Highly recommended steak place in Abu Dhabi with good selection of meats and lovely salt options. A little pricey but worthwhile.

When you go to a steak restaurant and they don't know how to cook a steak you're going to have problems. I asked for pink with no blood and it arrived well done. They offered to cook another one and came 15 mins later med to well. By then my partner had finished her salmon (which she enjoyed) it totally... More

Looking for great steak house with excelent service? This is it. Never dissapointed, we ate here as a group of 8 in June, we all throughly enjoyed the food (2 course) and excelent red wine. The serving team did a great job too. It is a little pricy but dont let that put you off, it is worth it.

After many years dining in this restaurant ...this evening they wouldn't let me in! My husband was wearing dress shorts and smart shirt and that wasn't good enough to get in. Shame, we wanted to enjoy scollops and steak and wine! I live locally and would come back weekly ... Not now! Made to feel a 2nd class citizen ...... More

Had another lovely evening with my wife, this time we enjoyed the crab cakes and Fois Gras, followed by the Wagyu Steak and the potter house, both were suculant cuts and with the lovely topped sauces of black pepper and bearnaise sauce. Washed down with a bottle of Grande Cuvee. Very pleasant as usual, only wish the service was not... More

Last year we ate at Blue Grill and loved it! This year we were kind of disappointed! The steak (Rib eye) was chewy-tough and the butcher platter was tenderloin and strip loin was also chewy. It was definitely not worth it for the money we spent!! :(
