Simply the best in the Netherlands

Just one comment. How do you make a desert with strawberries, sling beans and dille and make it the best desert ever tasted. Go to spectrum a two star that deserves to have three.

Possibly the Best Meal Iโ€™ve Ever Had!

This restaurant is absolutely fantastic. So much care is put into every detail resulting in some of the best food Iโ€™ve ever tasted. We had the full fine dining experience, made up of 10 courses, so that we could enjoy this restaurant to its fullest potential. This consisted of 4 rounds of amuse bouches, 6 mains and 8 small desserts.โฃ The menu is a Dutch-East Asian fusion, with the duck especially being inspired by Chinese cuisine. The dishes served up are fun and different, especially the desserts such as avocado sorbet (my favorite course) and a set of six chocolates that are flavoured like previous courses to remind you of them (how cool is that?!). โฃEvery detail has so much care put into it, even ranging to the homemade butter, which comes in 4 different flavors. Staff is professional, yet warm and friendly, tending to our every need.โฃ The restaurant truly leaves a great impression and a full stomach. Every aspect of our meal was fantastic and this may be the best meal Iโ€™ve ever had.

Great anniversary dinner experience

We were celebrating our anniversary and what better way to do that than a great dinner at Spectrum and spending the night at the Waldorf Astoria afterwards. With the current Covid restrictions itโ€™s the best way to make great memories. We appreciated the card signed by the Spectrum team. We arrived late afternoon and were seated in the corner of the restaurant with a nice view of the garden. There are two choices in the menu, vegetarian and regular. My wife opted for the vegetarian option and me for the regular fish/meat one. Both options were great but especially the veggie version was excellent. We opted for the wine pairing by sommelier Cas. He explained all the choices and we had different wines as we had different menuโ€™s, so lotโ€™s to discuss what we enjoyed. We would have appreciated a bit more red wines and after the dinner Cas brought us a nice round red to finish of the evening. The dinners started with two great amuses followed by 7 courses, I appreciated the pidgin a lot and my wife watermelon. What we missed was a small pre desert and a sweet desert, I understand the chef isnโ€™t a real sweet tooth but some (me) are. So my tip for the menu is to put a bit more effort at the end, the chocolates with flavors of the menu didnโ€™t do that for us.

Best dining experience in years

Signature dishes with combinations of flavours and ingredients that are truly novel and surprising. Wonderful stylish and relaxing ambiance. The talented restaurant team lead by Sascha makes you live in the moment and enjoy the wonderful experience while everything is taken care of. To summarize, a fantastic restaurant at a fantastic location with a wonderful team that leaves you with a one of a kind experience that we will probably remember for years to come. Looking forward to revisit somewhere in the future.

Fine dining at itโ€™s finest.

Sidney, Sascha and the masterful team at Spectrum have created a truly once in a lifetime experience (though I hope to return soon!) We had the vegetable tasting menu and it was clear that the vegetarian menu was just as considered as the meat menu. Delicious surprises at every turn in a meal I will never forget. Iโ€™d say more but you should just go and go hungry!

Creative dishes, lovely staff

A great place to try out food combinations you never thought about (like chocolate & truffles ). Very risky flavor combinations , for most of the dishes it worked out for them. There was no choice of bread, but the bread that they serve was on spot. We ordered 2 cocktails, both were fantastic. The servers stand out, engaging in a fun conversation with us, and even allowing us a peak to the kitchen!

Beyond My Wildest Expectations

After an entire year of research, and much consideration, I booked our hotel stay at the Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam and also booked dinner reservations at Spectrum for our final evening. I could not be happier with this choice! Our dining experience at Spectrum was more incredible than I can even begin to describe. As we walked through our hotel lobby, someone immediately asked to escort us to Spectrum and took our coats. We had a lovely table in the corner and were surrounded by beautiful artwork. Service was absolute perfection. The servers were professional, but not stuffy, warm, welcoming, helpful, and a true delight. Sascha went out of his way to make my special early milestone birthday celebration, the dining experience of a lifetime. We have had the opportunity to dine at many phenomenal restaurants around the world, but our experience at Spectrum tops them all. Executive Chef, Sidney Schutte, is truly brilliant and creates a feast for the senses with each course. Food was not just a work of art, but also a taste sensation. We opted for the 11 course tasting menu, and this truly is the only way to do it. My husband and I are both pescetarians and I have a mushroom allergy, but the chef did a beautiful job constructing a meal that was out of this world. I am very grateful that I read the TripAdvisor reviews on Spectrum because this convinced me to book our special dinner. If you are ever near Amsterdam, you should go out of your way to dine at Spectrum. It will be an extraordinary experience that you will never forget. Thank you Patrycja, Sidney, and Sascha for making our trip to Amsterdam spectacular. Of all tours, museums, and activities we did in Amsterdam, dining at Spectrum was our favorite.
