We had been very busy in Vienna, and somehow I hadn't eaten a "Tafelspitz", so just round the corner from our apartment, we found what I wanted/needed. It was served with the correct radish sauce and apple puree (see pic). Very nice!!

I made a reservation at Gustl Bauer the other night and enjoyed my meal there. It has a typical Austrian menu. I had the Tafelspitz and the kaiserschmarnn for dessert. Both dishes were very good. Good location. Seemed popular with locals.
