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.

This has absolutely been our best meal here in Copenhagen! After a long day of walking and seeing the sights, we were tired and didn't want to do the tasting menu-- what a mistake! The a la carte dishes we ordered were so wonderful that...we ended up ordering more dishes just because chef was creating such vibrant food. We ate about 75% of the menu and our favorite was a phenomenal broccolini dish that still has us thinking about it. While all the flavors were wonderful, I think that the food really shined with a beautiful mixture of textures that awakened the taste buds and kept each bite fresh. We have to give a special shout out to our wonderful server Celina! She was a delight throughout the entire meal, and was especially adept at recommending wine pairings to complement our food. This was our first time in Copenhagen and look forward to coming back and tasting whatever new seasonal menu they're offering at that time.More

I contacted the restaurant directly on Oct 20th to book a table for New Years Eve. The booking for that evening had not opened yet, but they were kind enough to contact me on Nov 3rd with a payment link for deposit. I paid that...the same day and received a confirmation. That is to say that we put in a really early reservation. The reason I'm telling you this is that when we got to the restaurant we were given a table that sat directly in front of the toilet door. There were 4-5 toilets behind that door and the restaurant was packed so there was o constant flow of people opening and shutting the door located directly next to our table. I immediately asked to be moved but to no avail. Some halfhearted excuse about how this was not their fault but rather the booking agent they used did not sit well with me having spoken only directly to the restaurant. They warned me that the service could be slow due to full restaurant which is ok as it was probably the busiest day for them. They did not however warn me that all the food was cold. Mushroom soup cold. Scallop cold. Meat cold. Cod cold. We did point this out to the waitress as a lot of the food was left uneaten because of this, but cold food kept coming anyway. I realize that some of the dishes were meant to be served cold, but surely not the ones mentioned? A bad experience, we left long before the clock struck midnight. Will not be back and cannot recommend.More

Had booked for dinner and arrived approximately 10 minutes early. It took a long time for anyone to talk to us and more and more bookings were arriving. Finally we were told that we were too early and our table wasn't ready but we could...go downstairs and wait. I have no problem with that. However once we were downstairs, we were straight away told we couldn't wait there and was sent upstairs again. We were then roundly ignored until well past our reservation time, standing for another 10 minutes at least. Then other tables arriving later were being seated before us. Even the diners noticed and were giving us sympathetic looks. We didn't bother waiting around after this. I have never walked out of a restaurant before so congratulations to Basso on being the first.More

Had the Sunday tasting menu (13 servings) and the accompanying wine menu (or so we thought). The food First 4 courses were 4 x deep fried stuff, one bite of each for each person. McD makes it better. Next 4 courses were more interesting, particularly...the soup with mushrooms was nice. Had to ask for more bread. 4 "main" courses were a bit more substantial in size, but not in taste. Not bad but also not nearly as good as we'd hoped at a restaurant of this calibre. Final course was a spoon (not scoop) of banana icecream with a broken cracker (called "crumble"). The wine We ordered a wine menu to go with the tasting menu. 5 glasses. - a Spumante which was ok - a Sauvignon blanc - a Barbera d'Alba - a Moscatel wait, that's only 4 glasses, Yep, and that's all we got. When we told the waiter he apologised. Then left. The Service Staff was friendly and said all the right things. But, when asked if the tartare was tuna, salmon, beef or something else someone else had to be asked. When the wine menu was 1 glass short, no compensation was offered. Overall Not bad, but also not good and for us, not worth the price.More

After reading all the positive reviews about Basso, we decided to book the restaurant before our theater visit. We were in good spirits for the evening, but unfortunately our experience at Basso turned it around. We were seated right outside the restroom where people constantly...passed by, and when we asked for another table, we were told it wasn't possible. When the dishes came, we had ordered the theater menu, there were small dishes served before the main course, which were tasteless and some of them were inedible. The main course was okay, as was the dessert. The best part was the wine they recommended. It's not a place we'll be returning to, and I'm surprised about all the positive reviews, maybe we were there on a bad day for the chef...More

Let’s start with the good bits: lovely, knowledgeable staff who did their best to tell an interesting story around the food and wine. The setting was lovely too, cosy and informal with quirky touches such as cutlery wrapped in an oiled canvas canteen that brought...an outdoors flavour to things. Now the food. A punchy mushroom consommé aside, everything else fell way short of the mark. Overcooked pasta, tree trunk broccoli, artichokes that felt slimy and straight from a jar. Dessert was inedible. Ladies’ fingers of sponge that were soaked in water with a tasteless brown gelatine flap crowning the catastrophe. Wine was okay but the dessert option aside, each glass just didn’t deliver on the story behind it. A real shame as we were so looking forward to eating here - and it wasn’t cheap.More
