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.

The food is ok, but the mix between Italian and Danish ingredients did not work. Mealy peas for the lobster have little to do with seasonal Danish ingredients. The wine menu was decidedly lousy. Wierd choice of wines and one that we had to send...back as it was completely cloudy and unpleasant. However, it required discussion with the waiter. When paying, they had no information on the deposit paid. In addition, very strange behavior, as they continued to address a gentleman in the group, even though it was a lady who was responsible for the payment. Unfortunately, a thoroughly bad experience, and you get considerably better food, wine and service at other restaurants for the same money.More

I liked being greeted by my name at the door. Staff are very good, I had read reviews suggesting they are over attentive, this was not my experience they had the balance about right. They don’t leave the wine bottle on the table which always...grates with me. Each dish was immaculate with flavours to match. Cutlery is strange. One minute you are welding forensic tweezers, next you are expected to tolerate fried foods with your fingers. Smallest negroni I have met but very good. I left with delightful memories and a full stomach which is never guaranteed at such establishmentsMore

This is the worst two hours, that I have had in a long time, the food was terrible and there was too much staff, the staff was arrogant. There were more staff than customers in the restaurant. I convinced my husband to go to this...restaurant - he did not like it. We were served by four different waiters, but none of them really cared about, what we wanted. I honestly think the people servicing this restaurant should think seriously, whether they have the right job.More

The atmosphere of Brace just captures the perfect mix of elegance and simplicity. It is a fine dining experience made to suit everyone. I always thought that these kinds of restaurants were too “much” for me, but I was overwhelmed by not only the friendly...staff, but the amazing food and overall experience. The level of detail put into every dish was stunning and really just made me highly curious for everything on the menu. I also got to talk to the staff about their philosophy and their ingredients. For me personally, it is such a vital aspect of where the food comes from and how it is made. By hearing about their concept to be sustainable and the use of local & fresh—(& I believe even wild!) — ingredients I wasn't only fully satisfied with the taste, but also felt good about the food I was eating. A great thank you for the beautiful evening, and I can only encourage anyone reading this to engage in a unique and beautiful dining experience they will never forget. 6/5 Stars! (PS: If you have any special allergies or wishes, make sure to mention that upon reservation)More

Suttle tastes with balanced choice of wine pairing. We are all bias but when hard ti choose your favorite dish usually means several are very good. This was case. Lovely evening. MrJXRay

Well, it was some time since we last visited Brace. This time it was not as good. Some of the dishes were really brilliant, but other dishes were not. The sommelier was rude from the beginning. The other waiter were very nice. Wine pairing was...8 glasses of wine, but what we had were not glasses. It was like 3 sips in every glass ... waste of money. If this is going for the first star I'm not sure that Brace will get one. Very disappointing evening :-(More

We ordered the 12-course tasting experience. Few dishes were good, most were lacking balance, texture and were all very heavy.. but what really bothered was the service. the restaurant has a number of tables arranged around a sort of central dispensing point. Eventually there was...service of 3 different waiters who continuously walked restlessly around the tables and made dinner with each other completely impossible by constant interruptions. We were also stared at all the time, by waiters, sommelier and even from the open kitchen. It just wasn't right.More

Went one day after the grumpy reviewer from the 27th January... I have been to all the 3 star restaurants in Copenhagen and would say this is up there with any of them, and doesnt even have one star (yet) Every course was simply outstanding,...both in presentation and taste. We had the full brace menu plus wine. Yes you can argue the price is a little high, but you are also in a beautiful location and a restaurant that doesnt do that many covers a night. Ingredients arent cheap. We liked the wine pairings with the food and after a glass of the champagne to start, had a good pissed feeling, so maybe the other reviewer was a hardcore drinker complaining that there wasnt enough wine. All in all, well done.. Oh i almost forgot, the bread done over 48hours was the best ever ..More

Visited Brace Friday 27th January - and I am NOT impressed! At the booking, my husband mentioned the dinner was the celebration of 25 years of marriage, but when we arrived, Brace hadn´t done anything to add to the celebration! We ordered the Brace Experience...with wine pairing. 1100 DKK for the menu and 900 DKK for the wine pairing. 900 DKK for 8 very small glasses of wine - a total rip-off. On top of this we paid 250 DKK/glass for a very small serving of a mid-quality champagne. Due to the corona-guidelines, the waiters was wearing facemasks, but never-the-less it was impossible to hear what the waiters explained about both the food and wine - none of our guest couldn´t hear anything! Paying 55 DKK/bottle water, in total 225 DKK just for water - I find it ridiculous! One of our guest was "lucky" enough to find a long black hair on one of the servings - I must conclude the staff hadn´t checked the course before leaving the kitchen. If Brace have ambitions of Stars, I suggest the kitchen up their game significantly ! When leaving the restaurant, nobody was present find our coats - we where left to our device searching the wardrobe. In total our experience was anything but what we had expected and looked forward to!More

It is a lovely gesture by Brace to leave the menu on the table because it would be impossible to remember the many flavours, textures, and colours involved in this amazing dinner experience. I have never seen or tasted such ingenious combinations of ingredients, and...several times found on my plate stuff I didn't know existed. Dining at Brace does not come cheap but it is worth every krone/€/$/£ !More

Give me 2 courses… max 3, and I’m a happy man. I’m not for microscopic, tweezers-toiled food. Bistro cuisine hits the mark for me. But this was an exception. 12 courses and I was hoping it would never end. Just incredible… Some courses just blew...us away. The bread with glazed rosemary was insane. Cannelloni with the saffron butter sauce was fantastic, meat with mushroom was excellent, zucchini in tomato broth wasn’t great, dessert… OMFG… loved it!More

Impulsive gourmet dinner for two - 5 course with wine pairing, and a great pleasure! We had a couple of pre-starters and sicilian sparkling wine, and excellent guidance with the selected, italian wine for the wine pairing. The dinner was italian inspired with danish ingredients,...and the frozen/fresh/ warm peas dish with basil was excellent. Also the langoustine filled pasta, the lamb and the strawberry:vanilla dessert was excellent! Highly recommendable!!!More

Had ordered delivery from Brace. Had Danish Hamachi-tartare with chive emulsion, deep-fried buckwheat, piment d'espelette and herbs and Roasted chicken porchetta with beluga lentil ragout, kale, rosemary oil and deep-fried pork skin. The delivery arrived with clear instruction iro finalisation of the dishes incl advice...that if not finished they could be eaten the following day but should be stored in the fridge. I had by mistake ordered 2 tartares so good to know. The tartares were delicious - good taste, good seasoning a real pleasure! Also the chicken porchetta was excellent and I ate all of it despite not being a fan of lentils.. I can only recommend this restaurant - eat-in when we are allowed back or as delivery/take-away. I had 2 dinners incl delivery for 454kr, it is not for free but good quality pays off!More
