I had one of the most amazing dining experiences ever at the Boa in Las Vegas, and since then I've made a point to go whenever possible. Visiting this location on a recent visit to Santa Monica was no question. Our party of 4 had an amazing time - everyone raved about the food and how this was one of... More

I didn't know you could get food poisoning from steak, until we dined at boa in Santa Monica. Not only was our server moody and unfriendly, but my husband was very ill through the night and when I contacted the restaurant to warn them there may be a problem with their meat and to complain I was completely ignored.

Great food, reliable staff, nice environment. We both had filets and they were great. Heavy on the seasoning/butter, but not too much to ruin it. Something I don't think most would order, but we took a chance on, was a Chipotle Lime Corn dish, it was easily our favorite over the garlic mashed and Mac 'N Cheese. I had two... More

One of our favorite places to go and have a nice meal when we come to visit. My favorite thing to order is the Filet, which is funny coming from Texas:) Anyway, we have never had anything but positive experiences with Boa's!

We booked Boa for the 2nd night of out brief visit to Santa Monica. This restaurant is so comfortable, trendy & warm. Our waitress was very helpful although our Irish accents made her believe that we weren't "familiar" with 'cumin' or 'frites'!!! There were 3 orders of steak 'frites', a rib eye steak & a sea bass (cooked with cumin).... More

The best steak ever, delicious. Quite pricey but worth it for a treat. Excellent service too. An idea to reserve a table as it was difficult to get in when we went on a week night.

We had a nice meal here, the food was lovely. However, it was terribly overpriced. My husband ordered shrimp, for his main course, when it came there were only 5 pieces and it was about $30! It's a nice place to go if you have the cash to splash!

Excellent service, food is very high quality & cooked to perfection. It's busy so you should book. Great atmosphere and a great location for a sea breeze walk to digest after.
