If expensive meals, stuffy atmosphere, and small tables is you thing, this is the place for you. Even though the steaks were delicious, you kind find better choices on food in Yas.

I had a best steak in my life. I ordered Australian black onyx rib eye steak and the Chef cooked it perfectly as i want. Ambiance is really classy and also how they set up the place is really outstanding. Service was impeccable , Arjay took an extra mile to assist us in everything we need. Definitely will come back.

These chefs know what they are doing and execute well. We have been to this resturant 3 times and it never fails to impress. Friendly helpful wait staff. King scallops were amazing. My husband has to have the steak every time. Wonderfully wines as well. ENJOY!

Had a truly awful meal here last night. Have eaten here on other occasions and found the food hit and miss but the service was ok. However, last night the food and service were just awful. The starters were bland and boring. The tenderloin steaks that we ordered "medium well, pink, no blood" arrived cremated beyond words. We could hardly... More

The Steak and Grill selection is good but overprized. You will find far better Steakhouse places for less money in Abu Dhabi. The restaurant does not create the best ambiente, while sitting outside you will feel like sitting beside the road with continues interruptions from people visiting the bar next door.
