Steaks are up there with the best

Boa was next door to the hotel we were staying at. I was expecting this restaurant to be over priced and full of pretentious tourists but while it was expensive it was well worth the price. We never booked just walked in off the street early evening. The decor was very stylish and as we were early... read more

Love my steaks, so wanted to try a top steak restaurant whilst in LA, it did not disappoint in that respect. But the waitress made a mistake on our order and then we were not even offered a desert menu, just the bill. Beautiful decor inside. For the price they charge it wasn't worth it overall and sloppy service let... More

It's expensive- really expensive- but worth trying once if you're a local, or for a special occasion if you're traveling. The ambience is loud, slick, and fast paced. Don't expect a quiet, secluded meal- but it works, as the service is excellent. Steaks were very good, cocktails quick to be delivered and tasty.

Went here on Saturday, and it was probably the nicest meal I have had all year..up there with one of the best steaks I have had ever. We didn't have a table and had to wait as we hadn't made a reservation, which had me thinking we were just going to get forgotten about but by the time we had... More

The staff made me feel like a star. Incredible personal service. The steak was great my boyfriend had the fillet and I had the rib eye. It was cooked to perfection! You do need to order your sides such as fries separately which can make it expensive would definitely recommend a visit.

Great food and service! Was looking for a good steak for my last day of vacation and I found it. The Caesar salad is a must if you go here it's made table side and the homemade dressing is to die for has a slight spice to it could have been happy just eating that for the night! Steaks were...

We had the best goats cheese starter, we then had a fillet petite which was plenty at 8oz. Which was good. We also had 21 day aged ribeye steak which was also very good. The sides were massive easy enough to share between 2 possibly 4 very tasty. You need to order sides as mains are just the meat. This... More

Loved the location, the food was pretty awesome but damn, it was pricey! The sides were delectable. Took them home. Even a nice roasted chicken was somehow delectable. Across from beach you can see the sun come down over Santa Monica Blvd....

This is our second visit. The last was 5 years ago and I must say the service and the quality of our food and wine remains really high. I thoroughly recommend a visit to this restaurant.

I have been here at the beginning of May for a business dinner. I ordered the very expensive "40 Day Dry Aged New York Strip" (more than 50 $). I asked for a medium to well done steak but it arrived carbonized. I tried to eat it anyway, the taste was irremediably spoiled with a strong bitter tone that covered... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
