Poor steak and unpleasant staff

Admittedly we were 10mins late for our reservation – when we arrived the restaurant was only ¼ full, but they seated us at couples table in the corner that was poorly lit, and not a comfortable seating arrangement. We requested to be resitted, got a frown but never the less, a better table. The... read more

Went on a Friday afternoon and selected the set menu. Ranges from 2-4 course with 3 choices for 1st appetiser, 2nd appetiser, main course and dessert. Food was served in order of appetiser, main course and dessert. Waiter was attentive to who ordered which dishes so when the food comes, the correct guest would be served. Palate was on the... More

Lovely room, high ceilings, flattering lighting, interesting art on the walls. Steaks were tasty, cooked as requested. Portions were generous, especially side orders.

There are so many better options in Singapore than this place. We had potato skins to start - very average, then 2 fillets - very average for $70 a pop, sautéed peas, ham, mushrooms - awful. In fact the only memorable dish of the evening was the truffle & Parmesan fries. Certainly won't be going back!

I love red meat and steak is hands down a favourite of mine. As such, my expectations are high. Unfortunately, my experience at Prime Society was an utter disappointment. After reading a few reviews I was happy to give this place a shot. Since then, I’ve heard similar disappointing experiences to my own – just really boring, not properly cooked,... More

Came here as a bit of a treat. The polenta starter was nice but was a huge portion and became sickly. The steaks my husband and I had were quite tasty but also fatty and very overseasoned with salt. The wine was nice but the cheapest bottle was an Argentinian Malbec at $90. Our bill came to around $300 for... More

My wife and I had gone to celebrate her birthday. We had high expectations that were not met. Being a Thursday, it was not busy. The service staff ultimately obliged us with a better table but the service standards did not improve. We both opted for Wagyu steaks. My Wife's Rib Eye was excellent but my Sirloin did not come...

I really expected more but was disappointed on many fronts. To be fair staff were good and tried their best but the food was ordinary. Very ordinary. And when you think about what you pay for it then you just feeling your being taken for a ride. I happily pay up for quality and an experience but this place has... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner based on its claim to be a premium steakhouse and to check out the recent changes to the Dempsey precinct. The decor of the refurbished military building is attractive but we were seated in a corner area which did not provide the best vantage point to appreciate it. There was also a portable fan... More
