Nice, but not great. Food was okay but certainly shy of the price. Atmosphere was good and drinks were very good.

We had a wonderful evening. Had we have known about the upstairs seating we would have requested that when we made the reservations. We were seated at a table by the kitchen door and by the elevator. Also, when the front door opened there was a very cold breeze that came in.

It was my first visit, and the staff could not have been more engaging and helpful, from the history of the restaurant to appetizer and entree recommendations. It was Saturday night, and there was live music. The musician was spectacular, and added special color to our evening. Our server, Megan, was superb. Friendly, knowledgeable and very nice. She set an excellent pace for the meal, and personally kept checking in and ensuring that our food was prepared and served.

I plan to visit again, and would gladly recommend the restaurant to friends and family in the area.

For our first visit there, we had wonderful moments and some misses too. Service in the bar area was so attentive and immediate. Service in the main dining area was okay-some items ordered never made it to the table. Our server overall was very nice, but there was some miscommunication from her and the kitchen. Food was just okay for the price. I ordered the ribeye and it didn’t come with the butter topping, it didn’t wow me. The salad was yummy, fries were yummy, and the mac and cheese and brussel sprouts were also just okay. I would give it another try though.

We at at the bar on the 3rd floor. We wanted to try and soak in the partial view of the skyline. It was a Saturday night and the bar upstairs was relatively steady. Not insane busy but steady. However, there was only one bartender and maybe 25 patrons. Not ideal. The bartender/server was very sweet but the service was extremely slow.
The food was brought in a timely manner but honestly for what we paid, it was pretty subpar. The portions were so small and the taste was less than expected. The value was not there. We would have rather paid $10 more and gone to a higher end restaurant.
We went for the view and got that somewhat. So, for that, we are grateful. Likely won’t be back though.

Everything was good, but not spectacular as it has been in the past. Overall just wasn’t worth the high price. Waitress was unsure of drink specials and had to look at menu for ingredients of desserts. My steak wasn’t as good as I remembered, very salty, sides were small, would rather go somewhere else for the price.

The service was top notch, from the bartender to everyone who helped with our table. We tried out two appetizers, the best was the fried cheese one, we also added the Dutch noodle dish as an appetizer, it was interesting and well worth trying. We all split dinners, the strip steak although expensive was excellent and a good size, the fish was very small more like a lunch portion but everyone enjoyed it. The Brussels sprouts were mushy, and odd, we had a group that love them normally but no one enjoyed these, the root vegetable mash was interesting a worth trying.

Steaks were excellent. The service was good but lacked any personality or warmth. The ambience was not desirable. Overall we all agreed the environment was very sterile.

What’s going on here? For the last two years the quality of food and service have been phenomenal. That seems to have changed. There are too many other restaurants out there to risk a repeat of my most recent dining experience.

The quality of the food seems to have decreased drastically. The whitefish appetizer was lacking, and my wife’s salmon entrée was nothing but mediocre. The worst was my $52 dry aged strip steak. While properly cooked to medium rare, it was still bland, dry and tough.

We had multiple issues where the manager should have spoken to us, but didn’t. I told the hostess of a concern about the clothing of one of the other patrons which went unaddressed, and my wife found a shard of glass in her side of broccoli. Both were ignored and unacknowledged, except for the waiter questioning if we wanted something taken off our bill, which we declined. Our concern was glcontamination of other food in the kitchen.
In frustration, I spoke to the manager on the way out, and it was IMMEDIATELY obvious that she doesn’t deal with problems and absolutely didn’t want to deal with me. Could I have handled this better? Yes. Should she have been a receptive professional that’s supposed to be addressing customer concerns? Absolutely. Even if she had zero plans to resolve my concern, at least she should have talked to me and recognized problems existed.

So what do you currently get for the premium prices they charge? Mid to low level chain restaurant quality and the feeling your dining dollars would be better spent at a different restaurant.

We had reservations for 4 on Saturday at 5:00 pm. Used valet service, walked in front door and led to our table. cocktail and wine selection was fantastic, appetizers and meal was amazing. We all really enjoyed the restaurant and the bar upstairs. Staff was pleasant and very responsive. Already looking forward to next visit.

We had a wonderful meal here late on a Saturday in December. Despite some challenges with availability (supplier shorted them on Filets), both he server and the manager could not have been more gracious. The alternative was one of the best ribeyes we have tasted. We will be returning to Lisse.

We went with friends a few weeks ago and totally enjoyed the quality of food and service. So we thought we would take our nieces. We were not impressed. The charcuterie tray was not as flavorful. One of the four steaks was overcooked. One was to order and the other two were adequate.

Dinner was delicious; we had the Filet with the Brussel Sprouts and Hutspot. The restaurant was clean and beautifully designed. The tables were generously spaced creating a private atmosphere for guests. There was live music provided by a gentleman playing the sax and harmonica. He sounded amazing and the sound was at the perfect level to hear him clearly but still able to carry on conversation at a normal volume.

Party of two promptly seated for a pre-show dinner. It was early so the dining room was not yet filled. Everything was excellent: cocktails / appetizer / salads / filet / halibut. The plating was a little odd as the entree sits alone on the large plate, and looks small. Dinner + tip = $140.

The steaks are wonderful as are the Dutch menu items such as bitterballen and hutspot. The dry-aged compound butter was phenomenal the first time we went, not so much this time. Great deserts and excellent wine list.

Ordered steak to be pink in middle. First attempt was blue!! Second attempt was delivered just as my wife was close to finishing her main course (which was just OK), but was blood red. A women appeared who did not announce who she was and asked if the steak was overcooked!! I showed her the blood red steak which she announced was pink!! I was there for a good time, not to argue. Whatever happened to the customer is right? We dine at Jeff Rubys, Capital Grille, Embers etc all the time and we know what a pink centered steak should look like. Dreadful experience and we will not be back.
