Stunning perfection.

I can't think of that many restaurants in Singapore where you are served real perfection, in fact I can count them on one hand. This is one of those few.
The Chef has an excellent control of the kitchen, consistently delivering perfection with every dish, maintaining the right balance between creativity, tradition and taste. I would consider without a doubt this to be the best fine dining French in Singapore (setting aside insanely priced "celebrity" restaurants), only having Jaan as a worthy competitor.
Stunning.

Appaling Experience

First thing first, alot of what they were trying to serve as home made tastes and probably is... industrial. List of a few things that tastes industrial, bread and crackers from the starters, and the cakes for the desserts even the rillette they were using for the starters tasted like it came out from a can. The entire experience was inadequate. The food was pretentious and unappetizing. Poor and uneven seasoning which makes some things bland and most of others salty. Granted that the quality of the meats in the mains were good, but good ingredients also requires good seasoning and proper treatment. Alot of what they were trying to create didn't make sense visually or even in the mouth. And of course the worst experience comes with the price that they are charging for their food. Way too expensive for what is being served. I had seen the share of bad reviews of the place from others before we went in, but i was not prepared to be disappointed to the point of leaving this review.

New Year's Eve Dinner at Nicolas le Restaurant

We were each served with a 5 course New Year's eve set. Our first course was the Hokkaido Scallop ( Infusion of Asari Clams and Iranian Saffron). The scallop was soft and the broth was decent. It was served with a cracker This plate was EXCELLENT!

French at its best

The eight course menu went well with the red wine. Each plate was nicely presented and every bit was a memorable taste sensation. Service was impeccable.

Chose this place to celebrate the best friend's birthday and I must say, I'm really impressed by their service. This is the place that really wow-ed my in terms of service.

I brought a cake that I made myself to the restaurant and the waiter gestured to me asking if its time to serve the cake and I nodded, then he came in and asked me quietly how many candles and I told him then he went to prepare the cake. The cake took REALLY long to come and we were all wondering what happened + birthday girl was getting suspicious! Finally when the cake came, I was so surprised, so shocked and so touched.

I made a cake that looked like the one on top, just pure white frosting outside. This was the cake sitting in the box. Outside was the cake bunting that I made that looks similar to the one above. Then there were candles and lighter. I didnt give any instructions abt the cake bunting thingy that its supposed to be placed on the cake or anything. But in came the cake, with the cake bunting placed on it, with candles arranged v nicely in an artful manner, and they wrote Happy Birthday using chocolate on the cake. They made the cake look really nice and grand. I was so happy with what they did to the cake! (: Really touched as well. Usually when you bring a cake to the restaurant, they'd just give you the plastic bag w the cake when you ask for the cake, but no, that does not happen at Nicolas! At least not for us!

It wasnt to say that the restaurant was empty, on the contrary they were full/almost full! But still they made the effort and this scores high points in my book for service. But pity the food wasn't up to my expectations of their food.
