First off, make sure to call ahead and put your name on their reservation list on the weekends. Second, this is definitely not for the faint of heart/starving. We called ahead, waited 45 minutes, got to the restaurant and still waited for an additional hour before we were seated. At that point we were starving and a little annoyed but... More

Quaint and cozy is how you feel the moment you walk in. Fortunately, the food and service continue the vibe you get when you enter. Yes, what everyone says about the Brussels sprouts is true. And it's a heaping portion! Some decent wines by the glass, including Italian white that wasn't pino Grigio. I had the scallops which were perfectly... More

Had dinner at Bo Beau's twice during a recent trip to San Diego. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very inviting. The brussel sprouts were amazing. First time we ate outside by the flatbread oven and the second time inside. Will definitely return to Bo Beau's if I am back in San Diego.

Very intimate french restaurant. Small menu that focuses on several mussel dishes - all very creative and tasty. The other main stay is multiple flatbread creations. The squash flatbread is excellent. Small selection of beers, but all are big sellers like Racer 5 and Karl Straus. Large selection of wines with a decent offering of flight tastings. Within walking distance... More

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

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!
