The Brasserie Ambassade is set in an historic canal building and decorated with paintings by the post-WWII modern COBRA artists. The food is delicious French cuisine elegantly served by knowledgeable wait staff. My husband and both had the very tasty crispy-skinned filet bar with asparagus, fennel, lentils, and saffron beurre blanc. He started with the pâté de champagne; I chose the artichaut bargioule, and we finished with the intensely chocolate but light fondant au chocolate accompanied by warm cherry sorbet and a shot of coconut shake. As we were seated at a window overlooking the canal, we could people and boat watch while we dined. We saw a boat with a fully set table pull up for a few minutes and one of the waitresses take plates of oysters out to the couple onboard. One of the waiters told us that you can hire a boat for a private dinner. The boat stops at two or three restaurants for starters, the main course, and dessert as it makes its way along the canal. A progressive dinner on water! We would highly recommend this restaurant for the fine food, service, and friendliness of the staff.
Our appetizer and desserts were phenomenal, if only the entree had lived to same standards. Overall a very beautiful restaurant, a bit pricey but very nice evening.
Lovely restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. All the staff were great, nice window seats and excellent food and wine! Thank you.
Excellent food, very pleasant staff!
Adam and I enjoyed everything about this meal. The art was fabulous as was knowing more about it. The wait staff was excellent; I wish I'd written down the name of the woman who waited on us as she was especially engaging and made us feel truly at home. Had we spent more time in Amsterdam, we would have returned again.
Excellent food & service. Perfect setting
I had the surprise chef lunch menu, from starter (rillette of duck) to main (Fish risotto) and dessert (chocolate tartlet), I begun with little or no expectations but they exceeded my own very high fussy standards. The presentation was just beautiful, the food's flavour was sublime and left me wanting more. The service is amazing. This is a perfect combination of brilliant food and amazing service. This is truly a hidden gem of Amsterdam. The chef and staff, I applaud you all👏🏾
Spectacular dinner, selections, service, and wines! Best experience in Amsterdam thus far!
Foie de canard - pan seared duck liver is amazing - been there 5 times and consistently great food, terrific ambience and fine service
Wonderful restaurant. Everything was beyond expectations. Highly recommend this place
