Went there about a year ago and loved it. Went back recently and were disappointed. The menu totally changed - it is now a basic French Bistro - Food was good but not memorable. The main issue was that the menu was very limited and there was only 1 special. No veggie options and when we were there, the only... More

It was good services and tentatively attended by our server. We started with the Foie Gras and Escargo but had to send back the Escargo because it didn't taste good at all. We changed it to the Grilled Octopus and amazed how tasty it was. We had grilled salmon and duck breast for entrees, then had the fried beignet as... More

We were invited there for a birthday party with about 14 other persons. We were in a private room. Our host had organized a pre-fixed menu for $75 but few some people had to order outside because of some food constraints. To our dismay, the bill came up $170 per person !!! They basically double dipped by charging full price... More

We really enjoyed having diner at Bobo. The lower level had a nice bar with a vibrant atmosphere. The upper floor is more of a seated diner. The place is Nicely decorated, it has this cozy french feel to it. And the staff were friendly and helpful. What to order: we ordered the tuna tartar as an appetizer. It was... More

We ate here on our final night in New York after having spotted the place earlier in our stay. The restaurant is very classily decorated, giving a great ambience, which is added to by the helpful and friendly front-of-house staff. We ordered between us two meals and two sides. One of the main courses and one of the sides however... More

Two women and a child for Sunday morning Brunch. Sat at a Banquet which allowed the child to squirm as much as she wanted without bothering anyone else. Nice menu but not extraordinary except for the ambience.

Small house right off the corner of 10, this is a great spot for gathering, great bar selections and a fantastic menu! The bar is downstairs where you are greeted to check reservations for dinner. For this type of building in NYC the bar is rather large with low ceiling a decorated nicely. THe restaurant upstairs is "Paris like with... More

Two middle aged couples had dinner at Bobo. The food was fabulous and they paid attention to special requests as one of our party is Vegetarian. There are lots of steps which we didn't mind. There is a table in the back which is near the windows which we moved from as there was some sort of weird vibration. The... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
