Great little place in Amsterdam for people who don't mind trying out exciting new flavour combinations and technical cooking. Together with my girlfriend had a great lunchservice here with food quality at the highest. And even though I'm not having a sweet tooth, i loved the desert!! WIll definitely come back here.

The food was amazing i had a half wine pairing but don’t think i’m old enough to actually appreciate the wines paired with the courses. Nevertheless it was an amazing experience, the waiter Rudy made me feel very welcome and explained every dish thoroughly. Thank you so much!

By far some of the best food I’ve ever had! I do enjoy the luxuries of fine dining and am, on accession, known to visit restaurants that serve tiny pieces of heaven. Senses offers food with incredible taste combinations, flavours, textures and above all artistic flair. And the service was wonderful too - very relaxed and well informed of all the items served. Definitely at the top of my recommendations list.

After coming out of lockdown this was my first choice of restaurants. I needed to be served a meal after cooking for my family for the past several months. I was not disappointed. Food, service, presentation, pacing, and ambiance were all 100%. They took every precaution to ensure pandemic-related precautions were taken without affecting the atmosphere and experience one expects from fine dining. I pre-paid the three-course lunch special which includes water, two glasses of wine, and coffee. I asked to have a fourth course added along with a paired wine and I was delighted by this decision. The added sweetbread course matched with an opulent red wine was the top highlight of a meal of many highlights. The server's competence and charm tied everything together into a perfect post-lockdown fine-dining experience.

Well I'm stuck in lockdown with the rest of the country. But unlike most people I'm lucky enough that senses was my last restaurant meal. I went with my best friend and we had an absolute ball. The wait staff were wonderful and friendly. The food was a collection of flavours that felt very familiar, but also new, in that they were perfectly distilled and composed against each other. The food was incredible but what really got me (and my dining partner) was the wine pairings. There was one pairing from the 7 we had that didn't blow our socks off. The sommelier said that he agreed and snuck us a little sample of the wine that he initially wanted to pair with that particular dish and all I can say is that man really knows what he's doing.

We had a 5-course tasting menu dinner and having eaten in a good number of 1 & 2 stars Michelin restaurants worldwide, would commend ‘Senses’ as one of our top 3. The service was excellent and very attentive, however as with a great many establishments right now, very challenging as customers stay away due to Covid-19 But you must visit as soon as you can!

Superb, friendly environment with matching service. The multiple course were creatively done with a wonderful combination of flavors. The wine list was significant to select from. A must visit restaurant.

The dishes were all a remarkable mix of flavors, with subtle combinations that were a delight. The service was excellent. I drink a lot of water and can usually judge the service of a restaurant by how good a job they do keeping my glass full. It never went empty here. All in all, a delightful visit. One note: it's a fixed menu. They had a vegetarian option for my wife, but if you have a more complicated diet, you might want to check in advance.
