My partner and I went to Ninyo for our third year anniversary. Upon entering the compound, one of the waitstaff was there to welcome us and showed us the way to the gazebo. The gazebo's table had rows of petals and a candle centerpiece, the napkin tastefully folded, the floor of the gazebo was also filled with flowers and candles surrounded the table. The set up was romantic without being too much. After the wine was poured, the food was served. For the first course, we were served Trio Of Oyster which was one of their bestsellers. Three oysters: Rockefeller, Wasabi Fried with Citrus Mayo and Baked Oysters with Foie Gras were on top of a mound of salt. The Oysters were fresh and the ingredients really went well with them. I enjoyed that there were different textures, the soft oysters and melted cheese with the crunch of Ebiko and Wasabi Batter and Bacon as well as the balance of flavor. Once we started eating, we couldn't stop. For the second course, my partner had Pumpkin Soup and I had the Shitake Confit Salad. The plating was beautiful, colorful and pleasing to the eye. I really enjoyed this course because the Honey Ponzu Dressing went really well with the different components of the dish and using the Tofu to replace bread was genius. We were then served Calamansi Sorbet to cleanse our palates. The Sorbet was tart without being too acidic and refreshing. For the next course, we were served Surf and Turf, Honey Glazed Salmon with Citrus Miso Sauce and Potato and US Braised Short Ribs Mushroom Miso au jus with Risotto. The Salmon was fantastic, it was cooked perfectly and the citrus miso sauce really went well with it. The US Short Ribs were tender and the jus also went well with the meat. The dish overall was cooked well and I enjoyed it, it just made me crave for something salty or sour as both proteins were on the sweet side. For the dessert we were served Mango Pavlova which was light, sweet and fresh. Also, we had the Chocolate Cake with Milkshake shot which was incredibly indulgent and rich without being too sweet. Both desserts were a nice end to the meal. They were also thoughtful to plate the desserts with a Happy Anniversary piping. The service was excellent, they were very accommodating, often offering to take pictures and they anticipated our needs without us asking for the next course or more water. After dinner, we were given a lock to put on their wall of locks which was a nice ending to the evening. Overall, we enjoyed the experience and would definitely come back to sample more of their cuisine.
