“Best restaurant in Amsterdam by far”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Wow, went here for our 5th wedding anniversary and could not have chosen a better place to eat. I did feel a little out of my depth as we walked in but we were soon put at ease by the professional staff who were very informative, meal was accompanied by a great choice of wines. The only downside was the price but hey we are worth spoiling every now and again.

“Not very special at all”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

If I describe the food at la rive I say it's not quite unique. The chef made a few simple blunders at our food. I had a lot more expected due to the high position on TA. Doubt of this restaurant is worth the star. The price is a bit high.

“Great food, great service, great room, great view”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

What's not to like? Imaginative cooking that doesn't "torture" food; a very good wine list with good inexpensive bottles along with the great ones, a very knowledgeable staff that really wants you to have a good time, and a beautiful room with a beautiful view.
Best "blowout" meal in town.

“Perfect food, perfect service”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We tried a tasting menu (wagyu version) and could not be more pleased. The food was delicious and interesting. I feared such a posh place would feel stiff but thanks to the amazing and knowledgeable stuff we had so much fun. The food was great but there are many places where you find delicious food but the service was so good that the whole evening was an unforgettable experience. Best service in Amsterdam.
