    The service at Steel is always top-notch. Sometimes the kitchen can get a bit backed up, but the wait staff always lets you know if something is delayed. The Edamame Potstickers are must-try for an appetizer!

    We enjoyed the overall feel of this restaurant. It's modern without being sterile. The food was very good. The table liked the apps - wasabi deviled eggs and spring rolls and sushi. I ordered off the GF/V/V+ menu and had a delicious Chilean sea bass dish for the main course. The cocktails were amazing! Especially the blackberry mojito. Service started off slow but redeemed itself throughout the meal. I will definitely go back to try more dishes.

    We ordered four sushi rolls and an appetizer. All of the sushi was fresh and delicious. The staff were amazing, and the presentation of the food left nothing to be desired. We love coming to this restaurant both for dates and with a small group of friends.

    I went during restaurant week, and had their prefix menu. It's a gorgeous restaurant, with a beautiful fountain in the front when you wall in.. The food was absolutely amazing!! From the appetizers to the main course. I had the plum and blackberry chicken, and it was the most flavorful chicken I have ever eaten! I made everyone at the table taste it! LOL! The service was impeccable! I definitely recommend, I don't have anything bad to say! Simply a perfect dining experience.

    The food wasn't as good, kind of a let down, the chicken satay was overly sweet with dryness, the spicy shrimp noodles was ok....the hot and sour soup was not good, way too sour, the miso soup want good, the shaken beef was good but the fried rice that came with it was too wet, it was like eating super wet rice which is not good in my book. Then came the server, she wasnt the best server... kind of really took her time on everything... im not expecting her to wait on hand and foot for me... but she kind of just left us there, like we werent even there... kind of disappointing..

    I had colleagues in town and we were meeting with a client and so I made reservations here as I live nearby but had only been to Steele for dinner. Chase, our waiter, was helpful and gave great recommendations and the food was fantastic. Particularly the edamame potstickers. The Bento Box was a perfect choice for lunch--great size and variety.

    Didn't know what to expect from sushi in GA...since I'm from the west coast and accustomed to fresh seafood from the Pacific. Steel's sushi is in my top 10 for sure. Loved sitting at the sushi bar. The tuna tower was amazing and the sizzling rock steak! Staff was great too...I will be back on my next trip to GA for sure.

    Enjoyed noodle bowls, sushi, and sake. Everything was delicious! The servers, manager, and other Steel employees stopped by our table and welcomed us, made sure we had everything we needed, and shared wonderful conversation. The Strawberry Fields roll, alone, was worth the visit. DELICIOUS! We thoroughly enjoyed the evening!

    Let me start by saying the tuna tower is a reason I will continue to patronize Steel. It's just really good. The sushi is another reason. I think their rolls are fresh and innovative and their nigiri is top-notch. A bonus to my dining experience was our server, Mollie. She is friendly, knowledgable, and efficient. I will definitely return.

    I often have lunch at Steel for business meetings. It has the perfect menu and ambiance for it. Chuck is always highly attentive and extremely gracious. This particular occasion was a dinner event for my team and we all had a perfectly lovely evening. I have also used their beautiful Wine Room for a private party of 30 and will be doing so again next month.

    To actually have a restaurant with a wait staff as friendly as those who worked at Steel is rare. Smiles and acknowledgments, I found I was quite comfortable at both.the bar and my table. My server, was very friendly, and very much available when needed and attentive when not. Despite the noise level, which was very annoying,and the tight quarters, I enjoyed my meal. The Honey Teriyaki Salmon was cooked perfection, the crab rangoons were delectable, the lobster fritters however were...different. Tasting more of cream cheese, than as though there was lobster in them. I wouldn't order them again. Other than that, delicious food.

    Came here for my husbands birthday with another couple and even though it happened to be prom night and there was a bachelorette party and private party of 50 during our dinner the experience was awesome! We had an amazing waitress, Molly who totally knew her wines and foods and was fun, attentive and genuine. The food was great and lots of things I'd like to go bak to try too. I'd recommend this to anyone. It's not inexpensive but worth the price when all the little things come together.

    On Thursday I needed reservations for 7 on Saturday AND at a specific time. I found Steel had reservations available at 7:30. Perfect! When I needed to add an additional person on Saturday morning, Zack was most polite and accommodating to add our 8th. To my delight, the setting was beautiful, the food was creative, delicious, and reasonably priced (two $'s of four), the service was readily available but not cloying. We were seated in a huge booth that somehow kept everyone close enough for conversation, but gave us plenty of elbow room. Lemongrass chicken, Teriaki Salmon, the seabass and more were all perfectly prepared. Oh! And there is free parking adjacent to the restaurant! We could not have been happier with the experience.
