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.

Must do while in SF. Charming little steakhouse. Warm staff. Delicious dirty martini and then Cakebread Chardonnay with roasted mussels ( new for us!). Filet mignon with dingeses crabs and twice baked potato. Thank you Bobo's for a delicious and fun evening.

Silvia and I chose to eat at Bobo's earlier in the day and made a reservation online. We turned up on time and the table was not quite ready.
