We're going to be in Vienna for the New Year's Eve, and would like to have dinner in a nice restaurant in the city center before going out to the street to join Silvesterpdaf.
We are not interested in an all-inclusive "Gala" dinner that includes the New Year celebration (although this is an option too - but so far we're leaning toward meeting the New Year on the streets) - just a conveniently located place with good food (preferably Austrian/German or French cuisine) and wines, not too formal and not too loud, to stay there for a couple hours until about 10:30 or 11 PM before going outside.
I'm sure if the place is any good, I'll have to make a reservation, and probably the sooner the better :). I would appreciate any recommendations! Thank you!
