We had made a reservation at Lawry's for 8:30 pm, and we were shown to a romantic table for two in a corner with huge windows on either side. Lawry’s is on the fourth floor of Mandarin Gallery, so our table overlooked the pedestrians of busy Orchard Road and the huge H&M sign on the building across the street. We could see that there was a whole row of tables for two along the windows facing Orchard Road, so there is a good chance of getting a window table. The warm rolls were tasty. The server starts by asking if you want sparkling or still water, but you can order tap water which tastes the same to us as water from the bottles of Equil that they serve for SGD 7++. Their wine list was extensive enough so that we could order a glass of sweet late harvest wine that was very good. We felt that Lawry's does prime rib best, so we shared a tender and sweet Lowry's cut (285 gr) of prime rib, and they added an order of mashed potatoes to match the roast beef. It was swimming in juice which we soaked up with Yorkshire pudding. They served two kinds of horseradish. Although the portions filled us up, we could not resist ordering the crepes Suzette which was prepared on a cart next to our table. The lady used many oranges and a lemon. After she made the sauce and put the crepes on the plate, she added banana slices. We could not taste the alcohol that was flamed, and we didn’t feel the banana slices added to the flavor. Neither the sauce nor the crepes were the best we have tasted, but they were very good. The high point of the crepes Suzette was the vanilla ice cream on the side which was good and plentiful (often it is not). The staff were well trained and very helpful. Our servers all were very charming Filipinas. They graciously provided a 10% discount for guests of the Mandarin Orchard hotel, and another 5% for paying directly to Lowry's. That brought the price down to a reasonable level. We felt that the whole experience was excellent, and the food was very good.
