“Outstanding Xmas Eve Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We were looking forward to our dinner at Bistrot Neuf, and we weren't disappointed. So we could enjoy a broad sampling, we shared everything - foie gras, ravioli with mushrooms and an incredible sauce, and the meringue flambé with Grand Marnier. The evening was made perfect by the professionalism and knowledge of our beautiful waitress, whose name I regretfully neglected to get. There's always a next time!

“Dinner for two.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

My boyfriend took me to this resteraunt for dinner this new years day. Upon arrival we were given a wine list and ignore for twenty minutes. Took our drinks order, exuberantly talking about the wine with my fella. Eventually half an hour or so into our arrival got menus. The food was fantastic, delicious, was very impressed. However on two occasions asked for bread 2 courses later, 2 requests and a final request from my boyfriend we got the bread... The food was great, the wine delicious but the service let this establishment down, she was pleasant but just useless. She took my plate for my starter away as I was still drinking my lobster bisque. Training for staff most certainly required.

“Christmas Dinner 2013”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We did a lot of research into eating in Amsterdam on Christmas Day and we were pleased with our choice of Bistro Neuf when we received the Christmas day menu. We were impressed with the service and the knowledge of the waitress regarding the wines. The starters were good and the wines were good. I had partridge as a main meal which, was at best average: It lacked taste associated with a game bird. My partner had Beef Wellington. She returned her meal because it was very salty. Her replacement meal was slightly less salty but certainly not value for money. We asked for the bill and left the restaurant very disappointed. The fact that the restaurant advertises that they are in the Michelin Guide 2014 is very disappointing. We would have stayed for a dessert and coffee/brandy but felt we would be throwing good money after bad!

“A charming place with great style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

A wonderful find for Christmas dinner 2 (gotta love the Dutch for celebrating twice!). We enjoyed a lovely, unhurried meal again choosing to share and savor a few things- beef wellington, sautéd brill, carpaccio and ended with a simple yet perfect fondant cake. Service was unhurried but attentive, the wine list is efficient and amazingly well priced, and the food quality quite good. Noise levels became a bit much as the evening wore on, but the energy is there. A strong recco.

“Good Wine List, Mediocre Otherwise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

We went here because someone told us it had a great wine list…and they were right. Our Gigondas was as good as they get. But the food was overpriced (we had the artichoke salad, soup of the day, ravioli, fletan and chocolate cake), and the service was mediocre. In fact, getting the check so we could leave took forever.
