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.

I have never had a bad meal or bad experience here. The laid back vibe of BOA Santa Monica was perfect for us to end our day out and about by the beach. Our server Steven knew his stuff and was very attentive and a joy to chat with. We literally ate everything we ordered, including the complimentary dessert they offered us for our anniversary. We basically needed to be wheeled out of there.

The food was not good. I’ve been to this location a few years ago and really enjoyed the entire dining experience but this time around the quality of the food was not the same. My steak came out cold and was not made to my specifications. The Ceasar salad was wilted. Over all the quality of the food was not what I was expecting from this restaurant. It was a $400 meal that was not worth the money. I should have went with my first mind and stuck with tired and true Mastro’s

Everyone from the Host William to the servers are incredibly warm and thoughtful.
William sets the tone for the evening that the crew upholds.
The food of course, is exquisite.

45 minutes to get a drink…..then another 45 minutes later for the food to arrive. Our waitress was good, but she was overwhelmed with no real help at her station. There are definitely issues at the front desk.

We were extremely disappointed at the food and service of this BOA location. Out of 4 steaks, 3 of them were over cooked or undercooked!

Although our waiter was good and the restaurant wasn’t that busy - service was slow. We had to wait a long time for drinks, apps, and food to arrive.

For the price they charge, I expected superb food and service which is what I’ve often received at the West Hollywood location.

I couldn’t continue with review w/out completing the entire survey. We were seated promptly but left promptly. The booth next to us were obnoxiously loud, disrespectful and offensive. They were screaming profanities. We left w/out causing a scene. With all the shops being boarded up starting 11/3 up we felt the least friction the better.

I was celebrating life. Just celebrating my awakening and how great it felt to find myself and be happy w being me. So we went here to enjoy a nice meal. Everything was beyond amazing!!! The hostess was so nice, we were late but they were able to accommodate us.

Our server was beyond amazing. Always giving us suggestions about what to eat and drink. He’s amazing.
I would totally get the same exact food again when I go back there.

Excessive noise was due to traffic as our table was located on the street corner. Recommend you request a table that is not located there. The staff were amazing and very attentive. All were doing their best to make this a great dining experience. Food was amazing!

Trying to offset COVID situation and it’s impact but it was so mediocre that I can’t help but note the steak was overcooked and the size was smaller than expected. It was not as waiter described as we went with an off-menu shared cut. Side dishes were not seasoned and offered little to no flavor. Highlight was Goat Cheese Baklava. Went downhill from there. Didn’t recover even with birthday dessert. Cookies were very dry and chocolate sauce watery thin.
