Outstanding dinner from the starters till the dessert, and also the wine! We had the Crudo-ceviche and kale & broccoli salad. Followed by delicious orecchiette (pasta) with scampi and kale and also the delicately cooked pork chop with smoked chili glaze and asparagus. Finished with...the refreshing sorbets and a pie. Total cost for 2 persons including one bottle of wine S$314.More

We came to celebrate our anniversary here which the place is very romantic elegant and classy. Service are excellent and food are amazing. Excerpt the manager I can tell Russian or German that make us uncomfortable as he is mingling next table with us. He...gave that 5 star service to that table not to everyone. I can tell seems like a couple as too much affection to show. And when the bill comes the friend of the woman insist to pay and he said he take care of it and she insisted to pay and said he didn’t key inn and nothing to worry.More

I went here for a curated Portuguese Wine Pairing Dinner by Wine Adore. The food was incredible, each dish carefully paired with the wine. The team were very knowledgeable and explained each dish and the wine that accompanied it. It was my first time in...this restaurant and will definitely be coming back!More

Came because it was highly recommended by a colleague, but very surprised. Service is good, but I think that’s where it ended for us. The burger was pretty awful. At an establishment like this and a $36 burger, you’d at least expect a brioche bun....But the bun was a stale sesame bun. The burger patty was tiny and the whole thing just lacked flavour. Accompanying fries were stale and soggy. Needless to say my kids didn’t eat the burger and I wasn’t too keen on finishing their portion either. Crackling chicken was crispy but it was just a fried piece of chicken. Served with a very weak habanero sauce and wilted spinach. The whole dish was tasteless and a big mistake to order. The shrimp salad was ok - shrimps were nice but salad dressing not too great. What we loved was the sushi on crispy rice. That was really good. Needless to say, we didn’t stick around for dessert.More

Was early for my lunch appointment so they seated me at the bar.. not after about 10mins I get the reserved table. My sis ordered the set lunch which was value for money & tasted awesome! She had the kale salad & rigatoni w/meatballs. I...ordered a Tomato mozzarella pizza & crispy sushi.. great food! Highlight was the apple cinnamon cake w/sherbet. Overall nice ambience and friendly staff. Definitely will back again!😊More

We had an event in the private dining space. We had such an exceptional experience at Dempsey Cookhouse. All of the staff went the extra mile to make our experience truly stress free and memorable! The food was amazing, the room was bright and was...not only pleasant for the dinner but also made pictures look so nice! We felt very taken care of and everything went seamlessly! I couldn’t recommend your space for an event more!More

Overall the food was great and service was good too until I realised that the Acqua Panna was chargeable at about $9 per bottle, it was not made known to me that the acqua panna was chargeable, the waitress only asked me if I had...wanted still or sparkling water... Decor was nice, chic and modern.More

They have a large private space. As long as you pay, nobody will care about who gives a lecture, or what it’s about.

I think pets are permissible in the al fresco area. Not inside the restaurant. I am sure Chloe, the manager will be pleased to assist. Enjoy.
