We booked our table online on their website which was easy enough.

Have given the restaurant 4 stars over 3 and half because it is well priced for Copenhagen, for decent quality and quantity of food. And that is not easy in this expensive, no exorbitant city.

We had a frozen passion fruit daiquiri which was a nice, a bit sweeter would have been nicer and a glass of Malbec which was really nice.

We had the full rib rack which was very good, but if you have eaten ribs in the states, then nothing unusual. The meat just falls off the bone and is not doused with sauce which can really ruin the dish. The mash potatoes served with it were divine, the best I have ever had!
The crab cakes were fresh and did not have a thick crust so you could actually taste the meat which is rare.

Dessert was the Nanaimo Bar which was very nice but not " to die for".

The decor is warm, wooden and cosy, not the usual packed tables one is used to.
Service was very very good, considering many tables were full, not as bad a Friday or sat night I am sure, but nevertheless there was one person managing it all and did a super job.

Would go back if I lived here, for it is an all rounder , although not sure of being rated 20 of 1400 odd restaurants, but then again unless one has tried a ton of them who's to say in a city as expensive as this.

This was our first stop for dinner in Copenhagen. So glad we picked Tight. Good food, service and atmosphere. A wide selection and we were not disappointed. Wish we had dinner there every evening whilst visiting. Definitely worth a visit!

We chose Tight as at a middle-of-the-road restaurant that seemed to have an urban bistro atmosphere similar to what we'd choose in an American city. The menu is varied with a variety of choices to please everyone. We are not overly fond of Eastern European cuisine (lots of butter, mayonnaise, sour cream), so Tight was a great choice. The meat dishes are of higher quality than things like the seafood pasta, but the mussels were a good choice. The restaurant was very accommodating with our reservation, which we booked with an email online. We arrived a little early and were still seated promptly. Tight is a great choice for tourists who don't want a forgettable tourist restaurant, but are unsure about going to a pricey restaurant or one with unfamiliar dishes.

Tight is a popular and centrally located restaurant, however it does not live up to the rave reviews it has received. While there is something for everyone on the menu, and the food is competently prepared with generous portions, the cooking is unimaginative and somewhat pedestrian. The oft-quoted reasonable prices are a reflection of food that is prepared with little innovation or flair. On the plus side, service was friendly and professional even if the server had too many tables to handle. The on-line booking service is also very good.

Food and service were wonderful. Shared crabcake 1st course, then he had mussels and i had seafood pasta. Both were wonderfully and differently seasoned. Dessert was creme brûlée. Only problem was heat. No AC and no cross ventilation. Maybe some fans would help.
