Very good dinner

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.

Strangely Disappointing

We received a promotional mailer from JPassport on Arossa and being a fan of good Japanese pasta, we were really looking forward to try the food. We went on a Saturday afternoon.
 
 First - The Service
 We were at the entrance looking at the menu. The restaurant server at the door did not greet us and left us alone. When we expressed a wish to have a table, he did greet and welcome us in. We were promptly served water and bread. The service was attentive & professional where they will check on refilling and clearing plates promptly. However, it all felt rather 'cold'. They were definitely not rude but just a very noticeable lack of warmth and smiles. It was a bit uncomfortable as it contrasted greatly with the ambiance of the restaurant which was very cosy and warm.
 
 We asked about the JPassport promotion: "This exclusive 1 for 1 lunch set by Arossa is from 11:30am to 2:00pm.” But we were told it was valid only for weekdays but it’s not stated at all in the mailer. We actually saw a few people asked about the promo and left because it was not valid. Second – The Food: We really wanted to try the food and had their set lunch. The appetizers: Salad with prawns was tasty, light and delicious. The minestrone soup was also delicious and filled with crunchy vegetables. The mains: Spaghetti Peperoncino was light and tasty. The wagyu hamburg was well-seasoned and still moist and juicy inside. However, there was a piece of tendon in the humburg that was just too tough to chew and contrasted with the rest of the meat. The dessert: Dessert was a trio of mango sorbet which was sweet and delicious, a panna cotta which was, in my opinion, the best of the whole meal. It was simply light and super delicious and not overly sweet with the right texture. However, it was marred by the third of the dessert trio – simply called ‘chocolate’ by the server who said it’s not a chocolate cake but more like a tart. Well, it did not look like a tart to us but more like a small piece of flourless chocolate cake. And it really was bland and had no taste whatsoever to it… Overall – The Experience: Strangely disappointing was how I would describe it. I had some strict diet restrictions which I informed the server about. In a restaurant of this calibre, I would expect this to be communicated to the chef and be offered something as an alternative, which did not happen. (We were seated right in front of the head chef.) The food was some hits and some misses but generally good – though, nothing exceptional to us. Was it value for money? Not really. We just felt a bit hungry after the whole set lunch. Most of all, I was very disappointed with the impersonal service which just did not gel with the environment and the meal.

Delicious and relaxing

Firstly, the decor is welcoming, warm and relaxed. Secondly, the service was professional and knowledgable. Thirdly, and most importantly, the food was delicious. The beef cheek was superb, the carpaccio was fresh and tasty, and the cheese lovely - a great selection.

The only odd thing was the music - an apparently never ending guitar solo.

Great View, Good Food, Good value

Visisted on a weekday lunch. Food was awesome, portion was good and value for money, staff were attentive. Was seated by the window and the view was great. Would definitely be back.

Wonderful Miyazaki A5 Wagyu Dinner

See my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2014/08/17/wonderful-dinner-arossa-on-16aug2014/

saturday & decided to go dinner last minute. didn’t really know where to go if not our usual haunts. anyhow, looked at palate restaurants, and arossa at scotts square beckoned. this the former scotts shopping centre. i had not set foot since its completion in 2011, not that i been to the former scotts much either. 
arossa wine & grill is located on level 2 in scotts square. it belongs to PJ Partners group of restaurants which included sushi ichi next door & salt at ion orchard. it has a nice redbrick tavern setting. servers were well trained, and there was a young lady japanese chef. 
wife ordered a glass of red (S$18, no discounts). it was good, serving size a bit small.
the bread were warm & good. focaccia was soft & great texture & tasty, walnut bread was nice & flavourful. the olive dip was excellent.
we took the server’s advise & ordered the house favourites a uni (sea urchin) pasta (S$32), & the lobster ravioli (S$28). the lobster broth was very flavourful, a good standard bisque, the ravioli was great.
though different (some would say apples & oranges) & enjoyable i don’t really find ravioli better than chinese shui jiao (水饺) which cost just a fraction. on balance i enjoyed 水饺 more – jut my personal taste. 
we decided to forgo the antipasti, and used the 2 pastas as appetizers since we wanted to try both pastas.
though antipasti menu was the usual ‘ordinary’ stuff, but never know. a good creative chef like they obviously have here may whipped up some new sensation. i will try the antipasti the next time.
for the mains, we decided to share a miyazaki A5 wagyu striploin (S$88). server recommended medium. overall we expected it to be quite good.
it was excellent! one of the best steaks i had taken, and comparable to a good one in japan. there was sea salt on the side & we hardly touched the dip, as the meat was so very tasty & fragrant standalone with just a dab of sea salt. the best beef we had in singapore was at jaan where we were served a dry aged miyazaki wagyu, not sure if it was A5, but it was exquisite. that (seving size) was part of an exquisite degustation menu. the one at arossa was a full 180g steak. i would take a whole steak myself the next visit.
overall, the 3 fabulous dishes came to S$74++ after amex palate’s 50% for 2pax discounts. there was no discounts for the wine, so the total bill was S$92++.
the service was very professional. however the server was professional but not particularly friendly (not the jovial & relax approach). he was very hasty & rushed even though the restaurant was not busy & the body language was one of constantly wanting to move off when i asked a few questions to understand the menu more. so i guess for my personal experience on this occasion it was good but not excellent.
