Great experience with good service

Good restaurant with great service. First time trying wagyu tenderloin which was excellent. Price with wine was a little bit on the high side but we had a good experience with. Ah! And the Tomatoes on the Tomato and Mozzarella salad were simply amazing.

Blue grill is an excellent restaurant for steaks, and wine selection. I've had a full three course meal here so I'll try to be as descriptive as possible. However, keep in mind I am very picky and strict on my reviews. Appetizer: I had the calamari while my wife had the French soup. Let me start with the calamari; these... More

This was a lesson number xxxx for not having too high expectations in advance according to ads. When the standard of pricing is this high, one is supposed to deserve service of same level. The menu was diverse enough and food was prepared properly, but tastes were soulless, somehow conveyor style. Though the night was not a busy one, the... More

We arrived at 7 and we're quickly seated. The place was about one quarter full, but we did call ahead for reservations. Nice upscale atmosphere, but not posh. Patrick was our server and did a stellar job. We both ordered filet mignon with 2 sides which were included in the price of the steak, while an additional item was ordered,... More

I have been so lucky to spend over one month on this place having dinner very night. This is possibly the most fair review on a restaurant. The menu offers meat and fish grill with few vegetarian options. I have tasted all the items in the menu over time and i can assure no one of them will delude you.... More

We had a meal for 2, 2 steaks, a few sides bottle of vino and a beer = AED 800, not worth the money as nothing about the steak wow'ed us. Side dishes were tiny and pretty tasteless food to be honest. Grabbed a burger on the way home!!.....yup that bad! I'd say Gaucho in Dubai is much much better...... More

Top quality in every respect. From the moment you walk in you are well looked after. The selection of steak is first class. There are alternative meats, chicken, lamb and seafood, to select from. The 'Butcher's Platter' is a real challenge. The restaurant carries an extensive wine list. The amuse-bouche is a nice touch. Children under eight are not allowed... More
