When we turned up, it was empty, which although nice, meant there was little ambience. Food was great - simple meals, well presented. The service was poor and it seemed that ordering was a hassle for them and they did it reluctantly. Overall, was good, but with a good service, this place would rock.
Bleu is a go to place but please don't let people know or it will be too crowded! Never have had something I did not enjoy.
We had some wonderful food. However we did feel like they were slightly understaffed which resulted in us not feeling particularly looked after. All in all I'd definitely go again and would recommend to anyone
Amazing food and atmosphere, very relaxed and amazing staff
It was great
Wonderful place. Nice service nice food
Great neighborhood. Simple, local cuisine. Value wines by the glass.
Great service and food.
My experience here was very mixed. While the food and bev was outstanding, the service was lacking.
First, the server sat us and gave us water glasses but never asked if we would like water. Not a huge thing, we figured we'd just ask later no problem. Totally fine. Then, the server asks for our order and I asked for the mussels and whatever white wine pairs best. My friend ordered the steak and a lovely cocktail spritzer. We also ordered a couple of appetizers. The wine and cocktail came, then our appetizers. All is delicious, the ambience is great, we're very happy. (P.S. the decor here is lovely!)
Then the server after quite a while brings my friend's steak and looks at me quizzically asking if we are sharing. I told her (just as confused) that we were not sharing, but didn't have a chance to mention that I had ordered the mussels. My friend very kindly waits to eat her food, and the servers have all seemed to disappear. Even a local couple sitting nearby asked if everything was OK since I hadn't received my food. After a good 15 minutes, a different server from the one that took our order appeared and I flagged her down and mentioned that I had ordered the mussels. She looked shocked and excused herself to run downstairs to the kitchen. When she returned, she said the other server never added my order to the ticket. They rushed it and comped our next round of drinks (thank you!) and then we asked if we could also get some water. She also took the steak away so that it wouldn't be cold. Much appreciated!
Finally the food arrives, and of course it is delicious. We never did however get our water which I found slightly humorous, and all in all it took about 3 hours for us to finish our dinner. I would definitely come back because the food was divine, but hopefully we don't run into problems with our order next time.
Great food at a good price and the place is cool and collected. Service is friendly and welcoming.
Fantastic place, amazing food and great service.
Excellent food, great location.
Found Bleu on Open Table. What a gem! Food and service were fantastic. My wife had the mussels, and I had the fish special. Both were incredible and nice portion for the money. Also enjoyed dessert, get the chocolate crumble and you will not be disappointed. I am back in AMS in two weeks, and one of my dinners will be at Bleu!
Amazing mussels. The service could not have been better. Hanne and Mandy took care of our group so well you would have thought they were the owners...making sure our seating was comfortable, our food was perfect and even inviting us back. Highly recommended
Catch of the day is always fresh, and well-prepared. Fairly crowded though.
Great food and customer experience. Ragne and Bente were superb at managing and running the restaurant. Ragne even spent the time booking a reservation at their sister restaurant for the next night. All around Excellent.
Helen our server was so friendly. Advised us well on delicious food we enjoyed very much - and as a bonus we left with a list of sights to see in Amsterdam and surround! Terrific choice. Highly recommend
Really nice restaurant with good food and very nice and friendly staff!
We have enjoyed our dinner and the atmosphere at the Bleu very much, and our dog felt also very welcome!
Lovely place with warm friendly service. The food just didn’t live up to everything else
Na een uur wachten op ons hoofdgerecht (het was nieteens heel druk) kregen we de vraag of we nog en desert wilde bestellen. Waarop ik antwoorde dat ik liever eerst mijn hoofdgerecht wilde hebben voor dat ik daar eens over na ging denken. Oh heb je die nog niet gehad........ na nog 10 min wachten (stond op het punt van vertrekken kwam het hoofdgerecht. Geen sorry geen excusses. Was een beetje jammer!!
Amazing food and service
We were looking for a hearty meal (with French onion soup...) and a nice sit down meal after running around all day. We were pleasantly surprised by the helpful staff, and the excellent food here - really good for a solid meal in the middle of the city.
Nice place, attractive decor and friendly service.
Leuke spontane bediening
Anspruch und Wirklichkeit klaffen weit auseinander.
This place has great food and a really cool relaxed ambiance, paired with an amazing service. We loved our meal and the casual vibe in the restaurant. I highly recommend this place and would certainly come back whenever I'm around town.
Restaurant was ok however the service from the staff was terrible. Went there with my wife for a nice meal and was told that we had to share our chips and salad even though the menu says every meal comes with its own chips and salad. We asked for extra chips and more sauces and it took nearly 20 minutes for the waitress to bring them and at that time we had nearly finished our food. However we found that the waitress were more interested in serving bigger groups and having conversations with them.
Very poor customer service and would not recommend at all. Management need to recruit new staff if they want to have a succsssufl restaurant
Recently ate at Restaurant Bleu with my family. We had a wonderful meal and the service was very friendly and attentive. The steak, escargot, appetizer platter and mussels were flavorful and excellently prepared. Will definitely go back.
The staff were very attentive and the food was great - everything they recommended was worth trying.
Must have the chocolate crumble!
