We went to Cé La Vi yesterday, we had an overall great experience.

Just one to point out one issue. The staff who chaperoned us to our table asked us if we'd want some still or sparkling water without being proactive that it was chargeable ($12 before GST). It's not that we can't afford it but would it be better if diners are informed and not surprised with "oooh, they're gonna charge us and we don't know how much"? What's weird is that we noticed that when other group of diners said "no", they will still be served with house water, which I believed is FOC.

I know you'd want to charge more to customers, but please don't do it that way. We'd be happy to order chargeable bottled waters if we fancy one. Or maybe not because there's FOC house water and glasses of cocktails would suffice.

If you'll take time to read feedback online, it's been a repetitive issue for many first-time diners. I hope you could be more considerate.

Everything was fine, just the management is too weak, our sitting area only had 1 serve which is Ben, he did a great job and try to take care of all his guest. However, while we wanted to place an order for food, we raised our hand couple times, and we been calling for services for around 10 minutes, there is no staff to assist us. We saw there are a lot of staff just standing near the bar area, but no one want to come forward to us. Which gave us really impression. Really disappointed with the management. Ben not u!!! U deserve better...

Ambience was great.
Service was great.

My hubby made a reservation at Ce La Vi to celebrate my birthday. We did not manage to catch the stunning city view from the Skypark during our staycation in December due to bad weather and wanted to use this occasion to do that.
However, the whole experience at the high-profile restaurant made us regret this decision. Poor hospitality started from the check-in counter, average food that came with a high price (it is only expensive because of the lack of quality). We spent almost $350 for 2A/1C to get mediocre of everything, except for the stunning view of course. I won't forget a $20 sushi roll that we can get for $3 at a supermarket....the wagyu beef starter was the only saving grace.
There wasn't even a birthday greeting....super super disappointing and I will never step into Ce La Vi again, not even for drinks!

The view was amazing, at the top of Marina Bay Sands. The whole marina area can be seen unblocked. Gardens by the Bay is right below, and looks very different from the bird eye view from there. However, the food was just normal, and quite overpriced. The sauce was a bit on the sweet side, and the portion was small for a main course. I would not come back for the food, but maybe for the amazing view from the top.
