I usually love the food at Amsterdam. The past couple I've been there has been very different than what I expect. Even the world famous CRAB CAKE AND AVOCADO sandwich was not the same. I really hope they get things together there.

My wife and I went there for Valentine Day. I had the grilled pork chop with mashed potatoes and collard greens and it was very good. Howver, my wife, who is allergic to garlic could not find anything on the menu that she liked or that didn't have garlic in it. She select 4 different entrees' and each time the waiter said they had garlic in them. Finally she selected the cobb salad, but had to settle for oil and vinegar dressing because all of their other dressings had garlic. So, overall, it wasn't a pleasant dining experience.

New Menu is great - had the Tuna Wraps. Was interested to see how they pulled them off - they were outstanding. Great job at updating the menu without going too crazy.
Kept the long-standing staples, brought back the Lamb Burger (THANKS!), and have new items that look great and I will have to try.

We chose The Amsterdam Cafe for Sunday Brunch for our daughter's birthday. The food was just ok, but nothing special. The service from the male waiter set the tone for the whole meal. His seemed as if he was inconvenienced by our being there. Three of our party ordered coffee. When he came to refill the coffee he only refilled two of our cups and I had to call him back to fill the third. When we mentioned ordering Bloody Mary's he let us know in a snarky manner that we couldn't order them until after 12 pm. We were there past 12 before we left and he never offered to sell us the drinks we had asked about earlier. He also never offered dessert before he brought our ticket. I tipped my minimum of 15%, but for good service I usually tip 20% to 30%. It was his loss and the restaurants loss because we wI'll not be going back.

I probably eat at Amsterdam Cafe on Gay Street in Auburn, AL an average of once a week. They have a couple of gluten-free options (which I require) and I seem to be able to eat one of them, the Rum Salmon salad, at least once a week! It is reliably yummy. I substitute all romaine lettuce for the mixed spring greens because I find romaine stands up better to a piece of salmon hot off the grill, and I get the salmon blackened. This salad comes with mango, toasted pecans, and a tangy citrus dressing. They serve this salad every day and night. Although I think there are other gluten-free items, I almost always get the Rum Salmon salad at lunch. Our only (minor) complaint about the restaurant is that it can be hard to hear conversation if the restaurant is crowded.

We had an amazing time!! we were celebrating a friend's birthday who had never eaten at Amsterdam before. She really enjoyed herself. We sat in the back room (honestly, I never knew the back room existed! It was extremely beautiful!) The $15 bottomless Mimosas were the absolute best I have ever had. The unfortunate part for us was because we did a late brunch (1pm), some of the food choices were already 86'd for the day (Chicken and Waffles and the Seasonal Pancakes and Bacon). However, the other options we decided to go with were phenomenal. I had the Steak and Eggs (OMGGGGGG!!!!!) and another person in the party had the Shrimp N' Grits. The grits were so think and creamy and delicious, and they gave her a decent portion of shrimp as well. Alone, I think I may have spent $35-40, including tip. I will definitely be back here soon!!!

Food was at best mediocre. I had the short rib and it lacked flavor and was borderline dry. My friend said his meal was " poor." Our impression was that food is prepared in advance and reheated. Not worth the visit.

Everything was outstanding except for the seating area which made it difficult to carry on a conversation. I would return, however, I would request to be seated in the lower downstairs section or outside if weather permitted, not up front.

I was not impressed with the menu choices or the food quality. We had a group of 7 and all of our food came out at different times...some several minutes after the other. I use to love this place, but I will probably not go back. There are better options in town.

Food, drinks, and service were excellent as always. Very good selections from the menu as well as the daily special. Besides an extensive wine list, Amsterdam Cafe has a very good beer list from all the usual suspects to high test specialty brands.

Made reservations at Amsterdam after, I admit, we had tried to get into some of the newer restaurants but without luck. All reservations taken. We have eaten here at Amsterdam before and always liked it but thought we would try something new. I'm glad we ate at Amsterdam. The other restaurants required a credit card with some outrageous fee if you don't keep the reservations. I understand the risk they take and that there are rude people that won't cancel reservations but Amsterdam has no such policy and I appreciate that.
Our dining experience was great! Very attentive and friendly waitress. I had the Mahi burger and it was delicious. My daughter had the lamb burger which she enjoyed. My husband had the burger special of the day which he said was very good. We like the front room of the restaurant. It seems a little more cozy but the back part is ok just a little noisy.
All in all a great place to eat. We highly recommend it and we will go back.

We love Amsterdam Cafe and have held numerous special occasion events there. This was a graduation lunch party of 10. Our only complaint is that we were seated right in front of the door and it was a VERY cold day. Every time the door opened we were blasted with cold air. We asked to be moved to the back room and the staff tried to accommodate us but were unable to do so.

We ate at Amsterdam Café the night before my daughter's graduation at Auburn. The only negative I had was we were a party of 9 and were sat at the very front near the front door and it was close to freezing outside so it was cold. Our location in the restaurant could have been better. Our food and service were excellent though and we had everything from sandwiches to steaks. I had the ribeye steak and it was excellent and cooked perfectly. I ate every bite of it. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
