“Never disappointed”

Wherever I go in the world I make a point to try and dine at the Mandarin Oriental because I am never disappointed. The franchise maintains a high quality of service and product and the Dolce Vita is no exception.

The Décor itself is just lovely, and lends itself to the start of a lovely lunch or dinner. The pasta was divine! Cooked to perfection and with a lovely entrée of warm breads and dips.
Service was impeccable.
We had a table by the window so we could view the amazing light show over at the Marina Bay Gardens.
As we left the hostess presented us with red rose.
Just a lovely evening and certainly a place to visit if staying at the Hotel.

“5 star experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner and the 5 star experience started before we even arrived.
Went to see the staff the day before as had originally booked for a table outsided however after watching kids jumping around all day in the pool, we weren't sure we wanted that view whilst having dinner, plus the weather was quite warm so the air con inside was appealing. The manager went over and above and said he will keep both a table inside and out for us and when we arrive for our reservation we could then decide where we wanted to sit.
Food and service was fantastic. Must try the lobster bisque with scallops !!

“Enjoying the new brunch menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

Farewell brunch with a group of 6. I love the atmosphere lots of natural light nice and airy, very attentive but not overbearing service. The staff do an excellent job of sensing the vibe of the table and are always close by when you need them. True test of a champagne brunch to pass is whether they can avoid a dry glass on the table, certainly that test was passed with flying colors. Eiw did a great job keeping the glasses topped up so no idea how much we consumed. I have been a repeat customer for a few years now and it's great to see some changes to the menu. The old favorites, including the Piedmont truffle risotto remain and that continues to be truly excellent but there are some nice new additions, the Parma ham with a mozzarella espuma was especially good. I have now tried all champagne brunch venues I am aware of but keep coming back here. I love the concept of lots of little dishes being brought to the table which means you actually get to spend time talking to your co-diners rather than getting up and down repeatedly and refilling you plate. Jan and team do an excellent job really looking after their customers and the champagne, Ruinart is IMHO the best free flow champagne in Singapore. Look forward to returning again soon.

“Nice to have an Italian food alternative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Very nice food, service just a tad slow. Great view!!! The young lady pouring my wine recited all the characteristics of the wine as by rote which was amusing.
