What a beautiful restaurant. Great atmosphere. Outstanding service and delicious food! I would give it a 9 out of 10, because they need to upgrade their beer selection. Guys a German beer would be awesome 😉More

We went for an offer..unlimited Braii and add on package of drinks for AED 99 Check the days available as it will change now the weekend has changed to Saturday / Sunday. Food was excellent… Fillet Streak, Ribs, Chicken and Sausage with one side…you can...have as much meat as you want. Drinks are limited to Red and White Wine, Gin and Vodka…which is not made clear as it says selected house beverages…but they were free flowing for 3 hours. Overall by Dubai prices excellent value. Food was great Service and staff excellent.More

Drunk african guest loud on speaker phone for 2 hours. Drunk african lady falling on walls and also nothing done about it. Felt like some cheap pub. Nothing done about it despite 2 tables complaining. At 10 pm garbage bags taken out from the bar...dumped on the floor by our table. Service 3 star. Food good. Not going back despite the fact we were regular for years.More

I requested them for the Argentinian filet 350 grams which they charge about usd 100. I could not eat it as it was very bad quality, requested it to be replaced, and they replaced it with a rib eye steak which was good. I asked...them to use an Entertainer coupon and instead of removing a main course, they removed a 70 dirham starter, I had to point it out to them and they revised the bill. Many better options in town if you are looking for an African steakhouse like The Butcher shop or The Meat and Co or Tribes.More

My husband and I visited City Grill to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we’re amazed at not only the quality of food, but also the service. The staff made our night extra special with an amazing performance. This is easily one of, if not the...best restaurant experience we’ve ever had. I cannot recommend this place enough! Such a warm and welcoming environment!More

We went to city grill for a Braai meal I have to say it was a really disappointing and bad meal no sausages as stated I got the wrong steak and the drinks package was very poor. I spoke to the manager who really didn’t...seem to care. GIVE IT A MISS REALLY NOT WORTH THE MONEY OR TIME extremely disappointing we spend a lot of time in Dubai and this was probably the worst experience we have ever had food wise 😩😩More
