Bobo is the elder sibling of Carlos Suarez's Casa Nela group, which includes Village hits, Rosemary's, Roey's and Claudette. The place is easy to miss, as the entrance is downstairs; but walking in off the busy corner at W 10th and 7th Ave, guests are transported to a chic French country home with sizable bar area, parlor level dining room, and gorgeous year-round garden.

The restaurant serves dinner and weekend brunch, offering classic French country cooking lightened for their West Village neighbors - confit lamb shoulder, chicken cocotte grand mere, chocolate mousse, and bistro stand-bys like oysters and panisse.

My Mom came down for Thanksgiving dinner, our very first with my s/o. Incroyable. This restaurant is warm and festive, polished and cheery, like an elegant embrace from the wealthy French godmother I never knew I had (in her well-appointed country house). the food was everything you want rustic French food to be: both infinitely polished and accessible, both well-executed and comforting, both filling and light.

Yes, we waited for a table, probably 10-15 minutes, but can you really call it waiting when you are sipping G&T's in good company on comfortable barstools in flattering candlelight, the perfume of meals tres bien cuit invading your senses?

Can you call it waiting when, after a discreet inquiry regarding the wait for an open table, the manager of the restaurant himself comes over, makes graceful small talk and while apologizing, pops a cork to pour everyone a glass of champagne? (David, you are an angel.)

A very good Thanksgiving indeed. The s/o, who is a generally dolorous gourmand and tends to snub any place for any (real or imagined) gastronomic offense, gave Bobo the highest compliment of all: As we left, he whispered, "We should come back here."

I have fun/great memories of this place..Famous Bloody Mary lacked its usual punch though. And bummed that they don’t have Beignets on their menu anymore.

This is my second visit to Bobo. The setting is a townhouse with the second floor solely for dining. The service is efficient and helpful and the food, surprising good. It is a good spot for a date or for quiet conversation.

Staff provided sweet surprise for my friend’s birthday! But it took 30min for the app and 1hr for the food. Had we been doing the boozy brunch with a 90min limit, it wouldn’t have been worth it. Without that, the wait was long but not the worst ever.
Food was delicious!

What a surprise. Energetic and classy bar scene in the basement level and a very warm and authentic French cuisine experience upstairs. Very attentive staff. We’ll be back the next time we’re in town.

Omelettes with goat cheese spinach and ratatouille was soooo good, fresh, perfectly cooked and piping hot which I love. Mimosas nice and strong and served perfectly chilled in very pretty glasses. We were in the den not the main room so hard to comment on ambiance. Definitely plan to go back.

As it always it, the service at Bobo is fantastic. Very attentive servers made for a good evening. The food too is delicious. The noise level, however, is very distressing. It was very hard for four of to carry on a conversation that each person could hear. Not sure what can be done about that.

I dined at Bobo for the first time in several years, and it was another transporting experience. The townhouse dining room is so beautiful and cozy - it feels like you're in someone's home in the south of France. I had the kale and apple salad, the crispy skin salmon with a side of polenta, and the bread pudding for dessert. Everything was cooked to perfection and amazing. My server Diana was absolutely sensational and one of the managers Ian was so welcoming and kept checking on me. With so many small restaurants being forced to close, it's wonderful to see a gem like Bobo still going strong. And the prices are actually quite reasonable given the quality and the location. The perfect spot for a date, dinner with old friends, or even just a solo meal if you're in the mood. I can't wait to go back.

This restaurant is very nice, located in an old house on a very attractive street, but food is not good. They present themselves as a French restaurant, but they are not. Almost everything was spicy with cayenne, pepper flakes and hot paprika. I love French food and I know French food very well. This is not French, desolé.

Yet another restaurant in NYC where you are literally pounced on and guilted into NOT bringing your umbrella into the restaurant in favor of their "cute little umbrella holder". Bet you can guess which umbrella WAS NOT present after dinner. 3 out of the last 4 meals in my own home town of NYC. You'd think I'd learn by now, but the GLARES by the staff at the very THOUGHT of bringing my umbrella in with me so that...gasp...I might actually prevent it from being stolen and be able to use it to keep dry from a downpour! The freaking horror...

Hello, I am so sorry to hear that your umbrella was not in the holder when you exited, we do try to limit them coming through the restaurant, as the water creates an unsafe situation both for guests and our staff. That said, i would love for you to reach out to me, so we can discuss me taking steps to reimburse you for your umbrella. I again apologize for the inconvenience. I look forward to hearing from you!

Enjoyed Sunday brunch here in the garden room seating in the upstairs rear of the restaurant. Nice glass covered room for all season outdoor dining feel. Used a gift certificate but beware that they won’t allow the tip to go on the certificate. So if you spend less than the certificate amount not including tip you need to retain the certificate number for another visit (I hope this is the case and they didn’t totally close out the full value of the certificate).
