Brasserie Ambassade is as much a visionary delight as it is a sophisticated dining experience. The service is professional and friendly, and the collection of dining rooms allow for intimate seating arrangements.

What a lovely place in Amsterdam. Right on the canal and part of a hotel that is subtle in the neighborhood. Great service and the food was excellent.

We had an amazing time at this restaurant. First, as soon as my date and I got there we were welcomed very nicely. They promptly sat us down and were offered the menu. Service was impeccable and very attentive, they were always on top of everything, water, wine, bread, etc. The food was amazing, superb quality food for the price, I had the duck confit and my beautiful date had the sea bass, delicious, they were cooked to perfection! I'm very glad I chose this place for our special dinner.

A decent menu which had sufficient choice for me to start worrying about which dish to choose. Wine list by the glass a little restricted (I dined alone) but I struggled manfully through. Service good and not too overbearing. Overall I was pleased to have found the place, would recommend it and will return on my next trip to Amsterdam

The service at this restaurant was outstanding! We were waited on immediately, which isn't too common in the restaurants we went to in Amsterdam. We enjoyed a bottle of wine, and the food was outstanding. They brought over bread, and it was so good we got another basket of it. It was a quiet, beautiful atmosphere for enjoying good food and wine.

Great meal but would point out two shortcomings:

The ambience could be increased by playing some decent background music: Light jazz would be perfect

We ordered a plate of frites with our meal and this did not arrive until both our mains were finished despite us reminding our waiter (who was excellent in every other respect)

My wife’s had their cheesecake for sweet and remarked it was the best she had ever eaten - and that’s a lot!

We had a dinner for three. The atmosphere is beautifully decorated. Even though, the restaurant was full, the sound level wasn’t too loud. We were able to have a nice conversation without raising our voices. We also loved our food. All three of us loved our starters and mains. The wine options were also very reasonably price. The service was very attentive without being over bearing. Overall, a great dinner. We would come back the next time we are in Amsterdam.

We dined their for dinner and for lunch. It is a lovely restaurant on the Herengracht canal, it is attached to and part of the hotel. The food service and ambiance are perfect.
Our dinner and lunch were very good. The warmth, and friendliness of the waitstaff made it very special. They also have a very lovely library bar to be enjoyed.

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.

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.

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👏🏾
