“Makes Vienna a top destination for foodies”
Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

Dining at Steirereck was an experience of a lifetime. We were in Vienna for only three days and tried to book dinner a week in advance - no luck. We opted for lunch instead and were happy we were persistent. Arrived at 11:45 and didn't walk out until 3:30. Every dish and every presentation was five-star. The entire family agreed - the meal will be remembered for a life-time. From the cards placed in front of you explaining each course to the unique preparation of the dishes this is a restaurant not to be missed if you are a foodie (but be prepared - this is a pricey place).

“Simply excellent”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

It is impossible to find sufficient words to praise this restaurant. Everything from the building, the staff, the food, the wine, the environmental sustainability and even the bathrooms have been given so much love and attention that a dinner is more than just an exquisite dining experience. I went with a friend and we enjoyed the seven course meal with wine pairings. Our wait staff were wonderful, the sommelier delightful, the breads and bread server beyond description. Order tea just to watch what they do! Best of all, was the charming and young son of the chef and owners who was off from school and "working" the night we went. His welcome began the evening in a way that ensured it would be a great success. Book many months ahead but don't miss this restaurant if you are planning a trip to Vienna.

Steirereck was an absolute delight from start to finish. My fiancée and I visited to celebrate our engagement and could not fault the experience.

The meal commenced with a glass of wine and then three different amuse-bouches, all of which were delicious, and we ordered the 7 course tasting menu with matched wines. A formidable selection of breads was on offer, of which we had to restrain ourselves not to over-indulge!

The food was absolutely outstanding, with every course being equally delicious. As another poster mentioned every course was presented with a card telling what the dish was, along with information on the more obscure ingredients. The food really was top class and any explanation I could try to give here would not do it justice.

The service was absolutely top notch, with all our needs catered for without being overly fawning. The dining room was very comfortable - all in all we spent over four hours at Steirereck and could easily have stayed longer. I couldn't recommend the restaurant highly enough, well worth the price, and I won't hesitate to visit again!

“Care and attention to detail defines Viennese gourmet experience”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

From the moment we stepped in the architecture, ambience and staff took over and nothing disappointed from there. It's reputation is well earned. Settling in for a tasting menu with paired wines, all the little things added to the magic of eating simply wonderful food. Waiting staff were attentive but never intrusive. The only complaint was the bread service was slow on the cheese course. How bad can life get??? Highly recommend a visit to this restaurant when next in Vienna.
