I don’t usually do reviews but I just have to share about the amazing experience I had at Somm One of the best aspects was the amazing service! It started off with being guided to our seats by a very friendly and cheerful hostess! After...we settled down, our waiter made sure we made the best of our experience by describing and recommending dishes that we may enjoy. We ended up ordering uni French toast , French Oyster, pigeon & Foie Gra Pithivier and Souffle we recommend everyone to try it out as well, the complexity of flavours were nothing like I’ve had before, absolutely stunning food. Our sommelier made the perfect recommendation for wine that just pairs so well with the food it just added to the already great experience we were having! I absolutely can’t wait to come back and would like to thank everyone at Somm for the wonderful meal!More

I’d brunch at SOMM. There’s a lot of food and everything tasted delicious. Highlights included: - Polmard beef tartare - The complementary waffle with black winter truffle, sour cream, onion salted maple syrup. It’s a new item on the menu. The different ingredients combined to...create an unique and highly delicious snack. I’d have easily had a few more. It doesn’t come cheap but I wouldn’t mind paying for it when I visit SOMM next time. - Bresse pigeon and foie gras pithivier which was cooked to perfection. The puff pastry outside was warm and a little crispy. As for the ingredients inside, the pigeon fillet was very tender and the foie gras was very smooth and literally melted in my mouth. The fact that it still maintained its beautiful shape after being cut in halves testified to the great skills of the chef. It’s well worth the supplement (HK$598 for 2). I highly recommend this artisanal French dish which is only available in a handful of French/European restaurants in Hong Kong (including Arbor, Le Bistro Winebeast and SOMM). The service was impeccable. Kudos to the professional staff, in particular King and Marcus, for taking very good care of us. Overall, the experience was so much better than last time.More

I’d early dinner in SOMM since there’s no dine-in service after 18:00. I arrived on time at 16:00. However, we’d to wait for about 15 minutes in a small area outside the restaurant together with other customers before our table was ready. The restaurant was...full in the beginning, Even all bar seats were taken. As the restaurant is small, it’s extremely noisy like a market. Fortunately, some customers left during the course of our meal so the noise became a little more tolerable. I hadn’t been to SOMM for quite some time. The food was still good although the former chef de cuisine Mario Paecke had left to work in Margo in The Galleria. I’d pâté en croûte, Japanese pork belly and chocolate soufflé with cacao sorbet. They’re all very delicious. And HK$688 for 3 courses with a glass of wine and unlimited Nordaq water was very reasonable. There’s room for improvement for the service. In addition to the waiting time (which reflected bad management), the server who came to pour us wine had no idea who’d ordered which wine. And more than once I’d to ask the staff to refill my water. Even though the food was good, I’d only give 3 stars considering the service and the dining environment.More
