For an appetizer we had a plate with a sample of all their appetizers. These included bread and cheese dumplings with walnuts and scalloped cabbage and artichokes. We were given a bread basket with homemade warm rye and white bread.
Our salad course was wonderful with a variety of field greens, yellow peppers and cherry tomatoes all covered with an excellant balsamic vinigrette. For my main course I ordered lamb chops which were four of the most tender and flavorful chops I've ever had. They were arranged on a bed of homemade fettucini and whole baby carrots and an onion that looked like a large scallion.
One of the others in our group had a half of a roasted chicken done with rosemary and artichokes au gratin. My husband had weiner schnitzel and parsley potatoes. Everyone raved about the food.
For dessert I had white chocolate mocha mousse which was presented beautifully with cinnamon and powdered sugar. The other dessert we tried was mango parfait.
This is a first class dining experience. The cost was about $30 a person. I would eat here again and if you are in Vienna I would recommend that you give it a try. But remember we almost didn't get a table in January without a reservation so I recommend you book as much in advance as you can, the quality of the food here is no secret with the locals.
