I already have booked the Thursday Night Overpriced Buffet at the Kunsthistorisches (65 EU) . Which others? And what do they offer?
Breakfast - Meierei, Ulrich, Cafe Ansari, Joseph Brot (Landstrasse), Neni at Naschmarkt
Lunch - Wurstelstand at Albertina (look for green rabbit), Schachtelwirt, Miznon, Palmenhaus, Jonathan & Sieglinde
Afternoon Coffee - Demel, Diglas, Prueckel, Sperl, Vollpension
Dinner - Plachutta, Figlmuller, Steierereck, any heuriger in Stammersdorf, Glacis Beisl, Cafe Anzengruber (best schnitzel), Mamamon
I would add that not many people probably look in this forum, so I suggest moving you question over to the Austria forum.
PS - I don't know anyone who has do the KHM evening buffet as I think it is a tourist thing.
This restaurant I always go to on every trip to Vienna, yes, it's in the tourist area near the Staatsoper, Kärntnerstraße, Cafe Sacher, the Albertina, the Tourist Office, and between the Karlsplatz and the Stephansplatz U-Bahn Stationen.
The restaurant is "Rosenberger" on Maysedergasse 2 (1010 Wien), off of Kärntnerstraße. Walk along Kärntnerstraße (Fußgängerbereich) from Stephansplatz U-Bahb station, the restaurant is on your right hand side; conversely, if you are coming from the Karlsplatz station, pass the Staatsoper and Cafe Sacher, Rosenberger is on your left hand side.

Contrary to the other two restaurants i mentioned, this place takes US credit cards, a little bit pricier but, shall we say, ganz empfehlenswert. It's good place for lunch, dinner ..get there before 19:00 hrs, Austrian/German cuisine.
Fred - I've been there. Isn't it a weird buffet kind of place? Was not memorable for me in any way.
Yes, Rosenberger is buffet style, no way weird. It offers good choices, but due to its location the Schnitzel is a bit pricey. I never tried any of the desserts so I can't speak to that. It is a good place to go to if you're hungry, don't want to wait, want some peace and quiet, and it always has unoccupied tables.
thanks to both of you! Suggestions are greatly appreciated, and will be tried.
This restaurant I went to twice since the first time on this trip I found it worthy of a second meal, so, noch was zu empfehlen...I don't know the exact name, can't recall that. It could be called: "Wiener WIA-ZHAUS" at Gusshausstraße 24. Get to the Karlsplatz U-Bahn station, It's a long extended station (also the station where Strauss waltzes coming out of the WC), get to the Karlskirche, then go Karlsgasse, Gußhausstraße is ca. 250 meters up. If you know the TU is, it's on the other side. I don't believe the place takes a credit card.
If you want to know of a small restaurant (Arsenalstuben) close to the Arsenal, where the HGM (Heeresgeschichtlichesmuseum) is located, I can give that information too, went there three times in the afternoon, sort like a down-home place. It's tucked away, never saw any tourists there, all German speaking. Don't know about credit cards. I always paid in cash, easier that way. The place is much cheaper than "Rosenberger"
The food at Figlmullers was some of the best we had in Vienna. And the atmosphere was most pleasant. They have two regular restaurant locations and the one we prefer is the one on Backerstrasse near St Stephens. They also have a couple of tavern type eateries and an upscale place. Their web site is quite good so just google them and see what you think.
Great - am writing down all these suggestions.
We love 3/4 Takt on Praterstrausse - you can hear the schnitzel being pounded in the kitchen!
Lol - - in three-quarter (Waltz) time??? :-)
