“It was amazing!”

Not disappointed. The Conrad is fab in every way and the grill was the cherry on top. I liked the staff. They were courteous and knew their menu well. The presentation was great and the atmosphere was equally great. Loved it. If in dubai, you Must give it a try....

“MPW Grill at The Conrad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Saturday April 5th we enjoyed a lovely dinner at Marco Pierre White Grill in the The Conrad. We were greeted with a friendly genuine smile by the hostess and escorted to a nice small table in a cozy area of the dining room. We started with 2 glasses of perfectly chilled Prosecco served by the sommelier, Matthew. I had a nicely grilled organic tenderloin with red wine sauce accompanied by frites and veggies. The steak was well cooked and tasty with the sauce. A glass of Chateau Cantemerle completed the plate. My wife had a small smoked duck salad which was fresh crisp greens with smoky tender pieces of duck and a tangy dressing. A glass of Bourgogne rouge went nicely with my duck. My wife also sampled the frites which were the big surprise of the night - addictively delicious. The service staff was very good, there when we needed them, without being cloying, and served us with confidence and precision. The restaurant decor is unique and artistic in presentation, modern lighting, rustic brick walls, a modern open working kitchen and polished marble floors. The ambiance is very comfortable with music that is loud enough to hear but still have comfortable conversation. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the meal and high level of service and would recommend if you live in or are visiting Dubai. Easy to find and worth it.

“Excellent Food, Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

An avid steak lover, I had to give a shot to the new kid on the block, Marco Pierre White at The Conrad. Arriving on a Thursday night, the restaurant was surprisingly quiet so we were able to get a nice table. Started off with the crab appetizer which was refreshing and flavorful and moved on to some filets- my steak was a tad undercooked but the flavor was fantastic (as was my partners). The sommelier was very personable and offered a great suggestion for the steaks we were having. Live entertainment showed up late which was a bit of a dissapointment because it definately added to the ambience, but overall the experience was very nice and we'd probably return. Not sure if I'd put it on the level of Exchange Grill or The Rib Room just quite yet, but it certainly has potential. Definately make a stop at the wine bar (Cave) before dining- great spot with an interesting vibe!

“A great addition to the Dubai restaurant scene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

My wife and I ate here last night and were both very happily surprised at how good it was. We have been to 2 of Marco Pierre White's other Dubai establishments with mixed results, but this one has done it just about right.

We were pleasantly greeted and seated, and then re-seated at our request. As with many such restaurants, the physical size of the menu is inversely proportionate to the number of items in it. But there is plenty to chose from here. The wine list was impressive - certainly in terms of Australian wine - but not much under Dh 350 a bottle.

Wife had the signature prawn cocktail and I had the beef carpaccio with foie gras. Both were delicious. Only minor issue was the speed at which they were served; a rare complaint that it was too quick. We had just received our mojitos and the bread and started arrived in a dead heat. I feared we would be out of there in no time whereas we wanted to savour the experience.

We went steak for mains (they have Australian, Arcadian and USDA) and three cuts of each to choose from. I had the Aussie strip loin and my wife the Aussie tenderloin and we shared triple cooked fries (to die for), mushrooms and a green salad. The meat was cooked perfectly to order. But the most amazing aspect was the pepper sauce. Really. Not a peppercorn in sight, no cream, just dark liquid pepper. Brilliant.

Dessert was apple tart tatin for me and lemon tart for her. Both delicious. The tart tatin was something of a derivation of the French classic - no layering of thin slices of apples, rather a caramelised stewed small apple sitting on a bit of pastry. But the highlight was the "pistachio trifle" which accompanied it and which was a lovely blend of icy and creamy.

We had a cocktail to start, a bottle of Dh 560 wine, and 2 amaretto to finish for a bill of around Dh 1500.

The service was generally excellent, well trained staff (except for the "maamsir" from the Filipino waitress) and very friendly. The open kitchen is interesting for the guest(s) at each table facing it. The chef's table/private dining room looks well positioned. The decor is great. The fact that the bar/lounge area which is open to the restaurant permits smoking is disappointing and leads to the odd waft of second hand smoke in the dining area.

Overall, we had a great meal. In a city where so many restaurants promise so much and deliver so little, I think it is a welcome change.
