They have a look at their website they have all the availability dates and times. Website also gives you options to say about foods you don't like or can't eat. Really easy to use.

In general there is no tiping in Amsterdam because there is usually a service charge. However, if one really likes the service, which is amazing at Vinkeles, one can chose to tip.

Description
Vinkeles is housed in an old bakery; which was set up in 1787 by the Regents of the Catholic Church, who at the time owned the building. The bakery flourished until 1811 and guests still can see the original ovens, which were discovered intact during restoration work.Echoing the décor of the hotel, Executive Chef Dennis Kuipers’ menu combines the traditional and the modern. The dishes served in Vinkeles show Kuipers’ love of the contemporary French cuisine. He combines the freshest ingredients to produce a menu that is delicious and unique to Vinkeles. In 2009 restaurant Vinkeles was awarded a Michelin star.
