The atmosphere is not good. But the service is. Try the Caesar's salad they prepare it I front of you. The onion bricks are ambrosial, do not leave without trying them. The steaks are regular

Celebrated my 40th birthday here and have to say it was absolutely fantastic. Despite being very busy the service was great and the kobe beef was absolutely top drawer. The only slight negative was that after asking for a Guiness, I was served a Guinness in a can with a glass. A little odd for such a high end establishment,... More

A popular steak house right off the beach, this is an interesting place. It was crowded and a little noisy, but not the worst. The service was great. The wine list is amazing and they have a huge wine room that also serves as a design element. The food was all first rate but be aware, it is on the... More

On the advice of our hotel concierge we went to Boa for our last dinner in the USA, and we were not disappointed Great steaks (all 4 cooked to perfection), good wine list, expert service all led to a great night. This is not a cheap night out but we'll priced for the experience. Thank you

We came here on the basis of the good reviews we saw on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Our waiter was fantastic and recommend a lovely bottle of pinot noir. I can't recall his name but he was brilliant. We ordered the crab and shrimp to start. My shrimps were absolutely massive and were delicious. However I was... More

Views of the water, modern decor, people watching. Food quality and choice outstanding. Importantly, kids were treated well even though it is very much of a scene. Portions are massive- 2 adults can share 1 with sides. Homerun in terms of a hip/high energy steakhouse.

We had heard that this place was pricey but delicious - and this was very true. Our filet mignon was just perfect - and the 'onion brick' a great accompaniment, washed down with a nice bottle of Chilean Red. Service was very good indeed. Well worth a visit.

Have you ever heard the saying "You get what you pay for". Well that saying is true with this restaurant. The food was great, but what you really get for the money is the service. Our service was incredible. We put on the reservation that it was our honeymoon. Without even telling the staff, they knew upon our arrival and... More

Visited this restaurant earlier this week for the first time at the recommendation of the hotel concierge (celebrating two birthdays). Seated promptly in their sidewalk patio (spacious) by friendly and smiling hostess. Highly recommend the patio for people watching. Ahi Tartar appetizer with a slight lemon zest had great flavor. Crabcake (one) was one of the best I have ever... More

Visited once before 5 years ago when in LA so thought to try again. Steaks were wonderful - cooked perfectly and the market vegetables were also great. Steak Carpaccio entrée was excellent. Napa Valley Cabernet recommended by the waitress was also very good. Service was prompt and thoughtful. Definitely will go here again.
