“Superb food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Unexpectedly we had to skip a pre planned event and dinner to work. The staff helped us get a small room to work in and were courteous enough to bring menus so we could order before the kitchen was to close at 21.00. The food was superb as was the service. Our waitress was exceptionally pleasant and friendly, wish I knew her name. The BÖHLER red wine we had was excellent. Based on the service I would highly recommend this place. The great food was a bonus.

“Classy atmosphere, but unconvincing cuisine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

This review pertains not to Hotel “Bohlerstern” as a whole, but solely to its restaurant, where hotel guests as well as all other customers are served. We went to eat there on a weekday evening. Most tables remained empty during out visit. We were seated in the main dining hall decorated with taste in a style that is both rustic and classic, without looking old-fashioned. The service matched the furniture and might also be called classic. Thick cloth napkins and huge underplates as well as very large, elegantly designed menus rendered this superior impression complete. This restaurant offers international cuisine with strong emphasis on Austrian and in particular on Styrian dishes.

After having ordered we were served a basket of bread along with a creamy spread and a little later we received an amuse gueule consisting of small pieces of vegetables in aspic. Thus, “Bohlerstern” appears to be ambitions and evidently strives to be a high-class restaurant. However, neither the appetizer nor the main courses, which arrived after a very reasonable delay, were convincing. They were definitely not bad, but lacked taste and did not justify their high prices at all.

All in all, “Bohlerstern” is a good restaurant, but with respect to its culinary performance it is markedly overpriced. This is a pity since we really enjoyed the great atmosphere and the excellent service it provides and spent a nice evening there.
