This use to be probably the best steak restaurant in Abu Dhabi, the service use to be impeccable from your booking until you left. Sadly times have changed, insufficient staff all the niceties have gone, no bread starter, table mats, delay in ordering, menu changed. Very sad I use to recommend this restaurant to everybody and used it many times... More

We were quite regular customers at the Blue Grill and are Rotana card members. We were always pleased with the steak house and took visitors there. The service was always good and food always very good. We went there last night and the standards have dropped considerably. The apparent 'casual dining' reduction from fine dining is not at all reflected... More

Did not pre-book but we were seated immediately. It is a large restaurant so there is always room for walk-ins. One of the good things is being able to bring your drink from the Y Bar through to the restaurant s they are adjoining. The staff are very attentive and are extremely knowledgeable regarding the menu which was a relief... More

Had a fantastic meal here recently for our anniversary dinner. Chef Damien came and gave us his recommendations and they didn't disappoint. Crab cakes were delicious and feta salad with pomegranate and pecans also fantastic. Chateaubriand was great value and cooked beautifully. All the ingredients were top notch including the gorgeous asparagus spears. We even made room for a lovely... More

Very friendly and attentive staff from first moment. Clean and comfortable atmosphere. The food was excellent! Little bit of a wait but was fairly busy. A bit pricey but well worth it. Would definitely go back again. Cheers!

We've been Blue Grill regulars for over 3 years, but after last night's experience we won't set foot in the place again. The ambiance has gone - it's now more brightly lit than a works canteen. The no children policy seems to have been abandoned - this used to be one of the precious, rare child-free dining experiences in the... More

New year new menu at the Blue Grill. I have reviewed this place many time, so my comments are only about the menu today. Earth and Water is the theme. Starters, main, grilled and sides split between seafood and meat. You can spend the evening deciding, not because there are too many dishes, but because the selection is focused and... More
