Amazing staff, incredible food and a fantastic view indeed!!! Much thanks for such a delightful wedding anniversary. Looking forward to our next visit... The Cereal Salmon on the menu is a definite must-try... And of-course the smokin' signature dessert...a real treat for anyone and everyone...

Sublime brunch Incredible champagne brunch or if you're a cheapskate you can do the prosecco one! Great choice of cocktails and the food is wonderful too. Service is quick and smiley too. Plus C'est La Vie has stunning views over Singapore. And the beautiful people...are always here! Greta atmosphere and convivial too! What more could you want from a brunch? Highly recommended.More

Food is decent and tasty, but it's a high-priced meal, so that's expected. waited 45mins for the food, service was average at best. basically, you are here for the view, that's the best thing about the place.

As I write this review, I am sitting in this restaurant still waiting some a wait person to ask if I want to order food despite literally everyone around us eating their meals. The view is amazing, but Inwould recommend the Skybar, avoid this restaurant,...it is average and we have eaten at so many other great restaurants in Singapore. I am also a hotel guest and really surprised by the lack if attention especially compared to other hotels that literally treat you like a star.More

Service was good although a bit hectic, the view and wine was awesome, the food was pretty average. Some confusion about the specials menu by the server as well.

Getting the attention of the staff is extremely difficult. To start off, when we wanted to order food, I waved to get the attention of 1 staff who obviously saw me but looked and walked away - she was not very near to us but...the basic courtesy should have been to ask another of her colleague to assist us. We finally managed to get the attention of another female staff in black jacket near us who very rudely said that another staff will be the one taking our orders. The manager who was taking our order had no patience, and kept looking around when we were talking as well. Subsequently when the dishes came we had to repeatedly tell the staff to clear our finished plates so that there will be space for the other food. Staff did not bother to replace our individual plates when the sharing platter came. They also did not bother to give us sharing plates and utensils when our dessert came - only did so after us asking for it. For the price and location, I was not expecting us to be eating the dessert, consisting of ice cream and cake, with our bare hands. Food wise quality is average. I understand the open air concept but throughout the meal there were pieces of paper and rubbish flying to our table, some from the staff counter but no one bothered to clear them. Overall extremely unpleasant experience and service is abysmal given the price. We will never come here again and will not recommend our friends to the restaurant as well.More

I booked a table at Ce La Vi (Singapore) on 17 December 2021 to celebrate one of my cousin’s birthday and a cousin’s return from the U.S. after 3 years. It was meant to be a treat for everyone after such a long ‘semi-lock down’....When we arrived, the hostess was nice and friendly. She gave us an outdoor seat so we can enjoy the view. Weather was windy but manageable. All good until we settled down at our table. We received minimal to no service through out the dinner. The service staffs were all standing around chitchatting but none came forward to take our order or serve us some water while we went through the menu. We waved numerous times and eventually one staff came over with a ‘can’t be bothered’ attitude (and face) after a good 10-15min. Food and drinks came eventually. But midway through our meal, we felt light drizzle and again we waved at the staff. They saw us but none bothered to come over. They simply walk past us a few times. Eventually we got hold of a service staff and told her that we needed to move indoor asap. We had a jointed table and one of our table was not under the shade. So, some of our food were getting rained on and two of us were basically under the rain. Instead of helping us, the service staff told us off. Her exact words were :”I’m very busy trying to help everyone. Pls wait.” And walked off. We were left helpless at our table with rain falling on us. She just walked away and then chitchat with her colleagues again. The rain got heavier. Again we waved and she ignored us. We asked her if we could at least move our table so it’s under the shade while she sort out the sitting arrangement. She couldn’t be bothered with us again and just walked off. In the end, we had to move our table ourselves. There were wine glasses, food and our bags. It was messy. The worst thing is - there were 2-3 service staff just standing around watching carry the table and holding the wine glass so it doesn’t break. None of them step in to help. After 5 mins, it started pouring. We waved to the service staff and asked for help again. They saw us but chose to ignore and continued to chitchat inside the bar. The rain and wind was so strong and all our food and wine were soaked in rainwater. We dashed to the shelters area and stood there. Our bags, wine and food were under the rain. All the staff just stood inside the sheltered bar.. looking at us. None came out to help. By this time, we gave up. Grab our bags, clothes all wet and stood at the corner of the sheltered area to wait for rain to stop. Our wine and food were half eaten and soaked in the rain. No service staff came and check on us. My aunt was shivering in the rain and we had to wrap her in our shawl. Eventually after a good 20mins or so.. it was still raining very heavily. The service staff came and ask us to pay for our full bill. She even had the cheek to tell us that we have to pay for the half eaten food and wine. She said - she went to check our table and saw the food already half eaten and we should be paying for it despite the rain. We had half a bottle of wine with rain water in it, beef soak in water, and a few other dishes as well. We complained about the service and the staff did not even apologize. She kept on telling us off that she is doing her best. Sigh. We understand the weather is unpredictable but this level of service simply not acceptable. Our evening was ruined. Our clothes and handbags were also wet because they refused to move us indoor or to help us find an alternative seat when we called for them. There were tables under the shade when we called them (when it started drizzling). They did nothing and we ended up soak in rain. This was our worse ever experience at a 5 stars bar/restaurant. I would expect a much better service. I have hosted many guests at Ce La Vi and enjoyed the evenings there before. I wanted to give my cousins a treat but it ended up with a very bad taste. We had to sent all our bags to bag spa for cleaning. And worse, one of my cousin fell sick after the dinner. Please do check your cctv for full details of our evening and I hope to get a response from ce la vi management. We paid a premium for the service and deserve none of these treatments at a 5 stars restaurant.More

A fantastic trip to Singapore’s iconic landmark feature made better by brilliant music, a wonderful relaxed atmosphere and most notably, fantastic service from our friendly, attentive waiter Daryl. For someone who had not been working there very long he was attentive to our every need...and helpful in every way possible- completely making our visit worthwhile. We loved it and are booked in again for this week. Thank you Ce La Vie team and thank you Daryl!More

Supposed to be a special night, but terrible and disappointing in all facets. Booking not respected despite booking a month in advance. Poor service. Unable to order food despite a 7pm booking. We left after a bottle of over priced champagne and had to go...elsewhere to get actual food. Great view but save yourself to disappointment.More

If you’re looking for an enjoyable dining experience, this isn’t for you. When I requested for some water, the lady serving me simply nodded her head, her expression changed from smile to annoyed, and walked away. And she did not serve me water. By the...way, when we sat down, even after 15 minutes NOBODY came to serve us water. We had to ask for it. After we were served the food, nobody came to check on our table. Our glasses were just left to empty out, and no one bothered to glance at our direction to see if we needed anything. It took 15 mins just to get someone to fill our glasses. It seems like the staff didn’t want to work. Not sure if service has always been like this.More

When I went there I didn’t see any inside tables, and even the payment area is outside so I’m sure it’s all outdoors, but the bar is inside
