Came here with a GrabOne deal. The decor and ambience does not look cheap, but it wasn't working for me. Some of the food was quite nice, and some OK. The Truffle Mushroom Risotto was really delicious. Pork Belly was just OK. The menu, and especially the mains, are pretty much just standard affair--not much creativity with what is on offer. For a restaurant at this price, They could use just a bit of a splash of personality or creativity with not all, but at least some of what's on offer. It feels like there is no real foodie working here.
The service was polite and good. The price with a GrabOne is not bad. If you go I would make sure to get that as it can be half off normal price of your meal.
What became really obvious is the reason to go here is for the wine, not the food. The wine list on offer (much of which is expensive) was very, very extensive. The rest of what they have is not bad.
Exceptionally exquisite food to accompany celestial wine pairings set amidst aesthetically pleasing decor with silver service opulence! I loved the anticipation of trying a different wine with each course! Savour each morsel of gourmet delight with a palate cleanser of a selection of impressive varietals. A 5 STARS dining extravagance!
