Good quality food at a price

Good service, very pleasant surroundings, but the food does not quite meet the standards suggested by the price. It does not compare to a Ruths Chris steakhouse in the US, for example (although I think they would like to). The menu tries hard, but I do not think that the chefs construct the... read more

Amazing experience, the food is amazing along with portions and the selection of wine, i had the prime rib and asked for exactly what they brought me. The waiter not only was polite and knowledgeable but we had fun ordering! It really made me feel like home. Top class - I would definitely recommend Meat Co to anyone who knows... More

There is not much to say except, that it was a perfect piece of meat and the sides were done to perfection. Hospitality is the game they know to play. Great location, great view, great meat.

The Meat Company was a nice place to eat. They had a great selection, but they are very expensive. I paid ~400 dirham ($100) for my ribeye. The steak was cooked the way I ordered it and tasted wonderful, but I am not sure it was worth the money.

We had a reservation for 35 people in our tour group. And we all placed individual orders from the menu, so I was a bit concerned about how long this was going to take. No problems, they had us out of there in a very reasonable amount of time. I ordered the Caesar salad, the burger, and the cream brulee... More

As a resident of Abu Dhabi I have been to this restaurant a few times. Unfortunately I have noticed a deterioration of service and quality. The location is nice and you can certainly enjoy the outside areas in the 3 months of the year that you can venture outdoors. However, my most recent visit on Wednesday night, I was certainly...

No doubting the quality of the steaks here though prices are on par with the best hotel steakhouses. You can get very quickly carried away with your steak choice. A little more info in the menu regarding how all the different countries cuts differ would of been good. Steak was very well cooked but at these prices include the sauce... More

My wife and went here after visiting the restaurant with a larger group of friends a few months earlier. However, the setting felt much more romantic with just the two of us sitting near the window with a beautiful view of the waterway just a stones throw away. We both ordered steaks ( I ordered the peppered one) cooked to... More
