    “S’mores 5.0” is the childhood treat deconstructed and served as a rich flourless chocolate cake with toasted vanilla fluff, milk chocolate ice cream, and gluten-free BOA graham crackers. Read more

    Food blogger Lori or recommends BOA for its “warm bread, great wine, amazing steaks, mac and cheese, candlelit ambience, and the fact that the people who work there are so darn nice.”

    Bustling atmosphere, we enjoyed our dinner, we especially enjoyed sitting between two interesting parties, just over hearing their conversations was enjoyable. Must try the table side caesar salad.

    Food, drinks and service were all excellent. Great location-right across the beach! Definitely order the truffle cheese fries and S'mores. Heavenly!

    Absolutely valid recos below: goat cheese baklava is a must, so are Truffle Cheese Fries. When still hungry, get the Petite fillet mignon - you WILL be in heaven! I was.

    Great location close to Santa Monica peer. If traveling for business solo, go to the bar and order dinner. Dry aged NY strip is great and Andrea is a killer bartender.

    Best steakhouse in town so far. Try baklava b4 meal, it is not like Turkish style, not a sweet though. Mashed patato with garlic sauce, it is a killer !

    Sunday = half-priced bottles of wine. Charlotte behind the bar. We love her! Eat at the bar and order a Kansas City bone-in filet or for a more flavorful cut, get the aged bone-in rib-eye. Read more

    How on earth does a restaurant completely run out of brandy, especially considering that one of their signature cocktails has brandy as its base spirit?

    I can't stop myself from going in to get yet another Seared Hudson Valley Foi Gras, prepared differently every night! Add a Filet Mignon and Mashed Potatoes, and try the Table-Side Prime Steak Tartare Read more

    The goat cheese truffle baklava here is the truthhh. Bone in ribeye is one of the best cuts and extra points for stocking Hendricks gin

    Places outside around sun set are very nice in terms of atmosphere. However, if chosen the wrong place the waiters constantly bump at your chair due to lack of space

    Overpriced but good vibe. If you really want a steak with an ocean view, this place will do the trick. But Mastros in Malibu will be the same price for a better meal.

    Best Steak (bone in Filet) in town. Go on Sunday. It's half-price wine night. Almost any bottle. Sunset location for the scene. Santa Monica for more more mellow family feel.
