We went there and they said that had no table and that probably after 15-30 min would have one. We agreed that we walk and return back. When we returned they said the same story. We sat outside in a table and waited for more than 40 minutes. When we asked them again they said that are not responsible for the delay that was our decision and they still don't know how long we will wait. We left the place it was 10pm.
Terrible behavior.

We were hoping for a window spot, but unfortunatly got one at the bar. But it turned out to be a great way, to always be near the water!

Really enjoying the "we don't have starters and mains" menu (even though you could tell there was a certain order) we ordered different kinds of courses that sounded exciting. Mostly the food was minimalistic, but it tasted fantastic and was beautifully prepared.
The drinks you've never heard off before, because it's their very own, tasted very nice and is served in beautiful crystal glasses.

The only downside was the seats, which meant sitting really close to your neighbor in the bar or in a kind off noisy hall room.
As a final touch, the dessert was a candyfloss on a steal flower decorated with grated raw licorice - Mm!

So if you have the money, I think it is really worth the experience.

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening. The menu is quite short but intriguing. You may well need to take advice from the very helpful staff on what to order as there are a lot of unusual ingredients. Each course is fairly small. We were advised to order 3 or more dishes from the savoury pages. We took two each and then ordered from the equally fascinating dessert pages. I wasn't paying the bill, but I think it was reasonable (especially for Copenhagen).

This is currently one of the in-restaurants in Copenhagen and rightfully so. It is a place with a restaurant section, a huge food bar around the kitchen and a bar for drinks only. The food is excellent and the atmosphere really nice. Staff is dressed very informal and acts accordingly bit in a truly nice and friendly way.
When you are a party of two, max. three I suggest the food bar.

Tried Geist on a recent holiday to Copenhagen and was very memorable. The setting is very dark and clean, with diners sat around a bar facing in to the open kitchen. The pressure on the chefs to keep everything clean and calm amazed me.
As a pescatarian, there was plenty fish on order and I was so pleased with my choices. The avocado and caviar to start was just the right size - high quality ingredients are clearly used which justifies the prices. I then had the crab with mash which was so tasty. Everything is clearly well thought out from the wine list, to the seating, to the great service. To top it all off they serve candy floss with coffee!
It is expensive but definitely worth splasing out on. Copenhagen pride themselves on great food using quality ingredients, and this leading restaurant definitely didn't disappoint.
