“Just Mouthwatering!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

So far the best food we've had in Vienna! We arrived shortly after noon without a reservation and were lucky to get a table for four. We sat inside and enjoyed some prosecco while we tried to make a choice from the delicious sounding menu and even more delicious looking plates that were going out to other tables. We finally ended up with the mixed antipasti plate (including a piece of crab that was just to die for!), the tuna carpaccio (good, but my least favourite), the tartare variation (includes tuna, salmon and seabass - incredible!), the bluemussels in white wine x3 (read garlic!!) sauce (some of the best mussels I've ever had!) and the tuna steak (waitress suggested it medium, not sure why. we went with medium rare, but should've gone with rare - was too cooked for my liking). Total bill was about 130 euro.

Overall this meal was incredible and I would highly recommend this restaurant. The only downside was that smoking was allowed in doors and the couple next to us were smoking after their meal, but at the beginning of ours - gross! Maybe ask for a table outside if this bothers you.

“Horrid service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Just came back from Umar Fisch and boy, am i dissapointed. My husband reserved a table for two and we came exactly on time. The manager (maybe even the owner, since he was being so arrogant) said we'd have to wait a couple minutes for a table, then he offered us a table by the door and when we refused to take it (because it's freezing outside and the door is constantly being opened) he started literally shouting that 'everybody wants a table away from the door, everybody reserved their table just like you, you demand a table right now' and 'the best you can do is just take this table'. He finished with a 'bye-bye' and turned away. Needless to say, we will not be coming back.
To be fair - we went to this restaurant last year without a reservation and it was great, except for being tiny and overcrowded.

“I should not be rating them”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

as it will only improve difficulties to compete for a table.

The review can only be brief. Umar is an excellent venue to enjoy fish and atmosphere.
