Outstanding dinner before theatre. Louis was our server. Always remembers us and is extremely attentive. We had 5 or 6 appetizers for dinner and each was fabulous. The tuna tartar was marvelous.

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

I had not been to Steel for a while and need to say that has been a mistake. Louis, my favorite server, greeted me at the door with a grand smile and hug. We had a great table and set out on a wonderful dining experience. We enjoyed the Sea Bass appetizer. PERFECT; the Tuna Tartar--interesting presentation and the taste was WONDERFUL. We then shared two sushi rolls. Fire Cracker and another one that I do not remember the name of but Louis had stated that it was a special request to keep on the menu and it was FANTASTIC. One of the best I have ever had. Topped it off with dessert. A wonderful dining and service experience. Will be back soon. Thank you Louis for a great evening.

Wow …. what a fantastic dining experience. We went with another couple this past Saturday night. The restaurant was not busy. our server, Louis, was gracious, professional and absolutely wonderful at his job. He thought of everything, was always available but not intrusive and added several nice touches to make our dining experience even better.

Regarding the food, we had several different appetizers, sushi rolls, and entrees. Everything was perfectly fresh and delicious. All of the maki sushi rolls were great. The skyfall roll is nice if you want something lighter without a lot of rice. The 3 entrees we had were all amazing …. Shaken Beef, Drunken Noodles with scallops, shrimp and calamari, and Duck with noodles, vegetables and a big sunny side up egg. The wine list is good. They offer 50% off bottles on Sunday evenings. Their cocktail list looked great too. There is a valet out front for parking.

We had not been here in a couple years, and now we remember why we used to enjoy Steel so much. They have been in business for something like 19 years. Don't forget about Steel just because it has been successfully open for so long. We visited the very popular Malai Kitchen the following night and it was not half as good. Steel is amazing! With first class service!! Give it a try, you won't regret it.

We've been going to Steel since it opened and have seen them through multiple managers, chefs, waitstaff, valet parker as has been the service. We are always concerned that sooner or later the owners will look at the bottom line and close it. Last Sunday 6:30 to 8:00 pm we were one of two tables occupied. Go figure. Our standard Crispy Beef and house salad was not the best I've ever had, but really good. The spring rolls and fried vietnamese rolls were ok....I've had better there. Still, with all my complaints, this should be one of the best asian fusion places around. Can't figure out why they can't make it work. I'll be back next week.

Food and service very good! There is a sewer problem so the restrooms have a very bad smell. The owners are aware of the issue and working with the building to correct.
