First the service here is friendly professional impeccable. It made the meal an excellent experience. But emphasis on experience. The food is perfectly fine but does not knock your socks off. For the price it should deliver more. Steaks are tender but not terribly flavorful....More

Great staff & service and the food is simply outstanding. I eat here whenever we visit from Australia and am never disappointed. The steak here is always 10 out of 10 but I drifted and tried the chicken last week and was equally blown away....More

We enjoyed a superb meal at Boa Steakhouse last week. The steak was cooked to perfection. The seating was lovely, it felt nice and private. I Would highly recommend this restaurant for a fine dining meal.

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

As mentioned by others it is an adult restuarant but I have seen children there early in the evening. I would suggest keeping your reservation before 7pm..
