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.

    Best restaurant I’ve visited in California. Celebrated a birthday there and the staff was tremendous. They even gave us a personalized birthday card with birthday wishes. Michael was our server and he took care of us. His knowledge of the menu and was awesome. He treated us like family and made us feel very comfortable. This place is a 10 out of 10 and I will always recommend and visit. The food hot all senses and. The drinks were spot on. Please let Michael be our server!!

    Took our son for his birthday. Overall the food was very good but just overpriced as are all steakhouses. Drink prices just too expensive. Service was okay. Food came out quickly but our server forgot something we ordered. Something you should try once but probably won’t go back unless for a special occasion. Be prepared to spend a lot.

    Very disappointing all around! We had reservations and had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. The food (steaks and sides) was cold and then we didn’t see our waiter after we finished eating. We came for a birthday and the waiter totally forgot about it. The experience was far from what you except for the price of the meal. We went to Eddie V’s the week before and it was outstanding. We wanted to try The Arthur J but what a disappointment, we won’t go back.

    The vibe at Arthur J is like no other! On a Wednesday night, the place was popping! Mike, our waiter, took amazing care of us and it was a joy to meet the new manager, Aaron. Everyone at Arthur’s J goes out of their way to deliver an exceptional experience. Besides the obviously amazing steak, two other standouts were the tuna tartare and the pork chop. Cheesecake was also sublime. Can’t wait to go back and enjoy another evening of great food and attentive service.

    Food was good but service is quite excellent! Staff is very attentive. We went to celebrate our anniversary and there was a signed card from the staff waiting at our table and we also got complimentary flutes of champagne. Really enjoyed the scallop appetizer and the popovers. Steaks were well-cooked, but could have used a little more seasoning. Had the carrot cake for dessert, which was fantastic!

    Steak was materially undercooked relative to requested temperature. Butterladen mashed potatoes were more butter than potatoes. Vegetables were undercooked. Regular customer so I know what the team can produce…..bad night. Place was packed for two full seatings.

    We so enjoy dining at the The Arthur J. We enjoyed a great meal with superb service from Johnny O. His attention to detail and service was impeccable. He sensed we were not in a hurry and were there to enjoy all phases of our dining experience. I selected a wine that he also recommended. It was the perfect accompaniment to our perfectly cooked rib eye. We highly recommend The Arthur J for a special event or just to dine at the best restaurant in Manhattan Beach.

    It took a while to get seated (despite having a reservation) and a bit longer to be acknowledged. Specifically on a Tuesday night it took 30 minutes from getting there before we had our first sip of water. The rest of the evening was great (good food, good service) but was largely overshadowed by the somewhat rough start. Seemed that maybe they were overbooked or just short staffed?

    We had a wonderful dining experience from start to finish. The shrimp cocktail was chilled cold and had a nice cocktail sauce and avocado wedge. The Parker rolls and popover with strawberry jam was scrumptious!! My wife and sister in law shared a Caesar salad which they enjoyed. For entrees we had petite filets, Ny Strip, and a pork chop. All were broiled to perfection. Our sides we ordered were Beef fat fries, loaded baked potatoe and cream spinach, enough to share. We finished off the dinner with strawberry ice cream, Meyers lemon cheesecake, and a banana split. Absolutely delicious!! Our server Kayla was personable, professional, affable and outstanding. A memorable evening and so glad that we made reservations on Open Table ahead of time because it was busy when we left. We were celebrating a birthday and the personal touch of a signed birthday card from employees was above and beyond what we expected. The Meyers lemon cheesecake was comped and the $35 corkage was acceptable. We’ll be back for sure!! Thanks again!!

    To be honest, our food was kind of a let-down. The cocktails started out great, but the food was just average. Minimal seasoning on the steak and unfortunately our highlight of the night were the onion rings.

    Excellent meal. My ribeye was prepared perfectly black and blue, as I ordered it. Many steakhouses have a problem getting this right. The wild mushrooms are fantastic, as was the tuna tartar. Service was excellent, with servers there when we needed them.

    Food was on point. Service on the other hand was lacking on the points of service: - Wine glass was not polished. - Table was set and cleared at the same time. - Dessert menu was delivered with the server wearing the gloves they were cleaning with. Being in the industry, we also like to just watch the room. A few major points of service issues elsewhere... Cutlery was being set with the utensil ends, not handles. Staff were leaning near the front, polishing. An interesting issue also came up, the bill. The app to pay is not available for Canadian residents, so we had to flag down the server to have them print a normal bill. This is not a good guest experience and an alternative should be put in. I understand most customers are American, but when we had 0 issues anywhere else we visited, the system is broken. Small details, there were a lot that were missed.

    I knew it was going to be expensive, crowded, and wait would be long. That didn't deter me, I wanted to try the food. Unfortunately, the food was also a let down. Overall it didn't have enough flavor or seasoning. --The spinach was mostly butter --The macaroni cheese was ironically the "healthiest" we were served. It tasted like a non-gluten frozen food item you'd buy at trader joes. I would have much preferred the a food style macaroni cheese you'd get at a place like KFC. --The mash potatoes had no gravy. --The 178 dollar Tomahawk steak was cooked alright, but not seasoned enough. The truffle butter we got with it had zero flavor. Finally at the end of the meal, we asked for a take home box and they THREW OUT MOST OF THE STEAK! I would estimate we had 15 oz of steak left (attached to the bone) and they threw it out, and left us with a measly 3 oz strip. I was so upset by this which is why I'm leaving this review

    Start to finish a mediocre experience. It was my 40th birthday and wanted to celebrate with steak. We ordered plenty of food however our waitress ignored us most of the night. When I said I didn’t know what I wanted from the menu she said “ok I’ll come back”. No suggestions were made from the menu and the daily special wasn’t even told to me (over heard another guest at a different table mention it). After we got our food she came by once to check on us. I Likely won’t be coming back despite living only 15 mins away.

    Service was good. We celebrated an anniversary and were given champagne to toast. Complimentary shrimp appetizer which was very nice. My filet however was very fatty and didn’t taste as great as the first time we went so i was a little disappointed. Baked potato and asparagus were tasty and my husband was happy with his steak. Would go again.

    We have dined here two times over the last 3 years and had great experiences. This time they were out of quite a few popular items. We ordered the tuna tartare, caesar salad and the filet mignon. There was very little tuna in the tartare and it was bland, the salad was tasteless and watery and the vegetables that came with the filet were cold and tasteless also. Our server offered to redo the salad and they didn't charge us for it but i had lost confidence at that point. I'm not sure that I'll be back.
