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

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...

I'm giving BoBo's an average rating because my steak, which was supposed to be medium was over cooked. My husband and son also had steak an theirs was fine.

All around, this was one of the nicest dining experiences we've had in a really long time. We started next door in their bar where it was $1 oyster night-Yummy.

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

We ate at this restaurant because it was close to the area we're we're staying and didn't want to drive anywhere. The restaurant was small but had parking free. I tried the Dungeness crab and it came cooked perfectly. They had options of ordering a half crab, whole crab and larger sizes for sharing. My husband ate a steak and... More

My wife and I were at the restaurant for a late supper, we were shown to a nice table and the waitress was polite and helpful with the menu. We both enjoyed our food of Crab and Steak and the bill was reasonable, not cheap but the quality of the food was good.

The first thing you notice about this restaurant is the black & red stripes outside. It is a fun place with expensive food. The service was great and the food was what you would expect from a steakhouse. Everything is a la carte so the sides can really add up. I personally think it`s hard to mess up a good... More

Excellent service, knowledgable waiters (on wine, in particular) and a great decor. Feels like the top tier of TGIF-style restaurants. The only thing I did not like, although it was very well prepared, was the lobster soup. Curry is a much too strong spice to allow for the otherwise readily available umami to present itself in a fine lobster dish.

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.
