“nice place, good food !”
Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

We went there during a business trip. The mall is quite strange (with amazing diffrences in the shops) we tried this restaurant and it was a great experience : nice turning view, good food and staff nice.
Prices were correct if we consider the big picture.

“Pretty Impressive”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Firstly would like to agree with all those who have praised the staff here, truly excellent from start to finish and the setting on the 63rd floor is great. We decided to have the tasting menu (AED 550 per person) which had some great dishes ( salad starter, wagu, halibut, crab, ice cream) and a couple that were just ok. Extensive wine list on the I pod - like most places in Abu Dhabi expensive. Bill for two AED 1,900. Would definitley visit again for the overall experience and just swap a couple of items on the tasting menu which the staff said can be done.

“Quest is Best”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Oh Jumeirah Etihad Towers - how do I love thee? Let me count the ways: Brasserie Angelique, Scott's and now Quest.

Hubby and I booked a table for 2 this past Thursday evening to celebrate nothing in particular and to check out this restaurant that was getting such rave reviews from friends here in the capital.

The outrageously beautiful elevator takes mere seconds to deliver you to the 63rd floor. Look to your left and there's a breathtaking view of the sprawling grounds of Emirates Palace. To your right is a smiling hostess, ready to take you to your table. Great start!

Don’t be dismayed by the bizarre layout of the restaurant. For a "view" destination, 75% of the potential panorama is obscured by private dining rooms, as well as the bar, washroom and elevator placement. The kitchen is square in the middle of the space and the floor to ceiling windows are bracketed by large black granite slabs. Weird. But hey we were there for the food and, at the very least the place doesn’t rotate.

We started with a drink at the little bijoux of a bar. Tony the bartender mixed a perfect martini (not easy to find here in Abu Dhabi) and the moment Hira arrived with the champagne trolley, I knew I was in a happy place. Truffled popcorn and five spice cashews only further confirmed this.

Chef Benjamin’s pan-asian creations are spell-binding and ridiculously delicious. From the fun-popping amuse bouche to the sambucca sorbet prepared table-side we were delighted. Chef even surprised us with a complimentary nibble of caviar. Well, thank you very much! Hira’s wine recommendations from the refreshingly extensive list were spot on. He even pasted the bottle’s label to a card for our future reference.

What really stands out at Quest is the service. The quality of service in Abu Dhabi has vastly improved since we first arrived six years ago. Quest is at the forefront of that progress and it is a pleasure indeed to have a dining experience with such culinary delights and attention to detail as befits the bill. Bravo! Can’t wait to return to try the full tasting menu!

“FOOD AND CITY VIEW”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Formal, elegant restaurant at the top of the super luxury Ethiad Tower. Food is Pan Asian, very good and very special. Service is perfect and the view is fantastic ( most of the tables are by the window, but ask for it during your reservation).
