Steel is a sleek restaurant in Midtown serving Asian cuisine and hosts a happy hour on Wednesday evenings popular with young professionals. Popular dishes include the tuna tower, the interactive Japanese hot rock dishes and my personal favorite, the Chilean sea bass.
World's Best Sushi Restaurant – I recently hosted an event at Steel Atlanta and it was a great decision. The service was outstanding, the atmosphere was wonderful and the sushi was the best I've had anywhere - including Japan! Thank you Kitty, Mike, Matthew, Deven, Jose and the entire team at Steel Restaurant & Lounge Atlanta!
Good food..mediocre service – I recently hosted by boyfriends 25th birthday party for 30 people at this restaurant. The manager was great, b/c she did not force my large party to conform to a prix fixed menu and instead let us order off the regular menu. They sat my group in a semi-private area in the back, which was great, b/c it felt like we had a private dining area. The food and drinks were pretty good and came out relatively quickly. My only complaint was the servers we were given (we had bout 4). It could've been the large party or the fact that it just wasn't their night, but 2 of them were generally rude and had a bitter face on the whole night. Our table also saw two of the servers blatantly argue and become catty towards one another at the head of our table, which was very unprofessional. Overall, I'd definitely go back to experience more of the dishes.
Love this place and eat here every time I'm in Atlanta – I eat at Steel everytime I visit Atlanta as my family and I love the food and service. This trip I started with the Dragon Martini and my family enjoyed the Kettle One Cocktail specials (think they offer cocktail deals on kettle one drinks all the time). We didn't have appitizers since we couldn't decide between 4 entrees so we got them to share instead of an app. We had the Vietnaimese Shaken Beef (which I get each visit), the Grilled Tenderloin which I had never had before but will again for sure. We also had the Honey Teriyaki Salmon and Citrus Glazed Shimp. Salmon was great but the shrimp wasn't anything special. When the manager stopped by to check on us, I shared that the shimp was good but wasn't special like the other dishes. He mentioned that the are looking at that and may change it up. It makes sense since the rest of the menu is so great. I've had sushi here many times and love it too, but it was a chilly night so I was in the mood for hot entree dishes. They got us in and fed quickly without rushing us so that we made it to our 8pm show at the Alliance Theater in perfect time as its just down the street. Can't wait for my next trip to Atlanta and my 5th visit to Steel.
Astonishingly Good! – I had a reservation for 12, and it couldn't have gone better. The food was out in a reasonable amount of time, and our drinks were plentiful. The sushi was excellent, and the atmosphere was classy. I'll be going back soon.
I go for the drinks! – I go to Steel for the drinks. Yes they have a great selection of sushi (or so I am told by my friends who dine there.) And yes you can get other Pan-Asian cusine if sushi is not your thing. But-- I never go to Steel to eat... the drinks are fabulous and creative, so I go to drink!! Cucumber Martini's and Blackberry Mijitos...lots of fresh, unusual cocktails in a very cool atmosphere. And the Happy-Hour specials are fair. That's what I like!
tasty. not cheap. but tasty. – this is a "3rd date" kinda place. so far, a fairly effective one, too. i like this place. the sidewalk couches are a nice touch. great for day drinking.
Inventive sushi and great atmosophere – There are certainly quite a few great sushi joints in Atlanta, but what sets Steel apart is that it is also a great restaurant. The staff is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, the sushi is delicious and unique, and the bar is a great place to hang out with $5 Ketel One and soda and a sushi roll. The entire restaurant has a great vibe (check out the water wall!) and it's also a good place to take non-sushi eaters because they have rice bowls and other Asian-inspired entrees in addition to the extensive sushi menu. The chocolate volcano cake is deserving of the name: it's a dense, hot, and dangerous way to complete a meal!
Delicious! – I went to Steel recently with a large group of friends. When I go to a restaurant with a large group, I'm always nervous that the service won't be able to keep up... but that wasn't the case with Steel. The server was friendly, professional and all of our food came out in a timely manner. The chef even came to say hello to our table at one point.
Our appetizers were delicious- I almost ate too much before my dinner arrived. For my main meal, I had the sea bass. I love sea bass and this one didn't disappoint. It was very good! I only had sushi as an appetizer, but that small sampling was delicious enough that I'll be back for a sushi dinner soon.
LOVE the Mango Martini – Great spot for drinks or dinner...service is prompt, menu has something for everybody. Died over the mango martini...has slices of mango in it...YUM!
FIVE STARS FOR STEEL – I've been here two times now. Each time, we had the best experience for dinner. Started off with some great appetizers (highly recommend the Calamari); followed by even better entrees. The wait staff is extremely professional and accomodating. Dessert was delicious!! Great place for a girl's night or a date. The second time I brought my 4 year old and they specialized her meal for her.
Will be back again!
