Extremely good food with nice wine pairings. The best one star neonordic restaurant I have been to, superior to some in Copenhagen. Champagne, coffee and set menu with wine and extras cost 300 euro, well worth it.

A strong effort to source local and organic original products, an incredible technique serving a wonderful five senses experience, a smart wine pairing selection. Fans of "gastronomy" should not miss this sensual journey that certainly deserves a second star. Some stared french chefs must go as well to discover this association between creativity and sensuality.... Congratulations to the whole team!

I've never been to a Michelin Star restaurant before. Mainly because I'm not a meat eater. This can cause all sorts of issues when eating out at a high end place. What a breath of fresh air Ask is. Beautifully presented, organic, local, inventive and above all delicious food. The service is second to none. What a fabulous experience for someone who is usually frowned upon by elite dining. Thank you for a fabulous experience.

To make it short, the restaurant is great! Thanks to Michelin guide for recommending it, otherwise I would not find it, restaurant is on the quiet street near University, and looks like modest Scandinavian café. From the first step I felt as a welcome guest and decided to eat in Ask at least one more time this year. Set menu is sophisticated but made mostly from local ingredients and it was amazing to eat rather usual food like salmon, pork or deer but cooked the way which brought new taste with the special combination of sauces, oil and greens. The specifically important thing for me was that after all the courses I did not get the feeling of eating too much, though I was not hungry after lunch until late evening. I do not know, probably the experience will be totally different with the dinner, but I do wish to try.

Some dishes did hit the right mark but then .... overall I would say take it or leave it, particularly if you have limited nights in Helsinki, there are many more value for money options. Desserts were a highlight for us.
