We went for Sunday brunch with friends and family having previously been on 2 other occasions. The concept of having a brunch where we could order the food 'a la carte' and it be served to us at our table was the main reason for giving it a go.
We had a pleasant time, the food is good but the service let things down. We would say that, overall, our experience was fine but with so much choice in Singapore we won't be rushing back anytime soon.
The quality of the food is very good and everything we had was delicious. However, the options were limited to (I think) 6 starters, 6 main dishes and 4 desserts plus some cheese. 1 option for the main and another for the starter were at 'extra cost' (I think about $40 for the main) and were, therefore, not included in the set price. The 'a la carte' method does help with food quality and avoid wastage but it does limit your options.
The ambience was good with a nice crowd but the acoustics of the room are not good and it did make it difficult to have a conversation at our table.
The service was fine but there were a couple of things that disappointed us. Firstly, we had asked for a copy of the menu the day before so we could prepare ourselves. Only 24hrs before our arrival the menu had oysters as a starter but when we arrived they had been removed. The Manager told us that they had had a busy Saturday and the oysters had sold out. We raised the matter again and on the 3rd time the Manager said that they had found 6 and would prepare them for us. We were pleased to get some but it does raise the question why we had to insist before the oysters were found. Secondly, some of our orders did not arrive and at other times we ordered 1 portion of something only to receive a whole tray load, from which we took the 1 portions and sent the rest back to the kitchen.
