The service is top notch at Boa Steakhouse. Our food came out quickly and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Nothing special about the ahi but the steaks were delicious.

thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

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..
