Good Ambience Food So-So

ee my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2014/09/11/so-so-dinner-sopra-cucina-on-10sep2014/

had a 2pax dinner at sopra cucina on 10.9.2014.
sopra cucina & bar had great ambience. the inside was like a large private drawing room with chesterfield deep-buttoned leather seats. it had a charming facade & there was an open patio bar area & live music. 

the bread basket was poor (or like a pizzeria or fast-food serving) & not really consistent with the furnishings & ambience of the restaurant.

we ordered the octopus salad. it was not chef’s recommendations but apparently quite popular with customers. it was quite a large helping. the steamed octopus were ok not tough, like the ones at vicoletti at stresa, but not the standard of the grilled octopus at alle darsene at bellagio. still it was pretty good for an antipasti. 

sopra cucina served sardinia (second largest island in the mediterranean after sicily & before cyprus) cuisine. we ordered the pregola frutti di mare. the prawns were fresh. the scallops & squid were so-so. the tomato flavours were ok but felt more like an average sauce than that from nice fresh tomatoes. the pregolas looked like “barley risotto” but pasta in texture. i would rather have a spaghetti or linguine or fettucine anytime. it’s a personal preference i guess. somehow the dish did not give me the same satisfaction & enjoyment of a good pasta.

the roast suckling pig was quite flavourful & the skin was crispy. of course i would rather have the chinese roast suckling pig anytime. i supposed it’s as good as the suckling pig at capri, but for me the suckling pig with stuffing at one ninety mezze lunch was far better. with 50% palate discounts for 2pax, the bill came to S$74nett including a glass of wine, or S$47++=S$55nett just for the 3 dishes. so price was ok but the satisfaction was not there, unlike say the scrumptious dinner at arossa on 3.9.2014. i saw that there were several sadinian dishes like gnocchi, ravioli, the lamb & the fish which all looked pretty good on photos. still undecided whether i want to give it anther try later.

crappy service

Terrible service. 30 min wait for food despite no one here. 15 min wait for an ice coffee. Waiter a little impolite. Nice ambience though. That's it.

Really horrible

I came here during Restaurant Week on 2 Nov 2014. The reviews have been good but my experience today was just horrible. 

I had the lentil soup to start with. It was just a very ordinary vegetable soup with tons of lentils. The main course I chose was steak with tomato sauce and polenta. There was no choice of how you wanted the meat done. All portions were served as 'medium'. The beef was no less than ordinary and the polenta tasted like it was made from some instant polenta mix. The portion was tiny. There were only a few small pieces of very well-done beef. Then we had panna cotta for dessert and this just tasted like milk powder and sugar.

The service was bad. We had to ask for bread before they served it to us. With the other tables, they served bread very generously. We ordered drinks which took a long time to arrive, and never arrived even after one reminder. So, we gave up reminding the waiters about the drinks that didn't come. The drinks weren't even in the bill which means they never bothered to check on our order at all. 

We paid $25 each for this meal. I honestly wouldn't fork out more than $15 for this. Do cheaper prices during Restaurant Week mean that you should serve your customers cheap food? I would think that any decent restaurant would uphold their quality especially during Restaurant Week when publicity is higher, so as to retain more customers.

I'm never going back to Sopra. Food and service were very disappointing. I'm only glad that I paid 'Restaurant Week' price for this terrible experience.
