I've been going to this place for 10 years now. Since day one my expectations had been met, the management is professional and efficient, the staff is very friendly with an amazing passion for detail, the food is among the best you can get in Vienna, and I am not talking about only Fish. My favorite dish is the beef... More

This is preferably an evening location - enjoy great sushi in a cool nightclub ambiance. Smooth jazz, friendly waiters and relaxed atmosphere. Prices are a bit upscale, - but no regrets. Will do again 4sure!

The overall environment is very good. Interior is quite unique with dim lights and little loud music. The roof is with flowers and decorated well. The presentation of food is good and taste as well. The prices are bit high but i think it is like any other good resturant.

It's such a shame, the place itself is great, the food is excellent, music is nice, but the rest.. Service very bad, too occupied with the big tables, completely forgetting the little ones! Wine selection poor, not open to foreigners!

I really like Dots: food is delicious and the local itself is super well decorated and trendy. a place to be seen on a friday night for instance. Sushi is not cheap but it's also not sooo expensive... think of about 11-12 eur for an 8 pieces roll. 2negative things: there's not much light and after 10pm they lower it... More

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.

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.
