I'm so impressed by Chef Peter's thoughtful execution of dinner service. Absolutely delicous food, plate after plate - my fave were the scallops, octopus and lamb - you can absolutely feel the love! It would have been a sweeter experience if the same attention and...finesse was experienced from the service manager. We were seated at a very dimly lit table at the corner and felt neglected at times, but the food ruled the day, and definitely going back for more!More

We have visited a few times and the food has been outstanding on every visit. The Hokkaido scallop crudo, octopus and lamb chops are worth coming back for time and again. Their desert selection has the usual suspects such as Tiramisu and gelato which are...quite good. However I would highly recommend their cannoli - it is rare to find such an authentic rendition of this Sicilian gem outside of Italy. Attentive and polite service from Mr. Mani and Mr. Marcus. Thank you Mr. Mani for remembering us on each visit and making us feel right at home!More

Just had a great dinner experience at The Cliff restaurant at Sofitel Sentosa. The food was nice Italian fare overlooking the sea. My wife Vanessa and myself we shared a egg & bacon pizza, malfade pasta which was ribbon pasta with tomato puree and a...truffle fries. Thanks to Alson and his team of service staff who did a fantastic service recovery. So what happened was that my wife Vanessa had called in to the main sofitel hotline 67088310 on Thursday 28th July 2022 evening at 930pm to make a reservation for our Saturday 30th July 7pm-715pm. The lady on the service line told her it was confirmed for 2 pax and see us on Saturday.Throughout the days leading to this dinner Friday and even till Saturday there were no calls by the restaurant. Normally all restaurants would still callback to the diners. So when my wife called today Saturday at around 4plus pm to confirm on our reservation to our horror they claimed they couldn't find her booking. Can you imagine our anger and frustration? If we did not bother to call and check, and drive in all the way to Sentosa we would have been flatly denied at no fault of ours. Let's be clear our reservations were CONFIRMED by the customer service lady on thursday, it was not waiting for a callback or pending so no assumptions to this. So to hear that the restaurant was FULL and her name NOT on the list was shocking. But kudos to the customer service agent Kathy from Sofitel Sentosa. She made contact with the restaurant and went all bounds to make this dinner possible. Also Alson and the rest of the cliff service team were polite and took great care of us. We appreciate the kind gesture of the tiramisu dessert towards the end though we were absolutely filled. Would definitely come back for the food and views in futureMore

From the outset we were greeted by a very friendly maitre'd Angela who happy arranged for our special seat at the corner of the restaurant. She also welcomed us warmly when it was time for dinner. Mani took us to our table and brought us...physical menus even though the have the QR code versión. This helped us a lot in browsing through the menu. We met Nataliya who gave us advice on the dishes to try and the order with which to have them. Together they make a great team helping us with our needs but never intrusive and always earnest and polite. They epitomises the best in hospitality. For too long we had to suffer the incompetence and unprofessional service of other establishment. Highly recommend this restaurant for its ambience, view and exceptional service.More

Kind of regular visitors now. Good to see they changed the menu (though white based pizzas disappeared). We ordered the Alla Bolognese and Crab+Broccoli pizza this time for lunch. The pasta was okay not great and a bit salty , pizza dough base was good...though a bit more toppings should be way better. Quantity of crab meat was okay but definitely not enough broccoli (each slice just got one single tiny piece, what the heck). Worst of the day, the dessert Gelato, costing 12 dollars and... See the photo on how it's served... I don't mind the price tag even if it's the same content but please, is serving it like this a proper way for the signature restaurant of a hotel this class? Utterly disappointed Let me get it straight, you buy a big tub and scoop it to serve in a bowl is still better. It's probably cheaper for you and less packaging overall.More

With a setting like this, overlooking the bay, this restaurant has a great advantage over many others. Whether through complacency or just poor management and training, the restaurant falls short. Basics missing. We booked, arrived and there was nobody to check us in. Two staff...were huddled over the computer as we waited for five minutes, gave and walked in. Eventually we were seated. The wrong drinks were brought to the table, then the mistake was compounded by arguing that we had ordered other drinks. In a restaurant of this standard, you might expect some pre- meal tasters; olives or bread or both. There was nothing. The main meals were tasty but very meagre in size, unlike the prices. There was no courtesy check during the meal, “ How is the food, etc.” My drink then disappeared from the table before I had finished it. Finally, the combination of soft jazz and a JCB pounding away in the building site next door does not make for a good atmosphere. Overall, the impression is complacency; there will be customers, they will eat and pay, even if they never returnMore

Beautiful setting with relaxing music. Scrumptious meal that is authentic Italian, none of those localized versions. Alson the manager runs a tight ship with a well oiled team that attended to our every need with earnest enthusiasm. Angela managed to help us find an available...slot after much rescheduling which we are grateful for. All in all a lovely evening hanging out in the breeze with wandering peacocks poking their heads about. This feels like an exotic palace….More
