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.

We had the fixed price 3 course menu with a glass of fizz and coffee. For £50 each, we felt that this was exceptional value for money. The quality and portion sizes were fantastic. We opted for matching wines and they didn’t scrimp on this...either. We thoroughly enjoy this treat and feel the restaurant deserves all the praise it can get.More

This was, by far, one of the best dinners out at a restaurant I've ever had. It's rare that I will remember every aspect of a meal out, this this is one I'll remember for a long time. The food was superb - I was...truly blown away with each bite. Kudos to the chef and kitchen staff for creating such visually breathtaking, perfectly portioned, and wonderful tasting dishes. My partner and I are still talking about it a week later. Everything was cooked and presented to perfection, with kind and attentive wait staff to serve and introduce the dishes. The atmosphere of the restaurant was also delightful! We sat downstairs and while the acoustics do make it a bit hard to hear at times, the greenhouse theme and comfortable vibe made up for it. But the true highlight was, again, the food - what a sensory experience. We'd go back in a heartbeat.More

Quirky place with a sort of greenhouse inside. It’s an informal, relaxed sort of place. The food was very good, as was the wine.

Wonderful experience. We booked this a treat to celebrate us getting married and expected a very fancy dinner. I loved the interior, so this was a huge plus, but we were also pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the staff, thir patience with us when...we couldn't make our minds up over the dishes (from a very small menu might I add, due to our dietary needs). The food was delicious and the pre-designed menu with wine pairings well worth it.More

My wife and I had a fantastic Valentines meal here. The ambience of the restaurant is lovely, even on a cold, slightly soggy February evening. The service was completely superb, appropriately attentive, and completely knowledgable about all aspects of the menu. The food was sublime....Every dish was executed to an extremely high level of skill, perfectly seasoned, and not a bum note. The amuse buches and other flourishes were surprising and delightful.More

A special and inspiring environment - lots of plants - and an extremely delicious meal. We tested both vegetarien and meaty options and everything was very well thought if - with the slight exception of a relatively tasteless and irrelevant mashed potato portion (we never...quite figured whose plate is was to accompany, none of the portions seemed to need it). Very nice and well curated wine cellar, friendly staff, reasonable prices.More

What a huge disappointment for a restaurant that was recommended to us and should have been the pinnacle of an otherwise lovely long weekend in Copenhagen. We can’t review the food as we didn’t get that far. We arrived at our booked time and had...to hang about in the reception area without anyone acknowledging us for a while despite several staff walking past. Then we were shown to our table which was tucked away next to a private dining area. There we waited, and waited and waited. Larger tables near us were looked after. A large party arrived at the private dining area. Champagne corks were popped and drinks served for them. Staff walked back and forward and not one person bothered to notice for at least half an hour that we still had no drinks and menus still with us. So we got up and left. I appreciate the restaurant was busy but, in those circumstances, a place that cared about all their customers, not just the big group spenders, should have explained the situation and offered some drinks etc to compensate for the delay. That should be normal practice. A huge disappointment. However attractive the venue or good the food, there is no excuse for ignoring customers.More

Meh at best. I had my hopes up for this place, but unfortunately this was at best a meh. I had to send the main course back due to it being BEYOND salty. I mean, I like my food salty, but this was way too...much. The staff didn’t ask how the food was during, only when they cleared the plates, which was not too good especially since I wasn’t too happy with the main course. I had to «flag» a staff member down to tell them about the food being too salty. Also, my husband was celebrating his 40th birthday (we had noted this in the booking), and noone said anything. Stressed staff, we got the courses too quickly. Felt stressed and «factory like». A 3 at best. I was hoping for more :(More

Three of us enjoyed a relaxed Saturday lunch here. We booked on a last minute whim, and we were so glad to get a table. We all opted for the Vækst lunch with the paired wines. Each of the courses was deliciously light and flavoursome,...though the apple sorbet dessert could have been standout on its own without the junket. The wait staff were friendly and efficient and, while the restaurant became quite full as we left, never did we feel pressured to leave. The three of us certainly recommend dining here for lunch.More

I had dinner with some friends visiting CPH in December. The decor of the venue is very nice and according to my friends also the food. My experience as a lactose intolerant was completely different. We all went for a fixed menu and I tell...our waiter of my intolerance which was also mentiined in the reservation form. Apparently the chef's approach to make the recipes lactose free is to remove a bunch of ingredients or substitute one serving with a sub par alternative. So for instace my fish main came without sauce. Not something to expect in a restaurant boasting Vaekst level.More
