For the last ten years we have been coming here about once a year. For TEN years. Great food, low impact stuff, just a great time. The table is yours for the evening!

Highly tasty, refined and varied foods. You'll find yourself ordering 3 courses easily as all are very well portioned (as in: you need not fear huge heaps of food in one go). Service is friendly and usually adequate, tho I agree with other reviewers here that at times the waiters may drop the ball as in forgetting a drink order or letting you wait a bit. In this regard, the place could do better.
But, I emphasize that this is still a great place to dine. Imho the food is supreme, on nearly every visit I've left glowing praise for the chef.
Pricing is...well it's not budget, but it's reasonable for a top Amsterdam location (the prestigious "Concertgebouw" district).
I heartily recommend De Knijp!

Got into Amsterdam late. One of the few places open. We had the steaks which were quite good. Good wine selection. Service was attentive. Overall was very pleased.

Our last meal in Amsterdam and we went to DeKnijp. We were seated quickly on a mezzanine, and we got the old raised eyebrow routing we have become accustomed to as non drinkers when we ordered our iced teas.
The food is really very good and portioned well. The only comment I can find on the negative side is the slow service.
The drinks were dropped and we waited quite some time before she came back to take our food order. The food arrived in decent time, ( I don't mind waiting a bit for my food if they are preparing it properly) then we were forgotten about again. Must have been the mezzanine, which is only a couple of steps up from the service level.
If you want a good meal eat here but be prepared to wait for it.

De Knijp is one of those places where the food is always decent. Prices are a bit high but understandable seeing its location around the corner of the Museumsquare. Being able to have a late dinner after a show at the Concertbuilding (kitchen open till 00:30) gives it this classic late night French bistro feel. The menu compliments this, with a lot of classics and with the chefs not shy of using a lot of butter and cream in their dishes.

Our last dinner there was fine as usual, except for the ribeye which wasn't evenly cut and therefore overcooked except for the centre bit. Mentioning this to the staff didn't result in any apology or compensation, something that we would've expected for a restaurant with prices where it's to be expected that your steak is cooked right.

However, this is the first time in years that De Knijp has performed sub-par. As such, we will be back for more.
