This was one of our favs back in the day. The service and food has declined tremendously. Our dinner took 2.5 hrs (we ordered appetizers and our meal about 5min after being seated). The waiter apologized about their sushi chefs being “backed up” but 2.5 hrs for dinner when the restaurant was not even half full Is crazy.

The quality of the food was average (at best). In the future we will continue taking our business to Shin Sei.

Steel, a long time Sushi favorite in Dallas offers a great menu. The ambience is good and a great option for date night.

My review is toned down from what I wanted to write, based on how we were greeted and taken to our table after making a reservation 24 hours in advance via Open Table. The restaurant was at perhaps 50% full or less, but yet we were seated at a table near the main traffic route servers and guest. My wife asked if it was possible to be seated at another table, the host said those are all reserved. I replied by saying, so do we, but he wouldn't offer another table, other than telling us we could sit at the bar.

We sat down, and began our dinner, but the tables he said were reserved, never were used. Did not leave a good impression.

The server was good, a bit rushed. The overall service experience was slow and inconsistent.

It's not hard to find good sushi in Dallas, so many options, and Steel has an opportunity to create something that is truly unique. But in a space where the differences in food quality are very close.... Service is the differentiator.

Haven't been in years and now I remember why. Extremely slow service. Price vs portion size does not align. Expensive dinner for a lack luster experience with slow service.

This was easily the worst restaurant I have ever been to. Reservation was for 8:00, by 9:30 we still had no food. Asked the waiter what was taking so long and he said “sorry we can’t make your food” and then brought the check. Literally unbelievable. Wonder how long I would have had to wait before they finally said that. Never go here. Saturday night, and this is the service you get. Absolutely terrible. Never go here.

My husband and I had a wonderful date night here for our anniversary. The service was perfect, and our food and drinks were great. The mule was more gingery than any other mule I’ve had, which made it the perfect compliment to my food. When I order a mule anywhere else, the one from Steel is the one I’ll be wishing it was I’m sure. My husband’s favorite thing we ate was the toro, and for me, it was the soft shell crab. The way the soft shell crab was fried made it light and crispy, not soggy or greasy at all. Everything was fresh and prepared well. I definitely recommend the restaurant for anything from a date night to hanging out with a bunch of friends sharing plates and drinking mules, sake, or flights of Japanese whisky!

The Wine deal was great . we were seated quickly and our server was attentive and friendly. We had the tune tower to start it was devine. The we shard the cherry blossom roll and the firecracker roll. Both were great. The onlydrawback is that we were seated next to a couple that were cooking on a hot rock and the smoke from that was a bit much. we will definitely be back.

I had a 6:45 PM reservation on Thursday June 17, 2021. I arrived promptly and was seated. That was the last time I saw a restaurant employee. I sat for 30 minutes in an almost empty restaurant without and employee ever acknowledging my presence.

After 30 minutes I got up and left. First time in my life I have walked out of a restaurant. The hostess had the gall to thank me on my way out. I told her that I hadn’t eaten or even been spoken to by a server. She apologized but blamed someone else.

The manager chased me down on the sidewalk outside the restaurant and apologized. He offered to pick up the tab for dinner if I would come back inside. I declined. He blamed the hostess for not telling him I was seated.

There were eight other customers in the restaurant which looks like it probably seats around 60. In the 30 minutes I was there I saw one dish come out of the kitchen and two employees at the sushi bar looking extremely confused.

There is obviously something very wrong happening at Steel. I will not return no matter the circumstances and advise all others to avoid it until they get their problems corrected.

Chose Steel for my birthday dinner. I didn't mention in my reservation that is was my birthday, however, when entering the restaurant, I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted with a warm "Happy Birthday". Service and food were very good. The complimentary birthday presentation of the cheesecake with chocolate, caramel and warm raspberry sauce was a lovely touch. This place is tucked away, but worth the visit.

Steel should be renamed to rust. This place is a far cry from what it used to be. It’s been a few years since I have been here but since moving to Fort Worth last year we have been returning to Dallas to dine on the weekends. Booked for Saturday night and walked in at 8:45. There was maybe 4-5 tables with diners but overall the restaurant was empty. Ordered a seaweed salad, the centrum combo and 2 entrees.

The seaweed salad arrived somewhat promptly but I should of known there was going to be a problem when my waiter took off out the front door and was gone for about 20 minutes. Upon his return he breezed by our table and I stopped him and asked where our sushi was??? He went to check and said there was a mixup and here’s some free edamame. Another 20 mins rolls by and he shows up with our unimpressive $75 plate of sushi. Definitely way overpriced. There are way better options in Dallas for what I received. Finally our mains arrived and again, lackluster.

I remember Steel being one of the best in Dallas at one time. Now it’s not even on par with the semi fast sushi options around town. The staff seems disengaged and not to care. There’s no manager on staff on Saturday night as stated by the hostess as she was leaving early to the bartender. The best service was from the busboy who was the most attentive.

Steel has rusted, and may be irreparable. Save your money. There are far better options.

The service we received was really questionable. It seemed like our server may have been having a bad night. We all left shaking our heads wondering what just happened. My friends were afraid to ask for any additional items because they were worried they might upset her further. We were a large party of 8 but our dinner took over 3 hours due to slow service. It was not a great experience which was disappointing since we were celebrating my wife’s birthday.
