Food and drink
First the wine. With leading sommeliers to hand (and also sommelier founders) you'd expect a good list and so it proves. It's strongest on French wines with lots of classics and a few inside-track wines for wine geeks, such as an amazing Cote Rotie. The food is not just an excuse to indulge in wine though. The quality is as high on your plate as they are in your glass.
Expect well turned out dishes such as a classic bisque, suckling pig and crepes suzette.
The old French posters and other period signifiers feel a bit phoney - like they might have been shipped en-masse off a container from some Chinese memorabilia factory but having said that, this is a relaxed, spacious and appealing dining room.
The service is silky smooth, like a fine Bordeaux.
Tucked just down the road from Amelienborg, Le Sommelier is in a quiet but posh corner of town, a fact reflected by the well-to-do diners.
The food and wine pairing menu is worth considering coming in at 900 krone for four courses. Not a bargain perhaps but reasonable value given the standards.
