Seasonal Tastes - The Westin Singapore
Food choices were rather limited for the price. Sunday brunch was supposed to come with kids activities but they were very limited. It was just cookie decoration (without staff guidance) and giving of balloons, which ended at 2pm.
With the one for one promotion, it is worth it. The spread is limited though.
Reception is important but we waited for some time before being received to our table.
Food variety doesn't command the price. Similar priced buffet has a better spread.
Food replenishment is slow especially worse when restaurant is almost full.
Birthday cake surprise for those celebrating birthday was pathetic and impersonal.
Overall, it's not worthwhile for a second visit unless some things are fixed.
Good choices for non vegetarians and a good dessert spread but vegetarian spread could be improved.
For a price of 104 SGD per person (including Service Charge & GST), the food selection is a bit disappointing (I expect to see more). For this price, I was expecting to eat Black pepper Sri Lanka Crab instead of Black Pepper flower crab. This is the second disappointment.
Nice ambience. Great food and friendly service crew.
The buffet spread is value for money, food are fresh. Nice dessert table too. Laksa is nice but can be richer in taste. Need to improve on the roasted food section.(Tried the roast beef and pork knuckle which is quite disappointing.) The fried fish fillet with passionfruit sauce is a surpise, fish is fried well and the sauce make the dish so refreshing.
Great food and ambiance !
I have been to seasonal tastes for more than 10 times. The food variety is getting much lesser and I do hope that the oysters can be serve not only during the weekends. missing on the snow crab legs also.
I made a booking at opentable yet when I went to the restaurant they remove my booking. I had to find the email of the confirmed booking reservation to show them! This could be due to the poor service at opentable or the restaurant staff had intentionally remove our booking. This is a very disturbing behaviour and does not reflect well of the hotel management. Please look into it if you care about your business . This is not the way you serve your Customers
We had a pleasant dining experience and the staff were very accommodating. Unfortunately 2 of my family members fell ill afterwards and we can only attribute it to something they ate on the buffet. This is quite surprising and disappointing for a hotel of this standard. We have dined at this restaurant on many prior occasions and I know that Chritsmas is an exceptionally busy time, however the standards of quality must be maintained.
Good for value with discounts. The food is so so. The service is good.
I like the seafood and cheese selection. The buffet is great since I love seafood. However, not many cooked food choices and the beef isn’t that delicious. Dessert selection is amazing, although only a few was actually good. But it was a feast for the eyes to see many colorful desserts on display, and I really appreciate that there was log cake as a choice too. Surprisingly the pecan nuts is very fresh and fragrant, and it was thoughtful that gluten free ciabatta was available. Will definitely be back again.
Good value after applied dbs one for one promotion.
The check out was poor
Food wasn't very good, not enough variety, although Laksa was likely best. Probably better to increase the price and provide better spread of dishes, given the location and restaurant is quite nice.
Nice place for dinner. Great for crab lovers with its generous servings.
With 1-1 promotion only then it’s worth trying.. Not a lot of variety though. Dessert corner is attractive..
The rest was very poorly managed
Coffee machine not working
Waited for 20 min for buttet and no apology
Staff are so rude
As if u r not the paying customers
And u owe the staff
Ask to have feedback letter and was not given at all
The manager dont even approah to understand why
With the credit card promotion of 1 for 1 , it is worth the value. Responsive service.
Food was not bad , but the refill rate is poor, need queue 3 mins to get food
Good food with nice ambience. Lobster claws, crayfish, prawns, chilli crabs are good!
Very fresh seafood. Worth every penny! Hope the standard won't drop after all positive reviews. Good job!
The Lobster was not as fresh as the previous time when we went.
We asked for a window seat but we end up very close to the entrance and plates disposal area. With two kids , the seating is very risky to accidents !
We were expecting some non spicy cooked food but most of the food are spicy and raw and my dad can’t take much of spicy so he didn’t really enjoy the meal.
But we enjoyed the lobster and mussels - they are fresh.
For drinks it was stated free flow of mocktails but we did not see any. For tea, there is no tea bags available but the mint tea was nice .
I have another reservation coming up on 27-sep, with my friends. For birthday celebration. Hope this round we can have a window seating..
The ambience was good as the view from 32 floor was great, but was sad that during lunch buffet the choice of fresh seafood not many and the clams and mussel does not taste good. But the crab is fresh and tasty. Sashimi only have salmon which was quite pathetic. Will come again if they improve their menu. The Service was fair too, replacement of plates and food was prompt.
Too little food variety. There are a few window seats available even after I finish eating for 2 hours, but I was told that the window seats are reserved . Dont you guys know the reservation Timing? I ate for 2 hours, a few window seats are still empty, u guys should gave window seats to me first.
Overall , it was good. but Seasonal tastes is no drink. have only coffee. i wash a drink your place.
Celebrating my partner birthday.. kind of last min dining at Westin.. approach staff if i could hav at least a little cake for my partner and staff was very helpful to make it happen for me.. surprising my partner with a mini cake and a candle. Very good service! Will definitely come back and highly recommended!!
Price at $88++ is on the high side base on your current spread.
Acceptable on 1-for-1 pricing.
Surprise there wasn’t any dishes with chicken or did I missed it ?
Overall service from staff was good except for the male captain/manager...
“We don’t have space for you to put your birthday cake in our fridge/chiller” which was recommended to be keep refrigerated when I bought it.
Food was average. Steak was rare and wasn’t tasty.
Selection can be improved
Seasonal taste has good ambience and view
Value for money, would appreciate more dishes for main course, the sirlion steak needs to improve on its marbling, maybe use a different cut of meat, rib eye or beef ribs
Food was OK but they recently increased the price for the buffet.
Birthday celebration. Food was very salty. Too much crab dishes for the night resulting not much variety for the buffet spread.
I'll definitely come back. tasty crabs, cold lobster, laksa, beef strip (can be cooked near Medium else too red) and dessert!
There was much written about Seasonal Taste and that was one of the reasons my friends and I decided to give it a go. And for the price we were paying, which is a lot, naturally we were expecting more, but we only found disappointment.
Spread was not as wide as we expected. The meats were always slow to replenish and there were many moments we found ourselves waiting for it to come out from the kitchen (Same goes for some of the other items including the seafood). Most of the time the cuts were poor and the doneness was too rare.
Atmosphere was great. Good views for sure. We got a corner table which was quite a distant from the main area. Thus the service we got was not the best either. Took a while for our plates to be cleared or for our cups to be replenished.
Overall it was really a mediocre experience. In terms of value, it was all the more disappointing as the price we paid clearly did not match the experience we walked away with.
Sincerely hope for some service recovery to restore customers' confidence
The food is not bad and could be improve. (No oyster which is a disappointment)
Fish soup/ lasksa is good. need to increase the variety is not a lot. Compare to the line 1 for 1 is lose.
I read a lot of positive feedback about Seasonal taste but my experience on a Saturday lunch was just "okay". Nothing fantastic. I guessed the feedback could be on Dinner and they could have better dinner spread. I went for lunch and found the spread acceptable, comparable to many other hotels'. Also found that they are slow to replenish the items. Price is reasonable especially with the 50% for second person promo. On the whole, not too bad but not fantastic experience. Do not mind going back if there are group gathering etc., But will not rave about the experience.
At $98++ the variety and value is too low for this dinner buffet
The variety is what you will see at most lunch buffet of about 6 stations with 3 to 5 choices each
No snow crabs
Chilled or thaw lobsters, usual mussels, prawns and small to medium crabs
Cooked crabs and vegetables
1 type of sashimi
No eel or swordfish
Just one type of roast beef
Decent cakes and dessert
Laksa or noodles
Indian rice , paneer and lentil
The good items are chocolate cake , prawns, and Cesar salad and ambience
The environment is very good and the food needs to be improved. For example, cooked food is not much selective, sashimi only has salmon. If you only like to eat crabs, lobster people are worth the choice.
