Address: W Singapore - Sentosa Cove, 21 Ocean Way, 098374

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.  

 

Dress Code: Smart Casual - No shorts, bermudas, open shoes and slippers.

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 ;)

my wife and I were guests in a party of 6 Last Friday night.  We had 5 steaks which were good. We took the captain's recommendation of 6 king sized Tiger prawns as starters.  We then had dessert and coffee. I must say coffee was very substandard n very diluted.  Overall service was poor as provided by lack of staff and inattentive staff.  It took time for us to get the service staff' attention.  The worst thing was two of us in the party of 6 suffered extreme diarrhea over the following two weekend days.  We certainly did not expect to have such unpleasant experience after an expensive meal in a upmarket eatery.  I am thoroughly disappointed with this dining experience.  Cannot be compared to say Morton's the steakhouse.

My wife bought a sip and indulge membership earlier this year and we had 500 dollars of dining vouchers that we had to use up, naturally we went down to skirt as it had been on our dining to-go list for quiet sometime.

We went a total of three times to use up all the dining vouchers, however, each subsequent time we got a little more dissappointed at the quality of the food and the drinks.

The first visit there was amazing, everything was great. the blackmore beef was just superb! and the fresh bread and the chorizo oil was very fragrant. We could not get enough of it. During our first visit we also had some great cocktails and a wine flight which really added to the overall experience.

On our second visit, we decided to keep our meal within $150 for 2 so we ordered modestly and also got the smaller cuts of meat. the steaks were tiny, I cannot stress how tiny they were compared to the first time we visited skirt. We buy steaks on a regular basis from the supermarket and we can roughly gauge the size of a 200 gram flank/skirt steak... and this was a little ridiclously small.

On our third and final visit, we were actually staying at the W hotel so we decided to use the remaining of our vouchers at skirt. our third visit let us down again.

The steaks were seemingly not well aged their signature skirt stead had too much of an irony flavour to it and the well aged, pungent aroma was missing. 

Overall, the ambiance and service are both excellent, attentive service in a morden steakhouse setting is seemingly the perfect place for a good meal. however i cannot say that the food is very consistant dispite dining there 3 times.

If you have bought the W hotel membership card and can get a discount off cut and have dining vouchers. i would say give skirt a shot. you may just love the great wines and the wonderful breads.

however as a steakhouse, i'd say that it still needs work.... alot of work from my last experience.

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 is the amazing freshly baked bread
