Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Back here again after many years; the cuisine has changed to slightly Japanese-European fusion? 😮 and also apparently the head chef as well (didn’t get to know the chef unlike other Michelin-starred restaurants 🤷 but that’s not important) I tried the premium 6-course set lunch;...it was quite good with some outstanding dishes like the kingfish tartare, the poached pear dessert and the bread. There was an interesting dish that resembled ‘spring roll’ but of course it tasted much better 😅 The caviar appetiser was also amazing! Service was exceptional and dishes were served relatively quick but there were not that many people as well. All in all, it was a pleasant lunch that felt good ☺️More

Specially curated 6-course dinner with 1st Growth Burgundy wine pairing. Starting from the raw scallops amuse-bouche and raw beef tartare well balanced with egg yolk and caviar. Paired with white Puligny Montrachet. Followed by classic bouillabaisse which goes well with Chablis. There are 3 tasting...portions of mains: seabass on a bed of leeks paired with Volnay; and duck with foie gras wrapped in Parma ham and paired with Nuit St George. Finally, braised beef cheek with red wine sauce paired with Pommard. Completed this exquisite feast with French cheese platter paired with Vosne Romanée. All that for special price of S$280 pp.More

We have been coming to this restaurant for a long time and now with a new chef, we feel that the standard has moved up a lot. We enjoyed a wonderful 5-course wine pairing dinner with wines from Fratelli Alessandria. Amuse bouches of raw king...fish, tuna with caviar and beef cake. Starters were freshly prepared venison tartare and sumptuous pan fried scallops. Mains included aged duck breast and spicy rendang wagyu brisket. Well complemented with cheese platter.More

I was very, very disappointed. With all the great restaurants in Singapore, I am surprised that this won a Michelin star. I think people speak with their feet, and the place was 80% empty on a weekday night. The food was quite ok, but you...can find such quality in mid-range restaurants. The service was good though.More

This is our 3rd time to Alma. 1st 2 experiences were good hence we came back for 3rd and it did not disappoint. We had the 5 course Tasting Menu. Overall food taste and presentation were great. Nothing over the top. The only down side...is the portion, which is for tasting literally. Hence the serving of potato bread at the side (add on upon request) is a nice touch. My teenage son, with a healthy appetite, is particular fond of the bread. Service, as usual, was attentive. On the whole, the whole dinner experience were great and we will be back many more times.More

Booked for my husband’s birthday. (Wrote this on online reservation, but no one seemed to know.) The quality of the food was excellent, perhaps deserving of the Michelin star. The servers were also attentive. However, the overall ambience of the restaurant was disappointing. The bright...lights that greeted us as we walked in reminded me more of a daytime cafe than a fine dining restaurant. I was also surprised to see other diners dressed casually in shorts! I thought, “This was a mistake!” It was also a bit noisy, partly because there is limited soft furnishings. Finally, the red carpet from the entrance to the restaurant looks tacky to me. That said, our cocktails — whiskey sour and daiquiri — were good, and the food was excellent. We shared the tofu and Angel hair pasta for appetisers, and the crispy toothfish and striploin for mains. We would’ve had the apple pie for dessert, but learned it would take 20min (this should be on the menu), so we left without dessert or coffee. At $200+ per person, I don’t think I would go back, nor would I recommend Alma for dinner. For a casual lunch and at a fraction of the price, I might be tempted to try it again.More

As a party of 5, we enjoyed every course of the wine dinner at Alma. From the amuse-bouches, to the perfectly done venison slices and Hokkaido scallops as starters. And the 2 main dishes of delicious chicken risotto and beautifully prepared aged beef tenderloin. A...wonderful meal finished with a cheese platter. We also thoroughly enjoyed the Australian wine from MollyDooker winery.More

Each dish is a culinary symphony masterfully prepared with the...best ingredients. The attentive personnel made certain that every detail of our eating experience was taken care of.

This is my second time in Alma. Not a very fancy place but has a classic elegance and a good place where you can enjoy fine-dining food and service at down-to-earth prices. We came in a group of 4 and was recommended their newly curated...menu of a 2-course or 3-course executive lunch. We eventually opted for their 2-course executive lunch option which was reasonably priced and ordered separately their famous apple pie for dessert. As everything on the menu looks super tempting, we decided to choose different selections from each other just to check things out. Our 2-course executive lunch do come with a complimentary snack which sparks both our excitement and appetite with its multiple unique flavors. Next, we were served our favorite toasted hot potato bun that everyone enjoyed so much with their delicate butter spread. Then came the appetizers and mains that were so beautifully plated that we had to snap these delicacies with our phone camera before eating. Overall, I would rate the food quality as excellent as every bite have a wonderful mixture of textures and tastes that pleases our palate. We round off our meal with the apple pie which was delicious, not too sweet and a perfect combination with the ice cream that was served with it. Overall, it was a pretty good lunch. The service was terrific – staff was attentive and helpful. For this price and food quality, I will definitely come again and would recommend others to try at least once.More

It's nice to visit the newly renovated Alma. The whole place looks really fresh and stylishly simple and yet homely. Then I was pleasantly surprised by their new Menus that offer flexibility - you can choose ala carte or set. Then another surprise - >...Pocket Friendly Price! The food is fabulous - every morsel taste like a party in the mouth with lots of flavors - sweet, sour, spicy . All that titillate the senses. Don't miss the dessert. Then the range of wine and whisky is out of this world. We had a blast!More

I was excited and happy when I was told we were eating at Alma. The restaurant had a dazzling display of Macallan wines and an impressive display of Mitchell Awards. The Lobster Bisque with chives and crème fraîche was a rich and creamy delight, with...the velvety bisque perfectly balancing the sweetness of the lobster. The crispy skin of the Threadfin was delicious. It was cooked with Nyonya spice, onion soufflé and artichoke to perfection . The dish was perfectly seasoned with the right amount of spices, and the onion soufflé and artichoke added a lovely texture and depth to the dish. The dessert was the perfect ending to a wonderful meal. The apple tart had a perfect balance of sweetness and tanginess.More
