Everyone was amazing. They greeted us and congratulated us on our anniversary. We got complimentary champagne and a cupcake at the end of our dinner. Excellent service. Will be back.

Our waitress Stephanie is excellent. We alway go to Steak 954 for our birthday and anniversary and food always good. But tonight Stephanie made our dinner experience even more spectacular. She is so knowledgeable about the menu. If she didn’t recommend, I will order my usual beef short ribs. But I tried the miso black cod tonight and that is the best piece of fish I have ever eaten. And that red velvet cup cake they gave us for our anniversary are so pretty and delicious. We will for sure come back again.

Lots of problems at this expensive steakhouse. Hard to believe it's the same owners as Le Coucou in New York. It took us 10 minutes to be seated despite being greeted quickly and there being only one other party in the restaurant at 5:30 pm. We were told to wait by the jellyfish tank and someone would seat us and then promptly forgotten about. Once we were seated our server greeted us promptly. He was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and never there when we needed him. We were quickly served a cheese popover with a disc of wonderful soft butter topped with sea salt. The popover was the best bread course I've ever had in a restaurant. Unfortunately it was more or less downhill from there. Our scallop appetizer was beautifully seared but wasn't warm when it arrived at the table. The bacon vinaigrette sauce was tasty but ill-suited for the delicate protein. The crab cake appetizer was bready and worthy of a cruise ship. It was slathered with green apple slices in a mayonnaise sauce to presumably disguise the lack of crab flavor. The bone-in New York strip was perfectly cooked, tender, and well-seasoned with salt. (Which is is a good thing because there was no salt or pepper at the table.) However, it lacked the caramelized sear I expected of an oven billed as "1700 degrees." Still: great steak. The butter-poached lobster was served out of the shell on a splendid lemon risotto. Unfortunately, while the claws were tender the large lobster tail was tough and stringy. We would have sent it back if the waiter had appeared but he was MIA. We ordered four sides, more than we needed, to try: the stuffed hash browns, a huge disc of hash browns encases around more potato. Perfectly seasoned. But they forgot the salt altogether on the other three sides which ruined them: bland creamed spinach, bland macaroni and cheese, and oddly flavored mixed mushrooms and onions. No one was around to ask for salt so we left them untouched.

The food was outstanding - LOVED the Yorkshire Pudding as bread rolls!
The steaks were very good quality and perfectly prepared. Wine list had lots of options for all tastes and budgets. Staff were very knowledgeable about wines, food, specials etc.
Only complaint? Far too loud - very difficult to have a conversation.

A pleasant atmosphere, scenic beachfront. Outdoor seating in well covered from the sun and wind, so can be enjoyed. Chef has considerable skill in preparation and execution using quality ingredients. Will return and recommend.

Steak 954 was recommended as one of the, if not the, best steakhouse in Ft. Lauderdale. It lived up to the hype. The service, ambiance, drinks and food were excellent. A bit overpriced, but certainly not a meal that will disappoint.

The decor is way better than the food. Once there gets to be alot of people in the place, it's gets very loud. Waiter disappeared for about 20 minutes and had to get up to get my own drink from someone else. Always wanted to try this place but was very disappointed. Won't be going back and don't recommend it.

In addition to rather expensive but high quality menu, on the night we were there the chef had a special of bone in fillet. Ordered medium rare it was the most tender steak I have ever eaten. Although a bone in rib eye is larger and more flavorful, if you ever get a chance to try a bone in fillet, do it. The restaurant is in the W hotel facing the ocean on A1A in Ft Lauderdale. Valet parking of $15.00 is free when validated by the restaurant.

Our waiter took the time to give an overview of each steak, which was very helpful given the numerous options. To say the steaks were amazing would be a huge understatement. Probably the best meal we've had in a VERY long time. Definitely lived up to the hype.

There was a time when this place was a top 5 favorite restaurant for me. Sadly, they’ve changed the menu and not for the better. Remember the old lobster ceviche w coconut? It’s gone. As am I for a few months to see if they right the ship.
