I work in Asia Square and so have been to 63 quite a lot since it first opened. The food is generally above average, but on the whole, it tends to be a little too artsy or creative for its own good. I think they'd benefit from dialing it down a notch and going with slightly simpler dishes. It's located in the covered square between two office towers and most of the seats are outdoors, so trying to be too 'shi shi foo foo' doesn't really work. As an example, the fries with truffle oil thing has been done to death, so 63's current take on it is to use real truffle instead. Sounds good but shredded brown truffle bits drooping over a pile of fries isn't as appetizing as it might seem. Why I give this place a thumb's down overall is that they allow the personality conflicts and egos of the people working there to get in the way of providing the best customer experience. This has resulted in unnecessarily high staff turnover, refusals to accommodate even simple customer requests (e.g., swapping fries and onion rings), and inconsistency in their offerings. This has also affected the coffee bar portion of the business, though currently this is pretty good. In fairness, I'd say it's better now than it has been in the recent past, but I remain reluctant to give it a thumb's up.
