The food was absolutely incredible and so were the cocktails. The outdoor seating was right up against a barrier on the street so the ambiance was lacking - but inside looked nice. That being said, our server, Lee (leigh?) made up for it. She had a great personality, shared her favorite dishes and drinks, and was very attentive to the table. We'll definitely be back.

Ok so where to begin…completely baffled!
First I enter restaurant with my husband and let hostess know I have a reservation for the rab bit hole.
She proceeds to tell me they don’t see it perhaps i thought I made reservation. I tell her NO i made it via open table. She says oh no that’s not the correct way, you may have thought you did it. (See pics attached) i followed the reservation requirements correctly. Okayyy , so I said well fine is there availability for 2 people. A gentleman says he didn’t think so but that he would check.

We waited and after 15minutes the gentleman asks were we being helped, my husband reminds him he was checking on availability. He says oh right! yes sorry you have on shorts and they’re not allowed in ra bit hole. Hhmmmm…fine so we opt for a regular seating.

After ordering drinks and apps the same gentleman (assuming he’s manager, not sure) walks in a group of 4 Caucasian folks where both males had on shirts and flip flops.
Mind you my husband had on shorts with boat shoes.

The manager realized he made an “exception” and comped our two drinks.
I will by no means play the “race card”, however we have frequented this establishment in the past when it was The Wooden Spoon and have had wonderful experiences.

I will probably return because I like to support local businesses as well as I want to experience the speakeasy however it did leave a bad taste in my mouth.

Blue Steel was great. Vibes were wonderful. Food was really good. I wasn't in love with what we ordered, but many of the dishes are somewhat one of a kind. I enjoyed taking the risk and will definitely go back to try their other stuff.

This meal was unreal. It was our anniversary and they sent us some bubbly to start the night. So thoughtful and a great start to the evening. Everything was perfection, including the dry aged ribeye that was perfectly cooked (med-rare)! I write a review every time we visit because I truly love it that much.

My favorite thing about my experience was the ambience & overall vibe of the restaurant. Great music was playing, upstairs had dim lighting, great decor, & a lounge area in addition to seating at tables. Would definitely come back for date night or with a group of friends.

This Sunday brunch experience at Blue Steel was stressful. The food orders were not correct. We ordered the mini pork bun but they tasted more like soup dumplings and the description matched the pork dumpling. I would have loved to try the shrimp bao buns, which I ordered but sadly never received after asking three different people for them and waiting over an hour. The women's upstairs restroom was out of toilet paper. The cherry on top of this frustrating meal was getting another party's order charged to our card.

We had been here before for the normal menu, which was great, so we were eager to try the special dim sum offerings on Sunday. I loved the idea of the cold cart but it was a little confusing; we initially said we didn't want any of the items offered the first time it was brought around and were then skipped over (luckily, we cleared everything up so we could try the new items that were added). Everything we ate/drank was delicious and creative, and our main server was attentive and kind. We also really appreciated the enthusiasm of the person serving from the cold cart. There were a few items on the online menu for this specific brunch that were not listed on the day-of menu, which is understandable, but disappointing for a special event. While it's fine to have a DJ at lunch, and the one there seemed great, maybe offer more times/hours without loud music for people who want to eat there without that vibe. Finally, if you have a section on OpenTable to ask about special occasions, it's always a nice touch when the restaurant acknowledges that, which Blue Steel did not. Overall, a great experience, with a few tweaks to perhaps work out for next time.

Detroit style pizza is a little different than your typical North Jersey pie. Blue Steel does it right! We had 4 different “pies” and they were all excellent.

A few teacher friends and I went to Blue Steel for a late lunch after work to celebrate the end of the school year. We loved the cool ambiance, our adorable and funny waitress, the friendliness of the whole staff, and the food was very good. The highest reviews went to the meatball appetizer, and the shrimp and the crab appetizers were also very yummy (especially the shrimp sauce for dipping toasty bread). Everyone loved the Detroit-style pizza, although a few of us still prefer a thin-crust for more every-day pizza. But for a change from the ordinary, the thick crust paired with the brick cheese of the midwest was delicious. We got the eggplant pizza and everyone was very happy it!

Everything from the food the drinks the atmosphere was all friendly and welcoming. You can tell the food is made fresh. Also make sure to Ask the waiter or waitress for their best recommendations on the menu because they pointed us in the right direction each time.

Went for the dim sum brunch and after an hour and a half had only received cold dim sum and a few ordered items from the kitchen. Items came out at random times, nothing hot came out together. The servers were pleasant and the manager comped a few things which was appreciated. But too little to late. Should not be waiting an hour and a half for dumplings.

The pizza here is usually good but everything about this brunch was a calamitous failure. Stick to your wheelhouse.
