One of my favorite places for very good steaks in Abu Dhabi and the service is professional. Very wide selection of meat from different parts of the world. Highly recommended.

WOW!!!!! We loved it so much we are here twice. The steaks are prepared to perfection and while they offer sauces on the side, the steaks do not need the assistance. The service is amongst the best we've encountered in any establishment in UAE. Even if you are not a guest at the hotel, if you're looking for one of... More

We had a really nice dinner in this restaurant. Steak was one of the best I ever had (Wagyu)! My wife had a mixed seafood platter which was also delicious. The Service was attentive and friendly and made a nice recommendation for the food!! We will come again in our next vacation ;)

So this restaurant has an open kitchen. You can see everything going on. Well I watched the head chef sip some soup off of a spoon, put the rest back, resalt, and the use the same spoon to taste again. I don't care if the steak was good or not. In the U.S. This place would be shut down for... More

The Blue Grill and a good restaurant for those that enjoy good service, tasty food and their steaks. I have been several times and never been disappointed. Great bar and drinks selection to accompany the food.

Steaks are the best on the menu. It is a little pricey so if you're fortunate to have entertainer vouchers use them. No need for entrees as the size of the main is enough to fill you up.

Last minute decision to go to the blue grill. A very good decision it turned out to be! Lovely welcoming smile from the lady at reception. The service was impeccable. The food even better. T-bone steak cooked to perfection. A first as well was the veal chop something I have never seen. The Parmesan crusted topped mash potato was also... More

Iv'e been to Blue Grill a number of times. There are two things to say about the food here. One is that the steaks are in my opinion some of the best in Abu Dhabi. Second is that it's expensive. Having a Rotana card or using an Entertainer voucher is a good option when visiting this place.
