I used to go to Prime Society a lot a few years ago, probably once a month - the service was excellent and the food was sublime. In my humble opinion, they served the best steaks in Singapore. However, a couple of years ago we had a terrible experience. Service was inattentive, our starters never arrived, despite repeatedly pointing this... More

I used to go to Prime Society quite a lot a few years when I was going to Singapore. After a while the service and quality deteriorated but I decided to make another try. I regret it! Service was awful, the staff was mixing up our dishes, refusing to accommodate our requests for changes and all took very long time.... More

Ran away from a nearby and entirely dreadful place to the Prime Society and this could not have been a more different experience... very friendly staff (all of them, which was a pleasant change from so many other restaurants), good food (if a bit pricey for some cuts) and terrific sommelier. Wine list could do with some improvements (Malbec, Rhone)... More

I've this group of gfs whom we meet every other month to go for high-tea or nice relaxing weekend brunch. Our last outing at Alkaff Mansion Prosecco brunch was fantastic!

The Prime Society is part of a development created from old army barracks which gives the restaurant a certain style and character.
