This restaurant looks amazing! What is the price for an average dinner? How do you make a reservation? I tried clicking on the website but everything was in German and I couldn't find a way to switch it to English.

it is amazing. Price varies on what is ordered, but it is not cheap. There is an english website, so there should be no problem, or you can go through the Hotel Sacher website for it. It is a classy place, and romantic one.

My Fiancée & I went from the Opera House to the Rote Bar just this weekend after a performance. It takes only a few moments once you leave, just walk to the back of the Opera House and cross the road and your right there.

Description
Enjoy traditional Viennese specialities in this elegant and stylish restaurant. You can either sit in the black and white floor-tiled glass conservatory facing the Opera House or in the grand, dark red damask dining room with large oil paintings and crystal chandeliers. The windows of the conservatory are folded away in summer to make a large open terrace. Live piano music in the evenings adds to the ambience.
