Great food, great time, great staff! Get the mixed grill. You'll leave full and happy!

Dear guest, of course I'm glad that you think we serve the best steak of Europe, but that's not what we pretend ourselves. Our Black Angus steak indeed is great and good quality for the price we charge, but for some more money there're better steaks available in Amsterdam I suppose. It's however the whole atmosphere why our visitors like... More

Dined here 25th March and although slightly off the beaten track it is well worth the extra effort. We both thought the food outstanding and the service friendly and efficient, I would not hesitate in recommending to anyone and it deservedly has a fine reputation. Tried the home made limoncello, it was sublime!

Frans1951, Owner at former restaurant Vlaming, responded to this review

Dear guest from Aberdeen, indeed our brasserie is located at the edge of the centre, almost Jordaan and not far from the Anne Frank house. The homemade Limoncello you mention is made from organic Sicilian lemons: also one of my favorites!! Thanks for taking time to write this kind review!! Best regards, Frans Vlaming More

We went to Vlaming on the third day of our long week-end in Amsterdam: the other two days we experienced some of the most rated restaurants in this beatiful town with a very poor impression. Vlaming was a pleasant surprise: small restaurant with a friendly atmosphere, not loud even on saturdy night,accurate service and,first of all, excellent food. The regular... More

Dear guest from Napoli, I must say that last Saturday night we were more than fully booked so maybe everybody was concentrating on their dishes and therefor it was not so loud :-)) You're right, all soups, sauces, fries. etc are made fresh every day.

I booked the restaurant for our group of ten in advance by email which was easy and replied to promptly.

Dear visitor, you're right: last Sunday we didn't expect it would be so busy, but when your group arrived the restaurant was completly full. Fortunately I was in our bistro, not far from the brasserie, and could come over to help. Hopefully most of the stress was gone after that and you enjoyed your stay with us. End of January... More

Dear visitor, thank you for taking time to write a review. Concerning the "frozen" fries I have to say that we make these ourselves fresh every day, so I don't understand what might have gone wrong with your portion.

Hubby and I chose to visit here after reading reviews on trip advisor and prebooked a table whilst still in England. Pros: we had a shared starter for two.

Dear guest from England, thank you for your constructive criticism.

We write these for that matter on the mirror in English & Dutch. I hope you... More

After reading mainly top reviews of this restaurant, my expectations were high for my first visit to Brasserie Vlaming - unfortunately, my high expectations were not completely met.
