Yuck experience – I never reserve to such words, but the customer service SUCKED. The manager was very unprofessional: rude and disrespectful to the guests of a private party. He walked in and started shouting to put away the coats right in the middle of a toast (it was a private room for a 70th jubilee). Russian word "быдло" would precisely describe him. (That's the only thing we might remember out of the whole experience: we are back in Russia.) Being the "face" of the restaurant he absolutely beat out any desire to come back to this place. With the economy in decline and the abundance of Russian restaurants in the area, the owner should think twice who to choose to meet and greet the guests.
As for food: nothing special if you compare to other places in the area, but decent. Fried potatoes were really good; sushi rolls were ok. The duck dish at our side of the table had no meat--only fat. The party started at 7, but the last 2 entrees were brought in after 11.15pm: ouch. It was not due to the abundance of dishes, but to the big break between some of the courses.
Once you have sampled the food and customer service of the famous NYC restaurants, it's hard to compare. However, if you are into Russian banquet-style celebration, my suggestion is to choose other places where the customer service exists.
BEST WEDDING EVER – It was my wedding. The music was fantastic, unbelieveable service, outstanding food, and the owner is a sweetheart. I'd recommend this restaurant to anybody who is willing to celebrate their wedding.
Avoid this place- the worst banquets – I ordered a banquet to celebrate my bithday. The worst customer service, lazy waiters, terrible music and greedy manager. It was my first and last time there. Do not recommend.
first time visit – Very pleasent-spacious, great service, great food, good value. It felt very cozy.
