We very much enjoyed our meals and can't wait to go back and try other options from their menu. And don't forget to try the desserts. They were also a winner.

We went to Stephens on a Wednesday evening for our Anniversary. We had the dining room all to ourselves! The food was delicious and the servers was friendly and efficient. We started with Shrimp Lejon which was cooked perfectly! I had Seafood Bucatini and he had Filet Mignon. Both were amazing! We ended with Chocolate Lava Cake to share. We will definitely be back in the near future.

Steak was cooked perfectly. Everything else was a bit blan in flavor. For the price, I expected more in quality. I have had better food at Texas Roadhouse for much cheaper. It took an hour to get our meals. Not terrible but not worth what they are charging. I would not go back again.

Excellent service! Every staff member that came or served at our table was wonderful right from the door. I’ve been at Stephen’s several times and have enjoyed their food and drink. This time, not so much. I liked the Friday night vibes with the DJ so maybe I will return again for music and drinks. The great service alone makes me want to try again.

Food, drinks & service were excellent! The only reason I didn’t give ambiance 5 stars was because the booth was a little snug for 4 people. Everything else was great!

Food was very good. My husbands strip steak was under seasoned. He had to add salt with every bite. The gorgonzola cheese topping was over powering and needed to be scraped off the steak. My Stephen’s chicken was delicious and I totally enjoyed the meal.
The restaurant could be so much better with the following changes:
Cloth tablecloths for evening dining. Our table was sticky and the veneer was chipped
The waitress should have hair secured back and wear a mask. The dress code for wait staff could definitely improve. It’s way too casual. Long black or white aprons would be an improvement.
The hostess was wearing a sweatshirt and sneakers.
The manager was wearing a suit and looked great.

A restaurant that is charging $42 to $62 for a steak needs to present itself better. Time for a remake!

How does this place have so many stars??? Food was overpriced and mediocre. Stuffed chicken wasn’t stuffed with anything, just had cheese, peppers and sausage on the top, pasta bolognese didn’t resemble any bolognese I’ve ever had, and the bar was super loud with people whistling (??). Total disappointment.

Everything was good. The problem is that I had a Groupon where the restaurant overcharged me. The certificate said $40 worth of fine dining. 9also valid on take out w/minimum $60). They made me purchase additional food to get to $60 even though I did not take out. The waitress was very apologetic but she was told that was the policy.
I would recommend for everything with the exception of their business practice when it comes to Groupons.

We have been to the restaurant many times. Unfortunately this time the food is a disappointment. I ordered the stuffed chicken which is simply a piece of fried chicken breast with a few pieces of sausage, some roasted red peppers, and melted cheese sitting on top of a pile of meshed potatoes. Not to mention that the food was just lukewarm when served. On the other hand, kudos to Ashley, our waitress. Even though she seemed exhausted, she put forth her best to take care of us.

Friends get together on tuesday night. The service was outstanding, the food was great and atmosphere really good. Of the meals the exceptional ones were apps shrimp lejon, raw oysters, crab bisque. The main courses that were outstanding that were on menu were Scottish Salmon, Chicken Parm with veggies in place of pasta, ribeye steak, crab cakes and the special of the night surf/turf, scallop/shrimp were all superior. We all ate well so no dessert was ordered. One Caveat is we arrived around 5:15 and the background noise was good but by 7:00 as we left it was hindering conversation. So if going as group to talk I would reserve early or after 9:00. Can't wait to return.

Took my girlfriend here to use our Groupon for 100 dollars. We had a lovely meal. We shared a bunch of things for our dinner. First was French Onion Soup. Was quite good. The Caesar salad they split in half and was chilled and delicious. Our entrees were the Diver Scallops over risotto and the Short Rib Bolognaise over pasta. Both were hearty, piping hot and delicious.
We needed an extra dessert to get to the amount we purchased on the Groupon and the waitress got us another dessert to take home as we were stuffed. We had the chocolate lava cake and brought home tira misu.

Went for my birthday. They sat us in a dark corner near a huge loud party with kids crying. My steak was over cooked. So I had to watch my family eat while I waited for my food. I received nothing for my birthday or the inconvenience.

Replace the rock music with softer sounds like Sinatra or Bennett. It would make for a much better dining experience.
