We went here on TA recommendations and it was simply fantastic; The cooking was the best we have enjoyed in a three-week stay in the US - a flatbread sharer and moules frites, pistachio crusted salmon and steak frites to follow - all as good as you'll get in France. The frites and rosemary were out of this world. The... More

Loved everything about this place! Great atmosphere - we felt like we were in a little French countryside bistro. The only problem we had was deciding what to order because everything sounded so amazing. Loved everything we did choose.

If you have a big group avoid this restaurant at all cost. It might be ok for a normal 2 or 4 party group but if you need larger space don't come here. We called ahead for a party of 6 and were told you may have to wait a few minutes to assemble a suitable for the group. when... More

The restaurant is located in a San Diego beach town and was easy to get to even at 5:30pm. We started with the appetizer of brussel sprouts, then moved on to the salmon with pistachio crust; portions for 2 were plentiful and the mix of flavors superb. I rank it with a '4' only because, while dining outdoors, the noise... More

We took a group of ten adults to celebrate our son's 31st birthday. From the appetizers to desserts Bo beau did not disappoint. Started off with tantalizing cocktails, delicious appetizers, amazing entrées and then dessert....DELISH The menu is interesting and had something for everyone. The atmosphere, staff, service and presentation were all top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and... More

Unassuming entrance leads into a beautiful room that transports you to another land. Impressive bar with sharp bartenders. The food is delicious and unique, leaning towards French non-traditional. Servers are friendly and professional. The appetizers are very good with a varied selection and the entrees are well thought out. Plus, you are at the beach!

The royale with cheese and a fried egg on top had to have been the best burger of my life. Reasonably priced for such a tasty meal. Came with roasted garlic and delicious seasoned fries to dip in a garlic aioli sauce. I will be going back. Also, not only was the food to die for, the service was impeccable... More

After the disaster that was Gingham, we are so hopeful that the Cohn endeavor in La Mesa will work out for the long run. Last night I took a small group of five to test it out one more time. With mixed reviews, I had reason to worry. I'm not fond of being greeted by a cheerleading squad, but I... More

Usually French food is smothered in sauces, some good, some bad. BUT Bo Beau is spectacular ! Their menu is on a chalk board, the restaurant is cozy, medium casual, and now has a great outside patio dining (which is usually full). Get there early as no reservations accepted, NO ITEMS OVER $20 !!!! Don't miss the Crispy Brussels Sprouts... More
