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.

I don’t extol the virtue of restaurant food very often, despite the thousands of write ups I’ve done on TripAdvisor / and I entered this restaurant while staying at the hotel Sir Albert, not too excited, but wow. I can only comment on the food...we ate, so we may just have nailed it on our choices - but these were some of the best dishes I’ve ever eaten! Our server Jan was very nice too. Great buzz and views out of the windows to the street outside: Octopus - best I’ve ever had King spicy prawn - wow amazing Chocolate snow dessert / wow Don’t miss it if you enjoy Asian fusion food - it’s not cheap, but it is good!More

Our family had dinner here last month while vacationing in Amsterdam. The food was fabulous and the service great. Our family of 6 including a two year old dined on many small plate options and each and every option was excellent. Fun atmosphere, not too...loud and walking distance from our hotel on Prisengracht.

Outstanding small dishes like pop corn shrimp tempura or scallops in truffle sauce. The staff is very friendly, service punctual, a bit pricy and noisy but overall we enjoyed it very much

Small menu, but sufficient choice. Dishes are small and quite expensive but taste very good. Service was very friendly and nice. Not sure if it’s value for money though.

Extremely overpriced for the quality and service received. Some food came very late but they took out those dishes from the bill so that's a positive reaction. The place is a club with food where it's hard to have a conversation with the companion 50cm...far from each other.More

Unbelievable place. Great food. Cool ambiance. Excellent service. A little pricey, but worth it. I live in New York City and this is as good as any upscale and hip sushi restaurant as you can find here. Highly recommend this place!

We were a party of 5 and actually had a seat at the chef's table in a more intimate part of the restaurant. The different dishes served were of outstanding and innovative quality, like small slices of wagyu beef with truffle and sautéed garlic. Every...dish presented was another culinary surprise, well proportioned and truly exceptionally tasty. The dishes followed each other in orderly fashion , well timed. Interesting was to see the chefs right next to us at work. Professional, and gently preparing the fish ingredients into delectable bites. The service quality matched the food. It was overall outstanding . By a measure the best Japanese food we have had in Amsterdam ever. CongratulationsMore

Terrible fish - not fresh Bad combo of tasteless sauce and fish / seafood Very mediocre quality and high price After not finishing (having a few bites only) the dishes manager came to asked for feedback and then didn't even cancel anything. The only reason...they get more than 1 star is the music. Never coming back, not recommended at all.More

Not sure about the food, but the cocktails are 16 euros which is on the high side of the spectrum.
