“Wish i'd tried the breakfast”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

i had read a review of this resturant in a newspaper as one of the places to eat and drink. so i emailed and made a reservatation. It has an excellent well stocked bar and a great look with the staff very attentive to my wishes. Although i did find the menu not to my taste with a few random choices. But what i did have to eat was definately worth going. Plus i enjoyed a very nice bottle of German wine which defo hit the spot. Very enjoyable. Looking at their breakfast menu i really wished i had tried it out, but i don't think i would be able to find the place again even with Sat-nav. Even the taxi driver struggled to find it, but that just seemed to make it all the more exclusive.

“friendly, accomodating and great food”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

I ate here twice, once on a previous trip and then again recently. I would highly recommend the food, the ambience, and the friendliness of the staff and their service.

“OMG, I've found a new hangout in Amsterdam!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

I took a coworker to my fav Amsterdam wine bar the other day, Bubbles & Wine located on the Nes street, known as the "theater district" in town. But don't have images of Times Square, this is a small and narrow old street hidden off the main roads but easy to find. After wine, my coworker took me to her fav place, The Lobby Bar which is located in the...lobby!..of the Hotel V

This is one of those RARE times that I can vote EXCELLENT for a restaurant!!

Inside the lobby we sat initially in the "library area" on a comfy couch and next to a fireplace which will be a killer to cozy up to this winter. But, there was an outside seating area set up on the terrace and it was too gorgeous of a day to sit indoors. Our waiter was Daniel, who was super cute and very friendly and took time to sit down and joke and laugh with us, despite being very busy. In fact, all the staff are very nice and welcoming! Off the food menu, I ordered a "Flammkuchen" which is somewhat like a pizza from Alsace, France...also known as Tarte Flambee because it's cooked in a wood fired oven, which the Lobby Bar has. ABSOLUTELY delicious, and only 10 euros! Fantastic service, great ambiance and good food...GEZELLIG!!

“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

The Lobby Restaurant at HotelV was one of the best dinners I had while visiting Amsterdam. Good food, moderately priced in a great setting made for a fun evening. Decor is nice, trendy setting in a new hip hotel. Put it on your list while visting Amsterdam.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

We came across this restaurant as it was close to our hotel. It is located in a nice square; the weather was good on that day and we sat outside although the decoration inside the restaurant seemed very good. We had a burger and a pizza, both nicely cooked. The service was ok but not extremely attentive. Overall a good experience.
