Stephen's on State originally opened their doors in June of 2003 under the name Stephen's Prime. Primarily a steak house, the restaurant operated for three years before the owners felt a change was necessary. They wanted to create a more casual setting and in August 2008 renovations began. The entire face of the restaurant was demolished and replaced with sliding french doors that open out to the street. Opening under the name Stephen's on State, the restaurant now offers outside cafe dining in addition to the ala carte lunch and dinner menu. Responding to the high volume of bar business, Stephen's once again renovated in August of 2008 and expanded into the adjacent building doubling the bar capacity and adding a new dance floor. With live entertainment Monday through Saturday, many people are coming to Stephen's to enjoy a full dining experience, dance, or maybe simply to enjoy an appetizer and cocktail from their extensive martini and wine list while listening to music.

I came here because I had a Groupon. I was pleasantly surprised the food was absolutely delicious and the service was good as well. I would come back again at full price.

The food there is always good. I wasn't feeling the chicken parmesan today, not a flavorful, my lava cake was room temperature and the ice cream had melted but everything else was really good.

Other than a great atmosphere, I would not recommend going to Stephens. I decided to give them a try after seeing a Groupon deal, but now I understand why they had it. We sat all the way in the back, which was nice to talk since up front there was a band playing. We saw our waiter 3x the entire night and our food took about an hour to come to us (mind you the table next to us sat after, received apps and their meal prior to us. To end it all, my meal was barely warm. I was so hungry I ate it as is. Mayyybbee I will give them another chance.

One of our favorite special occasion/nice date night spots. Consistent with a menu that offers a little of everything. No too formal but nicer than the standard fare.

Nothing was memorable or noteworthy. The food was fine -- and delivered quickly -- but that's about it. The service was so-so, although they never came back to fill our water glasses. Seems a bit overpriced for the quality you receive.

The food was excellent however the service was very poor. The waiter was nonexistent. I am deciding if I will dine here again. I may again, only because the food was wonderful, however the service was extremely poor.

First time to this outstanding Media restaurant and not disappointed. If presentation is valued at 50%, the other 50% came rather easily. Good venue for special occasions, business meetings.

The only downside is having a boisterous group/individual at the bar. Even though the dining room is separated by a wall, excessive noise reaches into the dining room. Maybe the bartender
could have a couple of muzzles handy.

Food and service were very good. It was so noisy, though, that it was very difficult to have a conversation or even enjoy the ambiance - even at an early reservations (6:30 pm). The noise level was very high even before the live entertainment started. Tables were very close together and were crowded into a small space.

The food and service was great. Could have done a lot better without an overly loud singer guitar player. Room has nothing on the walls to absorb the sound.

We felt the food had room for improvement steak was very grisslly
where we were seated we were in the way of patrons & servers
never was asked if we needed refills on water/ beer/iced tea

My steak was very good. The lobster bisque, which was a special, was fishy. The blue cheese dressing on the wedge was runny and not enough blue cheese. One empty drink, the left over salad and the soup sat on our table for a very long time. In fact the table was never cleared before our entries came to the table. The waiter pushed aside the dirty plates and empty drink to put our meals down. Then he cleared the dirty dishes. Not very classy or professional for the prices they charge! This was suppose to be our Valentine's Day dinner out.

Great service, lovely people sitting near us for Valentine's Day. We got the Valentine's special which was $75 & came with soup/salad, shrimp cocktail, filet, lobster tail and champagne; well worth it. Definitely going back other food items-the Seafood Alfredo next time!!!

We’ve been there a few times and this was quickly becoming one of our favorite spots. Tonight, Valentine’s Day we went there and hit a few servicing problems. First, we weren’t told of any specials, then all the women customers were given a single rose except my wife, I had to request one, everyone around us received a basket of bread, we had to request 2x. It was very odd that the service to the other patrons was spot on, but we were ignored. The food was good, but service was very lacking.
