Wonderful restaurant. Relaxed but stylish. Cooking is Michelin star quality without a doubt. Great flavors and beautiful presentation on the plate. Open kitchen means you can see the chef brigade working their magic.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
