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.

If you don't mind spend 60 dolars on a peace of meat without any side, the reviews are great. but unfortunately I could not afford the luxury. Any side is 9 dolars each. 9 dolars for a couliflower! Without taxes or tip.

My boyfriend and I had dinner here on a Saturday evening. Super convenient to be able to book online. Best service we had during our entire stay in San fran. Steak was cooked perfectly and very juicy, although a bit bland. Crab was good with an interesting flavor. Excellent wine selection and great environment. Would definitely go back again!

This restaurant was just up the block from out hotel. I read all of the great reviews and figured why not. I had the 8oz filet and my husband had the surf and turf. The surf and turf was the bone-in filet and Dungeness crab legs. We also ordered the twice baked potato. Everything was delicious! Just so you know... More

Being from Orlando, we were very lucky to have this place recommended to us from the bartender at Maggies in China Town. We made a reservation on line, got an Uber car, and proceeded to have the best steak i have ever eaten!! We shared an app, salad, and a giant baked potato. The server recommended the bone in filet,... More

Bobos was one of the few places we could find a table around 7 o'clock on Thanksgiving night, and we were grateful for that. I thought it was odd that they did not give their full menu prices on open table but we went anyway. Now I understand; apparently bobos is famous for their steaks, unfortunately the only thing I...

I enjoyed the food at Bobo's. Staff was friendly and had a great time chatting with the table next to ours. It shows the atmosphere is not one of the stuffy kinds of places (which I dont enjoy). Free valet is also very appreciated given its SF.

I have wanted to go to Bobo's for years and was looking forward to finally trying their highly regarded steak. I found that the filet mignon was indeed fabulous. I was surprised that the rest of the menu was limited in appetizers and side dishes. The caesar and house salads were very small and not impressive. The portabello mushroom side... More

I was very pleased. I'm picky about my steaks and really like the charred surface and juicy center. Valet parking is great and easy. I also had the mussels, crab and shrimp appetizer. Its on an iron skillet which keeps it warm and gives it almost a smoky taste--great. Brussels sprouts are cut in half and were devoured by the... More

Absolutely beautiful, tender steak! Unreal!! Outstanding service. Considering our start to san fran wasn't the best we stumbled across Bobos and it changed our attitude to san francisco. Different style restaurant, cool decor. Jester sort of theme. Ask for Ricky Wong if you have any questions. .great guy very knowledgeable about anything to do with bobos, san fran and port!!
