BOA Steakhouse - Santa Monica Ratings and Reviews
We had the best night ever at this restaurant! We were celebrating our anniversary and came here for a special night and sure did they deliver! Every member of staff was so accommodating and kind and thoughtful to us wishing us a happy anniversary and making sure we had everything we needed. Our server jennifer blew us away with her amazing service. We loved the food so much and we're so full after! It was so flavoursome and tasty! We got the Steak, BLT salad, mashed potatoes and truffle fries which were all to die for!!!!All of the food came out so fast even though it was a busy friday night! They even went the extra mile and split our meals into 2 as we chose a couple of the side options. Then as we were finished our dinner jennifer surprised us with a special anniversary dessert!!!! WOW! It was a brownie with ice cream and meringue and they made lit a sparkler! We were so happy and glad we chose this place to spend our anniversary!! Everything was beyond amazing we can't stop raving to our friends. When we were leaving they even wished us a happy anniversary once again even though their were so many people there it felt so personal. Thank you so so much!!!
Bison rib-eye was awesome. Not gamey at all! I thought it was better than the beef rib-eye although my companion had the beef rib-eye and thought it was perfect. Black truffle gnocchi was soooo good! Caesar salad also divine. Was a little overdressed but I tend to like my salads on the dry side. Waiter was fabulous. Brilliant experience. Will definitely go back.
The food was wonderful; I had a petite filet, extra rare and it was done perfectly. Everything is marinated or slathered with garlic, so what's not to like? The wait staff was attentive and very willing to work with the difficult dietary requirements of one of our group. A bit pricey but not unreasonable for the quality and service.
We had a business dinner at BOA. I ordered the center cut filet and, quite honestly, it was the best steak I have ever had and I have eaten at some great steak houses. I would recommend the specialty manhattan and the "table tossed" Caesar Salad to start with. I was a little disappointed in the wine options by the glass. All and all, fantastic outing! Service was great and I'm definitely going back when I'm in Santa Monica again. Will highly recommend to others.
Later evening table available: initial table a little close to entrance -- no problem an empty table at the window. Our main server was energetic and full of positive energy: a real pro. The other staff were efficient and pleasant-- water glassess always were refilled. Drinks were brought quickly and our order was taken smoothly. Note no problem when my wife and I opted to share an entree. Food was great -- great restaurant!
Food was really good and the service was fine. They poured very heavy with the wines by the glass and 1/2 bottles. Presentation of the food could have been better. The ambience was a bit lacking as it is super loud even on the outside dining area which was quieter than the inside. When I return to Santa Monica, I would consider BOA again but would likely try another steakhouse since our experience was simply OK. We place much on ambience and it was lacking at BOA. As mentioned, food and wine were very good, however.
Delicious meal... Jamie, Morgan & Nick worked as a team to make sure that everything we ordered came out exactly as we’d ordered it. Charles, the Manager, visited us several times to chat and confirm that all was well. The wagyu was decadent, as was the Tomahawk cut of rib-I. We added surf & turf crab legs and Nova Scotia lobster tail. Jamie suggested a bottle of wine that was delicious with our steak and when he saw that we might not finish, offered to cork it for us to take with our to-go food. BONUS! The experience was perfect. Great night out:)
Simply another example of a great steakhouse should be. BOA never disappoints and this is because the staff does whatever it takes to make it so. The bottom line is whether it’s on Sunset blvd., or here on Ocean, it’s a little slice of heaven if your religion is great food and wine. Amen.
I had originally booked for a 7pm reservation, and due to LA traffic, I had to move it down. I explained to Megan I was from put of town meeting my boyfriend for dinner, and she was very nice and accommodating. Upon our arrival, valet took our vehicle, ando we were greeted by name by Megan and another gentleman, equally friendly. We opted for outside dining and our server Joseph was very courteous and knowledgeable. Our steaks were delicious and we had an amazing dinner. Definitely worth the price, and I highly recommend. ¡Buen apetito!
We sat on the patio and watch the sunset as we enjoyed great wine and excellent food. They table side ceasar salad was excellent and has a Lil spicy kick, truly delicious. The rub on the filet was excellent and perfectly cooked! Try the lime-corn it was great!
Sent back first two appetizers. Tuna tartare was dry and tasted days old. No excuse when SM seafood is blocks away. Lamb was so over salted you couldn't taste the meat. Brussels weren't cooked. Both fish dishes were good but everything else was a bust and the management didn't offer anything to make up for our experience. Worse, despite informing the restaurant (via OpenTable) it was a birthday celebration, they did nothing to mark the occasion. Sadly, a once staple of ours is off the list.
Can never go wrong with BOA SM. Our food was fantastic as always and service was very nice.
The only negative was we felt they really cramped a lot of tables (too many) in the restaurant, there seems to be a constant traffic over our head and a little more personal space would've been really nice but we had a great time.
