First Review by ouikouik

Loved the appetizers!! - Edit

Went for the lunch set and loved the appetizers!! Especially the “salmon” sashimi. The texture was amazing! 😆 Only downside was the main, I got the risotto and it was just ok, nothing special about it.

Pros: “Salmon” Sashimi

Suberb vegetarian - Edit

We went for the 6-course lunch menu. It looked and tasted great. Really bang-for-buck (2 persons 56 €).
Friendly staff.

Creative Fine Dining - Edit

We found Joie to be truly memorable with their creative, artistic presentations. They gave us great options within the whole food plant based diet we use. Each presentation was better than the last presentation so we photographed them all! There are very few fine dining vegan restaurants in the world. If you enjoy fine dining this is well worth the trip.

Pros: rooftop setting, attentive service, creative presentations

Cons: multi-course meals take a couple of hours to enjoy

Come for lunch if you must - Edit

Had dinner here and it was alright. Seven-course meal for about SGD70 per person plus tax and service charge. Lunch is six-course and costs only half as much! Had I known that I would've definitely done lunch instead.

They do have a vegan menu available on request. Food was pretty good for the most part with some dishes better than the others. In particular I'd recommend against the risotto in that mine was weirdly loose and borderline soupy.

There was just something about the décor that didn't jibe with me. Maybe it was the dark theme... It just felt a little pretentious. It has the facade of an upscale restaurant but simply misses the mark. For example, the two light fixtures in our dining room had all but several light bulbs burned out and yet no one seemed to care to replace them. Service was attentive and very efficient, if not a bit rushed and robotic. Our waiter tried her best to explain what was being served but most of the time we couldn't understand a single word.

On the whole it was a passable experience. Glad to have tried it but probably wouldn't return.

Pros: attentive staff

Cons: décor, rushed service

One of two of my best gourmet vegan meal's of the year - Edit

I only joined happy cow reviewing now and wanted to recognize some of the outstanding places I've eaten in the past year as I travel a lot and am vegan. Joie was one of the best if not the best. The atmosphere is modern chic and the food is simply outstanding. There are limited options as a vegan but what there is is extremely tasty and beautifully presented: the food comes as an artwork. It is also highly creative. The only negative part was that when I went they didn't have any special desert beyond fresh fruit (which was beautifully presented) and didn't seem able to create something on the spot - they should set their minds to putting together delicious vegan deserts which are wholly possible. Whilst expensive, this is a place to go for food that stimulates all the right parts of the palate: highly recommended!!

Pros: Ambience wonderful, Food creative, subtle, artistic, great service

Cons: Should develop vegan desert

Well presented average tasting food - Edit

As so often with these kind of "fine dining" places you pay for the presentation rather than the quality of the food. Expect beautifully plated tasting dishes that please the eye but not so much the taste buds, let alone the stomach.
None of the courses were particularly creative or well done but most of them where alright. I had to pass on a flavourless soup that came luke warm and was very disappointed with a "risotto" that was more of a porridge (no bite to it at all). The starter and dessert I enjoyed but the best part was probably the complimentary "spaghetti snacks" right at the start.
I think it is possible to have a good time here just do not get your hopes about the food up too high. It does not live up to its reputation. And do not come hungry! The lunch set was about 50 dollar and half of our group went to grab a bite right after.

Pros: Nice ambience, Beautiful plating

Cons: Rather boring food, Small portions, Unprofessional staff

AMAZING food! - Edit

This place is incredible, the cooks are artists - they should get an award for their food!
As a vegan, ask for the vegan menu.

Pros: great vegan options

Cons: expensive but worth it

Fantastic special occasion spot - Edit

My husband and I were in Singapore for our anniversary and wanted to find an upscale veg place. Joie delivered. Set atop a beautiful rooftop garden with city views, we were treated to a 6-course lunch experience. Highly creative, tasty, and enjoyable. I particularly loved the ravioli. Highly recommend.

excellent ambience, great presentation and awesome food - Edit

If you want to have a relaxed 6 course meal this is the place .. you can tell them your restrictions before hand and the Chef can prepare food accordingly. Love this restaurant .. excellent place .. I have been here several times and love the food, staff is v polite. Liked Polenta item, drink is v refreshing. For dessert you must check re use of eggs. High end place for a meal.

The one and only in singapore - Edit

This is the only 5 star setting veg restaurant in singapore correct me if i am wrong. Their lunch is not too expensive considered the quality and portion of food served. The ambience is splendid esp the private rooms that overlook the roof top gardens. I enjoyed every visits and will look forward to come back whenever I had occasions to celebrate. Great for couples.

Pros: Nice ambience , Nice food, 5 stars setting

Cons: Pricey esp dinner set

Beautiful Presentation - Edit

We very much enjoyed this meal. A fixed seven-course meal for dinner. Although vegetarian this restaurant layed on an excellent vegan version for us. My favourite was the mushroom and truffle soup and my husband loved the sushimi-style entree best. The view was lovely, though a little hard to see at night - dimmer restaurant lighting and a little outdoor lighting would have added to the ambience; that being said we were very happy with everything and extremely touched by the plate that was brought out that said "Welcome to Singapore". Lovely and very helpful staff.

excellent, well-presented veggie food - Edit

one word: wow!

i've had the luxury of having lunch here twice in 2015 - both occasions have been memorable. i won't spoil the experience for you by describing each course, suffice to say that everything was delicious and exquisitely presented, and staff were extremely friendly.

if you're vegan or have other dietary requirements, tell them and they will present you with another menu.

i've emailed them twice and they've been very responsive to feedback and even made changes based on my comments.

tip: visit during lunch - it's a cold dish short of the dinner menu, but you save about sgd30.

Pros: exquisite presentation, delicious, friendly, attentive staff

Cons: stark price difference for lunch/dinner
