Food: 4/5 Service: 5/5 Ambiance: 3/5 Noise Level: Moderate-Low The restaurant itself is very unassuming and can be easily missed, since there is not a single visible sign pointing to Aska. The front portion is a garage-style bar, which operates separately from Aska (as in they serve different menu, though bills can be carried over from the bar to the "restaurant"), though the bar does offer food item and shares the same kitchen with Aska. The "restaurant" itself (technically it's just a small sitting area in the back of the bar) seats about 20 max, and serves only tasting menu (7-or 10-course). To be honest, the seats here are somewhat uncomfortable - the chair is too low to the table, and the bench is a bit too high and shallow. Several of my friends and I had to get up and stretch a few times over the 4.5-hour dinner service. Food-wise, there were some very creative dish here. We went for the 10-course tasting menu, but counting all the amuse bouche and complimentary sides, it ended up more like a 15-course menu. While the portion is typically bite-size, save for a few bigger-portion meat courses, there are certainly enough food that you will not leave hungry. Each dish offers some unique mix of flavors (and most dish pack some heavy flavors) or texture. The cauliflower + skate and onion, oates and rapeseed dish were two of my favorites. If you have any dietary concern (we had a vegetarian in our group), they will substitute the course with something else that is equally tasty and creative (granted the price will remain the same). Oh, and don't skip over their bread basket! The house-made butter and the salted chips were absolutely delicious! Service here is top notch. The staffs are very friendly and courteous. The chefs will also come to table-side to put in some finishing touches and explain the course (I had trouble understanding them most of the time through the accent, but that's probably just me). Although the bar got very lively at around midnight, the noise level for the most part is moderate-to-low, and you can easily carry out a conversation at the table.

Wonderful creative and almost surreal Scandinavian foraging experience. Not sure about the industrial decor but with food this good who cares?

The most creative pairing dinner in town. Brilliant chef, excellent presentation, one, cozy, seating on the weekends. The bar in the front is hopping with good reason. Excellent and interesting wine and acquavit selections.

Seriously one of the most amazing meals I've ever had... ever. The 7-couse tasting is so unique. It's Scandinavian food that seems very simple, but they pair flavor in unexpected ways, and when paired with their wine list, it's mind blowingly good. Get a cocktail too. I tried an Aquavit-Molasses-Kombucha mixture that was fab.

Innovative, delicious and beautifully plated meals and bar snacks join hands with an exceptional, envelope pushing bar. Intrepid diners will find foraged ingredients and local ingredients and wonderfully married ancient and modern techniques. Psst: This place may seem contemplative at 8 or 9 pm, but come midnight, it's packed with dozens of pretty young things dancing to the DJ

Despite good service food was disappointing. Can the serve anything that does not grow underground? What is it their obsession with beets?
