They sat me at the Chef’s table, so I had to have the Fall Tasting Menu, which blew my mind. 13 courses and they all built and went so well together. I had rare dishes they had flown in from around the world. Viesturs was...amazing and so much fun as he ran a smooth kitchen inches away. I had a few extra courses after watching him perfectly prepare wagyu all evening. They specialize in sea food, but the wagyu is exceptional. Julia is a magical server and maybe the most knowledge of the food from anywhere I’ve eaten. Kaspers is a brilliant sommelier who will gracefully navigate your entire culinary experience. Barents exposes every one of your senses as you experience new aspects of food and eating you never knew existed. Eat here with an open mind and heart and you will always remember it.

200% recommended for intelligent atmosphere, excellent service and authentic seafood - seascallop tartare is just soo superb!! Being quite picky on clams and scallops - this is my new absolute favorite place! They have mastered to present the genuine taste of each selected ingredient in...most explorational manner. All that in such top-notch environment - not too loud, not too mere, just the perfect balance. Thank you for such inspiration and divine seafood out there!! always perfect! P.s. Love the update of serving Chefs table experience at home and chef's videos, great newsl!More

It was a wonderful evening with my colleague and business partners. As far as partners were not locals the waiter explained each food in 3 languages. Service inconspicuous, explanations about the food were exciting and informative. The meal was a wonderful, tasty and new experience.
