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.

We were referred to this restaurant by the concierge at the Argonaut. What a find! Jennifer our waitress was faultless with her manner being attentive but not intrusive and her recommendations were spot. We had the mignon with a Napa Cab Sav and were completely blown away. Very reasonable prices considering the quality of the food and service. I will... More

I had never been in SF before and the wife and I were in town for only a few nights and we were staying just one block down from Bobo's at the Francisco Bay Inn (decent place!) This restaurant basically caught our attention because of the name alone; our dog's name is Bo but we call him Bobo most of... More

I have been to Bobo's on about 5 occasions, and every time the meal is excellent. We were a party of 6, we had the double mussels-double crab to start, then each had his/her own cut of meat. I have always had the bone-in ribeye, and have never been disappointed. It has always been seasoned well, cooked medium-rare as I... More

Three diners all had filets, one with bone-in - a gimmick? Menu reads "all steaks cooked medium rare for best flavor" - paraphrasing a bit. Bone-in filet was not rare, but raw throughout the center. Guest across from me hoped, at least, HERS would be medium as ordered and NOT rare or even medium rare. Mine? I wanted medium-rare. Guest... More

Dear WT48: Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you were not thrilled with the steak and that our shrimp and onion rings did not meet your expectations. We work hard to prepare an exceptional meal for every guest and from your review it appears we did not deliver. I hope you brought this matter to my staff’s attention... More

My new favorite place for a good steak; the bone in fillet mignon is to die for. This is a very popular place, lots of tables, it can be a little noisy, but we had no problem carrying a normal conversation during dinner. There are few romantic, tucked away tables, if you are on a date, or special occasion. Just... More

We had the mussels and shrimp appetizer which was OK...Then came the steaks (bone-in filet and petite filets)...they were tender and cooked as ordered, but not highly seasoned; what was disappointing were the sides...thought the portion size was only enough for 2...and that's barely...we tried the brussel sprouts, mac & cheese and onion rings; onion rings were the best of...

We had a great meal starting with The Iron-Skillet Roasted Mussels and house bread to soak up the delicious sauce. We enjoyed the bone-in Filet Mignon - moist and perfectly cooked medium rare.

We tried the Petit Filet Mignon ($31.95 without any sides) done medium, onion rings($8.95), portobello mushrooms ($8.95), mussels double ($31.95). These were paired with a local Merlot (Peju Napa 2007, $49). It was a lovely meal, particularly for the steak & wine. Overall, it may appear a little pricey, but for the quality of steak & culinary skill that went... More
