I have very mixed feelings about my visit to Senses this weekend, the food was out of this world, however I found the service terrible. It was over 10 minutes from when we were seated to being asked if we would like a drink. We had the 6 Course Tasting Menu, however as we are not huge wine drinkers we decided not to have the wine pairing. Well it certainly seems that if you don't have the wine pairing then they don't have much interest in providing you with a drink at all - at one point I had to ask 3 different members of staff for a new glass of wine before I finally received it.

The food is sensational, there's no getting away from that, but at times we had to wait over 35 minutes between each course. On a 6 course menu this adds up to a long time! This might be okay if you're with a large group of friends, but I was a table of 2 and expected better. The staff are very knowledgable when you do get their attention and suited the ambience of the restaurant well, but unfortunately they weren't very attentive in their service.

When it came to getting the bill it took me at least 5 minutes to get the attention of the waiter who had spent 20 minutes talking to the table two down from us (a table of 6, I think he was hoping for a big tip from them and therefore our little table didn't matter). Bearing in mind there were only two tables left at this point, from asking it took a further 15 minutes before anyone approached us about paying - I was getting very frustrated by this stage.

After the first couple of courses I was raving to my fiancee about the people I was going to bring to the restaurant (I travel to Amsterdam with business once a month, often with different clients), however by the end of the meal I am not sure I would bother to return

The food is obviously well thought out, but not everyone will like the "surprise tasting menu" philosophy (you choose 3, 4, 5, 6 courses, but don't know the dishes). This makes wine pairing very difficult if not impossible, in which case you must then opt for the Restaurant's wine pairing selection. Overall we were underwhelmed, though not dissatisfied about any aspect. Lacked a little "wow" in the dishes in terms of taste, for the money you should really have an element of this.

Our experience at senses was extremely special. I couldn't say anything bad about any of the dishes that we had. The service was very careful but not invasive. Definitely a place to come back to

A wonderful and very different experience, it's sometime good to experience tastes that you might not necessarily order from the menu.
Staff were so helpful and friendly.
Highly recommended.

Had a lunch there. Nice place with good service. Good quality-price combination. That was my first time there, so I chose 4-courses tasting menu: some dishes were good, some were very good. Nothing overwhelming, well balanced taste, so i would say it's a safe choice for everyone. Perfect size portions for the tasting menu. Will I return back? Yes. Tasting menu without alcohol: 40 eur

Good quality and very original menu. The servuce is also good. Some limitation in the choice... i mean you cannot choose something outside the standard menu, and the menu is unknown. Too long the time between each course.

My husband and I had a 3 course lunch @ Senses restaurant in the Vijzelstraat in Amsterdam center. We thoroughly enjoyed the choices the chef made for us. The food was outstanding and if possible the presentation even better. The dishes were picture-perfect and delicious in a relaxed atmosphere with pleasant service. The glass of white wine we enjoyed with the meal rounded out the flavors very nicely and although we normally don't have dessert we were very happy we did this time. A delight for the Senses we would highly recommend.

Hi Goodeats,
Thank you so much for sharing your experience at Senses here on Iens. Your recommendation is much appreciated. Great to read how much you enjoyed the overall experience and the white wine rounded out all the flavors. I'm glad you were amused with the dessert even though you normally don't have dessert. It's a treat for us to read you enjoyed it so much.

We would love to have you as our guests again anytime soon!

Warm regards,

Sandra Lopez
