BOA is absolutely one of the finest steak houses in LA! Everything about the restaurant is well thought out and executed...sensational food, service and ambiance. Consistently found service at BOA to be personable, professional, friendly and attentive. Oysters were outstanding, wedge salad is awesome, Porterhouse is done perfectly, and their sides and desserts are decadent. Excellent all around five star... More

We were vising friends and decided to stop in for lunch. Ordinarily would not consider a steak house for lunch but took a chance and had a terrific meal. I enjoyed their version of a Cobb salad which was light and tasty. My wife enjoyed the shrimps and quinoa salad. The portions were ample and the service was excellent. A... More

The choices and the quality of the food was good. I had a New York strip (ordered medium) with mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts. I got my steak well done, but never got a chance to tell staff that was not as ordered and over done. Secondly, the waitress preferred the guests next to us in offering better service, such... More

This steakhouse is situated right in the busiest parts of Santa Monica and I would avoid it at all costs because it's a tourist trap!!!! I came here for a birthday party on a Friday evening and had a few drinks at the bar before the party arrived. Ordered a Johnnie Walker black on the rocks knowing that it'll probably... More

Quick review Great if you want to push the boat out This is in the main a steak house and the menu reflects this. Set on the ocean front but it isn't a particularly great setting as the road in front is constantly congested with traffic, as is the pavement with people constantly passing. We ate in. I had French... More

Visit here every time in Santa Monica- Just one of our staples. The reservation process is right on track. They call to confirm and make you feel special when you arrive.

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.
