Wine Connection Tapas Bar & Bistro is a popular hub for groups wanting to share a casual dinner, late night drinks and events. With 350 seats both indoor and al fresco, truly this is a perfect place for a great bond and great drinks ahead.
I was glad that buddy *Gareth suggested The Wine Connection Tapas Bar when we were due for a chillout c** catching up session.
We shared some light bites between us, starting from the Cheese and Ham Platter. There were crispy grained toasts, 2 cheeses and 3 types of ham on the platter, with some vegetables and pickles. I am pretty sure one of the cheese was brie, though I could not be too sure about the other one. Overall, it was still an enjoyable platter of nibbles to go along with our wines.
Next, Lamb Kofta, which held a totally tasty taste of lamb and spices, well-grilled with hints of smokiness to the aroma; the minced lamb was tender and juicy, not hard at all. It was utterly delicious.
Drinks-wise, I started with a glass of Rosé Wine from Provence, France and then switched to a glass of Bordeaux during the chilling out session, enjoying the mild sweetness of my first drink and then the slightly heavier-bodied Bordeaux's smokier charm. *Gareth started with Champagne followed by a glass of white wine thereafter. Overall, I really enjoyed the ambience, food and wine at The Wine Connection, and would be back for more. It boosts of a quiet atmosphere for catching up. We spent SGD$68.00 in all in total.

Among the many dishes I had ordered for my birthday, I had ordered carbonara (a fail-proof dish for my kids). But when the dish came, the pasta was half-cooked and I had sent it back to the kitchen, asking not to bring me a fresh dish since it had already left a poor taste in our mouth.
The rest of the dishes was ok, but not as good as I remember it to be.
Surprisingly, when the bill came, the carbonara was still being charged. Have to say that in this day and age when dining out is competitive, the staff made no effort to ease my unpleasant experience in this restaurant. Very disappointed.
Doubt will return.
The downside of this place is that they play club-loudness music after a certain time (about 10 or 10.30pm), which makes it impossible to make conversation. Our friends were literally shouting to try to be heard by each other. We asked a few times if the music could be turned down just a little, since this is a sit down wine bar after all and not a dance club, but the manager refused, saying that if the music was softer it would not be nice. After a while we gave up and left. Don't think we will be going there again Soon...
I'm a regular at your place but what happened last night is a total turn off for me, besides the food (very cold potato wedges and my favorite pork ribs was not as nice as before ).
I was given the wrong credit card when I settled the bill. I did remember to check before i signed the bill and it was really charged under my card but given a wrong credit card.
Sometimes mistakes happened so I"m still trying to be understanding but when i did called the outlet i didn't expect that the staff will talk to me unprofessionally, a simple sorry will change everything, but instead he just replied "Oh we are not here last night its not our fault its the night staff on duty's fault etc etc..(too many excuses) so when do u plan to take your card?" after all the trouble that they have caused (not only to me but to the owner of the other card too) no apology as if nothing happened, i can really say that the staffs were not well trained and not courteous enough to handle this kind of situation. Very very disappointed.
