Description: Crowning Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom the Le LOFT Restaurant, Bar & Lounge is walled-in only by glass and colored by a painted mural ceiling by Pipilotti Rist. Floating above the city the restaurant provides the perfect setting for an unforgettable dining experience, combining inspired menus, great wines and impeccable service. The menus from our Chef de Cuisine Herve Pronzato evolve around a global cuisine with an eclectic mix of flavors from Europe, Asia and The Middle East. Although the recipes and presentations have a worldly orientation, many of the fresh ingredients are sourced locally. At Le LOFT Bar & Lounge guests can enjoy an aperitif before dinner or, afterwards, stretch into the night with world class cocktails. Reflecting the modern Vienna and the architecture of Le Loft, the unrivaled concepts of Afternoon Tea and Sunday Lunch surprise guests in every aspect. Reservations are welcome for all meal periods, also for groups, special occasions, events and exclusive bookings.

funky decor and vibe particularly at the central bar. We had a complete meal at a table next to the glass perimeter. Spectacular view.....food was average and service painfully slow. Two key elements expected in quality international style restaurants missing here.

We have been there for dinner with friends, they have been really impressed by the great view over all parts of vienna, the stuff really does a perfect service. Food is excellent, they... More

I have experienced many sky-scrapers in the world. The similarities are: view and hi prices. Beside those, The Loft has arrogant waiters, uninspired fusion plates and...that's all.

Loves the fantastic ceiling & the views are magnificent. The only negatives are that we were placed by the table are the unused & dirty plates were put which for an establishment like this... More

I was taken to Le Loft by a friend of mine and I wasn't sure what to expect. At first glance of the menu I was impressed by the array but taken aback by the steep prices. We ordered a four course menu that started with seaweed encrusted prawns, followed by a miso glaze halibut, then lamb served with roasted... More

This is a place to truly enjoy a late night drink. A very stylish and trendy bar at the top of the Sofitel Hotel in the heart of Vienna. This elegant bar will take your breath away as you look out over the city of Vienna. Check out the wine selection which is being stored in a 4 meter high... More

We went there for lunch with my partner. View was absolutely amazing. Interior is very sophisticated but little bit "cold" for me - combination of glass and grey colour. Food was tasty and pretty original also wine selection and service was perfect.

We were brought up in the elevator by the host and were awed by the view when we got to the stop. The stained glass ceiling and the glass windows all around created an incredible, sophisticated atmosphere. The wine was wonderful. There were limited vegetarian/gluten free-friendly starters and we were a little disappointed in that. I ordered the scallops and... More
