    Cocktails and dinner was great. The service from David was top notch. Bacon wrapped filet was the best. Halibut was good but needed more sauce and less rice. Save room for dessert, the Twisted Elvis is the bomb.

    Thanksgiving dinner - on this occasion where the meal is themed around turkey - the turkey was dry, very little gravy, very little cranberry, the mashed potatoes were dry and the broccoli was undercooked so that I couldn’t cut through the stem with my knife. I wasn’t honest with the waiter, didn’t feel like complaining - all the other entrees were delicious, the steak, seafood were very good! We ordered additional herbal stuffing, they brought out potatoes instead and when we reminded that we ordered stuffing they said they were out. They said the potatoes wouldn’t be charged for. The squash soup was described as made with spicy pumpkin seeds - no hint of that, the flavor was rather bland and uninteresting. The salad was great. The service was exceptional, our waiter was 100% attentive and fresh water regularly. The outdoor ambiance was very good: attractive and quiet. >> The washrooms were all full, staff showed us a second set and they were just as bad - the 12-15minute wait was very disappointing especially because the fellow who came out of the one I used was staff. << Overall I’d recommend to others, the high quality of the majority of the entrees is the main reason I’d return. Thank you for an enjoyable evening

    Based on the reviews, we went to this restaurant with high hopes. I also like to support small and local restaurants; so we were excited about this too. Unfortunately, we had extremely poor service and our meal was below average. Our soup came over 30 minutes after we ordered it and was served cool - not warm or hot. We also had to request spoons for our soup as the staff wasn't able to figure out this need on their own. Our main courses came at 65 minutes after we ordered them and were warm, not hot, and dry. My wine glass sat on the table EMPTY for 48 minutes before one of the managers finally noticed and asked if I'd like a refill. When the desserts finally came, we were looking forward to their "special" apple pie, but it was served dry and cold with ice cream on the side; the least they could have done was put it in a microwave first. As we waited and grumbled, we also noticed that other tables were equally as frustrated. The only shining spot in our experience is that one of the managers showed great concern for our issues and did her best to try and improve our experience, at the end; but unfortunately it was too late. I'm not sure if this restaurant was simply having a bad night or needs to retrain (or dismiss) it's staff. But we won't be returning and we'll be telling our friends about this experience.

    They were slammed on Thanksgiving evening but the service was still good and the food so worth the wait. Room a little noisy but love that it's in the old Ford dealership, the big windows are cool. Can't wait to go back and try the garden for lunch

    Service was great. Hostess seamed a bit overwhelmed but they were pretty busy. Management was great constantly walking around to make sure everyone was happy and business was running smoothly. The food was amazing, a little pricey but worth every penny. We will definitely be back had a great time.

    We LOVE Beau Bo's Happy Hour! It makes us very happy!!! Our waitress was great and went over and above with her service! My husband saw one of the hamburgers go by and I missed it. I was trying to see it and she thought I needed her. I laughed and said I just trying to check out the hamburger...and within two minutes she was back to our table with a picture of it on her phone to show me!!!! Food was excellent as it always it! My husband had the drink of the day, the gold rush which he thought was really good and he enjoyed it! The brussel sprouts are the best we have ever had anywhere! And a large portion!!

    The food was really good. It was not particularly creative or special but very good. However, this was still one of my best dining experiences ever because of the service. I have never been treated so special and with such sincerity before. The hostess was very intentional in celebrating our anniversary and our waiter was incredibly charismatic and kind. I felt like a special invited guest during our whole experience and we shared an appetizer and mean and didn't get any drinks and yet they still acted like we were top class. The ambiance was also wonderful outside under the lights.

    This was our second visit. It was every bit as good as the first. Our server, Savannah, we remembered from our first visit. She remembered us and exactly where we sat. Very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wines offered on the menu. We had the steak and fries and boeuf bourguinon. Both delicious and the wines we selected were new to us and matched well with our food. Another great visit to a well run restaurant. Recommend highly.

    BO-beau is a really nice place. Beautiful ambience. Service, and food and wine selection was amazing. I did get the panko crusted halibut and it was pretty bland and left a little to be desired. Everything else we got was really good though. Brie was delicious, french onion soup was super good, and my husband had the steak frites and the steak was a little rare but good overall.

    Enjoyed mine and my daughter’s birthday dinner very much! The ambiance lighting and decor was so stylish, classy yet comfortable. The Brussels Sprouts appetizer was very tasty and flavorful; the Ribeye with Chimichurri and mashed potatoes was absolutely delicious. We order my daughters the Kid’s Steaks well done. Unfortunately it was a bit too charred and dry, I ended up sharing my ribeye with them. The French Onion was pretty good… The Mud Pie was amazing beyond words, I would definitely recommend! I guess there was a lack of communication between the hostess ladies and our server, because she didn’t know we were celebrating our birthdays that evening, but we let her know and she brought out the complimentary dessert with a birthday candle so that was fine. Simple chocolate cake with ice cream was okay, compared to the crazy fabulous mud pie! All in all it was a good experience and I would return and recommend 👍🏼

    It was great. We mainly ordered off of the Happy Hour menu. Everything was tasty and value priced - including the slider, skewers and brussel sprouts. The mojito was yummy and so was the hibiscus margarita with black sea salt. The complimentary birthday treats were delicious and the perfect size. Just a great time all around!

    Went 10/7/2022 at 8. Our party ordered 2 burgers medium, came super well done. Missing a few of their normal ingredients (burgers there are usually awesome). Cesar salad, again, normally great, was sub par. Halibut was overcooked. Service was really slow, but that’s ok with todays labor shortage. Server was very good.
