This guide to the best steakhouses in Singapore was last updated on 1 July 2014.
A good steak is one of the best things you can have in life. We have tried many restaurants in Singapore to find the perfect steak, and here is a list of the best steakhouses in Singapore.
Bedrock Bar & Grill at Pan Pacific Serviced Suites is a modern New York style steakhouse. The restaurant boosts a dark, sexy, and classy interior; making it the ideal place to bring your client for a business luncheon, or your date for a romantic dinner.
The menu is small and concise. There are three US beef – 300g Dry Aged Ribeye ($96), 220g Tenderloin ($89), and 400g USDA Prime Black Angus Ribeye ($96); and three Australian beef – 400g Ribeye ($79), 350g Bone in Striploin ($69) and 500g Porterhouse ($89). For those in a big group, get the massive Tomahwak Steak for the table share.
Nestled amidst the Mohammed Sultan enclave, Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse makes an exciting new addition to the semi-fine dining scene in Singapore. This 6-month-old restaurant claims to be the first and only Italian restaurant specialising in steak.
The piece de resistance, a 1.2kg Fiorentina Wagyu T-bone steak ($178), would make any meat lover weak in the knees. Other options on Bistecca’s menu include: a 400g grass-fed Ribeye ($58), a 350g New York cut Striploin ($48), and a very good value for money Steak Sampler Plate ($78) consisting of half cuts of grass-fed and grain-fed striploin.
Prices are no where near cheap, but Bistecca Tuscan Stakhouse is definitely worth your while if you’re looking for quality food and personal service amidst a stunning setting, just for that special occasion. If anything, don’t miss out on the steaks. The beef is, after all, in their beef.
There are good steakhouses, and then there are great ones. CUT by Wolfgang Puck is definitely one of the latter. Wolfgang Puck’s outpost at Marina Bay Sands is the definition of a modern steakhouse. It is swanky, up-scale, and posh establishment that does very good steaks.
Take your pick from a choice selection that includes USDA Prime Steaks ($72-98), Australian Grain Fed Angus ($85-175), Snake River Farm Angus Kobe Beef ($160-185), and Japanese Wagyu Beef ($210-280).
Is CUT the best steak restaurant in Singapore? It is challenging to give an affirmation, because taste is after-all subjective — especially for steaks and their done-ness — and there are many good steakhouses in town. But I am going to go out on a limb and say that CUT, for me, is definitely one of the top 3 steakhouses in Singapore.

You know the restaurant is good when it only has one main course on the menu. Yes, that is right. L’Entrecote is a Parisian Bistro that only serves their signature Steak Frites as the main course, alongside a good selection of starters and desserts. At $29++ for the Steak Frites, this probably the most value-for-money steak in town.
The restaurant has a no-reservations policy, so make sure you go early to get a table.
Luke’s Chophouse & Oyster Bar
A chophouse is a restaurant that specialises in serving steaks and chops of meat that are expertly sourced and butchered. Helmed by Chef Travis Masiero, Luke’s is a classy and upmarket chophouse, the sort of restaurant that you will find in New York.
There are two steak options on the menu – a 300g Luke’s Bone-in Tenderloin (S$72), and a 400g USDA Prime Ribeye (S$87) which can be served “naked” or “Luau” style. Both steaks were perfectly grilled to spot-on pink. But if we had to choose between one, we would go for the prime ribeye. For the sides, the cream spinach and potato puree while decent, were not as good as Morton’s or CUT. A more affordable option is the Steak & Fries (S$35) that is served during lunch.
Luke’s Chophouse dishes out simple, but well-executed classic dishes, and while prices are steep, it is worth saving up for special occasions.

When you ask meat lovers to name their favourite steakhouse in Singapore, most of them would reply: Morton’s The Steakhouse at Mandarin Oriental Singapore.
Morton’s has been around for many years, and there is a reason why they have remained as one of the best steakhouses in Singapore. It is a place where you know that every piece of steak – whether it’s the fillet mignon, New York strip, or ribeye – will always be prepared perfectly. If money is no object, Morton’s The Steakhouse is definitely the place to go.
Just to sidetrack a little, you must not leave Morton’s without trying the legendary hot chocolate cake ($30). It was, hands up (pun intended), the best chocolate lava cake you can get in Singapore.

Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse is quite a household name among steak lovers, with over 130 restaurants worldwide. It has finally managed to find its way onto our shores. The restaurant, like the rest of the Marina Mandarin Hotel, is dimly lit and cosy. There is no fancy tableware or glitzy décor to speak of and is reminiscent of an authentic American steakhouse.
There are many choices on the menu, but go for the Filet Mignon ($85) and the USDA Prime Ribeye ($85 for 340g). They were exceedingly tender, pink and fully packed with beefy juices.
There is no shortage of steak restaurants in Singapore, and to make us excited over one takes more than just good food, yet Ruth’s Chris does just that. It impresses with authenticity and needless to say, the steaks are spectacular. The only downside is the rather steep pricing. But dining at Ruth’s Chris is more than just a meal; it is the experience of dining in this widely acclaimed steakhouse that has served and impressed steak lovers worldwide.

The Royal Mail at the iconic Ascott Raffles Place is the latest venture by restaurateur Michel Lu. It offers a modern take on classic British cuisine. The menu is compact, and the main focus is on its roast prime rib, which is easily one of the best that I have had in Singapore.
The Roast Prime Rib ($48 for 200g, $58 for 280g, $66 for 340g) here is tender, juicy and moist. It is that good. The prices are also very reasonable for the quality.
The Royal Mail is a fantastic addition to Singapore’s dining scene – they are one of the better mid-range steakhouses in Singapore. The restaurant is perfect during the day for a business luncheon – they have a fantastic three course set lunch at $38++/pax – and equally fitting in the evening for a romantic dinner date.

Wooloomooloo steakhouse, a popular steakhouse chain in Hong Kong, has started their first branch in Singapore at Swissotel the Stamford. The restaurant has a sleek and sexy interior, and most importantly, it offers top-quality Aussie beef.
The 12 ounce Australian Ribeye ($62) is a very fine piece of meat, and at the price, it is excellent value. If you are in a big group, I would suggest getting the 1.3kg tomahawk ($125) with a few sides – like the hash brown ($12), creamy spinach ($12), and sauteed onions ($12) – to share.
Wooloomooloo, for me, is one of the top mid-range steak houses in Singapore. I wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes one of your favourite places, too.
