Outstanding, memorable evening

I wanted to go to Steirereck for a long time and last week I finally managed to and the long wait was more than worth it. The evening was simply wonderful.

nt for lunch. Location is good, restaurant is clean, staff knowlegable in every respect. We have tried 7 course tasting menu. That end up actually with 10 course menu with pre tasting and dry citrus at the end. We did not took wine to accompany every dish, we have opened with champagne and later we drink red wine. Now the... More

We made the splurge and decided to visit Steirereck during our stay in Vienna. I was motivated partly by the intensity of its defenders when someone made a snide remark about it on the New York Times blog. I sensed Steirereck fans were almost in tears at the thought that this esteemed restaurant had been mistaken for a tourist trap.... More

We visited the restaurant on the first night of our holiday, which was actually our 'mini-moon' having got married two days earlier. We had the six course tasting menu, with drinks pairing and it was worth every penny. Not only was each dish an amazing assortment of flavours and inconceivable ingredients, but the accompanying theatre and overall experience made it... More

We arrived for brunch, without reservation and got a seat in the bar. The place is very clean looking and show class and straight lines. The service was welcoming and very professional. Food was great, tasty and light with high quality products. Coffees and juices are highly recommended and very tasty. The view from the restaurant is the river and... More

Every course was beautiful and delicious (lunch 4 course). The endive with Persian lemon was exceptional and the little cards explaining the dish are such a good idea. Heston's Dinner does a version of this but this much more detailed. The Java coffee dessert was brilliant-made to look like coffee grounds-is very Hestonesk but this was better (dare I say... More

We got a wedding gift from friends saying they have booked a table for lunch for us at our honeymoon. It was a tasting menu with wine package. It was such a good experience!

The perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. The food and service were hard to fault. We had the tasting menu and loved both the variety and flavour. The little cards that detail each course were a nice touch and as has been said before, the bread cart and the cheese board really are a treat (there must be in... More
