I need to say long time I didn't have such a good meal like in a Blue Grill restaurant. I come to Abu Dhabi during the IDEX exhibition and we stay near by this place. I have dinner 3 nights in a row with my colleagues and this was my best meal ever. As I noticed every night restaurant was... More

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

if you haven't already tried it .. make it a 'must do' visit in 2015 ... the quality of the steak is amazing .. every time it has been cooked to perfection.

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.

I visited the Blue Grill during an event called Gourmet week, where internationally renowned chefs from Europe and Asia visit Yas and display their culinary skills. I ordered the 3 course taster and it was thoroughly impressively. Good wine, appetizer, steak cooked to perfection, healthy desert, beautiful presentation. To top it all off, chef Mark from Ireland, visited my table... More

this used to be our favourite restaurant in town but last time we've been there despite the price remain really high the service is seems not to be at the same standard where it used to be. We asked for more bread which has never arrived, we've asked for more drinks which they arrived when the plates were already empty.... More

The mark of any service or restaurant in my opinion is being able to deliver their product in a consistent manner no matter what it is. The Blue grill exceeds this every time I visit, it appears to get better each time and I cannot wait to get back. The staff are knowledgeable in the menu and wine list &... More

We had a fantastic experience at The Blue Grill. Having already tried a number of Abu Dhabi's other premier steak restaurants (55 & 5th, The Forge, BOA), our standards were high. The Blue Grill did not disappoint. The food was all at a very strong standard - excellent crab cakes, superb steaks, high quality lobster and a really good selection... More
