“Disappointing!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

To call a restaurant one of the best is not only about food but about atmosphere, service and making it an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately none of it was there during our dinner at this apparently best in Vienna restaurant. The food is ok but my husband and I could not wait to leave. Too pretentious for no particular reason and people working there have been doing the same thing for too long, they really seemed to need a break!

“Luxus eating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Eating at Steirereck is a great experience. It's not cheap but it's a must do in Vienna if you're into gastronomy.

“Not recommended”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

I have returned from dinner with big disappointment . May be food is excellent service is shambolic and disgraceful that even a food stand at a corner of the street will be a shame with. I have come far away especially in valentines to celebrate but the experience left us with very bitter taste that costs us a lot of money.

“Formal, yet delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Not as expensive as you might think as you can choose from menu rather than just do the set menu. Amazing choices, lovely wine and a nice ambience.

There are lots of waiting staff - we must have had 6 to 8 people at different times. It didn't detract, just different to having the more usual 1 person.

It was well worth going :)
