We have eaten in high end restaurants in London and New York. This was still one of the best I ever had. The food was excellent. We had the menu accompanied by wine. The prices are very reasonable. I was very impressed by the implacable service. I personally also liked the room, which was decorated with taste and there was... More

I was really disappointed with this restaurant. Mys husband and I went there for a romantic night and we regretted going there. To start, the decoration was really ugly and outdated. Very 90's. I could not get the potted plants on the floor. Second, the food was bad. We had the course menu, and the only good dish was the... More

I booked this restaurant as a surprise for my girlfriend on our first night in Vienna. The room itself is grand and very inviting, and the service is even better than we had anticated. It really was the best silver service I've ever had. The service was only topped by the food. Overall this was a fantastic meal and I... More

Recently we celebrated a very special Family Birthday at Le Ciel Restaurant. The Grand hotel is a beautiful setting in the heart of Vienna and the restaurant is at the top. The food and service were exquisite and our party of eight very much enjoyed the various tastes of French with Austrian food and the fabulous selection of wines. The... More

We chose this restaurant for a special evening visiting Vienna with friends. The Grand Hotel is a beautiful setting, and this restaurant is on the top floor. We all chose one of the 5 course tasting menus and enjoyed the carefully balanced tastes of each dish. I did not expect the beetroot risotto to be so amazingly good so far... More

Value for money menu at €48 for 3 courses without wine, good atmosphere and service, great cheese trolley, just the place for a birthday dinner for four! Only issue is that the sommelier takes control of the wine and near the end tops up the men but not the ladies - did not go down well. Maybe it's an Austrian... More

Excellent meal, excellent service. It is hard to find the restaurant as it is in the 7th floor of the Grand Hotel Wien. Next time when visiting Vienna will surely go just there.

Burrata with grilled lettuce and passion fruit -- one of the best things I've eaten. Venison loin with potato noodles and parsnip purée. Tagliatelle with leek pesto. Pear tarte tatin. The food is superb and each course at lunch is just 13 € which is absolutely amazing. Service impeccable. And really lovely flower arrangements. What more could you want?
