I very much enjoyed my dinner here recently (because I'm Russian and love Russian food). Started out with a salad and some prosecco for the evening. My date sampled one of the flavored vodkas. There really are So many to choose from, he

I didn't know I was leaving NY and stepping into a little Russian realm complete with the art and music. The cranberry vodka was too good! (I guess they infuse them there) Live music on the grand piano was a nice touch -a young russian

Pros: Everything

Cons: Crowded but is this bad?

We went here after the theatre and everything was just wonderful except the prices. This is a great place for a celebration, so much fun, this restaurant is beautifully decorated and you really feel like you might be back in Tarist Russia. Great time.

This restaurant is great overall experience. From the minute you walk in you know you are in for something different. The atmosphere in this place is extremely easy going and welcoming. The decor reminds me of a Russian dinning room from

What is the reason for me to go to New York as often as I do - food!!!!! I go there to check out the new (and the old) Russian restuarants. I have gone to plenty and Russian Samovar really stands out by the food quality and personal service. Service in Russian Rests usually is not all that great - but here, everyone is pleasant and sweet. I wil be back

Good russian food outside the home is hard to come by. RUssian restuarants are more about getting big groups together, getting drunk, and having a blast. I had a good time and the vibe was very jovial, but the food was pricey and less than
