My first time at the restaurant with a friend on Good Friday. They had a special brunch menu. The waiter recommended we shared one set and order extra dishes. It was a great a idea. The brunch was a 6 course meal and the extras we had mac & cheese and the crispy lamb. The food were simply delicious and... More

The starter portion sizes seemed on the small side but turned our just right as the mains were hearty and filling. Server was polite and attentive too. Sadly thought some of the cocktails I'd explicitly meant to try were no longer available and the website hadn't accurately reflected that. All in all though, it was a lovely experience. I'd highly...

Had a great business dinner at the Disgruntled Chef on Valentine's Day, with a number of out of town colleagues. Unfortunately many restaurants in Singapore only offer a special menu for this dinner. The service was great , food was spectacular. Our business meeting was a tad odd in the sea of couples dinning in the restaurant ..... I would... More

Overall we were very underwhelmed by our meal. To start....15-20 mins for our glass of champagne and tiny G&T to arrive after three follow ups. Minimum staff as CNY so service was poor, staff nice and not their fault - why open if they can't produce enough staff. Food was fine at the very best overall - scallops hugely under... More

Do check this place out if you are looking somewhere which offers good food and service! Atmosphere is great too with comfortable lighting and music. Highly recommend the truffle macaroni with cheese which comes in a delicious truffle cheese sauce and fresh crayfish meat.

Enjoyed a work dinner here last night. It is pretty tucked away in Dempsey. The ambience is not as good as the food - plain tables and decor. Food makes up for it. Limited menu but we tried a few of the small plates and particularly enjoyed the short Beef ribs, steak tartare and the fried Camembert. For main we... More

Excellent place to end the week. Ambience of the place was good. Food was good but the only downside is getting to Dempsey. Recommended to drive or take a cab there. Service was excellent and food servings were just nice and paced according to our consumption speed. Will be back again.
