A bit pricey, but the taste and experience is well worth it. The staff is very friendly, perfect amount of lighting, and food is amazing. Definitely worth a try if you haven't before.

We hadden't been to BOA for a little over a year. We have been going there since it opened. When we walked in we were immediately seated. We had a fantastic waitress and the service was excellent. I had to send my steak back as I am unusual in that I like it a little more than just medium. This change took less than 5 minutes. We had our favorite salad, BLT, which is a meal in itself. The onion strings were perfect. The Brussels sprouts were good but lacked something.
We did not have dessert as we were stuffed even though we only ate half of the steak, however, it was still great the next day for dinner. All I can say is that we know what we are getting at BOA and it is consistently excellent.

Th e food was fresh, beautifully presented and of course delicious. One of the best filets I've ever tasted. The onion soup was marvelous and served steaming hot. The entire experience was just lovely.

Great service. Good atmosphere. Solid food. Only wish we would've been presented with the DineLA option (only found out about it after the people who sat next to us ordered from it).

Both the filet and the flatiron steaks were delicious! The bernaise was not great and we enjoy our homemade recipe of this better. The creamed spinach and grilled asparagus were cooked perfectly and very tasty!

We have eaten here several times, and decided to come back for husband's birthday celebration. On the positive side, the staff were all excellent. Service, and attention to our needs was superb. We asked for a quiet spot and were seated on the patio which was indeed quiet (e.g. we could hear each other speak) while we were there. My drink was excellent, a blackberry -sour-ish cocktail and husbands's filet mignon was delicious. However, my piece of
Chilean seabass was sadly undercooked, and a bit bland. This is a steakhouse, so maybe that's an excuse for my mediocre fish dish, but they charge $44 for this piece of fish, so I was expecting something better. Sides are extra: mashed potatoes were great, but the smashed broccoli was a bit boring--$13 each. For the amount of money we spent, I can think of a dozen other Santa Monica places with better food for less money. But, if you want to see the sunset, and if you love steaks, and are celebrating a special occasion (they do have "special-occasion-sparklers" that are fun) then visit BOA.

Met a friend for a thank you/catch up dinner. Not hard to get a 600p reservation on a Saturday. We were allowed time to chat and order dinner. Food was delicious. Timing of food to table was great. Not rushed at all. Steaks were delicious. Baked potato was huge. Desserts yummy. We had the coconut cake and butterscotch bread pudding. Both amazing!

Had a business/friend dinner here and was amazed at the meal we had. I have been following a vegan diet and she is gluten free. We were both so pleased! Beet Poke and Nidi Bolognese for me (WOW!) and Oysters, smashed broccoli and a beautiful steak for her. Thanks for the great experience!

I had a couple of friends visit from out of town during the Christmas weekend. We wanted to have a nice dinner at a nice place. Since they were staying in Venice, BOA Steakhouse popped up on Yelp and so I made reservations.

Service was immaculate from upon entry to our leaving the restaurant. The restaurant ambiance was inviting, relaxing, and cozy. The food was delicious. My steak was cooked to perfection. The sides we got were wonderful. The star of the night were the mini yams.

I'd totally recommend this place to friends and anyone looking for some good steak.

Thank you BOA for a great dinner!

The food was absolutely delicious and melt in your mouth good. It's pricey but at the end it was worth it. Service was exceptional, we were never left waiting and everything arrived in a timely manner. Our waiter was the real MVP and extremely friendly. While we were leaving the front counter guy even said goodbye using my name. Now that's something. :)

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.
