Reviewed September 26, 2013

Interesting menu. We had herring starters, mussels and cod. Great decor, with an intimate setting- lucky to get a table window. Some close by restaurants were really noisy. Service was very good, patient, responsive. Recommend for a comfortable evening with good food.

“Excellent in every way!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Delicious food, a lot of ingredients are grown at their own farm which is awsome. Really cozy athmosphere, waiting staff provided outstanding service. A great experience! Also, prices were totally reasonable. Recommended!

“Very nice Scandinavian restaurant in the Village”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We fell upon the West Village branch of this Scandinavian 3-branch chain by accident. Looking for somewhere small in the Village to make the most of a pleasant NY summer evening outside, we spied a spare table with just a cursory glance at the menu. What a pleasant surprise! Imaginative Scandinavian cuisine, very friendly service and a nice location. Definitely recommended.

“Delicious, with a great presentation”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

As a vegetarian, I don't always have a lot of choices on the menu. But at Smorgas Chef I had a chilled cucumber soup and a delicious carmelized cauliflower with barley and egg. Yum! Desserts were also excellent

“Pretty good, not great”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

The salads were spectacular but the main dishes generally disappointing. The Swedish meatballs were just OK.
