Bobo is the elder sibling of Carlos Suarez's Casa Nela group, which includes Village hits, Rosemary's , Rosemary's Pizza 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.

Loved this little french spot. Worst part of the evening was the angry loud woman next to our table. Other than the fact that the tables are close together and I found myself eavesdropping on her entire conversation I loved the ambiance, the food and the service level of the staff. Very friendly and the food was delicious. Both I and my dinner partner cleaned our entire plates!

We had a lovely evening, a special occasion, great appetizers house made mushroom gnocchi and also octopus, as well as entrees trout... Also terrific mixed drink cocktail as well as Bordeaux with dinner. Staff all very attentive and helpful. Plus love the atmosphere: elegant, friendly, cozy. From San Francisco and a connoisseur of great food and wine, have been here before when visiting ny and will again! Also love the bar downstairs. We were here just before a great concert at Small's Jazz Club next door...

Went here for NYE. Paid for a fixed menu, 5-course meal. Service was spotty and they forgot to serve an entire course of the meal! Service was iffy so we never had the opportunity to bring it to anyone’s attention. Wine was expensive but not great. We’ve enjoyed Bobo before so are hoping this was just an off night. Our bill was over $500 for two people and we both felt we could have ate better at home.

Bobo is one of my favorite restaurants for 10 years and counting! The ambiance feels special, the food delicious, the service hospitable. It's a must for anyone heading to the west village for a classy night out on the town.

A limited menu, but all executed well. Great grilled octupus appetizer, lamb roast and hanger steak. Staff is friendly and pacing slow, so can have a conversation and eat but noise level high. A great value.

We had our Christmas Eve dinner at Bobo, and I have to say that it was a happy choice.
The staff is extremely friendly and Maggie, our waitress was fantastic. Also the food was delicious, carefully prepared and very well presented.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Absolutely a dinner experience for the books. Food was outstanding and the service was better than we've had at restaurants where we've paid double. We will definitely be back as they made us feel like local, regular diners.

Bobo hits on every mark - drinks, food and service. The only drawback as is with so many charming village restaurants is the extreme close proximity of the guests to one another. Having the wrong person next to you will make wish you knew sign language. You do however walk away with intimate knowledge of the people seated 10 inches next to you and fun facts like “every successful businessman eats brie.” Now I know.

That said, we will be back without pause and with a prayer for people who have inside voices to be seated next to us.

Super cute ambiance and the food lived up to the description. Gnocchi is soft like pillows and the octopus is perfectly grilled. Sit anywhere but I highly suggest the back in the “garden” area.

Bobo had an amazing ambiance as it used to be a house - very comfortable but still chic vibe. We were in the back where there was a covered patio and we could listen to the rain drops on the ceiling. Food was delicious!

First time here. Overall was very nice dinner with friends (4 of us) but the music on the sound system was so loud we had trouble hearing each other. So if you're looking for quiet, romantic, etc. this is not the place. Food was quite good but if we would have ordered anything beyond entrees it would have been very expensive. So "value" was only 2 stars. There are many other restaurants in the neighborhood that would have been better choices.

Such a wonderful experience from our first steps in, to our last steps out! We arrived a few minutes before our guests, so sat at the bar and had a cocktail. The bartender was warm and friendly. Once our guests arrived, we spent a few more minutes chatting downstairs before heading up to the beautiful candle lit dining area. The food was absolutely amazing. My wife and I split the lamb for two, ate beyond fullness, and still left with a bag to go. Thank you, Bobo! Can't wait to visit again!

Bobo has consistently good food and excellent service. They have catered to everything from a high chair for our 7-month-old to checking baggage for a friend out of town. Never pretentious and always accommodating. It's also been a wonderful restaurant for date nights.
