It was ok, not the best value for money though. I expected more from a Michelin star
The time we arrived the duchess was almost empty and service was excellent. After a while it was getting bussy and then the service went down. Food was good for pricing. Only not star worthy. We had a good time with nice food.
Amazing evening at the Duchess!
Every plate that came out was beautiful to the eyes, nose and mouth. Cooked and prepared to perfection. The creek brûlée, was one of the best I’ve ever had.
Service could have been a bit better for a fine dining experience but all around very good.
We had booked a table a week in advance and were asked if we would like a round table. We really appreciated this. However, upon arrival, no round table was available. The hostess promised us, after seeing that we really wanted a round table, that she would arrange one if one was free.
We took our seats and then for 20 minutes nobody attended to us! I stood up myself to ask a waiter to serve us. Scandalous for a restaurant of this level. About 30 min after we had started our high tea experience a round table became available. We asked fir this table but the hostess Did not want to arrange this. too much trouble apparently.
Furthermore, we had the high tea arrangement with champagne. For a price difference of € 18 p.p I had expected more than just one glass of champagne. The waiter that served us in the end was friendly and correct but overall it was not a recommendable experience.
The food was amazing; the beef tartar, the beef Wellington and the short ribs where outstanding, melting in the mouth delicious! Also the recommendation of wine and desert were great aswell. A special thank you to our female Serbian hostess, she was attentive and gave us the best advice! Cant wait to come again.
Incredible food and drinks, attentive service, and beautiful atmosphere. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam.
One of the worst valentine night ever.
Starting from the conoscete lack of decorations for the event, a little of romanticism would have been appreciated.
The real problem of the night where the waiters and the manager.
I ordered some cocktail and after 20 minutes the waiter came saying they don’t know what we ordered. This is unaxaptable especially when one Negroni cost me 16.5€ and I am in 5 stars hotel.
Then I ordered 1 whisky and waiter came with 2 whiskeys
After I ordered 2 drink directly from the manager, to avoid problems. The manager came back with one whisky and charged me for 2.
The restaurant wasn’t that busy, and for the amount people working they should be easily be able to manage and offer an incredible service.
The manager is not capable and quite useless. Even as waiter. Than the team follow.
Thanks for a nightmare valentine.
I would recommend to go there once, but I wouldn’t go there again myself. Paying this price and not having a real Michelin star feeling is the reason for me. Tables close to each other and not having a warm welcome by some arrogant girl. The service in the restaurant was great and the ambiance was amazing. Overall a okay experience
Everthing was great! Food was delicious! If you go to Amsterdam, you must go to Duchess
Excellent food and a very nice room. Unfortunately there are many guests that display the current custom of shabby clothes., and or are constantly monitoring their smartphone
Echt een aanrader voor wie houdt van ‘fijne keuken’, HEEL lekker, ontzettend mooi kader en hele vriendelijke bediening!!
Seriously overrated. Food definitely not worth it's money. Not good service and too much noise
Het eten is geweldig de smaken zijn bijzonder de bediening is vriendelijk en de atmosfeer in het restaurant is prettig. Ik wil nog opmerken de ontvangst bij binnenkomst is van een hoog niveau. Ben hier al vaker geweest en het restaurant heeft nog niets aan kracht verloren. Ook het concept van sharing is geweldig
Beautiful ambiente, very tasty food, Excellent service. Definitely recomend.
Hello, me and my husband went to celebrate our anniversary, this wasn't a good experience at all.
The service was slow, and a few times they forgot our order (lemon, ice, pepper atc.)
Some of the dishes had no taste (flat) and it was a big disappointment! Brisaula, octopus carpaccio and even the oysters that were served with out lemon or spice were complete waist of money and time. For main course we had beef welington and lamb cutlet, they were nice.
At conclusion I can say that I don't understand why this restaurant has one Michelin star cause I would not have given her a fork!
The manager tried to make things better by giving us the wine on the house but it didn't help at all, we spend 350€ and didn't enjoy at all!
I had high expectations and it exceeded them. We ordered 15 dishes and shared family still and every one was great
Very poor service with lots of confusion among waitstaff.
I reserved a table at 22:00 and i had to wait till 22:30 so i could sit at the table
Nice place but too big to treat customers the way a 100€ p/p restaurant commands.
Personnel is competent and effective but they have to cope with a number of customers which is too big and furthermore in two shifts . The American way is not always the best , let’s keep restaurants to a human size with a human touch. Food is fine but not worth the price.
Unbelievable we loved it! Each item was tastier than the next. A real delicacy dinner ! Highly recommend. They even gave us a free dessert for our anniversary and were so accommodating with our allergies.
Fabulous Sole. Fabulous service. Started were fascinating! Beets were great. Pumpkin ceviche,eggplant? Yup! Worked.
Waiter was a salesman, expensive fish served cold overall we paid a lot and ate much less.
It was delicious. The labor in each plate was apparent and everything was delicious. The candy explosion is a must for desert!
Wonderful service and great food. Our host gave perfect recommendations and was so sweet. The food was perfect. Don’t waste your time on the chocolate... the rest of the desserts are amazing
Birthday. Delicious food. Great anbience
I dined at THE DUCHESS on a Sunday night. This was my second time at the restaurant - the first time was on a busy evening 2.5 years ago. My recent experience was night and day different from the first time. The short rib pasta was incredibly salty, the ambiance was boring, and the service was super slow. We were comped a dessert because of the pasta, which was certainly nice of the staff. I’m hoping that it was due to it being Sunday, but truly a disappointing experience.
Super restaurant, les plats sont vraiment vraiment bon, les cocktails parfaits, rien à reprocher, pas une seule faute de leur part. Au top
Incredibly beautiful food, great wines, and personal'international'service. The Duchess never fails to impress and guarantees a fantastic evening out.
We had a great experience last year so we decided to come back again. What a great decision that was. Everything was just marvellous. Food was out of this world. Service was ... well I can just say Lola made everything even more special with her beautiful smile. Thank you very much for an unforgettable evening guys. I will be back each time I visit Amsterdam. Hope to see you very soon.
One of the best dining experiences ever. Nothing was overlooked and the food was incredible.
Hadn’t been back in over 18 months and wasn’t disappointed. 11/10 for everything
Food was telling. Very good and very tasty. Service was impeccable. Ambiance levels I think dress nice in this place, very classy.
The food is very good. The ambience disgusting. Too low lights and too loud very bad music beats. It is impossible to enjoy the meal.
+ Decoration - awesome interior and the building itself is gorgeous.
+ Personnel - in general very friendly
- Value for money - for this price there are some much better options in Amsterdam!
- Food - in general very average.
Fantastic food and service. Super friendly and inviting. Highly recommended!
Everything was good but we were disappointed about the innovation of the food since it is Michelin star
Très bel endroit, nourriture excellente, service impeccable, addition un peu élevée mais comme tout était parfait, ça passe !
Food & Service was great. Fantastic place. In my opinion however to expensive
