About

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.

Wife's Invisalign accidentally got thrown out and staff went way beyond call of duty to locate it. Extremely great service and great food as well

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!

We had a lovely dinner. The ambiance was cozy. Unfortunately, just as we sat down, a wedding party sat down in the private room so our dinner took awhile to come out, but on a whole it was a wonderful evening.

A marvelous atmosphere upstairs in the dining room, not too noisy, wonderful waiter, very good food. The downstairs bar is pleasant too. A new favorite place!

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
