The title says it all, really. Orgo, is short for "Organic Chemistry" and sits on the roof top of Esplanade offering pretty sights of the city skyline, but that's about it. Perhaps it was the inflated reviews about renowned Japanese mixologist Tomoyuki Kitazoe and the promise of using Asian and French ingredients of the finest quality that set expectations somewhat high, like that of its roof, but their food was far from expectations. Perhaps it is because we didn't order their signature dishes

The title says it all, really.

Orgo, is short for "Organic Chemistry" and sits on the roof top of Esplanade offering pretty sights of the city skyline, but that's about it. Perhaps it was the inflated reviews about renowned Japanese mixologist Tomoyuki Kitazoe and the promise of using Asian and French ingredients of the finest quality that set expectations somewhat high, like that of its roof, but their food was far from expectations. Perhaps it is because we didn't order their signature dishes, but with the kind of prices that could get us a 3-course fine dining meal at other restaurants, we were expecting tasty and organic, and they were organic alright, but far from tasty.

Still, I gotta admit, the grapes in cocktail glass and well-design red menu as a start was a nice introduction to our evening. Then came our first shared dish for the night: the Escargot in a Puff Pastry with Tomatoes and Garlic Butter for $18. It came in six pieces and mediocre to say the least. And mediocre could also be used to describe Pan Roasted Rack of Lamb with Cucumber & Yogurt Salad, Sautéed Potatoes and Port Jus that I had for my main course at $34. We were still hungry so we ordered the Creme Brulee with Light Custard with Caramelized Top flavored with Raspberry ($11) and Date Cake topped with Toffee Sauce served with Vanilla Ice Cream, both of which I say was less than mediocre: it sucked. Doesn't help that service was inefficient and inattentive, but hey we already read that from somewhere.

Then what happens when it rains? There is no shelter and you're lucky, you get a chance to move into the glass room which is limited to only 10 px or move to the corner with no views.

Alcoholic were diluted and not mixed very well. Possible that mixologist Tomoyuki Kitazoe wasn't around?
