I was taken here for a business dinner and had a lovely evening. Arriving first, I accidentally walked into their burger restaurant which had me in stitches thinking this is where I was going to receive a business pitch, but soon saw the proper restaurant just further along :) The bar service and unusual takes on classic cocktails were wonderful...

Party of five first week in October. All but one ordered steak, the other ordered the white fish. All 4 guys said steak was terrible. Two bone in ribeyes, one bone in NY Strip, and one filet. One of the guys ordered medium and it came out well done. Instead of taking it back for another steak, he asked for... More

Dinner was a feast. The steaks were tasty and the side dishes presented with a flourish and was so very good. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the friendliness and attentive service made dinner into a treat.

Been to many steakhouses, some of the best in the country, and after reading all the good reviews on Bobo's, we decided to give it a shot. I guess there is always that occasion where you just don't get a good steak, but that rarely happens at a good steakhouse. My wife and I split the medium size bone-in filet... More

Nice environment, hassle free for car park due to valet services, portion of food is good 👍, friendly service, but a bit pricey.

We were invited to a birthday dinner at Bobo's and it was our first time there. We were seated on the top floor. Lots of stairs so if you're planning to bring some family who have mobility issues, you might want to reconsider. Regarding their food, they do know how to cook steaks . I loved the bone in filet...

This was my third visit to Bobo's after a 6 year gap and I was overall pleased with the experience. The bone-in filet was amazing as well as the appetizers and accompaniments. Finishing off with the "cones" for desert are a must, and you can choose the quality (very reasonably priced). The service did not match the price point and... More

One of their house specials, the bone-in filet was delicious. Proper temperature, great sear. The interior is definitely old-school, so it can get a little stuffy with bigger groups, but the staff is very accommodating to your needs. The seafood sampler with mussels, crab legs and shrimp is a great dish to share.

Enjoyed the steak and crab, service was good but our table for two was so close to the table next to ours it felt awkward. Wine list was good, service was good. The clown theme surprised me, I guess I didn't think about the name!

On Lombard just 4 blocks west of the crookest street sits Bobo's, a quirky place with the BEST steak ever. After a day of travel it was close to our hotel. We shared a blue cheese salad, lobster crostini and a bone in filet. Everything was wonderful and delicious! We showed up with no reservations and they found a table... More

Bobo's is a stylish destination for the most exquisite steak and crab in the City. With antiqued red walls, colored glass light fixtures and striped tablecloths, the restaurant is like a plush Venetian jewel box. Executive Chef Andrea Froncillo has created a delectable menu that showcases his signature Italian-Asian fusion. The steak is USDA certified prime beef, dry-aged four to six weeks - longer than anywhere else on the West Coast! The crab is Dungeness, harvested from the Pacific Ocean and roasted in a savory garlic-butter sauce that is positively addicting.

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
