“Great for a special meal, but not for every day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This place is excellent, but it really has to be an occasional treat. Not only will you leave stuffed, but the food is often peculiar, with molecular gastronomy and unusual combinations being commonplace. You pretty much have to have a tasting menu, where you select themes and not dishes, and also provide dietary restrictions or preferences. In addition to the main plates, you will receive 1-2 amuse bouches between them. Another great thing about 11 Madison is that it is right next to Madison park, so you can stroll through the small but pretty park after you have an excellent meal. I want to go back but I have to wait. The meal is too special to be a regular thing. I

“Top 2 or 3 dinner ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Having been to Arzak (San Sebastian), Daniels and Ramsey at the London (NYC), Geranium and NOMA (Copenhagen) within the last few years plus a number of very good other one and two star restaurants around the US, Beijing, Europe and especially here in the now trending Copenhagen, we were coming to Eleven Madison Park with high expectations. We were not let down.

In creativity EMP in some courses rivals NOMA, but without ever losing sight of the fancyful creations having to be tasteful. An ingenious mix. And yes - the raw carrot being prepared at the table (critizised by several Tripadvisor reviewers) is actually one of the courses that gets EMP close to NOMA, even though I have to admit that the serving didn't get have enough taste.

Adding to this is the fantastic ambience of the room with the huge windows, combined with a relaxed but flawless service (and this goes especially for the sommerlier, whose knowledge and match of wines was impeccable).

Yes, this restaurant is a trending, modern restaurant, thats very close to the modern Scandinavian cuisine. If you want an "old school" 3 star dinner of high quality go to for example Daniel.

All in all this dinner goes into the top 3 if not top 2 of all time.

“Extraordinary!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Eleven Madison Park has the most stunning venue, friendly (not too formal) service, best atmosphere, smashing cocktails and the coolest menu of all restaurants I know! The food is very, very good, but would get 2, not 3 stars in Europe. I am so happy I've been here!
