This is my hideaway. I love the atmosphere here. I usually come for happy hour but dinner here has been spot on, too. They make delicious cocktails and the food is comforting. I love their borscht!

I loved the list of cocktails they had- so many fun, unique drinks to try! The dumplings were very tasty, and the salmon was perfect. I was pleasantly surprised how fun it was and will return!

My husband said the beef stroganoff was "wondrous!--its full rich flavor was a delight." The parsley mashed potatoes were exquisite--probably the best mashed potatoes he'd ever... More

I have visited and lived in Russia for work and it has been a long time since I've been there, but this was like coming "home" after an extended absence. I loved the ambiance, sights, smells, and the food..... AMAZING!!!! I can't wait to return next time I am in the area.

Festive, friendly restaurant for New Years Eve. Tasty food, the portions are large. The vodka is good, haven't been here in years for unknown reasons, but would go back anytime.
