Lotti's Ratings and Reviews
Artichoke puffs (sort of a free form soufflé) with puffed (puréed) beetroot and parsnips were wonderful! We also had the bulgur salad with squid, pomegranate and chickpea with chili dressing. That's a dish I'll try to figure out once we are home. My husband had lemon sole with risotto and grilled fennel. Our waitress was charming and helpful and the loft area with banquettes where we sat was warm and cozy. Lively outdoor canal side seating and a young crowd make this a happy destination in Amsterdam.
The food was good as always, the service was above standard for a Dutch restaurant, but not mind blowing. After completing the lunch and clearing our plates, a waiter didn't come to our table for at least 15 minutes to offer either more drinks or ask for the bill. Small item, but other than that everything was great.
Great food, great service, nicely priced.
Hip Amsterdam folk come here, international crowd, hotel clientele. Had a wonderful lunch the other day and took my girlfriend to dinner. Furnitured in a seventies style, combined old and new tables and chairs. Club feeling, well to do people but also families. Wouldn't bring small kids though.
Open roof restaturn.
The restaurant has a great atmosphere, however the food didn't blow me away. The scallops treated lovely, but the portion was definitely not a main portion size. I recommend the white bean dip as a starter though, although wish there would have been more of that great bread. The prices were high for what you get.
Food is exceptional and staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Only issue is that there was a very long wait for mains (>1hr after starters were cleared) which they did apologise for and give us free drinks but which put a dampener on the evening as we were all very hungry.
Overall, its a very good restaurant - it was just too slow.
Mediocre food: burger was overcooked and plain, no salt no spices just a piece of dry overcooked ground mbeef in a basic bun with mayonaise. Dulce de leche dessert was not impressive either: a piece of grilled brioche with an ice cream.
Very slow service: we waited for burger for about 45 min and had to order desserts twice because the waitress forgot about our first order.
Overall a disappointing experience. I work down the street from Lotti's and had eaten there once before for a business lunch (more than a year ago). I guess the team/management has changed since then...
We went with a group of friends (one of whom is a 20+ yr career chef) for a Sunday brunch and we were not impressed with the food or the service.
There were a ton of wait staff, but they didn't seem to be communicating on who was doing what. We had 3 different people ask us repeatedly for our drink orders and yet we still had to ask twice for the cappuccinos to be brought to the table after they were ordered.
The food was mediocre for the price. Pancakes were a bit on the rough/tough side, not necessarily the super fluffy American style, but not Dutch style either. The poached eggs were obviously pre-poached and all three poached egg dishes we ordered were very overdone when they arrived. The eggs were more hard boiled, not poached. One of my friends actually sent her dish back and the replacement egg they gave her was still very overcooked. Kitchen team also seemed flustered and didn't appear to be communicating properly which is awkward to observe from your table - there were only 3 kitchen staff and the restaurant was pretty crowded. The plating of the food wasn't great either as the amount of food on the plates makes the portions look small and the plate quite empty (a lot of white space). You'd expect a bit nicer presentation for the type of venue.
We also had to ask twice to get the bill - eventually I went to the register to pay as it was never brought to the table. They 'mistakenly' charged us for an entire bottle of prosecco (45 EUR) when only one glass was ordered. I noticed this mistake after paying by card; fortunately they were able to give me the difference in cash.
All in all, definitely not in any hurry to go back to Lotti's.
This was the second time for brunch at Lotti's - the food is good, the ambience okay though it can get difficult to talk when crowded. My only complaint, but it's a big one, is that none of the serving staff speak Dutch - I noticed the previous time as well. I think this is ridiculous in the middle of Amsterdam - it's fine to be international and cater to visitors, but not at the cost of losing your identity like this. Why should I have to speak a foreign language in the city I live in?
