“An unexpectedly pleasant experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

I have been here a few times - mostly as a get together place for work related events such as birthdays and going away parties - and after 3 visits i have to say, the service is commendable! Most of the establishments in "high end" districts such as DIFC tend to be inhospitable environments. But the drinks were served quickly and reasonably priced, and i find the atmosphere quite "cosy" despite it's hall-type design. It's not a quiet watering hole, but if you're looking for a place with classic decor, open spaces and a little more energetic than your average pub, this is the spot you're looking for!

“Nice place but extremely expensive!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Visited this bar recently and while the food was very good and the service was up to scratch, the skyhigh prices really put me off. Pints of heineken were AED44 plus there is a 10% tax that they add on to your bill at the end. There is much better value to be had in the surrounding area. As I visited during Ramadan, there was no live music on but I hear they have some good live jazz but unfortunately I won't be back to hear it.

“Ramadan Haven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Great food and varied menu and a fantastic atmosphere. We took our visiting family a couple of times as open daily during Ramadan and as smokers they appreciated it. Will certainly make this a local in future.

“best service in Dubai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

went to The Gramercy in DIFC. must say , in Dubai we are used to average service ....here its really different. staff are attentive, know their menu and drinks and ask the right questions.our waiter was from South Africa , Johnny and he was great. could see well liked by other staff and customers too. the manageress came over and asked if all was good and even cleared our table. she also greeted many customers with a hug and kiss .. so I guess they come regularly.
the fillipino staff was also very friendly. The food was great , bit pricy but then I heard that DIFC in general is expensive . all in all a good experience and highly recommend this venue

“Nice place for British food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The Gramercy is a nice gastro-bar, located in the DIFC. Established in 2010, this place has a nice decoration, with sofas and chairs depending where you sit. During the day, The Gramercy is more a restaurant where you can eat delightful cuisine and during the night also a restaurant but the bar is also crowdy and you can listen to jazz music and live entertainement shows or concert. Also a small terrasse is available.

Hopefully, the restaurant is opened during the Ramadan for lunch, which is good because a lot are closed at midday

I went with a colleague and we both choose the veal escalope, with salads and french fries.
Service was quick, the escalope was very big (could not finish, see picture), french fries also excellent.
Also to mention the good bread brought to table with salt butter.

Nice place to have a good moment at midday and the evening to have drinks or to eat something. Also to mention that they have famous brunch on Friday
