BOA Steakhouse or Jar???

Between the 2 of these restaurants can anyone tell me, in their opinion which has the best atrnnosphere? Food? Service?

  1. Jar certainly wins on food and service. As to atmosphere, it depends on whether you mean the Santa Monica or West Hollywood locations of Boa--Santa Monica is very cool.

      1. Another vote for Jar here. Terrific, interesting food and excellent service.

        1. Put me squarely in the Jar camp. Much better food, and the service is attentive and warm without being too much. The room is comfortable and beautiful.

            Been to both the Santa Monica location of BOA and Jar - Agreed - Jar has better food and service. It's very chic without the snobbery vibe I got at BOA.
