I was privileged enough to be personally taken care of by Blue Grill's Chef de Cuisine and the very knowledgeable Sommelier during my first visit in this steakhouse. I was very surprised to see Chef Zlatko waiting for his guests outside of the restaurant so it was a very elating feeling to be personally escorted to your table and confidently... More

I can't say but good things from this awesome restaurant. The service since we get there was nothing less than welcome and friendly. They gave as a nice table and asked for some drinks to start before bringing the menu just 3 minutes after this.

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.

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.
