We are repeat visitors enjoying every visit to this restaurant. The chef's imagination at reinventing classical northern German recipes and bringing them into the 21st century is outstanding. Ingredients are provided by carefully selected first rate providers. When in town, don't forego a visit. The historic harbor front location with a matching interior decor is a definitive plus!

Clearly this is a restaurant that doesn't try hard enough. We were a group of eight and we struggled for service through the meal. A limited menu with very average food didn't make this a great experience.

I came for a business dinner for about 80 people. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful, an innovative repurposing of what used to be warehouse space on the canal. The food is beautifully presented, and with heavy emphasis on seafood and fresh provides a fantastic antidote to the typical German cuisine focused on meat and potatoes. I can't speak to value...

We were 40 people and everything was fantastic. I really liked the food and the way they serve it. The people are really friendly and well educated. Everything was perfect after a tiring exhibition of SMM.

We enjoyed a very delicious meal, the staff was super friendly and courteous. I literally had the best fillet of beef ever served. Location and look and feel of Vlet are cool and modern, but in a welcoming way.

Stumbled across this restaurant while walking through the Hafen City district (dockside re-development). It has a nice setting in one of the redeveloped warehouses alongside a canal. The ambience is spacious and modern and the service is good, if a little careless. The dishes are nicely assembled and flavoursome. The wine list is very good - dominated by German wines,... More

Vlet is located in the Hafencity of Hamburg and has a very interesting menu concept of German northern cuisine. For my taste the place is little cold, but somewhat it goes with personality of Hamburg. I do not eat fish so I did get the steak tartar which was mixed by the server in front of my eyes and was...

Loved the fact that the ceilings are so high and atmosphere open and inviting. The service is simply very professional without being stiff or overdone. The loft style of the old warehouse on the canal (Vlet, in Old German, I think) re-done into the restaurant makes the experience pretty cool. We had a gourmet menu, with the accompanying wine menu--matched... More
