Disappointment overall. The 21-day bone-in rib eye was asked to cook medium rare. Whet it came, it was medium well or even welldone. The waiter tried first to explain that the dry piece of meat is just as asked. Finally I got a new steak cooced medium rare. Also saffron jumbo prawns were not juicy at all, the were dry. My partner had cheviche that was rather tasteless and petit filet that was also dry instead of medium. The change to our previous visit two years ago was significant, yet the price was very high.

All around excellent experience. We had a reservation st 8:00pm for 4 people. we arrived right at 8 and were given a choice between one open table on the patio or inside, we chose patio and were promptly seated. The patio was lively but not too loud. We had a nice view and it was not so loud that we could not enjoy our conversation.

The service was very good and well orchestrated. Many people commented on the fact it was confusing because several people came To your table throughout the dinner. It did not bother us, everyone was friendly, helpful and attentive without being over bearing.

We started with the goat cheese baklava and Caesar salad. I am a fan of all things goat cheese and this did not disappoint! The Caesar was probably one of the best Caesar salads I’ve ever had. The salad is very simple and fresh but the dressing has a kick, maybe horseradish, that takes it to the next level.

Everyone ordered a steak with rub/sauce which all came
Out cooked perfectly.

I would definietly recommend this for a nice dinner if you are in Malibu/Santa Monica!

Great location and ambience. Had eaten at Boa in Las Vegas and was not disappointed then or now. It was just me and my 12 year-old son. Waiter was great and did not rush us at all; perfectly attentive. Food was all prepared wonderfully. Wine list was very good.
Would eat here again without hesitation.

Great location, fantastic service and the food is always great. We had the bone in filet and crab legs which are as good as any steakhouse. The mashed potatoes and Mac n cheese off the hook. Amazing suggestion for dessert. The energy is always good and the people watching is fun. A great place for a date, business or your birthday!

Went with my 2 BFF’s, great environment. First Rib eye was cooked wrong, but they corrected it with a new Rib Eye & it was good. We went to see what it was like & it was 3 out of 5.

Boa is consistently fantastic from the cocktails to the wine list to the wide variety on the menu. It's always first class.
Tthe table side prepared Caesar salad is a must.

We are becoming regulars here at BOA. I absolutely love the food and the service is always amazing. The only issue is that this time, we were sat next to two large parties, and given that we were celebrating Valentine's, it did put a damper on the vibe. Next time, I will request a quiet table.

Overall, this place is absolutely worth the price and I love it.

We knew BOA from a last visit 8 years ago in LA. This experience was really disapointing. The food was just "average" and the prices were really overrated.
We will not come back !

It was very elegant and classy. But at the same time you can bring young kids to this environment and still get simple food for them! The staff was amazing and the food was spectacular I will definitely be going back.

Everything was great! Staff was very attentive! The only downfall was the couple two tables down that caused a scene and used vulgar language as she made her exit. Aside from that I will continue to be a customer at your establishment.
