Normally a great sushi spot, but this time it was pretty awful. No one talked to us for first 20 minutes. Service was so bad. I don’t if they were just extra busy Saturday night post Valentines Day, but the service kind of ruined the dining experience. Also, the food wasn’t as good as usual.

Our service was a bit off. Had to repeatedly track down waiter for more water and he never asked if we wanted another glass of wine which we would have.

Been going there for many years but this time was somewhat disappointing. Food not that great, new service person seemed lost and no mention of specials during the early hours during the week.... May not return.

We went for Chinese New Year and the lion dance. The food was great as always service also with Lexie. The lion dance although late was better than expected. Well worth waiting for. The sea bass appetizer was great as always. The volcano sushi was good. The pork special was good also. Always a great place to go. .

Still one of the best seafood restaurants in Dallas. Be sure to try the miso sea bass. It melts in your mouth.

Solid choice for excellent sushi. Red Snapper special was fab. For rolls you can’t beat the Cherry Blossom (without cream cheese) and the dynamite roll. This place had hospitality locked down.

I made reservations for the restaurant as a few years ago I use to love their food and the service was great. We got there on time but we’re asked to wait at the bar, which we didn’t mind. Later we found out that they are short staffed and the GM was making drinks with the bar tender behind the bar. People that came 20 to 30 minutes after us were seated before us. I checked with the front desk / reception a few times but to no use. We waited for 45 minutes and then decided to leave.
We are very disappointed with the service and will not recommend it to anyone. They need to staff up and have a good management if they want to stay in business.

Omg it is time to fix the heat at this restaurant honestly. It has always been freezing for years by the door. But this was crazy. I literally had to wear my coat for dinner. NYE always crazy busy. My food good one of our party had a tough steak and cold food. No wonder. Seemed understaffed. I have always loved this restaurant but the location not please find a new space . Your restaurant deserves better!!!

We are so happy we tried Steel Sushi. We loved everything about it... the food, the service, the ambiance, everything! Not only is the sushi wonderfully fresh, but the baked sea bass is truly phenomenal. Valet parking was free for Steel customers the Friday night we were there, not sure about other days of the week. Overall, a great experience and we can wait to go back!

I always forget about Steel since it's been here so long, which is actually quite a positive statement about their longevity. The food was awesome and I'll be coming back regularly.

Steel has an excellent ambiance and the noise level is perfect so that you do not feel as if your conversation is being heard however, the music level is high enough to catch the song playing (great playlist). The food melts in your mouth and the staff is courteous and in tune with the Customers needs at all times. This is a great dining experience and I recommend Steel for a lovely evening for two or a group.

Excellent and attentive service without hovering. We had 4 small plates and split one entré. Our server steared us away from one nenu item and toward the shaken beef which was outstanding. Noise level allowed for easy conversation even in a full restaurant. The wine menu great value wine by the glass selections.

My only "complaint" and it is not truly a complaint was finding where in the building the restaurant was located. But now we know.

It was a wonderful evening with great food, great service, and at a very reasonable price.

We'll be back to be sure.

We had not been to Steel for quite a while and were pleasantly surprised to find our night ( Wednesday ) was 1/2 priced Sushi !
We were greeted warmly by the hostess and by our soon to be waiter Louis. He was an outstanding waiter and very personable and made our experience more enjoyable.
We had a good selection of sashimi and Sushi. The Salmon and yellow tail sashimi were standouts, but all of it was very good.
The restaurant is very attractive, but not very busy that evening, which seems sort of curious, but was nice to have a quiet dining experience.

Inconsistent...2 weeks ago the sushi and sashimi were generous portions and great. This visit had nice quality but extremely small, skimpy portions of fish....literally one fourth the size of the previous visit. First visit was a good value while this last visit was a very poor value. Would not want to repeat based on last service.

Steel was great. Foood is delicious and it felt slightly less expensive than before. The restaurant was not too crowded and you could have a normal conversation without having to yell at each other. Also plenty of available parking make it a great place to go to in DFW area where valet seems to rule every parking
