Very welcoming from front of house to servers and bar staff.
We had Korean Beef (recommended by our server) and Pad Thai - both did not disappoint! The serving size of the Pad Thai was huge.
All the servers wore masks, the restaurant was moderately busy so plenty of space between tables and diners.

Very disappointed in the sushi. The fish was literally pulverized and very small portion in both of the rolls that we ordered. The rice seemed swollen and waterlogged. Overwhelming amount of rice compared to rolls I’ve enjoyed for 30 years.

My experience here was nothing short of amazing! The food is phenomenal and our server (Kayla) topped any service I’ve ever encountered in the 14yrs of living in the DFW. If you’re considering dining here; you will not be disappointed.

Showed up at 6:30 on the dot for our 6:30 reservation, was seated immediately, was only about 25% full. Took roughly 10 minutes for anyone to come to the table with water or anything else. Waitress finally showed up, we ordered our drinks and a couple of their most high end appetizers. Roughly 10 minutes more pass, still no drink. Approached the front desk and asked what was going on, said there was a printer issue. Hmmmmm did not seem to be an issue with the others around us. Few minutes more passed, still nothing. We got up and left.

Was at Marimotos the week before and they were outstanding. Will never enter the doors of Steel again. Very sad for a once great place.

Came for a dinner and was highly disappointed. Food took 40 mins to come and entree’s came before appetizers. Pretty chaotic. Additionally one of the items I ordered was missed. The food was mediocre and the service was below par.

For those prices, there shouldn’t be fake crab sticks in the rolls. Not nearly as good as it used to be. In addition to bad food, didn’t help that the order came out wrong, drinks were not refilled, and we were charged for something we didn’t order. Not going back.

This place has great luxury sushi , drinks, wine and more. The staff is so friendly as even the chef comes to your table to check how it is. They truly care about your experience .. when you go ask for Lewis and tell him Johnny Harrison sent you as you will not be disappointed..

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.

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.
