Great setting but food below expectation

I tried the Boathouse set lunch. First up some oysters naturale, which taste quite fresh. Then the house salmon appetiser, which is a bit bland and lacking flavour. For the main I have the wagyu beef (Australian). This was disappointing, certainly not melt in the mouth, the fat content seems like a normal steak in fact. Finally for dessert the sorbet, which is quite good, especially the accompanying berries. Overall the food is a bit below my expectation for this standard of restaurant. It's pleasant for sure, but I'm not sure about the value, and think there might be better options in this price bracket.

Worst smelling experience

Food was mediocre vs what's in the F&B nowadays. Worst was all of us came out smelling really and due to bad ventilation from the kitchen.
 It's a pretty place but ending the night with smokey smell all over you is not good at all.

Designed to be a boat that is permanently docked along Fullerton Road, the Boathouse Fullerton looks remarkable inside-out.

The interior is a reminiscent of the old Singapore and the secret history of the 1919 waterboat house.
Various historical items are displayed on tables and the walls as a connection to the history of the building and location.
Boasting of beautiful timber and soothing white walls, the decor gives off a warm, sophiscated ambience. Not only that, the beautiful French windows exquisitely frame breathtaking views of the Singapore waterfront

Boathouse restaurant - interesting dining concept

 Shaped like a magnificent three-storey, stately ship that is permanently docked, Boathouse Fullerton looks interesting from the outside and offers diners great views from the inside as well.   Interior-wise, this place offers a quaint and intimate ambience in a beautiful setting of rich browns and elegant chandeliers. Besides the sophisticated decor that gives diners a sense of happiness, the service crew provided rather immaculate service as well. This place prides itself on bringing French dining to a new height.   For lunch, they only have set meals. We chose the three-course sets.    Appetizer was the Crabe - marinated blue crab, smoked tomato coulis and crispy herb tuile. The blue crab paste was very sumptuous, redolent of the sweetness of fresh crab. Eaten with the cheese-like crispy triangles of tuile, this appetiser leaves one longing for more.   Our Main Course was the Roeuf - rib eye, fine mashed potato, heirloom carrots and bordelaise sauce. The beef was rather tender (we asked for medium rare) and slightly chewy, juicy. The mashed potato was so fine and tasty we thought it was some kind of cream initially.   Finally, time for Desserts. We shared the L'Orange - orange and chocolate meringue rock, crumbles and orange granite. As meringue goes, the dessert crumbled into the mouth and dissolved easily, but it was a little too sweet, in my opinion. While the orange flavor was quite promiment, I thought that the white chocolate somewhat obliterated the orange's citrus flavor; I prefer orange desserts made with dark chocolate as the contrast is better.   For more detailed information and photos, please feel free to pop by: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/04/lunch-at-boathouse-restaurant.html

Blaming Chope for a missed reservation

It was a special occasion and my fiance and I were looking forward to dining at the Boathouse to relive our days staying abroad in Europe. 

I made the reservation via Chope, which did not give me problems before.

Arriving at Boathouse, we were greeted by an Event Only sign at the entrance. After explaining our reservation to a lady, whom I assumed was the manager,  she repeatedly insisted that there was no reservation made and she delegated the task of dealing with me to another employee.

An email from the manager CK, followed to salvage my disappointing experience, which again explained that it was not their fault, and repeatedly pointed out CHOPE's failure to inform them.  They offered a 15% discount and restricted my claiming of this meagre 'offer' to September, of which there are only 11 days remaining to dine due to the rest being blocked for F1.

I'm disappointed to miss this dining experience given the great feedback on the food, but I will not be returning because of the utter lack of customer service.

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
