Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Travelled down from København for Christmas in Hamburg and this was a treat. I’ve eaten at a few Michelin * restaurants over the years but this was by far the best meal and experience I’ve had. I never knew that food could taste this good....The wine pairings and the staff were excellent. Congratulations to all involved.More

Excellent Michelin star restaurant right inside Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten. We walked from our suite to the restaurant without needing transportation. The experience of this restaurant is exquisite and memorable.

We had the pleasure of dining at Restaurant Haerlin in Hamburg, located in the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten. From the moment you arrive, you are greeted with vibrant, bold floral displays, which is a theme that runs through the menu. Each dish is adorned with...the most beautiful arrangement of herbs and flowers, all chosen to complement the food beneath. Every sauce, purée, foam, and ingredient has been expertly refined to extract every last possible drop of flavour, often using contrasting notes on the scale to work together and complement each other. Each piece of fish and meat has been treated with the utmost respect and cooked to perfection. As you would expect from a restaurant at this level, the staff were exceptional, going about their duties flawlessly. They were not only professional but also personable and fun. It's a breath of fresh air to have such an enjoyable interaction with the team, which can sometimes be lost at this level of restaurant. The pace was comfortable and we appreciated that, it made the meal an event. We ate: - Trout fillet with wasabi & cucumber vinaigrette - Garden stroll with fennel & herb cream - Apple meringue with goose liver & celery - King crab & Imperial caviar, verbena & saffron crustacean foam - Gillardeau oyster poached & raw marinated, oyster bourre blanc, tomato-juniper granite & crème fraîche - "Spring salad" roasted suckling pig belly, herb sugo & black garlic - Lacquered Norwegian Langoustine stuffed morels, lemon chutney & homemade Nduja - Turbot from Noirmoutier grilled chorizo oil, calamari & artichoke saffron broth - Odyssey guinea fowl "fricassee," champignon de Paris, verjus & foie gras - Saddle of venison from Heath, green juniper hollandaise, celery & cassis - Sorrel sorbet szechuan mousse, citrus compote & yuzu iced tea - "Homage to mummy" cream curd, celery strawberry, waffle snack & blossom distillate - Petits fours Thank you, Restaurant Haerlin, for making a lasting impression on usMore

The food is very good as expeted. The service is rather slow. Altough we asked the team to serve the food a bit faster, nothing happened and we were waiting up to 45 min between each course. To my opinion other 2 Micheling stars resturant...are more special.More

Restaurant Haerlin in Hamburg's most renowned 5-star hotel Vier Jahreszeiten is definitely the most classic fine-dining experience you can get in town. From the dining room's pretentious decor to the very distanced and formal service staff to the menu itself, every aspect lives and breathes...traditional luxury. The food is excellent and immaculately prepared, albeit lacking any surprises by strictly following all the ingredients and courses you would expect on a traditional French-style haute-cuisine menu. During our visit, service did not meet adequate standards in being not very attentive, mixing up food and wine orders on the table more than once (even though we were only a party of two), and often being late in serving wines to their matching courses. All in all, a delicious meal, but not a flawless experience.More

Excellence in food and service in a calm and nice environment. A 6-course set menu and optional wine pairing are expertly prepared and presented. Very comfortable chairs and very good distance between tables. An experience in a calm and blissfully quit room over 3 hours...which permits both reflection and conversation. Highly recommended.More

was the first time in that place in 2013 and I must stay that 7 years later it's still outstanding ... everything is a show, the service, the food presentation in the plates , the taste in your mouth. Only one menu available but very...fine. If you take the Grand Cru wine selection (they select the wine for each dish for you) then you are reaching heaven (the batard-montrachet is one of the best wine I ever drank). Very pricey but worth every cent !More

Haerlin is a very enjoyable place, very traditional atmosphere and very relaxed. The food is great (2 Michelin stars), the service appears formal, but isn´t servile. We love the place, and the dishes by chef Rüfer are wonderful!

I made reservations months in advance and wasn’t disappointed. The food here was exceptional. It’s more like Modern Northern European cuisine than Central European or French. We were quite happy with the food there. The presentations, the executions and the thought behind the tasting menu...sequences were top. However, there were not enough really really good bites that would remind you about the restaurant. Plus the meal was painfully slow. I was surprised my 5 year old son managed to last over 3 hours meal. It was too slowly really for the food they served. The services were professional and the prices matched the name. The ambiance was grand.More
