The Christmas Eve booking began in an unfortunate way when we were seated at a downstairs table, instead of being seated in the unique upstairs section where we had dined since 2012 (in 2016 the restaurant was closed for renovation), for which we had an email confirmation. Reluctantly, we decided to leave. However, the management resolved the matter by finding us a table upstairs and we had a very enjoyable evening. The food was always delicious, but it has been given a sharper, more modern edge, while retaining its reliance on fresh local ingredients, and unique Dutch character. Staff very helpfully provided me with a delicious alternative broth instead of the veal course. Indeed, the service here is world class, of an extremely rare kind. The updated décor and the new regime in the kitchen will propel the restaurant towards a bright, exciting future. We have very happy memories of superb, special evenings at de Silveren Spiegel.

One of the better restaurants in Amsterdam. We come here every few weeks to enjoy the great cuisine and do some fine dining. Excellent and friendly service the way it should be. Very nice and old historical building breathing that typical "golden age" Amsterdam atmosphere. Mind you, make reservations if you like dining here. It's popular with Amsterdam "natives" and tourists alike.

Very traditional Dutch house and setting. Good was excellent, treating menu not large but excellent mix of tastes. Service pleasant. Thoroughly recommended.

Wonderful, delicious delight in Amsterdam. The chef's tasting menu was a culinary perfection! The restaurant was charming and old. Very friendly and courteous staff.

Looks like a really cool place unfortunately we were sent on our way because "there were no tables" with more than an hour left before closing. Perhaps that was the case but I literally was looked up and down by the waiter before he returned. I was left with the feeling this place required a dress code. Again maybe I am entirely wrong on how I read our interaction. Looked like a really cool place to eat. My suggestion to anyone thinking of going is to get reservations and maybe dress up a bit.
