This restaurant was recommended by our concierge. Very friendly service and great steak. We shared double mussels between four and they were great served on a hot skillet, then came the steak which was cooked to perfection. Not cheap but great food.

The atmosphere is disjointed and very dark (hard to read the menus). The tables are extremely small. Our party of 4 was cramped into a corner. We brought our own wine; I think the corkage fee was $25. The steak was ok, not the best. I think the valet is complimentary as well. I wouldn't recommend.

We were excited to eat here. The service was slow up to and delivery of the meal. The seafood was terrible. The mussels were overlooked. They tasted as they had not been washed. The shrimp was not deshelled , burnt to the tray, and over cooked. The service was terrible and the waiter never came back. Our glasses were dry.... More

We went with a group of business partners to Bobo's. Fortunately it was their recommendation, because if we would have promoted we would be ashamed. It started well with seafood, especially the seasoning of the moussels was excellent. Was should have been the highlight, the bone in filet turned out into a very poor performance. The steaks where in most... More

Made a reservation as we heard that it can get crowded. However as we showed up, we have to wait another 20 minutes for our table and were told that it is still not ready after we finished our drinks. We ended up sitting on the high tables by the window which isn't bad but there isn't a point making... More

We loved eating here. Had the shrimp, oysters and crab. All were some of the best we have ever had. A couple of us had the the bone in fillet steak which was great. One of our favorite places and would go back again. Too full from dinner so did not try the dessert.

Best steak ever! Bone-in-filet was incredible! Tender, moist, marbled and finished perfectly! I would recommend to anyone into the best steaks ever.

We ordered the soft shell crab and found the sauce over powering that was poured all over the crab. When we asked for drawn butter, they brought it out but without a flame warmer. The bread that they normally serve before dinner was so hard that you could not bite it. The last time we visited I would have given... More

Description
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.
