Just came back from a trip to Vienna.

Restaurants rated as follows:

Ohel Moshe 3.5/5
Shefa 3.5/5
Meah Shearim 5/5 Deserves every single cubic foot of each star
Aleph Aleph 4/5
Novelino 3.8/5

I stayed in Der Wilhelmhof and it is fantastic and within about 10 minutes walk of the main jewish areas. (3 minute walk to Shefa) pricing is much much better then anything in Innerstadt and the quality in my opinion is just as good.
