It was a Romantic date night the weekend before Valentines day . The servers were just not able to get it together even though we had reservations 4 days prior. We waited for 15 mins for anyone to look at us, 15 more mins to order a beverage and another half hour before they even talked food. One and a half hours there and not even a hint of dinner coming, It was obviously a problem. The cold sliced bread in the bread basket looked like it was from the supermarket and did little to help. The party of 6 sitting next to us were in and out before we were even offered a dessert menu. The main course was good enough. I had salmon and husband had a steak. But we go out a lot and have had a lot of good food at better prices without such bad service. Folks next to us saw how miserable we were and swear they are regulars and we should try it another time. I'm pretty sure my husband would never set foot there again ! Bill was over $100 and we left with a bitter tastes ...Too many other great places nearby!

Food was so-so (herring = delicious, veal = tough, strudel = soggy). Some menu items are over-priced. Wine by the glass selection is minimal.

Fabulous service and delicious food - loved the decor and the antiques scattered around. We did dinner only, so we didn't see any of the guest rooms.

First time at the Vienna. We went for Christmas Dinner. Table wasn't ready on time, but we were escorted to the parlor for cocktails, which made the wait very pleasant. Considering the day, the wait was minimal. Adrianna did an excellent job as our server......couldn't ask for more. Food was very good. The only thing that could make it better would be to have the plates heated to keep the food a little warmer. Onion soup was one of the best I've ever had. Overall, a very enjoyable experience well worth the 1 hour drive for us. Definitely would recommend this restaurant for upscale, relaxed dining.

Everything was perfect with the exception of the pork Jagger Shnitzel (spelling???) which three of the four of us had to eat. It was gamey with grizzle and fat. Also, peach/raspberry tart like desert was so hard it required sips of coffee to soften it. We will try going there again but if we experience the same thing, we will not return. These two things marred what was otherwise a lovely meal and experience.

Wonderful meal was had by all although my meal was not prepared quite as the write up in the menu. Superb service and the fireplace was a nice touch. Great suggestion for the Reisling. Don't know what all the prior negative comments were about because we did not experience any of that. Get the strudel. It is excellent.

We traveled an hour to get to this restaurant, as we wanted traditional Viennese food. We were not disappointed. The service was wonderful, and the food was excellent. While generally traditional, there were a few little twists that made it memorable (e.g. a touch of curry in the salad dressing). The ambiance was charming. Not realizing I had made the reservation at the exact hour the kitchen closes, we were nevertheless treated with care and were unrushed. I would highly recommend this place.

A friend and I went for an earlier dinner on a Sunday and we were the only ones there. Service was attentive but maybe trying a bit too hard (though that's unsurprising when you're the only patrons). But the food was amazing! Totally worth the trip and felt very authentic to the food I would eat when I lived in Central Europe! Overall, it make take itself a bit too seriously but the food speaks for itself!

Web site comments re: inadequate help were borne out; i.e. a single waiter in a dirty apron who had to manage by himself from laying a fire (never got one), taking/delivering the meal, mixing drinks, busing during/after dinner, had to ask for bread/butter and water which was never replenished once provided, table knife left when appetizer was cleared away and was never replaced. The young man tried valiantly to do a good job and was very pleasant despite his inexperience. In that we were the only patrons during the first half of the meal (when a second couple arrived), it seems that someone might have come out to assist him.
24/7 operation is apparently more than the staff can accommodate. Try six, even five, nights a week. It gets lonely in an otherwise empty but lovely dining room.
