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.

On this visit the steaks were a little over salted. But still really good. We ate them all.

Service is always fantastic. Folks obviously like working here and it shows. They also love their customers and it shows.

Love this place.

If the not the best, probably one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. And I cannot remember the last best steak! everything was excellent. Wife had the salmon and rated it 8 out of 10. Not for the faint of wallet though, quality like this requires financial fortitude. Very loud too. Had to speak loudly to the others in my party to be heard and I have a booming voice. Not recommended for those that cannot abide by high decibel environments. Next visit we would seek out a less boisterous, quieter time. We were there at 8pm on a Thursday. There was a group of youngish businessmen at the bar who sounded like they’d just scored a major deal... expense accounts probably being exercised quite strenuously. Overall a net positive, must go venue. Not that large and right on the street in Manhattan Beach. Self, street parking.

Love this place but they need to start seating people closer to their reservation time more consistently. I frequently have to wait 30 and sometimes 45 mins to get my table. The staff is nice and apologetic but it’s not cool.

I've been here for multiple birthdays, all of which were great experiences. But this time our table was 35 min late. The service was painfully slow we didn't get our food until hr and half later. The food was not prepared as carefully as prior times. Steak was basically rolled in charcoal and I didn't send it back due to the restaurant basically closing by the time I would get another. Hopefully my next experience won't be as painful

normally love Arthur j but this evening they had a very large party that disrupted reservation times and normally stellar service. While staff tried to accommodate the experience was sub par due to excessive wait for our table, food and service. It makes me question the value of going there after this experience.

Great steaks and sides.
Bone marrow delicious, but skimpy portion for the price.

Need some work on the Wedge. Also, I believe they cut staff, but at the end of the evening we could not find a server for a glass of wine or to pay our bill. Ended up paying, but did not order the additional wine because of the wait.

Fantastic experience especially for New Year’s Eve when good restaurants like Arthur J’s are filled to capacity.
First, Sasha , the reservationist, was amazing in accommodating an addition to our reservation. She was conscientious not to overlook the restaurant but after a few calls she was able to grant our request. Second, restaurants was festively decorated for NYE—-added to the ambience. Third, Marcus, our waiter( we have had the pleasure of having Marcus as our waiter on many past occasions) always takes excellent care of his guests. Fourth, management really excelled in handling a change in our order—-so professional and pro active. Fifth, everyone’s meal was delicious.
We’ll be frequenting Arthur J’s a lot in 2020!

Went here for the first time for my husband’s birthday. It was also the first time we went out just the two of us since we became parents two months ago. The service was excellent! My husband was given a hand written card, signed by all the staff wishing him a happy birthday and thanking him for choosing The Arthur J to celebrate. Michael, our server, took such good care of us and made sure we had a special experience. All of the food was delicious! Definitely will go here again. Would recommend this place to everyone looking for a great dining experience and delicious food.

The ambience is fantastic! Classic steakhouse scene with great staff. The food is to die over, I had the Tomohawk steak- cooked Medium rare plus. It was one of the best steaks I’ve had. I recommend getting multiple different sauces(Green peppercorn, Arthur J sauce, and truffle butter). I would recommend for taking a date or the entire fam!

My Yes recommendation will depend on what kind of dining experience my friend is looking for. If you want excellent quality food and service and are willing to put up with the noisy environment that seems to be the American dining experience, and you are willing to spend a premium to get it, then The Artur J is your place. But if you want a dining experience where you can hear and be heard by a dining companion this is NOT your restaurant. What is it about American restaurants that all of the diners seem to need to shout at each other? Is it just to be heard above the too loud, up beat music? While the style of the restaurant would indicate a sophisticated approach to dining, the lack of a romantic ambience was evident. It was impossible to carry on a conversation with my wife so that we could enjoy each others company to celebrate or anniversary.

It doesn’t get any better than prime beef grilled over oak wood! Simply awesome!!! We all asked for the sauces on the side, which we ended up using on the beef fat fries. Truffle butter, chimichurri, peppercorn and the mustard sauce that came with the fries were delish, but we really enjoyed the flavor of the meat without any sauce!
Our server Brent and all of the staff were the best. Brent actually provided the Parker house rolls that I had forgotten to order, on his own for free. What a mind reader! We will not hesitate returning to our new favorite steak house! They also comped a yummy apple tart birthday dessert too. We loved everything about The ArthurJ!

I have honestly never had a bad meal here. It is by far my favorite restaurant. We got the sampler steak platter and martini with blue cheese olives. We also split a Caesar salad. Delicious!

i was rewarding an ex-secretary a well-deserved dinner and a birthday wish. we had the most incredible dinner and did not stop eating for close to two hours. i would definitely recommend Arthur J to friends and family who have not been here before. steaks, prime rib, and salmon were all delicious.

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. It was a bit noisy for a romantic dinner. However it was quite good. The drinks could have been better made for such a high class restaurant. I’ve had better especially using good booze.

This was me and my fiancé’s third time visiting Arthur Js. As usually the service was great their waiters are always very attentive from making sure our water glasses are filled to making sure we are enjoying our meal.

My fiancé ordered the ribeye steak and I ordered the New York Strip. Very good. The Mac n cheese wasn’t the greatest but it was definitely edible, but I probably won’t order that side again. Everything was great tho. We enjoyed ourselves as usual! So if you are thinking of dining at this establishment, you will not be disappointed! Thankx again for a lovely time Arthur Js!

I loved the service, and the food was incredible. We went there on a special datenight, *specifically* for the dry-aged tomahawk (my boyfriend is a steak enthusiast), and it completely delivered. We also tried two cocktails, their yummy mac & cheese, and their chocolate dessert (I forget the name) which was the perfect ending to a perfect night. Our waiter was friendly and well-informed, and the service well-timed for a tomahawk, they even gave us a complimentary appetizer during our wait. The restaurant was a bit noisy but the food was totally worth it.
