Excellent 1st experience...and it most certainly won't be the last time we dine at Rex's. Food, service, environment and vibe checked all the boxes. A true South Bay comp to Arthur J, if not better. Bravo!!

The service was great. I had read reviews that the service was not good, but we felt the hostess, server and manager check-in were great. My problem was with the food. We ordered the most expensive steak on the menu, the 40oz tomahawk. We asked the server for steak recommendations because we wanted it to be marbled and flavorful. What came was a steak that was 50% solid fat (see pics). Half of the steak was inedible, just all fat. It was cooked on a wood fire and I felt it tasted burnt. Some people may like that charred flavor? Extremely disappointing steak for $170 (we added on garlic butter and thought it would be cooked in the butter but it came on the side? Weird imo). The wedge salad was delicious, the Mac and cheese was not great (wouldn't order again), and the baby potatoes were cooked perfectly. Overall I wouldn't eat here again given I don't feel the food quality warrants the price tag.

Seated quickly although asked to be relocated since we were directly in path of all servers snd bus employees. There we sat. They must be understaffed as 7 or 8 minutes our server said she would be with us shortly. 7-8 more minutes she came back. Very nice, but overwhelmed. Ordered drinks and appetizers…appetizers came out before drinks. So we waited. Again. Eventually ordered the steak sampler to share. Potatoes purée and apparently the thickest, tree trunk asparagus they could find.

Steak sampler so disappointing. Precut and our medium rare became medium while it rested in the kitchen. Very small serving so finished in 5 or 6 bites easily. Potatoes were only good item on entree. Asparagus was hilarious

$250 with our own wine and no desert. Went home and had a snack as we were still hungry

We are lucky we have two new steak restaurants in the riviera now, and without a doubt I would recommend pacific prime over Rex.

This was our first visit to Rex and it wasn’t a good experience. To begin with the restaurant was extremely loud. We could barely hear each other at our table. The waiter was not good at all. He could not help with wine selections at all and when we asked him to find someone who could help, he never did. I ordered a medium steak but I believe the waiter put in medium well and it was awful. The manager and chef agreed it was not what I asked for. They did bring another steak after waiting some time,and the few bites I took were good. The sides we had came to our table like warm.

For the money we paid we should have been wowed and our experience was far from it. I would not recommend your restaurant at this point.

Having dietary issues, such as gluten and dairy, is an issue with dining here. No salad or veggie options-broccolini was way undercooked. Love the place-just so difficult to order. The steak, however, was xlnt.

We were excited to take in The Rex Steakhouse and we’re disappointed at the level of service that we experienced. It took 40 minutes to be served a cocktail, the servers attention to detail and speed was not up to a fine dining level. It didn’t appear that they were understaffed rather not focused on providing every table the same level of attention. The food overall was prepared well and had a nice presentation. It seems that they could really use some “front of the house” expertise. We spoke to the Chef and he appreciated the feedback and asked that we reach out to him directly on my our next visit. Sadly there are too many great steakhouses to choose from that I would choose first. The wine selection is very good however only a few under $100.00/bottle. The restaurant decor is very nice and contemporary. It does need some fine dining polish and training for the staff. I understand we are in the midst of Covid, however when you are paying exorbitant pricing for a fine dining experience you should be offered top notch service and attention to detail.

We had 7pm reservations, but didn't get seated until 7:30, but that's okay. We were offered drinks while we waited outside and when we were called the hostess was very apologetic. When we went inside I could see why we had to wait, the place was packed!! It was wonderful to see! Our server was great as were the hostesses at the front. I would say a very well trained staff.
The food was very good and everyone at our table said their steak was cooked to perfection.
I also loved the interior.

Sat in the bar area for our steak dinner, with 6 of us. The service was great, and so was the food. However, I felt like we had to yell to be heard. It was extremely busy, and a very busy area to sit. Just a lot going on. Which took away from the experience of a nice steakhouse. I would definitely go again, but request not to be seated in the bar area.

This visit we tried the tour of Waghu ribeye. So, so delicious. My daughter and I split it and savored every morsel. As always everything we tried was yummy. We had never had their sourdough bread before and it was amazing, not your standard loaf of sourdough. The Admiral cocktail on the Rock is our fav. If you like a Manhattan, you'll enjoy their take on it. The four of us shared the grilled shrimp cocktail and spring onions as an appetizer...just the right amount so it didn't spoil our appetite. Very enjoyable evening!

Its early days for this stake house but i can say the food and service was magnificent, although the wine and drinks list was pricy. The restaurant was busy when we ate (7:30) and the noise level was hard to have a conversation in.

Service is terrible here! We waited at the hostess station ( while the hostess argued with another customer who they couldn't find her reservation) for 10 mins before seating us. Then sat Us finally and no water or drinks for 10 more mins.
Server forgot some things on our order, never checked on us and
never cleared the table... Empty coke bottle and dirty dishes sat on our table until we left...the food was good.

Our overall experience was great, but their system was down when it was time to pay. They took our card info and charged twice. Still waiting on a refund! Which is unacceptable to be waiting 2 weeks.
