Four of us went to dinner. Drinks were weak, food arrived cold and not as described.
Lobster was undercooked. The service was adequate and atmosphere was relaxing.
Would not go back .

First time we visited this restaurant in downtown Media. Had great service. Our food was good and cooked to order. Restaurant is on the small side and contains a bar separated by a wall from the dining room. Volume level was quite loud in the dining room, even before the live music kicked in. Probably not the place for a quiet romantic dinner. Used a Restaurant.com certificate to make this pricey restaurant a bit more affordable.

We usually go for the happy hour as drinks are BOGO but tonight we stayed for dinner. The veal was pretty good, as was our flatbread. The prices are a bit high for Media, but we had a Restaurant.com certificate so the final cost wasn't that bad.

There is definitely a scam going on behind the bar at Stephen's! I've read the other reviews about watching your barb tab and it happen to me too. After numerous conversations with friends, it has happened to a few others in my circle as well. The worst thing, it appears that they have the backing of the Media police too, as they threaten to call them when you refuse to pay for drinks you didn't have that appear on your bill. In one instance, a friend insisted on the police coming and they totally sided with the bartenders that they clearly know. This place and their tactics are criminal, someone should investigate this. Clearly you should not patronize this place. And, the food is awful too, the steaks were overdone and the service was awful, not only at the bar, in the dining room too.

My first time having dinner at this restaurant was eye opening. Wwe had Tom as our waiter, and he did a good job otaking care of us. We ordered three horsdoerves for the table and the calamari was outstanding. I ordered the filet mignon rare and it arrived at the table still mooing. The desert was an apple turnover the size of a football field with whip cream and ice cream. All portions were oversized.
I will be back.
