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.

Very good all around, great sevice and food. It was a busy Saturday evening so it took quite some time for our food to come out and unfortunately some of our food was on the cold side, but still very tasty. We had tuna tartare, wedge salads and the tomahawk ribeye which was cooked perfectly medium rare. Very nice experience.

The ambiance is perfect. Love the music and fun vibe. Service was pretty good. Friendly waitress named Ashley. Wedge salad was not good. Lettuce was too wet so it made the dressing watery. My baked potato was not done all the way and hard. They brought a new one but when it came I was done with dinner. Sea bass was under cooked. Steak was amazing. Overall I’d give this restaurant a 2nd chance.

Had our anniversary dinner at Arthur J. Nothing short of amazing on all aspects of our dining experience. We ordered the caviar to celebrate our anniversary and they gave us complimentary Champaign to enjoy it with and wrote us a lovely note. The service was stellar - friendly and warm for an upscale dining restaurant (which you don't often get in SF and NY).

Allow plenty of time to find parking. We were late for our reservations due to MB parking situation. They were very accommodating and the meal was worth it. Best steak dinner and the sides were amazing! Excellent! We will return and bring guests.

When you make a reservation six weeks in advance, you don't expect to be seated next to the restrooms with smells wafting out. You also don't expect the hostess to tell you that there's a two hour limit for your meal as you're being seated (we wound up staying longer, but still...). The server gave a five minute spiel about how great the place was when he first arrived at our table. I felt like I was at a used car lot. Geez, we already decided to eat there, so we didn't need the sales pitch. Although the food was good, there are better experiences.

Great food as always...outdoor dining is fine but you do get street noise. This would have been a 5 except after receiving several texts ask me to confirm the reservation and stressing to be on time ...well, when we arrived, on time, I got the “wait outside and we will get to you” routine from the hostess...after 15 minutes of waiting outside I went back in and got the “what is your name again ?...please wait outside and we will be right with you” routine...obviously they had forgotten us...so more waiting and then on the way to the table she said “please be done in two hours”...so I would say not the greatest way to great your patrons ...make them wait...forget their name, make them wait some more and then them tell them to hurry up and eat !

Having said the above The Arthur J is ALWAYS great...the wait staff is terrific (pleasant.knowledgeable etc) ...the food is off the charts...best restaurant in the South Bay.

The food was great and our server Mike was amazing. The rest was kind of downhill. We asked the Somm to help us decide between 3 wines we were interested in and instead he tried to upsell us on one that was twice the price. If you can’t stand behind all of the wines on your menu, why bother carrying them?

Then, the salad course took so long to arrive that it was comped, not a big deal, but then our steak arrived 2 minutes later and had been cut in the kitchen after our server had suggested the benefits of us slicing it ourselves which we agreed to do. The funny part of this was that the hostess said she would need our table back at a certain time but because of the long wait for the salad we ended up being there much later than that timeline.

I expected much more from this caliber of restaurant. Hopefully this was just a fluke!

My husband and I dined here for his birthday. It was our first time here and we had a great time. I’m so glad I made a reservation early in advance. When we arrived, it was really busy ! That’s how you know this place is good.

On top of the food being extremely delicious, the service and care we received from our waiter, Brent, really tied the entire experience together. He made us feel welcomed and special. Even though we looked at the menu beforehand and knew exactly what we wanted to order, Brent went above and beyond to provide a couple extra goodies for us to try and we were not disappointed.

I definitely recommend dining here !

great steak. great service. a little loud, and everyone wonders why management does not install a few thick velvet border floor to ceiling curtains to "eat noise." but still a nice evening. pricey though. and make sure the bottle of wine they deliver to your table is the same year advertised on the Carte de Vin.

The waiter had no personality. His device sucked never really checked on us not even water..

First they say us outside non of the heaters were working asked to move us inside ..

They did

Then no service again had to ask for water and food took 45min to get to table ...

No apology ..??

Stake was just ok very fatty

This was a over $200 dinner we should have gone to in&out service would been better and more attention to detail

Just a note this is the 1st time I’ve been to ArthurJs were everything sucked

Usually it’s amazing FYI
