Summary

“Reminiscent of a grand café in turn-of-the-century Vienna” – Corbin & King’s “warm, cosy, and gemutlich” operation has “a Mittel-european vibe of posh coats, lipstick and gossip”, and is just the place to hole up on a winter’s day in particular. Its “broad and comforting menu” of Austro-Germanic fare does have many fans (who say “the schnitzel is a must-have”), but can also seem “stodgy and also rather overpriced”. Top Tip – “if you’ve never had Gröstl for breakfast, go now! Birchermüsli... Kassler Ham and boiled eggs on proper rye sourdough… herrings and kippers. And yes, strudel IS an acceptable breakfast food! With Einspanner coffee (topped with whipped cream), a lovely start to the day. Embrace the atmosphere… and don’t make any plans for lunch!”

Summary

“Step into old-world Vienna” at Corbin & King’s “elegant” re-creation of a “classic Austrian-themed café” (with menu to match) in Marylebone. Its strongest features are the “splendid” atmosphere – “cosy, buzzy and oozing charm” – and “very pleasant service”, but its “reliable, if unadventurous dishes” (schnitzel, veal, etc) received a consistently good rep this year: “we visit Austria twice a year and when we need an Austrian food fix we always go here!” Top Tip: “great fun for a cake stop”.

Summary

“You feel like you are in a grand coffee shop in Vienna”, at Corbin & King’s “beautiful, wood-panelled” Marylebone venture, whose “buzzy” (quite “noisy”) quarters are particularly “ideal for a winter meal”. The food splits opinion – to fans its schnitzel and wurst are “a stodgy, warm embrace”, but there’s also quite a feeling that “while it’s fun for a change, at the price, it needs more polish”.

Summary

Corbin & King’s “meticulous interpretation of a classic Austrian/German restaurant” in Marylebone “captures the essence of Mitteleuropa perfectly”“the food is a slightly stodgy, warm embrace”, and the “beautiful, deeply coloured, panelled interior” creates a very “gemutlich” ambience. Top Menu Tip – “delicious schnitzel”.

"Reminiscent of a grand café in Vienna. Good choice of Austrian food specialities. I really enjoy the choice of herrings and also frankfurters. The beef in a pot and Wiener Schnitzel are both excellent. Tables packed in very close together with very little privacy. I have been underwhelmed by their wines; enjoying many better ones in Vienna itself"

"A vegan hell. However if you're not vegan then its fun in an ersatz gemütlich sort of way. If you are vegan skip it all and go straight for the poppy seed cake."

"The Hardens Guide last year was truly accurate: the food is not special at all, but it is satisfactory. The atmosphere is excellent, and the restaurant really does transport one to a different realm. Recommended, but not unmissable."
