The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar
Lovely food, fantastic service, such a brilliant place to celebrate birthdays at, overall an amazing experience with all the food that we ordered!
The tagliatelle with eggplant, tomatoes & ricotta was fabulously light and so fresh! The truffle pizza was oozing with truffle and cheese, enjoyed it thoroughly. The veal Milanese & ocean trout were such amazing items too! For dessert, the warm apricot crumble was SO GOOD. Don’t ever leave without it.
The food is salty and not hot (slightly warm) when served. Customer service was bad. Staff at front desk has got some attitude problem when we arrived. She said she had tried to call me via my hp for confirmation but i had already received confirmation email the day before. I was not mentioned to expect any call from the restaurant from that email. I find it quite unprofessional for her to talk to us with bad attitude and not even making eye contact. The staff who took our order and served food was slightly more friendly. What i can read from your staff's behavior is that we are not "white" so we received less friendly service. All the tables were set up quite close to one another. It made it look like a fast food restaurant.
Attentive service. Feel welcome and friendly reception.
Good Food presentation. Lovely ambience. Will definitely visit again.
Thank you for another memorable night! Food and service was superb, especially the sommelier! She remembered both bottles that we ordered over month ago when we were last there for a Long lunch. Amazing! Can’t wait to come back again x
Reservation was made through Chope website. Apparently, was given outdoor dining upon arrival. Was disappointed though. It would be good if I am reminded when reservation was confirmed by staff through phone. Nothing was being mentioned.
Great value for brunch. Food is always cooked to a high standard. The French toast is especially yummy with a lovely crunchy exterior while remaining fluffy inside.
We were punctual and was of course seated quickly Would have preferred a table away from the bar and staff’s access to the kitchen. Ordered the calamari for starters, trout and pork chop for mains and a potato purée on the side, paired with white wine and to top it all of with really good profiteroles and apricot tart for desserts. Food was delicious. Service prompt and attentive. Overall a very pleasant first experience. Will definitely return. Thank you
I was at Dempsey Cookhouse on 23 July, for my partner's birthday dinner. We will like to compliment my server Monica. Her service was delightful, and we enjoy our dinner very much. Great thank you to her awesome hospitality. We will definitely return for future visits.
The vibe here is great and it is clear the team has put a lot of thought into creating intimate spaces in a very large space. We loved the sides: The baked cauliflower perfectly retained its crunch with the sweetness of the charring. The pea guacamole gets a ‘wow’ every time We take a new visitor there. Service is fairly attentive with the occasional miss on watching water glasses and being clear on whether all plates would be served together or in separate courses.
Excellent quality food. Definitely will be back again and again.
Very attentive staff. I requested no bar stool seating as I'm expecting and was very happy someone called me back to reassure me there is no bar stool seating. Service staff also very attentive throughout our meal.
Great ambience and super friendly staff. Be great if Cookhouse offers Seasonal Menus as well ! thks
Perfect ambiance. Staff are friendly and nice! especially Szehwee! got a surprise dessert for birthday!!
Kudos for excellent service crew, something you don't see in many of today's restaurants. The Filipino waiter who served me took great care to note my food allergies and was very accommodating and professional. After the food was served by another staff, he came by my table to ensure that my food didn't contain the allergens. Johann the assistant restaurant manager provided service par excellence. Highly recommended!
Lovely ambience for a relaxing brunch. The food was nice, but what you would expect for the price. Service was good, but took a little while at times but it was no issue as we were not in a rush. We sat outside as indoors is a little too much aircon for my preference, however the interior did look stunning.
The pasta and pizza were good ! Highly recommended to those who are on a date or would like to have a great dinner !
I brought my newly arrived colleague from Seoul and she was impressed.
The front desk staff were professional and showed us our table.
The tables are a good distance apart. I notice the tall palms from a year ago have been replaced. We ordered from the a la Carte menu. A Caesar salad was shared and individually mains ordered. She had the seafood main and I ordered the vegetarian tagliatelle. All delicious and was told by the roving maitre’d that a new menu was recently introduced. The price points are acceptable by Dempsey standards. The lemon tart was a fitting dessert end.
Always a great experience going to the Cookhouse. I was celebrating a friend's birthday and the restaurant helped with a small dessert and candle at the end. Very nice!
THE FOOD IS AWESOME, STAFF IS FRIENDLY AND SERVICE IS GOOD
We sat outside in garden surroundings. Comfortable chais and lovely big ceiling fans. Denzel looked after us wonderfully. The food was sensational. Really tasty. Superb well balanced wine list. We are booking to go again this week when we return to Singapore.
Great food and atmosphere, beautiful building and a great bar
You will always have a nice experience when dining at The Dempsey Cookhouse
Generally I would recommend Dempsey Cookhouse. However the staff need to do more to control unruly children in the restaurant. We were sat next to a table with two children, that we not being controlled and the staff did not say anything to their parents.
If they are seriously wanting to be one of those top restaurants in town, food quality , taste and presentation must be greatly improved. I dun think their staff is ready too without proper trainings.
Absolutely loved it. Good Quality of food. Great ambience & excellent service. Cannot ask for more.. Staff if prompt and attentive. Best of all. being able to book via open table is thumbs up!
Very attractive place, great food, would recommend and return. Service could be improved. We booked an outside table, but upon arrival told the OpenTable get these things wrong and one wasn't available. Inside is air-conditioned to a chill. It had to take some complaining to get this sorted. Staff we not very attentive. Had to keep asking to our wine to be topped up etc. No feeling they were thinking about us. We had to prompt and ask them each time anything was required. The service wasn't unpleasant or a reason not to go, just could be better.
Thanks for your wonder service! Waiter was absolutely efficient and friendly. (:
Excellent ambience and attentive staff.
Should service drinks before food though.
My husband and I went to this restaurant to celebrate a special occasion on a Saturday night. When we first arrived, the hostess told us that there was one table we could sit at outside but that we'd have to be done in an hour. She did not ask whether we had a reservation (which we did), and only after a confused exchange did she realize that we had one and thus could be seated inside.
We were greeted immediately by the waiter, who brought our water and the menus out quickly. However, it took 20 minutes for our other drinks to come out, and my husband's was wrong (he ordered a mojitto and got a martini instead). In addition, as I am obviously expecting a child (am in the 37th week of pregnancy), the waiter asked when the baby was due and then made a comment under his breath referencing how "large" I looked. Very rude and inappropriate!
Despite the waiter's forgetfulness and rude comments, we stayed (probably against our better judgment). I ordered grilled tenderloin with salsa verde - the meat was tender but the seasoning was overwhelmed by cumin (which I typically like but didn't complement the steak). My husband ordered the "simply cooked" tenderloin, which was 100 grams. His dish was fine but nothing to write home about. He also ordered a tomato, fresh basil, and chili pizza which came out cold. At the end of the meal, I ordered cheesecake and he ordered an aperitif -- my dessert came out quickly and was delicious, but his drink took an additional 15 minutes and reminding the waiter.
Overall, the lack of service, inappropriate comments, and lackluster food make me wonder why this restaurant is rated so highly on Opentable. We have no plans to return.
The ambience is good, especially for meeting and catching up with friends.
This was our second visit from Australia; love the setting although same menus as 2 years ago; maybe time to add a few new dishes.
I truly enjoy your food and service.. ambiance is perfect.
A curious question- why do I get called about preferences when the menu is standard in terms of offering and basic veg/ non veg, eggs, garlic etc preferences?
The white and black ambiance was great. Staff were prompt and attentive. Food was to our satisfaction as well.
Nice place and wonderful mood~!!
We've got the special service for our anniversary!!
The food was excellent right from start to finish. My friend felt the chicken was a bit on the dry side and attributed it to being breast meat. We did the chef's recommendation which comprised what felt like 10 courses.
Great food, with outstanding service from very helpful yet unobstrusive staff.
Food is amazing. Was there for a birthday celebration and staff was super coordinated, didn’t even need a reminder and service was impeccable. Would recommend for any occasion!
Great atmosphere. Very good food. Great night all round.
We had a few cocktails at the bar and then sat outside and loved the ambiance
Been here 3 times now and each time great
Food is nice but the staffs and waiters are so horrendous!!!! !even tho they know it’s my birthday.:there is no complementary cake or dessert..but nvm we order dessert and have to wait for 30 min for it???!.:after that one staff rushing us to go??? ..what a terrible service..I will never come again..
But the service unfortunately for the first time was careless and bad !
