I had scallops and a tri tip steak here. The steak was alright, the scallops were excellent but seemed quite expensive to me ($9 per scallop). Oddly, the butter that they serve with the bread was unique and quite good. I would come here again but probably explore other places in the neighborhood before I did.

Grotesk offers a great steak restaurant and bar. We visited the bar only - great experience, great choice of cocktails and drinks. Seating and atmosphere is varied and has tables as well as lounge feeling.

Basically a bunch of guys craving steak and were recommended this place. The place is unpretentious and in the summer has a very nice terrace (we are still in winter). There is a rather large bar section as well. The menu clearly has a selection of Premium Beef. You can order other non meat dishes (fish, veggie and pasta) but... More

I ordered a Ultimate Grotesk combo (including 1 snack, 2 starters, 2 main dishes, 2 deserts) and waiting time between each food is about 20 - 30 minutes.

We had the tasting menu (€49) with wines (€26). When opting for this menu you are served whatever the chef feels like, which is nice because it saves you the trouble of choosing and it's quite fun to be surprised. Bread came with browned butter which was excellent. As starters we were served a delicious steak tartare and something that... More

Had a three course meal and the food was great. Main course was steak and it was tasty and good. The drinks were also good. Very few people in the resturant when i was there, so the service was also very good.

Meat was not served attractively. It was served on a single metal plate for all three of us who ordered meat. Also bearnaise sauce was finished, so we got some kind of chimichurri sauce instead, which was another dissappointment. Staff was just ok.

I was desperate for some quality steak expertly cooked on charcoal - and while in London you have multiple options for fine meat dining, the same can't be said for Helsinki. Luckily Grotesk is just round the corner and will reliably not disappoint. The meat is all carefully sourced - a combination of foreign and local beef is available -... More

We read about this place before booking and the reviews were mostly positives especially about the meat and fries - and yes both are amazing. The only thing I would mention is service. We arrived and there was not one person to greet us, a couple of staff walked past but none acknowledged us. In the end we found the... More

The food was ok-ish. It is supposed to be a steak restaurant.but the only way they prepare it is on the grill. The result is that it is properly cooked to be medium-rare, but Black&Blue is not possible. The side dishes were a bit boring and the atmosphere was fine but not special. I wouldn't go here again, given what... More
