Food quality was ok, but nowhere near where it should be given prices. No comparison to Zuma, Nobu and others. Restaurant floor, glass counter on chef’s kitchen were dirty, so there is an issue with general cleanliness

Het eten was fantastisch, de bediening was goed, alleen jammer dat we na 2 uur moesten verhuizen naar het terras. We waren nog niet uitgegeten en gedronken dat was wel jammer. We zaten goed op het terras maar het was beter geweest als we na 3 uur aan een tafel konden zitten.

You should update the online reservation system by including a question like: are children part of your accompany while you visit the restaurant and if yes, provide the age of the children. If such information is not asked when making the reservation, we as customers will not provide it, which is automatic and normal. But what happened to us when we arrived izakaya yesterday was that we were questioned by the waitress, and “blamed” for us not telling the restaurant in our reservation that we would have two young children with us at diner. Otherwise she would have prepared another table for us. Maybe her motivation was good. But isn’t it the task of the restaurant to modify their reservation form to solve similar issues but not that of us, the customers? There was and is nothing to be belated from our side, but you, as a restaurant, beed to keep a track of what you need to know fr your customers.

Izakaya used to be one of my favorite restaurants, because of the great food, great atmosphere and being a fun place to dine. I’ve recommended it to several friends, took groups of colleagues there and even celebrated my birthday with friends there. However, this year the service has really taken a nosedive. It’s such a pity, as the great food (which is still amazing) doesn’t taste as good when you don’t feel welcome. The waiters are fine, however the hostesses don’t seem to care about the guests’ experience, and even go as far as ruining it.

Food was great… service was attentive and helpful. Highly recommend the spicy tuna on fried rice and the scallops with truffles. We were expecting to spend far more than we did. The server steered us in the right direction regarding what dishes to order and what amount would be sufficient for two diners and he was spot on. Ended up having an absolutely delicious meal and cost half as much as we anticipated spending.

Maybe our expectations were too high but they were unfortunately not met.

A bit of an attitude of the staff, they were friendly but some mistakes were made. However they corrected them.

Ik vond het niet heel bijzonder. Moesten een paar keer vragen om ons drankje. Lege glazen werden niet meegenomen en met afrekenen kon er geen dankjewel af. Heel bijzonder..

Enige restaurant in Amsterdam waar ik altijd tevreden de deur uitga. Zowel het eten als de service is geweldig. Service van Izakaya vind je niet zo snel elders. Heel goed geholpen door Charissa, een dame uit Spanje en uit Macnhester. Loved them all. Ralf, thanks voor de cocktails!

We had a wonderful time at Izakaya. We sat at the bar and the service was excellent, our server was able to recommend a bunch of things for us to order and everything was amazing. Definitely a splurge evening but highly recommend for a special occasion!

Had a delicious dinner at Izakaya. Took the set menu and it has a number of very pleasant surprises (no, will not spoil it for you). Good music and nice atmosphere. Dubai like atmosphere and audience.

Very nice service and the food is on point. Quick note that the music was on the loud side when i visited so if you want a quiet dinner its something to keep in mind. But all in all a great experience.
