The food is good, not amazing, but good. Good service, good choice of sides and potato. Steak was cooked as ordered. Nice ambiance although the place was empty when we went there. The only reason I didn't give it a higher rating is the lack of liquor license as we really like a nice red wine with our steak meals. I've had better in Abu Dhabi from Blue Grill and The Meat Co. but 18 oz. isn't bad. Entertainer 2013 has vouchers which will help with the cost.

I went there two times. Restaurant decor is cool but with no scenic view. Service is very good. meat quality is top notch. the cook is great. price is a little bit on the high side. however, comparing to competitors it falls in the same range. I would definitely return there.

Had dinner last week there with friends, it was absolutely fantastic. Quiet evening with very nice interior and a well served menu. The menu is very simple as you need to choose your meat and your sides. The chef is an artist when it comes to the way he grills his meat. With herbs, garlic and other ingredients that you will taste in your steak, your mouth will be watering. A special advice for all who goes there, take the desert CHOCOLATE FUDGE cake slow cooked. A piece of heaven that gives a new dimension to desert.

Will always go there.

They don't have a very extensive menu and on the night we were there many of the dishes, some five or six, were not available, including the ostrich steak, which was the main reason we went there.
Nevertheless, we opted for alternative dishes and were not disappointed. Our tender bay scallops and grilled asparagus starters were excellent, as were the (Australian) lamb chops, four huge, fat, deliciously succulent chops - the best we've ever had anywhere! Food doesn't come cheap but it is excellent quality. Also a very professional service from our friendly waiter.
As already mentioned, such a shame that there is no alcohol at the moment, as this is primarily a steak and meat house and you do miss a good glass of red wine, but we were told that they have re-applied for their licence which they think will be granted shortly.

I took my wife here for her birthday.
They gave us an 8" cake to celebrate and take home - complimentary.

The steak is UNBELIEVEABLE!!! Although it is on the pricey side, its worth every penny.
This comes very close to the best steaks I've ever had. (The best goes to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada)

Definitely one of the best steakhouses in Abu Dhabi.
Don't miss your chance. Get the Cowboy steak!
The atmosphere is a bit dull, and for those who drink there is no alcohol (but they did say they will get the license soon).
Its on the Abu Dhabi Entertainer as well, so buy one get one free entree!!!

Two three four million thumbs up!!!
