When I arrived in Vienna, my hotel room wasn't ready yet, so I took a walk to find some place for lunch in the meantime. Wortner looked great: proper, traditional location, nice atmosphere, decent guests, cool old furniture...But, first of all, I want ro tell you that the food was very good! Because, after reading my review, you will not... More

Two first visits here weke quite ok. The third visit was a terrible experience with two extremely unpolite waiters in the evening of 1st July. The lady-waiter got pissed when we just ask to bring a glass of wine (maybe she had a bad day, but should not become our problem). And the young man who who served us instead... More

Shared the fried chicken salad, plenty of food for two people and very good. Coffee was delicious. Not too long of a wait and staff was ok with speaking English. They take credit cards. Nice non touristy cafe experience. Outdoor patio provides nice atmosphere.

I have eaten here a few times and it is always very good. The fish is really perfectly cooked, which is rare to find anywhere much less in Vienna. The ambience and the service are perfect.

Not too many places open just out of the centre on a Sunday night but we found this one, where we could also sit outside. Decided to have some traditional local food. Think i'd figured out what I wanted in my rusty and empirical german but a translated menu was then found. Liver dumplings in broth was a good starter.... More

This is a great place for a brunch! They serve excellent coffee and a good although perhaps not exceptional apfelstrudel. Mohntorte was a bit too sweet but nevertheless good.

Went here for lunch before departing vie. Had a nice veal schnitzel and a good coffee. They have a nice outdoor seating on a sunny day. Would surely come back.

Wortner is a landmark in the 4th District of Vienna. It has a beautiful garden in summer with a fountain; friendly and attentive staff; a mixture of classic Viennese and more modern cooking; great beer; good coffee; and always forms a great vantage point to people watch and observe the "locals". It is my favourite coffee stop - very day;... More

Firstly we sat at a table for at least 5 minutes before a waiter came near us. When one arrived he took our drinks order and disappeared for awhile. The drinks were delivered then he literally threw the 2 menus on the table. A short time later he returned and took our orders. When the meals were put in front... More
