Looking for new place to take my dear mother for her birthday dinner
Decided for old times sake to go to gordon grill Also nearest to us as Dads only arriving at 8pm from the airport so a bit apprehensive about last orders

First thing to do was to read the reviews on tripadvisor Looked great No adverse comments

Rang Took about 30 rings to be picked up I kid you not

Sam took down reservation disinterestedly Then it went downhill

'Its a birthday tomorrow Do you have any spe..." "No"
"...cials for birthdays?" "No"
"No special men..." "No"
"...ues perhaps?" "No"
"How about..." "No"
So it went on I heard 6 Nos before i gave up.
Lets hope dinner turns out well I hear the steaks are good...
Will update after the meal but if its service you're after, you might want to
go to lawrys instead

Thank 2012Jaime

When it comes to a bit above the crowd in food and excellent atmosphere for a serious business conversation, you can't beat the Gordon Grill. The business lunch menu is most reasonable at $38 for 3 courses and $48 for 4 courses. The special touch is that for most of the courses, one can choose small portions of 2-3 choices. For example, the appetizer, you may choose say the angel hair with crab meat and caviar or have it in smaller portion but pick 2 more among 4 or 5 appetizer selections. It comes in a long plate of 3 well laid out tasting portions. For people who want to nibble on morsels of interesting food while getting on with business, this is ideal. I skipped the soup (select among 3 choices) and went for the Tasmanian Baramundi for main and choice of 2 desserts to count as 3 courses altogether. All through lunch, the service was discreet yet attentive and we had an alcove to four of us. This added a sense of intimacy that was an asset to a client conversation,

The Gordon Grill has been around for years and is still a good place to eat. Whilst you dont go to Singapore to eat Steak it is a place where you can get a good one.
The Goodwood Park have given this restaurant a bit of a revamp.

As a steak enthusiast, I appreciated this restaurant's sophisticated menu. It provided details on the steaks, such as grass fed vs corn fed, and the country of origin etc. Also, when we ordered steaks a waiter presented the raw meat on a cart, so that you can see the condition of the meat. Which is a great plus if you are as crazy about steaks as I am -- you could see the color, distribution of fat, and juiciness from looking at the raw meat yourself. The waiter then cut and weighed the meat in front of you before he takes the steak back to the kitchen for cooking.

Unfortunately, I encountered snobbish and slightly rude service here. I asked for 300g of a certain cut of meat. The waiter cut the meat and put it on the scale, and it was 250g only. I then expressed discontent, saying that I had really wanted 300g. The waiter said, "Madam, most women order 200g only, so 250g is quite a big portion for you."

I felt humiliated by this comment, and frankly surpised that a restaurant of this calibre -- which should have every incentive to sell more steak, not less, as the price is charged by unit of weight -- would give a female customer such treatment. But I was dining with business associates and did not want to make a scene, so I let it pass.

Lastly I should mention that this restaurant has a British upper-class setting, is relatively quiet and forbids the use of mobile phones within the restaurant premises.
