    Was wandering around United Square with my gf deciding what to eat for dinner when we chanced upon this eatery/watering hole.

    Tucked in a rather obscure corner of United Square, it is hidden from the crowds that descend upon the other more prominent food outlets in the area. This isn't a bad thing at all, considering that it provides a welcome respite from all the hustle and bustle. The interior of the place is simply charming. A high ceiling coupled with an overhanging chandelier against a red wall backdrop provides a feeling of space and relaxation. Add the comfy window seats and soft background music to the equation and viola, you have a nice chill out place.

    Nicely presented with a slice of bread, the mushroom soup didn't quite meet expectations. It came across as a little runny and tasteless although it was made from grounded mushrooms. A little salt might have done wonders. And at $8 a bowl, it certainly didn't come cheap.

    Long Fed Ribeye - According to the waiter who recommended this dish to me, long fed beef has its fats within the slab of meat, whereas normal beef has fats around the edges. Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but I infer that its something similar to Wagyu then? The beef was served almost well done and strangely enough, the waiter didn't ask me how I wanted it to be done when he took my order. I wonder why. That aside, the ribeye was surprisingly tender for its doneness, but lacked the succulence that I would have enjoyed. Size wise was probably about 180g - 200g. The accompanying mushroom sauce was a little diluted and light on the flavours. I would have preferred a more robust sauce honestly.

    The Coppa Noce sounded absolutely tempting but like the mushroom soup, fell a little short. The Maple Walnut ice cream had no hint of maple syrup whatsoever whereas the Straciatella had a slight tinge of coffee aftertaste. Nothing spectacular really.

    $60 for 1 pax (I did all the eating) is pretty steep for the quantity and quality of food served. To top it off, I wasn't exactly stuffed up after the meal, which says pretty much about the quantity I guess. Service is good but food quality really needs to move up a notch or else all the good service and ambience will still amount to zilch.
