    Fantastic experience dining here at Van Speyk. The food was very tasty, drinks were great, but the service was phenomenal. Every server and wait staff member was pleasant, professional, and made the meal so enjoyable. I was so pleased with coming here and hope to come again in the next trip to Amsterdam!!

    It was my first night in Amsterdam visiting from Boston and only chose Van Speyk because it was a three minute walk from my hotel, I was tired, and it looked like I would get a nice meal. I was not expecting the 5-star experience I received! The atmosphere is elegant but not snobby with huge crystal chandeliers and perfectly polished glasses lining the tables. The service was professional and attentive without being intrusive, and the food was incredible. I had the foie gras and rib eye steak with peppercorn sauce and fries; all were perfectly prepared and served. It is my fourth night now in Amsterdam and no other restaurant has yet to meet the standard Van Speyk set on my first night. Bravo!

    2nd visit but 1st since May 2013. Rich, Dutch food. Prices more in line with similar restaurants and not a bargain as 10 years ago. That's due to their continued quality! Main issue for me was bathroom downstairs. My bad leg had issues with steep, spiral steps! Food ok. Had mushroom soup plus chicken dish; other half had mushroom soup and halibut dish. Tasty but very small portions now. Service by 2 gentlemen was excellent and attentive. May or may not return on next Amsterdam visit since so many choices.

    Fantastic dinner. I had specials of a cauliflower soup and rack of lamb, which were superb and an appetizer of escargots. Recommendations and service were excellent. I had a great dining experience and recommend. Also, I never felt self-conscious as a solo diner/traveler, which is a subtle but important point - iykyk.

    Van Speyk knows exactly how to treat guests in their beautiful restaurant. The wait staff is very professional and kind. The chef was very creative and used fine/fresh ingredients. The differentiator was when the chef came to our table to discuss my allergies and modified my 3 course experience without sacrificing taste and presentation. The entire experience was perfection.

    Whilst the food was ok, the service was really awful. They forgot our main course order so this added to the 1 hour wait to 1.5 hours. As we were on holiday it was not too much of a problem but in normal circumstances frustrating. The waiter from cyprus was very rude and aggressive such that I will not record the statements.
