Anniversary dinner couldn't have been better!

My husband nd the fish of the day - halibut.. which he rated 7/10. BOA has a gf menu as well (which is great for a celiac like myself). I had the centre cut filet mignon with peppercorn sauce (medium). We ordered 3 sides: asparagus, garlic mashed potatoes, and chipotle/lime corn. My steak was... read more

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

Steak was great but you would expect that, the real hero here is the seafood tower - Like a party on a sky high dish and everyone there is awesome. It would probably be my last supper.

I went there to have lunch and I found the place very pleasant. However it's a little pricy place for a steak.

Love this restaurant. The service is 5 stars, starting with the hostess. The waiter was just great and knowledgeable. We were a group of 6 people and everybody LOVED their dishes. They have gluten free menu, which is essential for me with celiac. Actually most of their items are gluten free and they have also great deserts, and a gluten... More

The interior design of this place is cool andd chic. The service is too fast, you feel like they want to push you out. The food is very good. So if I want meat in Santaa Monica I will go back.

Seriously - the Wagu steak is that good. Grilled to perfection. MacnCheese and Brussel Sprouts if you needed to know.

Great drinks (recommend blackberry crush) for pre dinner. The Caesar salad is a must. They make it table side -- the waiter recommended to get everything put in (anchovies + garlic) and it did not disappoint. We ordered different cuts and the group of four was all pleased. They are known for their dry aged New York strips (which I... More

Boa is well known for its steak, the best in Santa Monica. The highlights: great service, great food including an awesome mac & cheese, the wine cellar is wide and deep. The atmosphere is adult and elegant. Valet parking available.

Meal for three was wonderful. Tender veal, perfectly cooked sea bass and truly jumbo shrimp. Sides and Appetizers were also excellent. Service was prompt and very courteous. I expect all this to be the case in a very expensive restaurant. What irks me is not only that the "suggested gratuity" listed on the bill is 18-20%, but that the amount... 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.
