My boyfriend wanted to give me a special treatment and he decided to reserve a table on line, he was already once there before. Yamazato was the first traditional Japanese restaurant in Europe with a Michelin star. The kitchen brigade only speaks Japanese. We order the special October menu from the Chef and I did not realized that there were... More

Just the best Japanese restaurant in Amsterdam. If you like sushi, shabu-shabu or Wagyu beef, this is the place to go. A large selection of Sake. Definitely a bit formal and a setting for a long exquisite dinner to celebrate, not a quick and informal restaurant.

My husband made a reservation for my birthday. He asked for a table near the window with view and we were given this. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had sushi and sashimi with miso soup. It was good, tasteful and the plates were nicely decorated. The waitress asked if we would like an aperitif so I order one,... More

In the past, if you wanted high quality Japanese food and dining, this was the place to be. Regrettably, I found that, compared to their own past levels and to the level and quality other restaurants (Japanese and otherwise) in Amsterdam now offer and at lower prices, Yamazoto is way past its prime. Although the food is still good, I... More

I have dined in several restaurants across the world and had high expectations coming to the place. The ambience is very good, service is very attentive, so far so good. The issue is the food. The ingredients are of very high quality, no question. What I lacked was the flavour profiles and the innovation in displaying the dishes but still... More

This very highly recommended restaurant is disappointing. The sushi is bland and unimaginative, and, as such, the raving is curious. Certainly, no sushi should be anything but fresh and they "accomplished" that. However, that is where this very high priced restaurant positives stopped. On a preferential note, the women wear the traditional obi, which, in 2014, is a bit unsettling... More

Food is nice, compared to the competition. Service is also good. I like the restaurant but they close too early. I find this wrong as you spend quite a lot of money it would be nice to be able to continue ordering.

It's better to visit, than to write about this place. We liked very much! Not the first, but you must visite! Take a season menu/offer.
