I dined at The Prime Society with my date 3 years ago and had a good dining experience. I was a little skeptical of dining here again after reading mixed reviews of the restaurant in recent years. Overall service was okay, except that the servers should pay more attention to tables that are not at strategic parts of the restaurant... More

My partner and had lunch at Prime Society on 3/11/2014. The place is nicely set out and the decor is tasteful so I was expecting service and quality to match but I was disappointed. The service staff are under trained and I would say more suited to a food court. To order a gin and tonic was a task that... More

Had this tonight, it's not fantastic as I thought a steak place would be, neither is it bad. I would say slight better than average. On a weekday night it's rather nice and quiet to come and enjoy your dinner. I don't drink much, so we ordered still water which costs us $12. I should have asked for tap water.... More

Dempsey Hill is still one of the secret hidden places in Singapore. Known by the locals but you will not find many tourists at this place. We selected the Prime Society for a nice tuna tartare, liver parfait and Chateau Briand (medium rare). A nice Pinot Grigio made the dinner perfect. The service is still an item which can be... More

To the Owner: you are very lucky to have the privelege of the Dempsey surroundings to make up for the surprisingly shocking dishes we had on Tuesday 7 October. Will certainly be telling our friends to avoid the following: To our Chinese friends: avoid the Scallops and Pork Belly starter. Only a few scallops and 95% fatty pork undercooked and... More

First restaurant in Singapore that serves real meal in terms of quantity!!!! Great choice in the menu and very well balanced, refined taste. List of wines - rich and various. Nice interior, spacious. Beautiful deco. Not cheap but worth to visit.

Regular readers know that Mole is, by nature, a tolerant soul and, by experience, a bit of a foodie. So when invited to partake at The Prime Society, we got quite excited. We arrived just before 21.00. And so downhill. Crab and pork don't mix. Soggy crab and pork Scotch eggs, are an abomination and greatly to be despised, especially... More

I have been living in Singapore for ten years now and love the dining scene as well as the breadth and quality of the food. Until Saturday.
