“Atrocious take on Russian food!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2009

I am Russian/American, and I can honestly say, this was one of the worst Russian restaurants I've ever been to. We have ordered a lot of Russian classics, since we had 9 people, and all of them (borscht, Olivie salad, mushroom julien, pot roast, salad "Nej'nost') were only so-so.

The service was horrible! We had to ask 4 times to bring drinks for 3 of the people! All of the food was already out by the time they brought out the drinks. Now check this out: they make you PAY for bread AND butter separately! As a Russian, I found that insulting!

The atmosphere was totally uninteresting - no Russian decor at all, a horrid, barely in tune Russian band playing 70's American classics and Russian pop songs.

My advice - avoid Traktirr Pushkin at all costs!
