We dined at Opus after seeing the Cleveland Orchestra at Musikverein. The restaurant is just a few paces from the concert hall, and it is exquisite. The food and service were exceptional, and the chef and servers added a number of touches to make the evening truly wonderful.

We had dinner at this lovely restaurant which we enjoyed tremendously! Service was perfect and very charming ! We both had the consommé with slices of pancakes which was delicious ! The wiener schnitzel was incredibly delicate and crunchy with great flavour. Dessert was shared and a Viennese coffee . Will go back again for sure !

To put it into one sentence: IT WAS AN OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE! The atmosphere is elegant and classic with a modern touch, but still very cosy. The lighting is very decent but still enough to read the menu. There... More

What a pitty it does not exist anymore! The new Opus restaurant is not bad, but the atmosphere is very average, wine list quite poor, dishes just good and the service... More

Chosed the Imperial and Opus menu 6 course each, still got the "welcome bite" from the chef and in the end a small selection of the house dessert - including the Imperial Cake the speciality of the house - so it turned out 8 courses. The service was attentive and professional found the right balance to be served in time... More
