“Good Fresh Food”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

We were staying in the Novotel and had come off a 28 hr flight from Australia. We had stayed up during the day to get our sleep patterns in order. So we ventured downstairs to have an early dinner before getting some much needed sleep. The place is slickly designed and the menu a mix of the inventive and the traditional eg Wiener schnitzel. The service was helpful but not that knowledgable. When I asked about the ingredients in certain dishes the waiter did not know. However he was quick to go and find out. I had the signature 4/4 which is 4 small serves in their own glasses. The deep fried prawn was tough and only so so. The felafel was average. However the chicken with apple and fennel with little dough torpedoes was very good. The small steak with truffle mash was out of this world. I would say the best steak and mash I have ever had.
So my 4 tastes went from mediocre to outstanding.

“For Vienna visitors with local cuisine”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Nice design, clean and perfect local cuisine. I can recommend for dinner or lunch. Fair prices. We were just passing Vienna, but it was worthy to enter the central area.

“Fine food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

As we were staying at the Novotel we choose to eat in at 5 Senses one evening. The food and service were excellent;the atmosphere as others have commented was very quiet but also very pleasant. The price is higher than we would usually choose but was worth it for the fine food.

“Attractive decor, good food but very stiff atmosphere.”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

The first thing to strike me was the stylish decor. Very modern and slick. There were a few other tables eating already but the restaurant was very quiet in terms of chatter and ambience. We were greeted, seated and served by an efficient, polite but fairly stoic gentleman who looked like he hadn't smiled in years. Our food came in a timely fashion; starter and main were both very good and the waitress who took over the service for us was a little less business-like. However, we chatted over our food in that hushed, afraid-to-make-a-noise type of whisper that places like this seem to inadvertently encourage. You're almost made to feel insolent for not taking the food seriously enough. Which, if that is your bag, means this restaurant could well be essential for you. My wife and I however, would rather a place with a bit of spark any day, and thus, wouldn't come here again. However, this is obviously a personal opinion and I can't emphasise enough that the service and food are very good so please try it for yourself before passing judgement. Perhaps we just caught it on an off night....
