Russian Samovar Reviews List

Russian Samovar

This Theater District gem is decorated with a charming collection of eponymous samovars. The banquette-lined main room adds an air of grandeur while maintaining a comfortable and welcoming vibe. Known for its flavored vodkas—at least a dozen herb and/or fruit infused varieties are available. There is also a full menu of Russian and Georgian classic comfort fare like borsht, pelmeni, and of course caviar. We are a pleasant place to visit while away for a few hours with friends or perhaps to romance a new interest, Russian style.

"I didn't expect the Russian Tea Room but was initially surprised at the casual decor and loud piped in music. But am I ever glad I stuck with it. The place was filled with locals and the food was outstanding. Best of all, a fellow diner joined the pianist for a rousing round of songs."

"Was visiting New York and came across this place near the hotel. The food was very good and the bar scene was hopping. They even had live music (sorta jazzy) during dinner. It was lovely and I would go again."

"A fun and exiting meal set to Russian music and singing.
Also with plenty of dancing. Enjoyed mushroom pirozhki and the Ukha soup with sturgeon,salmon and pike. Delicious. We had rabbit for our main course and I was spectacular. Exotic fun and romantic. Great evening. Will be visiting here often.

"I love the Russian Samovar and make a point of eating there every time I am in New York City. While it has more than Russian dishes on the menu, I go there for my favorite Russian food: Borscht, Olivier salad, Pelmeni. When my husband is with me, we share the chicken Tabaka. I see other wonderful sounding dishes on the menu, but always end up ordering the same things. The atmosphere is great, with a piano player, memorabilia on the walls, and lots of red. As a whole I think it is a great dining experience and it is well-located in the theatre district."

"Our third visit. Food was very good -- better than expected --- the vodka varieties are impressive, and delicious. Good service. Quiet enough to talk. GO!"

"This was my first time at the Russian Samovar. It was really good! The dumplings were wonderful as was the Russian beer. I had the Chicken Kiev, which was very good. The breading was nice and crispy and the chicken was moist. However, the mashed potatoes were a bit bland and the garlic and butter in the middle of the chicken was a bit salty (and I love salt). The chocolate rum ball was delicious. The best part was the live music they had throughout the night. A pianist performed for a bit before another pianist, violinist and two singers came out. They were all excellent and played a variety of Russian folk songs. I highly recommend just going for that!"

"You have no better option than this long standing Theatre District gem. Great Russian dishes, flavored vodkas, and the warm hospitality of the maitre d' Moun, sent me out back into the snow with a warm and marvelous feeling. Recommended: blini with caviar, chicken kiev, amazing sour cream cake for dessert with too many layers to count. Delicious!"
