Like other reviews already said- it is a great place to go to!
The service, food and atmosphere is so complete.
I really like the size of the Vlaming Restaurant only about 8 tables.
It is such a family and friends place that you feel so welcome and well taken care of.
And the ``Sticky Toffe pie`` is really a sin but sooooo yummy!!!
The prices is considering the quality reasonable.
Thanks for a perfect evening!

Dear visitor from München, I'm glad that you experienced what we want to achieve: guests who feel as if they come to our living room and are with friends. And indeed we have only limited space, therefor we advice people to make a booking in front. The Sticky Toffee Pie you mention is a "hit" since we have it on the menu: now already for more than 6 years!! We serve it in both of our places. Thank you for taking time to write this friendly review and best regards, Frans Vlaming

we went there during our stay in Amsterdam and we had the pumpkin soup, the fish salad,the beef steak with mushroom sauce and the tuna. Everything was really delicious. The only "wrong" think that I can find was the homemade limoncello, for italians was mostly an alcoolic granita, but the taste was good and anyway we decided to order it...Hardly recommended.

Dear guest from beautiful Parma (my wife went already 3 times to your city!!), thank you for your kind review. Maybe next time you come to us you can bring us a bottle of your own favourite Limoncello :-) Best regards, Frans Vlaming

What a lovely little place, everything was just perfect! Fantastic finale to our date yesterday in the Jordaan area, my husband and I ordered the steak and the classic dessert everyone's here been raving about "the Sticky Toffee pie" and they exceeded our expectation. Atmosphere-wise, just the kind of place we like, cozy and unpretentious, reflected on the food presentation, the people and the interior. we'll surely come back!

Warm welcoming staff, short menu but complete. We took a tasting entries with different plates and fish as main dishes.
Everything was very well cocked, wine was fine.
The waiter didn't show me the bottle that he brought already opened!!
The dessert was too sweet.

Dear visitor, if you had our "world famous" (in Amsterdam anyway) Sticky Toffee Pie as a dessert than indeed it can happen that someone finds it quite sweet :-)
I'll instruct the staff again how they have to present a bottle of wine: thank you for your remark. I'm glad that this however had no influence on your rating and you put as a header "Perfect"!! Thank you for taking time to write this kind review. Best regards, Frans Vlaming

Our first dinner in Amsterdam, so glad we found Vlaming eten & drinken. The hot, thick tomato soup was just what I needed in my belly after the cool night air, my steak was tender and perfectly cooked. The hostess/bartender/waitress was very warm and friendly and amazed us both as she singlehandedly greeted guests, took orders, tended bar, served most of the meals and chatted with guests. A wonderful evening, with great food and warm hospitality!

Dear guest from Singapore, thank you for this kind review. And also thank you for underlining the quality of our staff: the girls (ànd boys) like what they're doing and that shows!! I hope you enjoyed also the other days you were in our wonderful Amsterdam. Best regards, Frans Vlaming
