Perfect NY's Eve dinner!

A friend and I made a reservation via e-mail in Scent to dine on New Year's Eve. They replied fast that there was still a table available so we booked, not quite knowing what to expect, but the menu of their 4 or 6-course menu that you could check on their website looked already very promising.

We dined here after a long day travelling and couldn't face going out looking for an alternative. The restaurant is part of the Cosmo hotel and benefits from a very chilled out contemporary vibe. During the week most of the diners were business people and the environment is classy and low key. Service was prompt and generally efficient. The menu... More

Like another reviewer we were the only ones in the restaurant. There was not a lot of choice despite the menu at the front of the hotel and the schnitzel that we chose was just average. All a bit of a lost opportunity.

I am really happy have decided to go to this fantastic restaurant to have dinner. The experience started from the beginning: Music, lights, furniture and of course the food. I had the lamb as a first and fish for second dish. I had the Scence Cocktail twice to drink too, absolutely fantastic flavors. One of my best dinner I ever... More

I had a set menu but the starter was seared beef and the main was seared beef so not a lot of variety. Staff friendly and service good. Good location for a business event.

We went to have lunch at this restaurant after having read good reviews on Tripadvisor. But we were a little disappointed. We were the only customers in the restaurant. The food was ok, no more, and the portions were quite small. Service was fast and good. Maybe the dinners are better than their lunches?

Simple things can make a big difference. The entree salad was not a standard salad, the Wiener Schnitzel was not a standard one. Everything had a quite unique touch that made our meal a truly different experience. Do not expect haute cuisine or a gourmet restaurant, but do expect quality and attention to details. Just try it out.

It's not cheap but you get what you pay for. The presentation was great, the ingredients are fresh and organic and the food tasted very good. The homemade ravioli was perfect, the mushroom risotto was nice and creamy... I would recommend the restaurant specially if you are in the vicinity.

The restaurant offers a three- or five-course set dinner menu, the former, which we had, proving to be excellent value at 38 euros. We started with a roulade of Hereford beef, fennel salad and radish vinaigrette, followed by a main course of variations of lamb (tongue, saddle, escalope and liver) served with artichokes and chanterelles with a redcurrant jus.

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
