Dinner was OK, not the meat, but the ambiance was so perfect and also the concert was enjoyable, even my two teenagers did enjoy it. Made our night memorable, and the acoustic in Le Orangerie was actually pretty good
Great dinner and wonderful performance in the finest settings. An experience to experience.
We really enjoyed this evening out.
Our dinner was served in Cafe Restaurant Residenz I understand location can vary. Don't let the word Cafe put you off, although small, it is opulent inside with: gilt, chandeliers, artwork and attentive service. Food was pleasant, not exciting, but competent, Viennese cuisine the menu was exactly as published on the website. I personally enjoyed feeling that I was dining at an Imperial Palace. Oddly, some other reviewers seemed to feel that everything should actually be in a royal stateroom, but I think that's a bit naive.
The concert in the Orangerie was excellent, a small troup comprising Chamber Orchestra, two Opera singers and two ballet dancers. Inevitably the program was Mozart and Strauss, and you'll recognize many pieces.
As other reviewers have mentioned: there could be some long walks involved, dinner is quite a long distance from the concert. Especially if you make the mistake of going to the wrong location first. TIP: the map and signs at the U-bahn point to the wrong ticket office, and by the time you get there in the evening this is occupied by a solitary cleaner. The actual concert ticket office is just opposite the station and not well marked but is described exactly on the reservation.
Inevitably, you are going to arrive early. Rather than just hanging about, we made an advantage of this by arriving even earlier and going for a walk in the extensive gardens all free. The only challenge with this is finding a route that gets you to the right place: look carefully at the map - a wrong turn can be about a 1 km detour, this place is huge!
Loved it! The concert was great and so was the dinner. One advice, make sure to arrive at the palace the latest by 1 pm. We arrived by 4 pm and we're not able to see the palace . However, the staff arranged for us to see it the following day.
Food very good and restaurant and staff excellent. Concert was superb. Tickets for meal and concert have to be picked up at Orangery office with online voucher prior to dinner. This had not been explained on the voucher. Not a major inconvenience as office opposite Underground exit.
Dinner was very good, concert was ok. Comparing the concert at the Orangerie and the Musikverein concert, I would say the Musikverein was better. The singers and dancers were good and the orchestra played very well.
The seats are very close to each other, and everything was full.We had seating A, closer to the orchestra so it was nice.
We enjoyed it overall.
Wonderful evening.Concert was in the Palace not the orangerie so it was very special.
This was amazing. There was an engagement at the original concert hall so the concert was held on the main ballroom of the Schonbrunn palace.
Very well organised the dinner was very good although wine a bit pricey. The concernt was excellent and included opera and ballet as well as the orchestra. A really enjoyable evening in wonderful surroundings.
The concert took place in a magnificent room inside the palace. It was a wonderful mixture of Mozart and Shubert music with two soloists. A great evening and we thoroughly enjoyed it. An evening not to be missed.
Wonderful evening. The dinner was delicious in lovely surroundings. The concert was both varied with orchestra, opera and ballet, and also, surprisingly very amusing. The very talented artists also performed some tongue in cheek skits. Altogether a very enjoyable and memorable evening.
Excellent experience. God was very good and the music was great! Will do it again when in Vienna.
Excellent evening. Dinner a bit average, but venue and concert were terrific. Easy access to the venue from the train is a good way to travel
It was fantastic. I was very impressed with both dinner and concert.
