Bo's Kitchen & Bar Room Ratings and Reviews

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 stopped here on a lark, and was warmly greeted and promptly served. Two appetizers were sufficiently filling that I did not order an entrée. No attitude from the staff over this, so I tipped them appreciatively.
Dinner with customer
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.
Casual friends 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.
love the octopus tacos
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.
Nice place, good food, pleasant atmospher
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

Our server was very slow and inattentive. At times the manager had to intervene to ensure we received good service. I was also disappointed with the quality of the food this time as I have eaten here at least 2 prior times.
Great Environment, Ok Food
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.
The food was good, not great. Hot peppe ...
The food was good, not great. Hot peppers were not hot, alligator was tough, octopus was passable and the savory donuts were stale, no flavor at all. The best food items were the raw oysters and the dips that came with them. The dip for the (Hot) peppers tasted like watered down mayo. Our waiter was the best and should move on to a restaurant that will be around for a while. Too bad, the restaurant itself was nice as all the staff.
Hostess was very sweet and accommodating, although the waiter was very rude the entire night and obviously did not want to be there. He did not follow up, check to see how the entrees were, and said "last call as the kitchen is closing and no changes after you put your orders in". It was rude, we were celebrating a birthday and he did not make this a pleasant experience.
Birthday dinner ruined
Took my husband and two sons there to celebrate all of their birthdays with friends. We have been there twice before. The food this time was fair but not great. We went on a Saturday night and were never told about the burlesque show. It made for a very awkward experience and it was impossible to talk. Was very disappointed all the way around!!
Appetizers were great. Maple bacon beign ...
Appetizers were great. Maple bacon beignets were a star as was the Mac and Cheese we got as an appetizer. The bread alone is rich and delicious. Needless to say we were getting stuffed by the time the entrees arrived. I got the fried chicken, which was stellar. It was fall off the bone tender, however, the sides that it came with left much to be desired. The spicy sauce that the kale was tossed with was underwhelming and flat. The Pot Pie bake was intriguing and confusing at the same time. I simultaneously loved and was baffled by it at the same time, yet it was dry and not sustained by the light drizzle of gravy. My Girlfriend had the steak which she had no complaints other than the highly salted onions. I would go back for another taste but I would get a different entree.
I really wanted to like this place but was really disappointed in the food. I had the spicy tuna tartare BLT and the charred romaine salad. Salad tasted like a leftover Chopped salad that someone didn't finish at lunchtime and the tuna was very bland.
That said, my husband had the salmon and was happy with it and apparently the kale salad was alright.
Drinks were good, though, and the place itself is fun.

Wow. Love this place. The food was excellent. I got the steak and loved it. The shishitos and cauliflower were ok but I got the beignets for dessert and it was amazing. Great cocktails! I loved the Beats Bailey and it isn't just because it has my last name in it haha. Everyone was so nice, I am definitely coming back.

Took my girlfriend out for our weekly date night. We shared everything and loved most. The fried chicken and salmon were great. The romaine salad was okay, nothing special. Large selection of cocktails and we both had several. Our server gave great drink suggestions and was very friendly. Bar was packed and looking forward to going back to try more drinks and the downstairs lounge.
A nice surprise
Really vibey restaurant with live music, great lighting and delicious food combinations. The corn bread they bring out at the start is a great treat too. Loved the snapper and the chocolate bread pudding for dessert. Better than I thought from the reviews!
Deafening noise and indifferent service
Food tasted delicious, but the tables are jammed in like a cattle car, music is loud, and every surface reflects sound, so the extreme noise levels ruined the experience. Also no waiter showed up for close to 10 minutes after seating.
