Always a pleasure to dine here. Food is always amazing

The food was amazing. The service was great. We sat inside because it was hot outside but the view was still great. The seats are a bit small and uncomfortable but overall you are a five star gem

Delicious food and great service from Maria! Nice place to celebrate!

Initially service was very slow. Once we were able to get our wait staff attention, She was attentive. It was very noisy. The table next to us were loud, obnoxious, and filthy mouths with crude racial, almost pedophile like comments. Food was excellent.

Very disappointed in the quality of the 40 day aged steak NY strip was very tough was cooked too fast.

We stayed at the W for our 25th wedding anniversary. Decided on steak 954 for dinner. The food was excellent had the aged NY strip and the Cheese steak. The staff was very good and attentive. The food is pricy but for a special occasion why not. They gave us a special dessert for our anniversary. The only negative was the noise. It was very noisy a large party was seated in the restaurant. They did there best to find us a quiet spot. Could have sat outside but it was a little too warm.

Most expensive place we ate at on vacation and it the food was less then desirable for the price. I had the New York strip and it was so salty! We also had the scalloped potatoes and salty as well. The best part was the air popped bread and our waitress Lexi was great other than that would have no desire to go back.

A great evening with friendly and attentive staff. Very good food . A little dark on inside.

Best steak I have had in the area by far! The pricing could be better, but it was still worth it.

Absolutely flawless, serivice was amazing and have been many times but this time was extra special

The restaurant has a nice view of the ocean from the patio and window tables. Sophisticated atmosphere, although lighting at the booths could be a bit better. The noise level was fine, but we were there on a Sunday and imagine the noise level on more crowded evenings would be very loud - high ceilings with lots of wood, stone and glass, and fairly loud music. Beautiful aquarium wall filled with jellyfish is very relaxing. Our server Yvonne was outstanding and busing was also very good - dishes arrived at appropriate times, water glasses refilled, plates cleared, wine poured etc. Food was excellent, especially ceviche and lamb chops. Prices however, were quite high, although this is often the case in hotel based restaurants. Because the food and service were excellent however, one doesn't mind paying high prices as long as expectations are met.

Instead of an enjoyable dinning experience, this turned out to be an uncomfortable one. The acoustics were so bad that we had to shout at each other to speak to one another or had to lean over the table. As noted, the service was outstanding compared to most restaurants. Someone was watching us practically every minute making sure if we needed a drink refill, it was taken care of. The food was brought promptly when it was ready and take homes were provided promptly. We did not have to wait long to pay the final bill which was explained informatively by the server. He was outstanding and hope our gratuity let him know we realized that. HOWEVER, the entrees and sides delivered were just warm. This included my steak that was supposed to be a 20 ounce New York Strip prime aged a long time. It looked more like a 14 ounce and the taste was flat. I have had much better for a cheaper price. The best I eaten were at Brio and Alexanders. We could have sent the food back but did not want to wait another 45 minutes to a half an hour. The restaurant was very busy. Thus, our opinion is likely a minority one. None the less, WE WILL NOT RETURN AGAIN OR RECOMMEND "STEAK 954" to anyone.

We had annoying load table to the right and a couple arguing and swearing to the left.

All around great time.

For the price small portions. We had halibut and branzino. Side of mashed potato also very small. Mozzarella salad small.
by Ooniebean on September 26, 2018
Very nice beachside steakhouse. We were lucky enough to be seated in front of the jellyfish tank which was a treat for our out of town guests. The food was top notch and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes a good steak.
by MatthewM on September 26, 2018
Our server DJ was excellent!!! He was attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly. Food was superb, atmosphere very cool with a huge jelly fish tank! Pricey but worth it!
by OpenTable Diner on September 26, 2018
Excellent food. Tremendous service.
by BeckyL on September 23, 2018
Beautiful oceanfront view on the first level of the gorgeous W hotel. Our server was kind and helpful. Our food was delicious, I ordered the tuna tar tar and the dry aged porterhouse. Our drinks were equally as good. The food came out quick and the floor staff was very attentive. I celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday- we couldn’t have chosen a better spot! Would recommend this spot to the queen!
by JaimeeL on September 22, 2018
The food was horrible. The steaks were too salty, my friends steak was raw and they tried recooking it twice. It was a disaster. The serve was attentive a lovely but the food was not worth anything and I live down here and will NEVER go there again. I
by JocelynM on September 22, 2018
Service was exceptionally and the food delicious. We had oysters, hamachi shared the 22oz dry rubbed my strip (which they cut for us) creamed spinach and potatoes. Love them!
by IrisZ on September 22, 2018
Unfortunately, we never received our main entrees..our waiter never came by the table to aplogize. We left the restaurant after 2 hours there without having dinner. Thank God they delivered slider apetizers so that my toddler could eat something. The Manager finally came to the table and while didnt charge us could mt offer an explanation! Too bad as other restaurants of this brand are so on point with service like Komoto in Bal Harbour.

Exception Dining Experience! We begin with a toast of Prosecco, had a wonderful seafood platter for two, an exquisite American Wagyu filet mignon, accompanied by a lovely French, Louis Jadot cabernet sauvignon. The service provided by our waitress, Heather, was spot-on professional but very congenial. The atmosphere was very romantic on the front patio with a moonlit view of the coast. Can't paint a more perfect picture.

The food was delicious. Amazing steak right on the beach-
by OpenTable Diner on September 19, 2018
Went here on the night of my proposal, and it couldn’t have gone better! They were able to accommodate my request (made in advance) for a particular table and away from other guests so we could have a nice environment for when I got down on one knee! In addition, the food was perfect as usual. Thank you!
by BernieA on September 18, 2018
Really enjoyed the filet mignon. It was exquisite. Went there under Crave FTL promotion getting a 3-course meal for $45. Many other Crave FTL restaurants offer the same 3-course meal for $35 (e.g., Ruth's Chris Steakhouse & Morton the Steakhouse also offer 3-course 6 oz filet mignon meals for $45)
by LitagD on September 16, 2018
We went for our anniversary and they have us free mimosas to toast to. Also, I am a vegan and they created a dish just for me. Very accommodating and a great view!
by OpenTable Diner on September 15, 2018
The restaurant it's beautiful! We eat outside by the ocean which was amazing! Our waiter was super annoying! He was in a hurry to get rid of us so we kept interrupting us to rush us off. For cost was okay, could have been better.
by HannahB on September 15, 2018
This place is always outstanding. Unfortunately last time we went there for us my steak came out called. They bought me another one very quickly but it was very rare. So I ended up eating just the outside and leaving more than 70% of my steak on the table since everybody else was done eating. Otherwise the drinks were excellent service was excellent as usual
by OpenTable Diner on September 15, 2018
Our server, Michael, was great. So was the whole staff, beginning at reception, champagne and a yummy cupcake on the house for our anniversary. The rib-eye was perfect, the truffle potatoes au gratin superb. We will be back.
by Dary on September 13, 2018
We tried the restaurant with Crave GFL, not sure if that was the reason but the portions were too small for all plates from the entree to the desert. I have tried other restaurants also with Crave menu and the portions were normal. Although the food was very good, the small portions toguether with the prices it was made our experience not excellent. I still recommend this place for someone with a small appetite and for a special occasion.

Love the atmosphere !
by JDTYBURSKI on September 8, 2018
Super delicious and fantastic as always Sorry they took the Bacon wrapped Scallops appetizer off the menu Steak 954 has been on the A List for years
by OpenTable Diner on September 8, 2018
Great ambiance, jellyfish aquarium is stunning. Food and service exceptional. If you like the best beef this is the place for you.
by OpenTable Diner on September 6, 2018
Food was just average, nothing out of this world. Steak was small in size and not a lot of flavor. Eve the asparagus were just okay. Bread was the highlight of the dinner.
by BrittaniW on September 5, 2018
My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner for his birthday. We were blown away with the attention to detail, phenomenal service and excellent food. My husband has never had better steak in his life he said! There are nice views being so close to the water, extensive wine list, incredible food and quality ingredients. I most definitely recommend this restaurant!
by Mamaj on September 3, 2018
Service was excellent! We ordered and shred the bone in rib eye and it was cooked to perfection.
by SteveB on September 3, 2018
Steak 954 is still my favorite go to place for special occasions. The food is all excellent!
by OpenTable Diner on September 2, 2018
This is my 3rd consecutive review, alongside a 3rd consecutive visit. Needless to say, we like this place a lot (see my previous reviews). In staying true to my previous thoughts on service making a BIG difference in the overall experience, unfortunately tonight’s server, Alexandra really missed the mark. Our server rushed through the night, spent no time in describing any of the items we ordered, carelessly poured wine in our glass, and prematurely picked up a plate we were still working on. Lastly, there were a few times where she walked away as she was talking about one of our entrees and dessert. Otherwise, the cheesesteak was ok. Too much bread really underplays the wagyu in between. Scallops were great, but portion could have been a bit more - Don’t think a 3rd piece of scallop is too much to ask. The place is lively as usual and we’ll definitely be coming back, however I think we’ll stick with the steaks and maybe request for Stephanie as our server, if she’s available.

Every time my wife and I attend The W we leave more than satisfied.

We had another great dinner at Steak 954 to celebrate my birthday. The service was wonderful and we really enjoyed the food.

Steak 954 has been our favorite steakhouse for the past 10 years, traveled the world and till this day no other steakhouse has compared!!! A

We’ve eaten here several times a year for the last several years. This visit was the most disappointing experience we’ve ever had. Our steaks were not cooked to proper requested temperature. My husband ordered rare and got medium rare. I ordered medium rare and got rare. Which has never happened. The steaks were taken back and returned to us by the manager. The manager did not say one word to us. Not one single apology. The waiter then proceeded to tell my husband that the Chef said to cut near the bone to check the temp??? Umm, the prior steak was so clearly not rare and over cooked all the way through. It was almost like the chef was telling him he was wrong about the temp. We know the difference between medium rare & rare. We also requested truffle butter as we do every time we eat there. The waiter returned and said the chef said he doesn’t have any. In times past they make it for us without there ever being a complaint or any question what so ever. Also, sadly, the steaks were not even that good. Which also has never happened. It’s a shame because we normally love our food and Steak 954 has been our go to for a great steak & where we celebrate our anniversary every year. After this experience we may not be back.

Just as the previous night’s dinner, brunch was fantastic! Service was a little slower, although understandable with what seemed like a higher volume of patrons versus servers who worked the previous night’s shift. Our server, Stephanie was great as usual, and again added to the wonderful experience. Short Rib Benedict is a must! The Chorizo omelette is one unique take on omelette that should be tried at least once. Home made jam was awesome and the Dulce de Leche French Toast is now our favorite French Toast!
by OpenTable Diner on September 1, 2018
Best steak we’ve had to date! Best medium temp cooking of meat we’ve seen yet. Our server, Stephanie was amazing. Her attention to detail and attentiveness to the guest is something that other servers should take note of - Great Service makes a HUGE difference! From the Aioli Cauliflower to the pairing of the drinks, it made for a very memorable experience! We were more than pleased and are already eagerly anticipating a return.
by StuartH on September 1, 2018
954 is inside the W on the beach so feels very casual. The steak was excellent and there is a good wine list but overall the ambience is very low key (like the W in general) and I really don’t like the decor. And when you’re spending $300 for two (including tip) you expect more.
by Papi on September 1, 2018
Great service, food and ambiance. Definitely worthwhile.
