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 had the petite filet mignon with a whole crab that the two of shared. The steak, ordered Medium Rare, was perfectly cooked and tasted awesome. It was served bare and alone on a plate, though, so be ready for that type of presentation.
Our server was attentive and very experienced, though every sentence felt scripted. Nevertheless, the service was without flaws.

While it was good food, it wasn't great food. Not an intimate dining experience, very loud and slightly cramped. I felt the beef needed more seasoning during the deglazing process.

I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary. The seats we got with reservations was horrible that sat us in the bar area. People were just crowding around us jus to be in this small area . And the price of the food didn’t make sense considering the environment and setting . I would not recommend this place to anyone.

We came from Las Vegas visiting for Valentine's Day and decided upon this place for dinner, because of the reviews on Yelp. I made reservations 2 months earlier for 7:15. When we got there at 7:10, the hostess told me they were running really late behind, so we could sit at the bar which was right behind the hostess stand. The bar was packed and there was only a side table to sit at. People were standing all over the bar like sardines. Wait staff that were passing us, and people in the bar with food, would hit the tables (that we were sitting on) or we would have to duck not to be hit by the trays. We finally got sat at 8:15 (an hour later). I ordered a filet mignon and crab legs. I've honestly had better at Outback Steakhouse. I was so excited to come here and experience great San Francisco dining, but customer service and food were very disappointing. My advice, go somewhere else and spend your money on food and ambiance that is worth it. Don't believe the hype, because celebrity pictures are posted.

We ordered a medium new Yorker and a mussel and shrimp. The steak was OK but expected something more juicier. The mussel is bad, some of them aren't fresh, some of them are overcooked(burnt and dried) wouldn't recommend it at all.

Best steak hands down. Super Bone in filet was so tasty. Lobster Mac n cheese was super good too. Sat upstairs and it was quiet but it was an early dinner.

I've been to Bobo's with the guys and loved it so much that I had to bring my wife to share!!! I took advantage of Valentines Day and brought my wife the Saturday before for a romantic dinner. The table we sat at was a little small for two people but we made the best of it. Started off with a Grey Goose Martini, straight up, extra dirty with three olives....... the bartender hit the mark!!! The Martini was terrific!! Next up were appetizers: We ordered the Filet al crudo which is prepared at table side. Let me say that's one of my favorite appetizers ever!!! My wife was a little reluctant in trying raw egg yolk and raw meat (tar tar) but after building up a little courage (and luck) she loved the appetizer, we also ordered the crispy crab cakes and without the cranberry relish, they would be just crab cakes. The cranberries really kicked off the dish! Next was the apple, walnut sun-dried cranberries salad with a vinaigrette and it didn't let us down. The salad was crisp (wedge style cut) with blue cheese and a tasty vinaigrette along with candied walnuts. It was very refreshing.....
Then came the pie'ce de resistance!!! Filet Mingon for my wife and Bone in Filet Mignon for me..... both cuts were cooked to our liking and were tender and tasty. Aged to perfection. The sides were ModMac and Brussel Sprouts which were terrific. I brought a bottle of estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon from Crooked Vine (Livermore Valley) and it shined with the steak. Overall we will be visiting Bobo's again very soon!!!

I have an annual dinner with a group of friends here. The food is always excellent. Our seating arrangement this year wasn't ideal but everything else was fantastic.

It was good but not great and I wouldnt go back. Steak was luke warm, crab was fishy, waiter was so so. Cute ambiance and nice valet parking offered. Very expensive for the quality. Not my favorite steakhouse experience.
