  • Too overpriced for such low-medium quality cooking
    ChefAmanzio
    Dined on 11/23/2014
    The place is advertised as high standars food 'and cooking' but it's not worth it the price. For this high pric you can get a first class steak, sprouts cooked clean and separated and not in the same grease of steak (if you pay attention, most of the food will taste good but everything is cook in the same oil, grill or pan, even the color of the side food were exactly as same as the meats. Don't take me wrong, food was full of flavor but cooking quality it seems to be very low, not very clean or trying to save money the cook in the same surface as much as they can instead of cleaning, changing pans or respecting the flavor of each distinctive meat, veggies, etc. It's a good place to go, but for the quality and service it should be categorized lower and charge fairly, less and according to the whole quality. Place is very cozy and beautiful indeed. So just be careful before paying that kind of money -you deserve better for what you're paying.-

    Great spot for a girlfriend's night out. We sat at a high-top in the bar. Excellent service and guests were friendly. We had petite filets, cream corn brûlée and split the wedge salad and a great bottle of wine. Can't wait to go back!

  • Not missing the Cork and Cleaver

    Dined on 11/21/2014
    The Cork and Cleaver restaurant was always a favorite of mine and I was disappointed when it was closed for good. It was replaced by a new venue called "Steak 44". Not a title that brings anything specific to mind. That was until I went there for Dinner. Now all steak houses will be compared to it. We were quickly out of the car and into the restaurant thanks to valet parking. We had reservations and were immediately seated and greeted. We were even offered a choice of white or black napkins, a first for me but appreciated. We were served water at once and greeted by our server offering drinks or a menu. The menu was to the point, not multiple pages of the same ingredients in different forms like so many restaraunts these days. Steak (offered in various portions) chops, a fine selection of seafood and a bottle of wine for any taste or pairing. The meat was of above average quality and properly prepared. The big find was the inventive side dishes. We had the house potatoes prepared with cream and cheeses. To compare it to scalloped potatoes would be comparing the Mona Lisa to finger painting. We also had a corn dish prepared so that it tasted like creme brûlée. We could easily have dined on the sides alone so any meat lovers with vegetarian mates, you can both feast at this establishment. The service was impeccable. Anyone can look good when all is well but the proof of superior service is how a problem is solved. Management at Steak 44 is as competent and accommodating as the above average service staff. Nobody hovered but we never waited for anything. I have found my new favorite steak house and plan to return very soon and very often. The lounge was large and inviting. I plan to have lunch at the bar (a habit for me) on my next visit. I highly recommend this restaurant. It's not a budget eatery but very fairly priced for the above average cuisine and service. They provide a dining experience not just a meal.

    Great Arcadia high end steak restaurant. The food is always good, the sides are fantastic, and I find the staff to be very friendly. Can be a little noisy and busy, but for good reason. I was hoping for a bigger bar selection (I like honey jack or maple crown), but a minor issue. Highly recommend.

    My husband and I recently visited Steak 44. We had been going to Cork & Cleaver for years before it burned down. Although the food was delicious, the service was terrific and the ambiance was very nice, I would have to say that the prices were somewhat high. To pay $44.00 for a serving of Chilean Sea Bass is a bit much. And they do not serve prime rib which is one of my favorites. I know that some other reviews stated it was very loud and that is true if you are seated near the bar. We were seated in the back of the restuarant which was very nice and provided a romantic atmosphere. We may go back but it would have to be for a very special occasion. If money is no object, then this is your restaurant.

    This was our second time here. The first was for a birthday and this time for our 19th anniversary. Steak 44 is a beautiful restaurant with outstanding service. From the moment you walk in until the minute you leave you are pampered. The shrimp cocktail is the best we have ever had. The enormous, though pricey 7$/Shrimp, jumbo shrimp were enough for dinner. We complemented our DOZEN with a fantastic fresh Caesar salad topped with a medium cool poached egg. We had a butter cake topped with strawberries and vanilla ice cream for dessert, just like the shrimp, perfection. So why not a 5 star overall rating? TOO LOUD. There isn't a single spot in the place without overhead loud overhead music. This coupled with an enormous number of quests in the dining rooms and its hard to feel relaxed. The bar area, which also has tables, I understand, but we were off on the other side and it was difficult to hear without speaking aloud to each other. If you are wanting a quiet fantastic neighborhood eat this is not it. However, if you are wanting a more vibrant, fantastic neighborhood eat, there is none better!

  • Two out of three ain't bad
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 11/16/2014
    We recently went back to Steak 44 for dinner. Our first two visits were good with well cooked steaks. Our third visit was different. Three of the five steals we ordered were totally mid-cooked. My wife ordered a petite filet butterflied and well done. Not only was her steak not butterflied (the server thought it was) but it was cooked medium rare. The outside of the steak was burnt such that it stuck to the plate. They took it back and further "burned it" ruining the steak. My daughter ordered her steak the same way and got hers medium with some less cooked and ate half her steak. Sides were great as usual though the Brussels sprouts needed some seasoning. While I would go back, I think this is a better place for a couples dinner or small group.

    We have been to Steak 44 a couple of times now and both have been fantastic - the food is exceptional and the service superb. If you are looking for some quiet conversation during dinner, be sure to ask to be seated in one of the rooms away from the main dining room.. Love this place and we look forward to our next visit . . .

    This is a promising place that I would give a second chance to based on the server and management staff. First, it's dark and very hard to read the menu. But that was about the only complaint. Oyster appetizers were excellent. Steaks came out more cooked than requested so we sent them back. Second time was correct and the manager comped dessert because it wasn't done properly the first time. Later in the meal, the server accidentally knocked my glass of water over and I was a bit soaked. I took it in stride as it was only water, but somehow the server and management team ended up comping 2 of our steaks (the ones originally overdone). That was no small change. That left a good impression on the level of service they were willing to show and I would definitely give them another chance when in Scottsdale again.

    The little spoiled baby brother of the Maestros collection of restaurants. I like this one the best as it caters to a more lively crowd without all the burgundy leather and stiletto peer pressures of the other establishments. I just was a steak and a well balanced cocktail or maybe some oysters without all the power people of this town nearby trying to buy my date a bottle of champagne! This place caters to a more modest but successful crowd with the same menu standbys as well as new variety on the menu. No jacket required.

  • Just not as good as City Hall

    Dined on 11/7/2014
    Good food, OK service and atmosphere. Let me say that Steak 44 has really good steaks. I had a great steak, although they over cooked it a little, but still very solid. We sat near the kitchen, were sat next to 80 year old men with 30 year old dates, and it was just an odd experience all around. Weird waiter that didn't really know the menu, it was just difficult to hear about their martinis. Anyway, if I want a good steak and awesome experience, go to City Hall. If you want to change it up, try Steak 44

    This was our second visit to Steak 44, the first was not a great one and we wanted to give the restaurant another opportunity. Who knows, maybe we had an off night the first time. No. The second visit was worse than the first. Waiters that started with us did not remain with us, drink orders were wrong for all three guests, noticed and commented on by new waiter but not corrected. Waiter was kinda jerky about the water selection, crazy but true. The timing of the food was poor. My Wedge salad, I asked for Ranch dressing and no blue cheese, it was covered in blue cheese and blue cheese crumbles. The Corn Brulee did not disappoint. The potatoes were marginal and the steaks, we've had better...much better. We won't be visiting again.

    The server was outstanding. Drinks were generous. The salad was weak, without much character, nor taste. I had their Meatloaf, even better than Mom made. My Wife ordered and enjoyed her Bone in NY streak, even though it was a bit over done. To the servers credit , he recognized that it was not cook to order, and offered to redo it. My wife was hungry and opted to finish it, When the bill arrived , the establishment took the charge for steak off the bill. I said that was hardly necessary. but they insisted.We were celebrating two Birthdays with our friends , and to our delight, the server arrive with deserts, which were outstanding. We will return.

    We were a table of 6 celebrating dinner after our wedding reception the night before. The food, recommendations, wine, etc. was great. The only interesting thing...was when we were about to leave and they provided our take home boxes, the table server (white coat gentleman) seemed very bothered when we asked him if things were mixed up for he placed bags on the left of each person...and one person did not. Since we were friends but not into eating food of others, we asked if we missed a bag? He was not happy explaining to us that he placed one bag to the right of the person. Rolling his eyes as he walked away...I am sure he did not expect we would see that... Our waiter was great...and the dessert was very nice. Thank you!

    Our bussers were top notch and waitress was friendly. Food was outstanding, a bit pricy when nothing is included with steak. Sides were good portions however paying additional for a salad was little more than expected. Our party of four did agree that the steaks were cooked and seasoned to perfection. Not a kid-friendly place (no kids menu) so don't recommend taking young kids.

    From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave the level of service is exceptional! We experienced over the top service while at the restaurant and a follow up call the next day to inquire as to how our dining experience was. The food was amazing. I had a filet while my husband enjoyed the sea bass, both were cooked to perfection. Our other dining companions had a choice of fish and steak as well and everyone was extremely pleased with their choices. The seasonings and butter/oils used were on par - not too much as in many restaurants. We also tried the steamed spinach, mac and cheese and house potatoes ~ all wonderful. Cocktails made the old fashion way and an excellent wine list. Thank you Steak 44 - you nailed it! Well Done

    I have lived in Arizona for over 40 years. I have seen restaurants come and go of all calibers, even the one that used to be where Steak 44 is right now. I have watched this city grow from a town to a thriving city and of course with that comes the quality food. And I say quality because if you don't have that, you don't have a city worth talking about. This is a city of winter visiters and convention people, not to mention all the wonderful sports and concerts that come here. After all, we do have one of the biggest events of all come 2015.....The Super Bowl! Feed them well and they will return. I don't think there is anything you could do to improve upon your restaurant. I know I will return.
