I love this place!! What a gem, almost hard to write another awesome review, but the secret is out! There's no keeping this place to myself! It's like you took a little bit of France and placed it in san diego. Complete with charming atmosphere, and amazing food! Love the quaintness, and the outdoor patio! Very romantic! They do not...

We went to BO Beau for restaurant week. We called ahead and they predicted a 1 1/2 to 2 hour wait. We showed up after 1 hr 45 min and we still had to wait 30-40 minutes. Try to go at not peak hours! Escargots and corn bisque were outstanding starters. All the entrees my group tried was great in... More

Another great little out of the way placed in Ocean Beach(OB) San Diego California. Great service, great atmosphere and of course tremendous food. The Brussel sprouts are over the top amazing and incredible...fight the urge to pass on them and just get them, even if you don't like brussel sprouts. These will change your mind. I had a brined pork... More

Over Christmas vacation in San Diego two of the best (amateur) food critics I know recommended Bo Beau to me. My wife and I had a wonderful dinner. We cannot wait to get back to San Diego for a return visit. We only had appetizers, all of which were fabulous. Our excellent server recommended that we share a one-half order... More

It took two tries to get a seat in this restaurant but it was worth the wait. We ate there a few weeks ago so i'm a little fuzzy on all we ate but I had a chicken dish that the server recommended and it was just awesome! My friend's dish was excellent as well but I can't remember what... More

No reservations, but call in ahead with your name and party size or just show up and get on the list. I think this is just great as we were seated pretty quick. Everything was delicious and we will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu! They even have a small scale 'Locks of Love' gate.

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
