  • Maryna GДизайн не плохой, но кухня оставляет желать лучшего!!! Пельмени, хинкали и лосось просто ужасные. Могу сказать замороженные из супермаркета

    33333 by Maryna G

  • Michael F.Decent place, kitschy an overdone compared to real Russian places, and definitely overpriced

    33333 by Michael F.

  • Chrissy ADrinks are a bit on the pricier side but their Moscow mule was pretty good. Food is good, nothing fancy or out of the extraordinary

  • Betsy JEverything

    55555 by Betsy J

  • Carina FThe food is only average for such high prices. Go somewhere else unless you want to experience the fancy environment, which is really nice. Food is not worth the money, unfortunately.

  • Allison LiExtremely expensive but I enjoyed the tea with cherries.

    55555 by Allison Li

  • Toad M.KOBE TASTING: not recommended - this dish was a platter of overcooked, badly seasoned steak. i've had real kobe beef and this was definitely not it.

    33333 by Toad M.

  • Evgenia L.Fancy and expensive place. Nobody speaks Russian there.

    33333 by Evgenia L.

  • Karl S.The French Onion Soup was OK; the Beef Stroganoff would have been good (though way overpriced) if it hadn't been *so* overwhelmed with the truffle. It was so strong it was nauseating. Avoid, too $$$
