We had a very nice time at this restaurant. Our mushroom risotto was heavenly. The Tiramisu was amazing. But the ravioli was really bad. It had no flavour. I mean if they can mess up a simple ravioli it reflects badly on the chef. You...know chef has messed up when they mess up simple dishes. Service was nice and staff attentive. It’s quite overpriced but view is nice.More

Terrible experience ! We went there for our Anniversary and my husband ordered the Steak Tartare amongst other things. Which Michelin Restaurant put mayonnaise in their steak tartare ! Absolutely terrible and making the meat extremely slimy and tasteless. Being French, trust me I have...had this many times and this was the worst steak tartare I have ever tasted in my life. When asked by our waitress my husband informed her that the meal was horrible and pushed it aside after two bites of it. She then proceeded to take away the plate. However when paying the bill we were charged for the Steak Tartare which is absurd and very arrogant ! This is in bad taste and highly disappointing. Who does that ?! We will definitely Not be rushing back there.More

I brought my family here (parents, wife and daughter) and I am Italian. I used to bring here my clients. The service this time was terrible. The waiter kept insisting I am Romanian, although I was explicitly asking to speak with someone who speaks Italian....Cacio e Pepe was done with parmigiano (it is supposed to be done with pecorino Romano, a specific kind of pecorino from Sardinia which has more seasoning and salt added in Rome). The waiters removed our wine once, and I stopped them as the glasses had wine left. Then I went to play with my little daughter and when I was back my parents were pissed and all our wine glasses disappeared. I asked to speak with someone who is Italian. It took me a while as they tried to let me speak with everyone else (although they were promising me to speak with someone who speaks Italian multiple times). Then, the only Italian speaking waiter came to me. He is nice and off course would have never endorsed something like this. The bottom line: avoid this place if you are Italian or you know what you can expect from an Italian restaurant. In bocca al lupo.More

Very overpriced, no atmosphere, over tentative safe, food mediocre! We were not given any time to browse the menu and rushed throughout the meal. Would not recommend.

Staff were not friendly which was unusual as we visited other branches of Cipriani around the world.. not recommend. We found a hair on one of the dishes under the veal they just apologized and say when “we serve it it wasn't there”

I've dined at cipriani 4 times now because I really like the ambiance. But the food is constantly dissappointing. It's almost like the chef thinks "the fatter the better". The grilled wagyus are drenched in oil, potato wedges on the side are 200 kcal each,...tortelloni were literally swimming in butter. Black cod was also very fatty and oily. Tempura shrimp was good.. Cipriani needs to urgently reconsider it's cooking and also make sure that table clothes are ironed the current ones look like linen out of a washing machine Generally Cipriani needs to seriouslyMore

We came to this restaurant to try it for the first time and everything looked amazing the place is cozy and stylish. While ordering food everything seemed fine until the staff were giving off a bit sassy energy which did come off rude. After the...food arrived it looked delicious but taste wise to be honest could have been way better. It really downgraded our expectations in this place, so not worth the money! half of the things we asked for came took time to arrive. Overall wasn’t blown away by my experience.More

Restaurant too large . Lighting too bright. Wholly soulless & lacking atmosphere . Staff try overly hard to oversell rather than focussing on pleasing the clientele .Unlike Zuma, La Petit Maison & others this is a really poor version of C London save for charging...like the light brigade. Do what you do best & stop straying from the proven successes. Our favourite dish , a house staple in London, Miami etc of Chicken curry & rice was simply not to be found & the staff refused to make it. Besides the world famous recipe is on the web, so simply ‘cut & paste’ it.Surely you are there to please the clientele. An authentic Italian like Cipriani /C London with sushi on the menu is simply not right . Focus on what you are good at & stop trying to be all things to all people. Strongly recommend giving this restaurant a wide berth.More

One of our favorite restaurants in Abu Dhabi, over the years their quality has always stayed the same, this time was no different. When the weather is nice always great to sit outside overlooking Yas Marina. Their bread to start with is amazing, we had...the burrata to share plus the calamari, both dishes were amazing. Pizza and risotto were the main and again absolutely delicious. Deserts we went for the tiramisu and the Pantone, 😋 very yummy. Service was excellent so always recommend this place.More

Ok, so after living in abu dhabi and dubai for 7.5 years, i have wanted to go for dinner to cipriani’s but delayed it.. tonight was my best friend’s birthday and decided to go as a group; i am not happy with the experience at...all.. so obviously it’s overpriced but that is fair if the food is good which wasn’t the case; pasta was undercooked, and when asked about the salad portions, they replied that it’s normal and should be enough, the salad, been overpriced was so tiny and lacked seasoning, bare in mind that we were 13 ladies and each ordered their own dishes but then later on talked about it. The staff weren’t all hospitable and when asked if there were any dairy free lactose free options, they replied “no!” Without coming up with solutions for the guests and that for me is beyond unprofessional !!! Ok so the bill comes and they charged us fir the complimentary bread and olives, that was a major disappointment and i either ask whomever reads this from cipriani to re-evaluate the whole place down, and/ or a future guest to watch out. Truly, A foodie and a dear reviewer. XxMore

We booked Cipriani as we wanted to try a new restaurant that we hadn’t been to - we wish we hadn’t bothered! The restaurant was pretty empty when we arrived and the waiting staff were very attentive. This soon became ‘over attentive’ as every time...we put something down on the table that was empty they removed it as soon as it left our hands. We felt like we were being watched the whole time, which didn’t lend itself to a relaxing family dinner. We ordered salads to start which were very overpriced. The beetroot salad, if you really really like beetroot was fine, as that was all it was with a few asparagus shavings and a small amount of goats cheese on the top. I like beetroot but didn’t want to eat the equivalent of 2 whole large beetroots! We had to slow the service down several times as it seemed like they wanted us out asap - the restaurant was filling up but not overly busy. For the mains we ordered pizza, ravioli and gnocchi. Well, we laughed when they arrived. The pizza was good that my son ordered, my ravioli was deflated and almost looked like a pattern on the plate! My husband’s gnocchi looked like Mac and cheese and the most expensive version of this he’d ever had! To us this did not represent top quality Italian food. Don’t get me wrong we don’t mind paying for good food, but only if it’s worth it. The manager did replace my ravioli with a pizza, so I didn’t leave hungry. It is not a restaurant that we will recommend to any of our friends or return to. We were very disappointed customers.More

This review is for the Marina Mall location of Cipriani Dolci. We had a bad experience with our service, especially the gentleman who checked us out - we do not have his name but he was Arabic. He belittled by insinuating that how are we...“paying” by credit cards - saying “do we even have cards”. Not sure if he was trying to be funny but this is not a place to be joking around. After asking 3 times for the bill, he finally brought it to us - mind you, he was just idling around when asked for the bill. Also, the manager I assume (man in black suit) gave us a free Vanilla Merengue on top of one that we had ordered, and this waiter took that away also. This was a horrendous experience and we will not be returning. CHECK #105226 * Karen was our initial waitress who took our order and she was fantastic. Not sure where she went after, but I am assuming her shift was done.More
