My daughter and I had lunch at Whitegrass and it was an exquisite experience. They pay great attention to detail, from the decor, ambience, service and food quality. We chose lunch-time because we wanted to see the restaurant during the day. The main dining room...was tastefully decorated with a gorgeous center flower arrangement and surrounded by soft natural sunlight. All the dishes were beautifully presented, with unique flavors and textures. One of the best dishes was the wagyu beef - melt-in your-mouth. It was special that the chef came out to present us with delicious financiers to celebrate our mother-daughter get together after 5 months apart. We will definitely return to Whitegrass - one of the best restaurant experiences in SingaporeMore

The wagyu is excellent. The bread is really good. very crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside. The sesame bread is one of a kind 😎😎😎. I take the 8 course meal and the small octopus cut is really good. 😀 It should...be considered as main course in the future.More

Visiting Singapore for a week and made the best decision to visit Whitegrass on my last day. The whole experience was amazing. I was dining on my own and did a walk in. The staff were very welcoming and engaging. They chatted with me at...appropriate moments. When they knew I made the trip to try the restaurant, they invited the chef to have a chat with me. And the chef made an extra piece of cake and "bon voyage" written on the plate. Of course the food was amazing! One of the best meals ever. The chef is from Japan. He used Japanese ingredients in a few of the dishes. The mushroom soup was perfect. Beef cheek was super tasty. Dessert was another highlight. Ricotta sorbet on top of crumbles and with citrus around. The sorbet was so light and full of flavor. Definitely the highlight of my trip!More

We dined at Whitegrass on 9/12/2022 for our wedding anniversary. One word to sum it all up: impeccable! From start to end, we had a wonderful experience. The food was superb and we were really pleasantly surprised by not just the quality, but the attention...given to every dish. Unlike some Michelin starred restaurants, the chef & team at Whitegrass really took careful consideration of our dietary requirements and we were very impressed. Every single dish was superb- truly hard to come by! We even ordered second servings of the longtooth grouper and madeleines because they were just so good. My husband is usually not into fine dining but he was genuinely impressed last night. We are already planning our next meal back at Whitegrass. :) Thank you, Chef Takuya, Vincent and team, for the amazing food and taking the time to personally come to our table & chat with us. Special thanks to Lai and Happy for being our wonderful servers for the night! Truly warm and friendly, you both made the experience at Whitegrass lovely. See all of you again real soon! :)More

First visit, ordered the cheaper set lunch menu. Normally I would pick fish as my main course but because of one not so favourable review here I decided to choose the braised wagyu which was just okay. The mushroom soup was good. I liked the...two servings of bread, they were good. Excellent service staff trying to explain the details of the dishes to me, but a suaku like me really catch-no-ball, hahaha.... My first time spending more than SGD100 for a lunch, worth it? Nice ambience, a great place for lunch.More

My hubby and I celebrates our anniversary there. I had no expectations but when i saw the menu I was taken aback by the price. But when the food started rolling in, wow, it was wonderful. Excellent quality and super fresh flavours. My hubby topped...up for the wagyu and he said it was the best he has ever eaten. The service was super good and attentive too with Alex and Jamie explaining each dishes as they came out. We weren't expecting anything from them but they came out with a small anniversary dessert! So thoughtful. We will definitely go back again and try out their new rotating dishes!More

HK foodie woman enjoyed a great night in Whitegrass. Whitegrass symbol on knife too, like this detail. Love the sesame bread most. Sobert at the end with chesnut, wagyu are impressive. Environment is cozy. Fine dining absolutely. Service is top. Staff (Lai & Jamie) is...caring since stepping into the restaurant. Prepared me a pot of super hot water which is needed by me. Recommand to all foreigners, especially those from HK (where you cannot find similarly priced food i.e. Half of Tuber's price though here less truffle) Dim dining environment so photos are not with good light quality.More

It was a phenomenal experience that I ll cherish for life. We came from Australia and decided to choose White Grass to celebrate my birthday! I told my partner that this is the best food I have ever had in my life. It wasn’t just...food, it was masterpieces, and art! The chefs are amazing. Honestly, every spoon wowed me, I have never experienced that before.The staff are extremely hospitable, polite and considerate even from the smallest details. For my birthday, they gave us extra 2 desserts ! And also packed some of the cakes for me to bring home as gifts in cute boxes . The chef came out with the extra dessert and a cute candle to say happy birthday to me. So cute ! Their toilet is also showing the extra sophistication with things like mouthwash, hand cream, cotton pad ( for makeup removing ) etc. I have had an unforgettable experience with my boyfriend.More

Dining at Whitegrass is a gastronomical experience! Each course is a work of art, that is so tastefully presented. The flavours burst in your mouth, and each morsel is a delight! My guests and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were served by Lai, Grace and...John. All of them worked seamlessly to make our time at Whitegrass a most pampering experience. They were attentive and prompt, always around to assist us. This is my second time at Whitegrass, and Lai remembered me and the guests whom I brought last month. Most highly recommended!More
