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.

Fantastic service. Five course meal was a nice selection of fish, lamb and bird. Well seasoned and decoratively prepared plates. Location is sufficiently away from the craziness of Center City…great location. I’d recommend you download the Zenchef app to book the table.

Johannes was truly exceptional and it really felt like you were getting value for the money spent. All of the food was executed extremely well and was creative and well thought out, one of our favorite parts was the wine pairings. They all felt so...perfectly tailored to the meal. One of the best dishes I’ve ever had was their asparagus! Really brilliant. Can’t wait to go back.More

This is an absolute gem of a restaurant. We had the Chef’s 5 course tasting menu, with everything a surprise. No need to worry, as everything looked superb and tasted just as good. Zander with wonderfully crispy skin was so nice, a generous portion of...flatiron steak with perfect accompaniment of vegetables, and a great cod dish with hollandaise were highlights for me. Service was excellent and really friendly, with lots of helpful suggestions along the way. Excellent choice of wines and even some thoughtful and delicious non-alcoholic options.More

We had a five-course set menu at Johannes. It was actually around eight courses because there are amuses bouches and other 'extra' courses, so it was excellent value. All the courses were beautifully prepared and presented. The grilled fish (pike-perch) was perhaps the most skilfully...prepared fish I have ever had in a restaurant - truly delicious. The wines by the glass are also excellent. Amsterdam doesn't have many top-notch restaurants. This is one of them and we will certainly go again.More

Exquisite food; excellent service and first class location. They have two tables for 2 overlooking the canal and street - these are the most romantic tables in the place. It’s expensive but excellent value.

Located on the hip Herengracht street restaurant Johannes is a must go to restaurant in Amsterdam. I love fine dining but I am a challenge to any chef with my food allergies. Chef Sam personally went out of his way to insure I had the...most sublime 5 course menu. His attention to ingredients and the combination of flavors is superb. Every bite is memorable. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff is attentive and friendly. I hope you will pay them a visit and you will be as enchanted as I am.More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were so pleased that they did. This is first class restaurant, in a lovely canal location, with friendly efficient staff & delicious food. This is high end cooking and therefore you have to appreciate that it is not...going to be a cheap evening but in our opinion it was certainly worth it. Very enjoyable.More

Perfect size small restaurant - lovely interior and a good outlook onto the street and canal - book a window seat if you can. Both a la carte and 3 different tasting menus with optional wine pairing). They were even happy for me to have...a tasting menu and my wife to order a la carte, which is unusual. Food is beautifully presented, fresh produce and very lovely tastes. Service is excellent. Wine list has broad and very good choices. I didn’t think some of the wines on the ‘by the glass, paired to the food’ selection were as good as they could be, but they were all interesting.More

The last night in Amsterdam and what a showstopper in Johannes! Mielettömän hyvät ja suussasulavat viini-ruokalaji-yhdistelmät. Viiden tähden palvelu, saimme mukavasti tietoa ruokalajien sisällöstä ja ruoka-aineallergiat otettiin hienosti huomioon. Makuelämykset olivat vertaansa vailla!
