Service and overall experience nice but a bit pricey. Food just a bit bland for the price. This was my second visit and experience seemed to be same both times

Went here with wife and 11 year old daughter. I frequent steakhouses (Morton's, Capital Grille, Del Frisco's, etc.) and this place is easily on par. Food and staff were attentive and top notch. I liked some of their twists on the norm such as the rubs, sauces, cotton candy dessert, etc. Wine list has a lot of quality as well... More

Have always loved this steakhouse. It's not a big place but has a very nice interior, with an outdoor dining patio. Can dine in the bar area if you weren't able to get a reservation. Sunday nights they offer wine at half price off bottles, which I think is a great steal, sometimes you can find bottles on the menu... More

Just wish they offered me a box to go! It certainly doesn't compare to Maestros in terms of quality and level of service but it's still a classy restaurant.

Boa is one of the best restaurants in Santa Monica. The bone in rib eye and bone in filet mignon are incredible. They have great salads and side, I always get the Boa chopped salad. The service is always great and they have great desserts!.

Our hotel concierge booked us on a Friday evening for fun night out. We opted to "try a bit of everything" and share the starters and sides. Many options were gluten free and all were delicious. Our waiter was great and it was a great environment for a fun group night out.

My husband and I enjoyed a very nice, romantic, dinner here. There wine list is very impressive (note on Sunday's the bottles are half off!). Our server, Brian, was awesome. He provided wonderful recommendations. We enjoyed an awesome table side Caesar salad (just note it has a kick to it), perfectly cooked filet mignon, deliciously aged Ny strip and two... More

Lively place, with good cocktails, and a pretty good quality food. The cesar salad is made at the table and was fantastic. The scallops were also good. The seared tuna was not bad. Good wine. A fun night out, and good for a date. I would definitely go back, especially for a fun occasion, but would not rush to go... 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.
