Very Happy Birthday Dinner

Bobo was a perfect choice for a birthday dinner for my BF. He requested French. This restaurant has a lovely vintage romantic vibe since it is housed in an Edwardian (I think) townhouse. You enter on the basement/bar level and we were greeted by two very friendly hosts. The bar looked cool, but we... read more

Our party had a beautiful, delicious, relaxed dinner. The signature dishes (hamburger, tongue, cheek, and bourbon flights; duck) were excellent, but so were the others (scallop risotto) we sampled. Waitstaff were enthusiastic but not pushy, and very accommodating (we were 8 adults and one young child).

Talented bar tenders with amazing cocktails! Not much to comment on food, since I just ordered Salad. It is definitely worth a try.

Reserved a table upstairs in the "restaurant" rather than the bar type area downstairs. Good ambiance and good service throughout the evening. The Boullabaise, Lamb and Steak that we ordered as main courses were excellent (as well as the spicy Margarita we had as an aperitif). Definitely at the pricey end, but certainly a restaurant we'll return to in future... More

We arrived when they opened at 11, so I don't know how crazy it is later in the day. The place is deceiving from the outside, but quite bright and cherry inside. Everything on the menu sounded delicious, I opted for the lobster omelette which was perfect. They have an interesting bar menu, but we didn't order cocktails. It's not... More

ask to be away from stairwell. good vibe. Attentive service. So so bread. Excellent octopus and beans. Too salty but tasty mushrooms and ravioli. Bobo salads heaping and fresh. Good clams and mussels. Go to hidden small bar upstairs for a martini and oysters.

I selected BoBo based on Yelp reviews, and once again, thank you. As you go down the stairs, it feels like you have stepped into a quaint place, outside the city limits. Our hostess sat us in the enclosed garden which I loved. Once seated, we had a funny and gracious waiter who served us well through out the evening.... More

The restaurant itself is lovely - in an old townhouse with real character. It had a warm, romantic feel. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was not exceptional but was pleasant.

We chanced upon this restaurant when on our short stay in New York, when eating out in SoHo was top of my priorities. They offered us a lovely cosy table in the downstairs bar area (I later learned they have an upstairs dining room, but since we had no reservation we were seating downstairs.) The atmosphere was buzzing and cosy,... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
