Quality place to dine with significant other or business partners. Sides are extra and a bit pricey.

I find it hard to believe that there is a single poor review for the Blue Grill. We frequent this restaurant and can honestly say that they serve the best steak in the UAE. The service is impeccable every time and the staff are friendly and welcoming. Recommended to visit if you're ever on Yas Island and visiting the Rotana.

Very busy when we arrived which is a good sign. I ordered the calamari to start and have to say it was the worst I've ever had, they looked like donuts there was that much batter around them. Things didn't get much better with the steaks, sorry but if this is good I don't want to see average, too much... More

Coming here for years and never let us down. Always great food. Service/staff is personal, friendly and professional. Good value for money for quality food and wine. Being a Rotana Rewards member makes it even a better experience with huge discounts on food and beverages. A must visit for a good dining experience when or living in Abu Dhabi.

Excellent food quality. Not just the meat but everything, the desserts, wines... The staff is very friendly, attentive and discreet. We were served on time and we really enjoyed the taste of the meat. This is now my new favourite steakhouse in Abu Dhabi!

It doesn't surprise me that Blue Grill is regarded highly on TA.

It was with some trepidation therefore that we made our debut visit to Blue Grill. We needn't have worried at all! Service... More
