Everything was fabulous. Our waitress Maureen 'Mo' created the best service we have had in a long time. The fillet mignon was perfect and the black cod perpared perfect. The entire experience was wonderful. PS. be certain to order the stuffed hash browns

I made the mistake of ordering Lobster. I assumed that the top-rated restaurant in Ft Lauderdale would have a great chef able to do more than steak. My boyfriend's steak was good. The lobster was good the first few bites in, but then it got really tough. It was overcooked. The risotto it was plated on was very salty. The staff was excellent, and the manager took care of it. Still, I expected more for the price. The view and the location were excellent.\n\nOn another day, we had brunch. We both had the 'Benedicts' and they were fabulous!

I have eaten at many of Stephen Starrs restaurants in Philadelphia. Among his steakhouses Butcher & Singer tops the list with Barclays Prime a bit behind. I rate B&S ahead of all the Philly steakhouises. Steak954 was not in its class.

After a couple years of not having eaten at Steak 954, we were looking forward to a nice evening and a good meal. We had reservations and arrived on time to 2 hostesses who could've cared less that we were standing in front of them as they finish their seemingly idle chatter.. After being asked for our name in a rather run friendly way, as they finish their seemingly idle chatter we were escorted about 10 steps to a small round table set up nearly at the entrance of the restaurant. About a third of the tables were empty and we asked the hostess if we could sit at a different table. She said she would have to check with the front desk, which is understandable but after waiting standing in the restaurant for about a minute and a half we finally walked out. She never returned. We finally went to the bar where we were greeted by a very engaging bartender and proceeded to have a nice dinner at the bar. Well not what we had planned for, we had a great evening nonetheless. That said it'll be a long time before I eat at Steak 954. Somebody over there needs to get their head out of their ...

Since we planned to stay at the W for my big 50th birthday weekend we decided to hold a big dinner for friends and family.\nMy wife contacted Joel who arranges the larger size events and we met with him and he customized a fantastic menu for our guests and since we are wine snobs we were able to set this up with wines from our collection.\nKevin our server handled the whole party not an easy task and the wine was set up and poured with precision all along Joel was there checking on every element of our night it was magical. Food was perfectly cooked with precision and surprisingly for a big party everything was 100% right.\nWe were so thrilled we had breakfast there in Kevin's section the next morning. In this day and age of dissapointments this establishment exceeds all expectations.\nThank you so much for the best birthday ever!\n\nhttps://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g34227-d1438206-r461300623-Steak_954-Fort_Lauderdale_Broward_County_Florida.html#

We were seated outside when we requested inside (she asked us at the desk). I asked a hostess for a box after we had paid. She said she would get our waiter.

It was my 29th anniversary I asked for a nice view outside for my wife. I arrived and your guy at front desk told me I could get a outside seat. When a lady came over to take us to our table it was inside. I asked her why she said she was never told it had to be outside. She went back and the guy did not have to stones to come talk to me himself. He said a the nasty lady back over and said we have nothing outside. We sit inside and my wife\nAnd I are there for 1 1/2 hours and stair outside at 2 table that were open the entire time we ate. So\nI figures out that the guy wanted hi palm grease with a $20 or $50 bill and then I would have gotten a table. I will never go back and I will make it my job to post this on all my social media outlets. Maureen(Mo) the waitress was fantastic!!!

We dined for an early Valentine's Day dinner. We usually make a reservation for around 7/7:30pm but this time we booked for 8:30pm on a Friday. Dining at 7/7:30pm is a pleasure. They are attentive and the food is great. However, I don't recommend dining later than that. It was a totally different experience dining at 8:30pm. Our server was nice, but he probably had too many tables to cover since he was not very attentive and it took 45 minutes to get our steaks, and we ordered them medium rare. When they finally served them, we could tell that they had been sitting out for a while. No apology by waiter and a manager never came by to check in. In addition, one of the steaks was significantly more rare than medium rare. It was a bit of a disappointing experience considering how much money you spend. But we just learned that if we do eat there in the future, we will eat earlier!

We have several Stephen Starr restaurants in Philadelphia and we figured we would visit this one in Fort Lauderdale. The waitress was very friendly, but committed a tacky error by recommending the most expensive wine by the glass for my wife, who is a wine drinker and was just interested in our server's recommendation. The chopped salad and tomato and mozzarella apps were fine. Then the problems started. We order two filets both of which were undercooked. Both sides were brought to us cold. The manager arranged for a new filet for me which also arrived two temperatures undercooked - seriously - again. I asked for the check and the main plates and sides were comped, appropriately. I went back to the Ritz and had a fabulous burger. Big disappointment, especially because we dined very early, at 6 PM on a Thursday. The restaurant was empty.

It was December 25th...It's so unfortunate that we chose a steak. We ordered a bone-n-ribeye $57. What we received was a plate of meat that was half done (too pink) and it was sliced up to appear like a ribeye with a short rib of beef on the side instead of still being part of the steak. The manager didn't charge us and we left very hungry. After waiting for months to dine at Steak 954 the servicd was horrible and the meat was from game animal like an Elk or Boar; it was not from a cow. The meat had a strong game taste. Bone in Rib Eye are our favorite steak; and we have eaten at some of the best steak houses; Flemings, Capital Grille, Morton's, Ruth Chris, etc., etc.

It 's really hard to pick a winner among the half dozen or so top steak houses (the others are all chains) but this one is certainly in there with the best of them. The very nice room, with some tables and outside dining overlooking the ocean, make it clear you are in a very upscale place. Our server, Robert, was something else altogether. Hardly a kid, he had what for me was an excellent combination of extensive menu knowledge (made the best suggestions) as well as a more than friendly personality. I took his advice and proceeded to enjoy a fabulious steak as well as a great appetizer and sides. The dessert was also top notch. The only misstep that I would not expect from this level of restaurant is that the food was brought out by other staff (not Robert) and they were unclear as to who got what. Minor detail, but I thought that should not have happened. Also, I very much miss lyonnaise potatoes from the potato side dishes choices at a steak house. They can keep the potato fritters for the kids.\n\nI understand that the man behind this place is a restaurateur from Philly - I once ate at his Asian place in Philly, Buddakan, and I still remember how good that was. I don't know if he has any other steak places, but he sure has the talent and skill as this is about as good as it gets.

Underwhelmed by the dining experience. I made my reservation weeks in advance but upon arrival I learned that our reservation party was split into two tables - which makes no sense at all. We were seated late as a result of the table problem. The food was mediocre, nothing to go out of my way for again. We were there on NYE and while the staff handed our hats and noisemakers, which was nice, there was no actual countdown to bring in the new year so there really was no point to the hats and such. Very disappointing experience. Our servers, however, were very pleasant and attentive.

Even though it was a busy NYE, we did not feel rushed or pressured to turn over the table. The steak was some of the best I've ever enjoyed. The lobster and crab ceviche was memorable. Can't wait to dine here again at the next opportunity,

The punch line is, the place has a nice ambiance and they cook a good steak but thats about it. Service is bad, very bad. Nice people just completely misplaced in a high end restaurant. The apps are ok, the sides are blah, the drinks are pretty good, the bread seems like grocery store take home and bake (in my opinion a good steak house has a signature or at least good bread experience), the menu has no options for steak toppers (but again the steak itself was yummy) and apparently one glass of water per customer. I would only recommend this place for people who have a large eating out budget, are looking for convenience since its at the hotel, and can overlook missing elements of a high end/cost experience.

it took 15 minutes for a server to take greet us and take our order, and we had to go look for one. We finally got water, and after waiting for a total of 50 minutes, we had to look for a manager because our order never arrived. The manager Apologized, but at that point it was too late and we had to leave. Horrible experience.

Food was very late to arrive. Two of four orders were wrong. The salmon was served raw and one steak was seriously overlooked.

Our first time at this restaurant. The food was great! I had the crab Benedict and my husband had a steak. We started with the seafood platter, which was very good, a bit high priced for what you get though. I've been to other high end restaurants that have something similar on the menus and they give you more seafood for the price, but it was very good and I'd order it again. \nGreat atmosphere. Service was good, the server was very pleasant and helpful, but they forgot to bring some things out and we had to ask, and they didn't fill our water glasses, we had to ask for that too. It was not busy in the restaurant, which is why I give it a 4 star for service. Overall the experience was great and we will be back.

Very disappointing experience- arrived on time at 7:30 before the rush but still waited over an hour for the main course ('free dessert' not much to make up since IR was another half hour to get the bill!\nWorse (even dangerous), the chopped salad had avocado despite telling the server that my wife was allergic to it and her assurances that there was none...my wife noticed some small pieces and stopped eating but was up all night after symptoms set it 2 hours later. Next day we called to speak to a manager - twice - no call back....never going back!

After eating at Steak 954 for breakfast and experiencing one of the worst dining experiences to date (party of 10 including 2 children), we were invited back gratis with only 4 guests remaining in our party (w 1 baby) and we experienced service and food quality we should have had two days prior. Our waitress the first morning was simply incapable of serving a meal. As was the chef in preparing the food (uncooked omelettes, wet pancakes). \nWe have had dinner here a year ago and had a wonderful experience. Not this year, after experiencing what we did. We ate out of the hotel every night for dinner.

We decided to splurge and try Steak 954 for our 3 year anniversary dinner. We requested (were not guaranteed) outside seating for 630pm while there was plenty of daylight left to enjoy the view of the beach. We ended up getting outside seating when we arrived for our reservation. Awesome view. The server was one of the best servers we've ever had at any restaurant. He was very aware of our anniversary, had 2 complimentary glasses of champagne brought to us, and made sure we were very taken care of all night. We both had the filets which were just as good, if not better, than Ruth Chris, Morton’s, and Capitol Grille. We had the truffle potato gratin side which was equally amazing. The Brussel sprouts were just okay. The have a wide selection of specialty cocktails. I went with the margarita. Note that Valet is $5 if you pay with your bill at the restaurant. $15 otherwise.

Menu and food isn't as good as its sister restaurant Barclay Prime in Philly or many of the other Stephen Starr restaurants (granted BP is a fantastic restaurant). Overall it was good but there wasn't anything special about it...just another steakhouse. Barclay separates itself with a great staff, unique offerings (popovers, better deserts) and ties in little gimmicks like selecting your own knife to create a sense of involvement with the experience. 954 is good, steaks were above average but aside from that its just another expensive steakhouse like a Shula's, Morton's or Ruth's Chris- you'd be better off in South Beach at somewhere like Red (more expensive and slightly better but not much) where there is at least something to do afterward.

There are so many good things to say. My boyfriend and I came from out of town for a few days. And our high expectations were met and then pushed beyond. \n\nService: Our server, Javier, was a pleasure from the start. He gave us plenty of time with the menus, offering plenty of suggestions on the menu. He was well versed in the wine list, helping us settle on a fantastic bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape, suggesting we let it decant for awhile to really get the full flavors. Everything was well paced for our dining experience, and Javier was the reason why everything went so smoothly.\n\nFood:The food was tasty and cooked perfectly. We asked for an off-menu appetizer of foie gras, which the chef prepared a hefty portion that tasted delightful. Then, moved onto the shared seafood plate with oysters, crab, shrimp and lobster. All seafood was fresh and served on a sheet of ice. We finished the meal with a well prepared steak. I can't speak anymore highly of the food and the chef.\n\nExperience: If you can't tell already, we had a fantastic time. Dining experiences start from the service, which was top-notch. Then the food was A+. And the atmosphere itself was intimate and enchanting. Softly lit, outdoor patio seating with the ocean breeze. Fantastic!

Overall, this was a fantastic meal. The wine, steak, and desserts were all top notch! On vacation from the hustle and bustle of NYC - I was pleased to find a restaurant which demonstrated New York quality in what they served and how it was presented. However, there were two issues with the overall service that just made me question how the restaurant was run:\n\n1) When arriving at 7pm, we asked for an 8 o'clock reservation. We were told they only had 9:15 available. Yet a quick look on Opentable throughout the night showed availability at 8:00, 8:15, 8:30, and 8:45! I booked an earlier reservation on the app and when I showed back up, the reservation was honored. So why not seat us when we originally wanted??\n\n2) This was the weirdest one yet.....there was a special 'Dine Out Fort Lauderdale' menu, similar to that of 'restaurant week.' I saw a great soup on that menu which wasn't on the regular one. I asked the waiter to please bring me the soup as my appetizer and charge me whatever was fair for it. After bringing my order to the back, he came back to tell me that was not possible --- the soup was ONLY for the special menu. This baffled me --- I again told him I was happy to pay for it, but was unfortunately denied. I've never heard of a restaurant not being flexible....and certainly not one to turn down an order! Instead, I got no appetizer, but a great story of the real life Soup Nazi restaurant --- NO SOUP FOR YOU!

Food - Excellent; Service - Exceptional; Ambiance - Horrendous. I've been in redneck bars that were quieter, safer and less frightening. When you dine at a restaurant that has great food at equivicantly great prices, you should not expect to be worried whether there's going to be a brawl at one of the tables. When you are concerned about your spouse going to the restroom less one of the loudmouth rednecks follow and start a brawl, that's a bar - not a high end restaurant. \n\nAfter. An hour and a half, management finally asked them to leave (we think - not sure - because one of them looked liked he was going to punch out the manager); but, then we had the joy of a 12 top table that was just as loud, just not as violent; but, we left before they had been there for a few hours, so we don't know how that one ended up. \n\nEnd opinion - great food, fairly good service, horrible ambiance, especially for a place serving food at this level. They should just become a redneck titty bar serving loudmouth rednecks, then we would not be disappointed with their venue.

First time in ft Lauderdale so we wanted to find a romantic anniversary dinner. We asked and received an outside table located closest to the street. It was quiet so we could hear only us talk. The food was excellent and great service. However. When you go inside where the other tables are located the quiet romantic theme is washed away by hearing everyone talking at once. Way too loud for us and you if you wanted a quiet romantic dinner. So make sure you get an outside table if you want a perfect romantic time to spend with your spouse. \nGreg from PA

When it comes to conveying an image of modern opulence, Steak 954 did not miss a beat --- from the massive phosphorescent wall of jellyfish that greets you as you head towards the hostess counter, the grand hall of luxuriously-appointed tables to the Atlantic Ocean backdrop outside its glass walls --- the place exudes that 'I'm here to be seen and be seen and yes I can afford this' vibe. While all this trendiness is not my cup of tea, the place nevertheless impressed me by the meticulousness with which it carried out this effort. Nevertheless, I was here for the food --- I had heard so much about it and I was eager to dive into the menu. I had the lobster, my friends both had steaks...and yes, they were all very good! Cooked right, richly portioned and served attentively. Hats off to the wait staff and kudos to DJ who did not disappoint with his impeccable service! I was a little disappointed with the host that led us to our table though --- this young man was an unfriendly snob. Just so y'all know, the place is pricey even by Fort Lauderdale standards, but if you're a San Franciscan like I am, that same spread would have still cost us more (sigh).

Yes, the steaks are great, but I'm still thinking about the miso black cod and the chocolate soufflé. The only reason we left a few bites of food on our plates was because they had one of our favorite, and hard-to-find, cabernets on the wine list. Since we were celebrating our anniversary, we splurged, took our time, and enjoyed every single drop. The only detraction is the restaurant is very loud and could benefit from an upgrade to table linens at night - it felt too much like a beach restaurant and not enough like a fine dining restaurant. We'd checked it out earlier in the day since we were staying at the W and requested a table in the semi-private room in the back and that helped - but still...

For dry aged steaks they were lackluster and fatty. Service was poor. Waiter was disinterested. Once food came he disappeared. One steak was over cooked. Towards end of the meal a manager asked how everything was and we told him about the overlooked steak and he acknowledge our Complaint and left!They allow smoking outside which they told no one. Tables had to move to get away from the smoke Would not go back. Have to be better steak places in Ft Lauderdale

Celebrated my wife's 59th birthday at 954. Our server Robert provided excellent guidance regarding the wine list and menu. Perfect balance of time between courses. Our appetizers were superb -- my French onion soup had just the right blend of sweetness and saltiness. My wife's crab cake was flavorful and fresh. For the main course we had the 32 oz porterhouse. We both like our steak more toward the 'medium well' side -- Robert did an excellent job explaining the various grades of meat temperature. Our steak came out perfectly charred on the outside, and pink on the inside -- absolutely delicious. And they carve the steak in the kitchen for ease of sharing. For dessert we shared the frozen peanut butter/chocolate cake -- again, delicious. To top it off, Robert brought a house-baked cupcake with a candle for my wife's birthday.\n\nThe only downside is that I had ordered flowers through Open Table to be on the table when we arrived. They were not there. I called the restaurant manager the next day who told me they had received the bouquet but that no name was included as to who it should be delivered to. I called the flower vendor who immediately provided a refund for the missing flowers. \n\nOverall --I strongly recommend 954 -- the service and food are excellent.

I made our reservation about a week and a half beforehand, added a comment requesting a table with a view. When they called to confirm my reservation, I emphasized it was a special occasion and again requested a quiet table with a view and was told emphatically that we'd get that. \n\nWhen we arrived for our 8PM reservation at 7:50, we waited...and waited. I had to ask 2 different host(esses) how much longer it would be until we were seated. Two parties who came in after us were seated before us, seemingly because they were friendly with a manager. We weren't seated until 8:25, and they tried seating us on the far interior of the restaurant with no view whatsoever and sandwiched between an elbow's distance of 2 other tables. I was justifiably unhappy and requested another table, we were moved, and got another table that still had no view but whatever, we were fed up. It was 8:36 by the time we were seated finally and no manager even came over to apologize to us. \n\nThe food was great, but this kind of service is unacceptable in my opinion. I think next time we'll end up going elsewhere for a steak.

Outstanding value, food was very well prepared. Our only issue with the restaurant was they seemed a bit unorganized at the front of the house. It was chaotic at the hostess stand and we waited for our table over 30 minutes even though we had a reservation. Then when we were seated by the hostess, one of the managers came over to apologize and ask us to move to a different table because they had seated us in the wrong place. It was all very confusing. In spite of all of this, the staff was very attentive, friendly and apologetic. In fact, even though we didn't complain or make a big deal about it, the manager comped our party with desserts. It was a nice gesture and we appreciated it. I would highly recommend 954. Thank you especially to our waiter, Edgardo, he was phenomenal !

We came to Steak 954 for breakfast before going to a Miami Dolphins game on Sunday. We are from out of town and were in Fort Lauderdale for our honeymoon. Since we were staying right next door at another hotel, we figured we would try something different for breakfast. Steak 954 was amazing! I had the crab and avocado benedict and my husband had the cuban style egg sandwich. Our waiter also suggested we start with a half order of the vanilla french toast so we gave it a try. My husband does not normally like french toast but he loved it (and so did I!). It was all delicious. If you are willing to spend a little extra on breakfast, Steak 954 was well worth it!

I've been to Steak 954 many times and it's always been excellent. This time however, was disappointing from the start. Got to the hostess and was asked if I wanted to sit inside or outside. Since it was a beautiful night we chose outside, but no one told me that we would have to wait to sit out. I wasn't too thrilled after seeing many couples that came after us sit before us. I would think that as a courtesy, I should have been told I would have to wait. That's no biggie, but our steaks were way overcooked which is a problem anywhere but especially in a steakhouse, on top of that, a roach came to visit us in the middle of our meal. Sure we were outside, but I don't really expect this to happen in a place like Steak 954. Maybe it's because of the hotel renovations but if that's the case then don't sit people outside. My wife is terrified by roaches, so there went our night. Service was good though.

This was our second year of dining here, and we had forgotten about the overly salty food! Our waiter, Robert, was the best ever-- witty, energetic, and extremely knowledgeable. I wish I could have recorded the conversation as he meticulously walked us through how we wanted our bone-in rib eye prepared, since we were splitting it and could have it prepared at 2 different temperatures. He went into elaborate detail to be sure we would be happy with the perfect temperature/color of the meat. He warned us that the preparation uses a special kosher salt crust, but since we cook with a heavy hand of salt, we were not concerned. \n\nI chose my half to have the 'Oscar garnish' which was excellent-- a generous portion of crab and asparagus with hollandaise on the side. Both halves of the steak were cooked to perfection, but the steak overall was extremely salty and the Brussels sprouts were so disappointing-- as if they had been marinated in soy and then heavily covered in more salt. The bread was excellent. We ended up packing up half of our meal to go, in hopes that we could handle the rest of this salty stuff on another day. Turned out not to be the case. So this was a very expensive meal that was a huge waste of money.\n\nBecause he had warned us of the salt preparation, there was no offer to have it redone, so we left quite disappointed and do not plan to return, even though we stay in this area every year.

Visited here with good friends during a business trip to Ft. Lauderdale, based on their recommendation (they had lunch there the day before). We had high expectations based on that recommendation... and then even higher on reviewing the prices (and we frequent such establishments regularly). \n\nPros:\n- Good service, albeit the kitchen was very slow (see cons below)\n- Excellent and perfectly cooked steak (a think filet, seared, 'Pittsburg style', but medium rare and with a very warm, but not bloody center). I find this level of steak expertise to be 'rare' (no pun intended), and this is especially hard with a very think cut). We ordered with sautéed foie gras... WONDERFUL. \n- Great Appetizers - Tuna Tacos with Fois Gras, Salads, and Fantastic, and traditional cream based lobster bisque. \n\nCons:\n- Slow kitchen... significant wait between completion of appetizers and entre service. Even with good conversation, we were about to ask what was the delay.\n- Expensive, a bit too expensive... perhaps only appropriate for a very special occasion for mot.\n- As I am on crutches, I was surprised to not find an obvious handicapped entrance from the street I was forced to go up at least 15 steps to the entrance (we walked over from the Westin next door). I was hoping to be directed to another exit, but despite my obvious problem, NO ONE offered or indicated another exit to the street. (I assume there was one somewhere).

We are regular diners at Steak 954. Unfortunate, this visit was disappointing. Upon delivering two orders of the NY strip to our table, there was a severe mix-up by the servers/runners over which steak was 'medium' and 'medium well,' as ordered. It's no joke that plates were moved between my friend and I three times before confusion was sorted. Unfortunately, my steak was overdone and the peppercorn presence of the steak too heavy. Note: my request for a steak with no peppercorn could not be honored, as I was told plain could only be ordered in the larger menu option of 14 ounces. Consistency at this restaurant is sorely missing, especially at this high price point.

We were in Ft. Lauderdale for the boat show and decided to come here after seeing the many great reviews that this restaurant received & they were spot on. The big eye tuna & fois gras tacos were very tasty, & the king crab legs were well presented and nicely sweet. For the main event, the aged rib eye was cooked perfectly and was hands down the best steak I have ever eaten at a restaurant. The place was pretty busy as it was the first day of the boat show, so while the noise level was lively, it was not uncomfortably loud. My only criticism is that the restaurant lighting was a bit too dark for our tastes. It's located in the W Hotel, which tends to be a bit 'trendy', so that was probably why. If we ever return to Ft.

Due to the construction, the valets had no clue how we could egress our vehicle with a person in a wheelchair. \nHopefully they have rectified this protocol for others. \n\nFood was impeccable as was the service!\n\nAmbiance/noise level was not so great and the bench seating was amazingly uncomfortable. \n\nPerhaps this will be a part of the renovation they are currently embarked on. \n\nWill definitely return...after the construction is over! ;)

This was our second visit to Steak 954 and it will not be the last! Drinks were phenomenal; food was out of this world. As weird as it may sound, you have got to try the cheese-steak; simply decadent and out of this world. We also had the swordfish which was great, but the cheese-steak was great. Side dishes, while a la carte, are well worth a go, especially the potatoes au gratin. A MUST try was the trio of ice cream sandwiches for dessert. They were like nothing I've ever tasted.

Having had Brunch here multiple times for celebrations, I convinced a group of us vacationing teachers to do the same for a birthday. Other visits were great but this time was disappointing, frustrating and embarrassing. I made the reservation for a VERY specific table, which upon arrival, seemed to have been honored. While the hostess gathered menus, she was told by another hostess that there was a mix up and our table was just given to another group! Our hostess informed me, apologized, said they 'would make it up to us', then took us to our table. Instead of the view of the beach, we were seated at a table with a view of a stack of patio cushions outside the window! I could not stop apologizing to my guests. Meanwhile, nothing was ever mentioned to me about 'making it up to us'. Server, Aleshia, was not attentive, made mistakes, was not visible once for 20 minutes and seemed flustered. I promised my guests a beautiful time instead left feeling horrible. Will not allow this to happen again. Need to insist on what is right.

I had heard lots of positive comments about Steak 954, but hadnt ever 'pushed the button' on it, as I always deferred to traditional steak places like Capital Grille. I finally had the chance to go at the invitation of an out of town friend who was visiting. \n\nThe atmosphere is not traditional steak house, it's cool/modern but still warm. Being ocean front it offers great views out to sea. The two person tables have a great seating arrangement so that you can converse and look at each other, but still face slightly out to enjoy the view. Still havent figured out what the stool is for.... we ate at the early end of the main dining crowd, and when we arrived, it was quiet, but by the end of dinner my buddy and I were really having to talk quite loudly to carry on the conversation. That would be my only knock on the whole experience. \n\nServing staff was warm, and just the right amount of attentive, not to 'hovery' but never left us trying to find them. Dinner was excellent - every bit as good as the other main stream steak houses ive tried down here. I REALLY enjoyed the dry aged new york strip. It was perfectly cooked - and the flavour, my god the flavour! We tried the hash brown side, it was unique and excellent. My girlfirend was upset when she found out that i went there without her, as she's been wanting to try it for a while. I downplayed it, as i didnt want to make it worse on myself, but i definitely owe her dinner there in the near future.

The restaurant is inside of a W hotel, which is quite nice. However, the food was good but tremendously overpriced. Nothing comes with your entree. A 8 oz filet was $65.00 and ordered some asparagus to have something with my steak, which costs $11.00 They advertise the steak as the best there is being Wagyu and dry aged but not much different from most other steak houses.

The Dry Aged Beef is too dry and lacks the tenderness and juicy flavor that a top quality steak should have. Also, the thickness of the cut is far less than other top quality steak houses offer. I ordered the Bone in Rib Eye and had it cooked medium rare. The steak was at most 1 inch thick and was very dry, even cooked medium rare. The meat was far less tender than other steaks that were not dry aged. Overall, a big disappointment as far as the steak in concerned. There are several other Steak Houses in the area that have far better beef. Overall, the service and Ambience are equal to other high end restaurants and the outdoor dining offers a view of the beach and the ocean. The bar is very small and crowded and is difficult to get a drink.

Came with some friends that had been before and raved about everything. Sorry to say, I was not as impressed as I thought. Parking is tough, even with the valet. The place for the valet seemed more like an alley, which is odd as it is for the W hotel also. Long entrance, very nice. Started off with some very nice big eye tuna and foie gras tacos. Drinks were good and a nice wine list by the glass. They promote a few dry aged steaks from Gachot & Gachot from New York that I felt were over rated. I had a rib eye ordered rare that was overdone to almost med. rare. Not enough to send back but… not what I wanted. My wife ordered the same and was perfect although both had a lot more grizzle than I would expect for that price. For sides we had the tator tots and some mushrooms that were great. We also had the brussels sprouts and the smoked cauliflower and Kale that did not have much to them flavor wise. We did have some desserts that also stood out.

The food and view along with the service and wine list are superb. The issue is the noise level. It's rare to have a hard time hearing the hostess, but we did. We were seated at a table and realized we couldn't even hear the waiter describing the specials. For me this type of thing is so unnecessary because with the additions of noise baffles it can be greatly reduced. After a few minutes of frustration, we moved outside. Not a bad idea but certainly nothing one would like to do on a 90 degree humid day. But, it was that loud inside we had no choice.\n\nWe loved the view and the food was excellent. Go there on a cooler day so sitting outside won't be an issue. Or, go there with someone you not interested in having a conversation with.

At the start let me say that our server was very knowledgeable and very attentive. Our meal was excellent. The only detractor seemed that it tries a bit too hard to be hip and maybe that explains our introduction to the restaurant. \n\nOur reservation was early, the restaurant was nearly empty and so we could have had a pick of tables. Instead we were directed to a dark corner at the very back of the restaurant, next to the servers station with a blocked view of the ocean (it was still light out). When I said I didn't want the table, the maitre'd looked displeased, said he'd check to see if we could have another and then came back to offer a table rat the entrance and though better, we took it though it wasn't ideal.\n\nThe meal and server were great and we noticed, as the evening progressed that the restaurant never filled up, better tables remained empty and we were left with the impression that we either weren't chic enough or 'straight' enough to get a good table.\n\nAdvise, give customers what they want without hesitation and don't give them a problem if they don't want what you want to give them.\n\n cha though n

Vacationing in Ft Lauderdale for the week - was told by a number of locals that this restaurant is a 'must try'. Imagine our surprise when we realized it was a Starr restaurant - as we are from Phila/NJ area! Delicious. Everything - from Greeting Desk to Service to Food - was top notch. Manager Burak Isman is attentive to guests and receptive to feedback. We liked it so much we went back for an encore meal the next night - and we were not disappointed. Scallop appetizer is delicious - comes on top of some kind of bacon crusted sauce. Share the famous cheesesteak - definitely worth a taste - but would probably be too rich to each by yourself. Our family of 4 shared 1 the first night; and then split 2 of them as our main meal the next night. The split of champagne that accompanies the cheesesteak if a nice touch. We had to decline dessert - as we were so full - but I am sure the dessert would have been great too! \nDefinitely recommend. Make sure to call for reservations - it gets busy - and see if you can get a seat near the jellyfish tank.

Chilled oysters, briny and flavorful...excellent. The crab cake appetizer was full of lump crab meat, vibrant flavor and little filler. The seasonal style bronzino served with cracked green olives and marcona almonds was a winner. Cooked to perfection, moist and tender, this option was my favorite. We also had the Wagyu bone in 16 ounce filet mignon. The meat was marbled nicely without being overly rich. The flavor was so different than any other high end beef we have ever tried. The sides of asparagus and their signature hash brown potatoes were prepared nicely. One chocolate souffle with caramel gelato and fudge sauce and 2 cups of the house blend coffee and we were in heaven. This special blend coffee, roasted in Washington state has to be the best cup of coffee anywhere. While deep and rich, it was never bitter, just smooth and nutty.

I keep on coming back to 954 hoping things get better because the ambiance is so nice, and the service is good. However, the food remains mediocre. All of the steaks were over cooked. The server said that was a part of the aging process that makes them look brown. Okay... Everything else was serviceable, but underwhelming. I really hope they get this worked out, as the venue is beautiful.

Sadly, I've had much better meals at more average places. I ordered the $60 bone in ribeye and he asked the temp, told him medium and he told me that's red in the center throughout, of course. But it was gray when I first cut in, and continued to be gray as I cut through to see if that was just the edge. I hate to complain but at $60 I wanted it right. The server brought a flashlight and asked that I cut it in half to make sure, it was still gray. He reluctantly changed it but it was just average still. My wife's lobster was ridiculously expensive and pretty chewy. Shame. Their bread was good though, and the French onion soup was excellent but at $12 for a soup not sure it's worth going there for that. My two cents, for what it's worth.

The food was above average but expect to experience poor service if you don't pull up in a $125k+ car. We waited way past out reservation as we watched others come in without a reservation and be seated first. We were sat in a corner of the restaurant with families that also appeared out of place.

The host and waiter were very accommodating. We sat on the patio with a wonderful view of the boardwalk, beach and jelly fish aquarium. The ambience was normal not over the top. Not a wow moment but nice. The service was ok but not nearly what we are accustomed to. Due to an overcast (weather) there was a little rain. Where we were seated seemingly in between where the patio tents joined, water dripped on the table. The weather outside was summer warm and because where we were seated (across from the door), every trims the door opened you felt the aircondition bellow out the door.\n\nThe steak was very warm & tender. Awesome. As expected. \nThe tuna tartare was nice. However the salmon was fresh \n\nThe presentation was very dull and lacked creativity. \n\nOverall it's a ok restaurant. Not a 'wow' restaurant and the price was suitable to what was rendered.

Arrived early for our 7:15 dinner reservation. We were rudely told that reservations are not for dining outside and that the wait time was 1 hour. We agreed to wait. By 8:20 we couldn't wait anymore. We told them we would take the inside table they repeatedly offered to us. Once we told them we would eat inside they told us to 'go back to sit and watch the jelly fish tank and they would be with us shortly'. \nAfter waiting another 10 minutes we walked out!

We had a business dinner at Steak 954 with a few vendors coming from GA. We wanted to provide a nice ambiance and this certainly fulfilled our wishes. The food was amazing from the steaks to the appetizers and the wine selection was terrific. The only complaint was the outdoor cushions were moldy and had an awful odor, 3 people commented on this but after the food and wine came there weren't any complaints, that's for sure.

My husband and I went to Steak 954 to celebrate both out anniversary and his birthday. Shortly after being seated, the manager brought over some celebratory champagne. We started with a seafood platter. The quality of the seafood was very good. Very fresh. My husband ordered an Oscar style filet, while I ordered the lamb with a red wine reduction. The filet was cooked perfectly, but the highlight by far was the lamb. It was just amazing. We also ordered the truffle macaroni and cheese to share, which was just ok. For dessert, we ordered the key lime baked Alaska...delicious! They also presented 2 red velvet cupcakes since we were celebrating. They were good, but I think we were both too stuffed to really enjoy them as I am sure we would have if we had not already overdone it. All in all, the food was worth the trip, but it was the amazing service by the whole staff, but Danny in particular, that will bring us back again in the future. Danny really made our night, from helping us navigate the menu, to making suggestions for where we could continue our celebration after dinner.

At the finest restaurants, servers generally must call for a sommelier to recommend an appropriate wine to diners. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about wine and suggested Tommasi Ripasso, a wonderful Italian red, enjoyed by all. In addition, every dish our server recommended was outstanding. Among the top winners: refreshing lobster and crab coconut ceviche; flavorful Brussels sprouts; and incredibly tender Wagyu skirt steak.

We indicated on the reservation that we were entertaining friends from Italy and requested an outdoor table with a view. Our friends arrived before us and had been seated indoors. During my exchange with the hostess, I indicated we requested an outdoor table. She responded that she called me to indicate no outdoor table was available and they are assigned on a first come basis. I received no such call. Quite firmly I indicated that this was our first and will be our last time dining at the restaurant. Magically a man from the restaurant appeared and directed us to one of several empty tables outside.

The only reason to pay the high price is if you get an outdoor oceanfront table in perfect weather. Otherwise, go to Outback.

Just saying that for 1/3 of the price, you will have the same experience.\n\nSpecifically, the dining room is so loud that you can't have a conversation; linens and cutlery are low-end; presentation of the food is not special; a side of mashed potatoes is $11.00!

Even though I let the staff know of this subpar meal no offer of apology was made. I would not recommend this place . There are too many other great steakhouses to dine in the area.

One would expect for a two hundred dollar plus meal to walk away satisfied. Unfortunately this is not the case for our most recent visit to this restaurant. The service was deplorable, we were practically ignored by our waiter, especially when trying to order a drink. U forgiveable at this level of dining. The food was spectacular, unfortunately not enjoyable due to the less than stellar service... Say hi once I a while to your patrons!?!\n\nTry LuLu's up the street...

I ordered a well done skirt stake. It looked well done but after taking a few bites, it just kept getting bloodier. I didn't ask for another one because it grossed me out and knew I wasn't going to eat it. I told the waitress about and she asked If I wanted to take it home. About 3/4 of the steak was left. Apparently she told the manager and they took off the sides of the bill. One of the sides we didn't eat. It was suppose to be mushrooms and broccoli, didn't look like it so we didn't touch it. I'm from New England and probably spoiled with the customer service up here but any regular restaurant would have taken a different approach in this situation, especially being a restaurant with an a la carte menu.

I had called ahead to let the restaurant know that my fiancé and I would be having brunch after our beach wedding ceremony at the restaurant. I spoke with someone for about 10 minutes asking him if there was a way to make our brunch extra special to celebrate the marriage. His suggestion would be to add flowers to the table which I agreed with, as it sounded nice. When I walked in I was told that none of these notes were kept in the reservation and that the service is not offered. We then told the waiter that we had just gotten married, and he hardly congratulatedus. Plus, there was no special congratulations or services provided, and the hundred dollar bottle of champagne we ordered was room temperature. We told the waiter and he offered no remedy. We felt way more special when my fiancé had had his birthday dinner there and the restaurant made a special effort. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone from this point forward, and I used to do a lot of client entertaining here. What a disappointment.

When a restaurant is inside the W Hotel..you expect great food and great service. Those expectations were both met, however, the NOISE level was acceptable and incomprehensible. You can always expect a steady loud background noise in any busy establishment with business groups or a filled restaurant, but you should never expect loud, obnoxious, drunk patrons sporadically yelling at the top of their lungs at one another as if they're in the comfort of their own dining room at home-for an entire hour! The staff even looked perturbed and confused, but never went over to that party of 6 to try and rectify the situation. Unacceptable at a 5-star steakhouse.\nWe finished our meal, grabbed our dessert to-go, and rushed home for the Tylenol.

The alarm strobes flashed the entire time that we were there and the fire alarm sounded every couple of minutes. Then the air conditioning system shut off ! The place became miserable, stuffy, hot and humid. Not to mention loud, as people had to talk over the blaring alarm system. We quickly finished our meal, asked for our check and left.

The attentive wait staff and the creative and flavorful food saved this special anniversary dinner from ruin. Too be fair, I think if we would have been seated in the main dining room we would have been fine throughout. But we were seated in the corner of the small dining room off a small bar and that made for a rowdy, loud experience that was unwanted and frankly surprising.\n\nThe food however was the standout of the evening and it did not disappoint. Each guest had something different and we all complimented the creativity and the presentation. As a Fort Lauderdale resident I would only recommend this restaurant if you are seated in the main dining room. The small dining room was so loud we could not hear each other from across the table. We found ourselves yelling back and forth and in the end my ears were ringing from the noise.\n\nHey, I understand it's Saturday night, guests want to have fun but at these prices (Think: not a cheap date) you expect to at least be able to talk to your guests. With all the great restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, I can honestly say, I don't think I will be back... at least not for a dinner for four.\n\nDidn't stay for dessert...

Valet and hostess/Maitre D were great and very accomodating. However, for brunch the food was OK, nothing of actual notable characteristics. The dishes had good taste but lacked visual appeal.

When initially perusing the menu, the first thing we noticed was there was a price drop to $60 for the Waygu filet. It used to be $70. So far so good. Then she bit in to it and looked at me and said 'this is different'. We asked the waiter what was new and he said that 'today was the first day we switched from Australian Waygu to American Waygu. \n\nBottom line, the restaurant staff did everything right, took my wife's steak off the check, bought each of us a drink and we paid the check.\n\nBUT, we will not return to Steak 954. One does not expect things to go wrong at those prices!

Let me start off by saying that the meal I ate at Steak 954 was hands down the most enjoyable meal of my life. The service was impeccable (our server had a vast knowledge of the specials, side dishes, appetizers, wine list, deserts, and the intricate backgrounds of each cut of steak. I ordered the 16 ounce bone-in filet mignon with a side of white truffle fries. The filet was beyond cooked to perfection, and had the perfect balance of juiciness and flavor. I was a bit on the fence about ordering the side dish of fries because of how expensive it was ($11). But when it came out from the kitchen, it was a mountain of fries crusted in white truffle and seasonings. The view was beautiful, the ambiance was incredible, the free valet parking was a nice touch, and I was surprised to find that the request I made when I made my reservation, which was to please be seated near a window if possible, was fulfilled. They set aside a beautiful little table for my girlfriend and I right by the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, which allowed us to watch the buzzing nightlife and gorgeous beach views. I will definitely be back!!!

Took my daughter to one of my local favorites for her birthday lunch. We had an outdoor table overlooking beautiful Fort Lauderdale beach. The server was fantastic. He was very attentive, knowledgable about the menu and very kind to my daughter. The food came out just as ordered, the pre lunch cocktails were delicious and, for dessert, he brought out a cupcake with a candle on his own. It wasn't ordered which was a really super touch. I would recommend Steak 954 for lunch or dinner. You can't beat the scenery, the W hotel is a cool place to hang out and the food is exceptional.

The best ribeye I have ever tasted, I only wish it had had a bone in it. It was cooked medium with a crisp, salty exterior. My husband had a nice porterhouse with the bone in, also cooked a perfect medium. The food and service were top notch, but the place looks and feels nothing like a traditional steakhouse. The atmosphere is modern, full of hard surfaces, including the wooden tabletops, so even when it isn't full, it's noisy. The salty butter tasted great on the bread. The caesar salad had a creamy, just slighty sweet dressing, and a nice anchovy fillet, plus small, tasty and crisp croutons. The side dishes are easily shared by 3 or 4 people. The fries were thin and crisp, and the creamed spinach was not overly creamed with just a hint of nutmeg. The menu has plenty of fish on it, probably more fish than beef, and some less costly options, too. The dessert menu is different, with several creative dishes, none of which appealed to me. Perhaps a simple cheesecake, brulee or berry dish could be added. The wine list is varied, with something for every palate.

I consider myself a foodie and someone who appreciates a fine dining experience. Steak 954 is one of my staples to impress. Even if a family celebration or a business meeting, Steak 954 never disappoints. \n\nThe cocktails are very well prepared, the presentation and attention to detail is excellent. \n\nThe steaks in my experience have always been cooked to perfection. The blue eye tuna tacos are definitely my favorite dish on the menu. My teenage daughter who will not eat fish fell in love with them this particular evening. \n\nThis evening the service was a bit lacking in a busy pre-mothersday saturday night but i will not hold that against them considering the food was divine. My son woke up at 8am asking if i had eaten his leftovers and my mother's husband made lunch reservations for the tuesday following. \n\nThank you Steak 954 for making me look good

The restaurant wasn't busy, which gave our waiter no excuse for poor service. He was never around, we had to wait long time to order, to get our meals and to ask for the check... our steaks weren't cooked accordantly to how we ordered (my steak was cold, medium rare... I ordered medium), the other steaks weren't good either. Some of us had salad and no one ever asked if we needed black pepper... in fact, one of us wanted salt, but our waiter was no where around so we gave up on asking for the salt. Just bad experience overall. Unfortunately our waiter never gave us his name... We had lunch last Thursday at 12pm.

Service was excellent and very accommodating. Our waiter made several suggestions and really understood the menu. The problem is relative value. Charging $60 - $80 for a steak entree in a casual restaurant with children and dudes in shorts and flip-flops is just plain expensive. While the food justifies high prices (my wife said that her beet salad was the best she ever had and my steak tartar appetizer was nearly perfect) the casual atmosphere does not.\n\nOn a side note - even the valet guys were accommodating and very polite. I think the W Hotel management spends a lot of effort on selecting and training employees.

My waitress really ruined my experience. I wanted to bring my business associates to your establishment, but after my experience with her I changed my mind. She called me a 'cheap date' because I didn't want much to eat. She kept making faces at me the whole night and after my dinner she humiliated me by saying that I had insufficient funds in my account, I have more than enough. She then guided me to the back and I easily took money out of my account. I feel as though she intentionally did that, and the fact that I was charged an extra $4 at the atm really upsetted me. I will NEVER come back to this establishment.

I went there during spring break, and was expecting great steak since it was so recommended. I made the reservation, and got there about 10 minutes late, my fault. However, even then I had to wait another 10 min for a table. The environment was nice, and the waiter was professional, except saying everything was superb. Me and my friends all ordered the best steak they had, the wagyu ribeye, and it was so fat and salty, we can't finish it and did not feel good after eating it. We went to Truluck's the day before, and it was great, the setting, and every dishes, we did not try the best dishes they offered, but ordered from menu. The price there was reasonable and the food was superb, comparing these two I would just go to Truluck's and not coming to this place ever again.

954 Steak seems to be a hot spot but behind the facade there is very little besides the food. The service is awful, there is the head waiter, that takes the order and passes by 3 times during the whole meal and then there is an army of other waiters doing all sorts of things from bringing and placing the necessary silverwhere, they needed two attempts to get it right, serving the food, here they also got it wrong, despite the clear indication provided by the silverwhere on the table.\n\nApart from that none of them, including the head waiter had an idea how to serve the drinks we ordered, in terms of who should be served first and from each side should the drinks be served. Although you have to provide a name during the reservation my name was not used one single time, not even after handing over my credit card, which indicates no guest recognition whatsoever in a restaurant that seems to think of itself as the supra sum of the steakhouses. \n\nThe cream on top of the cake came the next day when I saw in my email the credit card charge notification. The restaurant increased the 18% tip I gave to over 20%. As an European I understand that the tip is the lion share of the salary of a waiter but I am used to tip as a gesture to recognize both good food and service and not because I have to. By giving 18% tip and considering all the above I felt that I was being vey generous towards the waiter team but apparently the restaurant seemed to have a different opinion. \n\nNever is a strong word but in this case never again doesn't really say it all.

We had made a note that it was our anniversary when we made our reservation and that was even acknowledged the moment we arrived at the hostess area - a very nice touch. We went to the bar first for a couple of drinks and they were great! The 'Remedy' is a must try. I had to pace myself not to drink it too quickly because it was sooo delicious! As soon as we arrived at our table, a very friendly sommelier (I regretfully forgot his name) welcomed us with 2 glasses of champagne (it was a delicious one too). His welcome set the tone for the evening and really made it a special night. Our server, Amy was extremely friendly and courteous. They managed to make you feel at home at a venue that can seem to be a bit stuffy from the outside all while still giving you an upscale experience. Most importantly the food was great! We had the shellfish platter, lobster bisque, steak and sides and everything was phenomenal. No regrets or wishing you had ordered something else. This place is great for special occasions but so good that we'll be back just because it's a Wednesday!

Good and bad. The food was excellent and the waiters excellent. However, the welcome was chaotic and I do not expect to be told to wait after having made a reservation. The wine list was very impressive and contained many of my favorite wines including the Grand Cru Chablis (1 of only 7) and the gorgeous clarets especially the Latour, and the Pichon Longueville , and St Juliennne. However, my Pomerol had suffered heat stroke and was unusually furry to the taste and drew the tongue, which makes me nervous about ordering a far more expensive bottle. Please don't let these wines suffer a Florida climate in storage, or perhaps ensure they clear the hot dockside quickly. Only other comment is I could not hear myself speak and some sound dampening on the walls and floors would be welcome. Perhaps I had a bad experience but I would be prepared to give this restaurant a second chance.

My wife and I had reservations at 6:30 PM on a Sunday evening (we were celebrating Valentines Day late). When I pulled up to the valet and got out I told the attendant we had reservations at Steak 954 (first time we had been to this restaurant). The attendant told me he had to go get a special ticket because of this. Upon returning, he told me I could have my car parked right in front of the restaurant for $20. He then told me I needed to pay him at that point. This struck me as odd but I paid the $20 regardless. When we finished our meal the server asked for my valet ticket for validation. He further informed me parking was only $5! When leaving the restaurant to get my car I noticed my car was no where to be found in the front of the restaurant. I told the attendant I had already paid another attendant $20 to have my car parked right in front. He asked me who took my money. I pointed to a young black gentlemen and said 'him'. The young gentleman came up to me and asked me my name. I told him (he had asked for my name when I paid him the $20 and wrote it on his portion of the valet ticket. He said he did not recall our conversation. I became more and more leary of the situation. The young gentleman was acting a little 'sketchy' about the situation. I looked him in the eye and said 'Look, I paid you $20 to have my car parked right in front of the restaurant. Obviously, this did not happen. Please find my car, NOW!' He obviously noticed I was becoming agitated. He reached in his pocket, pulled out $20 and gave it to me saying 'Obviously, you paid for a service you did not get, sorry.' I gave him back $5. \n\nTo added insult to injury, when I looked at my car the next day in the daylight someone has left two black magic marker pen marks on the driver's door arm rest.

My husband and I I had been to Steak 954 several times for lunch (you can't get a better Philly steak sandwich in S Fla-$9.54 w/a beautiful view of the beach) and dinner (great steaks, seafood and drink). My husband had a 'bad experience' while dining with some of his friends (serves him right for going without me) The manager (Peter) personally called him after he posted his experience on Open Table. He wanted to know the specifics of his displeasure, understood what happened, agreed it was unacceptable, and invited him to return as his guest. We returned to celebrate our anniversary and had an amazing experience. Our waiter was the best! (I am sorry but I have forgotten his name) My husband's steak was cooked to perfection, I loved my sea bass, and the apps (tuna tacos and crab cake) and our special desert was amazing! Plus my husband loved the bourbon drinks on the menu. They have the best mixologists in town! There are a few excellent steak restaurants in S Fla to choose from but there are few like Steak 954 that puts the customer first, cares about the customer, and does the right thing to keep there customers coming back. My suggestion is if something is not going perfect (and I'm sure it will) ask for the manager, and if Peter is on hand, you will not be disappointed .

Steak tasted like it was done in a cat iron skillet, not bad but I prefer open flame.

We went for lunch on New Years Day so it was a little hectic with holiday tourists. Adding to the confusion was a sudden and unexpected downpour which rendered useless most of their outdoor dining tables, In spite of it, we had a decent lunch that was slow to arrive but tasty.

I gave this place 4 stars because of the location. We were seated across the ocean. It was like having brunch at the beach. \nHowever the food was ok. \nThe coffee was strong and that is excellent for me. But I did have to ask for a warm cup because the coffee cups in which they serve their coffee are like soup bowls.

Does not deserve a 26 for food rating in Zagat. Very disappointing.

Excellent upscale dining experience. All of the food was memorable and the fish tank in the front really makes the ambiance.

I made reservations for Steak 954 last month and was a bit nervous. I hadn't heard of it before browsing OpenTable. I asked some of the surgeons I work with and some coworkers if they had ever been. I got great feedback so my husband and I got excited. The jellyfish tank is just as spectacular as everyone said. What a beautiful accent to a lovely dining room!! I was initially disappointed about not getting a table with a view of the beach or close to the tank. However, once the evening got going, it didn't matter. Our server, Eddie, was so wonderful and friendly. He immediately wished us 'Happy Anniversary' and took our drink order. Before I knew it, Maurice (I believe he's one of the managers) brought us complementary champagne! It was such a pleasant surprise. We've been to other big name steak restaurants all over the country for special occasions and that has NEVER happened. My husband enjoys Glenlivet and they rarely ever have an 18 year aged bottle when we go out. Well, he was quite pleased that Steak 954 had some. Dinner and drinks came in a timely fashion. We both ordered the 16 oz. aged New York strip with truffle au gratin potatoes and the pear tart for dessert. Everything was plated beautifully and tasted delicious. We were also treated to a complimentary dessert. The only critique I could even mention is that my steak was a little more cooked than I personally prefer. With that being said, it was still moist. Honestly, the whole evening went so well, that didn't even matter enough to be displeased. Great staff, outstanding service, beautiful dining room and a night to remember. Thanks, Steak 954!

Had Thanksgiving dinner there which was good. Pricey, but good! Then had breakfast this past Sunday with friends. Our ginger-haired waitress was awesome! COFFEE is amazing; so strong and yummy! Food was good!

Very Nice place to eat. Bit pricy for the quality of food. I have had better lobster at a 1/3 the price. the lobster was good but bland little chewy. Steaks were very good but some what charred on the outside. Great flavor and tender. But again have had better at much lower price. So if you are looking for an upscale price/atmosphere and have money to burn great place to eat.

The meat did not taste at all - it was overcooked and had no taste - watery

I thought for the price the table should have had tablecloths. The steaks were amazing. The sides were lame. For $11 I want my mashed potatoes to be hot. And for $11 I want my mushrooms to be whole big button style not sauteed and sliced. When we were paying our check the waiter was watching me count out his tip! I would give it a second visit thou!

Drinks were expensive as was the dinner menu. The food was very good, small portions, good serve. I've been there before and would go back again. All my guests from out of town were pleased with their dinners as well.

Items we tried all had a chef's creativity to it, thus enhancing the atmosphere, the view, the service, and the modern flair. If you enjoy good food, a water view, and excellent coffee then this is worth exploring.

The decor and location are perfect the hostesses and our 2nd waiter after we changed tables were great. My only complaint would be the 1st kinda rude waiter we had and 1st table they sat us at was surrounded by couples with young kids... I don't mind children but when im having a $$$$ meal I don't want to hear a bunch of whiny kids. But the filet Mignon was amazing it melted in my mouth was seasoned, seared and cooked perfectly. The hashbrown side dish was bland and tasted a tad undercooked but the Mac and Cheese side was great.. I will be back even if it's just for the steak hopefully soon before I go back on my diet.

I was at 954 celebrating a birthday. Nice restaurant and service was decent. However, I was not impressed with the steak. I had the bone-in-filet mignon and it was very salty. I am a steak lover and have had better elsewhere.

We absolutely enjoyed our night at Steak 954. The restaurant is so relaxing. We have eaten there several times and each time it is amazing. This time we tried some different items on the menu - We had the Branzino Fish, Swordfish, Salmon, and the Rib-eye. The Seafood Platter was incredible and has always been the best party of our meal. I must say that the service was great and our reservations were right on time with no waiting. We will always be huge fans of Steak 954.

One of my all-time top three meals. Stylish environs, delicious food, energetic vibe; and, oh yes, luminescent jellyfish. The waygu flank steak was the most delicious, tender, flavorful piece of meat I've ever eaten.

The service at Steak 954 is always exceptional. We frequently have a waiter that is new to SFL, usually from NY, Phil, NJ and they are great additions to the wait staff. The cocktails are consistently good, Cosmo was excellent. I had the 8 oz Filet prepared medium and it was perfect, great flavor and tender. The creamed spinach, yumm! Great seating area outside overlooking the beach with heaters going as the temp dropped into the 60's...wow. We are never disappointed and will be back.

We stopped by for brunch this Sunday. The design of the restaurant was nice and what you would expect from a W. We sat on the terrace which was great. We ordered some appetizers (crab cakes and oysters) and some entree items (eggs Benedict, omelet, steak). Unfortunately the entrees came before the appetizers. Then as we were eating the entree the apps came which we sent back as just decided to eat in reverse. Part way through eating they were bought out the apps again. Dessert also was a little messed up. 2 of the party were gluten intolerant. We had informed them this at the beginning. My father just wanted ice cream but what came out were ice cream sandwiches full of items containing gluten. The 2nd attemp was regular ice cream but also with cookies crumbs in it......the food runners did not really know what was what and what contained what. They did adjust the bill slightly but you would expect much better service from a W, a big shame because the food itself was excellent!

When you are craving a giant, juicy steak. Tender, rare but encrusted with a bit too much salt for me and the ceasar salad was drenched in dressing - next time I'll simply ask them to hold off on the salt, put the dressing on the side and it will be great. Side dishes of brussels sprouts and cauliflower were great compliment to everyones steaks. Their rendition of key lime pie with kefir lime was excellent!\nI've dined there twice in the last month for biz dinners, and it was quite loud. so this may not be the perfect romantic spot (unless there are quieter tables). Just writing this makes me crave their filet.

Title says it all. Compared to Prine 112, Smith & Lawensky, capital Grill, chops, this is one of the better steaks. Pricey- but so are the others. I recommend!

Living in the Philadelphia area we are very familiar with the Starr restaurant conglomerate and have enjoyed many meals at a variety of his establishments. That said, I was very disappointed with the ribeye I had at Steak 954. You would expect, at the very least, the Steaks would be memorable in a good way, mine was not. \nI ordered my ribeye mid-rare and it arrived well into medium. The meat was under seasoned requiring me to add both salt and pepper. The cauliflower and kale was over seasoned to the point of being inedible. \nSteak 954 is located within a mile or two of other steakhouses including Shula's, Capital Grill and Truluck's. You would think 954 would want to be competitive. It's not and I will not return.\nInterestingly, we ate at Truluck's the evening before and had a perfectly cooked and seasoned ribeye. It was very memorable, in the best possible way.
