Description: 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.

The filet mignon was outstanding - probably the best steak I have eaten! The crab was also good but the steak is really the winner here. The atmosphere is fun and fairly casual, not stuffy or formal. The quality of food and service are top notch and the atmosphere by the bar is great, especially good for people watching. The... More

we dined at Bobo's Valentine's Weekend 2014. We had reservations, and it was well worth planning ahead. We arrived early and sat at the bar. Enjoyed a cocktail, the bartender and other staff were very friendly. Exceptional steak and crab. Excellent service. The atmosphere was fun, but not so that it overwhelmed your enjoyment of the food. The food is... More

This lounge is retro style with red chandeliers and soft rat pack style music playing through the sound system. They have a drink called the Fire Squad that's awesome and the sweet and crispy fries are a must. On Lombard St. in San Francisco.

Bobo's was recommended by friends who live in San Francisco as the best steak house in San Fran. The décor is crazy fun- described as "if New Orleans vomited". It is over the top New Orleans- more like a brothel. That said it is really fun with awesome ambiance. The appetizer of a mixture of seafood was served hot and... More

Bobo`s is an amazing place to eat with steaks that melt in your mouth. Every dish we had was excellent even the freshly squeezed lemonade. My #1 place for a special occasion in the city. The staff was wonderful too. Not cheap but great for a special occasion.

It was a Monday night after a painful work day - I was visiting San Fran on business along with 1000's (literally thousands) of healthcare executives and I wanted to find something off the grid.

No doubt this place has phenomenal steak but you can also get phenomenal steak with bigger portions for less money at Mortons. Even the appetizers were delicious but way too expensive for the portion size. As it's required, they also have their food score posted and it's a 79. That's REALLY low for any restaurant, let alone a fancier, expensive... More

I like this place and every time I visit SFO, I ate here. very good tenderloin and good sides. the only down side of the place is sometimes it can be very noisy, other than this it is the place for the steak in SFO.

This restaurant has good reviews on Trip Adviser which is one of the reasons we chose it. It may be me being British but I don't like the slightly pushy service and huffing and puffing about tips at the end of the meal. I thought this restaurant was expensive, even by SF standards, and I still cant understand why locally... More
