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.

“Wonderful atmosphere and good food, but not "over the top"...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

I have been there for dinner with my wife and one month old son for our wedding anniversary dinner. We actually got the dinner "for free" as our "wedding list" which we had at the company Lobmayr in Vienna, entitled us to a free dinner at the Rote Bar.
We liked it very much and all was fine. HOWEVER, if we would have had to pay, I must say that we would have been a bit disappointed from the attention we got and specially food.
All in all it was a great experience, but again if we would have had to pay what it actually cost, it would have been overpriced.

“Good choice after opera”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014 via mobile

Came here about 11pm without reservation. Staff accommodating . Food good but not great. Get a table away from piano... It's a little loud. Can't do much better for a late dinner after opera.

“Just sublim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

We went there with my husband and daughter late February for diner. The decor is just wonderful: warm, cosy, elegant, extremely refined
Service was perfect and fast
We had the foie gras tart, celery soup and lobster salad
Followed by innards, salmon truite and chicken
Finish with sacher tort of course and a plate of cheese
Everything was absolutely excellent, really excellent
Including drinks cost was 200 euros . It was a fantastic evening, very romantic place in a divine city
You have to book in advance
I did it on internet and it worked perfectly

“Great location, perfect food, phantastic service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

No doubt, this restaurant in the famous Sacher Hotel is one of the best restaurants in Austria. It is called bar, but it really is a fine restaurant. It is small, historical and somehow cosy. The red colours give an almost palace like setting. Food is typical Austrian with a very fine touch. They have a superb winelist with the best wines of Austria. Staff is very attentive, service is 100 percent perfect. As the place is small, don't go there without a reservation.

“A very nice experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013 via mobile

The two of us arrived without having booked a table but we were seated at a very nice table with a wonderful view. A very good atmosphere. Both of us ordered a traditional Wienerschizel - first class made of veal.
Not inexpensive but taken quality and atmosphere into consideration well worth it.

I will defenitely come back to this beautiful restaurant!
