For 15 years... the vines seafood and steak restaurant has been serving the public well at novena ville. On the 6th of January 2013, they have closed their doors and is now operating at their other outlet at cantonment..
When i dined there last year and a few times before... i would say that their service is top notch fantastic.
Their servings... awesome and their ambience is fantastic. One of the best settings i have ever experienced in my life.
For starters, be prepared to ordered what you really want to eat as i was spoilt for choice.
Appetizer: I ordered cheese fries
Result: So-so because it was a little sweet.. for me i cannot mix sweet mayo or anything with fries. Even for mcdonalds fries, i do not eat with the chili sauce or tomato ketchup! Its so natural! It was served on a warm casserole dish so it was just ok to me.
Entree: I usually have the ribeye steak with the baked potato with a sambal sauce... Now if you are thinking sambal sauce... think again... sambal sauce is nice and a little sweet. When it comes with meat.. im more or less ok with a little sweetness but i wanna taste the meat.
Result: I ordered medium for the beef as i wanted it to be a little juicy and also a little bit bloody...
It was perfect for me... Im super particular for the beef... If memory serves me right.. it was about $23 for the ribeye..
Other options include surf and turf such as chicken, lobster, giant prawns mix and match combos...
Dessert: Green Tea Cake!
Verdict: nice but not my taste...
The service is fantastic... there is this particular gentlemen... i am pretty sure he is the boss or manager or something like that... He treats his customers right and engages in conversations with the customers. There was once he even sang happy birthday alone to someones birthday. If there is someone i respect for customer service... It is this guy! Honestly! No other guy i have seen can match his charisma!
I would want to visit the outlet in cantonment to see how it is like..
