lovely small french place with perfect food and wines. Hidden in the noisy historic street of Kiev yet keep very unique atmosphere of a special place.

I've lived in this region for over 20 years and sometimes I get a little homesick, not for the traffic and noise but just for something a little more European. Vernisage is just about as close to an authentic Parisian bistro as you can get without getting on a plane. Its too small, its too crowded, its impossible to have... More

Great place for a romantic dinner or a party. They serve the best steaks in Kiev to my opinion, Salads and soups are also great. Service is amazing. A little bit more expensive than average, but good value for the quality you get.

This is my favorite place in Kiev to hold a party, and I have had MANY parties in Kiev. The food is GREAT and very reasonably priced. The BEST STEAK in Kiev. Good French wines at reasonable prices, which is almost impossible in Ukraine. The SERVICE is what makes this place GREAT. No matter your request, they will always accommodate... More

Serving real baguettes, salads & decent wine! A nice alternative if you're tired of borscht & always an oasis while shopping along Anriyivski Uzviz. I enjoyed many fine meals with friends @ Vernissage.

First the positive: nice small bistrot, huge portions, had salad with goatcheese and flash steak tartare (delicious but really too big). Pelmeni (typical Ukrainian ravioli) very good, very good house wine (red). Now the not so good: it is allowed to smoke in such a small restaurant, which can spoil a dinner as it seems smoking is pretty popular over... More

I have eaten here number of times. Large portions, good prices, good quality, reasonable service for Kiev. Decent meal in that area. Not a special trip - don't go out of your way, but if you are in the area (touristy) - its a good choice. I am surprised that it is 2nd choice overall in Kiev - I would... More

Louis has done a great service to Kiev, opening and running solid bistros that are a pleasure to visit. I never wrote a review of Vernissage b/c i wanted to be able to get a table. But since others have, and there are multiple locations, why not. There are lots of good things about the two locations of Vernissage which... More

Went with the collegue who is local. Nice small place at St. Andrews Descent. The menu is not only French. They have good fresh fish. Took the medium rare steak - was a bit more bloody than I expected. House wine was good (Italian). Enjoyed both the place and the food and would come back.
