Vienna Restaurants

Steirereck

Updated 08/26/2014

Fodor's Review

Considered one of the world's 50 best restaurants, this eatery is definitely the most raved-about place in Austria. It's in the former Milchhauspavilion, a grand Jugendstil-vintage dairy overlooking the Wienfluss promenade in the Stadtpark, the main city park on the Ringstrasse. Winning dishes include delicate wild boar's head with "purple haze" carrots, turbot in an avocado crust, or char in beeswax, yellow turnips, and cream. At the end of the meal, an outstanding selection of more than 120 cheeses await. If you don't want the gala Steirereck experience, opt for a bite in the more casual lower-floor Meierei, which is still stylish, with its hand-painted floor and furniture in shades of milky white.

Don't miss this one!

It's tough to write a review of this one because on the one hand, it's a once in a lifetime experience. Be prepared for a 3-4 hour culinary adventure. Keep in mind, the prices are on par with that of The French Laundry in California's wine country! That said, this was the most amazing meal we had on our 3 week, 6 country trip around Eastern Europe. It deserves it's award for the best restaurant in Austria. The culinary masters here could make

ANYTHING taste amazing. Renowned for their cheese, be prepared to have the strong smell from the cheese cart (sometimes parked right next to you) overwhelm your senses now and then. There is a slight language barrier if you speak only English, but when you can do what they can do with food, you don't need to say much. The tableside displays are quite impressive. Go for the 6-course tasting menu to really get a sense of Steirereck's mastery. Wear your finest dining attire and prepare to be amazed.

A 5-star evening

Contestant for best in Europe. Each table was treated as VIP. Team waiting was executed with precision. Before we even ordered two different and unique amusee bouche arrived from the kitchen. With so much to consider, we opted for the chef's menu and it was wonderful. Courses were ample, varied, and spaced out for an evening long dining experience. The cheese cart offered 60+ choices and the wines complimented every course. This was our last night

of a 12 night trip and we saved the best for last. It was worth every Euro.

Truly a fine dining experience.

The food is exceptional - if the monkfish is on the menu, it's a must-try. The breadcart and pretzels were delicious...although there was plenty of food still to come. Also enjoyed the "chef's compliments" served between the courses. The outside is a beautiful setting (perfect for an after-dinner drink) but the inside is a little stuffy and slightly stuffy on a warm night.

Exquisite, Expensive, and Worth Every Euro!

We had the prix-fixe 4-course lunch in May 2005. The decor and ambience of the dining room were delightful, but the cuisine and service were outstanding. There were at least 2 choices for each course, and 5 or 6 courses to choose fro. Special kudos go to the sorbet dessert, which consisted of 7 unexpectedly delicious flavors (including green pepper!), and to the staff whose graciousness and recommendations made our visit a truly memorable experience.

Wine is extra and quickly adds to the prix fixe cost.
