    Always solid. Staff and management is top notch. Sirloin salad and burger were on our tab plus a few beers. Can’t go wrong here!

    Food came almost cold, eggs were not well cooked and food was expensive for the quality and quantity you get.

    Had an Open Table reservation for dinner for my family to celebrate my son’s honor roll achievement. We live locally and my son just loves BOA. Showed up and indicated we had a reservation and the hostess did a confusing stare and replied that there “was no way we had a reservation because they were completely booked”. Stunned I showed her my confirmation of our reservation, and she still denied us. But, offered to have us wait in the bar for a table to open up. Wtf?! We ended up waiting, only because our Son chose BoA for his celebration. Finally got seated and throughly enjoyed our server, and the food. If you come here, and you book a table on this app, be aware that the hostess may deny your reservation exists, even if her two eyes view the confirmation. Five stars to the server. Four stars to the food. One star to the hostess.

    Amy was awesome! The jalapeño shooters were the crowd favorite along with the lemon drops.

    We went because of the high ratings. Great service but loud. Fine dining prices with pub quality food and atmosphere. Bay area prices +30%. Had to eat the burger with a fork and knife it was so messy with the pint of barbecue sauce slathered on it. Seems unnecessary because the meat patty was quite excellent. A one and done for us.

    Most of the food was very good; although it took about 40 minutes for our server to bring it out. The beef on the tenderloin salad was very red and we asked if they could cook it more. The chef said they were not able to do that. The server and host/ hostess were very nice. Very busy and noisy environment. We would eat there again, though.
