Terrific

Really not sure where the low ratings for Lukes@Heeren are coming from... but here's our quick review:

Interior looks very similar in style to the original - but look a dash darker and more sophisticated, particularly at night. Given that they have floor to ceiling windows, I'm not sure why they did not elect to install seats right next to those windows - instead, they've wasted the view as a walkway / serving area. Someone needs to have a stern word with their interior decorator.

Food was certainly on par with the original - My only gripe was that their clam chowder felt like it had been in the pot too long and was somewhat thick and clams rather tasteless. Their signature peppercorn crusted tenderloin was amazing and last nights was the best we've ever had at either. I was told that their kale salad was amazing but we did not get chance to order it.

Service was the real star of the evening. When we couldn't agree on which mustard to have, the server quickly offered to bring us all three. She made good suggestions and was friendly and professional throughout. At the end of a very satisfying meal, we even got delicious fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies and milkshake (spiked with Guinness) on the house!

Definitely one of the top three restaurant experiences of the year in Singapore!!! A perfect weekend dinner date.

Went to the restaurant with full of expectations, in spite of the mixed reviews. Started w a bottle of wine and a dozen of oysters. Oysters was very fresh and sweet, but sadly that was the only good thing of the whole dinner. Waited for another 30 mins for our starters and "mains", even though restaurant was only 50% filled. Finally, caesar salad,
crab cakes and Maine Lobster arrived. My daugher's Caesar salad, with sauce on the side, was one with a few leaves of Romaine, a piece of hand-torn toast, some cheese crumbs and a tiny, little "jug" of  cream cheese, I think - the most spartan ceasar salad - I have ever seen in my life. Then came the crab cakes, which my daugther had ordered as her main, as it was under Chophouse Classics AFTER the starters' section. At $47, what she ended up with, were 2 little rounds of crab cakes w a little side comprising of strips of purple cabbage coleslaw topped w mayonnaise. The crab cakes tasted ok but w no wow effect at all. Most important of all, my daughter was hardly fed for dinner. As our daughter only eats seafood, we then asked for John Dory Fish or Signature Fish of the Day - OH!! Both were sold out yesterday - the waitress said unapologetically with a wide smile. But isn't Aug 9 - a Public Holiday AND a Saturday - a PRIME night for dinner? So too bad, my daugther has nothing to eat unless she orders another whole Maine Lobster. My husband and I did share a whole Maine Lobster. At $110, the 750g lobster was neatly divided into 2 portions for us with 3 very thin silvers of pickled cucumber. So pls note, there are NO sides at all - you have to order them and pay, if you want anything else. The lobster was competently steamed and comes with a butter sauce with no imagination at all. Nett, we left the restaurant after spending a good $400+ - totally unfulfilled and unsatisfied...Our conclusion - after many wonderful dinners around Singapore, there is certainly no chef in the kitchen, only cooks who assembled food and the simplest of sauces. So, pls don't waste your time or money. All said, we proceeded to another nice joint for supper after our dinner at Luke's...because dinner was pathetic.

Visited on 2 Aug 2014, made reservation a week earlier and informed it was for a birthday, asked for window seats. We got the ones nearest the windows, overlooking Orchard Road towards Mandarin Gallery.

Started with half-dozen Katama Bay oysters which were on half-price before 7pm. Not sure if that's a standard, but it got us off on a great start. 

Then took the whole lobster and bone-in tenderloin for two to share. Had high expectations for both, and both turned out amazing! 

Also had a complimentary brown rice salady thingy which was surprisingly good. It tasted healthy yet extremely palatable with nuts, onions, corn and I-don't-know-what-elses.

As we were getting ready to get the bill, a little surprise in the form of a mini-lemon-pie with a lighted candle came along. No boistereous happy birthday song thankfully, and the gesture was very much appreciated.

Service was prompt, attentive and friendly with :)s

The place isn't huge and perhaps due to the general profile of the diners, very quiet even when filled. Great for dates. Sneakily located within Robinsons' third floor, allowing for a surprise if your friends are none-the-wiser.

Perhaps the main question is - is it worth it? My bill came up to $300 for two, including the above and a couple glasses of wine. IMO: yes, because everything from food (most important of course!) to service and ambience exceeded expectations. Nobody should be eating here everyday for sure - even for the wealthy - but for those special occasions, make this at least a consideration on your list.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
