Hi, any recommendation places to have dinner after enjoying the show at State Opera House?
Reserve in advance. In many restaurants, last order will be before opera is over. Obviously, some restaurants around the opera will wait for people cioming from the opera but certainly not all of them.

Are you looking for something really upscale or something more traditional?
Hi Richard, since it will be late evening after the show. We prefer more traditional food / light foods will do.
Find out when your opera ends and make a fast exit!
Make a reservation and let them know that you are coming from the opera.
“Local fare” is not of the “light, late night kind” – so have a look at their menues. May be the Führich and the Do&Co come out best!

If you're just looking for something simple and authentic, you can try Bier und Bierli at Operngasse 12.
It's across the Ring from the opera house, it's open until midnight (last orders 11 pm), and it serves simple, pretty decent (though not necessarily light!) Austrian food.
It's also downright cheap by center-city standards -- much cheaper than any of the restaurants listed above.
