I topped off a weekend visiting the Santa Monica/Malibu with a fantastic meal at Boa Santa Monica. After an afternoon of exploring the Getty Villa Malibu free of charge I splurged and ate what turned out to be the best meal of 12 day west coast trip at Boa. Santa Monica can be reached from LAX hotels for only $1 each way by Big Blue Bus. A meal at Boa cost about the same as a weekend night at the LAX Marriott but in my opinion it is worth it.
A loaded baked potato will set you back $11 but it may be the best baked potato I ever ate. The boned in ribeye was delicious as was the desert. Total bill before tax about $75 with no salad or alcohol. This place is expensive but the food great as is the service and the location...... right on Ocean Drive. I'll have to save up to go back but will saver the memories of the great food. If I lived in LA this would be the place I'd wanna go on special occasions. If visitors are looking for one incredible LA dining experience this is it. Dress is casual and atmosphere is hip.
