Bobo is the elder sibling of Carlos Suarez's Casa Nela group, which includes 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 W 10th and 7th Ave, guests are transported to a chic French country home with sizable bar area, parlor level dining room, and gorgeous year-round garden.

The restaurant serves dinner and weekend brunch, offering classic French country cooking lightened for their West Village neighbors - confit lamb shoulder, chicken cocotte grand mere, chocolate mousse, and bistro stand-bys like oysters and panisse.

Great spot for a date and makes for a very charming dining experience. Upstairs decor is welcoming and quiet enough to carry on a conversation. Had the mushroom tart and the sasso chicken with the Bordeaux while my date had the fillet de boeuf both of which were super delicious. Portions are just right and the staff is friendly. Totally would come here again.

Only one part of our experience was unsatisfactory. My husband ordered the roast chicken, which came with bacon. Since he does not care for the taste of bacon, he requested the chicken with out. But the preparation clearly included bacon and he couldn't eat it. I shared my entrée with him because he didn't want to wait for a new one. The manager graciously removed the cost of the entrée from our check, and even offered us the dish to take home.

We would definitely return but would question the preparations more carefully next time

This is an outstanding French bistro in a charming old home. Food was excellent and ambience was delightful. We were seated upstairs and the noise level was very low and among the best in the City. We have now eaten there three times and loved each occasion.

so sorry to see the remodel upstairs. I felt like i was in the suburbs. it is a crime that you took the booths out of the front windows.
that said, I live in the neighborhood and will continue to support the restaurant.

All the food we had was excellent including the mushroom tart and chicken and the octopus and the duck special. Service was friendly and attentive except they did slightly mess up my dessert order. Opt for a seat in the back upstairs.

It’s a beautiful space, but so noisy that you can barely have conversation. The menu is interesting, but the execution of the food is relatively tasteless and mediocre. Most of our hot dishes arrived lukewarm. There are so many other places in the neighborhood that are just as charming looking and at the same price point that it’s not worth a visit.

Finally got to try Bobo for brunch. I pass by this restaurant all the time and see the big sign but never went until today. I'm so glad we finally tried it.

Breaking down the review as follows:

Reservations: They allow reservations through OpenTable and we got there super early so we waited at the bar. The manager was so nice and accommodating and offered to seat us at our table even though our party wasn't complete. This is a + since most NYC restaurants will not seat you unless your party is complete.

Ambiance: You can tell from all the pictures I posted on this review that I loved the decor and ambiance. It's so stinkin' cute!! So much French flair and country chic. Great lighting too on the patio!

Service: Our server was very good and attentive. He's on point from giving us good suggestions to refilling our water and drinks.

Food:
I had the lamb shoulder and polenta and it was so delicious!! I could eat that every day! Also tried my friend's Croque Madame and it was heavenly! From the presentation to the actual taste, the food was on point!

Bobo is a great place for brunch. I'll have to try it for dinner one of these days.

Very pretty space, especially if you’re having brunch in their back conservatory-like sunroom. The food was very good - I had the eggs with wild mushrooms. They were incredibly accommodating when my friend realized her eggs were made with butter which can make her quite ill. Without any fuss they quickly whipped up an order with olive oil in no time at all. (Just wish they would carry some sort of non-dairy milk for coffees. It’s a mainstream thing.)

The only negative was the total lack of any non glutton
Side dish.......ie: bread ( toast) which would have completed the omelette choice. It’s a major request these days and a loaf of glutton free bread in the kitchen would work wonders.......trust me.

We had brunch at Bobo recently. While the downstairs was quiet, it was bustling upstairs. The steak tartare was flavorful, and different than your typical steak tartare. I'm always weary of pancakes for brunch, even though it's a typical brunch menu item because they are often doughy or dry and cakey; however, these pancakes were delicious! All in all, a good vibe and good food.

Amazing overall experience. The food was to die for, the service was fantastic and the place is so charming! Upstairs dining room is more quiet and downstairs at the bar there’s music and a more vibrant scene and you can also eat, not just for drinks. Will definitely come back!

Was there on valentine's day, which had prix fixe menu. Considering that, maybe server was not super excited given that often prix-fixer diners don't tip well, but the service was definitely subpar. The food was fine, but certainly not remarkable. For the price, I wouldn't consider it a great deal. I'm very willing to spend $150 per person on a great meal with good wine, but this didn't meet my expectations.

It’s a lovely place to enjoy an intimate session with a loved one, and I’ve been here for brunch, many people enjoyed their food and service! Ordered chicory and kale salad, which was fantastic! Next was a French version of buttermilk pancakes (crêpes au babeurre), which were stunning, and sweet! Last was chocolate mousse in a glass. Thick, delicious, but maybe a bit cold for my tastes. My waitress was kind and receptive, and my bill was generous. I’ll gladly return again, maybe for dinner!

My wife and I went to Bobo's as part of a night out and really enjoyed it. Some Manhattan restaurants are too much of a scene - too noisy and crowded - but this place had a decent amount of space and was busy but not loud. The food was excellent, the service very attentive without being annoying. It was a little pricey but worth it for a special night.

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.

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!
