“Great food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Very good and interesting food - the usual three courses were quite enough for us. Reasonably priced wine list by Copenhagen standards. Bit annoying to be charged 35kr (£4) per bottle of fizzy tap water which came unsolicited. Staff were friendly. Good atmosphere/décor. Recommend Jerusalem artichokes.

“Beautiful venue, nice atmosphere, great service, strange food served in stingy portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Geist is a very trendy and happening place. The service is superb and the staff are very friendly. I was here with a group of 30 for a business dinner. We had a fixed menu, which comprised a salmon roe appetizer, pork belly main and chocolate parfait dessert. The first and the last were delicious. The pork belly was awful -- I almost gagged. The stingy portions are barely sufficient for a small child. I left hungry, which seems ludicrous for a restaurant. Like most restaurants in Copenhagen, the prices were outrageous.

“On the edge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Superb food, innovative. Nice buzz. Recommend for people who olike to try new food, new combinations in great atmosphere. Get a table at the bar to enjoy the serious business going on in the open kitchen. Master chef handles his food lika newborn baby when putting it on the dishes,,, loved it.

“Nice interior but the food is average and portions very small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I visited Geist in the summer of 2012. It was good and I enjoyed the food, but given Copenhagen's abundance in good restaurants, this should not be number one on your list. The portions are quite small and although the are relatively tasty, I have had better. The service and interior on the other hand is noce, which brings the overall experience to an average.

“Classy gourmet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The food was good, presented in a gourmet manner. Decoration of the place and style very nice, rather youngish club-style. Staff friendly.
