Open Farm Community is a superb multi-functional dining initiative that is entirely unique in Singapore. With acres of green space and some of the region’s best artisanal producers, as well as internationally renowned chef Ryan Clift on board, Open Farm Community delivers some of the city’s very best contemporary creations, with a strong connection to and acute focus on quality produce taken from nature. Dempsey has plenty of gourmet restaurants and cutting-edge eateries, but none of them match what Open Farm Community has going on off Minden Road.
Tables booked online for weekday lunch and dinner and weekend dinner are available for 2 hours only.Tables booked for weekend brunch (11am to 4pm) are available for 90 minutes.To enquire about a lengthier booking, please contact the restaurant directly.
Dempsey’s Open Farm Community is truly unique. Of course on one hand it’s among the city’s finest contemporary restaurants, with incredible brunch, cafe, kids, dinner, dessert and bar menus showcasing broad international influence, meticulous attention to detail and the high-wire skill of super chef Ryan Clift, who has worked with the likes of Marco Pierre-White, Peter Gordon and Raymond Capaldi and picked up more awards in Australia and Singapore than you could count. On the other hand, however, Open Farm Community is just that, a rare connection in this super-city between people and nature through food, with 35,000 square feet of green space off Minden Road, a fantastic curated farmers market and a dedicated emphasis on quality seasonal produce that goes beyond pleasing the palate to reminding us, even in Singapore, of our vital, indelible link to nature.
Codifying it into words on a screen can never do justice to the incredible international contemporary food offered at Open Farm Community, and it’s something that has to be experienced rather than described. Still, even then things like watercress soup with soft poached hen’s egg, crispy kale and olive oil caviar, or crispy Jurong frog legs, beetroot fregola pasta and sour sheep cheese still sound pretty darn good as words on a screen. This magnificent venue on Minden Road at the base of Dempsey Hill is spacious and relaxing, but it is incredibly popular so bookings are always essential, and always well worth it.
Fantastic food and great ambience with attentive stuff. Set lunch is perfectly reasonable but quality and quality must be fascinating for customers. I'll revisit here with my child.
Awesome food, great service! Would definitely come back here again.
Very nice experience and delicious food! All the dishes tasted fresh and healthy. Everything was meant for sharing so expect a very small portion. Pricewise, quite expensive but worth it!
Eye opener! First time seeing such a complete farm in the city yet doesn't feel like in city. Very nice setup, ambience jus perfect. Service was very good and food unique and tasty.
Maybe I am biased since I have fond memories of Open Farm Community as a restaurant but since I last went for dinner there the format has changed. Previously there was a full menu of entrees, mains and desserts, now there are just small plates and 3 desserts. Small plates are truly small. Previously there was quite a good cocktail list, now just a few. Similarly with wine by the glass. Some of the small plate dishes are smaller versions of what used to be on the menu and the some of those are well prepared but I am afraid you have lost me as a customer, at least for the "dinner" menu.
We were a group of 4 and had a pleasant night out at the restaurant last evening. For mains, we ordered the lamb shank with couscous, oxtail (albeit a little heavy handed with the salt) with pasta, barramundi and Jurong frog legs (starter as main) and all were good. We ordered 2 desserts to share and the spiced pumpkin cake and lemon tart did not disappoint except for the basil ice cream which was rather uninteresting. Service were attentive but not intrusive. There was a large group of 10 at another table, so noise level was naturally elevated. But altogether it was a pleasant dining experience with good food and company in a relaxed rustic setting.
The food was ok, there was No set menu so we asked the waitress about the size of the Main course. She said it was small portions. We all four decided to take a main course and ordered some extra vegetables. This to avoid paying for two courses each. The size of the main courses was fine so we felt she had tried to make us buy more. All in all the food taste very good, but the wine is really far too expensive. Would you allow people to bring their own wine? Then we would come more often.
Food: The warm salad is excellent, their new set lunch is good as well. Dessert- the lemon tart & basil ice cream must try! Ambience: It was rather noisy because of hard floor, and glass panels - could hardly hear each other unless you raise your voice a little more than normal. Service: Staff were smiley, attentive & helpful.
Was out second time in OFC. Food is excellent, they specialize on giving new tasty to traditional meals. We had pasta with crab and thai sauce, hot btoccoli salad, charred eatermelon with tarragon ice-cream, lemon tart with basil ice-cream. Everything was very tasty. Will come back soon But, the service was bad. They must improve the service.
Food is delicious and ambience is beautiful and comfortable as before. However, I prefer a concept and various choices in the past than current ones. Choise of meals are limited and all are overpriced, I suppose. I ordered a grilled chicken with a small portion of salad. I wanted it comes with bread or rice, or I wished there were a bread on the menu.
