A rare ‘date night’ with my son as his sister was busy. We were able to relax and talk, disconnect from screens and play card games. There was no rush and a perfect atmosphere to enjoy the time.

The atmosphere, service and food are all reasonable to keep coming back. Such beautiful patios upstairs and down and I highly recommend coming with family, friends, or even date night. Thanks so much to Katie for a great experience.

The server was friendly but she was not efficient she did not obtain our orders on time and when we had request for additional condiments. She forgot to bring the condiments and has to be reminded several times. She did not follow up on our food and failed to follow up on the late guest that wanted to order food but came later. Overall I didn’t love the service the food was mediocre regular pub food. Fish and chips were a large portion and fish was dry but average.

Had a great time with my friends at this spot. The hostesses were welcoming and were kind enough to change the TV channel for me to an NBA finals game that was playing that night. The restaurant is very clean and elegant. Our server went above and beyond and handled one of our friends arriving late/us dining later than we were supposed to really well. The food is really good. I wouldn't mind the menu being a bit cheaper though. The prices are reasonable for a once in a while get-together but could be considered pricey if you want to make it a regular spot.

While we had great waitress and food and drinks were good the initial interaction with staff at the door was totally disappointing. We had booked the outdoor seating through Open Table and the receptionist guided us to an indoor seating and when I told her that we have reserved the outdoor she was very rude and questioned me who I had talked to and that they dont see any notes attached to our reservation. Thanks to Open Table app i was able to prove it that I had outdoor reservation. I was totally surprised that attitude at greeting after a long time going back to restuarant

This was my second meal at Amsterdam since it re-opened for patio service. This time I met a friend for lunch. My first meal out with a non-family member since before the pandemic. We both ordered salads - I had the caesar and my friend had the beet and goat cheese. We were both very pleased. The service and ambience were excellent.

Overall, a good experience. The servers were friendly and supportive - moving us to a lower table to assist my mom. We had one small issue with an order which was fixed with a “no problem” attitude. One suggestion for bookings - perhaps ask people if stairs are an issue; we had someone with a mobility issue, and had we thought about it would have specifically asked to sit downstairs. Next time!

The chicken wings and burger were up to par and we have enjoyed those dishes there at an earlier date. However, we thought the cauliflower appetizer wasn't as good as we remembered. This time, the pieces seemed a bit soggy, they weren't as crisp as previously enjoyed and I think the price is a bit high. At $14, the dish costs almost as much as an order of wings. However, none of this will keep us away and we plan to bring friends who haven't previously been there. And, we are really looking forward to indoor dining, not only for the food and service but for the comfortable chairs.
