“Extremely pretentious, never again.”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The food was good but the service ruined it completely. The waiter kept interrupting and went the extra mile to make the good, yet not quite special food sound like it was retrieved from the behind of the queen of England. Although very few people were present during our stay, the chef insisted on making it a problem for us to choose a la carte, which immediately brought an uncomfortable atmosphere with it. It didn't feel like we were guests, but rather there to be schooled on the many 'rare' ingredients present in the food served infront of us.
Never again.

“Amazing food. Amazing service.”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Don't let the fact that Le Chant d'Oiseau is outside the city of Amsterdam in Amstelveen on an average suburban street deter you...make the effort to go and you won't be disappointed. It was a quiet midweek night and so we got the full attention of one of the partner owners. So full, that at times it was a bit overwhelming in the extent of his knowledge of the food, the wine, and the origins of it all. The food was amazing...from appetizer to dessert, both fish and meat...and the wine pairing chosen by our waiter/also the sommelier was perfect. You just gotta go! It will have a Michelin star before you know it.
