Bobo Social is a unique and quaint restaurant/bar in Charlotte Street. A gourmet burger restaurant that couldn't look further from a burger restauran! A shabby chic interior with charity shop hunted crockery, linen napkins and inviting country tables and benches, all make Bobo Social stand out from the other burger chains and make it a place you can sit down and enjoy a relaxing 3 course meal, rather than a dash in and out vibe.Lunch is served from 12pm - 3pm Monday to Wednesday and dinner is served from 6pm - 10pm Monday, Tuesday and from 5 - 10pm on Wednesdays. The kitchen is open from 12pm - 10.30pm Thursday - Saturday.
Interesting experience here. We went for the Experimental Burger Society they had and it started off quite well. They had 2 for 1 cocktails and we sat down at a shared table with 2 other couples.
We had a choice between wild boar, beef and zebra and they were all great. From there, the evening took quite a turn. I went for the zebra and it tasted like overcooked beef. Given the service we received, it wouldn't surprise me if they messed the order up. Of the 14 people there, we felt like we weren't given any attention, but the big table who did a group booking, got everything they wanted. 3 orders at our combined table were just missed out or forgotten about, despite the fact that everything was written down on a card. The end result was a completely average burger, a complete lack of extras (that they charge for) as I added bacon and got 2 tiny mini sized pieces, my partner added blue cheese and got probably less than a spoonful.
I had to go up to the kitchen to ask about all the late side orders we placed, when I asked the waiter, he asked the chef and the chef immediately dropped his knife and sauntered over to the cooker. As if he had somewhere better to be for his night of work? Honestly, if you don't want to be there then don't be there. The bartender was awesome though, so he was a saving grave on the service list.
Would I recommend the experience? For upwards of £70 for 2 people, probably not. The burger making was fun and informative, but you'll find a tastier burger at Five Guys.
Went to BOBO social yesterday for lunch, we were the only 3 people in the room, yet the waiter managed to get every single thing wrong. He gave the drinks to the wrong people, then one of the burgers had onion even though we had asked without, he insisted that one person added cheese to their burger even though they didn't want it, and also insisted they had it medium/rare instead of medium as requested, then we had asked for two portions of sweet potato fries, one with truffle (as advertised) and one without. He got them mixed up and gave them the wrong way round, and we only realised after all the fries without the truffle had been eaten. Clearly the ones with the truffle had barely been touched, and even when we pointed it out he didn't think of not charging those so we still paid for them. Finally, when it was time to pay, he gave back a receipt with the wrong card which caused some confusion as to which card he had actually tapped and/or whether he tapped one of them twice. The food was alright and hence the 2 stars, otherwise the service gets 0. Also there's an Entrance sign on a door that doesn't open.
I visited Bobo social for a burger dinner with the friend. It was early Friday night and we were the only one across the whole restaurant which was quite awkward. I tried their classic Bobo burger and my friend the one with the mushroom. Both were dry, tiny and of basic quality. The same also applies for the fries. On top of that, I wouldn't say that this is a cheap place or the prices correspond to the quality provided. I wouldn't visit again.
Took my 10 year old son, who loved the Bobo burger. My peanut butter burger was also excellent. Great staff.
Had an incredible experience, fine burgers and good veggie options. Joan is demon cocktail bar tender, he made the best porn, star martini ;)
