Superb food

Last night of guest Dutch chef. Excellent food but very expensive. Wine was very overpriced with the least expensive starting at over £50.00 and it was not very good. Lively band which was more Middle of the road than jazz but very good. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Currently the Jazz bar has Wilco Berends 1 star Michelin chef from Holland. Unfortunately this "restaurant" is not fit for purpose. You cannot see the menu due to bad lighting nor hear yourself think due to the horrible acoustics in the restaurant area. The wine list has a house red, house white and house rose available by glass, caraf or... More

The Jazz Bar is very upmarket with awesome food. On one occasion I ate the "Combination of Dutch Veal" - slowly cooked Dutch milked veal tenderloin and veal cheeks, mushroom and pistachio ragout, roasted pumpkin, veal jus - absolutely delicious! Another time I had the "Ricotta and spinach" also delicious followed by the Sticky toffee pudding (the delivery is entertaining... More

Disappointing. It's a nice bar, quite stylish with seating arranged to optimise the view of the stage and with dining tables off to one side. We went for dinner and the tenderloin with chunky fries and green beans (165dhs) was delicious. But, if I'm going to a *jazz* bar, then I would expect some, er, jazz. Instead there was a... More

Went here with friends on a busy Friday night to see the new band and it was a fantastic night! The band were absolutely brilliant, almost everyone was up dancing at some point and the DJ in the breaks played a great mix of music. The ambience was amazing. Ordered the cheese platter which was very good and also the... More

The band itself is quite entertaining. It's geared towards an older crowd (nothing past the year 2000 and I counted maybe two songs past 1990) but they perform with energy and enjoyment. The food itself feels like an old hotel putting together what they think are innovative dishes. For example, the starter was a trio of raw fish preparations, with... More

My 50th Birthday Private Party Celebration in Jazz Bar Hilton Abu Dhabi on 11/10/14 was amazing. The food was delicious. The service was outstanding. The Band was excellent. The general atmosphere was great. This would not be possible without the full support of the complex Manager.

At 21 a band usually Plays there - be Aware that you have to be there at least 30min before to still have a place where you can sit - otherwise youd have to stand. It's truly worth going there since the bands are incredible and it's an awesome atmosphere. Drinks and Food was delicious.
