Plan on spending a small fortune, but it's worth it. A lot of locals frequent this restaurant, it's a very quaint and romantic setting.

Someone recommended this restaurant as having the 'best filet they'd ever had', so we decided to try it. I have to say, he may be right. I've never tasted a filet so delicious! This is the type of restaurant where you only get the entree, and all sides are ordered a-la-carte, so be aware of that. The mac n cheese... More

A lovely little bar but expensive. Two burgers (nice size), two ribs (small size), 5 beers and one small glass of wine $150 with tip.

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...

This is a spin off of the big "bobos the steak" restaurant. This is a quaint little place. Staff is very friendly. Menu selection isn't much but for light meals and drinks it is very good. Right next to Travelodge by the Bay

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.

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.
