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.

A bit pricey for the quality. Other diners seemed enthusiastic but not as good as they think, from my personal experience. Good but not excellent steaks.

We have dined her several times over the years and the food and service has always been great. The best crabs in town and all the sides are very good as well. We highly recommend.

Was visiting my daughter and wanted to end the trip on a special note. From the tuna carpaccio to the steak - everything was superb. Not rushed - but tended to. Our server was very good.. Just a great experience.

Had a wonderful dinner at Bobo's on Christmas Night (25th Dec). Amazing food, perfect ambience for a romantic dinner (too bad I was with a friend :D). Jokes apart, just try whatever they suggest you. It's totally worth it. They could have a larger selection of cocktails though :(

Great service, waiter definitely knew what he was talking about. Food was amazing. Everything we got was superb, steak and seafood included. Atmosphere was nice but could get a little loud in the room. Pretty expensive but it reflected the food, service, and atmosphere. Reservation highly suggested.

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
