    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.

    My 13 year old daughter and I had a blast! After our TMZ tour, my daughter insisted we go and eat there. I had to oblige. I had no problems booking a reservation. 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!!!!! BOA lived up to its reviews!

    The minute we walked in we felt welcomed by the BOA staff because we were first time patrons we didn't know what to expect but any initial concerns on my wife and I's part about how the food would taste, or what our service would be like quickly passed once we were seated and walked thru what was easily the best dining experience either of us has ever enjoyed.

    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.

    My husband and I recently dined at Boa and had a fabulous evening! We arrived a few minutes early and were greeted with a smile by the hostess. We were told that our table would be ready in a few minutes and that if we would like to wait in the lounge they would come get us. My husband told her we would grab a drink and she responded pleasantly that we should enjoy our drink and let her know when we were ready to be seated. The bar staff was just as courteous and attentive. As promised, we were seated when we were ready. Shortly after sitting, the wait staff arrived and welcomed us. The prawns, table side Caesar salad and steaks were delicious! We can't thank The Boa staff enough for an enjoyable evening!

    Im not sure what happened. The dinner was great but I woke up in the middle of the night and ran to the restroom with a stomachache. I only had a banana and some chips for lunch so I figured it must had been from the dinner at BOA. I had the Center Cut Fillet and everything taste great until 3AM.

    The patio setting was really nice (except for the few bugs coming out of the vegetation we were seated next to). The food was elegantly presented and quite good. The overall service was excellent (we were checked on frequently and the support staff was very polite). The only thing that kind of ruined the overall experience was the difficulty in getting the check. At the end of the meal we really needed to leave but getting and paying the check took maybe 20 minutes. That made us late to our next appointment.

    Lunch was part of our DineLA experience. The patio seating was very comfortable as there was a persistent cool breeze, but the restaurant has glass panels that stops any direct wind. The service was very good and everyone was very friendly. Even though the restaurant was crowded the noise level was low, maybe due to the fact that there were no children present as this was a weekday. The food was very good and presented nicely. The dessert cookie and onion rings were incredible. I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions, but be aware parking is $7 with restaurant validation.

    My wife and I felt like we were being stowed away in the back of the restaurant so we asked for a different table outside. They said there was no outdoor tables available and no booths by the windows available, but they could give us a different table. I was going to ask for the manager but decided oh well this table is ok. The food ended up being incredible and the service was top notch. I was super impressed with the food and service, and a little disappointed that we couldn't sit outside. The tables where we sat were real close together too so I ended up feeling like I couldn't have a private conversation with my wife and I was stuck listening to my neighbors complain about their jobs.
