The breakfast is good, not top. Service is good. View is top. Lunch was alright, nothing special, much too pricey for what you get. Lots of room to improve.

The place is terrific, the view out standing, too sad than that night, the service was under staff which give us a long time between our meals and the main courses warm rather than hot. When the kitchen and the waiters are at there best it must be a superb place to dine. I got there a great red Wine... More

We had soft drinks and salads that were small but good. I had the shrimp salad on ciabatta which was nice but the shrimps were definitely defrosted from frozen which is a bit disappointing in a hotel of this calibre. The other person with me had Caesar salad that was small and drenched in dressing. Again nice but not the... More

We had a superb meal at Le Loft at the end of June. We requested a table by the window and were given one with a view of the Stephansdom and most of Vienna. We started with one of the special cocktails and then were a bit torn as to whether or not to get a bottle of wine with... More

THE PLACE: This top-floor restaurant, in the Sofitel Stephansdom in Vienna Austria, is simply outstanding - I think destination dining in Vienna. The decor is stunning - and the view, through huge windows across the city, is not to be missed. Beautiful abstract lighted ceiling fixture (see pic). Low ambient / chill / smooth jazz style music. Very nice ambiance.... More

Tired from all day travel and time zone changes we opted to eat at our hotel, The Sofitel Vienna. The restaurant on the 18th floor with a panoramic view of Vienna is much more than generally expected. From hotel dining. First, the service was outstanding. A helpful wait staff who seemed happy to see us. Combined with a beautiful view,... More

I agree that the best of this place is the views. We were sat behind blinds protecting us from the sunset sunlight, so clearly our dinner did not start well. Starters ok. Foie grass as first course, also just ok. Well executed if not for the poor foam ("espuma"), clearly pretentious, without any flavour and which decayed in very few... More

We had heard from our hotel staff and some online reviews that the bar atop the hotel was a must see at sunset and during the night. Attempt one was an utter failure as we tried getting in the bar at night and there was no seating plus an hour+ wait, and the restaurant was clearly booked all night. The... More

Come if you like the view. But food very average. Nothing was fine dining as such. We are there for farewell dinner. Very slow in service. Antree and main was really slow. So is there desert. We were wanted to have desert but it was so slow .we had decided to pay and leave at 2230hrs.
