I took the Bone-In Medaillon: DELICIOUS! The steak was perfectly grilled, the smashed potatoes were amazing and the waiters were very kind and welcomed me and my family very warmly. If you are sitting on the terrasse, you also have a beautiful view to the beach. I highly recommend this Steakhouse.

I give this rating as a vegetarian. I dined there with friends. They had steak and crab cakes and they were very happy with their meal. My bamboo steamed veggies were great, tasty, very fresh and one can tell they do care to buy quality ingredients. I loved the full leaf tea and my friend enjoyed a glass of Chardonnay... More

We went here for an anniversary meal and it was excellent. The beef carpaccio was divine and the New York strip was fantastic. Wonderful service- they even bought us a dessert to share at the end to celebrate. We would definitely recommend this place!

Good steak and great drinks. Service was attentive and but not too much. My husband and I shared a steak and mashed potatoes as we weren't that hungry. We sat at a low table in the bar area. A bit pricey, but worth it.

Lunch is the best value for Boa. Service is good and the steaks are always tasty. I've been here a few times and I'm never disappointed. Even if the weather isn't sunny your view to the park, ocean and pier are a nice distraction to a nice meal.

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.
