Made reservations for our 34th anniversary and asked for a special booth upstairs my wife always loves to sit at and they said they would try to accommodate my request. We arrived about 45 minutes early but the hostess said they would try to get our table ready as soon as they could and asked if we wanted to get... More

We can't believe that we have walked by this place many times, and never really noticed it. We entered down the steps into the charming cozy bar, but then went upstairs to the dining room. It was not busy at 7PM when we went there, and did fill up a bit as we sat in the pretty dining room. It... More

This place was recommended by another spot whose kitchen had just closed. The food was great, drinks were awesome, and the waitstaff was super. The only drawback was the music was simply too loud. I would still go back.

Walking down the steps from atop the sidewalk tells you this location has been there awhile. The ambiance both downstairs in the bar area as well as upstairs is like to trip to great find in Burgundy or Provence! Stunningly quaint while elegant and soothing. We were hoping the experience itself was as dramatic. It was far more! One of... More

I went with a friend for Friday night drinks. Good selection of wine and a buzzy but civilised atmosphere. Great place to start the evening. We actually got through rather more wine than anticipated and ended up staying for dinner as we had missed our dinner reservation elsewhere. We had delicious burgers and the chips were good too.

Mt up with a friend for brunch and made the mistake of getting the brunch menu. Unfortunately this comes with more liquid then food - a cocktail, a juice, a tea/coffee and then a plate of eggs or a sandwich. All the drinks arived together, so the tea gets cold, whilst drinking the rest. Don't get the Bobo Mary -... More

I spend a lot of time on business in New York, and frequent restaurants in the West Village, but had never heard of Bobo. I was looking for a new place to eat on a recent weekday evening and just sort of stumbled into Bobo. Bobo's entrance is down a flight of stairs from thE street and easy to miss.... More

This was my first time in NYC and this place captures the essence of what New York and the Village is all about. Beautiful decor, beautiful people, beautiful food. You access this place by walking down a set of stairs, greeted by a bustling bar scene and walk up a narrow flight of stairs to the restaurant. Very quaint, great... More

Reviews of Bobo aren't exactly positive - but I really can't see what the negative reviews would be based on. Met friends for brunch on a Saturday morning, great ambiance, friendly service, excellent coffee and food (which comes with tiny pieces of cake and grapes as a nice surprise amuse bouche). OK, it's not exactly cheap, but definitely worth it... More
