    You go for the vodka, not the service. Piano player is a good touch. Must try 6 flavor option for $33. Grapefruit, horseradish, ginger, peach apricot, pineapple are great flavors.

    When going to the Russian Vodak Room, order the pickled vegetable platter; sucking the pulp out of a brined tomato is a life-changing Russian culinary tradition rarely experienced in Manhattan. Read more

    One of the most amazing and bizarre places in NYC. Great vodkas in a late 60's atmosphere. From piano music to the uncomfortable couch, everything is awkward, but somehow everything works just fine.

    Great fusion vodka selection. Layla and the rest of the musicians were great as well. Fun atmosphere, and had a really good time. Live music every Friday and Saturday night!!!

    The infused vodkas aren't really worth the effort. Just get you vodka chilled if you want less vodka flavor. For me, I love the natural flavor of vodka. The burrata salad is delicious and big.

    My fave Russian place in Manhattan. All food was great, drink-wise loved the horseradish Bloody Mary. There's a wide selection of infused vodkas, the best I've seen so far!

    The horseradish vodka is worth trying but will require one to have an acquired taste to truly enjoy it all night. Live piano is the cherry on top. It makes your experience slightly less overwhelming.

    Happy hour till 7pm for $6 flavored martinis that were strong. Gravlax platter with potato pancakes were awesome $16. Crab cakes were only ok, 2 for $12

    It's a vodka room, let your imagination take you away! A wall of it, ask the bartender for a recommendation...best served ice cold and in a shot glass. Zyr is my favorite.

    Good food, good drinks. Horseradish vodka is great, especially in the Bloody Mary. For food, try the crab cakes, pelmeni, and olivye!

    Try the dirty martini, it’s the best one in the neighborhood. If you sit at the bar, it’s the best one in the World.

    My favorite Midtown Manhattan bar. Great mix of characters and Russian ambiance. It's a small space that fills up fast. Warning: the martinis are mean and strong.

    Enjoy one of 53 different vodkas - $3 shots during happy hour. You’ll feel like you’re walking into a Russian mafia film.

    Waitress are cold but they are Russian. Take only one cocktail it is worth two in alcohol. Great place to start a night, be careful you might finish there.

    Pretend you’re a Soviet-era spy laying low in this dark lounge as you pop mouthfuls of caviar and blini, chased with ice cold house-infused vodka and accompanied by live piano music. - Buzzfeed

    The peach martini is surprisingly very good and refreshing! Perfect after a long and exhausting day at work.

    This place has been going downhill for years, the food, atmosphere, sadly no longer a cool place to hang out

    the standout flavor of infused vodka was blueberry vanilla bean. the garlic/pepper/dill was also surprisingly good, for those who like savory flavors.

    The filthy Russian!!! Best vodka martini in the city. Generous with the gorgonzola stuffed olives.

    The horseradish vodka-based cocktail definitely lived up to its name but was way too much. None of the novelty cocktails sounded especially appealing. Good appetizers though!

    This place is the greatest. Sit at the bar and order the vodka sampler. Pick horseradish and garlic as two of the flavors.

    Always ask if there are other vodka infusions besides the ones on the menu. We got to try blueberry and mango flavors that way.
