We love the Bo-Beau restaurant in OB, so for Thanksgiving we visited the new Bo-beau kitchen in Hillcrest. Note, that it was a prix fixe menu that night because it was a holiday. However, the food was not of high quality, my husband's rib eye was so thin and very average. My turkey dinner was dry and not very good. It was definitely a disappointment. We really enjoy Island Prime and Indigo Grill and the OB Bo-beau restaurant, so it was a let down that this location was below par.

It was very loud.. had a hard time hearing each other. They have a 4% surcharge they add to every bill.. when your spending $300. It adds up. We went for Thanksgiving. I don't feel the portions were worth $46. I finished my meal in about 5 minutes. Service was great. Food overall was really good. Probably won't go back. It's just too expensive

Have always enjoyed dining here, until last Saturday.
Spotty service, weak strange tasting iced tea with a large dead bug floating in it.
We were not asked if we wanted something else to drink. We were charged for the tea.

We had very slow service. My food was too salty and cold. I had the scallops. Seems the waitress was trying to get us to keep ordering cocktails.

We were pleasantly surprised by Bo-beau. Everything was outstanding, four people and four clean plates by the end. I can't recommend the burger highly enough, very possibly the best in San Diego. Their potato gratin is also intensely decadent and delicious with a great crispy exterior. Our servers were knowledgeable and friendly and the back patio area was quiet and cozy.

Our one gripe was about Cache (the attached bar, not really related to the restaurant experience). We had hoped to grab a drink next door after, since it was previously a great speakeasy-style cocktail bar. The blasting club music and lighter decor turned us away though

Food is good, been there a few times. I do think it is a bit pricey.
Need to switch up the menu a bit as well.
Generally a nice place to go and eat.

Great experience! Quiet enough to enjoy conversation, super friendly and attentive waiters, and a happy vibe. My friends had scallops and lobster risotto that they loved. I had mussels and fries. The mussels were so good.

We were there for the first night of restaurant week and the wait staff was very helpful and accommodating to us in helping with some requested substitutions. The food was amazingly delicious. The restaurant was very quaint and comfortable, yet also hip and stylish. We had a most enjoyable experience and would highly recommend this restaurant.

We went to Bo Beau's to try their End of Summer Clambake. Super glad we did. All 4 of us ordered it and we left very satisfied and happy we had come. Great pot of shellfish. Bye the way a second glass of wine was .10, thats right TEN CENTS! WOW.

We also had Lava cake for dessert and all of us thoroughly enjoyed.

Service was great Brooks took care of our every need, even reminding us about the parking meters.

Food was barely lukewarm when arriving at table. Tartare was overdressed with mustard and had sinews so was not properly chopped/butchered. Caesar was good...love the white anchovies. I went to the location in Point Loma years ago a few times and loved it. Unfortunately this location did not live up to my fond memories of this restaurant, seems the quality has gone down.

Bo Beau is always great for dinner, but they missed the mark a bit for brunch. My breakfast was OK, and we had to keep asking for things like butter, syrup, jam, and water... not the usual level of service or quality. Probably just an off morning since we were one of the first to arrive for the day.

We’ve eaten here before and also at the La Mesa location, and have always enjoyed it.

Our food was very good, as always, but this time service was not up to par. Our waiter misheard or misunderstood our wine order, which is not a huge deal, it happens all the time. If there was any question about what was being ordered he should have cleared it up on the spot, but he didn’t. But then he proceeded to act as if it was my dining companion’s fault. It wasn’t.

After that he seemed to ignore us for the rest of the evening. Everything was really slow.

I would go back again, because it was good food. I especially loved the butter cake but I wouldn’t want that same waiter.

Back patio was great, as was food. Scallops recommended. We went next door to the speakeasy after dinner, and that was fun. Enter through the Mexican restaurant next door and go thru the big refrigerator door into a 20s wonderland.
