i had made the reservation as my wife met the chef in one of the Die Dietrich cooking class and like the dish they made. Then I came to the Travel Advisor website and saw several bad reviews in the past several days. I almost canceled the reservation but decided to give it a try. I know different people have different expectations and hence, I needed to at least take the risk given there were a lot more positive comments over the long haul. Also, the bad comments hopefully inspired the people to do even better.
Upon entering, I was glad to see there was a full room of guest which to me was a good sign. We were glad we decided to try the place ourselves. We opted for the set gustation menu. The standouts were the lobster ravioli, the foie gras and the lab. The lobster ravioli was a refreshing start to the dinner. I had tried to minimize eating foie gras but given it was a special celebration, I went for it and enjoyed it thoroughly . The lamb was also delicious and tender. And for S$98, it was relatively good value.
All in all, a great dinner experience. We plan to be back to try other items in the menu.
