“Excellent!!!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

The owner hosted us when other restaurants turned us down at 9:30 pm. We sat outside on a beautiful summer night. Everything we ordered was delicious. Would definitely come back.

Dear Worldcitizen,

Thanks for your short and kind note below. Glad you enjoyed yourself, and was somewhat surprised to hear that other restaurants turned you away...sounds like a slow evening in the big City.

We do hope that you can make it back to see us again shortly.

All the best

Blaine

“Great, time and again!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

I've been to Seasons at least 5 times and each time have been impressed with the quality of the food and service. They change their menu with each new season so you can always find an interesting selection of items. This season (Summer 2014), I'd recommend the scallops 3 ways, mediterranean salad (with watermelon and feta!) chicken tikka masala, surf 'n' turf, summer pasta (vegetarian) and steak salad. Seasons is a sure bet for a nice dinner!

Dear American Burger!

Thanks for taking ugh time to post a review here for other travelers to read. Glad to hear that you had a good time with us. To be there five times means www must be doing something right.

Correct we change our menu with the season and the temperature. With warm days that we have now, just a good steak sounds right. If not the steak then why not make is a steak salad....cool and refreshing and the scallops...mouthwatering and not filling.

Thanks again for the comments...."Seasons is a sure bet for a nice dinner!".

“Enjoyable meal-service was moderate”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Nice restaurant, nice ambiance, good food, and it wasn't noisy. My only complaint was that when we wanted to split a dish they made a big deal about the E10 surcharge; and then when we wanted additional fruit (it was a warm night and we weren't that hungry) the server (who seemed to be about 15 years old) said no that couldn't be done. I said really? Then he went and asked and said we would be charged for it.....(did he think I was asking for free food?). So those two things could have been handled a little differently. I think our service went downhill when they saw we only ordered 3 salads and 1 entree. As I said, it was a very warm evening and it wasn't cool inside, so you don't want a heavy meal in weather like that.

Dear SZKlein,

Thanks for talking a moment to write a review here on TripAdivsor, though I am not sure you are actually a traveler in Amsterdam or living here...

We were not in town last week so we are not sure of all the details that you mention. We did see that someone was upset in our guest survey we conduct at the end of the meal, but did not have a email to contact you directly, to find out more details. As we always know there are two sides to the story.

We do charge for "shared plates" in our restaurant as indicated on the menu. Not sure if the big deal was with you or with the staff but that is our policy. As for fresh fruit, this is not always available in the restaurant and while perhaps the waiter (who is 19 and working for over 3 years with us) could have handled in better in your eyes, I understand why he asked the kitchen.

We at Seasons understand the need not to eat a 2/3 course menu during the summer months, and perhaps that is why we are probably the only restaurant who also offers a MIXED starter menu during the summer.

Again not sure what happened, perhaps it was the heat, but wanted to share with other travelers our side of the story.

Hope to see you again.

Kind regards

Blaine

“Great little restaurant!”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and was ranked quite high. After reading the reviews we decided to try it out and were not disappointed. This restaurant is located on a nice quiet street away from crowds. My wife and daughter both ordered Fresh Scallops..3 ways as an appetizer and they loved them! I had the Chicken Tikka Masala and my wife had the Grilled Steak Salad. Both were done very well. We also had the Crème Brulee for dessert and my daughter could have had two of them! Here's a tip...go to their website and check out their early bird special where you get two 2 course meals for the price of one (28 euros). The service was as good as the food. We would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Dear Joe W,

Thanks for taking a moment to post a review here for other travelers to read. Sounds like you and your family really had a good time. Enjoyed many of our popular summer dishes.

Thanks also for mentioning our Early Bird Special....it is a good deal, but then again our prices are pretty inline with other prices in Amsterdam. We feel even at reular prices we offer a good value for money experience.

Thanks again and we hope to see and/or your friends in the future.

Kind regards

Blaine

“Tasty with great service”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Considering the size this is a great little restaurant. Staff were lovely and the food very good. It was busy and we were all tucked in close but not too noisy.
Highlight for me was the 'scallops three ways'. Yummy. We had nicely cooked salmon and steak. Not overcooked.
A safe bet for an evening meal.

Dear WyseOwls,

Thanks for your kind review here on Trip Advisor for other guests to see.

Great to hear about good food, but even better to hear about Great Service. If we could just have more of that in Amsterdam.

It is a bit cramped but we try to give as much room as possible when possible.

We hope you make it back to see us again soon.

Kind regards

Blaine
