They are the worst. The owners are very unconcerned with customer service and would not let us use a gift certificate we had (cash in our opinion since my mon gave them cash for it) with a double deal we brought with us. They were dismissive and unhelpful.

We thought the food was delicious and the service was great.
I don't think the prices are high for what you get.
Also very friendly atmosphere.

Went to Stephan??s on state in Media this past Friday night. I read these reviews before we went to form my own opinion, besides I had a couple gift certs to use for the place. I am soooo glad I didn??t pay attention to these reviews. The place was great. We were seated right away and our drink order was taken. Bread was brought to our table not a minute later. Valerie our server was informative, friendly and courteous. We could not have asked for a better waitress. And no I do not know her personally nor have I ever been to this restaurant. The table we sat at was a little dimly lit but I am not complaining, it added to the ambiance I will actually ask for this table when I go back, they had quite a few tables that were amply lit, so I don??t know where that other reviewer sat.
Now the food was most excellent. The Calamari with the Tiy sauce was really really good. My husband had a glass of the house wine that he said was pretty good for a house wine and believe me he knows his wine. We ordered Steaks for dinner, and they were done perfectly, the mashed potatoes were awesome. We even had desert, and we never really do desert, but figured if the everything else was this good then the deserts should be wonderful. We were not disappointed!
All in all I will definitely go back to Stephan??s on state it may become one of our favorite places to go. Well worth the trip from philly to Media.

Why anyone would spend their hard earned money at this place is beyond me...The food is mediocre at best and the service is horrible..The waitresses and waiters are not friendly, and the service is extremely slow..If you wanted a burger from the bar menu and you were in the dining room, you would be refused as the chef will not make a burger unless your at the bar...With all the good restaurants in Media, Pa., it is a wonder why people eat here.(maybe they are too intoxicated to notice)..To pay $38.00 and above for tough, bland, meat, and get horrible service and attitude, is not for me or my family...I will never go back to Stephens on State

Cons: Very, Very slow, and unfriendly service

Had a very bad experience there recently. They took our drink order reasonably quickly. Not too much after the dinner order. But then the trouble began. 20 minutes plus passed and I finally complained - we were through our drinks and out of bread and hadn't even received our appetizers yet. Finally they came out, we were long finished with those - still no sign of the main course - when our waiter came over started clearing our plates and asked if anyone wanted dessert - to which I replied - we'd like our main dishes first! He got all confused - finally recovered and brought us new utensils etc. since he had cleared everything. Eventually the main dishes came. We finish with that and it turned out we had a coupon that seemed relevant to the meal we had. We presented it to our waiter who had to clear it with the owner - Stephen. They let us use it but not without making us feel bad about not presenting it upfront and making us feel like we were cheap. After the lecture - or waiter said "Otherwise - have a good night." I left a large tip in spite of the poor service to make the point that we were not cheap. I wrote on the credit card slip about how disappointed we were in the horrible service. Then I wrote "Otherwise - have a good night." We will NEVER go back there again. I suggest you don't either. BTW - we had a reservation and that was the kind of service we got. What was particularly disappointing was their need to make us feel bad about the coupon after having received such abysmal service. What a shame.

Are you people crazy or just plain cheap?! This resturant is first class! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! The food is fabulous and NOT too expensive at all! You get GREAT service and an excellent selection of very delicious and creative food choices. From the exotic salads to baked clams and TERRIFFIC steak, (that you can absolutley not get at the grocery store and cook at home!) it is five star all the way. Not to mention the great entertainment that they have is lively and always makes it a fun upbeat atmosphere. If you are looking for a great nite out with good drinks food and fun, Stephens on State is definatley the place to go.

Well , I dont eat out often because I know how to cook. but a friend said lets go here and since he has money burning holes in his pocket i said ok . I had the special which was an overcooked Filet Mignon , Loose Mashed potatoes and 5 spears of wilted asparagus. Seriously it tasted like they prepared all of the house special steaks in advance and than warmed them to order. I ordered medium rare and my steak was tough , dry and leathery. 35 a plate is ridiculous for a 6 $ steak and some bad mashed potatoes. the place is nice but dark as hell so you cant see WHAT your eating. the only up side to the meal was the salad. It was baby spinach with candied nuts , mandarin oranges and goat cheese sprinkled around in a lovely vinagrette. plus 3 really nice sea scallops on the side. I should have had the salad and not ordered anything else. Im sorry to burst your bubble but people you can go buy a whole Filet and butcher it yourself for what dinner for 3 was. 200$ Is out of hand and for that type of money I really did expect something more.

This is the higher class counter pary of Top 5 bar and grill. The same guy owns both... The food here is very good if you are interested in paying almost 15 for a burger!!! I would recommend Steve's other establishment in Wynwood over this place!!!

Reservations suggested.

I chose to go to Stephen's for a good steak. What I received was a great steak.

When you walk in the place is divided between 2, the left side is the bar, the right side is for dinner.

The light is dimmed low and the decor is retro.

There are less than 20 tables (hence the dinner reservations).

The service was fantastic.

I started with a soda from the bar and ordered a crock of french onion soup. The bowl was filled with many sweet onions and the cheese just melted right. I chose the filet, cooked medium. I beleive the meal was complete with a vegatable medley and potato. The streak was tasty, cooked with different spices, cooked exactly how i asked for it. It was tender, no fat whatsoever.
I couldn't eat dessert. I was stuffed.
