What we ordered:
Pan-seared Foie Gras – Tuna, Angus Beef Tenderloin with Aglio e Olio Trofie Pasta and Australian Lamb Tender loin and Spiced Shoulder
Taste = 4.5/5
– We wanted to go somewhere special for our first anniversary. This restaurant had good reviews and it was not too popular, which I liked. Their Foie Gras was perfection on a plate. The sear on the Foie Gras added a really nice contrast in texture and the tuna and watermelon went really good with the Foie Gras. Imagine the most delicious scrambled egg that has a paper thin salty crispy exterior with a very custard-like goodness inside. I could go on and on about how delicious that dish was. We asked the server what the good dishes were and he said the Angus and lamb. The Angus beef tenderloin was thick, juicy, cooked to our preference and was just executed beautifully. The roasted veggies had the right amount of caramelization and I love roasted veggies. The Lamb Tenderloin was great with the consistency like that of a firm marshmallow – very tender. The seasoning was right and the taste was superb. What I didn’t particularly like was the Spiced Shoulder. Somehow the combination of tastes was too complicated for my taste buds. Lyn also didn’t like the Trofie Pasta. It tasted a little funny and had a slight kerosene taste to it.
Service = 5/5
– Of course the servers provided excellent service. I would be surprised if they didn’t. I think the server had little knowledge on their own wines since he was unsure of what went well with our dishes.
Ambience = 5/5
– The place felt very romantic. The dining area had elevated areas that were dimmer than the other areas and had better table spacing which made them perfect for intimate engagements. The night just felt very magical and we were very fortunate we ended up in this restaurant that day.
Value for money = 4.5/5
– Of course the prices would be expensive for a hotel-based restaurant. But the quality and taste of most of the dishes plus the great service and romantic ambience made our whole experience very special.
