s is a staple of San Francisco dining for a reason; it isn’t the fanciest or most trendy restaurant in the city, but it feels like one of the most classic. The food and experience you have here will stick with you and I definitely know I’ll be coming back soon.

The bone in filet is what we come for and it never disappoints. Melt in your mouth. Our server Jose was delightful. The only hiccup was dessert. The dunce cones were awesome as usual but the creme brûlée was like liquid. The top wasn’t hard and the custard was not set. Other than that love Bobo’s.

Great steaks including the bone-in filet. Bread service extra $$$ but good. Dated interior. Still, like keeping the money to a real individual business than a chain. Would definitely recommend.

Went for a special occasion, but the food is way overpriced like most restaurants these days. 2 people was over $260 with only one glass of wine ordered. There was a family with 3 young children next to us that were constantly making a lot of noise and crying as well which dampened our experience.

We were very happy with our choice to go to BoBo's for dinner. Since Covid19 we have not eaten out at an upscale restaurant - only take out food, but we felt very comfortable on their patio up above Lombard Street. Upon entering the restaurant we had to show our immunization card together with our picture ID. We were very pleased to have this protection. Masks were also required. Thank you BoBo's for an exceptional meal and the protection.

Cocktails and salad were fine, but steak was very boring and underwhelming. Crab was yummy but sauce was overpowering. Nothing was inventive. Super tacky and dated decor. Service was good. You can do much better in San Francisco.

Don’t go! This place used to be a 10
What happened? 80 dollar steak was dry and had no flavor. Everything we had was terrible. We spent $450 for three and it was 300 dollars overpriced. Dungeoness crab was worst I ever had for 64 dollars
Our Brunello was delicious. Probably because they had nothing to do with it except open it. People next to us ordered the Branzino. They made this fish look prehistoric. The woman was horrified. Horrible food.
