The frenetic pace of life in Singapore often leaves us yearning for hangouts away from the city to refuel and catch up with loved ones in our free time. Thankfully, there are restaurants like Spruce at Fire Station, set amid lush greenery on the premises of a former fire station at Upper Bukit Timah Road that boasts a lip-smacking menu of modern American dishes to boot. With an impressive selection of wings, ribs, burgers and desserts, this charming Bukit Timah gem transforms into a popular brunch spot on weekends, so you’ll want to make a reservation before you get here.
Great food, great ambience, affordable food & alcohol, nice place to hang out with your friends for a good night out! Easy for parking as well!
For us, Spruce has been one of the most frequented brunch spots in town. However, this was the first time we planned for supper in this friendly neighbourhood diner. It being a Friday, the live band (JJ & Sherman) was playing some crowd favourites. While we focused on the food more, the kiddo was kinda mesmerised with the guitar and the music so much so that he complimented the duo with a ‘You sing so well’. By the way, the ‘Bite Me First’ no longer remains a first if you choose to order three because the portion size is generous. Taste is pretty much guaranteed so choose wisely if you intend to sample more variety. Bruce@Firestation has a very comfy and relaxed vibe. They have the al fresco option as well. However, dart boards and music is indoors only. So you’ll perhaps have to go twice or stay longer!
Overall is a nice place to have your dinner and chill. Very good ambience. Nice staffs. Service was fast. Will be back again to this place.
Good venue for catching up over food & drinks. Quiet enough for chatting too. Food was reasonably good & we received good service from the servers. :) Live band available on Tuesdays & Fridays.
The ambience and food was good. Yet there’s room for improvement for the staffs.. As we ordered steak that expected it to be Medium cooked, but it seemed like Medium Well cooked to us Hence we requested for what we’ve ordered, which was Medium cooked. Unfortunately, I think it was manager who tried to deny and wanted us to accept that plate of steak instead.. Long in short, we managed to get another plate of medium cooked steak but the manager denied the fact that the steak was over cooked and instead, he suggested us to order Medium Rare steak the next round when we order steak again.. which I think, it was kinda rude (may be improved)
Serving portion was good and ambience was nice due to the live band and correct lighting. We sat on the inside though the ambience on the outside felt pretty good too. We had 3 mains - pork loin, sea bass & baby back ribs. The pork loin was tender though it was sliced a little too thick. The sea bass was a little salty for me but those who prefer a heavier taste would enjoy it. I enjoyed the baby back ribs too as it was nicely cooked.
We were there with a table of 8 for a casual dinner among colleagues. The Staff really looked after us and was very attentive as well as very friendly. Food was good & served with no long waiting time. The inside is a beautifully renovated fire station while at the back there is a cosy quiet terrasse to enjoy fresh air. Thanks @SpruceFireStation for the great night!
Went there for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. The atmosphere was relaxed even with some construction within the premises. Staff was friendly and alert. Music was kept low enough for good conversation yet loud enough to be enjoyed. Fook was well presented, tasted great and very satisfying. Great place for the catch up I had with my friend.
It is great to have such a big restaurant in the West with superb service and live band. Was there on Tuesday evening with wife and 2 kids. We were promptly greeted at the entrance and show to our table. Entertained by the live performance while waiting for food, which did not take long to serve. The young ones enjoyed eating Mister Macaroni from the Kids' menu.
Nice place to chill on a friday evening enjoying their live band music. I like the fact that the tables are spaced out pretty well and you're able to enjoy time with your loved ones. Food wise not bad, my favourite were the hot wings. Their prawn pasta came with very generous serving of prawns. Will be back to try more of their food!
