“We stumbled upon this gem!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We visited Seasons Restaurant in February. Since we didn't have reservations anywhere we decided just to try to stop in after a long day of sightseeing. We were surprised that we randomly found such a great restaurant! For starters we had the scallops and eggplant with sundried tomato both of which were quite tasty. I had the beef wellington and I think my husband had some type of duck entrée. For dessert we had crème brulee and chocolate pudding custard which was amazing! Another highlight of our meal was getting to meet the owner's pup! Such a cute dog! It is a quaint and cozy restaurant! Perfect for couples and anyone else looking for a good meal with great service!

Dear JandN2012,

Thanks for taking the time to post a review here to TripAdvisor.

Yes once in a awhile it is possible to stumble into a good restaurant. Since you have been with us we have changed the menu to more Spring Items....though I am not sure that winter dishes would still not be appropriate.

Roxy sometimes could be a highlight of the meal or as some people have posted not appreciated. But unfortunately she is now sitting at a table on the other side of the rainbow....but I can speak for her saying..."Thanks for all the tidbits"!

Kind regards,

Blaine

“A little disappointing”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

After reading and hearing the strong recommendations, we were a little disappointed: very cramped and the food no better than average

While normally we say thanks for comments here on Trip Advisor not much to say for your comment. No details really given.

It is small restaurant as noted in other guests comments, but the food I think is much better than average and it seems many other Trip Advisors would agree with me.

“Excellent”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This was our best meal while in Amsterdam. It is a small place, and the service was a little slow, but the food was amazing. Reservations are highly suggested.

Dear jwfla,

Thanks for taking the time to post a review here on Trip Advisor for other travellers to see.

We are glad you enjoyed your meal. Sounds like you were here on a very busy evening, by the way you mention slow service and small place.

But also you pointed out ... "food was amazing". I should make the point here that all of our ingredients are fresh and cooked to order. When you sit with a full restaurant, a large menu and fresh ingredients cooked to order...slow can happen. While it might happen sometimes, we would not want to change our formula for offering good seasonal dishes.

and yes.....reservations a great idea.

Kind regards

Blaine

“Good food, very laid back restaurant”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Not fussy or formal in decor, this restaurant saves all the bells & whistles for the food. The food is fresh and good (though my pea and fava bean salad oddly had no fava beans), the portions ample, and the prices not unreasonable for Amsterdam. Very friendly and easy service. A good find.

Dear JHL55,

Thanks so much for your review here on Trip Advisor.

You give a very good review of the place and what we have to offer. I also want to say thanks for the note about the Fava Beans....I have followed up to make sure that we get the dish right. There is no excuse for that.

We hope you get a chance to come back and see us again in the future.

Kind regards

Blaine
