Oh, Vienna: The Wolseley Hospitality Group's grand café has one misty-eyed for the city of cafés and giant schnitzels without ever leaving Marylebone. It’s not so much the food, though that’s a cold-weather dream: neat rye sourdough brötchen lined with beetroot and herring, followed by braised beef tafelspitz or pan-fried duck liver with grapes and redcurrants piled onto crisp rösti. It’s more the cumulative effect of the smart staff, low lights, leather accents, copious taxidermy and gorgeous views. This is a comfortable, well-padded kind of seduction, complete with cake plates brought to the table for you to choose from (go for the classic Sachertorte), and silver coupes filled with nutty ice cream. Mid-European wines are a feature, but so is coffee and a biscuit. We love it, although one disappointed punter thinks that Fischer’s needs to “up its game”, with the Ivy Café now grabbing headlines (and customers) on Marylebone High Street.

Very pleasant atmosphere, seating arrangements in this 'quiet' area off the main Euston Road. We vwere pleasantly surprised by the portion size of the inevitable Winer Schnitzel (very tasty and come with a good appetite!). the Austrian 'borsch (beetroot) soup was tasty and well presented. the 'two different bratwuirst' (fopr one combined price) didnt fully meet expectations but was filling enough! Service was acceptable, a good selection of wines and other drinks (buit with the a slightly unacceptable London premium!) made, overall, for a very comfortybale dinner arrangement.
I am not sure what happened to one of London's safest bets. But after dining there more than a 100 times, i had one of the worst service experiences imaginable. Slow, insulting, forgetful and cranky. And yet -- no apology, and insisted on adding service charge when asked not too. And charged for things we didnt order. And got our order wrong. Oh well. I guess times are tough.
This was a birthday dinner for our daughter and since I was born in Austria, we thought it would be a really nice place to try out. We were about 30 minutes early for our reservation, but they didn’t fuss and seated us straight away. The service was spot on with just the right amount of attention. Wiener Schnitzels are normally not served with a jus, but I’ve had that in other restaurants in Germany and since it was served in a little jug, you could just help yourself or not. It was actually very nice. Apple strudel was also quite nice, although I must say, I do a better version of it.
A very enjoyable evening was had by all.
