“A pleasant evening”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We were three people going for a seven course dinner, including wine menue.
It was a pleasant welcome, a good table and an exciting menue. We enjoyed the evening, even if we had a feeling that the waitress was very bussy and had not time to give us the extra little chat/comments that makes you feel beeing taken care of. The chef and his/her team had done a good job. Every dish was well presented and tasted fine, but we felt that the main dish, the lamb, lacked something.
Feinschmecker had for 19 years a Michelin star, but lost it this year. I think the team has to work hard to the star back.

“Good but not perfect”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

After having experienced a perfect evening at hos Thea the day before, my expectations for Feinschmecker were very high, too high I assume. The half dozen oysters were alright, close to freezing temperature and somehow not as fresh as he ones I ate 2 days before in a restaurant close to the harbor. I repeat they were alright (not bad). The turbot itself was perfect, the sauce and chanterelles too salty. Here again, it was not bad but by far not perfect. The desert wasn't too special either. The coffee came out of nespresso machine. The set up is nice, the atmosphere Very Formal, the service was average, boring. The crew performed their duty in a robotic way, nothing special, no fun.
All by all by far not worth the amount paid

“Classy restaurant and delicious food”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Had a very nice dinner at this restaurant. Food was tasty, and the wine menu was specially tailored for each course. Suitable for business, celebration, friends, dates and people with a lot of money who like good food.

“still a well kept secret in Oslo...”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

from the limited amount of reviews, I can gather that this restaurant is still a well-kept secret in Oslo. we had white asparagus with hollandaise sauce - delicate and superb; fried foie grass - melts in your mouth; grilled crayfish tail - you will go back again and again for this one; wild boar in cranberry red wine reduction - a seasonal delicacy; poached veal shiitake mushrooms - the best veal I've had (and I always order veal of on the menu); our deserts included milk chocolate and pineapple coconut ice cream with passion fruit gelee - have it and your life will be changed forever. wines included the sommelier's recommendations of red bourgonne and a desert wine of note.
ask your waiter for wines he would recommend with each dish - he is knowledgable.

Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is one of Oslos finest restaurants. The menu contains traditional international dishes, made with a Michelin touch.
