Before going into the gallery, stop and have either breakfast (best soft boiled egg and brioche toast I have had for a long time). Beautiful dining room, excellent service at a very reasonable price.

We had lunch here after looking at the collection at the Neue Galerie. It's really a Viennese cafe. Selection of food and the interior giving you a real feeling of Vienna. Was truly amazed. Love this place.

We wanted a drink and some dessert late in the afternoon after visiting a nearby museum. This place did not disappoint. Some people were eating full meals, while others were having an early drink and snack. The room is wonderful and so authentic feeling. The waitstaff was attentive and pleasant. I will return.

During a recent trip to New York City, my wife and I wanted to tour the Neue Gallerie. Due to our schedule, we ended up there over a busy weekend, so we went to the Cafe Sabarsky for breakfast before the museum opened...so happy we did! NOTE: the cafe is located in the museum. While in college so many years... More

I love this place for lunch. The space is a gorgeous wood paneled room, the wurst with potatoes make a tasty simple meal (we had sausage with a smoky curry sauce, and bratwurst with sauerkraut ($20 each).

I had read about this restaurant before my visit and was excited to get a chance to experience it. My order of a beet salad was nothing more than a pile of cut up cooked beets with perhaps 3 soggy leaves of green on the bottom and 2 small squares of goat cheese. Oh well.

Stepping back in time to a Viennese cafe in the Neue gallery. Great desserts, tasty goulash and curry wurst and good salads. The service is good and the ambiance and decor fit with the Klimt Art in the gallery above.

Thank Mary K
