In the last 58 years I have eaten at least 63,510 times and our dinner last night at Bridges is quite likely the best meal I have ever had. To start with the service can always make or break a meal and from the moment...we walked in, we were treated like royalty (and not the local, Dutch royalty which it seems most people around here don’t care for, but like royalty everyone adore, you know, like Elvis. They offered a chef’s menu of either 7, 6 or 5 courses. We opted for the full 7-course meal and I am so glad we did. One of the highlights of the meal was most of the dishes came with a sauce that our server drizzled over the dish and then, to my ultimate delight, they left the extra sauce on the table! These sauces were so good my wife stated after the 3rd or 4th course, “They could bring us spam on a cracker next and I would ask ‘where’s the sauce’” I could go on about each course but suffice to say that each one was unique and delicious. Never before have I had a chef combine carpaccio and oysters but oh my, was it delicious. And don’t be scared by seven course. Each was a pretty small dish but combined it was all a very satisfying, but not overfilling, meal.More

Located inside one of most beautiful hotels of Amsterdam, Sofitel Legend the Grand, the restaurant has a lovely, elegant setting and offers excellent service, 5/7 courses chef menus and a la carte option. We picked the 7 course, to which a wine pairing can be...added, and it was a true tasting experience. The food is very creatively prepared, and ranges from fish to pigeon, tastes amazing, and having a dedicated wine for each course just rounds up a exquisite dinner experience. While more on the pricier side, will definitely return.More

Great staff and the food was just ok. The menu sounded intriguing so I ordered the chiefs sampler. This was six different dishes. Each one was served as a separate course. The portions were only a little more than a fork full. The food tasted...ok, but the niggardly portion were outrageous for such an expensive meal. I did not mind the wait between course because I was drinking Martinis. The martins were good, but also very skimpy on the pour. I have eaten at many high end restaurants all over the USA & Europe, this was bad. I came in hungry and left hungry.More

My girlfriend and I, enjoyed an amazing experience at bridges. We went for the menu du chef which was accompanied by some beautiful wines. All courses where beautiful serverd and within perfect time frame. As a big cheese lover I decided to add cheese before...the dessert. A wise decision if you ask me, as this was also a wonderful course. The service within the restaurant was also really convenient, they gave you enough space to enjoy your evening but were there for you if you needed them. Overall it was one of the best fine dining experience that I had in Amsterdam. Combine it with a overnight stay in one of the hotels suites of Sofitel Legend The Grand, you will thank me later. Au revoir!More

We were fortunate to be taken here by our son who lives in Amsterdam. He had promised us a fantastic evening and he wasn't wrong. From the moment we arrived, everything and everyone was fantastic. The staff took good care of us and the food...was amazing. We had the 7-course tasting menu. We've had tasting menus elsewhere and, although they've been good, there's usually at least one course that's just ok. Not here - every single course was amazing - delicious flavours and beautifully presented. Although everything was excellent, we all agreed the langoustine and the chocolate dessert were probably our favourite. We also had Dutch wine. We'd never associated wine with The Netherlands so we were keen to try it - it was excellent and we'd recommend trying it if you visit. A really memorable and special experience.More
