Classic + delicious steak

The food was great and my medium rare steak was cooked perfectly. The service at my table was very attentive and sincere. The only thing keeping this from 5 stars was the girl who checked me in made me feel uncomfortable about wanting a dining room table (rather than a seat at the bar) as a single diner even though...

Boa Steakhouse had a great atmosphere! We were seated by the bar area and had a great meal! Boa also had a great wine list choose bottles, by the glass or 1/2 decanter which was perfect for us! Very romantic spot also!

We had booked online. I was disappointed at not getting a table in the conservatory like last time but realised you had to state that preference. But it gave us a chance to compare our last experience. The first thing we were struck by was noise. Coming from all different directions: neighbouring table – they were trying to get themselves...

Not to be missed when you are in the area. Staff is warm, friendly and fun. Special of the day meatloaf was the best I've ever had!

Well located on Ocean drive. The lunch menu is not very extensive but the flank steak special of the day was delicious. Service was a bit slow but the quality of the food more than compensated. Not to go on a tight budget.

We have dined at both BOA Steakhouses, Santa Monica and West Hollywood. I personally prefer the one in Santa Monica since the tables are not too close to each other. As for the food they are very comparable. The steaks are good quality and reasonably priced; however, every time we go to a steakhouse, I always compare the quality and... More

I had eaten at the Boa location in the Forum at Caesars Palace a couple times (now closed), but had looked forward to trying the Santa Monica location. I'm glad I got that chance! I ate with a group so we shared multiple appetizers, all of which were excellent. I eagerly ordered the bone-in filet and it was terrific. You... More

This steakhouse is amazing. My service was just right.. not over-bearing and not under served. The steak was prepared perfectly. In addition, the corn side, is out of this world... i have dreams about this dish. In fact, i had been to the BOA in West Hollywood two days prior with a girlfriedn and loved it so much I took...

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.
