Perfect! Perfect meat, perfect wine, perfect service! We did pay but every penny was worth it! Waiter recommended glasses of wine to accompany our different meat dishes : a merlot and a pinot noir.. both fantastic! and the deserts and side dishes...to die for... Don't miss this place... yuuuum!

Book Boa and watch them drink Martinis at the bar whilst enjoying a delicious steak. Order a petite steak. At 8oz you won't go hungry!

We reserved a table without looking at the prices beforehand. We were a little shocked when we got the menu to see steaks for $48 and more (side dishes come on top of that) and wondered if they would be worth it. I must admit they were. We spent a little over $300 for 4 people for a main dish... More

We pitched up on an early Saturday evening in August (we were on holiday from the UK) to try to book for later that evening. Santa Monica is packed on summer Saturday nights but William the maître d was friendly, hilarious and accommodating at getting us in. And it did not disappoint. I think the best steak I have ever...

The food and service are both excellent, but the two person tables here are too small. The steaks are excellent and the table-side caesar salad is delicious. Outdoor eating is a treat as well.

We went for a business lunch in early August 2015 and had an excellent table outside. You could see the water but not really hear the traffic so that was great. The service was fantastic and our server was very patient and gave great suggestions. The people I was with had the steak and they told me that it was... More

Excellent steak and sides cooked to perfection although a bit pricey to be with the beautiful People of Santa Monica. Our table was in a draft caused from the door to the outside area which spoiled what was an excellent meal.

Our visit was impromptu recommended by the concierge at Sheraton. We were walk ins and lucky to be seated even though it was outside and a little chilly. The entree was oysters freshly shucked and damn beautiful,main was rib-eye rare with the best Caesar salad mixed at the table by very capable chef all in all worth the money and... 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.
