My third time there and a regular at the Starr restaurants in Philly. Last night was off. Service was slow, steak overcooked, disorganized. In fairness the other two visits were out of this world--five stars

King crab appetizer was excellent, had the 22 oz bone in prime ribeye - was cooked exactly medium rare as ordered but was overly salty like someone had watched too many top chef episodes and was paranoid about under seasoning…by 2/3 of the way thru the steak I had to tap out due to the salt level…only negative I have, everything else was very good. Still enough to earn 4 stars..

Second time I've eaten here. the food is very good, I had NY Strip steak. It was cooked correctly. the salad was horrible, not sure what's up with that. but the bread was outstanding...
The ambiance is very good, the jellyfish tank is the star attraction.
I wasn't happy with out table, we were stuck right next to a big table full of people and the worst part was the waiter would basically stick his butt in my face in order to reach those people. that is pathetic, especially as the guy was huge.
Overall I recommend this restaurant for dinner. Tried to hit brunch there on Saturday but they don't have brunch...in fact they close at 11am which is odd.

I was extremely disappointed with our experience at Steak 954, specifically the service was lacking. Our server declined to take our entree order multiple times, stating he would be right back, but didn’t come back and once our orders were in, it took nearly an hour. Left us without utensils and also brought someone else’s food to our table. Our drinks were left empty and had to continue to ask for new ones. I don’t expect that type of service at this type of restaurant. Sadly, will not be retuning. Felt like a waste of a night, when it was supposed to be a fun filled evening to kick off our stay in Ft. Lauderdale Beach.

Amazing dinner! Can't recommend enough! Not only was the service fantastic, our meals were the best we've had. We started with the Alaskan King Crab cocktail. I had the Waygu filet and my husband had the 14 Oz. Strip. We ended with the chocolate souffle. All were awesome! Can't wait to go back if we're ever back in Ft. Lauderdale!

My reservation was kept and ready on time, I showed up a bit early and they got us seated quickly. The entire staff was friendly and aware of our Anniversary and congratulated us several times. The servers where very attentive to my wife and I as well as my children. The food was immaculate and cooked to perfection. The ambiance was upscale and modern fine dining, candles lit each table. I will definitely be coming back each time I visit Ft. Lauderdale.

We went in expecting an expensive dinner, but also expected some service and ambiance to come with it. We were sadly disappointed. We were seated and waited for almost 15 minutes before we were ever greeted and that only happened because my husband flagged someone down for water. I could cut them some slack if they were busy or seemed short staffed, however, that wasn’t the case. We almost got up and left it was so frustrating… but I didn’t want to be “those people”. Anyway someone dropped off water, no “someone will be right with you” or common courtesy statement to explain. Then 5 minutes later the waiter came, no hello, no nothing but “Are you ready to order?” No asking about cocktails, no pleasantries at all! So we ordered our meal and it arrived super fast…we ate and got out of there because we were so bummed about the experience. The room was very loud with music and even though there were only a handful of other tables the noise seemed to carry. What a waste of money. Our steaks were good & cooked correctly, the whipped potatoes were tasty but a small serving. I would never go back or recommend this restaurant because no matter how the food tastes the atmosphere and professionalism of the staff should be a high priority at a high end establishment like W!

We had to send the steak back twice because it was not cooked properly. Really surprising for a steakhouse. The seafood platter was ok but the crab legs tasted a bit over cooked too.

El servicio y la comida fueron excelentes, todo estuvo bueno, desde las entradas hasta el postre. Lo único que me encontré es que para el costo y la calidad del restaurant deberían de tener manteles las mesas pues la mayoría estaban rayadas, pues ese restaurante se usa en la mañana para el desayuno también.

If you don’t mind freezing then this is the restaurant for you. We asked our waiter to adjust the temperature because we were cold. He told us it would take a while, well we couldn’t wait to leave. This was my favorite restaurant but not any more. It was the most miserable dining experience and I would not go back. The lobster bar sea grill is a comfortable temp and the food and service is just as good. So disappointed.

We travel frequently and have favorite steak restaurants in the US. This is going to the top of the list.
Superb service (Kevin) and the most memorable meal in a long while. Oh and can’t begin to tell you how much our drinks complimented the food. Will return as soon as possible.

We really wanted to try the Dine out Menu so made reservation for the available offer: lunch. Upon arrival we were told by the host that they were no longer offering the DO Special; we insist and finally a manager gave the OK. Our waiter Tammy was the best, friendly and hospitable. We ordered the lobster rolls: delish. The second plate was the Wagyu Flat iron with broccolini. Well seasoned but the meat was rough not shat you expect from a Wagyu meat or a fine restaurant. Dessert was cheesecake.

We used to love to come to this restaurant having a place locally was always on the list when we came to town.
Now its loud, the food is really salty, much higher prices in all respects and the bathroom outside of the restaurant that is shared and is a total mess, not clean in any way. As well as loud and feels unsafe too many people in an out and around not appropriate for a high priced steak restaurant.
We will not return in either in or out of season.
We never recommend.

Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Chopped salad especially tasty with a great dressing. The only thing I feel I have to mention is what I decided to order for myself. We decided to order the add on half main lobster for my dinner as I don’t eat that much protein. It was the smallest thing I had ever seen for $26. The clarified butter cup was larger than the lobster, which by the way was not a “half lobster”it was a half of a teeny tail and one teeny claw, nothing else….I literally had 2 bites and I was done. The tail was sweet but the leg was not, needless to say it was disappointing. Luckily, I ate a lot of the yummy chopped salad and the broccolini side we had ordered. Dessert however was excellent, as we had the lava cake as recommended by our seasoned waiter, whose name escapes me at this moment. They also were kind enough to bring my husband a red velvet birthday cupcake which was a nice touch. All in all, a great evening, as as we have been there several times, we will definitely be back again.

Celebrated booking my daughters wedding at the W! (although I realize we should have noted that on the reservation maybe we would’ve gotten a complimentary dessert or something 😂) Our waitress was excellent and the food was amazing! Looking forward to dining there again when the groom to be comes in town!
