“Good restaurant- great location”
Reviewed September 7, 2011

The location in Hamburg's "Speicherstadt" is simply unique and left us impressed. The food was inventive, but did not blow us away. Neither did the service, which was friendly, but unhurried. The manager told me after mentioning that we had be waiting for over 40 minutes for our food to arrive simply: "oh, it will be there just now, we had a group". No apology was offered. Do they teach German restaurateurs how to provide good efficient service? I wonder... Toilet facilities were clean, but the room was not terribly well- lit. I might recommend this place for a quick business lunch, but definitely not as a romantic get- away.
A very positive aspect of Vlet restaurant however, was the price. 20 € for lunch is not bad at all.

“If this restaurant was a car, it would be an Audi”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

Celebrated our anniversary there. Walked to the Harbour from the city - rather a desolate area still and restaurant tricky to find as it is a warehouse within the renewed Hafen-City area. Once there, was efficiently seated and served, service was clockwork and meticulous hence the Audi analogy - all worked beautifully and purred along smoothly - perhaps more efficient than friendly but no complaints. The tasting menu was upmarket North German food with weird touches like cigar leaves in the soup, and goat that tasted like ham, but faultless and surprisingly delicious and satisfying. Particularly the desserts which were not over-sweet with subtle flavours. A memorable meal.

“Do Not Miss Vlet”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

August 31, 2011 first visit to Vlet, in warehouse on a canal near port. Food, service, ambience were outstanding, equivalent of any in NYC, Chicago, LA, Stockholm, London, etc. from our perspective. Exceeded expectations in menu offerings, presentation, use of fresh ingredients and execution in the kitchen. Service was unassuming, pleasant, and thoroughly professional. Host/owner was exemplary, and justifiably proud. Cost: about 200E per couple, including abundant wine and liquor.

“Absolutely superb”
Reviewed August 18, 2011

First rate in terms of food, service and environment and one of the best dining experiences we have had in Hamburg. The quality of ingredients was just fantastic, and every dish was beautifully prepared and presented. I cannot fault it on any level.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

Most certainly the best table I have been in Hamburg. The food is prepared with an attention to using local products. Everything on the menu is exciting and tasteful. They have a very decent wine list that marries well with the dishes. The service is also very very good. Finally, you cannot finish a meal there without tasting their Grappa! It comes on a very special alcohol cart and the selection is out of this world. A must go for anyone travelling thru Hamburg.
