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

It's an unexpected gem hidden on the corner of a suburban street next to a soccer field. From the outside it's an older looking building, but with character nonetheless. When you walk in you realize this is a current, fun, and inviting environment. The hostess seated us in the perfect spot. Right next to the brick oven we could smell... More

Wow, what a culinary experience! Ate here for the first time recently; won't be the last! The best way to experience as many items as possible is to share! The Crispy Brussels Sprouts with pancetta, parmesan and balsamic vinegar lived up to their fame. Their Woodstone Oven Flat Breads were very tasty - thin, crispy crusts, with a fresh and... More

Four of us ate here on a Monday night. We had not booked and were offered a table either inside the restaurant or on the patio. We decided on inside, as the patio looked as if it was not uniformly heated with some definite potentially uncomfortably hot areas. The interior is rustic in decor and low-lit, to the extent that...

Bo Beau - the Ocean Beach location - is our favorite San Diego restaurant by far. We always take out of town guests to dine with us and this past Saturday we had the best experience. We were a 6 top - and we know to arrive early on weekends - so we were seated by 5:15. The best thing... More

Wow, what a cute venue! So reminiscent of my time in Europe. Lovely atmosphere, very helpful bartender and waitress. There was a 45 minute wait but we could call in advance from the hotel and get on that list. By far, the best was the brussel sprouts: to a perfect crisp with pancetta, aged balsamic and shaved parmesan. I really... More

My husband and I came here for our New Years Eve dinner this year, and it was pretty bad. I am very sympathetic to the fact that holidays are busy, and I know you're trying to get as many people in and out of there as possible but the food and service were both completely "blah." We started with an... More

We enjoyed the flatbread, sampled all 6 wines available for the wine flights, then a pork entree and a sirloin entree, all while under the stars and sitting next to the fire outside. It was a lovely evening with great service. We arrived around 5:30 and didn't have a wait, but the place got crowded soon after! Take a big... More

There’s eating out (casual & fun), there’s fine dining (crystal & linen) and then there’s a truly unique dining experience…welcome to Bo-beau’s. The moment you enter it envelopes you…there’s a unique vibe to this place. It doesn’t have a typical restaurant feeling or look. It’s a stand alone sanctuary that is hard to describe in mere words, like trying to... More
