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.

We came here for Sunday brunch and didn't know all they served was the brunch menu. It would have been nice to have the ala carte options made available as well. Prices were reasonable food was good (except they undercooked the fish and gave me a new one). The baby spinach salad and foie gras burger was really tasty, as... More

Food is still good but the service staff have changed and are now well short of the standard they should be.

Food was generally tasty and good. Don't order the pork bun tho. The bun was dried out and hard and the filling is just a few slivers of fatty meat with kim chi. However would recommend the truffled macaroni and cheese.

My client found a piece of plastic wrapping inside the burger halfway eating it. We didn't want a replacement because my client was quite put off by it, but was nice about it. We were only offered 2 cups of coffee on the house. The food was not great either. The brunch at Club Street was much better.
