“Austrian ambience at its best”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

Skopik and Lonh is genuinely classy and as with all places of such kind it does not shout about it. We booked for the dinner of the New Year and we loved it. The restaurant is welcoming in all respects. The ambience is fantastic. The service attentive and discrete (although towards the end of our dinner when the place was full, the standard of the service dropped appreciably). Children had the schnitzel, which was good, but I am sure one can get better schnitzel in Vienna. My wife had the beet risotto, which she loved. I had the oxen's best, which was great. The venison carpaccio was SUPERB. Skopik and Lohn is more than about food. It is about elegance and character. A great ambassador of Vienna. A must visit.

“Excellent dinner”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We booked our dinner on Christmas day at Skopik & Lohn. The atmosphere was very pleasant, the music nice and discrete, and the service very good. The waiter was very kind and gentle and helped us out with all our questions concerning the menu options. We followed his recommendations and we did not regret it! Food was truly excellent, with very balanced combinations of ingredients and tastes. The Schnitzel was superb, but also "das Beste vom Ochsen" (we recommend!) and the red wine. The prices are fair, and for the wine we daresay even lower than expected. We will definitely book there again the next time we are in Vienna. The only negative memory from that evening comes from a rather strange Italian family eating next to us, with some of them having no manners whatsoever, standing on the wooden bench on their shoes or burping throughout the evening. Not the fault of the restaurant, of course.

“Worth every bite!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Based on reviews, we decided to check it out. Couldn't have been happier! Reservations made and though we arrived early, we had a drink at their bar while waiting for the table. It was so worth it! For starters, the duck liver pate with peach compote and brioche took me to heaven! So good and more pate than bread (when does that happen?). My husband had wild boar carpaccio (yumm!). Meals were blood pudding strudel with Apple jam for me and my husband had braised veal cheeks...so good! No room for dessert so we ended the meal with espressos. A great bottle of wine and the total bill was 82 euros. Where we come from, this was CHEAP! Highly recommend the restaurant. A beautiful meal with great service. Thanks, would definitely go back!
