We visited the restaurant yesterday. After reading the comments below I must admit we went there with mixed feelings. Atmosphere was nice overall, although some parts of the design i found weird. But that is a question of taste. Nice, modern, industrial kind of look. Music was cool and service was attentive. We had the Set for sushi lovers with... More

Despite some negative reviews about Dots, we visited on a Friday night as it was just down the street from our hotel and without a reservation. Common complaints in reviews had been rude staff and loud music. We found these criticisms to be unfounded during our visit (although I obviously can't account for the experience of others). The waiter showed... More

Great staff from the moment we made the reservation till we left after a fantastic meal of Sushi and Tepanyaki. Got to try the Hello Kitty and Marilyn Manroe Sushi so good. Good music, nice deco and good wine and cocktails. Can't wait to return when next in Vienna .

Great ambience in this cool restaurant hidden just off Mariahilferstrasse. Cool music and good DJ at peak times. Cuisine is great sushi. Love the truffle and asparagus maki. Great decor and fun art and if you like Sushi well worth a visit!

Very overpriced place. The waiter couldn't advise anythig, because he didn't speak any word on English. So he just brought everything according to his taste. And honestly saying the taste was very moderate. If you want to eat good sushi go to Mochi, Dots is a night club or somethig similar.

Well-known for its experimental Sushi, Dots Restaurant is also a wonderful Cocktail-Bar. Food is very good, service very friendly and helpful. A highlight in Mariahilfer Strasse.

Went there rather late after movies, quite empty but the kitchen was still open. I was rather concerned at first since this place had some pretty bad reviews, but I couldn't find fault with anything. The service was good. I showed the waiter a TA picture of the dish I wanted and he showed me the item on the menu.... More

"The most livable city in Europe" earns its credential thanks to top-notch restaurants like this one. Dots builds its ambiance from influences that are proportionally upscale and underground: candle-lit, windowless lounges, for example, and crowds crisscrossing the spectrum from suits to t-shirts. If you come wearing jeans like I did, you'll feel at home close to the bar-facing DJ-booth. You'll... More

Staying in Mariahilf

Neighborhood Profile
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.
