Arossa Wine & Grill opens its flagships classic grill restaurant at Scott’s Square in the heart of Orchard Road. Customers will be able to treat themselves to a perfect gourmet experience one can expect from a Japanese chef.
I visited Arossa Wine & Grill for Restaurant Week 2013. Among the 4 restaurants I visited for Restaurant week, this was by far the best in terms of food quality, service and value.
We went there for dinner and had the buffalo mozzarella salad and the ribeye steak. The steak was a decent portion and done perfectly, medium-rare jut as I like it. It went well with the Malbec wine they recommended.
We had a last minute addition of 1 person to our party. He ordered the Porcini Cream Risotto from the a-la-carte menu and it was delicious! The dessert was tiramisu which was very well done, I wish I had more!
The service team were very attentive, and helpful. They also seemed knowledgeable of what wine to recommend for each dish.
The only thing I wasn't crazy about is the open kitchen. While it is interesting to witness my food being prepared, I am not a fan of smelling like my dinner especially in a place where I would dress up. I'm not sure if the management can do something to improve the ventilation.

had a nice, quiet dinner with son at arossa on 23.12.2014.
we were given a corner table by the window overlooking scotts road with all the christmas decorations.
son wanted some oysters as starter. we decided to order a wagyu steak each & a lobster ravioli to share.
the oysters were excellent, very sweet, plump & tasty.
the lobster blackened spinach ravioli were tops too. :-) the restaurant split for us so we had 3 ravioli each. the lobster broth or emulsion was superb.
the A5 miyazaki wagyu was also top fine dining standard. so what’s missing?
first, it was now 150g instead of 180g. i guess that’s ok. wagyu was good, very tender, good tasting, presentation was good also, definitely equalled or beat any fine dining restaurant serving good steaks.
but i could tell instantly that the presentation, sauce etc basically everything was different from the japanese presentation the last 2 times – see photos of the kagoshima wagyu on 3.9.2014 & the miyazaki wagyu on 16.8.2014.
& taste-wise somehow it did not have the standout marbled fragrance of a top japanese wagyu cut.
dinner for 2pax was S$143 after 50% palate discounts with amex.
sadly, arossa is closing by end jan2015 & we were told watanabe-san, the grill chef helming the restaurant is returning to japan to start her own restaurant. good for her & all the very best! :-)
i will probably return before end jan2015 to have a last go.
I enjoyed every single dish on our table that night and I highly recommend this place for date nights.
The main highlight is the Grilled Blue Fin Tuna with Salsa Fresh Tomatoes! I am personally not a fan of tuna but this dish was so good it changed my mind! Arossa Grill takes pride in their fresh ingredients and grilling techniques, it can be tasted through this wonderfully grilled dish.
The calamari is easily one of my favourite dish of the night. I have always loved deep-fried sotong but is often disappointed by joints dishing calamari that are too floury or bland. The calamari at Arossa is crispy and delectable, and also came with Spicy Aioli Sauce for dips. So outstanding that I would definitely recommend everyone to order this when you dine at Arossa.
