Bo's Kitchen & Bar Room Ratings and Reviews
The fried chicken with biscuit dish was outstanding! We didn't like the roasted oysters appetizer so they told us they would take it off the bill - without our asking. The cocktails were delicious- I love the Ramos Gin Fizz which I hadn't had in years since I was in New Orleans at Commanders Palace! I have been searching for it! The desserts looked good, but we passed on those this time. The singer played acoustic guitar- he was great. We could still converse without strain, despite sitting close to the singer. One table loved one of the songs and the 4 of them sung along which was fun. The ambiance was overall upbeat and friendly. Casual modern décor- turquoise colored walls. The cushioned chairs were very comfy - at our table for two. It wasn't a large place so tables were close but not extremely so. There was enough room to pass on either side and no one bumping into the chairs when they pass by ( a pet peeve of mine). There were semi- circular banquets for parties of 3 or more. The age range was 20's to 60's. Nice bar scene at the front- not overly packed at the bar for a Saturday night. There were lots of small and large parties, some people on dates. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. We will definitely be back.
Our lunch date was a celebratory one, in which we came for restaurant week but enjoyed the cocktails and additional plates as well. Our server ended up being the manager Emily, who was fun, attentive, and had a great station picked on Pandora. We will definitely come back for dinner, as we enjoyed both the food and ambiance, and would love to try it at another time of day. Thank you for making our lunch great!
Food took over an hour. Waiter explained there was a flood or something in the kitchen. There was no apologies or even an offer to get us a round of drinks. The food was so-so. When we were finished, there was no waiter around. Eventually I got up and found the waiter sitting at the bar. Terrible experience never going back there again.
Disappointed. Came from out of town but the food was overly greasy. Fried alligator had more breaded red peppers than actual alligator and there wasn't anything special with the alligator part either. Oysters were off that night too. The one highlight was the baby octopus tacos - tasty but also overly oily.
Total waste of money. Food we did not finish. My professor indeed just spat it out.
I wish this restaurant refunds my $37 for stupidly portioned 2 tacos.
Way way way overpriced too.
with $37, we could have gotten much better lunch at anywhere in Madison SQ area + nice dessert. Indeed, we went out for 2nd round of lunch and dessert. Spent only 20 min there... (19 min of waiting for food, and then we left in 1 min!!!)
Sorry, as a global traveler/worker, I try 1000+ restaurants and this is definitely on bottom two.
Right from the greeting everything was very welcoming and inviting and the seating was so comfortable in the semicircle booths. The Artisinal cocktails were exceptional and there was such attention to detail even down to the big square ice cubes. the food was obviously very well sourced and was absolutely delicious ! this is our second time here and we will be there again
Great spot for a date and the food is fantastic . They don't have a large menu but the quality of the food makes up for that . The drinks are good and not watered down . The staff is attentive but not overbearing . GREAT JOB CONTINUE WITH WHAT YOU'RE DOING
I really enjoyed myself. I love the paintings and especially the "Yeah you right" sign. The staff was very friendly, fast and efficient. My boyfriend wanted to change his dish because he is allergic to cheese and the chef came out himself to make sure he got the order correctly. That was a 5 star service right there. The only thing I would recommend is more healthy food options on the menu. I am training so I only could choose the chicken gyro and I had to skip out on my fries. :( But overall the experience was great
The hand-crafted cocktails are delicious. The bar and dining room are cozy. Everyone in our party of five enjoyed their meals. The hangar steak, fried chicken, salmon, and the pasta were tasty. My only complaint was with the service. Our server disappeared as we waited for our meals. No one came by to ask if we wanted more drinks. We were asked how our meal was at the end of eating it. We waited 15 minutes to be served coffee and tea and then 20 minutes to get our check. I asked another server to find our server and ask for our check. I could understand some of the wait time but we sat down at six and the restaurant was not that busy.
Great atmosphere and high energy. Food was good and unique. Server was great for suggestions and guidance for "shareables". Shrimp or Grilled octopus tacos were excellent, Alligator bites also wonderful. The sauce they served with it was good enough to eat with a spoon!! My only negative was once the band started it was impossible to talk....
Bo's was a nice choice for a Friday night double date. The bar area was busy for happy hour and it was fairly noisy however a conversation was able to be had. The menu was a tip of the hat to New Orleans style cuisine featuring some of the highlights of traditional New Orleans fare, but not necessarily Creole style. One negative was the Sazerac cocktail which I opted to send back as it was mostly bitters and no trace of absinthe as is listed on the menu and typical of the cocktail. The selection of a few New Orleans beers made up for it however. The fried chicken with cream kale was excellent and well balanced. The burgers were quite large and definitely could have been split. The beignets for dessert were visually different from the typical but deliciously reminiscent of the streets of NOLA and I highly recommend them as they're light and not an overly filling dessert. The servers were great but it was a bit confusing as to which one was ours as I counted a total of 5 "servers" that helped us (not a place that I imagine has designated back servers, sommelier etc which is why it was odd). I would recommend this location and look forward to going back in the future.
Everything was great, especially the food. Everyone at my table (a party of 7) had something different and we all raved about our choice.
The only thing a little weird was the music choice - it didn't really tie in with the theme of the restaurant. It seemed a little random (early 2000s R&B throwbacks); not necessarily bad, just odd. I would have expected some classic Southern/New Orleans jazz which would have really set the mood. I felt the music choice was in order to keep the place as a bar AND restaurant, perhaps appealing to a young crowd only wanting a drink? Like I said, it wasn't negative and certainly didn't affect my enjoyment, it just didn't really gel with the theme and feel of the restaurant and for anyone older than myself who didn't know the music, it could have been jarring.
Tried this spot during Restaurant Week, and I'll be back. Friendly, comfortable spot, and every course I had was excellent. In fact, I rate their fried chicken as the best I've had in Manhattan. Tasty crisp skin, incredibly tender meat. Interesting cocktails, a good wine list, and pleasant service. A winner.
Food and service were good. Menu is limited (8 items for lunch). Was hoping for more New Orleans influence but po'boy and crispy alligator are only NO-style items. Music (EDM) was a bit loud and an odd choice for style of restaurant and that it was lunch. Like the design/decor. Overall, it was good but too many choices in NYC to make another stop here.
Food is excellent and interesting. Fun to share. Everything we had was amazing including the buttery and delicious corn bread. Our waitress was the same woman as the last time we dined there and was helpful and attentive. Truly a great experience can't wait to return.
In order to get to the back tables for dining, had to literally PUSH through bar area with drunk, white hooligans. Stood inside the front door for about 15 minutes with no wait staff coming to get me to inquire about tables or reservations. Extremely slow response from waiter at the table probably due to the incredibly dense and unfriendly bar area. Definitely will not be back.
I brought a customer to dinner at Bo's. My old fashioned was perfect and my customer's Manhattan was also really good. Crispy alligator with aioli was tasty with the drinks. For dinner, we had the tuna tartare and kale salad. Both were very good, especially the dressing on the salad. I really loved the marinated steak and my customer was crazy about his Cajun pork chop.
Beautiful space, nice crowd, overall, a successful dinner.
Our server was rude and short with us each visit to our table... lots of attitude.
Alligator was average
Shashito peppers were soggy
Beignets were mushy
Pork chop was one of the worst meal of my entire life. Inedible. All of it. Three of our four ordered and no one could eat it. The 4th meal was Red Snapper which was better than pork chop but just barely... Dry and virtually tasteless. Drinks took a while as well; it was fairly busy, not slammed.
I will not return or recommend.
5 stars for the food, which was delicious! service was uneven -- very nice at the front desk, slightly surely waiter (who did make good recommendations, though). the ambiance was okay, cheerful if a little more casual than I had expected. my error was in not realizing there was live music, which made it too loud for civilized conversation. the musician himself was good, just know it'll be hard to talk if you go on a saturday night.
This place is convenient to the Flatiron District. It has a pleasant atmosphere although strangely few people were there for lunch on a Tuesday at 1, but that was actually nice because it was quiet. The service was friendly and attentive and the food was good. I had a kale salad with grilled chicken and it was delicious. My friend had tacos which he said were good. I would recommend this place.
I had been to Bo's once before for dinner on a weeknight and LOVED it. So much so that when my friends and I were indecisive on where to eat, I steered us there last night.
The good things:
-the front of house was very warm and friendly, and our waitress at the bar did an amazing job of recommending the cocktails
-the cocktails themselves were amazing as well
-the live music was great. She did great covers of classic songs and wasn't too loud
The bad things:
-our waiter was a bit brash. It's not just that he was curt, but it was to the point where he was discourteous. One example is that when we ordered shishito peppers, he very abruptly said "they are either going to come spicy or not spicy" (with zero context as to why we would care about that. We have had shishito peppers many times)
-our waiter was just plain not attentive and didn't pay attention. When we ordered the peppers as an appetizer, and made clear that we intended to order more food when our third person came, he still took 2 of the 3 menus (never to return them). Also, later when I ordered a smooth manhattan and clearly said I wanted it served up, he brought it on the rocks
-my food just NOT VERY GOOD. I ordered the pork chop originally, and was very excited to cut into it. The breading was perfect, but I had difficulty cutting it and I soon would find out why. A good portion of it (one side essentially) was literally RAW. As in not cooked at all, and chewy. I have had many a thick pork chop at nicer restaurants than Bo's, and know it is customary for it to be medium and have a pink center. This was more like rare steak. I asked to send it back and trade it for the chicken - I no longer wanted a pork chop from a kitchen that would send one out like that. Someone came over and asked "are you sure you just don't want another one ultra well done" - as if it they served it correctly and I just wanted it differently - quite condescending. The chicken i got after was underwhelming and underseasoned
In the super competitive food scene of NYC, we are always looking for a new spot with great services, drinks and food. Bo's has a stunning an peaceful ambiance, great weekday specials and good services. We loved the 75cent oysters and $3 off drink specials. The pork chop, skirt steak and scallops were just ok. I would choose Bo's Kitchen for a drink and happy hour specials. Go elsewhere for your mains.
