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

We stayed in the Yas Island Rotana so thought we would try the Blue Grill. Very nice venue, lovely food. The service was not quite up to scratch. Very slow, and when we asked for a bottle of water it never appeared. We had a booth. How they expect people with skirts or dresses on to get in these booths... More

Had dinner with a group of 8 and we all had steak and these are good. Just one thingy: although I ordered medium/rare my steak was clearly medium and another one was well done instead of medium. Beside this little hick up everything else was great. Efficient staff; good atmosphere; soft music so we could have a good conversation with... More

We had dinner here twice in a few days time, staying at some nearby hotels. Great service and great food as well. Good variety of different meat (Angus, Dutch Veal, Australian Wagyu) but also Surf & Turf combo and various other options. Highly recommended.

First time back to the Blue Grill after a couple of years, and it is amazing as always! Great services as one would expect and the steaks are awesome, may be even better than before. One tip, if you are an early bird, you can enjoyed a reduced menu for half price on weeknight if you order before 7pm! Enjoy.

Having been to Blue Grill a lot over the years, in fact there on the opening night there are certain touches that make the experience at the restaurant... unfortunately we missed out on most of them.. so the experience started to go downhill early on when other guests were given the amuse bouche and we didn't - "invisible customer..."

One of the best steak houses in Abu Dhabi, and my favourite. Everything is perfect, the steaks, the food, the drinks and the service. You'll be wanting to tip for a great meal and service! The meals are not the regular fare, with a much better range and flavours. If you're a steak lover you must not miss the BLUE... More

We ate here twice during our 7 day stay. Patrick our server was amazing (Everyone else at the Yas Rotana was forgettable at best) Everything about Blu was great. Loved that we could watch the entire kitchen. All the food especially the Waygu steak was amazing! Hated that you could smoke in the restaurant >:(
