    I know you're here for fancy vodka cocktails, but if you're hungry, trust me, go for the fish plate. It's so good (esp when you make little sandwiches w/ tortilla things) I may go back just for those.

    You're here for the martinis, which are pricey, generous, and excellently made. My favorite is the French martini, a NYC original. It's no longer on the menu, but they will still make it for you.

    Cozy environment, nice option for either romantic drinks or chatting with friends. You must try the spinach and gruyere pizza with truffle oil. If you like vodka, must have the six-pack tasting.

    Yum yum yum. I always come for drinks but did not realize what a yummy menu they have. The appetizer platter is Delilsh and the pizza with cheese and truffle oil was absolutely heavenly.

    Cozy but not crowded, lively but not too loud. Perfect for conversation over cocktails (and by cocktails I mean an extensive vodka cocktail menu). Ideal date spot. #flex

    The toilets are upstairs & creepy. The upstairs is so weird. The street lamps adorning the walls are odd & exciting. The mirrors everywhere make it seem bigger & sound louder. The b00ze is thumbs up!

    I feel like I'm in a James Bond movie whenever come here. With soundtrack. New goal with my friend is to try every drink in the menu. Had the caviar martini. Fig-infused is next.

    My favorite bar in The City! Great cocktails ! Go for Moscow mule and Leninade! :)

    “No Happy Hour, but if you go before 7pm & buy your friend a drink, the bar will buy you one in return. Share the potato pancakes while you’re at it!” More at http://www.partyearth.com/venues/pravda.

    Happy hour: two amazing cocktails for $13. Plus homemade chips (and, if you order a Gogol, a pickled quail egg). Best deal on earth

    Here, the selection of vodka is far from short and the Homemade Chips with Crème Fraîche and Caviar among other food items are not to be overlooked.

    Caviar martini and the home made chips. Very intimate and cool space.

    Get White Sturgeon caviar,potato pancakes with creme fraiche. Vodka shots. Oysters, too. Feel like top communist party member.

    I recommend the Teacher's Pet. And if you need a snack, get the calamari. It's probably one of the best I've ever had!

    Swanky cocktail lounge with a tucked-away underground ambience. Legit but pricey cocktails. Felt like a bunch of people were on Ashley Madison dates.

    Underground Russian cocktail lounge. Mysterious atmosphere. Ask the bartender for their favorite vodka beverage.

    The caviar martini is the best and I love the potato pizza! There's a tarot card reader here sometimes. Ive seen her on Wednesdays.

    The infused vodka were fab. Had reservations for 830 and was upon arrival that the resturant would close at 10pm for a private event and we would have to leave. Ended up somewhere else for dinner.

    Ask for a sampler, called "Zakuski" - it's a 3-type appetizer set, a perfect light and diverse combo for a couple.

    whatcha doin' here if you aren't drinkin' a 'tini? as in, a martini!! and if you're feeling a lil frisky, spice it up with some caviar.. now, smack those lips & taste the awesome.

    Coconut martini is amazing! Topped with fresh coconut shavings and not too sweet

    If you're feeling really adventurous, the Gogol is very different: horseradish vodka and a pickled quail egg.

    I miss the old logo but this is still my favorite Dirty Martini venue in New York. Keep it simple: olives and Russian Standard!

    The orange juice mixer has grapefruit in it and it tastes amazing- that with vodka was superb. That caviar martini was mediocre at best...

    Try one of the vodka racks - six shots from all over the world! Or six shots of Pravda's own infusions.

    Unless you want to drink a pickle, don't try the caviar martini. After this, pickles will no longer be delicious.

    You might like this place if you're really into vodka... The ginger vodka I had on the rocks though was way too strong for me.

    The Leninade is the best example of simple = perfect. Citrus vodka, lemon juice and mint.
  • Maulik

    Liked the atmosphere (retro Russian) but turned off by fussy waitstaff. No beer selection on the menu, but if you ask you'll hear the list.

    Only brave the Gogol with savory food. Otherwise the horseradish overpowers and cuts your throat

    Don't order the Old Fashioned. Vodka is their thing obviously, I should have known better. Very good service though.

    Try the French martini with Ginger Vodka. Worth the change and the pineapple plays well with the hints of bitters.
