A meal for three adults ended up costing $250 !!! The food and service was fantastic, but I won't be eating here more than once a decade.

“Great, trendy steak & seafood restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2010

Went here with four others for a business dinner. The place is very trendy The bar service was excellent and very attentive. We shared the mixed seafood platter of crab, lobster, clams, mussels and oysters. All were excellent. I had the bone-in rib-eye which was perfectly cooked and very good. They offer a variety of rubs and (on the side) sauces, but I was quite satisfied with the steak just with salt and pepper. I strongly recommend their specialty corn - mixed with peppers and spices. The bartender recommended it and all five of us loved it. The baked potato, sauteed mushrooms, and their specialty macarroni and cheese were outstanding. We were too stuffed for dessert. I will return the next time I'm in Santa Monica

“Visited in 2008 - My girlfriend will never stop raving about this place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2010

Ok so its a delayed review (We visited in 2008)

We have visited Steakhouses in Santa Monica, Las Vegas, Boston, London, New York and many other places and Boa is without a shadow of a doubt the finest we have ever been too! The Steaks are cooked to perfection (Medium Rare) and the lobster mash is to die for. We live in the UK and i am my girlfriend would visit Santa Monica again just to return to Boa!!!

Highly Recommend, if ever in Santa Monica make sure you visit Boa!

P.s. our second favourite is Boa in Las Vegas ! (Only second because the setting is nicer in Santa Monica)

“Yummy, good for business dinners and big groups”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2009

This isn't cheap, but for true Californian cuisine from good quality ingredients Boa is a good choice. During American Film Market in Nov, it's stuffed full of producers entertaining on the hustle -- a good sign. Service was ultra professional. Restaurant best for business not romance.
