we had birthday celebration dinner in Ask (4 adults + 1 teen) and we loved it! Organic food from nearby places with excellent presentation. Dinner lasted 3,5 hours - so, do reserve enough time! Service was excellent. We loved that this restaurant is really concentrated in organic - even towels in WC were made of organic fabric. But this is... More

Celebrated my boyfriends birthday. The service was exceptional and very kind. The food and menu was well thought out and every set up was a piece of art work! The whole dining can be compared to a masterpiece symphony with an exciting beginning, accelerating mid and joyful ending! Exciting with ingredients from the very Finnish nature and local production. Loved... More

The restaurant Ask was full on the Saturday night we arrived, quite a nice atmosphere. It was a tasting menu which we are not lovers of, we went ahead but we decided not to go for the wine tasting for each course. We ordered a bottle of Vecchio instead, which was out of stock so we went with a Sancerre.... More

I made a dinner reservation for three persons through the restaurants website. I recieved confirmations by both email and textmessages, including warnings of charges for noshow. We visited the restaurant on a Tuesday, and there were only a few other guests when we came. The restaurant is small and cosy, the service was fast, efficient and friendly. The dinner was... More

We had an evening meal here, the quality of food and standard of service can't be faulted. It's a set menu of 8 dishes, plus a few extras. Quantity of each dish is tiny but tasty. 89 euro each plus drinks, so over 200euro so not cheap. The format did not suit us so we wouldn't rush back, but if... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Ask. The service was fabulous, the menu inventive and delicious, and the atmosphere intimate and welcoming. The staff showed such pride presenting the dishes and we were amazed at how easily we spent over four hours there. Such a treat.

Great restaurant, excellent service and very nice atmosphere. Some dishes too experimental for the sake of experimenting. Not impressive if it does not really give you a special taste or something unique. That said most of the dishes were great. I would go back, but I would try the other Michelin restaurants in Helsinki first...
