The worst dining experience I've ever had....

From the moment we walked through the door the experience was horrible. The sour pussed hostess claimed not to have our reservation at the time we made it for, next she begrudgingly seated us in the worst possible table she could find (next to the bar and service area) and then ended with the manager asking when we planned on leaving. This is not a joke, the manager came over and asked how long we would be because he had people waiting on the table. The food was decent (however very rushed) and I have to say the place was charming but PLEASE train your employees. I'm sorry that your hostess can not write down the correct time in a book, it sounds challenging and I've never actually done it but I'm sure someone out there could do this job. And the manager? This is the guy that handles your customer relations??? I love a $500 meal coming to a close with someone asking me when I plan to leave. Too many good restaurants out there to waste your time on this one.

Comforatble Elegance

The design of Bobo is something that needs to be seen. Soft fabrics mingle with marble bars and antique fireplaces as crystal chandeliers tumble from the ceiling in this converted west village town house. A perfect match for all this elegance, the service is warm and accommodating and extremely good at what they do. The food is beyond reproach. My date and I loved the chestnut soup and steak tartar (seriously, one of the best in the city) . Her fish was delicious and the pork fricassee I had was tremendous. This is definitley a "must go" for anyone looking for a great meal in a beautiful setting.

The bohemian theme should not go along with the food

Walking into the basement entrance of this brownstone converted restaurant, you are greeted by a friendly staff and and a romantic decor which screams promises of a magnificant dinner. Unfortunatley the same cannot be said about the kitchen. Even though the menu was limited, the selection was diverse enough to satisfy many palates. What i was served was a poor excuse for gnochi and my dates chicken was drier than the antique wood that decorates the establishment. Overall, the place was nice and romantic and would be a favorite spot of mine if the food was only better.
