Swensen's Great Dining Experience

The restaurant has a warm ambience with slightly dimmed lights. The chairs are comfy and the staff is very friendly when serving you. I tried the  Baked Spaghetti Bolognese with meatballs that cost $15.90 and was served piping hot in under 10 mins. The kind waitress reminded me that it was hot before i tucked into the warm, gooey red-sauce spaghetti that was covered with a layer of baked, slightly browned cheese. The dish was topped with 3 delicious meatballs that were juicy and tender. For dessert, I ordered a bannana split that was really yummy with the 3 ice cream flavours I had chosen: Butterscotch, Mango and Strawberry that was sandwiched between 2 banana halfs. The desser was topped with strawberries, nuts, whipped cream, maraschino cherries, chocolate sauce, hot fudge and strawberry sauce. Overall, it was a great dining experience and suitable for anyone looking for great food and who has a sweet tooth! The prices are resonable, the staff is courteous and the setting is comfortable. Perfect for a family ranging from young to old.

Bad Service

I have always liked Swensons, particularly the sengkang branch. Food used to be served promptly and I enjoyed their services. But, for past three weeks, I have tried to go for lunches and dinner on weekdays/weekends, and its almost always crowded and the queue is quite long - understandable as the food is not bad. The disappointing part was that, the waiter/waitresses never inform even when the tables get cleared. And when I went to ask for a table for two, and pointed at a free table with two chairs, they still asked me to wait and never got back. Quite sad, as this has happened 4 times now.

To satiate western food craving

This place reminds me of diners in the US. The selection of burgers, steaks and pastas are quite OK. My favorites are salmon and cod steaks. The icecream is also not so bad. Love the pistachio flavor.

Service is quite OK too.

mmm steak...

Ribeye Steak!

Suddenly feels like having steak. So Swensen it is then. Have not been here since very very long time ago... When I got there is about 7pm Sunday and there already a queue in front of the restaurant. When is finally our turn, the waiter ask us to make order first then she will bring us to our seat. This is what I dont like. I will prefer to seat down then go through the menu slowly. But maybe is the queue.. they just want to cut down on the waiting time? Oh well.. since I know what I came here for. I made a quick order.

The rib eye steak is not bad. Cant really complain with the price I paid. Which is about $26 iirc. The black peper source is good. It is a maybe revisit for me. Oh. one more thing. When I gave them my credit card to pay the bill.. it took way too long for them to get my card back.... Worried...

Service is exceptionally bad at this branch

I've noticed it since I'm a pretty frequent visitor to Swensen's. It takes forever for our food to arrive and the place is pretty cramped as well. Not good for big groups.
