This was the worst meal I had in a long time. After eating a DB Bistro Moderne I was sick with the stomach flu for 3 days. Not a nice vacation in Singapore. The salmon was not cooked. The waiter said that it was normal, no it is not. You need to cook salmon. They returned it to kitchen and... More

We ate here twice, the waiters don't write down your order which resulted in first visit forgotten side order, not a problem as food was very good and we weren't charged for it. The second time the food was equally as good and the side order remembered, maybe because it was not as busy as first time. Just a minor... More

The food is really good but definitely not up to a 3 or 2 star michelin chef. I understand it is a bistrot and not the chef eponym restaurant but the fact that Daniel Boulud is an ex 3 stars michelin chef is well advertised so you expect he will delivered ;) I had the famous DB burger with foie...

DB's celebrity chef, Daniel Boulud, lost his 3rd Michelin Star this year, as the Michelin Guide cited the inconsistency of his namesake restaurant. Similarly this Singapore outpost can give you great flavors or average food (which then makes it an expensive place to dine). Came for dinner. Had the crispy pork belly for appetizer. It was pretty good, but nothing... More

Came here to have pre-movie dinner. Was extremely packed. Ordered their signature db burger S$40+ add S$10 for a glass of red wine. The burger came with fries and 3 dips. Was very disappointed with the burger. It was rather dry and not very flavourful but the red wine was very drinkable. Service was swift. Dinner party of 4 felt... More

The food is pretty normal and not as tasty as I thought it will be. I had been to many fine dining restaurants before and this place is probably not up to standard. Tried once and I won't be going back.

Unknown to me but what a happy experience. Great choice for lunch - set menu, brunch or a la carte. Excellent food, good wine AND staff whose smiles actually reach their eyes. Who can ask for more when resting between visits.

The wine here is outrageously expensive, but look past the wine list to the dinner menu and you will find fantastically crafted burgers that were very delicious.

Had a desperate burger craving and ended up at DB as seemed to have a 'high end' burger on the menu and wanted something better than Mc Donalds. 2x Freuchie bruger was ordered. While waiting had some nice fresh pretzel bread and ended up being the highlight of the food experience.. Burger came and was served with fries, but no... More
