Steakhouse
At The Arthur J, beef is our passion.

When you combine our ability to source the best beef in the world, cooking with an incredible natural wood fire grill, and friendly thoughtful service, an incredible quality steak is born.

This is why we offer the best USDA Prime, True Japanese Wagyu, and Black Angus Beef.

Unlike most pedestrian steak houses, Each one of our Steaks is cooked skillfully by our Grill Master over a stoked live fire with smoking white oak embers.
Our steaks are available both wet-and dry-aged and well as Bone-in, grilled to perfection our magnificent J&R Woodfire Grill.

    The food was sublime- best steaks I’ve ever had outside of New York! The sides are varied, seasonal and delicious. The staff accommodated a last minute change in reservation time, as well as a special request for a preferred table. I also had one of the best mixed drinks I’ve ever had at the bar.

    Lots of happy memories at The Arthur J since we normally come for celebrations. Alonzo made us feel especially taken cared of on our anniversary. Our steaks were excellent as usual, and the peach fritter dessert was to die for! Many thanks to the nice ladies at the check-in stand as well.

    The Arthur J never misses! It has been our go-to for our special occasions in the South Bay for years. Last night, it was a family gathering, and three of the five were experiencing The Arthur J for the first time. Most commonly heard phrases throughout the meal: “…best steak I ever had…” “…these sides are all great…” etc. And Alonzo was the latest in a long line of outstanding servers we’ve had there. Props as well to Ethan, who livened up the evening for us as well. Until next time!

    Yet another amazing experience at The Arthur J. The service started immediately when the kind waiter opened the door for my wife. The hostess was very nice and pleasant seating us earlier than our original reservation. We had the privilege of having Mike as our server. He is exceptional, and an amazing asset to the team. He treated us like we were the only table at the restaurant. All and all the entire team was extremely helpful towards each other. It was noticeable. The food was superb as usual. Any steak you have will be prepared to perfection. We’ve been here for many special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. They just never disappoint.

    Excellent food, service, and attention to details. We sat at the bar for an early dinner and the staff also acknowledged our anniversary. One rather loud group was sitting nearby but fortunately didn’t stay too long so noise level was lessened. A great date!

    This turned out to be a fantastic evening. I made a reservation for five people at a pretty popular dinner hour 645 only to have a sixth person show up. We decided to risk it and walk to the restaurant anyway and I explained that we had an additional person and hoped it wouldn't be a problem. The restaurant could not have been more accommodating, manage to fit us all in very comfortably, and served us an absolutely wonderful dinner, accompanied by two bottles off their very nice wine list. Fortunately we were able to sit outside because the music indoors is a little too loud for my taste. One of our party who lives in Malibu says nobody knows how good Arthur J. is he would have no problem driving all the way from Malibu for a filet mignon at Arthur's.

    We had dinner for our anniversary on Saturday nite, we choose the outdoor seating & by far it was the finest dinner we've ever had. The service was prompt, our steaks were done perfectly & the taste was outstanding! Several sauces are offered on the side with the steaks, by and far they are not needed. The side orders were more than enough for 2, overall an outstanding meal. We will be going back again soon.

    Excellent menu and selection. Steaks are the specialty obviously. Fantastic wine selection. Very knowledgable and enthusiastic servers. The only issue to be aware of is that the wine menu is marked up quite a bit - so if you want nice wine along with the meal, it's going to be a costly evening.

    Food was fantastic as always. They were short staffed so service was off. Spoke with the manager and the way he dealt with the situation secured a return customer for life. I’d definitely go back and realize it was just an off night due to staffing shortages.

    I thought I knew about steak, but The Arthur J really delivered on the promise of perfection. Best ribeye I’ve ever had. My wife ordered the sea bass and it was as good as my steak, which was a big surprise. The chef performed magic and the amazing server, Alonzo guided our experience from beginning to end with an expert hand - making recommendations, answering detailed questions, and delivering a surprise not-yet-on-the-menu peach fritter dessert for our wedding anniversary. Words cannot describe how delicious this meal was - plus my old fashioned cocktail from their menu was terrific and the Dau Cabernet by the glass was devine. Thanks again, we’ll be back to see Alonzo and crew next time we’re in town!

    We had the BEST dinner! Zo was our server and was excellent- my mojito and my husbands martini were perfect and refreshing. This was our 2nd time there so we already knew to order the creamed spinach, those homemade rolls, the mushrooms, baked potato and this time we had the meatballs for an appetizer (so good!) and we each chose a different steak to try -hubby got the NY strip & I got the 12 oz filet - absolutely amazing! Our server Alfonzo was very attentive and made sure we were satisfied with everything and yes yes yes we will definitely be back! Absolutely exquisite service, food, atmosphere and we celebrated my birthday with the peach fritter….YUMMM! Wow! That is a very great recipe- I usually always order a chocolate dessert but was so happy to go with Alfonzo’s recommendation. Delish! Thank you to everyone there- so nice and friendly, helpful oh and my husband and I LOVED the music playlist Friday night! It was awesome music that reminded us what we hear when we go to Mastros in Bev Hills 2nd floor - really lovely music and a wonderful ambiance. THANK YOU! This restaurant is exactly what this area needs and we have already been recommending it to many many many friends!
