Good food but terrible service! The waiter wrote the total amount including the tip on the bill and when I was leaving he Told me that I had to pay more. It was very shameful!

Excited by our first visit to San Francisco, we were even more delighted to receive two recommendations for Bobo’s. Admittedly, those that made the recommendations had dined there a few years ago, so they cannot be held to account for the meal we had. Expecting...More

Pros: Bone-In Fillet is Excellent, Intimate atmosphere Cons: Non steak options are only OK Bobo's had a very good reputation in San Francisco; and it deserves it as it has excellent food, and a very unique atmosphere for a steakhouse. Rather than a chic, modern...More

Steak was nice. It didn’t come with any accompaniments so we ordered some sides. Some mark up on the sides! $9 for half a potato. Waiters so unfriendly. The most they spoke was when delivering the bill, explaining that as we weren’t from the US...More

We left the hotel and crossed the street and had a nice romantic dinner for two at this place with a nice bottle of red californian wine and two medium cooked steaks. Very cozy and well managed restaurant. Decent prices and very good taste.

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.

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.
