Did Godel and Wittgenstein ever meet?

Wittgenstein met with members of the Vienna Circle on a few occasions. So did Godel. Did the two ever meet, in Vienna at that time or otherwise?

According to the book There's Something About Godel: "Godel and Wittgenstein were contemporary without ever meeting" (p. 190) The passage goes on to explain how they felt about each others' work. (Mostly -not so good.)
