Boboquivari’s is a steakhouse in the Marina district of San Francisco. It means Venetian court jester of comedy. It’s nick name is Bobo’s and is known for 100% USDA prime beef dry-aged for a long six weeks. They have free valet parking!
Decor, Vibe – Funky decor with lots of small colorful rooms and new age music, horseshoe shaped bar on the main level. Pretty busy place, with big parties, couples, some tourists dining.
Garlic Baked Sourdough Olive Loaf was a really good complimentary bread.
Crostini con burrata ($10) with heirloom toy box tomatoes, bermuda onions & avocado in balsamic vinagrette had some really good cheese. The tomatoes were tiny but good. The vinagrette was very strong.
Filet Mignon Bone-In ($39) is their signature steak. It is a big piece of tender beef with lots of aged flavor and juice. Even the meat on the bone was good.
Mussels, Shrimp, Crab ($39) on an Iron Skillet and Roasted was an appetizer we got as an entree. It was huge and sizzling. Tons of mussels, half a crab, and a good portion of shrimp. The crab was especially delicious. 2 different types of butter dipping sauces.
Swiss Chard ($8) with garlic and olive oil was a very good side. Well cooked and very fresh.
Twice based Potato ($8) had a heaping of items inside it. We’d prefer a simple baked potato.
Moscow Mojito ($12) Stoli Vodka, brown sugar, mint, lemon, orange, splash of ginger ale was strong and not very sweet.
Portobello Mushrooms ($8) were chopped up and spicy. Just a weird side.
Boboquivari’s had very good service with a friendly and knowledgeable server. The food is decent and the atmosphere funky, making it a very romantic place albeit expensive.
While we liked their meat, we feel Harris’ and Alexander’s rank above this place for steaks. The atmosphere at these place could not be more different though.
