    I really wanted this to be perfect, but no matter how many times I think about it - the food wasn't up there. Bread was very dry, Asparagus was full of sand (every single one of the 6-7 I tasted), Lobster really boring and finally the steak was dull and simply below average. Wine was better, but not mindblowing. I am a frequent traveller and try to always find time to check out the local restaurants where ever I go. BOA Steakhouse is no way near worth the money compared to other places around the states and even around the globe. The place is nice, but the quality of the food is down the ladder. Not directly bad, but no way near a top restaurant. They try so hard to make you feel good, and then the kitchen just lacks a lot. What a pity.

    The $$$$ rating often keeps me from eating at this restaurant, just a block from my house. Whereas it's quite expensive for dinner, I'd call it just $$ for lunch. It's a very pretty spot and the food is excellent. Definitely a place for either a casual lunch or to take someone for a special occasion.

    BOA has been my go to for meetings, celebrations, or a quick dinner when in LA. I am usually impressed with the service, but my most recent visit left an awful taste in my mouth. Upon arriving, an emotionless host greeted me by saying it would be at least 15 minutes to be seated because they are busy. When I asked if they are typically late she responded abruptly: “Go to the bar and I will let you know when the table is ready.” I must have upset her, because when I was seated next to the kitchen. My dinner was with an on air personality, and we were constantly distracted by waiter banter. I asked if I could move to another section, I was told they were holding that section … at 10:30 pm as the restaurant was slowly emptying.

    This was my first time dining at BOA and it was everything and more than I expected. The service was incredible from everyone in the restaurant which made the experience unforgettable. The food was great, we ordered the signature table side Caesar Salad along with the Petite Filets and Twice Baked Potato all of which were great. Truly a sunday we will remember for a while.

    We have been to Boa in the past and were excited to enjoy another meal. The food was very good and prepared perfectly. Our problem was with the environment. We unfortunately did not get an outside table and the interior was extremely hot. We usually enjoy a bottle of red wine with our steaks but it was so hot that we could not think of having wine with dinner. We told our server and they did try to adjust the temperature but it only helped a small amount. We would go back, but if we had the same issue, we would not stay and dine.

    I'd long felt - before going there - that BOA was a 'hip' restaurant, favoring style over substance. A recent visit changed that perception. The staff was super-friendly, the food was terrific and the ambience was very laid back. I think we've found a new neighborhood fave.

    Boa was excellent. We both had steaks that were amazing. They were cooked perfect and extremely tender. I had a blackberry mash cocktail that was fabulous. We also had cheesecake dessert with a raspberry gelato that was excellent as well. The staff was great, and the atmosphere was good as well. No complaints.

    We were at Boa on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was busy, but not completely full. All the food was excellent, especially the steak tartare and the filet. But the service was really sub-par for a restaurant like this. Our entrees came out while we were still enjoying our appetizers. I asked for the sommelier to come back in a few moments after he handed me the wine list, but he disappeared for so long that we were well into our entrees without wine. Our waiter disappeared for long stretches (like when he could have taken a wine order). There was a whole army of staff at Boa, constantly going back and forth near our table, yet getting someone's attention was nearly impossible. I'm sure we can find better places in LA.

    The best steak we have had so far! The knife literally cut through the steak like butter. Definitely try the Parmesan cheese french fries. Their garlic mashed potatoes are to die for. It was my birthday and the staff surprised me and my friends with a delicious dessert adorned with a firework! One of our best dining experiences to date.

    This app won't let me choose anything but "quiet" or "can't recall" for noise level so I'll state here it was noisy. Ambiance was great - good vibe here. Tuna tare tare was substandard. Steak was great - not sure why they encourage you to dilute the great quality meat with sauces and rubs. Sides were good. Great wine list. Service was really slow which was surprising considering it wasn't fully busy. Overall we enjoyed it but I had high expectations and they weren't met. Seemed very disorganized. This place could be so much better.

From the time we walked in the door, the staff was exceptionally friendly. The food was great... especially the Cesar salad. They make it at your table. YUMMMMY!!!!! Would definitely go back!!!!!

    My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary. The ambience and service was absolutely amazing however we were not too thrilled about their mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. The filet mignon and organic chicken was great, we just have had better sides from other places such as Flemmings and Ruth Chris. Nonetheless, it was a really nice atmosphere so If we do go back I'll try something else off the menu.

    When you first are seated you will notice the attention to details and the impeccable service. Sometimes the waiters are falling over each other because they want to give great service. All of the staff was pleasant and personable without the typical LA attitude. The food quality was very good. You certainly will not be disappointed.
