food was excellent.. desert was yummy and delicious. . environment was great.
Table of 8, all happy. Already booked a return visit
Their food quality is very consistent and the service is very fast.
The dessert is so awesome and the air con is cooling. Place is clean.
Fresh ingredients and great tasting food (if a little under seasoned) made less enjoyable by really horrible cocktails. Had all the ingredients to make an old fashioned but bartender sent the waiter back to inform that only cocktails on the menu can be ordered (unless they didnt have bitters, in which case its a failed bar to begin). The Negrori had more vermouth than Campari&Gin and was so diluted it felt like drinking cheap cordail. Bloody mary was a bloody mess of (again) diluted tomato juice with enough tobasco to waste your tastebuds, and there wasn't even a hint of vodka. Even the Mojito was nothing more than crushed ice with lime with alcohol (if any) dispensed from a pipette. It was the night before a public holiday and by 9 the service staff were visibly running of out gust. Still, appreciated their excellent service! (at least from all but one who served us).
We had 2 sets of the festive menu which included some bubbly to start with. We had truffle soup and smoked salmon for starters - great! For our mains, pork belly and cod. Pork belly had lots of lean meat but good amount of fats as well. Cod was super fresh and taste was really good. However, both dishes were slightly too salty. Tiramisu pavlova and epic brownie for desserts. Former was good. Latter was rich, a bit too much after a heavy dinner. Brownie was ordered in place of lemon tart as they had ran out. Atmosphere brilliant as usual at jamie's @ forum.
I used to be happy with their service from previous visits but staff seemed mostly new that day. Gave us the bill even if we did not ask for it yet. We said we are still eating, bring it later. About ten mins later she comes back and asks if we want to get our bill. There were no people waiting to be seated and there were a couple of empty tables so I don't get why the rush.. our pasta was barely touched so we asked to be packed for takeaway but after waiting they came back and said sorry it was thrown away.
This branch in Forum Galleria has great decor and is very stylishly lit. The food quality was pretty good. I had the pork chops and it was very well done and very tasty. My friend has their prawn linguini and it was also very good. Only complaint is that portions are not really large and we both left still a bit hungry. The side order of skinny fries was also pretty mediocre, and def not worth the $8 price tag. They could expand their menu more, and offer more choices, especially side dishes.
The food was really nice and not really excessively priced either. Had a 6pm booking so didn't expect to be too busy that early. But it was slow getting served initially and then it seemed several others who ordered after us were getting served. Staff then came and told us it would be a few mins and then there was almost 10mins between the 2 main meals being served. Usually better than that.
This was our first time at this or any Jamie Oliver restaurant. We were blown away by the quality of the food and the intensity of all the flavours. Our waitress did an outstanding job looking after us. Only the Maitre'D would need to be a bit more attentive and sociable. But overall a wonderful experience!
