Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Appalling service, shocking for such an establishment. Extremely stoned waiter serving, rude and inattentive waiter not serving the table in an almost empty restaurant just waiting for his shift to end clearly not caring about his job, other server texting constantly. YIKES!!More

The food and ambience were amazing. During the first part of our dinner live musicians played the beautiful piano part of the decor. The restaurant has a very varied menu which is also great for sharing. The staff recommend us great tasteful dishes to share...(the Saffron Risotto is amazing) Although the restaurant just opened the staff was able to share their recommendations with us and really contributed to the overall experience. Barista Simone really made us feel home (and made great coffee afterwards) Overall; great experience, beautiful ambience and really worth the visit!More

The new mediterranean concept of Barbounia in the lobby of the Conservatorium Hotel is a big success. The vibe is there, the service impeccable, the food very nice. We went on a sunday evening and it was busy, but not too much, we got all...the attention that we needed. The great thing about this location is that its so high that the sounds travel up, so it doesnt matter how busy it is, you can still have a perfectly normal conversation with your dinner partner, without the sounds starting to ring around the restaurant and you don't hear a word anymore of whats being said. This is the downfall in my opinion of most restaurants in Amsterdam, the acoustics is the last subject to be budgeted and thought of - if at all, and when its not busy its perfectly fine, but when it gets busy its horror. We had as an appetiser the oysters which were very good and tasty - a la mignonette - and the tiger prawns, which I liked very much that they opened them for us allready, so you dont have to wrestle with them. We also had a greek salad which was very good but on the small side, but o.k., its an appetiser. We drank Negronis throughout the dinner, which were excellent. As a main course we both had the Sole au Lemon, which was great and very tasty. Overall it was a superb experience, it all adds up, the ambiance of the Hotel, the waiters which were very polite and always in the background available, to the nice smelling liquid soap in the toilets, it's all perfect! Can't wait to go again.More

We order two appetizers and five main courses, the appetizers were brought about 15 minutes, but for the main courses we had to want...for an HOUR!

Made reservation to have lunch for two in Brasserie. After having been put on crazy uncomfortable low chairs, we found out that instead of hearing eachother, we were forced to join the conversations of our very close neighbours. It was actually difficult to discuss how...to handle this bizarre situation. We left after 5 minutes of surreal sound pollution. Ironically, the name of this acoustic hell is Conservatorium....More
