OK....believe it or not, the Brussels' Sprouts are a must at this quaint, Ocean Beach establishment. And that is just for starters. The food is overall quite good...pommes frites done just the way they should be, flatbread offerings that are very interesting and fabulous burgers.
The building is reminiscent of the French countryside so is very cool. The service has been top notch each time we have eaten there. Good beers on tap and a nice selection of wines in varying price range. When we can't decide where to go for dinner out, Bo Beau always comes to mind and thus far it has not disappointed.

Chef Kat continues to amaze me and I've been visiting since the begining. I've tried everything on the menu and never been disappointed. Even discovered a love of mussels thanks to her many ways of presenting them. It's always a joy to take someone new to this delightful spot in my neighborhood. I love the positive reaction to the 'sprouts by folks who claim they hate them. Hmm, I haven't had 'sprouts in over 3 weeks- time for a 'refill.'

We had super high expectations for Bo Beau's since we were so impressed with our 1st visit! They certainly didn't dissapoint. We had the same stellar service & incredible food! Unfortunately we didn't venture out & try anything new off the menu. We had to same items as last time since they were so good! Can't wait to go back to San Diego to pay Bo beau's another visit. It has become a mandatory stop on any visit! Mmmmmmm brussel sprouts!

Our group of 3 were greeted well at the door, then seated immediately. The menu is small plates with a few entree selections, and we decided to go the small plate way. We ordered $40+ bottle of wine, and it came with JELLY GLASSES---when I questioned the waiter, he said, "oh it's bistro style"---give me a break---wine in a jelly glass can't possible breathe and it makes it seem like they just don't care about the wines, even though they have a large selection by the glass.
We ordered the signature Brussels sprouts---they came charred beyond recognition---like the emperor's new clothes, the waiter said, that's the way people like them.....again, come on. From there we ordered a beet, curried onion confit flat bread with jalapenos---awful---no combination of flavors could be discerned since the jalapenos were raw and looked like an after though. The beet and arugula salad was the only saving grace---afraid to order anything else, we called it a night.
Every restaurant has a bad night, but this was consistently poor service---waiter disappearing for 30 minutes at a time---no refills on water, and those jelly glasses were really a turn off. The food was just universallly disappointing, and the $100+ bill was way over what this was worth.

Recent went to SD with 2 friends for a girls weekend and went here for dinner one night. What a gem! The brussel sprouts were amazing and plentiful (the 3 of us had to force ourselves to stop to save room for dinner. Dinner was good (I had the Mac and Cheese with Lobster) - pretty heavy - but good, didn't finish it so we could save room for their "cake in a jar". A sweet ending to split to a great evening.
