Since more than 5 years we love to dine at the JW´s Steakhouse. The food is excellent, the staff extremely friendly but still discreet. They always make you feel "Welcome home!" and though we have tried some other steakhouses, there is none like the JW´s!

Ok, the whole story behind what made us go to JW is long one, so I will not bore you with it. All I will say is that my Boss said it was "Epic" and he is an American who knows a thing or two about steak.

Decided to take the Wall of Fame challenge last night. Offered every Wednesday, it entails a 25oz. of tenderloin and a bottle of Merlot. Bread and butter were served which I was advised to have to build up an appetite and which probably helped. This was followed by prawn salad as compliments from the Chef.
It was a Goliath size block of meat cooked medium rare that came with caramelized onion, tomato and 4 types of sauces. Sitting ensconced in the high back green leather chair, there was no escape. I perused the Béarnaise and peppercorn and did away with the Dijon and grainy mustard. Again, no hint of juiciness of the steak as in my last visit. Midway through, got the meat redone as the centre was raw and it had also got cold.
Ended the night taking pictures with the Kitchen and waiting staff. They were all very supportive. The staff also took pictures with their Polaroid and gave me one and kept the other for their guest’s comment book. My name will be put up just outside the entrance on the right side.

Came on 30th May. Felt like we were in an exclusive club. Seated on one of the green leather armchair however this time the table wasn't reserved with our name on it.
Had caesar's salad which was shared by the two of us. Enjoyed fresh warm bread served in its earthen vessel. For the mains, it was the corn-fed chicken and steamed vegetables for my wife while I had a 10oz. beef fillet. The chicken was full of flavour and more than enough to satisfy the hungry. The vegetables were plain tasteless. The fillet had been prepared medium rare but disappointingly dry. No juices flowing here. We had the pinacolada and a draught beer to go with our order.
The total came to AED 495.

Finally, a proper steakhouse. A dignified atmosphere once you step into this warm place. I was escorted to my table which had a board with my name on it and a silver bull's head atop the board. A bottle of Evian and some freshly in house baked bread with herb butter were promptly delivered. The bull's head a is a recurring leitmotif.
The menu board was brought. This was no menu card but a solid wooden board about 2 feet long with one side dealing with food and the other the wine list.
To start proceedings, I opted for the pan fried foie gras and a glass of red house wine recommended by the waitress. It came with small diced sweet tasting carrots, watercress and on one side of the plate, black streaks of balsamic vinegar and on the other few flecks of coffee meant to enhance the taste of foie gras. I couldn't appreciate much of either vinegar or the coffee. The foie gras had a hint of bitter taste to it. On the inside, it had the consistency softer than that of pudding. It would break up once you cut it with a knife. It was warm, soft and wonderful to have. Wow.
For the mains, I ordered from the JW's steakhouse signature grill, the JW's Trio which included a 4 oz. angus steak, 4 oz. wagyyu fillet and a 4 oz. veal fillet. It was ordered medium done and came with some cabbage and tomatoes. Bernaise sauce, pepper sauce, 2 sealed bottles of mustard, grain and Dijon, were placed on hand. Before the plate of steaks were brought, a plate holding board with a bull head figuring on either side was placed on the table. The plate of steak was placed in the centre of this. An initial bite of all 3 tasted equally great and didn't reveal superiority of any one but as things progressed I could appreciate the chewyness of the angus. The wagyu was very fine but at the finish line, it was the veal with it's neck just in front.
I did away with the desserts. 2 dark chocolates were brought which was hard and crunchy on the outside with a softer chocolate filling within. The toothpick holder reminded me of the cigarette holder where wooden bird would pick the cigarette in its beak. Only here, it was a man in steel.
Small bottle of Evian: AED 14
A glass of wine: AED 55
Pan fried foie gras: AED 98
JW's Trio: AED 295
Total: AED 462
You can get your name put on the table surface for good if you dine there at least 24 times in 6months. I had dined here last August and the steak has been bettered only by the one I subsequently had at MJ Steakhouse soon after. Of all the steakhouses I have been to, this, although expensive, was the best overall experience.
