Extremely good food, a little pretentious

Went for dinner in April, food was extremely good, really recommend the filet mignon. Atmosphere was a little un-welcoming when we arrived, we were made to feel a bit un comfortable that we were asking for a table and had not booked. However, after having a drink at the bar we got a table quickly.

I have been here a few times, lunch and dinner. Consistently delicious. Service is exceptional at the Santa Monica location. I went with a friend for birthday lunch and they brought out desert with a sparkler, very festive. I will continue to return to Boa.

While the food here is excellent (the crab cake appetizer is a must), the people are what really make this dining experience one-of-a-kind. After getting accustomed to the general lack of courtesy and service in restaurants over the past 20 years, Boa proves an exception to the rule. Josh in particular seems genuinely happy to greet restaurant diners, making you... More

I had an exceptional dinner here at the bar. Despite being alone I had talkative and interesting neighbours and the female bar tender was excellent (name forgotten, Andrea perhaps?) I took full advantage of the half price offer on bottles and picked myself a luscious bottle of Napa merlot and ordered a rib eye to die for. As a starter,... More

Both my wife and I tried this restaurant last Friday whilst in Sanata Monica, and are we glad we did. We had just come off the Queen Elizabeth Cruise Cunard and to be honest we were spoilt with eating good food . This place took us to another level, the blue crab starter was amazing and good enough to share,... More

Had lunch. Large lunch menu. Wife had seared tuna salad. I had 40 day aged New York strip sandwich. Both were excellent. Service was great. Prices are high, especially in the evening. Quality was also high.

Great bone in ribeye and appys, from a frumpy server who clearly wanted to be elsewhere. Might be overpriced but can't complain about the food.

Just called in here and had a 21day ribeye steak with some salad and a beer. The service was great, the steak was well cooked and very tender, the salad was sadly only average, and all together I've had better meals for a lot less price!!

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.
