Solid, consistent dining experience with superb service and delicious steaks. Excellent martinis, too.
As always A is a night out that stands out. The food, service and ambience is what I come back to here. You won’t be disappointed. An institution ...
Always a good time, high energy and festive during the holidays. We're never disappointed.
Hostess was great, Stacey our waitpersonn was awesome. Best Charcuterie ever. Cool vibe at a historic locale. Food was outstanding.
This is an old school steak house with a mostly local crowd. I love the red booths and dark wood with the low ambient lighting. The food is delicious and the service is excellent with lots of attention to detail. The wine selection is great and there is a nice bar in the front of the restaurant. Very nice place.
Everything from the time we walked in the door was wonderful. The restaurant is beautifully decorated for Christmas and was so festive. Service and food were outstanding. Our server Brian was great, as well as Brenda who found us a seat in the bar for a cocktail prior to our departure. We had a fantastic dining experience and plan to return soon.
We had a great time with a fun staff. It was very busy and they were properly staffed and friendly.
Birthday party for my special lady!
Amazing restaurant. Exceeded all expectations. Would definitely go again.
Always a fun time at A Restaurant and good food with an inventive menu.
Everything was perfect. We love the ambiance .. so personable and warm. The food is great! We had halibut and filet mignon. The corn soup was super tasty. Service is unmatched...very attentive; but, non intrusive. Highly recommend this legendary restaurant. So much character and tasty food!
Outstanding steaks, service. Old school, red leather booths - very comfortable and intimate. huge bar scene though dining rooms are quieter
only suggestion - add a burger to the menu. could be high end
This is my favorite restaurant. best new york steak, mac, mash potatoes and brussel sprouts
Halibut and ribeye done too perfection. Old school done right.
We requested, and received, a booth in the bar. The service was wonderful and their blue cheese topped bacon cheeseburger, not on the menu, is the best I have ever had. Forget the fries and have the small side Cesar salad.
Deserts are the bomb!
I hadn't been to A's since the late 60's, when it was known as The Arches. I was probably 19 back then, my mom's gentleman friend taking her and her two daughters out for a special night. Going out to dinner to a nice restaurant was a rarity, so my younger sister & I were impressed.
Well, fast-forward 50 years, and I return, along with my sister-in-law, to try A's after attending a play at So Co Rep. I knew it had been remodeled, and was happy to see the reno stayed true to what I vaguely remembered; dark, comfy, leather booths. It wasn't too crowded at 6:15 pm, but the area close to the bar & tv was busy with many people enjoying the happy hour, the game, and lots of laughs with friends. The party was just getting started.
Our server Jarred was very attentive and was happy to explain questions on the menu. My sister-in-law decided on the chicken and I had their salmon. I scored with the salmon, prepared just the way I love-with seared skin, moist & tender inside. It was delicious, and must say it's probably the second best salmon I've ever had...if you read my reviews, you'll probably find out what was my first choice for "best salmon" . I would be happy to go back and have that again. My dining companion loved her chicken also, and we ended up sharing the warm chocolate cake with a wonderful hazelnut ice cream. Perfect meal...my salmon could not have been better.
A great evening, from start to finish. So happy to return after 50 years, and will not wait another 50 yrs to go again. Maybe a month or two??? I loved it, and I am sure my husband will be also-can't wait to return.
Thank you to the staff...great job in making our dining experience top notch!
Absolutely the best meal & service I’ve had in some time. I highly recommend this restaurant to steak lovers.
The food was excellent. Most of our party had beef of some kind. The side dishes were excellent, particularly the Ceasar Salad, mashed potatoes, and mushrooms.
Our server was friendly and attentive.
The ambiance was a throw back to the very dark restaurants of the 70s, which is why we came here.
I had been a customer at The Arches for decades, but had moved away and had not been to A Restaurant yet. I was pleased to see a very vibrant bar scene and that much of the same look and feel remained the same. As far as the menu was concerned, it was much more updated and all of our selections were excellent. The service was outstanding and they mastered just the right amount of attentiveness. I was pleasantly surprised as I reminisced my way through a wonderful dining experience!
Our server Santiago was amazing! That was my first visit. My husband had been once before and raved about it and since it was his Birthday, I thought I'd take him there... and it did not disappoint!
The food is always delicious here. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because it is uncomfortably loud. It was hard to have a conversation with my friend sitting right next to me, let alone anyone across the table. For that reason alone I might not go back.
Amazing as always! This place is top notch on just about everything. Ambiance can’t be beat!
Always amazing! One of our favorites!
We went to A Restaurant on a Sunday. The lighting was very low. Most customers used the light on our phone to read the menu. It made for a romantic and private atmosphere. I had the Brussel sprout leaves, which was like a warm salad; It was delicious! I also had the filet mignon. My steak was cooked to perfect medium rare, as requested and it melted in my mouth! We had the cinnamon apple cheesecake for dessert and a glass of Sandman 30 year tawny port. It was one of the best date nights we’ve had in a long time!
Service was slow. Over priced. Too loud.
Always a great steak, good cocktails and terrific selection of wines by the glass. The daily specials are special dont miss chicken piccatta or rib night.
The quality & taste of all the food was excellent. The macaroni & cheese was probably the best i’ve ever had. Great ribeye & wagyu. Had the “Palapa” and “A Buck” drinks. Both were great in strength and taste. Our server was extremely politely and helpful with the menu. Would definitely return again.
Service and food was perfect as always!
Food and service were great! Noise level was too loud for reasonable conversation. I don't particularly care for the semi-round booths. Much prefer a regular booth, which they don't have.
Love this place! Gotta love when you go and you realize it's Wine Tuesday and half off all wines! Steaks and sides are all great! Service is wonderful!
Old school club environment - very cozy
The food and drinks were amazing! Favorites of the night were the beet and tomato salad and espresso martini. Our server Brian was fantastic as well. We loved that he saw we were celebrating our anniversary and brought out champagne. Such a sweet touch that we will remember forever.
Thanks for helping us celebrate and making it such a wonderful experience.
Was a perfect evening with friends from out of town! We got the John Wayne table as requested. Our waiter and the staff were very attentive. Food and drinks were on the mark!
Food is excellent, ambiance is cozy and service excellent
Our home away from home. Best people, food, cocktails, atmosphere!
1 rib steak was great other 1 had 3 big hard gristle chunks in it price was high but over all good
Always good consistent food and fantastic service.
