Had a 2:30 reservation but when we showed up at 2:30, we were told they had closed at 2pm. Then they sent us to another restaurant which happened to be closed as well once we got there.

Wow what a gorgeous restaurant. The food was fantastic, wine was delicious, service was everything you would expect from a fine dining experience and the ambiance of the restaurant was phenomenal. Really beautiful. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, as would my 4 friends who I dined with.

Relaxed and nice dinning ambiance with excellent food although limited menu choices. Service was very good and overall experience for this in hotel restaurant was excellent. Check menu prior to assure items meet your taste and choice in dietary as well as appetite desires.
Pre-fix option is a good value.

I had a really unfortunate experience dining here. I had sent the restaurant a list of my allergies (of which I do have quite a few and their quite serious) to the restaurant in advance and went over them again when I arrived. I was assured that the dishes I ordered would be fine, however I ended up having an awful allergic reaction that ended up lasting over 24 hours. I was so physically ill that I wasn't able to leave my hotel room for the entirety of my weekend trip to Amsterdam, except to go to the hospital where I had to pay over $200 for treatment for my allergic reaction. On top of this, we still were asked to pay (albeit a reduced amount) but I find this particularly frustrating, especially in light of then having to pay hospital bills for this meal. While the team were really nice and were obviously sorry, I would not recommend this place to anyone with food allergies.

Everything is great - food was well prepared but the presentations were a little busy/overworked/over the top for my taste. Short rib with cashews, micro greens and more details.

It was ok, but expected more. Saw some pictures on social media that looked nice however once there it felt a bit bland. It's a pity because the restaurant is pretty.

The brunch was not at all a brunch. It was lunch with a buffet bar and not a single egg option (what is a brunch with an eggs Benedict option!?!?!) The lunch mains were delicious but the portions were tiny. This went hand in hand with service. The waitress did not advise on anything - both the good and the bad. When asked about the champagne pairing that was offered, the waitress said it was cava, when in fact she poured me Ruinart (should play this up!). But the coffee latte was poured from an automatic machine that’s visible to visitors - the same one I have in my cheap office (should hide this!)

Overall, 67 EUR for a mediocre spread, a great tiny dish, a small pour of great champagne and a cup of meh coffee... not worth it.

very good service but it can mean you got approached multiple of times what could be a border between good and disturbing service. I will not say the food is fine dining but it is refine brasserie style food, too bad it is lack of depth in taste. Pure quality they deliver.

for comfort food to business say 7-8/10

The service was good. The food and the presentation, top notch. I only wish there was an egg dish on the menu. I love eggs. And a perfect omelette will get 5 stars from me. My guest really enjoyed the entire experience.

We had an amazing Brunch last sunday. For 39€ you get an All-you-can-eat buffet, which is incredibly. The best thing is that you can also order one meal A la Carte. I had chicken and my friend got beef. Both meals were super yummy. At the buffet you get everything you want. There is also an dessert buffet which is included. We really enjoyed the food and we can totally recommend this place.

De locatie en inrichting/styling ademen een top atmosfeer uit vooral het lounge/receptie gedeelte is enrgiek en van deze tijd(international).

Wij hadden de pech dat wij de enige gasten waren in het restaurant en dat brvordert uiteraard
niet de atmosfeer.

De keuken/chef maakt zijn ambitie/pretentie niet waar als wij dat beoordelen op wat wij hebben besteld en genuttigd hebben.

Jammer en ik weet zeker dat het de kwaliteit wel in huis is.......................

The place is absolutely lovely, with food and great staff.

We went there for a business lunch and everything was great. The only thing that caught our attention was the fact there were no other people at this time in the restaurant, which may be because it is mostly used for breakfasts, dinners and weekend brunches.

I would definitely recommend it for a brunch (I have been there on Saturdays, it is amazing experience) and for business dinner.

This is our second time at Blue Spoon. The overall experience is always amazing. The food is just great. It's all local Dutch sourced food and they put their own very creative spin on it. We had the haring tartar and I never tasted haring thus way. I never really like haring prior to it. But decided to try it. Just great!
All dishes are great and they never fail to disappoint. The service is good and just love their interior. The garden is a must see.

Loved this restaurant. Hoping to go by again before I leave Amsterdam.
I'm from Austin, TX and I was so happy to find that this bar offered amazing hand crafted cocktails. Many restaurants in Amsterdam have wonderful wine and beer choices but lack the amazing cocktails we found at Bluespoon. I had a margarita and my friend had Rose Petal margarita. They were so good.
Dinner was great too with attentive service and a delicious choice of food.

Excellent Food and Service; For the week we were in Amsterdam this was our best meal so we ate there twice; We tried several starters and several entrees and they were all excellent and not too heavy like some of the other restaurants there; The wine list was reasonable.

2nd visit for Sunday Brunch and food was very good again. Nice spontaneous staff and stylish surroundings.
Should be more clear about what's included during the Sunday Brunch and what's not though... The lovely coffees (latte, cappuccino etc.) served by the staff and fresh juices from the buffet are included but bottled water is not...??
Starters buffet is very good (mostly vegetables with some combined meat/fish salads) but ingredients were 'cheaper' than during the last time we went for brunch. Main courses and dessert buffet was again lovely and top class!! Still recommended!
