    We tried the Amsterdam Brewhouse on the first night of winterlicious. I’ve been there couple times before so I knew that their food is good. There was a mishap in the kitchen with our main meal. We were really impressed by how our server, Sylvie and Manager, Malorie, handled the situation. They were very apologetic and without issue, provided solutions. They even comped our meal. We were truly happy and grateful for such amazing service. Food was great and we left full and satisfied. Thank you again!

    The meal was excellent. For dessert I ordered the bread pudding and received a generous portion. I was also there the week prior and ordered the bread pudding with the same portion upon finishing our meal. I ordered three extra bread pudding’s for takeout. When I got home, I was extremely disappointed as I was charged the same price, but received three tiny servings of bread pudding! I spent an incredible amount at the restaurant and gave a generous tip. I brought my friend for her birthday and we ordered appetizer drinks, alcohol, two entrées and two desserts on top of that three extra takeouts. I try to attach a picture, but was not successful. The portions are received for takeout are definitely not worth the price. I paid for one bread pudding at the restaurant. if this is what takeout from the restaurant will look like it is an extremely poor representation of the experience in the restaurant.

    Save that opentable kept defaulting my reservation to o second Amsterdam location, the place was well outfitted with decent and varied food options. Lighting was quite high and the font and colour of the menu difficult to read even with that. Portions, flavour and quality were good on all 3 plates.

    The restaurant was a lot noisier than I anticipated. There were lots of small kids - one of whom was very unhappy to be there. I know this is something that isn’t in the restaurant’s control so I don’t blame you. But then someone decided to add loud music to the din and that just seemed uncalled for.

    We had a wonderful meal and experience. The service was extremely fast and still hot. The waitress was very knowledgeable and did an exceptional job describing the food on the menus and the beer menu. The atmosphere was great and I enjoyed the IPA beer. Highly recommend. Prices are slightly high but in line with the current economic issues.

    The food was expertly prepared, flavourful and "different". Love the smashed potatoes and the 12 hour brisket. The service from Danielle was as on previous occasions exemplary. She made us feel right at home. The place is clean and tidy. I can not say I am in love with the open concept - I personally would prefer something a bit cozier. The prices are in line with other restaurants but the originality and taste quality exceeds any place at this price that I can think of. Great guys. I can not wait for the spring and summer for the patio. I will enjoy your beer that much more then.

    We had dinner with another couple for a Christmas get together on a Friday night. Our server was a delightful lady that provided us with excellent attention and hospitality. Three members in our group had the lemon schnitzel and our 4th guest had the fish tacos. The lemon schnitzel was excellent and we were pleased to see that the rapini has been changed to crispy red cabbage - yummy - with the smashed potatoes that came with the schnitzel as in the past. We were not however fond of the lemon aioli sauce that was on the side. Our 4th guest loves the fish tacos and every time she dines at Amsterdam’s she has to have them. This was the first time we were also introduced to Amsterdam’s Pretzel. It was excellent and we will be ordering it again the next time we come to Amsterdam’s. Lovely evening . Thank you.

    Home to Toronto’s most overcooked burger. I can’t imaging charging twenty-something bucks for a ‘steak house’ burger and than insisting that you will only do it well done… but if burgers than have the consistency and taste of a hockey puck are your jam, than this is your place. If we go back it would be for the brisket sandwich which was fine. The bar didn’t have the vanilla syrup to make the cocktail I ordered, and there was some problem with my dining companions, but the beer (our fall back) was fine. I guess.. if you’re hungry, this place is fine. But you could probably do better.

    I hadn't been to Amsterdam for a few months and my friend had never been. We were both very pleased with the ambience, the cosy roaring fire and the excellent service. The server was friendly, informative and obligingly took our photos. The staff greeted us and said farewell. It certainly made us want to return. My friend very much enjoyed her fish n chips and I enjoyed the chicken schnitzel which was as tasty as I recall from past visits. We both found our British brown ale to be excellent. Unfortunately, a number of items were off the menu which I assume is due to ongoing shortages but it does make for less variety but this was explained upfront.

    Our server was fantastic, the food is generally good but on this visit, the fish (fish & chips) was not great. Server was very attentive. It was pretty cold upstairs as if someone had a window open and it was freezing outside. I really like this restaurant so would give them another chance.

    We were there on a Saturday night. The ambiance was great and our server was excellent. We ordered the buffalo cauliflower bites which were cold. There were few vegan/vegetarian options and I ordered the portobello mushroom burger which was mediocre at best. May I recommend that a veggie burger be added to the menu. If that happens, we would come back for sure.
