5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Stumbled upon the town of Ocean Beach, and through the reviews on Trip Advisor we found Bo beau kitchen- One of the best meals we've had in a long time, and at a very reasonable price- Brussels Sprout ap is to die for, and the presentation is wonderful- you think, "we'll never eat all this", but you do- everything was fresh and delicious, and the atmosphere was hip and cozy at the same time-

“Fun Buzzing Vibe, very French bistro feeling!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Maybe it was just our Wedding Anniversary magic, but we had a fabulous night here! Very surprised that we had to wait about an hour for a table on a Monday night.
The crispy brussel sprouts fried with pancetta bacon in balsamic reduction were beyond great-I am embarressed to admit that we devoured the entire platter.
My hubby had the frites and moules moullier, and I had the salmon. Both were excellent and the portions were very generous.
Only Cons: Wine was cheap-we chose the $20 carafe, but that's on us for ordering it! Hard to resist paying only $8 more for a carafe than the price of two glasses. And perhaps the Cohn group should invest in a computer for making reservations! :)

“Charming, friendly bistro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Unique little find. Great energy and very friendly waitstaff,bartenders and manager. No reservations so go early or late if on a weekend. Our wait wasn't as long as expected. Love the menu and our dinners were great. Had the night's special which was a filet and scallops with lobster Mac and cheese. And because I didn't want the steak, the waiter suggested to do scallops only. Generous servings and bold flavors.

“Love the atmosphere and the food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

When I think of a neighborhood restaurant with a bit of class and big flavors I think of this place. After reading a review on trip advisor we went to this place. We had the Brussels sprouts, mussels, and a pizza. All amazing especially the Brussels sprouts. This place is why I love SD so much. Small neighborhoods with great restaurants. This place is rather unassuming from the outside but when you walk in there is so much charm and character. I ordered a beer at the bar as we waited for a table. They serve a selection of great local beers. SD has numerous breweries and I've noticed that the restaurants like to focus on serving the beers from the area. All around I would highly recommend this place
