The filet was wonderful. The crab was out of this world. Overall an excellent choice for a nice evening meal

Enjoyed our 22nd Anniversary on the patio overlooking the beach. Having dined here many times we were so thankful for the wonderful service and extra special treatment we were given... thank you for making our special day so wonderful!

Our waiter, Robert, was very enthusiastic and knew the menu well. The food was outstanding and prepared perfectly. I will definitely come back when back in Ft. Lauderdale.

It was excellent. A little noisy for a date. Sat next to a big loud family

Awful experience, from the moment we got there! Didn’t meet The W standards was very disappointed!

Must second trip for Sunday Brunch. The menu is varied and reasonable. The Vanilla French Toast is very good. Must have lots of calories. A large portion for $16. The only meal you need for the day. Two of us really each enjoyed the French Toast. A third member of our group had the egg white omelet and he pronounced it very good. He added the turkey sausage to the dish. My wife had the mixed chopped salad with four grilled shrimp. Two much dressing on the salad (her fault, she should have asked for it on the side) and even with the four shrimp she felt $21 was too much for what she received.

My husband and I had a great time. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Stephanie provided warm and attentive service. They made my anniversary very special!

Food was so good. Came out in a decent amount of time. Our server was very nice and attentive. I’d for sure come back!

Albeit pricy, the steak was cooked to perfection. The wine list is limited for moderately priced wines. Their version of the cheesecake dessert was out of this world.
by JennyW on April 12, 2018
Best steak we have ever had! A Fort Lauderdale must!
by OpenTable Diner on April 12, 2018
Food was delicious and our server Stephanie was fantastic. Best meal of our trip!

Definitely expensive but expected for a steak house. Food and service was exceptional.
by Thomas on April 10, 2018
Very good food and service. For a party of four, we shared the 32 oz. prime rib, along with a salad and three sides. It was just about right portion wise. The overall price was slightly high, but the food was very good. Unfortunately, we were all freezing as the A/C was cranking and we needed to eat and get out quickly, as a result.

Went for anniversary dinner - atmosphere of restaurant was very nice and fairly quiet. Food was very good!
by OpenTable Diner on April 07, 2018
One of the best steak in south Florida.
by OpenTable Diner on April 06, 2018
The restaurant itself is nice and accommodating but on the day in question after having a hair in my food, I all but lost any type need to provide anything more than a 1 star. A little bit of attention to detail probably would have prevented this. Management was accommodating and did comp my portion of the meal that I was able to eat.
by Cowpant on April 05, 2018
Was a little concerned when I saw the prices, but was following lead of recommendations and reviews I read online. I must say it was one of the best meals I have had and well worth it. Service was outstanding and view of ocean from our table added to evening. We highly recommend the place.

Always a good experience. Its a steakhouse, but better. This was our second time and just as good as the first.
by OpenTable Diner on April 04, 2018
Food and service amazing! Can’t wait to go back when we are in town next! Key lime baked Alaska - AMAZING!!!
by OpenTable Diner on April 02, 2018
Amazing experience! Our waiter was top notch. I had the wagyu skirt steak and out was the best I have ever tasted!
by PeterK on April 02, 2018
Their American wagyu filet was excellent and cooked to perfection. My wife had the Colorado lamb chop and they were the best she has tasted. Marty our server was very personable and knew the menu very well, answering all our questions, and catering to our evey need. Expensive meal, but well worth the price!
by LauraC on April 01, 2018
Food and service are great...the American Waygu Filet is Outstanding!

I made a reservation a month in advance for Easter dinner since we were staying at the W. When we checked in with the hostess she informed us it would be AT LEAST a 45 minute wait for outside which I requested when I made the reservation. We were seated in a room with no views, no ambiance, and near a large party with several screaming toddlers & babies. We could see them seating people outside that were looking at menus and clearly did not have a reservation. It was very dark inside, the prices were very high which I was aware of but the whole experience was just ruined for me. The food was good not worth the price with no views, no ambiance, screaming children at 8 at night. Overall disappointing.

Great service, great food
by Sheila on March 31, 2018
Great meal. Pretty pricey but good food. Hostess unfriendly but everyone else very good.
by OpenTable Diner on March 31, 2018
Food was fantastic and service superb. Highly recommend for a date night or special occasion.

Great food!
by OpenTable Diner on March 31, 2018
I have had brunch at Steak 954 a number of times and it is always very good. The location across from the beach is of course, great. The food selection for the a la crate brunch menu is large so everyone should be happy, everything from eggs to burgers to black cod and steaks. The cocktail menu is very good and they make a well balanced cocktail, which is nice to see since so many so called good restaurants stiff you on alcohol content. For the quality of the food, the prices are extremely reasonable. At the top of my list for brunch, many places disappoint. Regards. Ned.

Wonderful!!! I highly recommend it
by OpenTable Diner on March 29, 2018
Very good! Seafood Tower was wonderful!
by JasonT on March 27, 2018
A bit pricy but very nice service and amazing food.
by RajA on March 26, 2018
Food was really excellent...highly recommend the crab cakes. Alsoo enjoyed branzino, oysters, duck tacos. For dessert apple pie was fantastic, soufflé was also good but would have preferred the chocolate cake! Food in Ft LAUDERDALE was quite good all around but this was just better... Recommend you give it a try.

This place is amazing . We go about once or twice a month . If you haven't dined here you're missing out . The best

Great steakhouse! Meat was cooked to perfection!

This was the worst experience at a Stephen Starr restaurant and let alone an upscale steak house. Their manager Jason was equally disappointing as this failed birthday dinner. For starters, It was so loud inside that you wouldn’t be able to carry any conversation- so my boyfriend and I requested to sit out front on their patio. It was equally so dark inside and out that I had to use my flashlight on my phone to even read the menu. Our food and drinks took excessively long to the table that our waiter was overly apologetic. The waiter, Tom, was probably the only saving grace to this awful, overpriced meal. Then- when our steaks did arrive, they were dry as a bone. There was absolutely no juice to them. We both ordered them medium and received well done, when we took out of flashlights (again) to see how overcooked they were our waiter was in disbelief. Half way through the meal four clearly inebriated men on a bachelor party weekend were seated next to us. They spent the entire meal dropping insane profanity with every other word while discussing sexually explicit experiences and fantasies. Unfortunately those men were friends with someone on the staff that “hooked them up” and were “bros with” so they weren’t going anywhere. to say the least my appetite was completely gone at that point. For over a $250 meal between two for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner celebration while we are here for vacation is disgusting. We’re both from Philadelphia and loved Stephen Starr’s restaurants there because their food and staff has always been to satisfaction. After speaking to the manager, Jason, i was left even more upset and disgusted. He was dismissive, uninterested and offered no apology or means to remedy this nightmare of a destination birthday dinner. This was supposed to be the highlight of the trip and it’s nearly ruined it. Do not waste your time or money here.

Awesome restaurant from the food, the service and ambiance (location on fort lauderdale beach is great). Slightly pricey but still worth it.
by BVdiner on March 24, 2018
Wonderful ocean view from the terrace. Amazing steaks. Good wine selection at good prices. Homemade desserts.
by OpenTable Diner on March 23, 2018
Stephanie, our server was amazing! Made the whole meal and evening even better than it already was. Food was delicious. Extensive wine list, lots of great options, but wine prices were way above average. Otherwise everything was great!
by Moose on March 22, 2018
Excellent steaks, generous pours, attentive service. Starr has done it again!
by tsmelter on March 22, 2018
Excellent in all respects except lighting. Very difficult for older people to see. Need less ambiance more lighting
by Jules on March 22, 2018
The steaks here are incredible as were the side dishes. Just a great overall dining experience.
by OpenTable Diner on March 20, 2018
Always great!
by Vtek on March 19, 2018
Was incredible per usual except for when I got there for reservation time, they didn’t have seating outside. I accepted inside but as we were waiting a party that was done came in off the patio. I asked if we could have that table and was told the manager wouldn’t allow the open table to be sat as it was “too busy” out there. If we wanted the table we had to wait 40 minutes. The failure of the manager to staff properly shouldn’t impact the guest experience requests
by OpenTable Diner on March 18, 2018
First date. Was quite loud with a few inebriated people. It’s also so dark in there you can barely see the menu especially if you’re on an outer wall table against the glass.
by OpenTable Diner on March 18, 2018
We hosted my sister’s girls get-together brunch here. It was the perfect place for brunch. The food was great. Our waiter Marty provided exceptional service and went above and beyond to bill us individually. I would definitely come back here.
by OpenTable Diner on March 18, 2018
We were pleasantly surprised since we had not been to this restaurant in serval years. I am not sure if it is the glass outside or what, but it was relatively quiet considering we were outside right next to A1A. Our server was incredibly attentive and pleasant. We were very please with the quality of the food as well as the presentation. Overall a great experience. We will definitely be back!
by OpenTable Diner on March 18, 2018
Love the pancakes. Food is always delicious
by JeffreyK on March 17, 2018
I have dined at Steak 954 several times and have never been disappointed. Steak 954 is not like other steakhouses in the area. The food is exceptional, and there are items other than steak that you will not find at a traditional steakhouse. The restaurant has a great vibe, and its location just across from the beach is exceptional. The staff is professional and the service is very good.
by CeliaM on March 17, 2018
The best part was being seated in the side room, where it was much quieter, and we could hear each other speak!
by Rand on March 17, 2018
Great food and vibe outdoors. Only negative was that smoking is allowed outdoors on the patio. It isn’t enjoyable to eat when someone is smoking behind you. Aside from that, it was a great experience. Get the cookie platter for dessert. It does not disappoint!
