The location is nice. The furniture looks elegant but is extremely uncomfortable and is not efficient enough in use to live up the elegant look. The food is below average when considering it’s fine dining. The tuna tartare and carpaccio were tough to chew on....The scallops had good texture but it was tasteless. Both the pasta dishes were quite greasy and really incites massive heart burns, really nothing fine about the pasta. The silverware were callous and really is not what you expect in fine dining, for Dessert we were given a big tablespoons instead of dessert spoons etc. Normally I am not such a pretentious complainer but with the hefty price tag and poor quality of the ingredients I couldn’t help, i really expected better. The service was good, but then I saw an added service charge. So For the high priced menu nothing was good. Or maybe to be fair was not good enough for the “fine dining” that they portray themselves to be. Very disappointed.More

The view was nice (with those prices, it better be) and the service was good (thankfully as they add a charge for their service). The place looks classy when you walk in, but the seats are terribly uncomfortable, sagging in when you sit on them...leaving the bar to dig in to your leg. I even saw a ripped chair on the balcony. Now the food was just bad as well. The pasta was super oily. I don’t usually get heartburn, but I did after this. Couldn’t sleep all night. The scallops lacked flavour. The carpaccio was supposed to melt in our mouth, but it was a little chewy. The dessert was good at least, but they gave giant soup spoons to eat it with. Kind of bizarre really. We will not come again.More

Horrible new management. We were loyal customers for few years. I loved to come with my small son. New management ignored me at the entrance 5 minutes before opening and when I entered he though us outside. Before management was welcoming us even if we...come few minutes earlier. When I mentioned I will not come again he just wished me a “lovely evening”. Now I understand why they are always empty.More

The food was terrible, I didn’t have a single proper italian dish! I ordered a risotto that was full of ghee and a lobster spaghetti that smelled awful. The staff was rude and very disrespectful. I don’t recommend it!!

I’ve heard about Cipriani many times. Last Saturday I finally had the chance to go (Grazie Federico). It is by far the best restaurant I have been in Abu dhabi. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The entire facility is kept spotlessly clean. Excellent service....I would like to thanks the whole team, specially to Nicholas. He made special creations for us, offering the best views of the restaurant. He was able to advise us on the best choices. Food is served in an appropriate time frame.I felt welcome Thanks, great experience!More

I went to celebrate a special occasion. The service was top notch, starting from the selection of the table. A family was about to leave the table with the best view, and our host Nicholas suggested we would wait at a table nearby and then...move to that table. So we did. He was caring from the very beginning. Every detail was covered, not only our water glasses were never empty, he also served ice in my water glass when I was not looking. He suggested our appetizer, that we loved. He always gave us smiles and made us feel welcome, at home. It felt so good to have dinner at Cipriani, and Nicholas felt like our guardian angel. Great location, great service. Great staff.More

Great for Romantic dinner for two in the evening. One of the best locations in town - the views and the marina lights are amazing. Food quality is OK, but extremely expensive for the Japanese - Italian fusion. Now we sampled it, I would not...go again. We also sampled the bar Iris downstairs, that place saved the day - worth the visit and happy hour on Saturday’s before 9pmMore

This weekend me and my friend were lucky to visit Cipriani. According to my booking request , we were provided with a table by the window with a beautiful view of the yas marina. it should be noted that the atmosphere is classic and elegant....The stuff was friendly and cheerful. Special thanks to our waiter Pavel for his recommendations and high-level service. From the food we liked the pasta with veal, it was fresh and homemade. And vanilla gelato was delicious.
