We wanted to eat at the bluespoon to celebrate the engagement of my friend and my own university graduation. Unfortunately one of the waiter made us feel that we didn't belong to this place. Two other waiters were kind and polite so at the end it was a good experience. But I would not recommend this place if you have not a lot of money to spend and you want to be treaten correctly. Food was ok but not worth the price. I would recommand the restaurant Jansz really fency and beautiful a great food not to expencive and a perfect service.

Went to Bluespoon with my mum to celebrate my 40th birthday. From the moment we arrived the staff treated us like royalty and every course that we were served was exquisite. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience and the decor (by Marcel Wanders) is very unique. If I am ever in Amsterdam again I will definitely return to Bluespoon

We kwamen voor een verjaardagsdiner, en zijn door de crew waanzinnig in de watten gelegd. Wat een culinaire heerlijkheden. En de bijpassende wijnen waren top. Het was helaas niet druk, maar misschein was dat ook wel weer lekker, want we kregen de volle aandacht. We kijken er naar uit om dit nog een keer met vrienden te herhalen.

Food was fantastic and the wines that accompanied were well chosen.

However we had pretty poor service. My wife and I are Americans but have been living in Amsterdam for almost 2 years. We understand that service in Amsterdam is different than other places. We did the 4 course menu and it took over 3 hrs. The time between when the 2nd course plates and wine glasses were taken and third course wine was poured was 45 minutes. We were forgotten about. When we were finally able to find someone they asked if our main course had been served yet. We had said no. Another 15 minutes went by and we were served. So that is an hourr between courses.

During the time we were waiting between meals we noticed that other tables that did the wine pairing were allowed to the taste the wine before having it served. We were never offered to taste. In addition we noticed that the English speaking tables were not offered tastes, but the Dutch speaking were. This is a hotel restaurant, why should there be a difference.

Overall, great food, poor service and I will never go again.

Gazpacho: Good but did need more of the liquid element alongside the lovely fresh additions. Liquid barely wet the surface. Intense flavour. Veal tenderloin delicious and meltingly tender. Accompaniments good but not as good... fennel simply cooked in a quarter, nice reduction somewhere. Pasta was simple and well done. Apple dessert basically a mille feuille and v light not over sweet. Fair selection of wines by glass but nothing v outstanding. Willing if slightly distracted service. Only 2 tables occupied and the wines came late so heaven knows what like if busy! Does feel a bit like you are in a hotel lobby which of course you are....Would go again, but not sure if lunch or dinner.

This was by far the most amazing experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant.
The staff were very helpful and insightful with all the food brought to the table and very kind.
The manageress was very welcoming and lovely, she was also patient and full of knowledge all about the food and wines. She also informed us that the ingredients and cooking was typically Dutch with made the experience more authentic.
We went for a birthday meal for my boyfriends birthday and with him being a chef he is very particular. He said his experience was very enjoyable and he thoroughly enjoyed all his food especially the short rib.
My favourite course was the ‘in between course’ of Scallops. This I can honestly say was the most delicious and incredible dish I have ever tasted, the flavours were amazing and wine paring matched it beautifully.
I will definitely be coming back when I next visit Amsterdam and can not wait to taste the chefs new dishes, should they change.
Thank you to the staff and chefs at Bluespoon for a lovely and enjoyable evening.

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.
