We have been patronizing RVR for over twenty years. For a good reason. But no more. Over the last several years it started going downhill: food has gotten worse and so has the service. Gone are smiles of energetic waitresses, replaced by tired and rushed...More

Was looking for a place that is more interesting than the hotel bar to have a drink. And this was it! A web search for the best martinis revealed the Russian Vodka Room. Just 4 blocks away - so convenient that we had to go....More

I don't know if it was just my date that was hot or this place but it was an exotic and intoxicating evening. We ordered two different flavors of the $28 decanters along with a huge bowl full of muscles drenched in butter. Yum. I...More

This is a wonderful spot and loved it so much that we had a wedding post party here years ago. They serve some nice dishes and can accommodate a lot of people. Just love the homey atmosphere and easy to get to.

We stopped by here before going to see the Jersey Boys and we had the most delicious cocktail. Lovely little bar and the food looked great.

This little hidden gem is a fabulous place to unwind after a busy day in the city. Really laid back, cool atmosphere, great live music. Food looked and smelt delicious. Reasonably priced drinks, easy to find and great service.

If you're open to trying some different foods & flavored vodka this is a nice happy hour spot. The place looks and feels like an old time NYC bar which is exactly what it is in the theater district. People are friendly and service helpful.
