I have been several times to Le Sommelier. It is one of my favorite restaurants. The wine card, the service, and the food is in my opinion superior to what you have to pay for it. The place looks very elegant, with the bar receiving you in the entrance, with high seelings distributed with different rooms. Flavors are rich and very well balanced presented in a nice visual way. We had a 4 course menu, and SImon the Sommelier recommended an extra plate (foe grass with a red wine sauce). We had Scallops, and Guinea Fowl finishing with a nice chocolate dessert. All plates were combined with very tasty and fresh vegetables and sauce. For wine, we had 4 different wines all recommended by the Sommelier to match all courses. All in all, one of the best options for good dinning in Copenhagen in a medium high priced restaurant.

If you love wine and food like me, you cannot skip Le Sommelier, as one of the owners of the restaurant is the best sommelier in Denmark, and the head chef is Francis Cardenau, who was the head chef at Kommandanten when it had 2 stars in the Michelin guide.

And this is where the problem arises, because going from 2 Michelin stars to 0 stars almost corresponds to when Brian Laudrup switched from British football to Danish football, Brian Laudrup could not lift a whole team alone, and instead of making the others better, he became worse.

This should not be interpreted as the food being bad, because it is not, it is just not at the level that you would expect from a place like Le Sommelier, and obviously, that is disappointing when you have really looked forward to it.

Apart from the fact that I was given a wine list that had the restaurants own notes written on it with a pen, you cannot put a finger on this, and the price level is also quite reasonable.

The atmosphere is a bit dull, and seems more suitable for a business dinner than for a dinner with your lovely date, but the main deduction occurred when I visited the bathroom, which smelled, had a full trash bin, which meant that there was used paper lying around on the floor, and the customers had peed all over the toilet. Obviously, it is not the restaurant’s fault that their guests are pigs, but it is the restaurant’s fault that they do not regularly check the bathroom and do something about the problem.

The service alone deserves 5 stars, quick, friendly, informative and with impeccable precision.

All in all, the verdict is 11 out of 15 points, which means that Le Sommelier gets a total of 4 stars, close to 3.

Lovely food, excellent wine menu and a good place for meeting clients in a quite informal setting. Only drawback is that it gets a bit noisy. It is hard to talk with someone else than your seating neighbour.
