“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

Had dinner in early April. Excellent choices and service. I had brussel sprouts, escargots, flat bread with toppings, and leek cheese macaroni. And a glass of white wine. Reasonable price. Only negative is parking. Get in early for dinner.

“One of the best spots in San Diego; excellent French influenced cuisine.”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

House made noodles with duck confit, and steak frite that met the muster of our picky French companion. Holds up to the food we marveled at in Paris.
Sat outside the second time and enjoyed the moon peeking at our table near the wood fired oven. Romantic to say the least, and the wine selection by our waiter was spot on. Highly recommended.

“BO beau restaurant, unique and inviting”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

Cozy and intimate without being the least bit stuffy. Attentive staff and delicious food. Can't wait to go back. Such a terrific addition to the OB restaurant lineup. Wouldn't go with little kids.

“Fun, Friendly & Very Good”
Reviewed May 6, 2012 via mobile

Enjoyed our first experience at Bo Beau last night. It is housed in a fun funky building keeping with it's Ocean Beach locale. Our group had four different entrees - boeuf bourguignon, mussels, steak frites, and the all in Mac and cheese - and everyone was very pleased. The salad with mixed greens, capers, and mozzarella was perfect for two to split. All of the staff people we encountered were fun friendly and professional. Wish they would take reservations but the initial estimate of a 1.5 hour wait when we called ahead to get on the list was more like 30-45 minutes after we arrived. Don't give many 5s -- Bo Beau is a strong 4.5!
