Excellent meal and even better service. Very generous portions if that is what you are looking for. Only complaint- truffle parmesan fries are not what you would expect- they have a parmesan cream sauce on them that could be better explained on the menu. I...More

A pleasant experience for luncheon in their open air patio. Food tasty and well prepared but perhaps a tad over priced ... but then there is the location! :-) I would return again if ever in the area again.

BOA always has good service and great food. The fun part about BOA Santa Monica is that it has outdoor seating and its great to people watch. Better than my filet minion where my cream spinach, just amazing.

I've eaten at this location on many occasions and have never had a bad experience. The staff is always friendly and helpful, and the food fantastic. If you're visiting the Santa Monica Pier, or just wandering around the promenade, Boa is a must.

Sorry for a negative review but......this place socks it to you. Even their house wine is twice the cost of other restaurants. The steak is good but you can get the same meal....quality and flavored....at many other restaurants.

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..
