Food was very good, but a little on the pricey side. Although not completely out of line with other steak houses

We went for lunch at Stevens'. There was a good selection of lunch options and the salad I ordered was delicious. My fellow diners also enjoyed their sandwiches and salads.

Stevens did a good job in accommodating my adjustment to my business dinner from my original 6 people to 12 people. My party loved the wine and food especially the lamb chops . Dessert portions were large as well. I will definitely come back!

When a restaurant is on the higher end of the price scale, they better deliver on all counts. Well, this establishment went above and beyond. We started off with the calamari. Yum! My husband ordered the 14 oz NY strip with mashed sweet potatoes and was extremely content with the choice. I had one of their salads and their Portobello... More

We walked in on a Saturday evening without a reservation, so we waited a bit, even though we were told the wait would be an hour. I explained to the hostess that it was our 45th anniversary, which is why I turned down a booth next to the bar. In a few minutes a gentleman came and offered us drinks,... More

I definitely give a thumbs up for this place. Has a very good steak, but is pricey. The salmon is also good. The wait staff are friendly, and the manager is great. Give it a try!
