SKIRT

AmericanSteak and GrillsWestern

Turn the heat up on a decadent dinner at SKIRT at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove, a trailblazing steakhouse, where prime cuts of meat and fresh seafood are beautifully prepared on the centrepiece parilla grill. 

 

The dinner experience at one of Sentosa’s best restaurants is inherent in each detail characterising the chef’s collaborative ethos of technique and ingredients, beginning from the butterflies on the reception stand to lighting and wood panels that complement the sensational aromas emanating from the grill. A world-class wine cellar featuring rare and distinguished vintages enhances supreme meats such as Blackmore 100% full blood Japanese Wagyu with a marble score of 9+ and Australian Tajima Wagyu beef, and daily ocean specials featuring only the most sustainable and freshest seafood.

 

Child Policy: Please note that only children above 8 years of age accompanied by an adult will be welcome to dine at SKIRT.

Right choice for a birthday celebration

I was so impressed with my overall experience at Skirt that I felt compelled to write a review - and I'm not one to write reviews!

Their service won me over before we even dined in the restaurant. When I called to make a reservation and informed them that it was my bf's birthday, they asked me for his name and told me they would give us a complimentary slice of cake!

And when we arrived at the restaurant, the service was impeccable. The waiters were always around with a smile and extremely attentive to our needs, perhaps even too much!

As for the food, it was sumptuous. We had complimentary bread with chorizo oil (served in a dropper bottle - how cute!) and seaweed sauce. The bread was fluffy and the blend of flavours was interesting. We ordered a Blackmore Australian full-blood Wagyu skirt steak at $48 for 250g (their signature steak) to share. They served an apple bourbon palate cleanser before the mains arrived and to me this was an indication of how attentive they are to the overall dining experience. I've never tried skirt steak before but it was definitely one of the best steaks I've ever had. Although the medium was slightly on the raw side, the beef was very tender, juicy and flavourful (but not gamy!). My bf commented that it was the best steak he's ever had :) We also ordered wild sauteed mushrooms ($12) and asparagus with quail eggs and burnt butter ($8). The sides were surprisingly inexpensive and offer good bang for the buck. The mushrooms were juicy and soft and again, my mushroom-loving boyfriend said it was the best he's ever had. The asparagus was good though not out of this world. The burnt butter had a crunchiness to it and had the taste of caramel, adding a new dimension to the dish.

For dessert, we had our complimentary cake. It was good though nothing to rave about (can't complain because it's free!) but I was very touched by the gesture. We also ordered the torched honey meringue with coconut and pineapple ice cream ($18). The meringue melts in your mouth and the coconut ice-cream is light. It had pineapple chunks and a cake base to give it an added dimension. Definitely a must try if you're visiting Skirt!

On the whole, I have no doubt that Skirt was the right choice for my bf's birthday celebration. You can also take a walk along the bay to admire the yachts after dinner ;)

Poor food - great service

I would only recommend SKIRT to friends if the food improves drastically

Compared to similarly priced steak restaurants in Singapore (Cut / Mortons) Skirt dissapoints constantly.

The portions of meat are tiny comparatively and the complexity of flavours are just not there. 

one thing i always enjoy

Decent food, so-so steaks, great drinks, great girls night out

Came with my girls on a friday night, the place was not very packed and we were all excited to dine at skirt.

We were seated in a cosy booth seat, loved the ambiance and we also love the view from the restaurant.

We ordered a few sides, some meats to share and 2 cocktails each.

The cocktails were

Date night

Foccacia bread

A warm foccacia bread roll was served after our orders were placed and it came with a seaweed dip and chorizo lard oil. I must say that I really prefer this to the usual olive oil. I may be bias to anything seaweed - just like how I love Macdonald's seaweed shaker fries! The dips were

Substandard steaks at a higher price than established steakhouses

my wife and I love steaks and we usually go to morton's, cut, no menu restaurant and others to have steak. 

Brought my wife to Skirt for her birthday after reading positive reviews from ladyironchef on their steaks but what a mistake we had made. 

We we had the Blackmore skirt steak($68 - which you

Ull review and photos at my blog!

I preferred the 500g bone-in striploin compared to the signature Wagyu SKirt steak, which seemed more flavorful rather than just having high marbling. 

Good service and ambience, SKIRT is definitely a
