Lute is one of our favorite restaurants in the Amsterdam area and we were pleased that they participated in their own promotional Restaurant Week. It's a fine way to enjoy a fixed-price menu at more affordable prices. Our first course was a creation with smoked cod and red beets. The beef buffet was also delicious and prepared with perfection.

Last Saturday evening we visited the restaurant again (last visit was in February 2014). Very pleasant welcome. As we wanted to see the World Championship Football Game, we had our meal in the bar area where we could watch the game. The staff is always very accommodating and flexiible , so they had no problems with serving the whole dinner... More

When attending an office in Amsterdam my colleagues there recommended here. We opted to have one of their taster menus and the mix of presentation, flavours, textures and ingredients was amazing. Visit Lute not just for a meal but a true dining experience.

Tried Lute lunch on a Tuesday – a la carte as we thought there were some really nice dishes we wanted to try. We started with some amuses: a Dutch bitterbal on a mustard jelly, beetroot soup with piccalilli foam and a glazed tomato. The bitterbal was filled with delicious roux, quite different from a ‘fast food one’ and really... More

Dinner with a group of approx. 22 people celebrating Christmas; Arranging the evening and finalizing the choice of menu was a bit difficult, a light arrogant tone of the F & B manager who did not completely understand we were the customers. Food quality and service once in the restaurant were really very good.

Our large group had a tremendous dinner. While the menu was "set", you felt the meal from start to finish had been personally selected. The presentation was exceptional and each course was wonderfully prepared. The wines were well-chosen. The wait staff were professional and friendly. We will go again!

Was at an exhibition at RAI in Amsterdam and really wanted some fresh good food and guess what I got it at Lute. Good fast friendly service, my lunch was freshly prepared and delicious to eat, really enjoyed this little place and looking forward to going back on my next trip to Amsterdam.

Went to this place on the recommendation of business associates, the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable about the wine and each course. The food - a set tasting menu is the one we had - was absolutely fabulous. The blend of flavours in each course, the mixture of textures and colours complimented the flavours exceptionally well.

Off track, but spot on Lute is a bit far out from the amsterdam action, but the concept is great. It's a loft with space, a warm atmosphere (in winter), a pre / post dinner bar area and a dining area. Service is good, sequencing of the food right on, 3 course meal with all pre / post dining activities... More
