Have had a steak from Blue Grill at the Y Bar and was really disappointed; tough, tasteless and incorrectly cooked. However, ordered the chicken at the Blue Grill and it was fabulous. My Mom had the salmon and was also really happy. Made the mistake of ordering a kind of banoffee pie for desert and it was awful! Overly sweet,... More

A beautiful, peaceful yet vibrant restaurant over Yas Island way. Myself and my partner popped along on after having the restaurant recommended. So glad we did. The restaurant does not allow children under a certain age so the restaurant is peaceful romantic and the focus on food and service is paramount. The open kitchen can be observed from your seat....

Love this place and have been half a dozen time in the last few years. Whilst I've enjoyed other great steaks elsewhere in Abu Dhabi I don't think anywhere provides the same value for money, combined with quality and excellent service. For example, unlike elsewhere they don't charge extra for chips/potatoes and the chocolates served in ice at the end... More

What a nice surprise. We popped in for a inopportune meal and where suitably rewarded. The steak is a must, service was good, ambience was good, a little pricey buts it's a great restaurant and its Abu Dhabi. A very nice eating experience indeed.

We have visited many times and it never fails to impress. Excellent steaks cooked exactly as requested. We prefer no seasoning whatsoever, which is unusual so they double checked with us when the chef was about to start the grilling which gave us added confidence. Choices are limited during the F1 weekend, although quality is still outstanding.

We were recommended Blue Grill by friends and colleagues. Our visit was disappointing and embarrassing for our invited business guest couple. Some of the staff were extremely friendly but there were the odd few who seemed to have a poor attitude towards us. We ordered 4 tenderloin steaks medium well-done. The steak didn't come as ordered and was returned twice.... More

The Blue Grill specialises in steaks of your choice in quality and quantity and you can see these being cooked in the open kitchen. Our group of five stuck mainly to the steak choice the one exception plumping for the trio of salmon. All were delighted with their choice. The wine list was extensive but also fairly expensive.
