    One of the rare places in NY that serves Beluga vodka. Combine it with pelmeni (Russian dumplings) and life is wonderful!

    We loved the dumplings, zucchini pancakes, marinated mushrooms, and the smoked salmon and caviar with crepes were outstanding. Great cocktails too!

    Make a reservation, and enjoy the Russian Table for two! The food is off the charts – order the Pelmeni, the Beef Stroganoff and Rabbit Stew. We’re coming for brunch soon!

    This place is amazingly authentic. Everything from the pelmeni, the herring under a fur coat, the crochet doilies and the glasses that are perfect for both water and vodka.

    Hi guys :) Travel back to old Russia with Mari Vanna's elegant décor, traditional Russian food, and smiling staff. Try their infused vodka and herring with scallions. The combination is divine.

    Amazing Russian Food with plenty of fun entertainment. Order blini with salmon and red caviar, Siberian pelmeni, kotletki, you really can’t go wrong with anything. Tell them it’s your birthday ;)

    A beautiful restaurant with a very fun, eclectic vibe. Be sure to order the vodka flights, the Pierogi, and the Chicken Kiev.

    According to my Russian friend, it felt like we were inside her grandma's home. Decor is really cool, and wait staff friendly. Very high quality and delicious food. The pelmeni are a must-order.

    I'm not super familiar with Russian food, so cannot speak to the authenticity, but everything we ordered was delicious. Cured herring & pirozhok were great, but the horseradish vodka was the standout!

    Excellent festive destination for groups. Selection of traditional Russian dishes and infused vodka. Doll house decor. Beef kebab is delicious.

    As a Russian who grew up on Russian food, Mari Vanna is the only Russian restaurant that comes slightly close to what my mother cooks. Highly recommended.

    Come here for the ambiance, the food less so. It's a really fun ambiance (live music), with kitschy decor. Potato salad and herring are misses; the borscht, tasty.

    I like the russian transplant - almost as good as the moscow (semi) original. Liked the pelmeni, the caviar, as well as the cocktails. Seems to be a bit of a pickup place, but did not really test it

    The most adorable Russian restaurant ever - Russian newspapers as wallpaper, flower pots at the entrance, and wood backed dining room chairs. Feels like a life-sized dollhouse. Try the borscht!

    The food is great, especially borsh is just fantastic, music is loud, so it s good for big companies. The stuff sings birthdays songs like for their own friends :)

    If you split the caviar and salmon blinis, pelmeni, and borscht between 2 people, you'll be golden.

    The food is just so delicious and the service is exceptional. We had to wait a little extra for our food, but the waiter showered us with free drinks, even vodka shots, to apologize for the delay!

    The cutesy décor sets an inviting mood for intimacy and the list of house-infused vodkas and specialty martinis will wow anyone - we recommend a carafe of the horseradish vodka. Read more

    The flavored vodkas are great. Not too sweet, smooth, unique flavor combinations like seaberry and honey and pepper.

    If you think you are going to drink like the Russians, start training long before you walk through these doors! Infused vodkas will make you swoon~cranberry, strawberry, cucumber & dill for starters..
