We pre-reserved and after waiting approximately 15 minutes, we were seated near the exit of the outside patio & across from the kitchen entrance. The service was below mediocre, the food was below standard, the cesar salads were dressed with stale croutons & the place was extremely noisy. The ambiance did not reflect upscale AT ALL, more so equivalent to TGIF. Overall, terrible experiece at this place and absolutely nothing like the many experience's obtained at the West Hollywood location. Obviously, we will not be going back to this location.

I came here for dinner with a friend. We had the calamari salad and Brussels sprouts. We both wanted to get steak, but were so full, we capped it at that. Both were excellent! Charles, the manager, was great! I look forward to coming back and having steak with bacon jam! oh - and the bread with butter and bacon salt was simply delicious!

Really nice wait staff and great steak. Loved the lobster mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts and their pink melon signature cocktail was amazing!!! Meat was a tad overcooked but still really good. Open table reservations was able to note this visit as a birthday celebration, and we got a free dessert and firecracker sparkler.

The food is good. Environment is fun. But over priced. I can eat just as well for a third of the price at cheesecake factory.
The waiter was outgoing. They manager was all smiles. Just the cost...

Though certainly not an inexpensive restaurant, BOA proved to be a perfect date night for my wife and I on our anniversary. The service was the most thoughtful and genuine we’ve had. The food was better than any restaurant we’ve ever been. It is pricey, but you get what you pay for. Sitting outside while the sun sets is a perfect view of the Santa Monica ocean front. We highly recommend. And we will be going here again if we get enough to pay for the meal. For two, we ate for $200 including tip.

The server took our order and forgot to check on us the rest of the night. My friends food was cold. The bussers kept trying to remove plates before we were finished. For a $65 a plate restaurant I expected better service.
