Best place for a get together or after work party. Live music sets the right mood, staff is amazing especially the bartender Pavel who is the core of a guaranteed fun night!
Don't worry. If you can't pay your bill, they'll just arrange you into a marriage.
Sex in the City episode shot upstairs, Manchurian candidate with Frank Sinatra shot at the bar, used to be Jilly's of the Rat Pack fame..a true landmark of NYC
the savory vodkas - dill, horseradish, garlic, coriander - are the way to go.
Be ready for shots
Horseradish vodka is the best ;)
If you like tea- you must order the tea and stir in the cherry preserves it's AMAZING- especially paired with some of the cranberry infused vodka (my fav).
Great food; great entertainment!
order the pickled vegies.
Enjoyed the live music and food
My experience and review on the Russian Samovar by Carlos Melia Recommends @
Just go for it. Order an ounce of caviar and a very cold shot of vodka for each person...comes with the most amazing blinis
Chicken Kavka (or something) is amazing!
Amazing atmosphere, perfect evening of FUN !!!
Amazing food, russian music, and raspberry martini! The best👏
Food is good. Service is slower than a special ed turtle.
Try the Beluga Gold Vodka Martini - A very reasonable martini before going to see "Big Fish" on broadway at the Neil Simon Theater.
Great and strong cocktails, try KGB Martini or Bloody Dasha
Don't fool around with single shots; just go for a carafe of one of the vodkas.
Infused vodka. And get 20% off here on weekdays with the DailyGobble app.
Friends don't let friends order too many fruity vodkas or friends help friends puke in taxis.
the peach vodka is a must
fuzzy math warning. ordered 3 shots. charged for 5. waitress says "come-on it's only $13". we decided not to tip.
Russian style:) delicious Russian food and live music. Nice waiters. I
Great food! Classical Russian style atmosphere! Long live Roman Kaplan!
Loved the blintzes, borscht and infused vodkas. The closest thing to being in a club in Russia.
Trio of salads, Veal Pelmeni, Lamb Shank, and Pomegranate Infused Vodka. Exquisite.
Very good Russian home food, & live Music! I feel at home. Pickled platter==== must order two plates next time!
Great fun place
Horseradish martini. Do it.
You must try Beef stroganoff and, of course, Borsht - the best in NYC! Trust me - I'm Russian:)
This place is amazing dont let anyone fool yoy!
The spot where Jilly's once stood.
Best Russian place in NY
Lobster salad the best!!!)
I'm not familiar enough with Russian food to be much of a judge, but I love the vibe and live music (piano and Russian ballads)
Good music - good food - good bar crowd - comfortable place to hand out
Changed owners around end of 2011 - ignore older tips
Amazing place, lunch meals are delicious
Get the vodka!
Just ask for a beer
Horseradish vodka is amazing.
Идеально подходит для тех, кто хочет отведать русской кухни и окунуться в домашнюю атмосферу в NY) Русская музыка, огромное кол-во наших соотечественников делают это место центром русской культуры:)
Великолепная, доброжелательная атмосфера! Лучший в НЙ

Великолепнейшее место. Прекрасный персонал, очень душевные бармены и официанты, вкусные коктейли и совершенно не московские цены. Всем быть здесь и не раз, это даже лучше, чем Empire State!
