We had a very similar experience to Boot95. We were kept waiting for around half an hour before anyone took an order from us and we did not get our first drink until we had been there around 45 minutes. I was really thirsty and hungry too! One guy serving tables, making drinks and doing the blurb is not enough and a junior member of staff would have made all the difference. I do think that there should be a menu with the prices of drinks and, as some other people have said, the prices are a little exaggerated.
The food was very tasty. We go to lots of vegetarian restaurants and the food was original, healthy and delicious here but we are unlikely to return as the service made it a very frustrating experience.

Following the very good comments here on TA , I made a table reservation last weekend that was confirmed at once , but had to be reconfirmed two days before visit. I was a bit disappointed about the whole thing...the food was okay, but not more than avarage , the waiter / restaurant keeper more show man than a discret host; his clothing was dirty ( shirt and trouser!), a sauvignon blanc white wine 11,-€ per glass much too expensive for the quality, incoming guest at 9 PM were nor more served as " in Amsterdam one has dinner earlier than elsewhere", no outside area and seats, we will not come back ...

Second visit to this vegetarian fine dining establishment in Amsterdam (first in November 2010). The food is extremely well presented and flavoursome (it’s a set meal that changes every week so there is no menu). The owner takes time to explain the ingredients and brings around a number of oils and spices to add to the dishes. Meals are fairly substantial so we did not have any room for desert but they did look very good. Wine and coffee were also excellent. My only criticism is that there is no indication of the price of anything so you will need to ask (which could feel a bit embarrassing once you’ve been seated). It isn’t cheap so it’s a final splurge type of place to enjoy on your last day if you are visiting Amsterdam on holiday or for a special occasion if you live there (two courses with a bottle of house wine for two people plus one coffee was 100.50 Euros).
