Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is the second time I visit the Schengen Restaurant. First time about 3 years ago it was great. This time: Service was nice attentiv but not more. Never ask if you need something more. For the food you don't need to come again. Even...with my age where you don't feel so hungry anymore, I left hungry! Appeticer Aubergine backed was hot, but sauce to blend. Bread served with it full portion 4 slicecs, cold and creamy butter served which tested like vegetable oil. Filet Steak strange how the blood was running out of a medium steak, 2 teaspoons of Carrot purée wit 2 small sticks of raw carrots and a small piece of raw green onion. Lamb neck Stew was tender and sauce was tasty. Potatoes served with it nice and tasty. 4 rancid Patato Chips ruins the nice flavour. Not recommended.More

Ok. I first visited this restaurant in 2014 (I thought it was another restaurant in the same premises but waiter said it was actually Shengen back then). The experience back then was amazing. Excellent food. Green curry, chilli con carne - I think I tried...those first time in here and was truly amazed. I don't often visit the city and I attempted to find this restaurant again later but forgot where it was. Now suddenly stumbled upon it and we went again. Completely different menu but again overwhelming. I don't think the chef or any of the staff are same as in 2014 but keeping constanly the highest level of quality says a lot about the devotion of the owners. Thank you and hope to come again sooner next time. Regarding recommendations - the hummus is perfect, the deer tartar is super cool.More

It was the worst experience in Russia I've ever had. The table was booked several days before the visit. When we came to the restaurant manager Daria told us that we must finish our dinner before 8 pm (our booking was for 6pm). It was...a very unpleasant surprise because no one told me about any time limits when the booking was made. The only option that we were offered was a very small table for two in the middle (not the one I booked and there was three of us). No other option was offered. Daria didn't even try to resolve the situation or apologize for this situation. The evening with my parents whom I haven't seen for almost two years was totally ruined. I can't say anything about the food because after this dialogue no one even tried to serve us, and we had to leave the restaurant and look for another place to dine in. Should also mention that the manager and all other staff had no masks on their faces. It's absolutely unacceptable during the pandemic situation in the world. As well as that the manager Daria has no skills in problem- solving and customer service. Summary: I will never recommend this place to my local and international friends because of its disgusting service. And I do hope that the restaurant owner(s) will find a manager corresponding to the quality of the premises.More

Finally we visited Schengen for the first time. To say that we are content would be an understatement, we are delighted! It is really cozy, comfortable, pleasant and very tasty here. The kitchen is amazing. I don't know how they make venison so tender. The...lamb's neck and duck breast were melting in our mouths, and we were melting with the pleasure of the taste. Serving dishes is a delight for the eyes. And great wine. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the evening! Наконец-то мы впервые посетили Schengen. Сказать что мы довольны было бы преуменьшением, мы в восторге! Здесь действительно уютно, комфортно, приятно и очень вкусно. Кухня удивительная. Не представляю, как они делают оленину такой нежной. Шея ягненка и утиная грудка тоже таяли во рту, а мы таяли от наслаждения вкусом. Подача блюд услада для глаз визуала. И великолепное вино. Официант была очень доброжелательна и предупредительна. Мы получили настоящее удовольствие от вечера!More

We booked dinner for 7.30pm at Schengen online which was a little bit fancy. Our food was great but very small portions (I'm talking ~6 bits of pasta, for example). But that meant we could have 3 courses and 2 cocktails each. It was one...of our biggest bills we'd ever racked up in Russia, 4800 rub, but each AU$30 which was a bargain considering all the dishes we had. Just a lot for Russia!More

Stumbled upon this cosy bistro on a rainy night in St.Petersburg. There were 2 available tables, presumably as it was a Monday night. Otherwise a booking would be essential. The waitresses were very friendly and efficient. The service was prompt. The food was fabulous..... mains...of duck and venison cooked to perfection with interesting flavours and accompaniments. Excellent short selection of wines by the glass. Even a refreshing complimentary liqueur after dessert! A very pleasant evening after a busy day exploring this wonderful city! ( It was also extremely good value). Thank you!More
