“Great Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

The Cafe is divided into two parts: the more casual cafe, and the upscale Salon. We ate in the Salon and loved it! The servers all wear white gloves, were very attentive, and the food was excellent! The decor is to die for! Google it and you'll agree! Definitely worth a visit, especially if you are celebrating an important event or, like us, are foodies and want an excellent meal and a great experience at least once in each city.

“A marvel of Interior Elegance!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Walk through the rooms to enjoy the elegant ambience but don't expect outstanding food. The visual experience is sufficient but for me who must adhere to a low-sodium diet, there is very little to eat. Everything seems to be already prepared.

“Worst hostess ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

We decided to visit the ny cafe since we had heard a lot about their desserts. Yes, the dessert was good (nothing too impressive), but you dont go to a place like that just because of the food you eat but for the service you receive. I dont know and mind what that blonde hostess was thinking while welcoming us but she was so rude! 8 of our friends were aldready sitting next to the door and she didnt want to let us in, saying 'you cant sit with them, there are no free chairs' when i kindly asked her whether it was possible to find 2 free chairs in thar enourmous cafe. She said she couldnt put extra chairs. Then she left and we let ourselves in and. Then she came with just one chair. Whenever we asked her anything like the wifi password or the menu we received rude answers without any eye contact. So, go there to see the building and maybe have a bite of their average desserts. But when you see that blondie, just ignore her and talk to another, probably a nicer staff.

“Expensive, but definitely worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This place is amazing. You will never sit in a café more elegant than this. The service is impeccable and the food is absolutely delicious! I took my parents here when they came over to visit me while I was studying abroad in Vienna. Needless to say, after living in Vienna for 6 months I was very used to beautiful and elegant cafes, but this place still gave me chills. It is absolutely stunning and definitely worth the price.
