We were 7 of us celebrating our son's 11th birthday. Three of our group were vegiterrian. The restaurant prepared us a 22 course menu !! Even for the vegiterrians !!! We were floored by the service and the food was absolutely amazing. Definitely the best we have had so far... they even gave my son an amazing surprise. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Copenhagen.

My wife and I have dined at some wonderful restaurants in different parts of the world, but our dining experience at Geranium is the best we have had. We went for lunch and there is a choice of two or three hour menus. We had the three hour extravaganza on the basis this was a once off experience. I also had the wine accompaniment.
In statistical terms we had 9 taste starters, followed by 13 dishes, bread and butter and a Bonbon on leaving. Everyone of these was a taste sensation. I also had 8 different wines and apple juice infused with Chamomile. My wife had an endless supply of sparkling water.
The serving and presentation of each dish is a theatrical experience performed by the very friendly staff who explain each dish which in every case is visually stunning and exciting in taste. The wines are carefully selected to provide ideal support for the food.
Towards the end you are invited into the plating area of the kitchen and have an opportunity to discuss with one of the chefs. At all times you are made to feel most welcome, and there is a seamless delivery of dishes and serving of the wine and water.
We left feeling well satisfied, and not having dined nor imbibed to excess.
Do not dine at Geranium if you are concerned about cost, but do dine there if you want an experience you will not forget. Finally, a tip: the taste starters are all eaten by hand. A hand towel is not supplied until you have finished these.

Me and my partner booked this lunch a couple of months ago and were very much looking forward to it but it completely exceeded are expectations. We went for the two hour lunch menu which was plenty and we left very full. The food was some of the best I have ever eaten and the service was brilliant, very friendly and welcoming. The best part of the whole experience was the first dessert we got to eat in the kitchen!! They take you into there and watch all the chiefs cooking and preparing plates, it was an amazing restaurant!! I highly recommend if you go to Copenhagen that you visit Geranium

One of the best meals we have ever had. Top notch food and service unmatched by few others in the world. Inventive flavor combinations very skillfully prepared, presented and explained. There was not a single dull morsel over the 16+ courses for lunch. If you're lucky enough to have secured a reservation, you are in for a gastronomic treat of the highest order. We would advise adding the wine pairing vs. picking glasses/bottles from their extensive list - sit back and enjoy the experience, they're professionals at this. I only wish they would have been a tad more generous with the wine pours (they were all excellent)!

This is the OTHER Michelin 2-star restaurant (2014) in Copenhagen, and Noma happened to be closed for summer break during our visit. So we booked dinner here, knowing very little about it. The setting is a little unusual, up on the 8th floor of an athletic stadium with views of both part of Copenhagen (not the central part) and a running track, but the interior was very nice and probably more spacious than most top restaurants. We had an outstanding view of the kitchen, which was only separated from the dining room by a partial glass wall. The dinner started with a rapid-fire series of “snacks,” followed by the extensive tasting menu. The dishes were amazingly creative, often works of art, but still delicious. They even invited guests to meet the chefs and actually have one of the courses in the kitchen! Service was friendly, yet very professional and polished. They made you truly felt welcome. We chose the juice pairings instead of the wine pairings since we don’t drink, and they were wonderfully unique and complemented the food well. Despite the large number of dishes, we were not overstuffed at the end like one can be at many of these top restaurants. The experience was certainly not inexpensive, but for a perhaps once in a lifetime visit to Copenhagen, it was well worth it to us.
