Treated my father to a dinner at the restaurant, but started with drinks in the very quint and well-furnished bar (knows which condiments go with which type of gin). In the restaurant our sommelier took us familiarly through the lovely tasting menu that was varied, tasteful, exquisitely presented and sometimes surprising and with equally delicate wines to match. I remember... More

The restaurant feels a lot more casual then other restaurants at this level. Every course was a highlight. They let the food speak for itself without much "noise" around it. Service was great too. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Spent a romantic dinner for 2 here and were very much happy - great food (we had dinner menu for 2) and wine selection (waiter recommended perfect fit to dishes). Staff was friendly and attentive without being too eager. Though restaurant was fully booked (friendly advice: book at least 2 weeks in advance), we had not the impression it was... More

Nice service, great food. Also beautiful location directly at the Elbe, somewhat off the center of Hamburg. I also found the food appropriately priced. I very much liked they had a children menu. The only negative point was the aperitif; they offered verbally various alternatives, we ordered a glass of champagne (my wife had birthday) and at the end of... More

This is how a top-notch Michelin star rated restaurant should be: amazing food, extremely good service and good location. We have already eaten there three times, and every single one was absolutely worth the fat bill that we got (more than 100€ per person)

It's a two start Michelin and we did have some expectations. We were greeted attentively and the service was always discreetly present but never bothering. Food was very good and the first course (forelle) and (dessert) ile flottante were magnificent in execution and aesthetics. The goat (Bock) that made the main course was very good, but did not leave a... More

Fantastic service and wonderful food. Detailed, delicate and satisfying. Although a bit stuffy and old fashioned, the place is friendly and warm. Expensive but highly recommendable.

Jacobs is a classic gourmet restaurant serving creative, refined but uncomplicated French cuisine. We chose the menu "Thomas Martin" and "Jacob" by limiting us to five dishes (tyou can go up to six, but do not forget that you will get the appetizer, the specialty breads and sweets trolley ... on top of the dishes). All proposals were delicious and... More

My wife and I spent an amazing evening at Jacobs to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The setting, food, atmosphere and staff were simply perfect. The whole evening was perfection, from the welcome and canapés in the bar, through the multi-course menu which delivered even more than the menu promised. Each dish was beautifully presented and delightfully cooked and just the... More

Had dinner here twice in January 2016 -- absolute elegance and the most incredible food. Excellent service, a beautiful room that overlooks the Elbe...it is a unique experience and worth every penny. Recommend the chef's tasting menu as the flavors are perfectly composed on each course; the accompanying wine pairings were excellent -- kudos to the sommelier!

Thank Anne9878

Wine bottles as far as the eye can see. The Kleines Jacob is more than just an offshoot of the top restaurant that lies opposite! The restaurant has an open-view kitchen with a stone oven, producing exquisite food, such as Flammkuchen. The staff are exceptionally friendly and give you all the time you need to enjoy your meal. Admire the walls which are decorated in cork and art work or sit and enjoy a cigarette in the large smokers' area. The restaurant is popular with hotel guests and anyone out walking along the banks of the river Elbe in Blankenese. The restaurant also offers a selection of European wine.
