Reviews for Elske

No desire to recommend or return. Outdoor fireplace at entrance was the most Scandinavian part. Dishes were fine, but not amazing or particularly interesting nor remotely Scandinavian influenced and i go there often since my Dad lives in Norway. Service was good but please train your vegan and vegetarian waitstaff to answer questions about EVERYTHING on the menu, despite what they personally choose to eat or avoid. Liked the house sparkling water.

Setting was lovely?especially with the fireplace in the winter. But food was lacking?generally too many components which didn?t work for me. The best dish we had was the simply prepared anchovies?but others were a miss including a much too creamy/gloppy sauce with the sea bass and very dry and over cooked pork belly. Open kitchen was nice but needs better ventilation. We were a bit early and hostess suggested we have a drink in the bar but no one offered to serve us...

I had dinner here with a big business group, so the menu was prearranged. But, wow - what an interesting dinner! Everything was super creative and delicious. I'm looking forward to returning to see how their regular dinner service works. It was refreshing to see someone doing something different, and doing it very well. Highly recommended if you're looking for something different and extraordinary.
