    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. I 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. Steak 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. Interestingly, 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.

    The setting was special, the service was great, but my steak left me feeling disappointed. Ordered the "Prime New York Strip" and it wasn't. It was dry and lack the tenderness and flavor I would expect from this cut of meat. My wife enjoyed her fish and both both of the sides we ordered. The stuffed hash-browns were great, but I came for the meat.

    Best dinner possible for party of 6 (4 adults 2 kids). Previous visit had a few minor complaints & manager must have been alerted. He made a point to check on entire table several time. Server 'Kelli'was most attentive & knowlegable. Food was good value & presentation. Looking forward to return visit.

    I've been to STEAK 954 four times and each experience has been excellent except for this time. We had 4 people order the Filet, 2 ordered it Medium Rare and 2 ordered it Medium. One person, whose birthday it was, wanted to have his cooked Medium Well and we convinced him to try Medium. The waiter said he would tell the chef to cook his "slightly" more to make his to his liking. Unfortunately, I think the chef left all our steaks on too long because not one of the steaks even had a touch of pink in it. While the one person was very pleased with his steak, the other 3 people had severely overdone steaks. In hindsite, we should have returned them however we didn't want to ruin his birthday by making him wait for our steaks to be redone.

  • Crime against wagyu
    JohnWintersVIP
    Dined on 10/21/2014
    Kitchen should not be allowed to handle wagyu. It’s unbelievable that the kitchen can somehow turn a $85 wagyu ribeye into a salt lick. My taste buds were screaming for mercy with each bite. Water was not refilled until the end of the meal. I ended up leaving about $40 of the wagyu on the plate. The tuna/foie gras taco, on the other hand, were excellent.

    Dined here as we wanted some where within walking distance of our hotel on the sea front. We both had fillet mignon and have to say it is one of the best steaks we have had, and we are both fans of a good steak. The restaurant was busy and became reasonably noisy but not impact full of our evening. The service was excellent. We had a bottle of wine which was quite pricey but had a very memorable evening.

    They really know how to spoil an experience. While I have to say the food was very good, when you are presented with the bill for your dinner, you also receive a 4 x 6 inch printed card from the restaurant reminding you to "TIP YOUR SERVER" !! I have never been so rudely treated by a restaurant. Do they think their customers are ignorant peasants? What's next…..a card reminding you "Don't Eat with Your Fingers" ???

    My daughter and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner this past Friday night at Steak 954. We shared the bracon wrapped scallop appetizer and lettuce wedge salad. These were both delicious. For our entree, I had the 8oz filet and she had the aged rubbed rib eye and we shared the truffle au gratin potatos. This was too much but the left overs made a great breakfast the next day. Our server provided outstanding service and was very personable making our Mother/ Daughter dinner extra special.

    Food is always on spot and they are one of the very restaurants in town that understand wine service. I almost always bring wine, they have a moderate corkage fee and they always do a great job taking care of it. Have never had a bad experience here and it must be my 10th visit in the last few years. Keep it up!

    We came here for our anniversary and had a great experience. In our open table reservation, we notified them that it was for our anniversary and we were greeted with complimentary champagne. We also came for the dine out florida pre-fix menu. I had the tuna tacos which were great (probably could just have an order of that for lunch) and then the 6oz filet, which was one of the best steaks I had in a long time. The only thing we were a little disappointed in was the desert.

    In a time when high price doesn't necessarily mean good quality finding a good restaurant can be challenging. Steak 954 is the exception. Went here for "Dine Out" getting to try a wonderful smattering of what they offer on a normal basis. From appetizer to dessert everything was well prepared, seasoned well and great portions. Service was friendly and informative, but need to work on the beer knowledge a little....possibly expanding their offerings. All in all will be back to try one of their many other wonderful creations!

    We spend a lot of time in South Florida and thought that we had been everywhere of note for great steaks. I was blown away by Steak 954! If you don't mind the "unusual" genre of the W Hotels, you will love this place for the food and service. You can't beat the view either! We started with a broiled scallop appetizer and a shrimp cocktail. Very fresh and nicely presented. This was followed by a chopped salad which was excellent and too much for the two of us to share. NY Strip and a fillet followed, perfectly prepared and as I alluded to earlier, the best steaks that we have had in South Florida, and we have been everywhere! House made ice cream and a pair of huge cappuccinos for desert...nirvana. Simply the best.
