The food was delicious. I’m a vegetarian and there were many options even a gluten free menu. There was a wide variety of fresh seafood and delicious sides! The truffle gnocchi was amazing!

We were a party of 6, three of which were avid steak fans. All three rated their meal a thumbs down for taste and texture. One of us had the fish special which was overcooked and dry. The chicken was the only high rated meal of the evening. The service was great, but the noise level made it difficult for the servers to be heard. It was a huge disappointment for the price.

Overall food quality was very high. Vegetable sides excellent, try the smashed broccoli. Wine list is reasonable. Excellent overall if a bit pricey.

The tables on the outside patio are nice and quiet but the tables for two were a little too close together for my liking. I would rather not be able to hear the table next to me's topic of conversation. Food was incredible and service was awesome and funny!

If you are in the neighborhood its OK just not a very good value. Steaks are good, appetizers are good, sides are just OK, prices are about 20% too high for what you get and the really ordinary ambiance. Not appreciably higher end surroundings than Ruby Tuesday or that ilk. Watergrill down the street is a much better value and has surroundings a little more commensurate with what they charge.

Our waiter was actually pretty good. Overall service not bad. Just not up to the prices. Let's face it....over $100/person should at least warrant tablecloths.

The rib eye steaks we had were excellent, very tasty and cooked just right. Service was excellent. I particularly appreciate the extra effort they extended to my son for his birthday celebration. Just for that it is worth going back for our next family birthday dinner.
The only surprise was the cost of the mashed potato with lobster, it was $24, a bit on the high side. But we expected to pay premium for the steak dinner at a place like BOA Steakhouse so it was not a deal breaker for future family celebrations.

First and foremost let me say. The host/manager was by far the best thing at this location. I frequent at the West Hollywood location but wanted to try something different. Terrible idea. We sat and watched everyone around us receive their food and unfortunately after waiting an entire hour, ours never came. We literally only ordered 3 things. But the couple who was seated next to us and cane about 25 mins after us managed to get, appetizers, cocktails and full meals. We are still sitting waiting for our appetizer to which was only Mac and cheese. For an entire hour. Overall it was a sad terrible experience and to make it worse, we were there to celebrate my birthday. So unfortunate!!!

From the moment we walked in everyone was warm and welcoming. The decor and music was perfect.
We were here for a birthday celebration and all expections were met. The menu was so diverse that it had something for everyone in our party. Morgan was excellent in explaining our menu options and providing suggestions. We will definitely return and I would highly recommend BOA Santa Monica. We had a wonderful evening!

We went on a Sunday night when all bottles in their extensive wine list are 50% off. This made the value of their delicious fare a little more, as we were able to treat ourselves royally.

The food and service were exemplary. We had a spectacular lobster tail and a filet, and the ceasar salad from the cart was wonderful. And William at the front desk was outstanding as always.
