Incoming report from Steve Field’s Steak and Lobster in not-so-Plano:
We arrived early for our reservation at Steve Field’s Steak and Lobster Lounge. I’d heard about the Plano restaurant before and based on their extensive RW menu offerings, made a reservation for four on Sunday night.
Upon arrival, our table was not yet ready so we enjoyed a glass of wine (all-day happy hour on Sunday) and enjoyed the live jazz piano performance in the bar. Once our table was availabe, we settled into our cozy booth and the server passed out a restaurant week menu as well as the normal menu so we could review all of our choices. He was very laid back and easy going, which made us feel extremely welcome and not rushed like some reviewers have felt.
The “fourth course” offering was a mini crab cake (you could use your coupon or pay $5 extra). We ordered two with our coupons and the kitchen split the order into four portions for us. The crab meat was sweet and delicious with hardly any other filling or breadcrumbs.
Most of our group enjoyed the wedge salad, but some chose the crab and corn chowder and it was my favorite dish of the meal. The wedge was great with a spicy vinaigrette, bleu cheese, tomato, and bacon garnish.
For our entrees, we each tried something different. Every entree came with smoked cheese mashed potatoes and julienned veggies. Our four entrees included the filet, the prime rib, salmon, and lobster tail. Each portion was generous and everything was cooked to perfection. We were just feeling a bit full when we remember that dessert was on the way.
I’d love to describe all the desserts but our party chose the raspberry chocolate cheesecake and the caramel buttercream chocolate cake. Did you read that? Caramel. Buttercream. Chocolate. Cake. Individually? Wonderful. Together? A dream dessert.
Our server was extremely attentive and friendly. He wanted feedback from us at the end of the meal since it was our first visit and we had only good things to say!
I love a story with a happy ending. Thanks.
