The place is just perfect all over. It has a view of the ocean, service was wonderful manager came out to check on us ,making sure all was just right.
Lovely tank with unusual jelly fish so cool to watch them swim. Definitely will be back again for a special event. Also the hotel is beautiful inside especially the livingroom on the second floor lobby area great dim ambiance perfect for a drink.
Thank you all for a wonderful dinner experience.
Ilona bohm5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryWe celebrated our 5th year anniversary there. The staff was wonderful and made us feel like "it was all about us". Watching the blue ocean waves off in the distance and dining on sumptuous food can't be beat.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to the nameBest steak in Fort Lauderdale. The filet is so good that the Wagyu cut is not even necessary. And to start, definitely try the foie gras tuna tacos.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to celebrate a birthdayOur food, service and celebration was wonderful. Lobster bisque was rich and creamy, the bronzino (a new fish for me) was prepared perfectly and served with salsify, a tasty root vegetable that was also new to me. Our table shared grilled asparagus and truffled potatoes gratin. The novel combinations of flavors were a delight, and artfully chosen. Although I ordered the ice-cream sampler for my dessert (chocolate rosemary among the trio), I also received a dense chocolate cupcake delivered on a plate with "happy birthday' scribed in chocolate sauce, courtesy of the restaurant.
And don't miss the moon jelly fish in their giant glowing aquarium -- calming, dancing beautifully, elegant.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful ViewLovely dinner on the balcony, excellent lobster, and the fancy fun cheese steak with champagne! Service was friendly not stuffy. The restaurant is lively and the balcony is more quiet. Really enjoyed the dinner and plan to go back again!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMStephen Starr SouthThis is a typical Stephen Starr restaurant. Familiar things, created or presented with some unique touch.
The atmosphere - very Starr. The menu - steakhouse with an upscale feel. I started with the Caesar salad with white anchovies. Again, familiar with a unique touch. In this case, the white anchovies added an unpleasant fishy taste that this anchovy lover could do without. The wedge salad was more petite than your typical steakhouse wedge making it feel somewhat empty.
Steaks are unique - juicy, tender but not charred so it didn't have that intense flavor. Lamb Chops were good but no wow. Truffle potato - tasty but a bit dry.
All in all, good experience if you want steak with style. I prefer more standard steakhouses.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMReally NiceVery romantic place for dinner. Low-lit, beautiful view of the ocean and nice ambiance inside. The only complaint about the atmosphere was it was quite loud inside.
The service at the host stand was poor. They were very distracted, kept allowing other guests to interrupt our seating process and took their time seating us. The service at our table was fantastic though. I had the best filet I've had in years. The only downside was they seem to load the butter on everything.
Afterwards, we enjoyed the nice lounging furniture that they had outside on their deck. It was the perfect way to end the night.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticEverything was wonderful! Made my birthday very special Patrick is a fantastic waiter, and the food is delicious!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable.This was the second time I've eaten at Steak 954. The first was on a business dinner and this time was with my girlfriend and my mother. We took my mom out for her birthday. The food the first time was excellent and this second visit confirmed it was not a fluke. The scallops are the best I've had, the miso black cod is unbelievable and the steaks are absolutely top notch. The service was also phenomenal. I really can't recommend this place enough. It's definitely on the higher end, pricing-wise, but for those special occasions where you're in the mood to splurge(or if price isn't a factor for you), Steak 954 is sure to be a winner.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent steak!!Food was excellent. Best steak I've ever had --except for my own cooking --
Had a NY strip and asked for it "Pittsburgh
Rare"... They actually did it right. Most restaurants

Also had tuna taco appetizers, which were
My only complaint was the noise level. There were a few large
Tables with enthusiastic diners.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steaks are outstanding!The steaks are outstanding! The enormous jelly-fish tank is a one-of-a-kind and just beautiful.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm going backHighly enjoyable evening, the Kobe sliders and Bigeye tuna taco apps were perfect, the steaks cooked to perfection and if you don't order the bok choy, you're making a big mistake. I should also note, we waited in the bar for a few minutes, I ordered a negroni, my buddy a Godfather and they were made to perfection.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery hip vibe and wonderfulVery hip vibe and wonderful food. Perfect service.....best hotel ever experienced too!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMServer David was great andServer David was great and was very accomodating and he read our mind for each and everything we needed that evening from menu selection, candles, wine selection and dessert. Thank you David for a fantastic evening. My girl friend and I are very grateful and we will defnitely be back.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in Town!!!Most incredible place I've ever been to.. From the minute you walk in to the time u leave it is a whole magical experience. The food is delicious. Highly recommend the bone in filet. Definitely the best place in South FL to take that special someone.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and ambianceWe had a fabulous waiter named Robert G. He was so polite, professional, and very passionate about the food at the restaurant. Ask to be seated outside if the weather is suitable. We had a gorgeous view of the ocean and it was very romantic. I had a wonderful steak tartar appetizer, which was especially good with their wonderful bread. I also had the tuna and foie gras tacos which were good, but a bit saltier than I remembered. They were still all eaten though! The food could be a bit better given the price, but the view and superb service made it a five star experience and well worth it!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food at very highVery good food at very high prices. The cherry brown cocktail I had was a well made bourbon drink (think a sweeter manhattan) but $14. The East coast oysters were well above average; the West coast oysters were good but not great. Snow crab claws were very tasty. I went with the Waygu ribeye. It was a very well seasoned and perfectly cooked steak but $85 for the premium name of the beef. I would have probably valued it closer to $70. The trio of ice cream sandwiches was an excellent desert. Service was attentive and friendly. It's a energetic but very loud venue. The noise level improved after 10:30 PM. In short, it's great food that's priced just slightly over where I would put it to get a five star review.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMTop classSteak 954 never disappoints , we eat here each time we visit Fort Lauderdale. It serves fantastic seafood and steaks, always worth seeing what specials are on offer. This visit it was lamb lollipops , so so good. Yes it is expensive but so worth it.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the jelly fish aquarium!I loved the jelly fish aquarium! The hostesses were all very nice, and the wait staff very attentive. I was staying at the W for a work conference, and ate here both nights! The truffle mac and cheese was too good to only eat once. The second night I had the NY strip steak, and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had!! And I loved sitting on the patio overlooking the beach. Would definitely come back next time I am in Fort Lauderdale.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA great meal, didn't feelA great meal, didn't feel at all like a hotel restaurant.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best steak in south FloridaAmazing service and great food. Very nice spot on the breach.
We had one small problem but the staff went above and beyond and made dinner perfect.
I am from NYC so a bit spoilt when it comes to dining. These guys are right up there with the best. Amazing meal and evening.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner to which all else is compareSteak 954 is the place you compare each and every subsequent meal to - with none ever being as good. It was a friend's birthday and they went the extra mile with a complimentary dessert complete with "Happy Birthday" on the plate as well as allowing us to drop off gift bags in advance to have them ready on the table upon arrival. Our server was AMAZING and it will only be a short time until I'm back for another incredible meal.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steak in South Florida.Best Steak in South Florida.

We had heard terrific things and it surpassed our expectations- the food was terrific- amazing choices and our waiter, Aldo (I think!) was fantastic- so warm, nice, generous with his time - we stayed for over 3 hours - it was lovely! THANK YOUO.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time with a group ofGreat time with a group of 10 for bachelorette dinner!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVacation For Your TastebudsThe overall ambiance of 954 is very Miami Art Deco. The wagyu fillet mignon is like an express elevator to heaven and the truffle mac n cheese takes your taste buds on a flavor filled journey.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night!We went here for our anniversary. I can not say how great everything was. They greet us with well wishes & complimentary champagne. We had ask to sit outside, they gave us a table with a great view of the water. It is a little further up the strip from the noise & crowds, so was perfect. The service was attentive but not intrusive, we never felt rushed. We had the porterhouse steak for 2, it was excellent! I'm a steak lover so for me to say that is huge. I would definitely go back again.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food, great serviceLovely restaurant - fantastic raw bar options, delicious steak and vegetables meal (although a tiny bit on the salty side), and the cheesecake crème brûlée was beautiful. Highly competent and kind service provided by Henry. Absolutely enjoyable vacation dinner spot.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the brunch! The vanillaLoved the brunch! The vanilla french toast with dulce leche was AMAZING!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMService was outstanding. WeService was outstanding. We started with the lobster bisque and the tuna/foie gras tacos. The bisque was perfect. If you're looking for a chunky bisque, this is not for you. The tacos were very good except that the foie gras really got lost in the taco. For the second taco, I pulled the foie gras off and ate it separately and it was perfectly seared and tasty. Next, we got the 18oz rib eye and the lamb chops. Both were excellent. The rib eye was probably about 2 inches thick and juicy throughout. The lamb chops were tasty and a good size. My wife only got through one. We got the mushrooms/onions and the cauliflower and both were well prepared accompaniments. Great experience.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect ribeye!!!The place is typical american stadium restaurant full of making loud noise native americans. My kobe ribeye (85$) was very good (!!!) and I enjoyed every piece of it with a half bottle of Estancia wine (42$) from California. But I was surprised with a behavior of black people sitting left and right to me. They supposedly were from middle class considering the prices from the menu. They were pretty whimsical and sending their steaks back to kitchen pretending it has been overcooked or undone. I'm absolutely sure they played unfair game because the cuisine is super in this restaurant. The waiter was very patient. I was thinking when listened to their odd conversation-Does anybody remind them how many years ago they descended a palm?
