So we booked a reservation at West Hollywood and our taxi driver took us here so we lost our reservation! William was perfect, found us a table, kept checking on us and made us feel right at home.

I had the rib eye, it was cooked to perfection and seasoned really beautifully- one of the best steaks I've ever had. The mushroom sauce was absolutely delicious and our sides, the corn and mash were out of this world ! I highly highly recommend this placed, its very pricey but worth it !

Boa is quite simply a steak house that serves unbelievable steaks, seafood, and appetizers. They have an awesome location in Santa Monica and highly recommend eating here for a good night out.

Got lucky with an open table by the bar so my wife could people watch. Bone in rib eye was cooked perfectly as were the sides. Not a fan of smashed broccoli but the other sides were great. Great service and drinks. Cannot wait to go back.

Beautiful isn't the word... We had the tomahawk for two and it was one of the best steaks we've ever had! My husband likes it medium rare but I'm always edgy and want medium. They cooked it medium rare and offered to cook it a bit further if I wasn't feeling daring. The chef had sliced it nicely so there... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
