Three diners all had filets, one with bone-in - a gimmick? Menu reads "all steaks cooked medium rare for best flavor" - paraphrasing a bit. Bone-in filet was not rare, but raw throughout the center. Guest across from me hoped, at least, HERS would be...More

We had a great meal starting with The Iron-Skillet Roasted Mussels and house bread to soak up the delicious sauce. We enjoyed the bone-in Filet Mignon - moist and perfectly cooked medium rare.

Nearby
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.

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.
