    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.

    The food was great. The service was not so great. We ordered red sangria and received white sangria. I asked the waitress and she assured me it was red. Anyway, I tasted it and it was definitely white. She replaced it but charged us for both the red and the white. She also brought the brisket sandwich when I asked for brisket tacos. She did replace them with the tacos. Perhaps she was new but not well enough trained. Anyway, the food was so good that I would return and hope for better service.

    Our server was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We both had the Hunter Beef Stew which was very good and the Apple Crumble which was good, just the right amount of sweet and lovely tart apples. My husband appreciated that there were German beers available as the theme was Octoberfest. The following is not a complaint but comment. As the theme was Octoberfest, I would have liked to see a German wine on the menu. I also thought that Strudel would have been more in line with Octoberfest although I appreciate that the crumble might be more popular.

    Recently had dinner there indoors for the first time and it was packed with multi-generational families. I'm sure there were less rowdy areas in the restaurant or on the patio. The service was good and the food was great. Definitely will be coming back.

    For pub fare, the food at Amsterdam is outstanding. Unfortunately, the outdoor patio was crawling with vermin: mice were scurrying around under the tables. Yikes. What is going on there and is this problem confined to the patio? Very odd experience.

    We ate on the patio which was clean and not too noisy. It is enclosed which is nice, because the wind was roaring but we did not suffer from it. It also has good coverage from sun, if you were to be there in the daytime.
