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.

Perfect little table's for two, huge perfectly cooked steaks in pretty much any cut you can think of. Hugely recommend the spinach side but not for those who aren't garlic friendly. Great sized portions - I can eat, but still ended up taking away a healthy sized leftovers box which made for a lovely midnight feast when we were back... More

As so many other reviewers have said, the bone-in Ribeye steak is excellent. I also enjoyed the twice baked potatoes. The lobster soup does have a strong curry flavor,which i didn't care for but my wife loved it. If you enjoy sweet wine their dessert wine late harvest reisling is excellent, too.

The concierge at our hotel at Fisherman's Wharf rated it as quite small, family run, "funky" with a great atmosphere. Sure we could walk there! However, although it looked close enough, it was not a contour map. Thank goodness my wife was there to give me a push or pull when needed! On arrival we were warmly greeted, and seated... More

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.

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.
