“Wonderful food and service”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We choose this restaurant because of the positive reviews on here and made a reservation in advance. We took advantage of the special offer two courses, buy one get one free and this was excellent value for the quality and quantity of food we were served up, mushroom risotto, inside out beef wellington, absolutely delicious, as was the bottle of house red.
As with a lot of establishments in Amsterdam the restaurant is not large and we were glad we had a reservation as the place soon filled up even though it was a Sunday night. Highly recommend.

Dear Loobie,

Thanks for taking the time to post a review here for other TripAdvisors to read!

Yes we do have our Early Bird offer still available, however those seats must be booked on the internet in advance. Our prices are already quite reasonable, but for those early diners we do offer a little more incentive.

We have changed our menu since you last visited as Spring seems to be in the forecast now!

We do hope to see you again and thanks once more for the review!

Blaine

“Amazing”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This little restaurant is not only charming and with great, warm service, but also - and probably most importantly - serves really amazing food! Everything was fresh and fragrant, the plates were composed beautifully, everything looked ans tasted wonderful. I will most definitely come back for more.

“excellent restaurant”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We first visited Seasons 3 years ago, and were keen to see if it was as good as we remember. The good news is the food is just as good, if not even better than we recall. The restaurant is small, so a reservation might be a good idea, the welcome was warm, we were seated quickly, coats removed and hung up for us. The waitress explained the menu, she was friendly while still being professional, which we like.
There's a set 2 or 3 course menu, but plenty of choice so there's bound to be something that takes your fancy. The 2 course dinner is 27.50 euros so more than reasonable for food of this quality in the centre of Amsterdam.
My main was the surf and turf, a portion of Seasons' fire shrimp coupled with an inside out beef wellington, the photo I have posted doesn't do it justice. My wife chose the shrimp with avocado and orange salad, and like me, was very pleased with her selection. Desserts were of equal quality although the banana and chocolate fritters could have done with a touch more chocolate, of course that might not be to everyones tastes and in fairness the plate was still licked clean (not literally).
Already looking forward to returning on our next visit to Amsterdam. It's just a shame they don't open for lunch!
To the lady who I briefly spoke to at The Convent Hotel I hope you and your daughter enjoyed your meal.

Dear Tajandmark,

Thanks so much for your 2nd review here on TripAdvisor!

While TripAdvisor comments mean a lot to us, more important to us is to see returning guests and those recommended to us by their friends who have visited, really enjoying their time.

I did look at your last review prior to this one and see that actually our prices have not changed much in three years! That is a good thing...we want to offer guests a nice night out with good food and an environment with out feeling they just got "ripped Off". We do offer an extensive menu and there is bound to be something on the menu for everyone!

Yes we are small, but by Amsterdam standards we are about the "normal" size. Reservatins are highly recommended!

We hope you get back to our Great City soon and also drop by for another dinner ( sorry Lunch just is not on the program for now)

Kind regards

Blaine

“Caring owner puts love into craft”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Seasons was a fantastic culinary treat for my friend and I. From the winter-themed pumpkin and coconut soup (thoughtfully retained on the menu when the spring weather stayed on the cold side in April!) to the phyllo-puff creation with mushrooms, our meal was a delight. The service was personal and warm, and you could hear the delight in other diner's voices as they marveled at their selections.

A small restaurant, as most in the city are, you'll find yourself crowded in, but the food makes it worth it. Save room for dessert, and savor the experience!

Dear Qlever,

Sometimes when one feels so tired and ready to give up.... an Angel shows up! Your review was just that!

I had been sick for a few days and struggling to get a menu made. Your title made me remember why we do what we do.....put love into our craft!

So glad that you enjoyed your time and we really hope you make it back again soon!

Thanks

Blaine

Dear Pamela,

Thanks for posting a review here for other Trip Advisors to read.

We are glad to know that your evening was an enjoyable/ memorable evening with the extra touch for dessert. (Noemi, the waitress, has a way of overhearing things...)

It also sounds like you are a "local" which is also good to hear.. Often it it said that we cater to only to tourists, but that is not the case as you can prove. We will be changing our menu soon and hope to see you back again soon!

Kind regards,

Blaine
