I recently chose this place as the venue for a 60th birthday celebration. The menu is short and to the point: you chose either lobster or steak, or both. Our experience there was perfect from start to finish: service was friendly and highly competetent, the food was served rather fast, and all dishes were perfect. The lobster was mouthwatering (I...

My wife and I recently visited Amsterdam to celebrate her 50th Birthday and whilst we were there I wanted to take her out for a special meal. I researched restaurants and found that Red had good reviews, therefore I emailed a request for a reservation before leaving the U.K. and received a prompt reply confirming the booking. The service was... More

Upon setting foot in Red I had to ensure I was in fact at the right place as everything about the restaurant is a vivid green. Barring that, the plated harmonization of sea creature and land mammal is to die for! If you have a hankering for steak and lobster then this is the place to go...hands down!

They sell only steak and lobster (with the possibility of caviar as an extra). And only 1 type of steak and 1 type of lobster. - With delicious sauces and lovely chips/small salad. Prices are excellent. Quality is superb. Place is very busy and deserves to be... lovely environment as well... No need to dress up; dinner takes 90 minutes... More

This is only a steak and lobster fare. One would think they would have it down to a perfection. The steak was great but lobster had a lot to be desired! It was mushy and overcooked. There are no substitutions and salad and fries are your only choices and the staff makes sure you know that. The water is overpriced.... More

Delicious lobster and steak, excellent service and a gorgeous setting. One of the best meals I've had in Amsterdam. RED is on our regular visits list and is always consistent. and it is definitely one I recommend to friends/family/colleagues.

This is a lovely restaurant for a romantic meal. It is quite small, this makes it feel so cozy. The staff are friendly and helpful. They only serve steak & lobster so if you're after anything else go somewhere else. You can have the lobster cold with mayo or warm with melted butter & herbs ( this is how we... More

These are the only two items on the menu, both simply but perfectly cooked and served. Having booked ahead we were lucky enough to get a window seat looking out over the Kaisersgracht.
