If your font has a bold variation then you should be using that else you are leaving it upto the browser how to render the bold version.
But you can try adding this to your css

-webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;

Found out that Open Sans (using Google Fonts plugin) is displayed only in bold in Safari. So yes, it's the browser issue. I had to find a different font.
Thanks
