From the moment we walked in we were made to feel welcome by the most delightful server (who could give lessons to other servers), we were simply made to feel special. And then the food!! It was spectacular I had the tenderloin which had a sauce almost requiring that the plate be licked Desert was good but I would try... More

We go to Boo's often and always have the best dinners.. I have never had a dinner that I didn't like. They make the best creme brulee..The menu is varied, interesting with choices not on other menus...

We were looking for a wine bar online and chose this restaurant because it had wine bar in the name. It's not really a wine bar. Very limited wine list with half being unreadable due to highlights text over photocopied. Please spend a few bucks and reprint the list. They had some consignment wines which sounded like they might be... More

We make our way to Boo's about 3 times a year and every time is brilliant. We love the service. Tonight we started with the scallops (my husband always get them) and I had the crab cakes. I had the mango salad with shrimp and he had the duck as mains. Both plates were fantastic. We usually finish off with... More

So let's start by saying the head waitress here is great. Super friendly and seems to know all he regulars very well. She has a great attitude and personality. She made our experience that much better. During this visit we were using a wagjag on Wednesday and they never gave any issues with it. I also don't know if I... More

A friend and I had heard many good things about Boos and decided to have lunch here one day. The ambience is nice and the service is good. Coming from Australia, we were both craving lamb and decided to try the rack of lamb. My goodness, it was one of the best racks I had ever had. Even my friend... More

The food here is so delicious I couldn't stop licking the plates. We had Wagjag coupons but couldn't use them as they are not redeemable on the weekend, so by the time we found out, we were seated anyway so we had to stay. We had the Cuban chicken skewers, the curry chicken and the breast of duck with a... More

I came to this restaurant because a friend of mine is friends with one of the chefs. All she could do is rave about the food, So I took a chance. I was not disappointed! I had the mussels in an apple and bacon sauce, so good I could have licked the plate clean! (I tried as good as I... More

My husband and I dined at Boo's tonight. Being a Wednesday night it wasn't as crowded as usual which I guess was good for us. Service was excellent but we never felt rushed. My husband fancied the mussels from the listing of house specials, so he also ordered the Mango and Stilton Salad (Bibb lettuce, sliced mango, White Stilton, crystallized... More
