Privé Grill offers an extensive selection of top-quality steaks, including grain fed, grass fed, organic, hormone-free or antibiotic-free cuts, which have been carefully sourced to complement the Josper-grilling technique. Aside from perfectly grilled steaks, Privé Grill serves up tantalizing appetizers, mouth-watering mains and decadent desserts with a breathtaking waterfront view.
Last night, I brought my wife to the Prive Grill at Keppel Marina for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. The very first approach by the staff was very impressive. She urshered us to a table inside which faces the waterfront. The atmosphere was so cool and romantic. I noticed that all the staffs were very polite and attentive. They were very professional at every move. The food was equally great, perfectly done. Beforehand, I planned a surprise cake and presentation after dinner. But instead, we both were surprised by the way the staff, Bob whom presented it. Not only the cake came with a sparkling candle, Bob also brought along an instant camera to take a lovely picture of us, as a compliment from the management. Not only that, after payment, he even presented a wrapped gift of cookies to my wife and the picture of us slotted into a beautiful card, with hand written greetings and signed by the whole crew working last night. And it doesn't ends there. After leaving, on our way out to the exit, another staff who was stationed there, whom we didn't even see him during dinner, simply greeted us 'Good night and Happy Anniversary '. We both were shocked and chilled. I couldn't expect anything else better than this. We both were truly impressed with the management. Whatever the cost for the evening dinner is, their outstanding service is priceless and will be remembered for another 20yrs of our anniversary... I sincerely thank the crew and the superb management.
How does Prive Grill ever explain how it totally destroyed 2016 Valentine's Day evening for many couples ? This it did by seating many reservations at least 60+ minutes later and some as late as 10.30 p.m.! There was no explanation given except that they were "trying their best".This would leave one to conclude that Prive Grill was irresponsibly overbooked? This is sheer profiteering and greed unchecked because deposits were taken with bookings. So, it's inexcusable that the maths went wrong! That said, the course dinner served was poor and serving size inadequate. A restaurant should not be serving 5 course meals if it means that quality, presentation and overall standard of the meal are completely compromised. Food was mass cooked and left to sit out in the open when diners were not ready for the next course. Most importantly, Prive does not treat its customers with respect nor regard a day like Valentine's Day their professional duty to work towards a memorable celebration worthy of the prices charged. Needless to say, diners should think twice about Prive Grill.
The restaurant is one of the many restaurants under Prive Group. It is located at Marina at Keppel Bay, which offers a nice relaxing of the harbour. The restaurant specializes in modern French-inspired cuisine. The restaurant is decorated with cozy and sophisticated feel. Tonite we are having the set dinner which costs $35++ per person which is offered during the restaurant week.
We start the meal with 3 types of bread, served with olive oil and vinegar.
For starters :
Poached Irish Oysters
Wilted spinach, avruga, chive-champagne sauce
I usually have oysters in raw. Although they are poached, the taste is not a big different. It goes quite well with the rich cream sauce.
Truffled beef cheeks ravioli, Japanese white radish, julienne leeks
The plain looking soup is quite flavourful.
For mains, we are having
Grand Marnier Flambéed Maine Lobster Tail
Seared duck liver, mushroom herb risotto, shallot-red wine gastrique
The lobster is quite meaty and juicy. I am surprised by the sizeable piece of melt in the mouth duck liver. The risotto is well cooked and creamy.
300-Day Grain-Fed Rangers Valley Rump
Cap Potato mousseline, slow-cooked baby carrots, tarragon chimichurri, béarnaise
I am a bit disappointed that the staff has not asked how I would like the steak to be done when taking the order. The steak is served medium well and goes well with the herb sauce.
Lastly desserts :
Warm Chocolate & Peanut Butter Fondant
Salted caramel honey comb, vanilla bean ice cream
Although the cake looks dry, it is just nice hot and slightly crispy edge with the molten peanut butter which flows out like lava.
Banoffee Pie Vanilla cream
Chantilly, chocolate shavings
The pie is a bit deconstructed, but the flavours come together nicely.
Overall the food is great. Service is not bad too. Light a bit so it is a bit difficult to take a good picture of the food, especially when we are seated at a dark end. The restaurant has a cozy and relaxing feel which makes one enjoys the meal very much.
