We had the four course Surprise Menu with the wine, which was a wonderful way to experience a number of wines we wouldn't normally have had, and they were all good and went well with their course. Servers were gracious and knowledgeable and food was delicious and creative.

Based on the great reviews, the fact that they have vegetarian dishes and they are also aware of food sensitivities, we gave Senses a try. We enjoyed it very much. Everything was delicious, and the service was friendly and helpful. They cheerfully made sure everything was gluten-free for me. All the dishes were beautifully presented and prepared. It was a fun experience all around.

The first impact is the environment: cozy and elegant. Immediately after you can appreciate the staff, kind and young. Continue enjoying creative interpretations of of local dishes, cured, refined and with some Italian influence thanks to the talented sous chef. The whole is accompanied by a good selection of international wines. Very good sensations.

We had a 24 hour layover in Amsterdam and simply walked around looking for a restaurant and after searching trip advisor while having coffee, we realised we were close to Senses and the reviews made it appear an interesting eclectic place. Thanks to the staff, we were seated without a reservation and sort of placed ourselves in their hands for both drinks and the tasting menu. We opted for the 5 course tasting together with wine companions. We are so glad that we did. A delicious aperitif with Prosecco, orange and balsamic opened up the door to a great evening...highlights included a stunning lamb dish with beans, a white chocolate dessert, smoked salmon with citrus puree and lightly pickled cucumber, a marvellous duck liver encrusted with pistachios and guinea fowl in both a traditional manner and in a spring roll. All with beautifully matched wines. We appreciated the very individualised service, with excellent descriptions of the food and its components and a very relaxed atmosphere allowing us to eat and drink in a very relaxed manner. I would advise a reservation to be made as we witnessed several groups turned away. Thank you so much for a truly memorable evening.

My wife and I really enjoyed this restaurant. We had the three course surprise menu with the wine pairings. Delightful change from usual Amsterdam fare. service was good and waiter took time to explain every dish.

What this restaurant provides is not so much a meal as an art form. Each dish was a work of art - we almost felt that it was a shame to disturb the beauty of the dish by eating any of it! That said, the fusion of flavours worked astonishingly well; each mouthful was heavenly and at times surprising. My one niggle was that my husband and I chose vegetarian options and they weren't particularly substantial. Our friends chose the halibut which they raved about and it was certainly more plentiful. The service was terrific. Everything was well explained and the two waitresses who served us were cheerful, friendly, efficient and helpful. I recommend this restaurant highly.

First...the food is expertly prepared and the most creative I've ever experienced. If you can handle surprises, go for one of the multi course menus. You can tell them what you're allergic to (or hate) and put you meal completely in their hands. For the less adventurous there are plenty of choices. My colleagues both had a fish dish. The service is also excellent! Another nice surprise was complimentary appetizers, whatever the chef whips up. Do not go here if you want traditional food!
