I would put Le Ciel very high on any upscale dining list for Europe. The service was classically attentive from professionals who must be considering this their primary career (a trait much harder to find in the US). The prix fixe menu options are very diner-friendly flexible and for such a top-drawer place, I would not consider this expensive. The... More

You are at the 7th floor with a little view on surrounding Vienna. Menu is amazing as each dish is at Euro 13, starting from starters up to dessert. Tasted plates were excellent. Sommelier knows his job and selection is very good for both glass or bottle. Service has an outstanding level.

We had a wonderful celebration for our friends birthday, 16 friends of him travelling from Norway. This was the day after visiting concert in Grosser Saal, Musikferiein. The meny (no. 1) was set by the ordering, the selected wine was just perfect. We had a gourmet meal in very special and beautiful surrondings, a room of our own, just perfect... More

It is apparent why Le Ciel is award-winning. The Cuisine and Service is top-notch. Le Ciel provided a memorable evening.

Staying at the Grand Hotel for three nights, we decided to dine at Le Ciel after the Opera on Saturday night. I guess my palate isn't fully matured or others are afraid to give a rating lower than 5 star after dropping a minimum of 250 euros per couple, but the food is just okay. French cuisine consisting of small... More

My husband and I went to Le Ciel last night. It was wonderful to get to a truly gourmet restaurant after a week "on the road". The food was beautifully prepared and the service was perfect. I was pleased with the wine but I'm not an expert on wine. This is not an inexpensive place to dine and you would... More

We've have eaten at a lot of great restaurants across the world and was looking for something good in Vienna on a long weekend break. Ate here @ Le Ciel, and then the following night at Edval - also ate at Hollerie (first 2 nights). I have to say that Le Ciel was the most disappointing. If you are going... More

Our best meal whilst in Vienna on a long weekend break. We had their 5-course tasting menus where you may switch courses between the two and also had the pairing wine-menu. Price-wise, this is better value than choosing from the extensive a-la-carte menu, and then you get to sample Austrian wine that you may otherwise not have chosen. We liked... More

Having decided to splurge on an extravagant meal for lunch today, we booked a table at this restaurant. Turned out that was completely unnecessary, as there was strangely enough only one other table taken on the lovely terrace when we arrived. The weather was awesome, not too hot - it was a real pleasure to sit out there. We ordered... More

The ambience and decor maybe older rather than modern or funky, but it's warm, classy and inviting. Service is very professional and attentive. Menu is generally good traditional food rather than trendy modern stuff like foam everything! Food is well presented and cooked with attention. A great surprise was the complimentary spinach soup starter, which was delicious! Overall, very welcoming... More
