    My reservation was for 6:45pm. My food did not come out 8:15 pm. We waited long and waitress explained the kitchen was backed up. No manager came out to address issue. I was excited to try the restaurant. However, truly dissatisfied and disappointed of the lack of service.

    Our appetizers were tasty! My chicken parm was not seasoned and my husband's NY strip was not medium well done as request but okay in taste. The overall ambience was extremely dated and had an old smell that was strong. I will more than likely will not be back.

    Steaks were very good and short rib macaroni to die for. A little noisy as we were sat in bar area but nice night with front of restaurant open.

    Celebrated a birthday and it was outstanding! We started with calamari, oysters and eggs rolls, everything was delicious! Entrees were lobster ravioli, salmon, scallops, crab cakes and veal marsala, all were exceptional. Our server was attentive and friendly. Perfect place to enjoy an evening out with great food and drinks.

    Yesterday was a beautiful day. I was excited about having a meal at Stephens. The waitress took exceptionally long to come to us to take our order. A table that seated after us had bread twice and we didn’t receive no orders of bread. Once we mentioned this to the waitress she brought our bread out to us. Our food followed directly after receiving the bread. The food which is normally delicious was pretty bad yesterday. The lobster was over cooked. I order lamb and got steak, I still kept the steak, but it was extremely tough. After that negative experience I still will give it another try, because my previous experience was great.

    Monday nights are quiet around dinner, but Quizzo starts at 8pm. We made sure to finish our meals before that started.

    This was our second visit to Stephen’s on State for our anniversary. Our first visit last year exceeded our expectations so we decided to try them again. I had the special: grilled ribeye (medium rare) with scallops wrapped in bacon and my wife had the Scottish salmon. Both entrees were excellent. I also had the French onion soup and she had the State salad. For dessert, I had the warm apple tart and she had the chocolate lava cake. It was all excellent and the server was very upbeat which made for a fun environment for dinner. We had a six o’clock reservation and were promptly seated and greeted by the server. The noise level was low to moderate during our dinner, but the level did start to get uncomfortable near the end of our meal. It didn’t help that a guest at the table next to us was trying to communicate with their friend that was at the far end of the room. At least we were at the end of our visit so we didn’t have to endure the loud talking for very long. All in all, the experience was excellent.

    Food and service was excellent. Was not very pleased to where we sat we did have a reservation but we were dead center in the walkway of people coming and going and it was in very close proximity so I felt like we were in the way the table should not be where it is in my opinion. Otherwise Staff was great food was unbelievable good service was good definitely would go back but I would suggest asking for a different table.

    The service took forever since there looked to be only two waitresses on a Friday night. The food was blah. The mashed potatoes with the Chicken Stephen were definitely from a box. The table was sticky. Big disappointment!

    Long waiting time although unusual. I frequent this spot and always enjoy their food and beverages. 20 mins went by without being offered a drink or starters. It was my fiancés birthday so the experience was less favorable. The manager said that he would make things right but we were never offered anything outside of an apology.

    The food served was covered in sauces. You couldn't taste the natural flavor of the dish. It was buried in sauce to mask the lack of taste. FYI - mussels should be white or red. Not buried in mushroom, bacon and some kind of brown sauce. YUCK!!!

    Food was good but our server had a very poor attitude. My husband and I both work in the service industry so we know how crazy things can get but there was no need for her poor attitude. From the very start she was acting like we were inconveniencing her. We were extra polite, thanking her for everything, but she wanted no parts. The restaurant was nearly empty so she wasn’t even busy. Im not usually someone to complain but her attitude was unbelievable, like something out of a movie. We also still tipped over 20% because we aren’t jerks. We won’t be going back there.

    Drinks were great. Baked clams great but sandy. Shrimp lejon overcooked and dried out. Ordered 2 18 oz. ribeye steaks- one with bone, one without. Chewy, impossible to cut, really tasteless and expensive! Honestly, steaks sucked and I regret not sending them back. These were not prime steaks at $49 each. Will not eat here again, just martinis.

    We had a party of six on Saturday night. We thought we were going to have a round table toward the front of the restaurant. Instead, we were seated in a small room in the back. The noise level was very high, and it was difficult to hear people in our party. However, the food was excellent. My wife and I had the Salmon dish with risotto, and it was the best that we've ever had. Everyone in our group raved about their food selections.
