While on a business trip to SoCal my colleagues and I were rushed for time looking for a place to accommodate six people immediately. We wanted to sit outside, some wanted vegetarian others seafood or steak - so this seemed like a perfect place. Immediately seated. Staff super friendly. We all loved our food with the exception of one colleague... More

We stumbled across this restaurant on the main beach front road when looking for somewhere to eat, we hadn't booked but they managed to squeeze us in, if we'd had looked at the prices more closely we probably wouldn't have gone in but it was our last night there so we thought why not. When we tasted the food we... More

This restaurant was recommended by a relative in LA. Went on a Tuesday night but was still pretty busy. Probably the most expensive steak I have had. I ordered the Wagyu. Excellent idea of ordering it by the oz. I ordered the minimum quantity but it was so rich that was more than enough. Good selection of wines by the... More

So, we've been to Boa Santa Monica many times. Hubby used to work in Santa Monica and I'd join him here often, even for lunch. So for my birthday, on a Sunday night in September, I requested Boa Santa Monica. Sadly, we left home without our usual bottle of wine from our cellar. Oh shucks, full price wine. Then I... More

We chose this lovely Santa Monica restaurant to celebrate my daughter in law's birthday. This spot is my daughter's favorite LA destination. The stars of the show were the steaks. Four adults had the small filet. Each one was done to perfection and served at just the right temperature accompanied by nicely prepared Bernaise sauce on a small bed of... More

My daughter and I stopped in here for dinner on a Thursday evening and although we didn't have reservations they promptly seated us in the lounge area and they were very accommodating. The service was excellent and so was the food. The atmosphere was lively and trendy. We enjoyed everything about BOA and highly recommend.

We took a group of 25 people here for a dinner and it was amazing. I had the soup of the day, which was mushroom and it was the best mushroom soup I have ever put in my mouth. The steak I ordered was cooked to perfection and almost tender enough to cut with a fork. I highly recommend this... More
