We loved the foodin this place! And the restaurant is nicely decorated and inviting. We had a vreat night but had some communication problems (we are norwegian so should't be a problem). When norwegian didn't work we tried english, but still one of the staff didn't understand. Sometimes itwas also har to get in touch with the staff and we had to wait a bit. Still give it a good score because of the nice food!

It is not, that I disliked this restaurant, I did not. It was fairly good, but all in all much closer to ordinary than fantastic and most of all: the portions were all rather small. Was it not for the lovely homemade rye bread, I believe, we would have starved or at least left hungry.

We enjoyed the menu with the first serving being scallops followed by duck breast and then a dessert created of walnuts, ice cream, porridge, pears, foam and cinnamon which was probably meant to look like the famous Danish Christmas dessert "Ris a la mande". The taste was even close.
It is a kitchen using Nordic ingredients and I think it worked okay, but I surely missed the "wow" factor.

When we arrived, it was pretty cold in the dining room. It heated up when the restaurant started getting fully occupied, but it wasn't that cozy.

A top performance from Höst! Beautifully prepared and served nouveau Scandinavian cuisine. We went for the 'Night at Höst' which included altogether 6 courses and wines to go with them and coffee to finish off with. All of it was absolutely splendid. Interesting flavour and texture combinations. The service was very relaxed and pleasant. The price was more than reasonable for the experience. Would have visited again if had the time. Definitely coming back to Copenhagen and most definitely visiting Höst again.

Enter a huge restored/renovated (very old) paint store, maneuver through white-walled rooms and descend narrow stairs - we were already intrigued. The 'party room' reserved for our group (12 people) was a perfect setting for 'catching-up' conversation. But - OH - the food we ate. That was truly special. Each bite of everything was a true mouth-adventure. Aroma, taste, texture ... impossible to even think of eating too quickly. Each mouthful was so amazing. Two Amuse-bouche offerings (beets, beef), a soup with triple-themed Jerusalem artichokes, something with scallops (yum), a beef-offering, spot-on wine pairings with each course, a luxury dessert. Very helpful staff explained each course. We all left satisfied (and not stuffed) - and the price was absolutely beyond fair.
