Visited this place according the reviews on TA to try an authentical schnitzel in Vienna.
So, it was a very big mistake .... the "restaurant" - I would say a regular cantine is hot, with a half-open kitchen, so the smell of baked meat is hanging all around. It is not cosy at all, the tables are big for 5 - 6 persons, so you will have to share it with other people (I read about it, but still hoped it will be OK), so if you share a table you have to seat next to each other with your partner, not accros. The service is terrible, I have never experienced something like that - the "welcoming" is : - You sit here - and the waiter desappered, after he returned he could hardly listen to the order and went away before we could say completely what we wanted...
The schnitzel was Ok, the portion huge, but there is no atmosphere in that place, it not cosy, most unfriendly waiter I have ever seen .
For me a visit to a restaurant is about food + service + atmosphere, so here u get only ridiculosely huge portions in an unfriendly, uncosy place. So, peolple, in Vienna must be more nice places to spend an evening, avoid Schnitzelwirt!

Heavenly! This place is really incredible and one of my favorite. The flavors are so fresh and juicy and crispy all at the same time. 100% recommend!

While not the prettiest, nicest or most chic restaurant in Vienna, this place has some of the best schnitzel in town without all the tourist overkill and price of Figlemuller or Plachuta. The schnitzel is hardy, gamey and bursting with flavor and even the accompanying traditional potato salad is substantial and delicious. These guys get everything right from the ratty interior, to the grumpy wait staff, to the huge tankards of good Austrian beer. This is not a place for the fainthearted, but if you are in the mood for a serious schnitzel meal there is nowhere better.

Went there with 2 work colleagues. when we got in, I asked for a table for 3 and was told to go and find one myself. This was a bit strange but we managed to get a table....

Service was a bit slow as they were very busy. However, once the staff took the order everything got out really quick.
We all go the Schnitzel which was huge and pretty good. It is hard to say it but 3 grown men, we could have gone with only 2 orders of the Schnitzel. Keep in mind the portions are very large!!

Given the portion size, the value is hard to bit. between the 3 of us, we paid 40 Euro (before tip) for the food and beer.
I highly recommend
