“Warm and delicious dinner on a cold night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We were visiting Amsterdam for the first time and we were directed to Seasons by our hotel concierge. The on line reviews and menu looked great so we decided to give it a try. Sunday night on a cold January weekend tends to be fairly quiet so we had some extra TLC from the wait staff which was really enjoyable. The meal was fantastic! The duck and citrus salad was prepared beautifully and the scallops three ways was as good as other reviewers described.

Dear Cycle2eat,

Thanks for your kind words here on TripAdvisor for others to read.

You are correct about January, the evenings can be fairly quiet, but glad to hear that there was a little extra TLC for the evening. I have to admit the menu is slightly different on line than we offer, not much but there are some differences we hope to iron out this week.

Again thanks for your kind words and hope you have a great adventure as you travel further.

Kind regards

Blaine

“Such a lucky find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We had hoped to eat next door, but luckily it was booked up and we found you. The whole experience from start to finish was wonderful! We both chose the inside out beef Wellington surf and turf and it was cooked perfectly and presented beautifully, followed by the cheese board which was delicious. The staff were very conscientious and this is one of the nicest restaurants with the best quality food and service! Thank you, what a lovely evening we had. This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere easy going but sophisticated at the same time. Hard to get this balance right but this place is just perfect!

Dear Sallyb520,

Lucky for you, and us, that next door was booked and that your "whole experience from start to finish was wonderful!"

You had some of our traditional dishes, which we often think about changing but as you mentioned .."cooked perfectly and presented beautifully," why should we change them.

Again thanks for your kind words and we will pass them on to the staff.

Kind regards,

Blaine

“Don't miss 2 for 1 Early-Bird Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Booked last eve for meal before 7pm, 2 for 1 for 2 courses. We chose appetizer Crab Cakes, heavenly! generous 2 pieces with a creme fraise and herb/dill sauce plus a pot of fruit chutney. also nice olives and bread served immediately. Main: I got Shrimp Scampi over noodles, my friend the Curry Chicken, both delicious! with wine and bottled water, this wonderful meal cost only €40 before tip. Plus the atmosphere is so cozy, and the wait staff is attentive but not overbearing. Do NOT miss this gem in one of the best locations in Amsterdam, just 10 min. walk from Dam Square or maybe 15 min. from Central Station.

Dear MaryBeth,

Thanks for your kind words so soon after your visit last Saturday.

The Early-Bird Special is a very good deal, especially after the holidays. It is from 17:00 - 18:00 on Monday - Thursday an 16:00 - 18:00 on Friday - Sunday. Reservations should be made on line.

The Shrimp over Noodles is a new dish in our menu and does get good reviews from guests. You compliment about the staff not attentive and not overbearing is also good to hear and we will pass on this comment.

Again thanks for the review and we do hope that you can make it back soon to see us again.

Kind regards

Blaine

“Fantastic New Year's Day Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

We chose Seasons from the reviews on Tripadvisor and had the best meal of our vacation in Europe. Each of our meals was fantastic, but my appetizer was the most memorable course of the evening. I had perfectly ripened fresh figs stuffed with goat cheese drizzled with honey, which was a first for me, followed by fresh salmon, and my partner had the duck breast salad followed by the beef Wellington. The food and wine were superb and very reasonably priced (29 euro for two courses or 35 for three courses). We divided a dessert (4 mini desserts, actually) and each was worth the calories! I would definitely make a repeat visit to Seaons and recommend it highly.

Dear OKG,

Thanks so much for you kind review you posted here on TripAdvisor for other travelers to read.

Glad you enjoyed the figs, but we have to admit they were only for the New Year's period as they are not really in season at this time. ( Well of course somewhere everything can be in season!) But those other dishes duck, salmon and wellington are all part of our new Winter Menu which we started this week.

Such a compliment to hear one of the "best meal of our vacation In Europe" and we do hope that you can repeat a visit soon.

Kind regards

Blaine

“Great food , yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

Me and my boyfriend went here on Valentines night ! We were in Amsterdam for 3 nights and my sister recommended we eat here and so I booked in online before we went. We got a quick reply which was great. Once we got there I thought the place was jammed!! Tables for very close to each other and I could hears neighbours conversations which bothered me at the beginning . But once our order was taken and the food arrived I quickly changed my opinion of the place as the food was fantastic!! We both had the scallops , which were 3 different flavours !!! Yummy :) I will be recommending this restaurant to my friends

Dear Unaoconnor,

Thanks for your kinds words....and as they say "better late than never!"

I hope people do not think we asked for a Valentine's Day Promote hear, but again it is great to hear that someone recommended us to you and you walked away with great feeling.

Yes the tables and chairs can be close together, but such is the case with so many restaurants in Amsterdam.

We just changed the menu in the last few days, but you will be happy to hear that the scallops have remained on the menu, as they are so simple, yet so good!

Hope to see you again soon!

Kind regards

Blaine
