Despite the reasonable (but pricey) food, we had a very strange experience here. Not only did they forget to bring my starter, but they refused to take it of the bill in the end. The horrible dinner music (think loud MIDIs) also didn't help. Location is very nice though.

Really good Russian food for my opinion I think the price is little excessive but we paid for all. With nice environment, the personal are really nice and take care of you. They serve everything even bread with butter like in france.
It's restaurant we do for special occasion.

The restaurant is located in a residential area, just by a beautiful small lake.
Inside you can admire the classy elegance and on top of that enjoy the phenomenal food and great service.
I had my Borscht soup and Beef Stroganoff. Both were made to perfection!
I will be back for sure!

The restaurant is located directly on the Patriarshiy Ponds. A nice location inside and outside for coffee, lunch, dinners, and receptions of any kind. The interior is cozy, set in a Russian style from the turn of the century. The service is very friendly and helpful and some staff speak English very well.
The food selection offers many traditional Russian dishes starting from salads (Mimosa), appetizers (minced herring), all the way through to the desserts. We found all dishes to be very tasty and nicely presented. They also manage to serve "European style", meaning all appetizers arrive at the same time, all main courses arrive at the same time, etc. This is not very common in Russia, where often dishes are brought to the table when they are ready.

The prices for the dishes are very fair as well.
Overall, the restaurant is a strong recommendation.

We booked a table at 7:30pm and arrived on time. Since there was a private functions downstairs, no one attending us, so we patiently wait and reading the menu. After 30 minutes, a waiter came to serve us but cannot speak English, then he served another table which came after us, but those guests left the table immediately after talked with that waiter. After 10 more minutes, we lost our patient and went to the receptionist for assist, afterwards a waiter came to serve us but told us the main course needs 2 hours to prepare. Then, we realized why those guests left immediately, we are so disappointed and left the restaurant.

Why the receptionist not advise us immediately when we enter the restaurant? We stayed there for 45 minutes without any foods and drinks, it is ridiculous services!
