From start to finish, a HUGE disappointment. Ambiance was sterile, service was pretentious, food was average and the bill was astronomical. We have been in absolutely wonderful restaurants in Amsterdam with phenomenal food, atmosphere, service and value. This was MOST DEFINITELY not one of them. The whole experience was incredibly depressing as we knew what we were missing out on... More

Came here for my birthday and what a treat...absolutely elegant and attentive service. The food was incredible and I would love to return, hopefully it will be around for years because my wife and I regularly reminisce about this restaurant.

Our son booked the chef's table at the Vermeer for our 40th wedding anniversary and I can truthfully say that after 15 courses and 10 pairings of wine that this was the best meal experience we have ever had. We didn't know what to expect and when we were taken through the dining room directly to a counter in the... More

The wine pairings werre spectacular, the tasting menu and the multiple courses with extra pre and post courses were exceptionally well prepared. the sommelier was exceptionally good and knowledgable. I would say they do exceptionally well at integrating foams, purees with exceptionally well prepared vegetables... More

We were seated at our table a little before 8pm, we were immediately served a bit of quite nice bread followed at quite long and irregular intervals by three pretty average amuse bouche. The menu only arrived after the second amuse bouche, and we had to request the wine list, but were then completely ignored by the sommelier. At 9:00pm... More

This restaurant cooks up a truly delicious culinary storm. The food is a delight for the senses and the very knowledgeable staff combine professionalism with a warmly welcoming manner. We honestly cannnot sing their praises highly enough. We had a wonderful dinner there and hope to return at some point. Go if you get the opportunity.

This was indeed a wonderful dining experience. The evening began with various different started. Each one as interesting as the next. I had the lobster for entre and chicken for main. Both was cooked to perfection. Then depending on which desert you ordered a pre desert will accompany that. This was then followed by some pretty amazing petite fours. Absolutely... More

Last August, I visited Vermeer as a solo diner and enjoyed a seven course tasting menu. While I was there, the chef mentioned his kitchen table. I immediately made reservation for my wife and I over the King's day weekend. We had a new seven course menu, plus, as I recall, five amuses beforehand. Again, all with wine parings. Eating... More
