BOA? Any recent reviews or experiences?

A friend wants me to go there. Just curious what people think.

    1. i went to the one in SM last year and it was a pure meat market and very boisterous. the food? well, the wedge was decent but i found my bone in ribeye to be lacking. it was fatty and gristley....and yielded perhaps 7 bites of beef. i felt like a surgeon cutting away the gristle and fat.

      overrated for the food but definitely a place to go for drinks and to spit game on the plastics.

      1. I really like the West Hollywood one -- one of my favorite places for a steak. Not a huge fan of the one in Santa Monica. The food, service, and atmosphere don't appeal to me as much.

        1. I went to the one on Sunset for an office holiday party. The steak eaters were a little disappointed, but I had a good braised dish (maybe short ribs) that was yummy. The scene was ridiculous... I definitely saw a girl across the room at a table with Jamie Foxx slowly disrobe over the course of the evening.

          Overall, not bad for a trendy restaurant but definitely not a quality steak on par with Mastro's or anything like that.
