Stéphane’s Steak & Seafood - Boca Raton
Stéphane's says bye bye to BocaOwner of the restaurant, Stéphane Lang-Willar, sold and closed the doors this Sunday, June 2nd, 2013. What a shame... Boca Raton will never see an opportunity to welcome such a beautiful restaurant made with such care and goodwill again.
All the staff was unbelievable. And the food was the best I have every tried. This restaurant would have done great anywhere else!! But this little town of Boca Raton is just too pretentious to adhere to other people's success. Pity...
Sad.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMKid friendlyHow cool that they give I pads to kids so they can be entertained while the patrons eat.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSophisticated dinning bistro style!Typically French restaurants give you minute portions and charge you a fortune.
Here they provide a wonderful assortment on gastronomical treats AND charge you a fortune!
But, as they say, "Expensive but worth it!"
The large spacious dining room to the left as you come in is romantic and you'll be able to hear yourself speak.
If you make the mistake of dinning in the "pit" as you come in, although bistro-chic, and less formal, there is a constant din.
The food is fresh, preservative, hormone and herbacide-free, the raw bar is laudable and the deserts are to die for (I feel my arteries clogging as I write)
This is NOT a family restaurant. This is for adults with a sophisticated pallet and a desire to get away from the riff raff.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat interesting food withgreat interesting food with a terrific wine list. Service was great and attentive. Interactive tablet for looking at food that is lit up to read If someone can't read menu. Loved the fixed price dinners during the week. A great plus and my husband said portions and choices were great. I had the mussels in blue cheese and they were incredible as was the dover sole special. Ggreat place we will be back and rec to others. Free valet also for those that need it.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Stephane's lastWe went to Stephane's last night for the first time to try it.

The eggs benedict is always excellent and the French toast is to die for. I took my mom on Mother's Day and the food and service was just as good even though it was busy. Thank you for a special time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the musselsStephane's offers mussels prepared six different ways from traditional french styles to asian flare. On Mondays they offer two pounds of mussels for the price of a pound. If seafood isn't your thing, the steaks are great. Stephanes's also offers risotto and pasta. The menu has an unusual variety, which makes it a great dining experience for many different palates.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMussels HeavenMy wife and I dined once again at Stephane's on Saturday evening and were reminded why we continue to enjoy this fine restaurant. The oysters are always excellent and chilled perfectly, but the mussels are the best we've ever tasted. For the locals, the off season is the perfect time to sample the excellent fare without the attending crowds.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was excellent butEverything was excellent but food was pricey. Would go back again for a special occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, ambiance and service!Love it for lunch! Have not yet been there for dinner. Try Mussels Mondays and the yummy chocolate Godiva layer cake, which was moist and rich but not overly sweet.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch in BocaReferred by a friend, we tried this place for Brunch. Crabcake and Salmon version of Eggs Bene were both very tasty. The atmosphere is an upscale steak/seafood house with a fashion slant. They had fashion runway shows on the TVs. Service very good.

Escargots spectacular and so were the mussels, which were fresh, sweet and had plenty of garlic and herbs. The bar area and the bar bites were all excellent, in fact. Especially noteworthy was the attitude of the waitstaff. The service was just impeccable. Our waiter, Melvin, was one of the best we ever had. He was knowledgeable, pleasant, eager to please, willing to make some substitutions (because of allergies). It makes such a big difference when the staff is outstanding. We will be back again, because it is a rare restaurant that combines perfect service to great food (with a nice atmosphere, of course. For a main course, we tried the Poulet St-Tropez and loved it: perfectly cooked and seasoned and decent portio4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMStefane'sWe had dinner with our good friends last night. The food, decor and service were outstanding. Stefane and his son Roman were greeting every guest as if it was their home. We had various fish dishes. The Bouillabaisse and Bonzini were awesome. Salmon was also very nicely done. The waiter was extremely helpful and attentive. The maitre d Marcel was gracious and welcoming. Even the valet parker was extremely welcoming, well groomed and projected a pride as a representative of this fine restaurant. This is "the place" to go to enjoy an intimate evening with friends and great for couples and any celebratory milestone. Finally, a reason in Boca to step our of the gates. You get what you pay for.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took my mother to Stephane'sWe took my mother to Stephane's for her 93rd birthday. We were incredibly impressed with the ambiance and the food. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly and helped to make this a memorable experience. My mom's friend, who is 96 years old, said it was the best lunch he had ever had! Quite a glowing compliment, I thought! The mussels are the best I have ever eaten. We will definitely be back soon.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I will returnMy wife and I will return to this fantastic restaurant. We celebrated my wife's birthday with family. The food and service were excellent. Whenever there was a question about the menue, an expert came to the table to assist. We started with bar-bites and drinks at the bar. The happy hour prices and the outstanding bar bites were absolutely excellent. The tastes and presentations of the bar-bites were excellent. The bartender was helpful in recommending dishes and drinks to match. The blue point oysters are my favorite as an appetizer and were chilled to perfection and melted in your mouth. The bone-in ribeyes and salmon were perfectly cooked and delicious. The chocolate cake will feed the table.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMStag's leap wine dinner, AMAZING!!!Stag's leap wine dinner, Amazing evening. 3 stars Michelin food and service.

Once seated, my wife commented on the elegance of the decor -- the main color themes are white and black -- with red accents. There is a beautiful flower centerpiece in the middle of the main dining room. Our server was Paul -- he is professional and friendly --and was always there at the right time.
