Steakhouse
Simply put, BOA is unlike any other steakhouse. We reinvented the traditional American steakhouse to fashion a distinctly unique dining experience. That experience is bold, modern and innovative. From the seductively stylish interior to the dry-aged prime steaks, BOA’s vibrant ambiance is as alluring as the cuisine itself.

    Un bon restaurant, néanmoins, ma viande n'était pas cuite correctement. Il a fallu la renvoyer pour avoir une cuisson souhaitée. Bonne ambiance, bien situé mais beaucoup trop cher pour ce que ça vaut réellement.

    Steak was prepared perfectly and had a wonderful flavor. We had a drink at the bar before dinner and bartender prepared excellent mixed drinks and was very friendly. We requested indoor seating. The host seated us beside door to outside patio. In moments he returned and offered to reseat us because he had noted that the opening and closing of door by the servers was likely causing a chill. We were reseated to a more comfortable table. The attention to detail was amazing.

    BOA Steakhouse - Santa MonicaResponded on August 6, 2022Your positive review of our restaurant pleases us deeply. In much the same way that general citizens want guests to their home for dinner to totally enjoy themselves, this is also the way we approach our business. We desire that everyone completely enjoy themselves every day and night of the year when they visit. Thank you for the kind remarks.

    Overall—everything was outstanding-food and service. The only modification I would have made to the experience was the music. It was too loud and the genre of songs was a bit “night club”—not what I expected with a fine dining venue.

    Such a rubbish dinner… I could barley see my entrée! And the lad taking my order was Way too eccentric about the menu- Lad Literally told me the whole menu in one breath. Overall lousy dinner The candles were literally plastic The only thing good about this restaurant was the hostess William he was great and a pleasure to talk to.. William with his fantastic attitude really saved the night. Willam even charged my phone for me while I ate there’s nothing William can’t do. A very extravagant man he deserves a raise.

    BOA Santa Monica is always a treat. Friendly, welcoming management, knowledgeable and efficient wait staff, and wonderful food. Of course, the steaks are excellent; but matched in quality and inventiveness by the side dishes, especially the califlower and the tasty "onion brick".

    Dining experience was nice! Server was on point and had a great sense of humor! I like that all the servers were paying attention to every table whether it was theirs or not! It was pretty loud in there so hard to talk without feeling like you were screaming. Food tasted really good. Lobster Mac and cheese needed a little more flavor

    Service was outstanding. Food was delicious! Tomahawk, lobster tail, truffle fries and crab gnocchi were all delicious. No complaints. We walked in very late and ordered dinner two minutes before the kitchen closed. Our waiter Dylan never made us feel rushed. He had a great personality and made my anniversary and friend’s birthdays dinner so memorable!

    Our waitress was the sweetest but there was a waiter there who was challenging us on drinks when we specifically told him it wasn’t the same whiskey that my husband asked for. PS, this was his second drink already. He brought the bottle out to show us it was the same whiskey, lol buddy rather than wasting time doing that, you could’ve brought him a new drink already. It’s okay to accept you’re wrong. We weren’t trying to be rude. The Brussels sprouts aren’t that good. Steaks didn’t stand out as they should’ve. Tuna tartare was yummy but rather than that please don’t waste your money, service is everything and we left upset. Maybe we should’ve asked our waitress specifically but my husband just asked him assuming he was a bartender bringing peoples drinks because he was the one originally who brought our first drinks. Really left a bad taste in our mouths. Probably never dining at this franchise again. Nonetheless, you’re better off dining at the Beverly Hills location if you want to experience BOA.

    My wife and I were passing through LA on our way home from Hawaii and decided to have dinner at BOA based upon the reviews we read on Open Table as well as Trip Advisor. The food and Service at BOA was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. Lynette was one the best servers we have ever had frankly. She new the menu inside out, good conversation, and made good recommendations. The blackberry smash cocktail is a must if you dine with them. Will definitely visit again when in LA.

    The Mother’s Day Brunch was superb. We had a great table and a view of the ocean, which my Mom loves. Especially of note was the Maitre D’ William. He was especially attentive to my Dad who is 91 and in a wheelchair. William made the entire family feel special. A lovely touch were the beautifully packaged wild flower seeds for Mother’s Day.

    How's brunch for Mother's Day was mediocre. Food was okay, some were cold as if it has been sitting out for awhile. The service was good, but towards the end we didn't see our server as much, and by the time we were ready to leave it took us about 10-15 minutes to flag our server down. Boa's food on a regular day is way better and worth the price. But I don't think their Mother's Day brunch buffet is worth the $95/hr. Will definitely come back for their everyday dining menu though.

    Mother’s Day so very crowded understandable. Service was great. Menu made it sound like a drink was part if brunch but they were average $20 extra. Food was really good but no even pink meat for anyone not liking rare. I couldn’t even try it.

    Mother’s Day brunch. Not much selection. For the price I was hoping for different stations fresh made omelettes, waffles etc. but fell short, coffee, Oj not included in the price. Not coming back, very disappointed, also it says mother’s will get a gift 🤔. What gift? Too bad for me.
