Imagine a posh restaurant, but not with the traditionally solemn, stiff waiters but friendly, enthusiastic waiters. Think of good food, full of taste, prepared with the highest craftmanship, knowledge of all the techniques available but also creativity, interesting combinations and a fascinating spectacle when they prepare a bloody mary on the spot with liquid nitrogen! It was a genuinely fantastic... More

This was my second visit to the Vermeer, and I had high expectations. We were well received, enjoyed a good, dry martini before the meal, then ordered the seven course set meny and a wine package. So far, so good. Something happened about half way through the meal. Even though the restaurant was not full, the tempo slowed down significantly,... More

I have visited the restaurant previous. That was a very nice experience. On every point of state. This time it was disapointing. Most of all because we had to wait for our food a long time after we was served the vine witch was ment to accompany the dishes. It seem like the kitchen didn`t manage to follow up. The... More

This was one of the best meals out ever. The staff were gracious and helpful, the dining room itself was fresh, airy and spacious and the food was sublime. I had already indicated that my wife cannot eat salt or onions but the staff had taken this on board and the chef prepared her red mullet individually and it was... More

As other reviewers have mentioned, dining at Restaurant Vermeer is an unforgettable experience. We made a reservation for dinner, and decided to try the 7-course meal (without wine pairing). The kitchen was able to cater to limited dietary restrictions (replacing some fish dishes with vegetarian ones). There were multiple starters, all as delicious as the next. The staff were attentive... More

Really one of the best meals I've had in ages, with excellent wine pairings. We took the full menu though and I must say it was just a testament to how good the food was that I could manage the main course and desserts, it was a lot of food! Highlight of the evening , an olive oil ice cream... More

Restaurant Vermeer was one of our highlights of Amsterdam. The friendly staffmade this 4 hour 8 course meal seem short. The starters by the fireplace were delicious but the outstanding frozen bloody mary was the best cocktail I have ever had. The staff did a great job of catering to our many food allergies while serving food worthy of a... More

The ambiance makes you comfortable which is not often the case of expensive dining places (yes you have to remember that Michelin star). The food is well thought through. Small tasting dishes complimenting main course, starter, and desert are very inventive. Monkfish as an entree was cooked to perfection texture wise but a bit bland taste wise despite accompanying flavorful... More

Overall disappointing, and not just because I was looking forward to dining in a Michelin star restaurant. Our food was average in quality and we had to ask three times to have our wine glasses refilled. It seemed that whomever we asked simply walked away to tell the wine steward, who never came. Perhaps they consider their pecking order more... More

I am very pleased to offer my review of Vermeer. I am on my eight Eurail adventure through Europe over the past four years--totaling 165 days or so. One would think that I would have visited more places than I have. But a Eurail pass gives you the freedom to go anywhere, and I have a tendency to return to... More
