The garden salad is amazing lol The rest of the food is great too. Amsterdam only sells their own beer but the blonde is easygoing and there’s a little something for all beer lovers. Inspired cocktails. Patio is stunning and the service is great! Shout outs to Kevin!!

Our gang's 'goto' place for dinner. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. I really like the Smokehouse burger, but everything I've tried has been very good. Nice patio, people nicely spaced out, with good ventilation.

Great experience at Leaside Amsterdam. The patio was amazing and it was secluded and private. The service was great and it was all COVID-safe. We’ll definitely be going back again!

Probably should have staffed more considering the sunshine. Seemed like server was also responsible for making drinks which lead to waiting 20 mins for a Caesar with no spices or flavour. Place is nice but needs some attention to detail and service

We sat outside, I was worried it might be cold but there were plenty of heaters and the offer of blankets.
Our server Kevin was fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable and very attentive.
We had a great time.

The service and food was great. But the reservation process was not ideal. As you know we cannot eat inside so patio is the only option. However, Amsterdam has yurts and I wanted to book one of these but this was not an option on your site. I mentioned it in the comments but the restaurant didn't get this message and had not set us up in the yurt.
However, there was a free yurt and they were able to set us up in there and it was a great experience.

There appeared to be some confusion at the door. Even though we had a 3:00 reservation we were made to wait about 15 minutes while they seated other people with 3:00 reservations.

I really like Amsterdam Barrel House. The food is good and the beer is excellent. I was a bit disappointed after having a reservation and then still having to wait to get a table. Then finally sitting down and the server first served a table that showed up after us. That was annoying. The service improved a little bit afterwards. Amsterdam always has very good food. I recommend the delicious cauliflower app and the double stout is amazing. The service is generally very good. This time it was average.

Our experience was only marred by the absence of the fire burning. It was cold up on the second floor.

Pretty good - our service was a bit slow due to the weekend crowd - but that is just picking up the nitty-gritty.
In general - the food was great - the beer was great - seating was good.
The location is a bit off, especially if you are using TTC as you might drink.
Does not have a great view of the likes of Amsterdam Brewhouse but then you get the reservation fairly easily.

Really enjoyed our first visit here. All covid precautions are taken seriously and felt very safe and able to enjoy some normalcy.

Drinks were really lovely and the staff were knowledgeable and recommended some great beers for us. Food was top quality and really tasty.

We were sat outside but next to a lovely gas fire and were warm (with coats) despite the cool weather. There were other heaters and fires dotted around. A great place to get out for a drink and some grub!

We love being able to pop into the restaurant because the patio is a safe area, attractive. The staff is very accommodating and helpful.
The menu holds a few of my favourites. Fish tacos! 👏🏻👏🏻
Thanks for being open for a safe Covid safe environment. Well done. You make me feel like life can almost be not.
