The place is great. Is a little bit expensive but the quality of the food is really good. Also is open at night more late than other places near and that was the reason we end there.

What a disappointment! I used to love this place and I was excited to go back again after 2 years. This was my fourth time and I was not impressed with the food at all. The tournedos were average. What happened to the tender meat that used to be served there? My partner opted for the surf n turf (... More

Everytime my wife and I visit Amsterdam we visit Restaurant RED for dinner. It is a very nice place with a fantastic concept; Lobster, Filet Mignon or Surf and Turf, meaning that the kitchen more or less concentrate on two first dishes or the combination of the two. The food is very well made and elegantly presented and always done... More

We have been dining there last week. Surf and turf is good. Excellent meat. Do not choose for lobster bisque : disappointing. We ordered 4 lobsters; three were cooked the right way. Very helpful staff. Expensive wine.

Super cool restaurant in a great area in Amsterdam. Specialized in lobster, you can find the perfect combination between a cool decoration, a really good service and fantastic food! We ordered lobster soup, it was spectacular! And Surf & turf for the main course. The lobster much better than the sirloin but both very good. Wine, desserts and coffee too... More

As a meat lover, i always ask for the filet or tenderloin every time i go to a steakhouse, and i must say i had the most tender tenderloin ever! Tasted so good with the homemade béarnaise sauce, and the salad that comes with it was so fresh. I should also mention how graceful and smiley the waitress is, making... More

We had lunch before going to the Museum area, around 14.30. Very nice inside. We had lobster and steak. The bernaise souce has been divine. One world: wonderful. Fried potatoes really good. The wine suggested with the dish was perfect. One suggestion: if you go for dinner, make a reservation

Thank giorgiacalta
