About Bobo Restaurant

Bobo is the elder sibling of Carlos Suarez's Casa Nela group, that includes the Village hits, Rosemary's and Claudette. The place is easy to miss as the entrance is downstairs, but walking in off the busy corner at W10th and 7th Ave, guests are transported to a chic French country home, with a sizable bar area, a parlor level dining room and a gorgeous year-round garden.

The restaurant serves dinner and weekend brunch, offering classic French country cooking lightened for their West Village neighbors - plump tomato farcie, enlivened with a pork shoulder stuffing, fregola sarda risotto with chantrelles, and bistro stand-by's like oysters and steak tartare with shoestring frites.

The bar program is strong - this is where a number of the city's best bartenders have worked - and currently Aaron Thorp (Le Coucou) is running the drinks program that includes a vermouth piscine.

I've gone for brunch a few times now and the food and service is out of this world. My friend comes to visit from another country often and this is becoming our must go to when we meet up!

What a wonderful evening at Bobo. We were a party of 4 and really enjoyed both the service and the food. The wine choices were extensive and reasonably priced for nyc. Appetizers and entrees were very good although I found dessert a bit disappointing. Our waiter was fabulous and helped our party feel comfortable and welcome. All said it was a lovely evening.

The menu is fairly small but you can't go wrong. The ambiance is wonderful for a date or anniversary ...definitely worth going for a special occasion. Mark, our waiter was one of the best I have ever had. His wine parings with our selections were tremendous. The food was well prepared and presented as well as delicious. The thought out into every element of this restaurant was well thought out, and the results clearly show it. Magnifique!

They were out of our first two wine bottle choices and we weren't notified in a timely fashion, so we didn't receive drinks until we had already received our food. We also didn't get a comp of any kind for the hiccups, which would've been appreciated since we had to continually go up in price due to the bottles being unavailable. Our waitress was alone for her shift and had about ten tables. Didn't allow for great service. And unfortunately the food itself wasn't great either. The restaurant is ADORABLE upstairs though - so if you're looking for good ambience, check it out.

PERFECT Exceeded my expectations. Love when that happens. Waiter, Mike, was outstanding, quite a personality... Oysters were perfect, briny, fresh. Bobo salad fresh, great goat cheese, cheese platter nice opening and steak tartare right on the money. Duck was one of the best I've ever had , very small portion but packed with flavor and I'd get it again. Pasta special was tasty with fresh basil, steak au poive cooked perfectly with a great green peppercorn sauce and the sea base was fresh, cooked perfectly. Bread and butter were perfect. Deserts were full of flavor, fabulous sorbet, especially the pear flavor, chocolate mousse perfect and the strawberrys and cream were delightful. Great bottle of Rose champagne and after dinner drinks topped it off. Congratulations to the owner, chef, waiters, you hit the nail right on the head. PERFECT

We went to Bobo during restaurant week. First I will say ALL staff I interacted with were professional and very friendly. I would return just because of the staff. I arrived early and had a delicious specialty drink, Bohemian Bourgeois, that was refreshing and delicious on a hot humid night. When my friend and I were seated we were NEVER RUSHED to order, to dine or to leave. We were both satisfied with our meals, and having told our waiter early on that I was celebrating something, my dessert was delivered with a little candle and congratulations....a nice touch. We will undoubtedly return.

I came here for Restaurant week dinner in the Summer of 2017. The food was good and the portions were ample. The servers and manager recognized us from our last visit on Father's Day and they treated us like old friends. Their warmness, attention to detail plus quality and interesting fare will have us returning in the near future.

One of our favourite NY Restaurants we have eaten at many times. This night was spoiled by a terrible waiter who basically ignored us on a night that was a special occasion, we were visiting from out of town. Sent Bobo's a note , had a reply apologizing and asking to make it up to us but we had plans every other night in NY. They then did just like in person and ignored the situation, any small gesture would have worked for us...we are not unreasonable and understand one bad night does not make a restaurant. Very disappointed in the whole situation and don't think we or any of our friends will be back. Too bad as the food is some of the best we have had in NY.

This was the best meal I've ever had, hands down. The quality of the food, the service, the ambiance...everything was top notch. The menu does change some seasonally, but I can highly recommend the tuna tartare, the octopus, the salmon, the duck and the chicken. The wine list is well curated, and the desserts are delicious. The Mars Bar in particular is incredible. Chef Cedric Tovar is a master, and we had a perfect evening.

I live in the hood and have been meaning to try Bobo. Food a little uneven--but the salmon fillettes was divine--spicy silk. The chicken was on the ordinary side, but the rest of it, the gnocchi in particular, was very good--Maybe the fact that it was restaurant week and we went with that menu translated into the prefab chicken. Nevertheless, a chef with pride won't ever show his or her contempt and takes every opportunity to display his culinary gifts. The lemon merengue tart is addictive, and I can see myself returning for it. We were enchanted by the garden room with its clear roof and climbing, flowering vines, wood shingles on one side and old brick on the other, and the lovely paper lanterns floating overhead--it did feel as though we were getting away from it all. Too bad that such a lovely ambience was almost spoiled by ten raucous screaming young women. My friend and I had a hard time communicating over the din, and the management did nothing to remind these ten women of their manners. The acoustics were not great in that plexiglass-domed room. Our waitress, though, was particularly lovely, low key and accommodating--truly a great waitperson. So, it all depends on the night I guess. Forget going during restaurant week.

We had a lovely meal with our three adult children, celebrating imminent job changes. Most had dishes off the restaurant week menu which was predictably more limited than the full menu but still offered a good selection of their regular offerings. The food was uniformly delicious and well-presented. The service was superb and the surroundings very pleasant.

One of the nicest dining experiences I've had in some time. Delicious food and wine - everything from special salad (w grilled peaches and heirloom tomatoes sources from their farm upstate) to duck entree to desert (and lovely light Provencal Rose) were pitch perfect. Outstanding service. Garden seating that was both cozy and light and airy. Loved the decor in the garden area, main dining room and even the restroom. Great Jazz at just the right volume. Great for a date or an evening among friends.

After recommending Bobo to several friends and clients, simply based off of recommendations I had received from others, I finally had the chance to wine and dine at Bobo myself. The experience was so much more than I could have imagined. Mark, our server, was fun, engaging and made the entire night one that I will be raving about to even more friends and clients. From the service to the food to the perfect bottle of wine Mark recommended, I cannot wait to come back to do it all over again!

I've been to Bobo several times given its convenient West Village locale, great bar downstairs and lovely dining room ambiance. But this week's experience was superb. Mark, our server, was his glorious self. Funny, smart and intelligent with the wine offerings and food recommendations. I wanted fish and he suggested the wild salmon, a new item on the menu. It was delicious -- a true taste treat -- different than any salmon dish I've had at many a restaurant. Kudos to the chef!! The manager, Edward, and new general manager (I believe his name his Zack) were also charming and gracious. I look forward to whatever new stylings they bring to Bobo in making the restaurant that much more of a destination.

Our server was quite sarcastic, but, not offensive. The only negative comment is that the food portions was extremely small. What was on the menu as a chicken breast and leg, was only a slice of the breast and the leg was mixed into a "croquette" type of presentation. Overpriced for the amount of food that was served! We were also told that we were served - and paid for - dinner sized appetizers. If that was the case, we would have ordered the appetizer items and shared a few at the table. I thought that Nouvelle Cuisine was passé?
We liked the atmosphere and would go back now that we know how and what to order from the menu.

Such a gem. Beautiful old townhouse in the heart of the Village. Tasty cocktails, delicious dinner (especially the duck), romantic dining room. But what really made the evening (our anniversary dinner) special was the service. Because of a subway delay, we arrived late but the maitre d' was kind enough to hold our table for us. After being seated next to a nice (but loud) younger couple on what was apparently their first date, we asked if we could possibly move to a more quiet spot. Even though it was a busy Saturday night, the maitre d' found us a cozy table next to the fireplace. After that, we had one of the best anniversary dinners we've ever had. The food was delicious but Bobo's excellent service really made the difference. We're looking forward to going back again.
