No, not a blind date for me, but we organised one for our mutual friends over dinner at Jamie's Italian. The food was pretty decent, didn't have to queue because we made a reservation in advance. But it was fairly easy to get a table via walk-in on that Sunday night.
Because I had read so many bad reviews online, I made sure to research on what were mentioned to be good. In the appetizers, we got the calamari, fried cauliflower and baked mushrooms. The first two were very good, the mushrooms were a little dried out, maybe they were sliced a little too thinly? I don't know, but I just wished they were meatier and juicier. While the tastes were good, be aware the portions are puny. Really a 1 for 1 person portion.

I got the whole snapper for my mains. I loved it and it didn't taste like Teochew steam fish as one blogger complained in his/her blog. The fish was super fresh and the capers, olives and tomatos made a lovely slightly tangy sauce that complemented the fish just perfectly. One fish was good portion for me, as the appetizers earlier barely made a dent.
