    Great concept and quality! The service was attentive, with a genuine attention to the customer. The atmosphere was warm and chill. The mise en place was a bit pretentious - cutlery for each of three dishes. If the goal is sustainability, even cutting on small things like this can reinforce the restaurant concept.

    Food was great as well as atmosphere and welcoming. Also awesome is the idea of not wasting the food. However, for lunch choices are pretty limited.

    Excellent food and lovely atmosphere. Thought their aim of reducing food waste ingenuous and inciteful. Wine and beers fab too! Only drawbacks were slowish service and could’ve done with a bit more on each plate.

    Instock Amsterdam

    Dear Caroline, Thank you for your review and your support to reduce food waste at Instock! We will definitely take your feedback into consideration. I hope to welcome you again in Amsterdam, Utrecht or Den Haag. Kind regards, Dorien van Remmen - Assistant Restaurantmanager

    We loved the atmosphere and the restaurant is so beautiful. A gorgeous band was playing the most delightful 1920s jazz music - perfect! Unfortunately the night we were there they also had a big event in the next room - that meant our food took SO long to make, so we were there from 19:30 until 10:00, waiting for ages between each course, which wasn't great since the food was really small in size and very quick to eat. The portion sizes were SO tiny and two our of our group of three were so hungry afterwards still - would be good to make the portion sizes bigger and also serve some bread for people, particularly when the waiting time is so long. The food was delicious though and we loved the concept, a lot of vegetarian options and some creative and carefully considered dishes, so hoping that with a few improvements it will be a wonderful place to eat.

    Instock Amsterdam

    Dear Katy, Thank you so much for your review, we really appreciate your feedback and we will definitely look into the improvement points. I'm sorry to hear that you had to wait so long for your food. Glad that the band entertained you with their beautiful music! They play every Saturday evening, so come by another time to enjoy their music. Thanks again and have a good day! Kind regards, Dorien van Remmen - Assistant Restaurantmanager

    Special Concept. The dishes are invested in their visibility. We ordered a few small portions and shared some. We did not find dishes suitable for children.

    Instock Amsterdam

    Hi Ziv, Thank you for your review. We are happy that you liked the food. You can always ask us if you would like some food more suitable for your children. Hope to see you again some day!

    The service was great and the place is really nicely designed/decorated. The food did exactly not blow my mind but it didn't disappoint either and I do appreciate the concept of rescuing the food that would otherwise go to waste. The overall experience was very very pleasant.

    Instock Amsterdam

    Thank you for your feedback and we would love to see you back soon! ps. we have a new menu and the food will not disappoint you at all!

    The idea of this restaurant is very nice but they should pay much more attention to the service. After our appetizer we waited one hour for the main dish... when we asked the waitress about it she was surprised even if there were just four tables to look after! We can accept a mistake but at the end we ordered a coffee and after 15 minutes we had to order it again... and the waitress didn’t seem to feel responsible for this second mistakes! The food is good but the service has to be taken more seriously!

    Love the concept. Menu really tasty and creative. My only negative experience for the meal is that the meat was quite hard in the main course, but the combination of flavours accompanying that meat was really creative and well thought. Service was really good when we came for dinner. We have visited the restaurant before for lunch and service was really slow. So i am confused there. I would be put out by this but decided to give it another try for dinner and did not regret it. So maybe something to think about improving.

    Instock Amsterdam

    Thank you for the feedback. Good to hear we suprised you with our creative cooking, and we will looking into the struggle with the meat. Thank you for your honesty and kind words.

    Everything was good although the soup was wonderful. The main meat meal was very nice but the veggie option not so interesting.

    Instock Amsterdam

    Thank you for the review. With the christmass menu we serve awesome piccalilly croquettes as vegetarian option. We keep improving every day!

    This was one of the most disappointing experience I had with a restaurant in a long time. The food is overpriced and far from exceptional. We waited almost 1/2 hour for our main dish. The all concept of the restaurant - rescuing food - then translated for me into a hipster exploitation of environmental concerns. Reall a shame

    Instock Amsterdam

    I am so sorry to hear that your experience with Instock wasn't what you expected! Of course this is not what we want to achieve. We cook with a lot of passion and everything in our menu is homemade. Please come in contact with us, so we can talk about a solution for a better experience next time! You can send us an email to amsterdam@instock.nl or make a phonecall to our restaurant. Team Instock

    It's awesome! Great atmosphere, nice waiters, dishes are tasting and goodlooking. Perfect for an ethically romantic night out but it seems good for a friends' meal too

    Instock Amsterdam

    Thank you for the kind words. We hope to see you again. Maybe soon for breakfast or lunch? Did you knew we have in all three of our restaurant a private area you can hire for business events, private dinning, celebrations and more?
