    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

    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!!!

    “One night, a bartender…was asked to name her favorite thing on the menu. For just a moment, her face softened and she lit up: ‘The meat dumplings are fantastic.’” Read more

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 served ice cold and in a shot glass. Zyr is my favorite.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

    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

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

    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!

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