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!!

We had a wonderful meal at BOA Steakhouse on our first night in LA. The atmosphere and service are excellent. Everyone took the time to call us by name and make us feel welcome. We had soup, salad and steak. All of it was fantastic. The make at your table Caesar salad was the best! I would recommend this steakhouse... More

The atmosphere and service at Boa in Santa Monica are great. My husband and I recently went for "date night" away from kids and had an enjoyable time. But the food was a little disappointing. He had a thick cut of steak and I had Fillet Mignon and we both felt the steak itself tasted good but not excellent--- we... More

I try to go to Boa every time I am in Santa Monica. Perfect steaks and sides, and delicious French Onion Soup. Service is awesome as well. Nice atmosphere. Good people watching.

Hands down, my favorite steakhouse! The ambiance is perfect for a romantic date night or a birthday dinner. Their bone in rib eye steak is absolutely delicious. I love to start with the hand tossed Caesar salad. It slightly has a kick, which you'll love if you enjoy spicy food. My favorite sides would have to be the mashed potatoes... More

While on a business trip to SoCal my colleagues and I were rushed for time looking for a place to accommodate six people immediately. We wanted to sit outside, some wanted vegetarian others seafood or steak - so this seemed like a perfect place. Immediately seated. Staff super friendly. We all loved our food with the exception of one colleague... More

We stumbled across this restaurant on the main beach front road when looking for somewhere to eat, we hadn't booked but they managed to squeeze us in, if we'd had looked at the prices more closely we probably wouldn't have gone in but it was our last night there so we thought why not. When we tasted the food we... More

This restaurant was recommended by a relative in LA. Went on a Tuesday night but was still pretty busy. Probably the most expensive steak I have had. I ordered the Wagyu. Excellent idea of ordering it by the oz. I ordered the minimum quantity but it was so rich that was more than enough. Good selection of wines by the... More
