“classic french cuisine with the million dollar view.”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

My second visit to this restaurant. 20% discount via Internet booking. Many staffs with good at introduction of their product. In July, Australian black truffle was also available. Again, the best dish of vegetable by Alain ducasse. The tomato was very fresh and sour. the side dishes of lobster and veal were very delicious. A half of Lobster , veal chop are classic manner.

My table was facing to Hong Kong skyline view. it was such exuberant experience.

“A great dining experience”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We ended up at Spoon without reservations recently and were happy to be seated immediately. We opted for the seasonal "experience" menu at HK $1,588. Bread selection excellent served with delicious French butter. Complimentary canapés, excellent.
The food was very good throughout perhaps with the exception of the cold consommé. My favorite was the tomato composition, which was superb. The lobster dish was exquisite and the jus with the veal truly memorable - rich classic stock based.
The dessert selection was excellent too - chocolate.
The service was attentive throughout. Professional and friendly. The meal was timed well. Overall a great dining experience. 4.5 stars.

“Near Perfection”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Spoon really gets it right... Three of us had dinner the other night, choosing the degustation menu in celebration of French May (an annual event in Hong Kong). Service is elegant but friendly. Our friend arrived early (well actually we were caught in traffic and were quite late!) but was treated to a delicious platter of canapes while he waited in the bar.

The degustation called to us from the page, Bresse chicken and foie gras pate, snails, yabbies, Charolais beef tenderloin, wild strawberries and to finish a heavenly baba. Oh yes, and a platter of delicious chocolates and sweet treats. Unusually for us we all chose to go with the degustation.

Did I mention the breads and butter? If you want to have room for your meal you'd better close your eyes when the freshly baked treats are brought to you! Both the sweet and salted French butter is to die for. Pair that with Kalamata fougasse, miniature baguettes and cheese rolls and you'll need a strong will to resist!

I was a little sorry that the snails were cooked as fritters, little round crispy balls containing garlic butter, served on lettuce cream. I should have looked carefully at the method of presentation. They were delicious but since the amuse bouche was similarly prepared frogs' legs I would have preferred a different method.

Of course the view is wonderful, the setting serene and the staff superbly trained. How do professional restaurant staff learn to walk like that? Perhaps they're selected for their innate poise and carriage, just like dancers!

Thanks again Spoon!
