I've been here with friends, colleagues and family several times. It is never disappointing - great food based on Finnish specialities. The staff is kind and professional, discreet but attentive. We had some problems with our order last time, but the waitress was friendly to sort it out. The starters and main courses were top notch, as always. Portions are... More

9-10/10 on food, wines, presentation of dishes, courteous and attentive service with light and friendly attitude, beautiful scenery to the Esplanade park and its historical buildings... Thank you for hosting a perfect business dinner.

The most beautiful Finnish food, and setting, this restaurant is a special destination for a memorable meal. Sublime service which is formal but not stuffy, the food is a delicate mix of Finnish ingredients cooked and presented in a careful and distinctive way. The gin and tonic served is lethal but stunnng. Unforgettable.

The restaurant has been part of the Finnish history since 1937. It was born into middle of Finnish industrialisation and their leaders. Famous Finnish designers Aino and Alvar Aalto have designed its classical look and decorations. Location at 8th floor offers nice view to the Esplanade park. We had there their autumn menu, fish as a starter and mallard as... More

We ate here as a capstone to a two week family trip through the Baltics and Russia, and we were not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed the Summer Tasting Menu, with excellent wine pairings. Truly wonderful food beautifully presented. We sat on the balcony, where it was daylight until after 10pm. They took good care of our young kids, too. However,... More

We took our chances and showed up for an early dinner at 6 pm. They did not have a city view table available, but one that overlooked the solarium. I have a great appreciation for the Finnish designer of the 1930's Alvar Aalto. His Savoy vase is found at every table with flowers. His lamps and other lighting adorn the... More

For architects and those who love good service and food you have to come to the 8th floor and enjoy this special combination. In addition, obviously great view over Helsinki. Even so one can feel that the building might need an uplift one can feel the brilliant architect and design from Alvar Alto from the toilets to the lamps and... More

If booking I advise you to request a table on the indoor roof terrace where your meal will be complemented by some stunning panoramic city views. The restaurant itself has much history, opened around 1930, the pictures in the lobby area indicate that the style has not changed much. This is a fine dining restaurant and the staff deliver it...

Great history to this place. The food was very good. Service was lacking warmth but was very efficient. Its a little touristy and guys on business etc, but the restaurant is stunning. A must visit when in Helsinki

BY any stroke of the imagination, the Savoy is not what I expected in Helsinki. the restaurant is located on the top floor of the building and overlooks the central square. There is both inside dining and outside dining, but of course, the outside area is probably only open in the summers. the service is masterful and elegant with multiple... More
