“Great setting for a group gathers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

We had an excellent time during a farewell party for a colleague. The setting was perfect and the dishes were all just delicious. The preparation and communication before the event was extremely prompt and responsive. The staff attending to our area were outstanding, graceful and present but unobtrusive. It is just thrilling to see 5&33 setting an example of what truly excellent service should be in a city that has a lot to learn in this area.

“Terrific service, tasty drinks, average but fine food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

I have quickly become a regular here because of how they run their restaurant/bar. After two visits, the staff remembered my drink preferences, and they always try to accommodate me in the event I wasn't able to make a reservation. The exhibitions they have downstairs are a nice touch and make it a great place for dates, as you have a conversation starter built into the evening. Food is nothing special, I've had almost everything and would suggest the ox cheeks or chicken and chips above all, but the atmosphere and tasty drinks make up for the average food. As an Amsterdam local, I can tell you that finding a place with friendly staff is almost impossible, which is why this hotel bar has become my favorite!

“Chic, quiet, with an almost Zen-like serenity.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Chic, quiet, with an almost Zen-like serenity. Dimmed light and soft listening music on the background.
One can sit in a lounge aside the fire or at tables.
The staff is well trained, kind and hospitable.
The formula is sharing dishes.
We enjoyed the Burrata with Mozzarella heritage tomatoes & basil, Sea Bass ravioli and Zucchini fritti, followed by an excellent coffee.
It was an enjoyable stay!
