“cleaned our plates!”
Reviewed August 12, 2010

We had a really good meal here, but again, despite it being the middle of their winter people we eating outside ( albeit wrapped in blankets) .
Luckily we were inside and not in a draft so we could relax and enjoy the super food.
Between us we had sticky ribs and onion rings, a vegetarian platter with pumpkin in filo, mash, cheese in parcels, stuffed mushrooms, spinach puree and onion rings, a sirloin steak with chips and for dessers ice cream with choc sauce and brandy pudding - all of it was delicious and good value.
A great place to people watch and very friendly, cheerful staff

“very tasty food, well presented”
Reviewed May 29, 2010

The City Grill is in the midst of a line of restaurants vying for custom. I visited for lunch. The food was excellent and the service was good. They have an interesting menu and a good wine list. Well worth a visit if you’re at the Waterfront.

“Never Again!”
Reviewed December 4, 2009

Did anything go right at the time of our visit - no!
The champagne had no bubbles - it ws replaced with a fresh glass!
I had the wrong starter which I returned for replacement!
Waitress blamed and replaced but this made no difference!
Drinks took an age to arrive!
My husband had the wrong main course - he had ordered a Game skewer and ended up with a mixed grill - lamb chops etc. on a skewer. At this point we gave up and asked for the bill and, guess what, received the wrong bill!!!!
When the waiter came to collect the money he asked whether we had enjoyed out meal!!!!

“Great food”
Reviewed September 15, 2009

We went to this restaurant recommended by a friend. What a wonderful experience. I had filet steak and my wife had seafood plotter (small). The filet was melting in my mouse. My wife was extremely satisfied with her dish too. We have been living in Abu Dhabi for a while, the price in this restaurent is fast-food cheap. We ended up going back twice during our stay.
