Chopsticks or not, you'll love it
How can a place be simultaneously trendy and cozy, foodie paradise and comfort food? Steel definitely is one of those rare combos that is worth experiencing first hand.
The ambiance is inviting, the staff is friendly and remembers your name and what you like, the food is delicious and comes out quickly. What more can you desire in a restaurant.
My experience is mainly over lunch, but i can imagine it being a hotspot at night, with its swanky bar with beautiful water "lace"

This was my first time at Steel and I wasn't disappointed. The vegetable tempura was very good. Our server was attentive and I enjoyed the ambience. I will definitely return.

Steel takes every sense into consideration and delivers an amazing experience for each guest. Visually pleasing atmosphere, extremely considerate staff, extreme attention to detail, and some of the most creative blends of ingredients and flavors one might ever enjoy! Convenient location, ample parking... It just doesn't get any better than Steel.

A great evening at Steel
This was my first visit at Steel. I'll come back. This was surprisingly good. Excellent menu and daily specials. The ginger cocktail is great. The service was a little slow, but we sat in the bar area, so this may not be the norm. Great evening.

I formerly used to be more of a non-veg person, but lately have been eating mostly veg. For veg sushi, this place definitely has a better selection then most places in town, The Harvest Roll is probably my favorite. Drinks are fantastic as usual. I definitely would recommend this place, can't say much about the non-veg as I have not had that here.

The food was presented and prepared beautifully. The fresh crab rolls were outstanding and the tempura was lite delicious. Everything we ordered was flavorful. I will return here again soon!

Can't go wrong
Our server was very engaging and offered excellent suggestions from the menu. So many great choices that suggestions will be welcomed. The food does not disappoint and the portions will not leave you hungry. We look forward to returning.

Gathering of Friends
Overall the exprience was good. The service was a little slow for an early dinner @6pm. for party of five. I have been to Steel at least 4 times and the food quality is consistent.
Server did not tell us abot the shared plates for $5 which we paid $9 or price on the menu. Quite disappointing.

Very good service and food

Out of the park!
Tucked nicely on the corner with free covered parking at the Publix drive in garage was this wonderful little place. Nicely decorated, quiet and classy. I immediately knew that I hit it out of the park with my date. The evening was a continued excellent experience as the recommended pairings were spot on, and little things like hand ground fresh imported Wasabi were shared with a little education on why it is different. Everything was just right, romantic, and quiet. WELL DONE!

Sea bass to die for!!
The sea bass with asparagus was outstanding with flavors usually not found in this fish. Also, the edamame hummus was an excellent starter. The wine list is impressive. Our server, Meechie, was attentive without hovering and enhanced the already great dining experience. Will return any time we are in Atlanta.

Best Sushi in Atlanta!
Amazing menu and always a great time. The best sushi and the best fried rice!

Try the ishiyaki (hot stone) method
Amazing ishiyaki, lovely hot tea service, perfect wait service, great sea bass, and sushi! I highly recommend this place! They gave us a free chocolate lava cake with happy anniversary written on the plate, just because I mentioned the special occasion when I made the reservation!

Best Sushi and Service in Atlanta
From the moment you walk in you are greeted with Service with a Smile and Style. It just gets better from this point. The staff understands what service is and delivers 100%. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful when asking for recommendations which included wine pairings.
The food from appetizer to dessert is as appealing to the eye as it is to the taste.The menu is expansive as well, serving everyone from the sushi novice to those who dare to live on the adventurous side.One person in our party needed the Gluten Free options and she was impressed and delighted in her choices of the Strawberry Fields Roll and the Curry Chicken skewer; just to name two.
We had a fabulous time and can't wait until our next meal together at Steel.

I eat here nearly every trip
I eat here nearly every trip to Atlanta. The food is great, albeit a little pricy for lunch.

Best Sea Bass In Atlanta
Chuck & staff are the best in Atlanta....The food is outstanding every time!!!!!!!!!!!!

With a group of seven, I thought
With a group of seven, I thought we might have some challenges. The wait staff was really terrific and patient - the food was brought out at the same time and everything was prepared as expected. There were two girls under 17 - one had the citrus glazed salmon, and LOVED it. The other chose the crispy beef - and ate all of it! Around the table everything was fantastic - miso glazed sea bass, beef filet, tuna tower, shaken beef, and cashew chicken. Appetizers were lettuce wraps and steamed dumplings. It was a litte cold in the restaurant, and most of us would have appreciated a jacket.
I HIGHLY recommend Steel to anyone visiting the midtown area!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We sometimes forget about Steel, but, every time we go, we remember that the food is exceptional. Everything from appetizers to salads to mains; it is all delicious and beautifully and perfectly prepared. Only problem - there is SO MUCH on the menu that we always want to try!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
always so good to me
The staff at Steel are amazing. They have never let me down. This is my go-to restaurant in Midtown for business client dinners. The food is great to share, the staff attentive but respectful of conversations. And the food both cooked, and sushi is fantastic. They actually grate the wasabi right there in front of you - SO fresh and without the added horseradish. The Strawberry Fields roll is a fav, as is the Volcano roll with scallops and crawfish topping. And for cooked food - the sea bass is like butter. Really - I love this place.

The hubby and I decided to come here for our first anniversary celebration. Neither of us have ever eaten here before, but it was a great experience all around. The calamari appetizer was delightful. I'm a great sushi lover, which is why my sweet husband sought out this restaurant which was nearby the Renaissance hotel where we were staying while in Atlanta. Of course, I ordered a STEEL signature dish, the "Mt. Fuji". Everything tasted delightfully fresh and the spice of the sauces on top was really great. My husband completely enjoyed his meal as well, most notably the wasabi mashed potatoes. Our waiter was always polite, friendly, and prompt. We will definitely be considering this place for next year's anniversary dinner!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
EXCELLENT Service - that stood out for me, particularly for an in-town restaurant. We mostly had sushi which was all quite good. We did have one Gluten free meal, grilled Salmon with Asparagus - perfectly done. Also, the adult beverage Sake with Cucumber was outstanding.

My boyfriend, a couple of
My boyfriend, a couple of our out-of-town friends, and I went to Steel on the first day of midtown restaurant week. We liked my appetizer & entrée choices more than his -- I got the shumai and curry crab, while he got the ceviche salad and mussels & salmon. Both desserts were great -- a chocolate tart and beignets. We've been here for sushi before, which is also great.

Delicious Asian Fusion
We went to Steel during Restaurant Week and enjoyed a fantastic three course, prix fix dinner. A true neighborhood gem.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I filled out the note in the reservation request and mentioned that it was my son's birthday. Not only did they call and confirm, mentionining his birthday, but the hostess greeted us and mentioned it, wished him HB and then he was presented with a nice dessert with candle at the end of a fabulous meal. Could not have been better!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food selection was great
The food selection was great for the week special. The staff was friendly and very attentive. I will return again.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was not expecting steel to be so amazing. I eat out every night, and after this experience it is my new favorite . The tuna tower and Vietnamese shaken beef are wonderful. Highly recommend it.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had an amazing date night there on a recent Friday. The food was fantastic and our waitress was the BEST! I have gone to Steel for happy hour before and have always had a great meal. Going there for a romantic dinner was even better. Loved every bit of it and can't wait to go back!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favs!
No matter when I go to Steel, whatever I have is wonderful, the service is awesome and I leave considering when I can come back.
The Bento Box is a value I will definitely return for!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Steel was so fresh and delicious. The combination of flavors were amazing (duck spring rolls.......). Service was a bit on the slow side.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very attentive staff and the
Very attentive staff and the food was prepared to perfection. A little bit on the noisy side but that might just have been the group sitting near us.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Expensive but worth it
The food and atmosphere were fabulous. Hubby and I rarely go out but tonight was special and the wait staff and greeter really made it special for us. The Wasabi mashed potatoes and the sushi selections were fabulous. It was wonderful.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect little spot
I go here a lot for the Tuna Tower, but the price + service is incredible. Make sure have a reservation as it gets tight late. This place is truly great.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
young couple dinner date
Great food and great service. The only thing that wasn't great was the noise level coming from the bar and front area; It was very loud. Though, we were still able to hold a conversation and enjoyed our delicious meal together in a beautiful (and appropriately lit) dining room.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I bring high level executive
I bring high level executive clients there quite a bit and Michi always takes great care of us. She's the best server in ATL!

GREAT for corporate companies as we
It was a fabulous experience! Need I say more? LKW
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will definitely go again.
First of all, this restaurant is easy to get to. Right off the Interstate, and easy free parking. We were passing through the city and wanted sushi. Great choice. Outside seating has interesting mid city views. The owner was also the host at the door. He was on top of service, seating, etc. My husband and I both got the bento boxes with the addition of hot and sour soup. The shaking beef was very tasty and tender (which at some places can very tough and chewy). The sushi was also great including the rolls. The one downside was the fried rice, which was gummy. Everything else was great.

Wonderful asian fusion/Japanese restaurant right in the heart of Atlanta
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time at Steel
Top notch food,service, and ambiance! We love Steel and will be back!!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome in every way! Best service I've had in a long time! My husband enjoyed his birthday. Thanks so much!

Best Sea Bass I've ever eaten......Service, Food, Experience..... One of the best in Atlanta!!!!

Everything we ordered was delicious and great ambiance!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am a big fan of Steele. Today's service was not the best. Left off rice and got order slightly wrong. Felt rushed with check and didnt seem that crowded. Will definitely return - may have been a bad day for them
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again, I had a really great experience at Steel! The food and drinks are beyond fantastic and I adore the ambience. The only thing I wasn't super happy about was our waitress. She wasn't nearly as good as some we've had previously. She just wasn't very friendly or communicative. We waited a really long time for our drinks and she had no explaination. It would've been nicer if she wasn't so surly.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my two sons here before the Tech football game - we were somewhat rushed and yet the waitress paced everything perfectly. We didn't feel rushed, but got our meal complete in time for the game. We had a variety of sushi, which was all very good. The free parking in this location was a plus.

Sushi/Sashimi Lunch w/ an Old BFF
I am frequent sushi eater (globally), so kudos for the Best in ATL 2013 award. On the pro side: Very nice atmosphere with Flowing Fountain Koi Pond in the entrance; Bonus for having Wi-Fi; Well presented authentic jasmine tea; Very fresh sushi/sashimi; My hand roll tasted awesome; and My guest also enjoyed the Bento Box. our waitress (Carol) was very attentive and a real pro. Critique: During height of lunch hour Host & Hostess were friendly but a little slow to "greet and seat", even though I had a reservation. Hot and Sour soup was "hot in temperature but nothing special", the California Rolls and Hand Rolls were a bit loose (wrapping skill) and the ginger was not traditional white ginger. Where were the Koi for the Koi Pond?

Great Asian inspired menu with a broad bar and wine selection.

Excellent and quality
I eat very frequently in mid-town, so this is only my 2nd time at Steel this year. I must say that the service and food is excellent. They don't rush you and they don't interrupt you, they give you time to enjoy your drink and appetizers before they serve the entrée. It is more and more difficult to fine restaurants that is all-around of great quality. I will be going back to Steel soon.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very nice find. Enjoyed everything.

Dinner before BBall at Tech
Great food and great convenience. Enjoy a very good, eclectic Asian dinner. Park in the free indoor lot. Walk to GT BBall. After the game, leave lot north or south beating the traffic nightmare.

Been there twice now and we'll plan to go back for birthdays and anniversaries for sure! It's a very special place! The service is a cut above the rest!!!
