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 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.

The first plus about Bobo's is the valet parking! This makes it quite convenient, especially on a busy weekend. The atmosphere is quirky and fun. The food...We had the lobster soup which was delicious and the baby bleu salad - definitely can't go wrong with either. In our party, 2 of us had the bone in filet and 2 had... More

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

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.
