    Every course, we had the 6 course dinner, was , I can't find the adjectives, layer upon layer of flavors. A surprise combination of flavors with each course. My tongue was in heaven . You MUST eat here, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy !!!!

    Absolutely stunning food and even better service. I wish I had the names of the servers so I could give them the biggest praise. Wonderful atmosphere, every course was fabulous & the staff couldn’t have done any more to ensure we had the best experience!!

    A wonderful evening with fantastic food. It made me realise how tasty fish can be and matched with excellent wine. Thanks to Luigi for looking after us.

    Outstanding food and service. The chef created a special menu to take account of my dietary issues and my partner not being a great lover of fish. The first amuse bouche, a macaroon filled with Thai soup may be one of the most amazing things I’ve ever tasted, this was followed by course after course of delicious morsels of fish, black seaweed, lovage broth, etc. the service was perfect, Luigi took good care of us, and the espresso martini was also very good. The price seemed very reasonable for a Michelin starred restaurant. Beautiful ambience, well-spaced tables. I would recommend to anyone!

    We went for the ´Special Michelin’ menu and it was excellent. The chef prepares very fine dishes with very various tastes. It was a great experience. The service was perfect as well : efficient, kind, simple. We felt totally at ease. Last but not least, it is really affordable. For this quality in Paris it would cost you twice the price.

    I had a wonderful evening as a solo diner at John Dory. Each dish was delicious and just the right amount of conceptual. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. Trust their wine advice! Everything offered great. The atmosphere wasn't pretentious at all. I will definitely return.

    Fine dining. Excellent seafood, beatifully presented. We started with a glass of Champagne (Lacourte Godbillon) and a platter of oysters (Irish MOR and Gillardeau - the former type is more robust and more to my taste). We selected the 6 course menu and enjoyed the taste sensations. We had a mixed experience concerning the service. The table reserved for us was located at an unappealing spot. Fortunately there still were some unoccupied tables to switch. The waiter who served us was very friendly and helpful, the waitress though was less so and inattentive. The location is supurb and the ambiance is intimate and romantic, though except one ugly decorative panel (not matching with the style of the restaurant) and some blank screens (for sound isolation??) wall decoration is missing. Water and a plate of amuses is served for free, which is a nice gesture. The champagne at € 20 per glas and wine at € 37 per bottle are rather pricey, the 6 course menu for € 75 pp is priced very reasonable given the supurb quality. Overall recommended.

    The food was delicious and the speed of serving food was quite fast. The waitress that day wasn't pushy, but it was difficult for her to bring out a hearty smile. There isn't much atmosphere to talk about - I didn't hear any music and the walls were mostly bare. We went for the food and it was good.

    We chose the 6 course surprise menu. Every course was brought with a clear explanation of the ingredients, each course was well presented and delicious. When I didn't order any dessert because I dint like the choices an alternative was brought to me. Excellent service!

    John Dory is an excellent restaurant, as a guest you feel really welcome. Water and bread, appetizers and sweets with coffee are all free of charge. Something I always get when dining in a good restaurant in Paris but in Amsterdam rarely. The chef is great, the food close to a Michelin star and the staff is very professional. Very good value for money and a very nice place to go to.
