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.

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 ;)
Skirt is the best place for steak - even morton's can't beat Skirt. The best cut would be the Skirt itself. It's done so perfectly! Their side dishes are also fantastic. PS: apologies, I forgot to take a pix of my main but took a pix of their special instead
I had never written any reviews of places that i went, till i landed up at SKIRT.
Reservation was a breeze.... and being the first timer, wasnt really sure what to expect.
Service was top notch! We were being constantly served /assured by 2 staff. Roxanne & August.
August was knowledgeable about the beef cuts, how it shud be prepared and even pairing of the wine based on individual preferneces.
Roxanne was accomodating since the time we stepped in till we left. Before leaving, i had to stop and asked for their names. She had a worried look and asked if i am going to make any complain to the management. If i was not satisifed, please let her know so she could resolve the matter.
I just smiled. I had every intention to let the management know that they have 2 top notch staff working for them and they should be rewarded by the management.
Food wise, being a meat lover, the choises there were unknow to me. August was there to sort us out. We had the best steaks we had ever tasted. We dont even need to add any salt nor other condiments that were on offer.
Food serving portions can be deceptive. I should have listened to August when he said, you dont need the extra fries, just the asparagus will do. i ended up only eating 4-5 pieces of fires.
Would i return to SKIRT? on special occassions maybe due to prices.
A good dinw adn wine affair could cost you just over $200 for a fulfilling appetiser/main/shared side+some glasses of wine.
Food is never good on its own but with the company. And i am fortunate to have Roxanne and August as my company that night.
I went to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and it was one of most memorable dining experience I've ever had.
We were served bread with some kind of red coloured oil (didn't catch the name) and artichoke dip while we wait for the dishes. And it was one of the freshest bread I've ever had. The inside were fluffy and the crisp on the skin is just prefect. I think it was right out of the oven as we ate another one after our meal ends (2 hours later), it was not as amazing anymore.
We ordered their King Prawns and Wagyu beef from Japan and it was AMAZING. It was certainly one of the best I've ever had. The prawns were big, juicy and flavourful and there are really no words to describe their beef. Tender and it melts in your mouth. The Apple Bourbon they served to heighten the taste sensory was amazingly good and effective.
We also ordered their Sautéed Portobello Mushroom, Garlic Fries Aioli and SKIRT Reinvented Caesar Salad. The Portobello Mushroom was sweet and nice but the garlic fries and ceasar salad was disappointing. Fries were an oily mush and ceasar salad were just normal with too much dressing. Nothing reinvented.
They also had quite a few selection of wines from all over the world and we opened a bottle of Shiraz to go with the beef but I'm not a wine person so no comment on that.
The ambience were definitely nice and the tables and seats were nicely arrannged with a lot of space to spare. I feel like I was dining in private due to the huge sofas but the decorations are a bit mismatched though. It's a steak house but the fish shaped decorations and the Middle Eastern looking lampshade makes me feel like they were going to serve Chinese stir-fry beef or steamed fish.
Their service was superb as well with the waiter coming over to explain the menu with smiles and we also had a complimentary cake due to my boyfriend's birthday. When I asked for their closing time, the staff asked me not to worry about it although it seems like they are closing very soon. I lost my camera at the taxi waiting area next door and the staff at SKIRT helped me to find my camera. (THANK YOU!)
Overall, I think the whole dining experience was a breathtaking one (boyfriend agreed). I will definitely return to try other dishes. Hope they will be just as great! Keep up the good job!
**Will add photos once I get back my camera. ;)
