Maybe I'm spoiled to have grown up in a part of the world with some of the best sushi you can find, but I have been to a few places in Vienna with surprisingly good and authentic sushi for a reasonable cost. Dots isn't really that type of place.
You enter and notice how much value they've placed on being trendy. Dim lighting, a chic and yuppie crowd, post-modern art on the walls, an extensive bar, a dj stand. However, there was one staple feature of a sushi restaurant that was notably absent. Where is the sushi bar? Where can I see my always friendly sushi-chef showing off his skills and whipping up some of my favorite delights? Oh right, they needed to make room for the bar and dj set.
That being said, the service was excellent and our waitress was very attentive. My group had a nice round table in the corner away from the thumping beats so we could actually have a conversation.
The food was on the pricier side, good but unfortunately not great. I ordered off of the "experimental" menu and was a bit disappointed by inside-out tuna rolls with a few black poppy seeds mixed into the rice. It wasn't bad, but hardly "experimental." (I did not, however, order the roll filled with veal. This might be deemed more "experimental")
So, all in all, if you're looking for a an authentic sushi restaurant (sushi bar included) that delivers quality at reasonable prices, Dots probably isn't for you. On the other hand, if you're looking to parade in that new blazer or dress you just bought, show off to yours friends and neighbors by ordering sushi with gold-leaf on top, and slurp down a few cocktails, you could consider it.
