We loved every single bit of it. So glad I chose Fort to celebrate my partner’s birthday! Will definitely recommend Fort to all who wants to have a good time.
Perfect place for dinner w loved one! Birthday boy was elated! Would definitely be back again to try other dishes! Highly recommended to all who is celebrating a special day! :)
Friendly and wonderful staff, especially Matteo, who made sure we had a really great time! Not to mention those pretty bespoke cocktails and delicious food!
We had such a great time. The service was excellent! The staff was super nice and hospitable. Would definitely recommend for celebrations or a nice intimate time
Great restaurant! Wonderful food, quiet and lovely ambiance, out of the way location is perfect for a quiet dinner. Wish that the 12 course dinner that we chose has a bit more meats especially the vegetarian noodles.. would have been great with some pork belly! Everything was delicious and fresh and the cocktails inspiring! They did a wonderful job surprising my boyfriend with a little surprise with our dessert. The staff was beyond amazing.. they got to know us and were genuine and thoughtful all around. Absolutely loved the customized cocktails and the infused vodkas/gins! Looking forward to another special occasion to go back!
Cosy restaurant/bar. Mostly bar seats. Enjoyed our Omakase set, which was great value. Loved the oyster shooter, foie gras nigiri, and salmon slider. Only miss was the tuna sushi, which was too spicy for both of us. The cocktails were AMAZING! We just told the bartender what we felt like... sweet/sour/spicy/fruity/whatever, and he just went to do his thing... coming back with MAGIC 😄. Will go back again.
Quite disappointed. No surprise of the omakase. They just use the normal normal food for the omakase... no sashimi at all.... no expensive ingredients... but the price of this set of omakase ($68++ per pax) not cheap though... if using this price, I can eat an expensive dinner in a nice restaurant. We were also unhappy about the way the waiter served us.... we were the 1st customer that evening, but he arranged the seats that got water dropping from the top.... there were around 20+ seats in the restaurant... only those 2 seats got issue!!! We realized water dropping while most customers were in... so we could not choose better seats....
Loved the ambience and decor. Food was pretty good, some interesting courses. Dessert was a little disappointing, matcha ice-cream with bits of vanilla (which was a bit dry and chalky). The bespoke cocktails were good but rather pricey. I didn't appreciate that they opened 2 bottles of water (and charged us accordingly) at the same time. 1 would have been enough, probably. Service was otherwise good.
There always surprise for every visit.. Go experience it yourself to have the surprise. Do highlight if you are allergic to any food as the chef will fine tune it so you can enjoy the food too
There is some value given that you're paying $68++ for a 12 course meal. But to coin it as an omakase meal is a bit of an overstatement given how everyone else are served the same dishes during each sitting; the novelty of "Omakase" isn't there at all. Cocktails are surprisingly good but $24++ for one is almost a third of the meal itself. Average in conclusion.
