Bobo's is a stylish destination for the most exquisite steak and crab in the City. With antiqued red walls, colored glass light fixtures and striped tablecloths, the restaurant is like a plush Venetian jewel box. Executive Chef Andrea Froncillo has created a delectable menu that showcases his signature Italian-Asian fusion. The steak is USDA certified prime beef, dry-aged four to six weeks - longer than anywhere else on the West Coast! The crab is Dungeness, harvested from the Pacific Ocean and roasted in a savory garlic-butter sauce that is positively addicting.

For a day of drinking with friends and family, it was good, not too many beer options in the menu, but the cocktails were served incredibly... Also got to say by far the most beautiful bathroom in the trip

The is a great little place. The steak is wonderful. Nice wine list and the prices are afordable. Deserts are great, be warned they are rich. If you are in the city for dinner it is will worth stopping in.

Most reviewers agree, the bone-in filet is the dish to order here if you like steak. It is a really delicious piece of meat and perfectly prepared. The crab always looks good too, though I haven't tried it. Personally I always dine alone at the bar, and enjoy the steak along with the sautéed chard and the sourdough bread. The... More

Dress nice and expect high prices. The food was pretty good and it is a local favorite. It had a fun theme to the place and the service staff was great.

We went to Bobo's on our last night, and had the Filet Mignon, that is all that's on your plate if you want sides they are extra, like $9 for a baked potato, the steak was really nice though but the area we were sat in was next to the bar and very noisey, the staff were friendly enough, but...

First, let me say the food was great. Everyone says to order the bone-in filet mignon. However we went with the rib eye cause that's the cut I like best at home. It was tasty and cooked perfectly but next time, I'd go with the filet. The restaurant is pricey so be warned. The atmosphere is interesting. Red is the... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
