i had not made much use of my amex palate discounts till recently. for this night on 21.7.2013, we picked Gattopardo – a good choice!   Gattopardo is located at the level 1 of The Legend Fort Canning Park Hotel. there was al fresco dining, we chose though to sit inside. it was a quiet pleasant ambience not so many tables occupied on a Sunday evening.   warm baguette was provided. i was contented with olive oil & balsamic & did not ask for butter.   we picked the beef tartar, which came with a crispy toast, to share. this was excellent! the combination of flavours & texture of beef, onions, anchovies, egg yoke.   there was no soup item, so we asked the waiter. he recommended a curry mussels (S$14). this was NOT a menu item & knowing the tricky situation with palate discounts, we asked SPECIFICALLY if the same discounts applied, and the waiter replied yes!  this was very good, like a good mulligatawny, the mussels were the small & tasty type though with just 3 mussels we thought the serving was rather small. when we asked for the bill, the curry mussels were excluded from the discount. we told them that we specifically confirmed with the waiter on the discounts, and the bill then made a round & came back with the discounts accompanied with a pleasant smile (good service recovery) that actually the item had no discount & they specially made an exception for us.   well no harm done, but i always have difficulty understanding this part of many restaurant’s service & marketing philosophy. i supposed restaurants are entitled to “buyers beware” & no obligations to advise customers. but i always feel that if a service philosophy is to make customer experience memorable, then it should NOT be a contest to outsmart the other. a service outfit should make service offers if it wants to offer & NOT make offers if it does not want to offer & give customers a consistent message.    for mains, we had the risone (risotto shaped pasta) with braised squid & bone marrow. this was super! :-) it had good reviews by other bloggers & the waiter also confirmed it was a popular dish. very flavourful, quite intense.   the sous vide iberico pork jowl (top photo & above right) was very good too!    overall, we enjoyed the dinner very much! our selection of dishes were great.  the costs after palate 50% discount for 2pax was S$70nett excluding wine for 1 appetizer, 2 soups, 2 mains (& S$90nett including 1 glass of red). :-) the prices were a bit lower than at Senso. Senso though have a more classy ambience & the staff at Senso are more professional (a general observation excluding the curry mussel discount matter). will certainly go back again to Gattopardo

The staff were very attentive and helpful.  Food was really good. The Risone is one of the best pasta dishes I have tried. The amberjack with sea urchin and caviar were also very good. Cote de beoef was very very good but is more like for at least 3 pax instead of the recommended 2 pax. Definitely going back!

Love this place! A close friend of mine kept raving about this place and he finally brought me there last month. I was expecting to be blown away and to my surprise, Gattopardo did not disappoint. The ambience was very cosy and warm with lots of space for privacy. Service staff was warm and friendly, food was beyond fantastic. Will definitely recommend this place to my friends and family.
