Restaurant Aquavit opened to immediate success in midtown Manhattan in November 1987. More than two decades later, Aquavit continues to be one of New York's most popular and highly esteemed dining destinations.

A pioneer on the American dining scene, Aquavit remains the only world-class modern Scandinavian restaurant in the country, and was also the first restaurant in New York to house two concepts under one roof: a casual bistro serving hearty, simple fare and a formal dining room offering refined, modern Scandinavian cuisine.

Owner Håkan Swahn has always been involved with every aspect of the business, and his passion and vision are what steer the restaurant. Executive Chef Marcus Jernmark is in the kitchen every day, where his talent and his commitment to quality and authenticity are apparent in every ingredient he purchases and every dish he prepares. Swahn and Jernmark collaborate closely on Aquavit's menus, and together they provide leadership and inspiration to the team at Aquavit.

  • (((** 15 April 2015 by Magnus from Stockholm

    We went all in with chef's tasting menu and the large wine package. Food was amazing, of the wines 4 out of 8 were great, the other four average or strange combination. The service was mixed with waiters doing a good job making us feel comfortable and then others not so committed. One strange thing is that they gave us the bill before we even all of the desert had been served yet.

    There was no heart among the service staff, one waiter even looked angry as he spilled water all over our table, and you got the feeling that they only wanted to get over the presentation of each dish so we missed most of the information. The heart in the food was not matched by the service.
