I have been to Cecconi's 3 times in the past 8 weeks, so having given it a fair shake, I am sad to say it does not live up to the usual Soho House standards. There are two highlight dishes (the Agnolotti and swordfish carpaccio - both delicious) while the rest are very average. The service is good for Amsterdam (so not great but not bad either). The maître d'(s) were friendly but extremely disorganised, on 2 of the 3 occasions they failed to inform us when our table was ready, we were left sitting in the bar despite repeatedly bringing to their attention that we were waiting. Saturday night was nothing short of chaos. Surely there would be a better system for this? Overall very disappointing. Overall quality needs improvement to match the price. Recommend to avoid weekends but good for a week day business dinner. Or join the 'power couples' at the bar for a bite.
Disappointed at service, food just OK. Not the kind of place I would recommend to anybody
Niemand spreekt er nederlands. Service is arrogant.
Eten is nodeloos moeilijk doen met een slecht resultaat.
Ik ga er nooit meer heen.
Deze zaak geeft een geheel nieuwe invulling aan het begrip ballentent.
Service very pleasant but just a bit slow.
Please urgent need of “hooks” to hang your bag on; at the bar and in toilet.
Plse more vegetarian food
Eggplant with parmesan delicious
More variety in vegetarian salads & soups
We sent back the ravioli twice as it was raw. The octopus was not eaten as it was overcooked and the roast potatoes were returned as cold.
We left the restaurant smelling of cooking fat, as we were seated near the kitchen and the Maitre D' advised that there were problems with the extractor fans.
DO NOT GO.
Cecconis in their London sites is fabulous . This is not.
A huge disappointment.
Great service but the food was unfortunately a big disappointment.
The bar looks like a lot of fun. I would go back for drinks but not for a dinner.
Net zoals Londen, fantastisch
Amazing pizza, very nice location, service is very good and efficient! Ups: Bellini’s & pizza! It is nice to have a place like that in Amsterdam
Our welcome words were ‘you will have to leave after two hours, that is our policy’! Also we did make a reservation at the bar (confirmed) but that was not available. The starters were great (vitello tonato and burata). The pasta with lobster was good but the chicken was really bad; do not order this!!!! Nice wine and good service; except that we were send away as soon as we finished our desert. The policy is understandable but was brought very unfriendly and also not mentioned even we made our reservation.
Anything goes! Chic, classy, yet casual and formal at the same time. Dress down is the request of this internationally successful chain. Very social, hip and vibrant in such a great central location. A creative vibe in luxuriously stunning interior setting. Whether you’re chilling in the comfy arm chairs for coffee, up on a high bar stool chair for drinks or sat eating at a table. It’s the new place to be seen in Amsterdam! Hopefully you’ll get a table!
Very nice food and the service is great (which is quite special for Amsterdam)
specially the pre-dinner drinks in the fantastic bar-chairs, we liked
next time we would like to dine @ a ´ normal ´ table.
Great Evening. Lovely atmosphere with live music in the background but i didnt find it too loud. For the setting and the service I think the pricing was reasonable. Lots of food choices. Would recommend for a special occassion.
The service was absolutely terrible. Slow service. Does not Deserve to be at soho house.
Rumoerig, graag meer geluidsisolatie, eten oké, maar niet wow .. lokatie is prachtig
Geweldige locatie, heerlijk eten en on-Amsterdamse prijzen. Te goedkoop dus
Cecconi's is the new landmark in Amsterdam. Absolutely a favourite and will guarantee a fantastic evening!!!
Food is ok. Not very special
we came for bday celebration
They didn’t even ask and notice 😔
A disappointing experience. We drove quiet some time to have lunch at one of our favorite restaurants. We have been at Cecconi's in Berlin, Barcelona and NY. and expecting a lot from Amsterdam. We made reservation for lunch on a Sunday. When we arrived we could not order a la carte but only take the lunch buffet. We did not want that so we had to leave. I advised the restaurant to mention on the website that a la carte is not possible on Sunday for lunch. It only says that they serve a buffet but nothing is mentioned that there are no other possibilities. Why didn't they tell me when I made the reservation 2 months ago? One positive thing, we did not have to pay for the drinks we ordered while waiting for the waiter with the menu...... I do not know if I want to make the journey again to try the menu.
Poor service although food and atmosphere was good. With reservation at 8pm (6 weeks in advance!) no dinner table available. Even at 8.30pm.
We got a table in the drinks/lounge-area but the chairs and tables were not suitable to have dinner. The wine cooler stood far away from the table. Personeel didn’t pay enough Attention. The Irish coffee was far from hot.
In the end quite disappointing experience.
Alles klopt hier !! Fantastische avond gehad.
Top top top! SoHo House en Cecconi’s zijn een aanwinst voor Amsterdam!!
Food was Good. Ambiance also Good. Service, need to be fine tuned.
Have visited all over the world. Especially like this one in Amsterdam.
Do you only thing I didn’t like was the oil smell from the kitchen. My clothes have to be washed because of the smell
Too Much noise to have a normal conversation . beach chairs with lay back function doesn’t make it easier. Very very much smoke coming from the open kitchen !! We went away asap after our dinner. Our eyes hurt a lot of the smoke. Complaining by waitress didn’t t help.
Back in the lounge no table available.
Personnel doesn’t respond on our request to find a table. All our clothes need dry cleaning !!!
Cocktails are not very surprising we be tested six ones ! Food is salty. Hospitality should improve in lounge !! This nice building deserves much much better
Goed intaliaans eten in een prachtig gerestaureerd art deco gebouw met mooi interieur & design! Zeer de moeite waard!
Absolutely loved it! The Italian food tastes like in Italy, the wines are exquisite and the atmosphere friendly and cosy. Loved the decor, feels like being in a maffioso film😁. The only reason it doesn't hit 5stars allover for me, was that although they've got a huge ventilation system, the smell of the kitchen couldn't be contained... But we sat close to the kitchen, guess it's better further away...
Very unpleasant experience. Never again. Sad. Unfriendly waiter, poor food unlike other Cecconis
Great food! Nice ambience and friendly staff. We hada 3-course lunch. Would def go here for dinner next time.
Food was really good , but the service was so really poor.( not all the staff) some Wauters were good but some and important the two managers are so arrogant .
Really enjoyed the beautiful restaurant, lovely food and attentivre staff!
Late lunch 3pm
Restaurant staff were nice and friendly
After we were sitting at the lounge
Friends come by talked and had cocktails
We got unpleasant comments from the manager
We broke the records, we were there too long
Unprofessional , and shocking
Enjoyed a great evening great food ,ambiance is super cosy. Great night.
Food was great but poor inattentive service let it down and spolit overall experience.
Nice ambiance, but a bit noisy. Staff is friendly and helpful. Food is greasy and portions are really too big. Not enough choice in vegetarian food.
My experience was fair/good, however I was told that this was perhaps one of the best restaurants in Amsterdam. This wasn’t my experience.
I recommend that the hostess be a bit more courteous and pleasant in the first instant. First impressions go a long way.
Booked a table at 14:30 and first thing we got told when we arrive is that they stop serving food at 3 and that all staff will be gone by then! ah. Why offer the options to book a table at 2:30, 3, 3:30 when you cannot eat after 3?
Place is nice, food was good but we were rushed. Booked for my husband's birthday. Too bad.
