“The best of the best”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

From the moment my girlfriend and I walked through the doors into the welcoming atmosphere of the bar. The staff put us both at ease and made one of the best mojito I have ever had. We were taken through to the main dining room where we were seated at the best table which was situated in front of the grill. Once at the table we were introduced to our personal waiter who had an excellent knowledge of the menu. Johnathon then spoke with confidence on the wine list and offered excellent choices to go with our food.

Starters went down a dream and tasted out of this world.

Main course

kobo tenderloin has to be the choice if you are a real conisure of meat! You even had the choice in the handle type you would lie to use for your meat.

Enza Cesari really leads from the front with team ensuring that the highest level of service is always being delivered in the restraurant and the excellet team spirit is very evident.

To evening was only topped when the team surprised us with a hand made card with a picture that they had taken earlier , cake with chocolate piped "10 year anniversary"

Thank you The Forge

“Exquisite....”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Have eaten here several times now and simply nothing to criticize. Wonderful steaks, service impeccable (and knowledgeable), choose your own steak knife with an explanation as to the different handles etc., (nice touch) and a fabulous selection of wines. Faultless.

“An amazing night out”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

A night at the Forge is akin to a wonderful bottle of red. The food is exquisite. We tried a variety of different items from the menu and both ate until we could hardly move. The sommelier was knowledgable and suggested wines that matched perfectly what we were eating. The manager, Enza, was hospitable, funny and attentive. Altogether, a great night out.

“Amazing steaks and service”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

On the last day in abu dhabi we again wanted to try some steaks , we opted for our friends recommendation and came here to " the forge " we just waked in , but we got an amazing table in the corner where we had a wall full of wine bottles ! For food we went for our servers recommendation, a crab cake to start , some kobe cuts for the mains and yes " The Alitao" the best dessert. Staff had a great knowledge for the food and wines, overall amazing food, and excellent chefs !! We dining again on our next visit !!
