It is an interesting concept to design a dining room around Mozart. The ambiance was pleasant.

The food is Austrian / German style. But we thought we could recreate much of the experience at home and a trip to a well stocked grocery store.

One reviewer said don't expect an experience typical of this style as found in better restaurants in Chicago or Milwaukee - that person was soooo right. I didn't get the feeling that chef made the sausages, spaetzle, etc.. We noticed the goulash sauce did not have a hint of a reduced wine character. Tasted more institutional.

Many of the wines ( including their 1 Austrian offering ) were not available. The wine list was very limited to begin with.

With the chef's pedigree, we were hoping for more.

It's wasn't a bad experience and the people are very nice, it's just wasn't a memorable experience.

Excellent food. Wonderful service. Owners who care. We had a super dining experience. Beef broth with liver dumplings, veal and apples in a nightgown were phenomenal. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed Austrian Gulasch and Wiener Schnitzel (perfect veal) at the House of Mozart on Marco Island over lunch. It tastes exactly like in Vienna. The atmosphere in the restaurant is pretty Autrian too. Don't miss the Apfelstrudel as desert. Very good with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. A delicious meal and great experience. Not just for us Europeans!

Just went with friends from Germany. The menu is divided half Austrian/German and half international (eg. Italian, seafood, etc.) We all ate Austrian/German and all tasted each other dishes..all delicious and nicely presented. And all dishes were greatly improved over the meals offered under the previous owners.

Two small quibbles: the place is dark and needs some upgrading in decor, and the new owner who came to our table (which was nice) was dressed in shorts and flip flops and we just thought as a new owner he should present himself more professionally..khakis and a polo shirt maybe? As I said, minor matters. Overall worth a visit !!

My husband and I were there recently for dinner while on vacation. We love German food and have been to many restaurants as well as Germany itself, so we know good German food. This food was fantastic! (I guess technically it's Austrian since the chef is from Vienna.) My husband had the chicken paprika and I had the jaegerschnitzel. We had potato pancakes to start which were more of a pancake make from a mashed potato. They were terrific. I savored every bite. The jaegerschnitzel was wonderful. The sauce had bits of bacon in it adding to the yumminess. We would have had dessert too, but our crying baby necessitated an early departure. We'll be back.
