Recently visited this place as part of a business trip and must say its well worth a visit, service if all a little slow its the sort of place you can relax and spend the evening. The food was found to be of a good standard and would certainly recommend a visit if you are in the area

Just in the middle of Amterdam's bussiness center, perfect place for making deals and having something quick to eat or drink.

Huge venue, a bit noisy and not very intimate. Service is not always up to speed, and dishes are just "OK".

We visited Dauphine 3 times in on our stay in Amsterdam! My partner and I were attracted to the restaurant as it was always busy when we walked past, however as it is a large venue and we were able to get a table quickly at each visit. We had brunch one day, I had the bagel with pastrami and cream cheese which was delicious! On our first visit for dinner we both enjoyed the burgers and on our last night of our holiday we had the steak which was amazing!! Great service, very quick and friendly. The prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area!!

Location: Great
Dining Room: Great. Large and Stylish
Service: Good. Effective if not always efficient
Food: Average. Generally acceptable

I have eaten at Dauphine over 20 times in the past year.

Dauphine is a rarity amongst restaurants in Amsterdam: it caters to the business crowd, it's kitchen is open late, it offers parking and it has a huge dining room. I have had several business meetings for lunch, dinner or just for drinks. The location is accessible, being just outside the old center, relatively near highway access, and as mentioned above there is parking available.

The menu is French bistro style, with some American and Dutch staples. The quality of the food is good but not great and there is variability according to who is in the kitchen so my Tripadvisor rating is 'Average'. I have had a couple of truly terrible dishes served (uncooked chicken, shoe leather steaks, etc.) but these were remedied with a complaint to the staff.

Service is friendly, generally effective but not great. Staff are helpful if not always efficient as they can be slow and sometimes need prodding. They show concern if things are not right and address issues promptly without question once they are called out.

Despite some weaknesses, I continue to use it as an acceptable choice for last minute business meals and to address late evening dining needs when all other places have closed their kitchens.

Dauphine is most appropriate for the business crowd and locals meeting for an after work drink. The place does not offer a unique Amsterdam experience and vacationing visitors to Amsterdam should consider other restaurants before Dauphine.
