My Rating: (4.5 out of 5)

Au Jardin! Heard so many good reviews about it from friends. We decided to try it for my special occasion. My BIRTHDAY Celebration! *Winkz* It is so popular that we couldn't manage to reserve on our preferred date. We ordered 2 set dinners ($110 and $150) and 2 glass of wine. It cost us about $368. It is really worth it. From romantic ambience, excellent service to the amazing food. I totally love all the dishes in the set dinner. None of them disappoint me. A perfect celebration!
Ambience
It is located at Botanical Garden. Our Singapore Famous Garden. It was a short walk from the carpark. We were a bit lost when we were trying to locate the restaurant. We called them and manage to get the right directions. Au Jardin is occupying the EJH Corner House. It was named after Edred John Henry Corner, Assistant Director of the Singapore Botanical Gardens who occupied it from 1929 to 1945. The black and white bungalow is one of our Singapore Conservation Buildings. I went on a Friday. It was quite empty. It gives me a comfortable and private feeling. The restaurant was a bit too cold. I would suggest that they control the temperature better. We were seated on the 2nd level and a window seat. Our seat overlooks the botanical gardens. I think the day view would be even better as the greenery would be able to show off themselves better.
Service
The service was excellent. They called us to inform us the nearest carpark. The service staffs were friendly and have a lot of initiative to attend to our needs. When we foot the bill, they also offer to ask us whether we need taxi service. Well Done! Keep up the good work!
Food
We had the following:
~Foie Gras Terrine with Smoked Eel~ foie_gras_terrine_smoked_eel
I totally love the combination. The taste from Foie Gras, Smoked Eel, quince puree and pink lady apple jelly) totally complements well each other.
~Scallop Ceviche~ scallop_ceviche
It look like a little garden with flowers. The scallop is very fresh. The lemon vinaigrette whet my appetite and ready for the next course.
~Alaskan King Crab Pasta~ alaskan_king_crab_pasta
The pasta is very flavorful. The sauce and sakura ebi remind me of the lobster bisque and the sakura ebi.
~Pan Seared Quail Breast with 62 degrees Egg Confit~ egg_confit
The egg confit was well hidden under the fresh truffles. Although I don't know whether the egg was really 62 Degrees Celsius, it is really good and there were really thin slices of FRESH TRUFFLES! Yummy! I still prefer truffles oil especially when it is drizzled on fries.
~Roasted Wagyu Striploin~ roasted_wagyu_striploin
We requested for the wagyu to be done medium. It is so thick, juicy and tender! I love the way they garnish the dish with the vegetables standing beside the wagyu. They also drizzle truffle oil on the vegetables! It make it so aromatic! Truffle Oil! Always my favourite!
~Oven-Roasted Magret Duck Breast~ oven_roasted_magret_duck_breast
Amazing! I was actually stun by the dish! It tastes like a medium well beef but it is really duck! It is tender and juicy. Perfect for beef lovers who can't take beef.
~Pressed Watermelon~ pressed_watermelon
It is made of water melon with red wine sauce, sweet lime jelly and sorbert. It sweet and exotic. I love sorbert!
~Variation of "Noix de Coco"~ noix_de_coco
It is made of fresh coconut flesh with coconut ice cream! Yummy! It is smooth and fragrant!
