Only 2 choices on the menu- steak or lobster (you can also get a combo). Dinner is served with unlimited fries and salad. Steak was cooked to perfection. Fries and salad were very good. Nice wine selection. I would recommend reservations as the restaurant is small and busy. Would eat here again without hesitation.

For a restaurant the only servers 2 dishes, the steak was pretty average. The service was also average at best. There are better choices that this restaurant for the money.

The menu is limited to steam and lobster BUT it's worth it. Small and cozy, great food, great wine. Plan ahead, you'll probably need a reservation.

Arrived at the restaurant at 6 pm and was told that we had to vacate by 7 pm for someone with a reservation. Not a problem. The Tournedos was excellent! Service very good. As stated before the bread is 1,50 euro pp. The "original" water was 2,50 person. My draft beer was 2.50. The value for the money (no matter... More

We were visiting Amsterdam for my birthday, and as a treat my boyfriend had booked dinner at this restaurant. We lost track of time having a drink at a nearby bar so called ahead to warn we would be late. The service from then was brilliant. Faultless. The waitress/manageress was extremely understanding. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted and... More

This restaurant was on our hotel's recommended list, excellent location, in fact we had been walking past it for years on our visits without ever realizing that it was a uniquely Lobster & Steak place. So, intrigued by the concept we asked the hotel to reserve. The place was not very full and yet we got to sit near the... More

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. Not a bad recommendation but not a brilliant one either. It's a simple concept, steak and lobster and yet somehow they made it overly complicated. The waitress never wrote down our order and yet several times she managed to get it wrong. You can either have the lobster as a... More

I ate at Red, Amsterdam with my husband and 2 children (aged 16 and 21) earlier this month on the recommendation of a work colleague and we were not disappointed. If you don't like steak or lobster, don't go but if you do then make sure you book ahead and prepare to be delighted by the quality of food on... More

Rarely does one rejoice at having so little choice on the menu. Here, however, at this cool, elegant restaurant on Keisergracht, it is the whole point. You either have fillet steak, or lobster, or both. We had the steak, having thought long and hard about having both [surf and turf at its most elegant]. The substantial steak arrived with super...
