Amsterdam Cafe Ratings and Reviews
After football game dinner. Not high expectations since close to college campus but wow we were wrong. We were pleasantly surprised. Calamari was great. Tuna was great. My husband got filet and it was acceptable but not great. Sides were good. Service was outstanding!!!
Our reserved table for 7 was given to another party, hostess mistake. After a bit of confusion and 15 minute wait, we were taken downstairs to a table. This area is MUCH nicer than main level. It does not have servers constantly bumping diners since main level is too crowded and too loud to visit. Cocktails and food were very good. Service maybe a bit slow but we were visiting and it did not bother use.
We had a large group for our Senior Homecoming dinner and the restaurant did a great job getting us seated (although we did have to split in half) and while the food was great, as always, 1/2 the group was finished before the other 1/2 even got their food. All in all, it was a great night with great friends! Thanks! AHS Seniors ‘18
Made a reservation on Open Table and when I arrived was told they had no tables and the app should not have allowed it. When digging in, the manager revealed the fact it should not have been allowed but my name was clearly in the system. They bent the rules and found an outside table which was a notch above being asked to leave. The manager did not acknowledge how he screwed up and he agreed to cover an appetizer which we had to ask for.
Food is always good but not worth this level of service.
Hostesses were not very accommodating. If I hadn’t been there before and have a reservation, I probably would have left. Hostesses need to be friendlier and more helpful. Had a reservation and was helped by manager. Table service was very good! We were a table of 7. Brought me wrong dinner. Waiter was very good and very helpful.

Great brunch and service too! Loved location and even good parking! We dined in the back dining room...very cool room and bar with beautiful features and display of wine bottles. Would definitely like to go again for dinner! Only negative: It was freezing inside!
We have been here a few times in the past and always enjoyed our meal. We went for brunch and had a reservation right at 10:00 when they opened. While my shrimp and grits were at least warm, the El Benedict and pancakes and bacon were cold. Not sure if the immediate rush on the kitchen was too much for them to handle the amount of food coming out at the same time but the quality was lacking this time. Usually spot on.
Amsterdam has become a traditional gathering for my group of 6 pre and post game. It just sets the right tone for fun and catch up time with friends. Staff is always helpful, courteous and friendly. I love this place!! Oh....and the food is outstanding!! The chef adds new items, there is always a special dish and he keeps the favorites. What a combination.
Unfortunately they were short-staffed the night we were there. Our server had too many tables, and even when we brought it to management's attention - twice, nothing was done. We had to wait 20 minutes to order a drink and 30 minutes for her to come back and say they didn't have what we ordered. NOT okay! She blamed it on the bartender, but by then the restaurant was only 1/2 full, so I don't believe she was being honest.
Finally the manager did apologize, but they didn't do anything other than say we're sorry. Won't be going back - WAY too many good choices in Auburn to bother.
Seated right on time! Loved the bartender and hostess. Food was good, however table agreed seafood was okay. Jambalaya and avacado crab sandwich did not live up to the talk- too much filling with only one thing slice of avocado. Would recommend the macaroni and fried chicken. Atmosphere was great.
We were here over Homecoming weekend at Auburn so it was extremely busy. We were seated on time, our waiter was great and food was good! We had blackened redfish, fried chicken with Mac and cheese, all good, but the jambalaya was just ok- was very rice heavy and not much else in it. Apple cobbler was very tasty. Only complaint I had was the table and seats were very wet when we sat down. We would def come back here.
As first-timers, we were very pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. We we're seated in a downstairs room not pictured in my online research. It had a bright and yet still cozy feel with an upscale, modern and elegant decor. There was also an atmospheric patio and a more casual main dining room. The menu had a good variety of lighter vs heavier selections and with a good variety of price ranges. Our server (I'm sorry I didn't get her name) did an excellent job on a very busy home football game weekend night. We had reservations and were seated with very little wait. We had a great bottle of wine at a reasonable price-point. The house specialty crab cake avocado sandwich was wonderful! That was one item we ordered to share. The kitchen halved the sandwich for us and plated it separately. It was a nice service touch. All in all, I'd have to say The Amsterdam surpassed my expectations! We'd definitely recommend it and will go back!
In town Saturday for the game. Our group had a late lunch and it was AUsome. We all tried the Crab Cake and Avocado Sandwich! Oh my goodness! We are still talking about how great it was....best crab cake ever! Can't wait to come back and try more of the menu!
