Description: Inspired by the tradition of quintessential American steakhouses, Midtown Grill serves up the finest USDA certified steaks. The emphasis is on pureness, fresh ingredients and quality. The culinary-savvy servers will happily engage in conversation about the intricacies of great beef, and steak aficionados can indulge in the signature 1.6 kilo T-bone that is sea salted and grilled to a juicy succulence; a great dish to share with friends. All dishes are classics, and inspired by the kitchens of first-class steakhouses in New York. The menu is complemented with an extensive collection of international wines from renowned vineyards, that match perfectly the dishes on the menu. The restaurant has a warm American ambience, and has a fantastic view of the vibrant part of Amsterdam, between the Vondelpark and the Leidseplein. All senses are stimulated by the vibrant ambience, as well as the open show kitchen and irresistible dishes. After dinner, share your enthusiasm for great cigars and cognacs in the private Midtown Cigar Lounge. Midtown Grill has it all; great steaks, warm ambiance and personal service. See you at Midtown!

“Loved the steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

We booked here after a quick google search of the best steaks in Amsterdam, it did not disappoint.

The giant menus, the explanation of different types of steaks and the little toasted marshmallows at the end made the experience, the staff were also lovely.

They split our steaks to share (which was a great touch) and everything came out fresh and fantastic. It was presented great and we walked away feeling very satisfied.

Overall - great restaurant and we would recommend it to anyone!

“Nothing To Write Home About”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We went to this place after we googled for the best recommended steak house. The only positive feedback goes to the actual product and the friendly staff, as for the rest, its a typical hotel restaurant.
We never got the steak butter they say they serve their meat with, and the hand cut fries where normal frozen fries. We had oysters and the scallops to start, oysters were good, the scallops were good but tiny and they only serve 2. For main we had the aged ribeye and the rib on the bone, both were good.
There are plenty of steak houses here in Amsterdam, so I suggest you go try another not this one.

“Top steaks, top prices, but will be back !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Situated on the ground floor of the Marriott Hotel this restaurant is possibly one of the best steak restuarants around, think Gauchos and you;re getting close.
The choice is amazing, the waiters take you through all the possibilities of meat, cooking, sides, wines etc...then the steak arrives !..much pleasure.
Prices are quite high but considering you are in a city centre, hotel-based, establishment then its worth it ! Don't have starters as you will never finish your steak !

“Possibly the best steak I have ever eaten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

The only thing "wrong" with this restaurant is its name: it sounds like some run-down cheap grillroom. Instead it is probably one of the most luxurious places to eat a steak in Amsterdam. It is all about great quality meat, with matching quality vegetables, and desserts.

If you are looking for the best meat available in Amsterdam, or possibly anywhere, look no further.

Hallo Niels,

Thanks for your wonderful feedback, however I do not know how to take the run down cheap grill room part (hahaha), It is great to have given you a wonderful experience and that you love the quality of meat we serve.

See you soon,

“Wonderful Meal for Steak Lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Me and my partner went to the Midtown Grill after visiting the same restaurant in Berlin last year. We have nothing but praise for all elements of our meal, from first class service to absolutely amazing steaks.

We ordered the two Dutch pieces of meat, the Sirlion and Fillet and had them served on a sharing griddle in the middle of table. The sides were also brilliant as well and our meals were washed down nicely with some lovely red wine.

To top the meal of when we asked for the bill we were given marshmallows to toast which was a lovely touch.

Thank you to all the staff and the chefs for a lovely meal. We will certainly be recommending here to colleagues and friends if they are visiting Amsterdam in the future.
