    Fillet steak was fatty and tough. Very expensive for what was offered. The waiter was trying to be friendly but a lot of jokes came off poorly and left us in awkward situations. Much better restaurants in Dubai around the same price range

    We had a great time. All the waiters were friendly and helpful. The only down side is the food and drinks took so long to come out.

    A sprawling lobby and bar with only a handful of people. Confused guests asking where everybody went. Elegant, but empty hallways. These are the scenes CNN observed inside the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, this month as the once-humming destination confronts a new reality without its namesake in the White House.

    What a let down after hearing great things about this place. Dunes outside on the patio which had no view at all and no music, just noise from the air conditioning vents. Service was fine but the food was fair a best with steaks more like that from an “Outback Steakhouse” rather than anything fancy. A typical tourist hotel restaurant which was good value on the Monday night special but I wouldn’t return, even on a Monday.

    The feed was okay and the service was good. But the restaurant is looking very old and outdated with a cold atmosphere. We went in the evening and we just found the restaurant to be a bit dark. The steak selection was good and the meat was well prepared. But that's about it, the starters were nothing special and not too exciting. At start we got a complementary chicken liver pate and some bread, but it was not appealing and the bread was some basic low quality bread. Maybe something more authentic baked by the restaurant would have been better.

    We’re on Holiday here in Dubai and the restaurant is in the hotel complex, we booked before we arrived based on the positive reviews, we were not disappointed, in fact our expectations were far outweighed by the amazing food. At 55 years old, and eating all over the world, the steak I had was the best I’ve ever had. Fact. Simple to recommend this little gem of a Grill, we will be back regardless of where we stay in Dubai in the future

    We went to The Grill to taste ‘real authentic’ South African food and that is exactly what we got. Great service was the cherry on the top!

    Great food shocking service, we were offered to go back a second time but decided it wasn't worth it. Chicken and ribs were good, walked out after waiting half an hour for desert.
