    Main issues were from a service perspective. Obviously used Open Table for the reservation. Received confirmation email. Got to restaurant but hostess did not have our reservation. Took about 10-15 minutes to finally be seated. Then sat for 10-15 minutes before anyone came to table to serve. After those issues, service was good and food was good. Gave 3 stars due to the initial seating serving issues.

    We had dinner with an old friend, everything was perfect, starting with Krystal our server, she is superb, my husband and I always request to sit in her section. Our meals were delicious, the whole night was so great. We dine here often and we’re already looking forward to our next visit.

    Three of us went for dinner before the theater. We were greeted nicely, seated right away and everything was brought in a timely manner. The food was very good; my daughter ate 3/4 chicken tenders and had the chocolate lava cake dessert, which she loved. The waitress was accommodating and brought the dessert without the ice cream on top (allergies). Appreciated because not all restaurants will do that (have been told no elsewhere-which is fine but glad my daughter got to enjoy!) The Scottish salmon was delicious. Would recommend. Little dark to see in the restaurant but otherwise, okay atmosphere.

    Food was terrible and so was the service. For starters, the manhattan clam chowder was sweet. The steak had no flavor and had some type of brown sauce on it. The salad was drenched in dressing.

    We were seated immediately. Our server was very attentive. Prime rib egg rolls, salad & soups were delicious & came out promptly. Our bottle of wine was nicely chilled. Our steak entrees & crabcakes were perfect. Dessert for $9 each were the best. Will definitely return to Stephen’s.

    New Year’s Eve diner. Food was good but we felt the mash potatoes tasted more like powdered than fresh. Blue cheese dressing on wedge salad was more sour than average dressing ( more watered down than usual & thought maybe there was sour cream added to it? Server was wonderful and attentive. All staff were very pleasant!

    TLDR: RUN, do not walk away from this place! Manager took a picture of my steak and told me it was cooked fine. I am the customer and if my $54 steak is not cooked to my satisfaction then they need to re-cook it! Possibly the worst meal and service I have had in the last several years. 1. Prior to ordering a steak, asked for all pink. Waitress (when she finally showed up) said medium is all pink. 2. Steak came, I cut it down the middle and it was grey (overcooked, definitely no pink). My girlfriend nearly finished her meal before the waitress ever came back to ask if the food was ok. 3. I purposely did not take a bite of the steak after I cut it - did not want to be accused of eating the steak and wanting to send it back. 4. Waitress finally comes back and says she needs her manager to take the steak back. 5. Manager comes to the table, takes the steak and walks away. Then comes back 2 minutes later with a picture of a steak on his phone - and asks if this was my steak. The photo showed a steak that was medium, all pink inside. I said No, my steak was gray. He then says this is a photo of my steak. I sent it back and asked for another steak - which was so-so. Definitely NOT a good steak restaurant 6. Then they charged me an auto-gratutity of 20% because they knew I was going to leave a terrible tip. 7. "F" this place - would never eat here again

    Honestly, a little disappointed in Stephen’s this time. I got the 10oz steak and only ate half of it and was offered by a server to box it up for me and it ended up being thrown out. Our waiter was very apologetic and gave us a dessert on the house. Unfortunately, the $8-9 dessert doesn’t make up for half of my $52 steak.

The waitress we had was very helpful for recommendations and checked on us often. The pasta bolognese highly recommended! Everything was very good and I would love to come back here again!

    Get the steak. It's pricey but so worth it. The NY strip was one of the best ones I have ever had. The chocolate lava cake with chocolate ice cream was also really good. Service was great and there was some live music which did make it a bit noisy but easily tolerable

    First of all, the food was phenomenal and the cocktails strong. We were there on a weeknight so it was understandably quiet in the restaurant area. However, there was a group of loud drunk folks at the bar. There was no music playing, so the two things combined kind of ruined the ambiance. The staff was nice enough, but had absolutely no energy at all... understandable for late dinner time on a weeknight. Food was absolutely worth the price, but altogether the experience didn't live up to our expectations for a pricey steakhouse. Maybe on a busier night it would be better.

    It was a Tuesday Night so the normal loud background noise was much lower so made it nice for a group of friends dinner to be able to hold quiet conversions. The server Jen was excellent, very friendly, helpful explaining the nightly specials and prompt. There were 4 meals that members of our group highlighted, the filet mignon, 18oz ribeye, scottish salmon and stuffed chicken. Also highlighted were the Red Crab soup and steak eggrolls. We were all so stuffed by end of meal no dessert was attempted. Would gladly recommend and happily return soon.

    It was loud, dated. The staff and atmosphere didn’t reflect the menu prices. They have fine dining prices in a bar setting. The waitress asked how our meals were after we were almost done. I wouldn’t recommend or go back.

    We had a terrible dinner here. I had the scallops and spinach risotto. the scallops had no taste to them and rubbery and the risotto was tasteless and sauce looked like glue. My husband had the lobster ravioli that had a white cream sauce on it with no taste. Neither one of us could finish the meal. The only good thing we had was the wedge salad and drinks. The price is way to high for the quality of food. Spent $150 on a crappy dinner for 2 and left there hungry because the food was so bad. Don't waste your money on this place.

    My husband had the Thanksgiving special menu, which he thoroughly enjoyed. He's a light eater and surprised himself by cleaning his plate. I had crab stuffed grilled salmon with risotto and steamed asparagus. My food was delicious and the asparagus was very tender without being mushy.

    We had date night at Stephens on State in Media, and it was fantastic! Nice laid back atmosphere, staff were friendly and welcoming. Our server Kiley was awesome. Everything about our meal was on point. The mixed drinks were very nice, our appetizer, the shrimp and crab ceviche was wonderful - full of nice sized chunks of both shrimp and crab. We ordered the 14 oz New York Strip Steak, Ribeye Special, and short rib mac & cheese. Our entrees were absolutely delicious; seasoned well and the steaks cooked to a perfect medium rare. For dessert, the creme brulee and tiramisu toped the evening off nicely. Just an outstanding evening all around, and we would definitely dine here again. Well done!

    Stephen’s on State needs to make up its mind about what kind of restaurant it is. It’s basically a bar with an incredibly loud DJ and a few neglected restaurant tables on the side. The food was average at best and the service was lacking. It feels like Stephen’s just wants to be a bar but is stuck with its bad restaurant. It didn’t help that the dress code is listed as “smart casual” misleading one into believing the atmosphere is nicer. Meanwhile everyone inside is dressed poorly, wearing baseball caps and jerseys while the bar is blasting sports games, and worst of all, multiple tables with people loudly and drunkenly yelling about politics. Needless to say we will never be returning.

    My last steaks at Stephen's have not been good. The cut of meat was cooked correctly but the meat wasn't tender as it should have been. I can cook a good steak at home for $10.00. When I'm purchasing a $50 steak, I want it to be good. Service was good as the place was empty.
