The best fine dining in Vienna and maybe one of the best in the world, I really love it. Nice atmosphere, delicious food and reasonable prices. Perfect for a date.

This review is a bit late to the party (in Jan 2020) but I recently ate extremely well at a new restaurant and it threw our experience here into sharp relief. Architecturally imposing, the restaurant is a beautiful space though showing it's age. It's quiet,...oh so quiet, and though efficient & professional, service felt impersonal - maybe a language barrier cultural thing and there was no hum or atmosphere. Conversation was whispered at every table. This was a meal I'd looked forward to for ages and initial impressions were good, there were several impressive looking and tasting canapes which were beautifully presented. The bread trolley was a work of art staffed by a lovely & extremely personable young man. I was desperate to try the signature char cooked in beeswax but I didn't get the dish at all. I'm ok with subtle & I enjoyed the theatre involved in the presentation was but it was just bland to my taste. Things went further downhill with a duck dish which was unfortunately unpleasant to eat. Wild duck on the bone was soft was but not as flavourful as I'd have hoped for & it missed the complementary texture of a crispy bit of duck skin. The buckwhat it was served with was served with was simply horrible to eat. My husband had cheese as a dessert and the nice young guy with the bread trolley was back, but this time with the best cheese trolley I've ever seen. As magnificent as it was, my husband was limited to just three choices and small servings of each. Just as I was about to write the meal off, I was served one of the most memorable desserts I've ever had - java coffee with yellow dates, plums & cinnamon flowers. This was sensational; again beautifully presented & I can still feel the amazing texture & mouthfeel of the coffee chocolate, best described as like having warm chocolatey coffee grounds in your mouth but in a really good way! The accompanying date & plum sorbet was delicious and not too sweet. There were lots of treats to end the meal which reminded us why this was a 2 Michelin star establishement - the hydrated citrus fruits were sharp, surprising and beautifully presented. In summary, we enjoyed the luxurious space, some amazing extras, fantastic bread and cheese and one gorgeous dessert. On balance however, this couldn't compensate for our first two disappointing courses despite the wonderful presentation. We left disappointed, feeling that style trumped flavour at this restaurant and an eye watering bill.More

I think it is a landmark of reinterpreted Austrian cuisine. I certainly have nothing to blame for the restaurant. If you arrive in Vienna, don't miss this place!

In late June we came back to Steirereck for our third or fourth meal here over the years. As always, amazing services fabulous breads and cheeses and wines and as always we left feeling that we had a lovely dinner. However I was struck by...how subtle, to the point of bland, most of the dishes were. That led me to think back about other meals there, to see if I could remember a single dish we had had and loved there. For top restaurants like this I usually have at least one dish I remember years on from the meal. And at Steirereck sadly I realised there isn’t a single one. This isn’t to say that the food isn’t good, but i don’t think I will be rushing to eat here again I have decided.More

This restaurant makes all the list of places to dine in Vienna. And while you wont be disappointed it has perhaps rested on its laurels for a bit too long. I have had the pleasure of a few meals here and they are always reliably...good. The highlights remain the staff and the wagons. The food is fresh and locally sourced. Happily the menu does change often. And while they shy away from gimmicks (good on them) and focus on the food and providing balanced dishes. I found though that the last couple of times there lacked a wow factor or really something that pushed the meal to the next level. I realize that perhaps I am being picky, but with a 2* Michelin rating I do look for that something extra. It felt perhaps the last couple of times as if it were a checklist production and not of something from the heart. Also I would say the interior is too monochromatic and while the building was very modern 10years ago, I do not think its aging as well as it was hoped for. But please note, that if you are looking for a solid Michelin Star diner you will find it here. But it does not sit alone.More

It's always the best reference in Vienna and over. Cosy and relaxing. Modern but not too modern. Very local products, local cuisine even if revisited. No french accent. Wine list could be little more European instead of Austrian only

This was a great experience. Yes, the food is inventive, punctilious and delicious, but the service was also exemplary. The front-of-house team's style is so personable and unselfconscious that we immediately felt at ease. It is clear that the entire team has a genuine, unforced...dedication to hospitality. Most guests were locals and not taking the full menu – just there for the ambience and one or two of their favorites. You are nevertheless still in Austria, so don't expect explosive flavours or sensory overload. I think Steirereck's achievement is in showcasing the surprising breath of ingredients which thrive in this climate, and how they can be combined to make an original meal. The eye for interesting fusions, and use cases for regional ingredients I had never heard of, were the most thought-provoking part of the meal. There were two stand-out dishes: the carp BBQ ribs, and the fennel with bergamot, hemp and lovage. I think you see the team's creativity and mastery of their craft most clearly in these dishes. Even though there are no theatrics, you can't help but notice how laborious every dish is. There are a lot of different components on every plate, all of which represent hours of careful work. So maybe the final flavors are quite mild, but only because the restaurant's ambitions are not directed towards shock value. At Steirereck you get a meal prepared by curious culinary academics with a well-defined research interest, rather than showmen chefs.More

What a beautiful restaurant. Very understated in the middle of the park. The food was not only lovely but there were surprises in every course. It is an indulgence you will never forget.
