Exquisite, breath-taking and delightful overall experience

The food is something different, I feel that every dish has a very strong flavour and almost all the dishes is really thick & rich. 
I had the alaskan crab pasta as my main course and the flavour of the pasta is mad flavourful! 
He had the 48 hour short ribs and it is soft, moist and juicy. 
This restaurant is a place perfect for your anniversaries/birthday.

Cool place

Dining experience here is incredible. Though the food and service is seriuosly lacking, admittedly it was still an enjoyable experience; mainly due to the majestic ambiance. I was simply in awe of the surroundings, making the dinner a very relaxing and enjoyably romantic moment with wifey.

Anniversary Dinner

Full review on my blog: http://lynnechua.blogspot.com/2014/11/white-rabbit-for-our-two-point-five.html

Beautiful setting, good service was experienced even though we read nasty comments from other reviewers, I guess we're just lucky. Ordered wagyu carpaccio as appetizer, it was the best carpaccio I ever had. Alaskan king crab pasta was disappointing and 36h Brandt Short Ribs was alright as mains. We finished it off with crepe where the chef prepared it right in front of us. 

Generally a good experience. Go there for the ambience and don't be picky on the food, you'll definitely enjoy it. =)
Truffle chicken

Truffle Chicken

Some crazy notion got me craving for truffle chicken; and googling got me to The White Rabbit. At my first visit, I was told that it was sold out and the waiter suggested that I come earlier another day. It was fine with me so I ordered pumpkin risotto instead. The risotto was bland and the portion small. However, it appeals to me since I like bland. The second time round, I made sure that I reached the restaurant 5 minutes after it opens but was told that it was not available. That really annoyed me because twice denied is a very hurtful rejection experience. I excused myself and went somewhere else. Nevertheless I still called to make a dinner reservation with my specific food request for that very same day. The request was acceded. Well, no lady likes feeling rejected; so I went for dinner with silent hurting. To my pleasant surprise, the staff were very nice to me and my companion. They were very polite and attentive to us the entire evening; they even gave us complimentary mushrooms to make up. All in all, dining in The White Rabbit is still a very pleasant experience (except for a probably innocent "hope you enjoyed your chicken" remark at our departure which sounds like it carried a bite). The bread served before the meal was warm and flavourful. The butter melts upon spreading, adding to the bread a rich and juicy flavour. The long-awaited truffle chicken and mushrooms however, turned out to be a little too salty. We enjoyed the beef carpaccio though.

What a waste of a building

This is the most incredible setting but that's where the good bit ends. Poorly conceived and cooked food, dreadful service, exorbitant prices... Such a shame because with the right owner and chef this could be the most incredible restaurant or even a mediocre one, but this one is just poor. If it were a hawker stall it would have closed down and frankly you should save your money and opt for any alternative should you be tempted to eat there.
