I had dinner here yesterday. I ordered borscht and a sirloin steak, and my date had a green salad and some kind of shrimp dish.
I was absolutely satisfied. The borscht was the best I'd tasted, and my steak was prepared excellently and was very tasty. My date was similar satisfied with her dish.
The staff was simply excellent. They were friendly and helpful. Attentive when needed, and invisible when I was deep in conversation. They had a rare attention to detail that I often don't find in Russia.
The atmosphere is a little better for groups. I was seated with my date (on a slow night) at a table that could easily seat six people, so I felt a little out of place. But if you had a crowd of six people, and wanted to blow through a metric ton of money for an evening of awesome food, awesome service and awesome wine and awesome conversation with your friends, it could be ideal. There are some other places in the city in this price range that are better if you just want a romantic evening gazing at your partner.
I was satisfied and I am sure I will come here again.
