We visited as part of a Christmas weekend visit to Copenhagen.
We selected this restaurant based upon reviews and Michelin status.
It was a fantastic culinary experience. A fixed taster menu, all of which was excellent. Veal was replaced with chicken where requested. We declined the wine pairing option, mainly based upon very high prices.
The service was good with each course and wine being introduced to us in intricate and interesting detail.
At this price and with this reputation I would expect everything to be perfect. Some of the courses came out luke warm or served on very cold plates. Our feedback was not well received or handled, prompting further feedback. Subsequent courses were served at better temperatures.
With a most welcome gesture, our bill was significantly reduced, and we left having very much enjoyed the food and the experience, a little disappointed at the shortcomings, but pleased with the gesture of goodwill. Would i go back? No, there are so many other great restaurants to choose from, and this was not sufficiently perfect to entice us back

All our expectations were fullfilled when my wife and I at last this fall could find an opportunity to visit the famous italian restaurant Era Ora in Copenhagen. The meny was a fait accompli for this evening only, but what a menu. You had a feeling of being on the highest top of Italian cousine and when adding the wine menu, you were in heaven. I only once criticised a glass of wine, a brunello, but the sommelier only smiled and brought a new brunello from another producer to the table, saying: This is the kind of brunello you prefer. And he was of course right and could explain to us why it was so. This was top service and unforgettable.

Nice location, lovely room, very service-minded, efficient, friendly and competent staff. The food concept is a lot of small dishes in stead of just one starter, one main course and a dessert. Very alround, very smart and the eye gets as much satisfaction as the stomach. It is not a place you just pop into every once in a while. It definitely is a place you treat yourself to once in a blue moon, but the experience is super whenever you go for it.

A night at Era Ora is an adventure that is second to none for food lovers; a culinary journey through an expertly curated tasting menu with a staff that is both friendly and multi-lingual as your guides. You won’t find a menu here but will, instead be offered chef-chosen selections of expertly prepared seasonal cuisine. The service was absolutely flawless.
Upon our arrival, we were welcomed with a glass of wonderful wine, and a started on an evening that was a succession of tantalizing delights one after another. The food was delicious: flavorful, fresh and unique; while the wine was beautifully paired and magnificent.
Being a vegetarian and often running into issues with requests not being honored, I must point out that the staff immediately asked the table if we had any allergies or preferences, and honored them throughout the evening, course after course.
Era Ora is a dining experience I would recommend to anyone visiting Copenhagen looking for a dining experience to remember

Liked....everything......disliked.....finishing my meal and leaving!
This place is fantastic...we had a 14 course special menu with a different wine for each course. Not cheap....but high quality rarely is. You pay for what you get...which in this case was an extremely high class and unforgettable dining experience. The waiter introduced each course and wine giving all the relevant detail of the food, it's background and the year and region of each wine. The service was second to none. Superb!
