Have been there before, also at the previous location. Mags just manage to keep it simple, enough but not too much to choose from on the menu. Nothing comes cheap in Singapore, but the prices are very fair unlike a lot of other restaurants: the...service is stylish but relaxed. The place is cosy (not too big), the kitchen is a part of the restaurants, good for couples, good for friends, good for business dinner. Simply fantastic.More

Mag’s Wine Kitchen, Keong Saik Road: Unassuming, pared-down on the frills Mag’s Wine Kitchen delivers taste and pretty plating. In an era when restaurants come and go and rely on marketing gimmicks, Mag’s stand tall with good classical techniques. Lobster risotto was so rich in...favour, I wish the serving was a lot larger. The octopus (although I have sworn off sentient creatures) was tender and so well executed. All the sauces were magical - never overpowering but a balance of true burst of original fresh flavours. The most surprising was the basil panna cotta - such a nice wash of basil in your dessert. True genius. All in all, this squares off as a very classical elegant dine. #eatstylishtravelstylishMore

We held a birthday celebration dinner at Mags and had the most amazing evening, I cannot recommend Mag and her team more highly. It’s a great setting with all the food prepared in an open kitchen in front of you, there is no doubt about...the exceptional quality of food and cooking as a result! Our food was incredible, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious and the selections of wine the most perfect accompaniment. The absolute stand out of the evening was the service and attention from the team who made everything so easy for us meaning we could just enjoy the evening with our friends knowing that we would all be well looked after. Definitely a place to return whether that’s just as a couple or with a group of friends.More

Service was bad. Didn’t inform me that there was a group party of more than 20. For a small place, it was very loud and risk of spreading covid. The staff was not even considerate to transfer us until I asked. I use to pay...$50 corkage, then now charging me $65. This is despite paying $150 for my 1st white wine. Very terrible service. Not returning.More

After always walking past and being intrigued by the beautiful decor from the outside , I finally made a reservation and it was one a best decisions ever! Warm and friendly faces greet you as you walk in, the service is impeccable. I dare say...one of the Top 3 best service in Singapore. The food was absolutely delicious as well, and the wine list phenomenal. 5 Star dining without the pretentiousness because of how down to Earth Mag and her team are. There are very few (if any) restaurants that I would go to twice in such a short amount of time, but this one was truly an exception! Special shoutout to Rome who really made both times such a great and fun experience! Can't wait to go back again :)More

It’s my friend’s birthday so we decided to try out this restaurant from a friend’s recommendation. The food and wine were great, but the service was poor for a nice restaurant with the same price range. We (two of us) ordered two bottles of wine...for the night but the staff was absolutely inattentive - throughout the night we often had empty glasses and were waiting for wine to be served. Also, it’s my friend’s birthday and I asked explicitly for a candle to be put on the dessert, but that never happened. What is worse is we ordered our dessert but we had been waiting for like 30 minutes because apparently the staff forgot about it. And I saw the staff suddenly realizing and taking the dessert right from the fridge. I spoke to the manager after the bill and he apologized saying they are short staffed But with a restaurant in this price range, this is really no excuse. there are many nice restaurants in sg and I don’t think I will make a second visit here because they totally ruined the birthday of my very good friend. I feel very bad about the kitchen staff - they did a great job and the food tasted awesome But the service staff was awful and ruined the whole dining experienceMore

Hi Yee Tok, I am so sorry you had a bad experience. We take all our reviews very seriously, what you experienced at the restaurant is unacceptable. It's not the sort of service that we normally provide and being shorthanded is definitely not an excuse....More

We had a wonderful lunch at Mag’s! We were greeted warmly by the staffs and it was a great experience to dine in an open concept which you can see how the chefs prepare the food. We had a omakase style and Chef Ryan prepared...our food after checking with us what we do not consume. I can see the great efforts that he have put in for all of our dishes. Firstly, we had the alaskan king crab as appetiser - very appetising and appealing! We had 3 courses - octopus with spicy tomato, Atlantic Seabass with Japanese okra and iberico ribeye. Everything was mouth watering and amazingly delicious!! My favourite was the Atlantic Seabass which you can taste the crispiness of the fish scale and freshness of the tender meat! We truly enjoyed our lunch and special thanks to Chef Ryan for the awesome meal. The service crews were attentive and caring throughout our entire meal. Thank you for having us!More

Mag has stood the test of time and has been dishing out culinary masterpieces for 26 years (since 1996). Mind blowing dishes are the lobster risotto and the crab starter grilled with little gem lettuce, topped with trout roe and truffle vinaigrette. It’s a winning...combination. Also superb is their specials. On this occasion we had their lamb loin and new on the menu the hauntingly memorable pork ribeye with sweet potato, mustard and morel cream. Loved sitting on the counter seating with open view of the master chef at work. Best seat in the house in my opinion. Very good wine selection for food pairing too.More
