Reviews for The Disgruntled Chef

Classics remain, with new, light offerings

The Disgruntled Chef has undergone a revamp (menu and space) for its fourth anniversary. While signatures (like the grilled French quail with crispy bacon and poached egg, $33) remain, the rest of the menu has adopted a lighter, more natural-flavoured approach. The seared scallop carpaccio ($18) for example, has flavours of soy brown butter, marinated ikura, konbu, lime and puffed sorghum wheat, the last to give it texture and smokiness. The brunch menu has also been switched up: it now features tartines only. Pictured is the mostly-adults-only Marie Antoinette ($20) - a not too sweet tartine made of bostock (almond frangipane on day-old brioche), almond cream, prunes and Armagnac ice cream. They also have a new coffee machine (no more Nespresso).

Notwithstanding the warm consideration shown to us at dinner (the manager had very thoughtfully enquired if we wanted our eggs thoroughly scrambled instead of runny because he'd observed that my girlfriend was pregnant), service was choppy and inefficient. There were inordinately long lapses between our courses, a dessert order was taken wrongly, we had to ask for the menu repeatedly, and our water glasses were left parched.

Despite the less-than-stellar service, and the chef'

The food is NOT the problem

The food was quite good.  For Dempsey Hill, i thought it was reasonably priced as well.  The problem is really the service & customer experience.

We had the steak tartare appetizer which was yummy.  Then a few moments later they brought us our side dish of the broccolini.  We looked at it and waited for the mains to come. And waited.  And waited.  We started to nibble because we were hungry and eventually we finished it...but still no sign of our main dishes.

We called the waiter to find out where the rest of our food was why we got the side dish so early.  He gave us some nonsense about
