Nordic
Welcome to Aquavit London, a new Nordic morning-to-midnight dining experience inspired by the highly acclaimed two Michelin star sister restaurant in New York but with a more informal setting. Dishes at Aquavit London honour fresh, seasonal ingredients and deliver a contemporary take on authentic Nordic cuisine, with menus developed by Henrik Ritzén, Executive Chef of Aquavit London, and Emma Bengtsson, Executive Chef of Aquavit New York. Overseen by the design studio of Swedish-born Martin Brudnizki (The Ivy, Scott’s and Sexy Fish), Aquavit London has been inspired by Gunnar Asplund’s design of Gothenburg City Hall in Sweden, and the restaurant showcases celebrated Nordic designers in a laid-back yet sophisticated environment.

Stylish restaurant, modern but inviting. Service very good, upmarket experience overall. Food was good, rather Scandy, as you would expect. Poached cod had a lovely texture- very soft, good vegetables. Celeriac soup with truffles rich and flavourful. Cod could have been a bit more vibrant overall perhaps but I will go back.

I would recommend this restuarant for a premium lunch. It is located on a discreet side street in central london near Piccadilly Circus. The front of house staff are welcoming and professional. Lunch is served promptly at your table, however this is not the place for a quick 30 minute lunch it is a place to enjoy your lunch experience either alone, with guests or colleagues. It should be also noted that there are a small number of outside tables and a separate small bar indoors, so if you are after a tea/coffee in a busy central London location this is a nice place.

Eating at Aquavit was a very nice Swedish experience. The service was great, the food delicious. A good wine list.

Great original food and excellent service. Extremely helpful waitress who explained everything and found gluten free options. Nothing was too much trouble. Nice relaxed quiet ambience if a little sterile.

The weekend set menu is one of the best value deals in London. Top quality food in a relaxed environment at a very reasonable price

Incredible food, great representation of some of Sweden’s most popular dishes. The only letdown was the table cloths, which I still don’t understand

I’m so disappointed. I loved Aquavit. We even celebrated my 40th here in a private room.
I keep going back convinced that The one bad experience was a one off.
But the last 2 visits have been really poor compared to the high standards you set yourselves.
