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.

We had a midday meal to remember...for a long, long time. The choices were great, the service was amazing and the food was super(b)!! If you're curious, the best thing to do is look at their menu online. And, be prepared to spend at least...200 Euros per person. We did and it was worth every cent.More

This is the second time I had the privilege to have lunch at Steirereck, and this second experience even surpassed the memories. We had booked a table well in advance for noon on a Friday. The previous time was long ago, in the old site,...the restaurant Am Heumarkt is everything it should be: modern, elegant and comfortable yet subdued. So are the waiters and waitresses, moving about in a delicate yet highly professional way. We went for the 6 Gang Menü which turned out to be even more, what with the amuse-bouches and the little delicacies in the end. We shared between the two of us one Getränke Begleitung as we have no capacity for six times 100 ml wine each. The amuse-bouches are indescribable: a cavalcade of tastes and textures, really setting the stage. The Young Celeriac with Purslane, Porcini Mushrooms & Rose Iboza (accompanied by an excellent 2017 Grüner Veltliner) was again a combination of different tastes and textures. The Fennel with Bergamot, Hemp, salty Figs & Lovage (with Sauvignon Blanc) was delicate and tasty. The ‘Perlfish’ with Gin infused Cornel Cherries, Pickles & Rice (with white Bordeaux) was the winner of this extremely strong race, the absolute favourite of both of us. The Mushroom ‘Beuschel’ with Forest Perennial Rye & Mushroom Plant was in fact a thick soup (accompanied by a very nice Riesling), it was also excellent. The Best End of Lamb with Swede, Beans & Raisins was maybe a tiny bit of a let down. It was very good, but the beans somehow were not exactly to our taste. The accompanying No. 73 „Vino Bianco (Grillo, Catarratto), Viteadovest di Portelli Rosaria / Marsala was rather unexpected, we were not prepared for it, and didn’t appreciate it as well as maybe we should have. But then came another highlight: the selected cheeses with a 2006 Ruländer Auslese, Fred Loimer / Langenlois. Absolutely outstanding. To finish came little sweet tidbits and an excellent espresso. Here all the smells and tastes were subtle, most of the time we could not even identify the individual spices, just enjoy the pleasant harmony of the combinations. It was certainly a memorable feast, one whose tastes will linger on for a lifetime. It is, of course, not cheap, but if you can afford it than go for it, you won’t regret.More

The restaurant is in a beautiful setting and the seating arrangements are well thought out. Whilst the food is very good and well executed as it should be for a 2* restaurant, we truly were missing the engagement of the service team. There was at...no point any interest in us!Given that one of us spoke English, there were plenty of opportunities to spark some sort of conversation.... but nothing..... We left the restaurant with the feeling not being important enough! Is it maybe that our bill was only €500 for 2.....More
