horrible service and expensive, but food is very good

to make it clear, I'm not going there any more as I was not respected as a guest. they wanted us to leave as fast as we can so that they can make their party event with their DJ and everything, and considering how much I had paid for the food, i was not happy with this at all. just... read more

Wonderful place, excellent fish. Quite expensive (25 € x person only for 1 dish) but you must taste it.

In a prime nighttime location this sushi restaurant can save your evening. Trendy and perfectly ready to entertain you with some funny variation on the sushi theme. Nothing authentic of course but the right place to impress the innocent. Quality of food, service and decor of the place is beyond reproach.

I eat at dots once in a while because it's an appreciated spot for occasions. The place (Brunnerhof branch) has a posh interior, service is good, concept is nice. Dots is the first restaurant chain in Vienna which tried the experimental sushi. On my recent visit I was quite unimpressed by my choice: crispy sake maki. Fish skin crunches in... More

Visited Dots at the end of February again after a long time, and was completely satisfied. It was a Saturday, we called the Restaurant around noon and asked whether they had a table for 4 persons at 20:00, which was no problem at all. By the entrance of the restaurant there is a cloackroom, where a friendly young lady took... More

This place is located right in the city centre, in a pedestrian area. The restaurant is very fancy and the atmosphere is very nice and relaxing, perfect for enjoying some good sushi. The food was really good and tasty, by the way. I would recommend it but the price is a bit high

Good quality japanise cuisine... a little bit expensive. Indicated for a special occasion, rather than an informal lunch/dinner. The music is too loud making difficult to talk with your friends!

The restaurant is modern and well-furnished, the waiters were friendly. The place self is a bit dark but it didn't make the delicious sushi any worse. Great restaurant, surely one to recommend.

Staying in Mariahilf

Neighborhood Profile
Mariahilf
Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna and the center. One of the most historic sites in the area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with its small shops and cafés. It leads from Mariahilfer Strasse to Windmühlgasse. For a glimpse into the world of early 19th century theater, visit Semperdepot, the former depository for theater decoration, which now hosts art exhibitions and fairs.
