It was a really nice experience! Food was good, ambience was good, staff were helpful. I guess the only thing missing were desserts! Oh, and it seems like there weren't any vegetarian options. Can consider!
The food and ambience were fantastic! Wood and steel was much quieter and emptier than the Tex mex, so it has a more private feel. You're able to cross order from tex mex even if you're eating at wood and steel. However, people who are prone to sea/motion sickness should be mindful that Wood and Steel is located at the uppermost/second uppermost deck hence the rocking is much more pronounced especially during windy/choppy waters!
The food, the atmosphere and the service are good. surprised that the staff can recognize me.. thumb ups
The service is really good and the food is delicious as well. Nice atmospehere and ambience for a date. Excellent restaurant and price is reasonable as well.
The food was excellent in both quality and presentation. We ordered nachos, salted chicken wings, dirty crazy fries and chilli crab spaghetti. The staff went beyond our expectation. They were friendly even when we were considering going to the other restaurant downstairs. They were humorous, sincere when talking about the new menu items, proactive in attending to us. The scenery was great: overlooking to Marina Bay area or out to the sea where ships were lighting up in the evening. When there's a boat departing or arriving at the nearby dock, waves and shivering are expected. Overall, it's a value-for-money, romantic and comfortable place.
A different kind of dining experience... alfresco (non air-con) and on the top-deck of this boat, which is going nowhere, but still feel it roll-and-sway abit. Nice and enthusiastic staff members with keen service sense. Thumbs-up! Food is so-so... abit not consistent... strip-loin steak for wife was nice done but not for my younger girl. Had to return it to the kitchen 2x for being too rare and then too tough to even cut... even the wait-staff could not give an explanation why it happened. Also could have a wider spread of salads and hot-foods on the buffet table. Overall, an evening let down by the food issue, was saved by the staff. Kudos to them. As to whether to go again... hmmm... really need a strong reason to do so... Cheers!
Great location. The boat top restaurant is an unique experience. You can see the MBS, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Flyer etc from the tables while the strong ocean breeze keeps you cool. The rocking boat makes it even more fun. Moreover, the food is really good. We a Little Lamb had Mary and Hail the King, and especially the Lamb was just too good. Highly recommended.
Beautiful ambience, really rustic and industrial feel. Sitting next to open sea and feeling the natural breeze while eating is quite an experience not to be missed haha. Food portions were good and large enough; the drinks, while lacking an alcoholic kick, were really well-crafted and delicious. Overall, a really good experience, especially with the attentive and friendly service staff!
Due to some reasons, limited food selection and slightly long waiting time for food, but tip top and friendly service standard. Great ambience, great view and good food. Crew were friendly and constantly interacting with customers. Pork belly was juicy and crispy and the portion for its pizza is huge for a good 3-4 pax. What a great way to celebrate our anniversary on board. Just a warning to those has motion sickness, do rmb to pop some motion sickness pill before boarding the riverboat. 👍👍👍
On the whole, more of a negative experience as they forgot to bring us to our tables, forgot our orders and in all we had to wait for 40-50 min before we could got our food. The band performances were not really our cup of tea, it was a little too loud for us to enjoy our dinner. However, it was my friend's birthday and they gave her a complimentary lava cake with ice cream. was a nice gesture of them.
