Came by yesterday for lunch. Had to wait for sometime for a table. Requested for the alfresco area. Nice ambience. Food was as usual..superb. Service was ok if it is not for the server in black. Filipino I suppose? Was very rude. He was muttering something under his breath when he walked away from our table. Totally appeared not to... More

This place has the worst service ever. Before being seated, we waited for 20 minutes and had to grab a waiter. Then, we waited 20 minutes till ordering. Then we waited another 40 minutes until the COLD platter arrives. A cold platter that requires max 10 minutes to prepare, that is. A pity, since the food would otherwise be expensive... More

After work I join my friends in this "restaurant". It was really hot inside no fresh air. I was starving, so I order from their new menu chicken burger. For 20$ it was bread with awfully stringy chicken no vegetable not even a lettuce. I was waiting 30 min. Definitely, I will not go back.

Risotto was quite undercooked, not al dente. Wagyu burger came well done instead of medium rare as ordered. Grumpy bald Caucasian staff with poor service, other staff walking around looking busy but not really doing anything. This place has really taken a big drop in standards. Used to be good, now, don't bother.

At the ordering half the items on the menu was not available, including drinks. The first person was served after 15 min, the last after 45-50 min. Very slack service and the food that was available was pretty indifferent. Definitely not going back soon. Having said that the setting is good and it's a great place to bring small children....

I have been to Jones many times for breakfast. The food was not great but it was honest and service was good. I have watched the quality of the food and service become progressively worse. My visit today will be unfortunately my last. We had a table of four, two of the meals were delivered incorrect. One order of eggs... More

We trekked all the way to Dempsey for a Sunday brunch treat and boy, the food was surprisingly ... mediocre. This is a Grocer! They have a killer cheese room! Brunch here always used to be a pretty wow experience! It would not be an exaggeration to say their brunch LOOKED a lot like airline food and kinda tasted like... More

if you've about had your fill of Dim Sum and Curry, this is the place for you. Fantastic steak sandwich (Yep a broiled steak) with a roasted tomato and some kind of horseradish-deli mustard spread on two thick pieces of toasted sour dough bread. Great French fries. Service was just fine, in contrast to earlier reviews. The ambience is interesting...some... More

Never mind, the pino gris will do. Em, also not available. Given that it sells bottles of wine and has a sister outlet... More

As many reviewers noted, Jones has gone backwards. Ownership has changed and the service level is bad (even for Singapore). Examples include; Drinks and food all coming at different times. A waitress so paranoid of dogs she could not serve outside with multiple dogs. No attention to check on whether your meal met expectations. Given they have recently introduced a... More
