Me and my wife was at Grissini (Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel) for the Omikase Lunch. The food is exquisite and well prepared. And the service was top notch (thank you Patrick). We will come back again, very soon. PS: The view is beautiful, too.

Set lunch is affordable, filling and pretty good. Will come again for sure. Highlights are the squid ink cracker, Lobster with homemade pasta and the best one is the beef. It’s able to get the Smokey flavors from herbs and spices which bring the flavors...to a different level.More

Lunch here was excellent. A lot of care and attention was put into the preparing and plating of the dishes. From the amuse bouche to the appetiser, to the main course, dessert and petit cinq (cos it was 5 items, not four) This was topped...by the warm, friendly and professional wait staff Patrick and Selina who shared with us in great detail what was being served. The star of the show for me was the chocolate tart. It was the best I have ever had. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. I hear they change their menu all the time so I look forward to all the yummy stuff Chef has planned.More

Came here for our annivery celebration.. From the start to the end of the whole omakse course, it filled with burst of surprises in a good way succeedingly with each course served. The restaurant staff service is hospitable and the staff earnestly introduced each dishes...with much vigour. The dishes curated by Chef Kenny are impeccable and the quality fresh ingredients used for each courses complemented well. The texture, flavour, and aroma are all on point. At the end of the dinner, Chef Kenny is friendly and he came out to ask for our feedbacks and imparted some of his culinary knowledge from how to choose the best ingredients and all. My partner and I have an out of world dining experience. We will be back again for more!!More

Do try the mushroom soup! Really rich and goes well with their freshly baked bread. The mains are very good as well! Steak was slightly charred (perfectly done in my opinion) and juicy! Both the rib eye and the tenderloin 👍🏻 Sea bass was also...very tasty. For dessert, do try their pistachio gelato and the fragole all’aceto balsamico!!! (Picture is of the Rib Eye!)More

Had quite a nice lunch there today, with excellent service by Patrick and his female team member (sorry but did not get her name). They were both friendly yet professional in their dealings with customers, stopping by often to top up water or to check...on the meal. Foodwise, there were more hits than misses. The wife and I loved the burrata, which was light and fresh tasting, with its mini tomatoes, proscuitto and honey melon balls. The amuse bouche was also delightful. I loved the vongole, which was robust but not heavy in taste. The pasta was al dente and the clams super fresh. The wife had the risotto with foie gras ($10 supplement), and was delighted with the first few spoonfuls. However, she said she found it a little jelak or heavy going at the end of the dish. I tried a few spoonfuls and I liked it, though the crispy foie gras was a tad ununsual. My dessert of pistachio ice cream was a generous portion, and it was not too sweet, which was great. The biscuit crumble also gave a nice touch of texture. The missus did not fully enjoy the tiramisu ($6 supplement) with the amaretto as she felt it was super creamy and heavy and needed a touch more texture. The surroundings were a little dated, especially as we needed to come up from the carpark through the mall next door.More

Had a lunch “date” here with the teenage offspring and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The lunch set was very good value. We were served a small morsel of Parma ham and truffle cream as an amuse bouche accompanied with a generous bread basket that had 2...sticks of Grissini as a nod to the restaurant’s name. As a perfect first bite it certainly tickled our mouth for what was to come. Buratta with tricolor tomatoes looked and tasted of Italian summers. The star dish was Chef Kenny’s risotto with foie gras. Perfect al dente rice obviously cooked with the best stock and the unctuous balance of cheesy goodness stunned us into silence as we shoveled mouthfuls in. The meal was completed with a scoop of gelato served beautifully in a martini glass and a cup of good solid coffee. Service was friendly- the teenage offspring asked for something other than coffee or tea and was obliged with a glass of fresh sugar cane with lemon. It pleased him very much indeed. Mum, this is like fine dining, he cried! Did I mention the starched white table cloths, heavy fancy cutlery and river view? During this challenging time, it brought us an afternoon of happiness.More
