It's a no from me. The decor is average at best. It's small and looks like a room.

Staff is the biggest problem. The staff is really pushy and hellbent to prove he is smarter than you. Every dish I ordered, he had an opinion about it. Even though the place projects itself as classy, you could hear the staff giggle and gossip in the kitchen, from your seat. The wait staff messed up my coffee. I asked for truffle coffee, he gave me a simple cappuccino. Later had the guts to tell me that iced Cappuccino is a better choice. I asked for camomile tea, he gave me lemon tea, as he thought that's better. My wife got upset and got it changed.

The food is very well presented. Setting is nice and ingredients seem fresh. The problem is the portion size. I am a really light eater. I can survive on snack and coffee. But I felt as if I didn't even have lunch. I had to eat cup noodles at home after.
The photo is of the main dish. Beef steak. Speaks for itself.

I seriously don't know what the hype is all about? I am very easy to please. Most my reviews are 4 or 5. This one sadly is a big miss. We paid close to $300 without drinks. Coffee and tea was included in the sets. So light snack and water for 300. No thank you.

Good things first, the decor of the place and the wine chiller in between. That's the highlight of this place. I don't drink but could still appreciate the beauty.
Presentation of food is nice. The server is friendly and tries his best to give good service.

The rest : Food is not good. Not authentic Italian. I am surprised they even took an Italian name. They could have just called it wine bistro or something similar. Look at my pork dish in the photos. That dish is $38. OMG I almost wanted my money back after having it. But I didn't say anything and decided to never come back. The second dish was a pasta burrata for $34, the burrata was okay but pasta was so bad, I can't even describe it.

Location of this joint is so off and so far from the beauty of Clarke quay and boat quay, I don't understand why it's so high in prices. Expect around $100 for 2 without drinks. We spent $70 after burpple 1 for 1 offer. Still not happy.

Coffee was nice and strong. Wine was okay. This place is so avoidable with so many good food options in SG. So you do the same and find a better place to eat at.

Ordered the French toast. Bread was decent quality with good serving size and nice presentation. Price a little high for breakfast option.

Place had beautiful decor and lighting, perfect for pictures. Also it's 24 hours open, which is great.

Taste however is the least favorite part of the cafe. We ordered the French toast and ribeye Sandwich and both were mediocre at best. I would not come back for the taste or flavor. French toast was so simple like I cook at home and was not soft and melting like you would expect at such a good Cafe. Price is super high. We ordered 3 coffee along with the food and total cost was a whooping $85.

I understand it's orchard and round the clock service, but this price for a Cafe breakfast is too high.

It's a hit and miss for me. 3 stars

Taste was nice, but merely a snack. Can't have as an adult meal without lots of sides. But, if you like think crust pan pizzas you can give it a try

Probably the worst food in Singapore 🇸🇬. I have been to atleast 1000 cafes in the last 5 years and never had such bad food.

I was going to puke on the table, only somehow managed to rush to the washroom

PLEASE AVOID LIKE A PLAGUE

As you can see in the picture, burger is really small. Too much cheese in the burger and very less avocado.

They charge 24 for 1 set. Burpple Beyond saved me here, as I got 1 for 1.

Cheese overpowering the whole taste and also making the burger really salty. Not visiting anytime soon.

2 on 5. You have been warned

The lobster roll set costs $20 / pax. Includes mandatory lemon tea and bisque.

The roll is great taste and is quite a nice portion. However, the drink can only be lemon tea and nothing else.

I went with my friend and it costed us $39 for 2 people. There is no seating and we had to stand and eat the $39 food. Even though it was lobster and had a great taste, we felt like eating fast food because of the roll style and standing to eat.

Honestly there are many more options for such a high price. So can't really recommend this one. If you are charging a premium price, you need to figure out a place to make some seating arrangement.

I posted this review before, but somehow my review got deleted. Please avoid this place, if good food is your priority.

The service is slow and it took them 45 minutes to get me the dish. The restaurant is fancy and has great decor, which does not cover for the bad service and food.

The food is tasteless. The seafood is bad and sour. There is also a very bad aftertaste.

They also force you to order from the same family (seafood on seafood) with the burrple beyond. There is no mention of this rule on beyond.

My humble rating is 1 on 10

The fish was so bad, it was hard to swallow. Do not go to this place. 1 star

The service is exceptionally slow. It took them 45 minutes to prepare a risotto.

The taste was so bag. The whole thing was bitter tasting and even had a bad after tatse.

They did not honor the beyond offer properly. Forced us to order 2 seafood items. Honor rules never mentioned that both dishes have to be the same family.

In my humble opinion, the restaurant doesn't offer anything that justifies the price. Please avoid

Let me start in reverse. Do not go to this place. 1 star

Extremely small portion for the price. This is not main course.

The taste is also not good at all. I can't see any reason to come back here.

The staff is friendly but that's not enough for dinner.

Avoid this place. 1 on 5
