The Prime Society is part of a development created from old army barracks which gives the restaurant a certain style and character. Waiting for the other guests to arrive we were persuaded to have a Dark & Stormy (cocktail) which I have not had since Bermuda 25 years ago! It was first class as was the meal (steak) & the... More

The tightening of immigration visas has affected the Singapore F&B establishments in particular and it's a challenge to maintain decent standards nowadays. The individual waitresses at Prime Society are quite personable but overworked and stressed. So stressed that they are reluctant to make eye contact with their customers as they rush around the restaurant. Service should be unobtrusive but not... More

We went for dinner on 14.03.2014, which was our 2nd time. As before the location and interior are great. The food is also excellent yet the service really doesn't match the price. Service was slow and even needed to be asked twice for little things like pepper. Not being super busy a waiting time of approximately 30 minutes for the... More

A glorious Singapore evening sitting outside. Great location but the food did not live up to the cost. The ribs were a little dry and by the time you add the ++ it seemed expensive to us. I guess three glasses of wine between two is not much, but wow it adds to the cost

Had a great experience at Prime Society last night. even though we hadn't booked , we were welcomed and shown to a great table by the window. Service was excellent and food was exceptional. This restaurant is well worth a visit, the muscles were absolutely mouth-watering and the steak cut like butter. Would recommend the Prime society to everyone.

When we first stepped into the restaurant, we were warmly welcomed by the staffs. Waitresses were friendly! However, I was disappointed with the waiting time and the quality of the food. It took them about 45 minutes before our food was served. What was even more disappointing was that our food were badly burnt! The baby ribs were badly burned... More

I had eaten here several years ago and thought it was over priced (or under delivering) - take your pick. After the review before me I decided to return and check out the new chef.

Although The Prime Society has been around Dempsey for years, standards might have dropped a little the past couple years. Corners were cut, service was unattentive. Things had to change.

It was a Saturday night and honestly the restaurant did not look full for the time that we were there from 7:30pm to about 11:00pm - we were there only for that long due to the poor slow service!
