"Very fun, enlightening dining experience! We were the only non-Russians dining that evening- the entirety of the restaurant were folks celebrating some sort of festive occasion. We were jealous of the vodka they had as the restaurant only serves beer & wine (good Czech beer though). The food was quite delicious. I loved the rabbit stew- it was a huge portion which tasted even better the second day when I had it for lunch. The cabbage rolls were a bit bland, and the stroganoff was solid."

"We were there on a rainy evening recently. Katerina, our server, was very very nice, taking the time to explain every item on the menu as this was our first visit. The four of us had a sampling of many dishes, including the borsch soup, the Olivia salad, the beef tongue, zucchini pancake, vegetarian pelmeny, stuffed cabbage, Hungarian goulash and blini for dessert. Every dish has its own flavor and they were all good. The tongue was outstanding, just about the best I've ever had.
We will certainly return and recommend it to our friends.

"This is a good place for a late (they open at 1) lunch or dinner. The menu includes most of the popular russian dishes, but it does not overwhelm or go over the top like some hard core russian places. There lots of appetizers, 3 types of soup, plenty of main courses. I recommend definitely trying the appetizers and sharing main course to keep the amount of food reasonable."

"I was alone and slightly rushed so I couldn't enjoy more than an entrée this evening. I chose the Stroganoff and I was very happy with my choice. I wish the waitress had told me a little more about their dish, i.e. made to order, therefore takes time; but I was surprised and pleased when it arrived.
They prepare their stroganoff with a puff pastry top almost like a very good pot pie. The meat and gravy was very flavorful and I enjoyed the addition of the pastry to sop up more of the liquid. What I didn't enjoy was that the waitress never gave the warning that the handle on the dish was extremely hot. It would have been nice if they added a mitten to that handle.

"Nothing was really memorable, the service was non-responsive, non-interactive and dry. The food was good and authentic but it just lacked seasoning and sincerity."

"Very good food from Eastern Europe. Only one waitress though which made the service a bit slow. I would recommend this place if you are looking for something different. It is not exactly easy to get to (unless you live in the area) so plan on driving."

"The food was delicious and interesting, especially perfect on a cold winter evening. I recommend one of the great choices of beer with the Hungarian Goulash, but my friends all had the Beef Stroganoff with wine. They loved it. We all had a great time, the service was wonderful and I can't wait to go back and try their borscht. Among other good looking choices...including the desserts!"

"I was looking for a place that would be open for Christmas dinner, trying to do something different from the turkey Buffett.
Our reservations were for 4 PM, we arrived a little early and were told they weren't allowing anyone else in the restaurant (there was a large party of 30 already seated). I reminded them that I had a reservation and with a little delay we were seated.
The room was loud due to the size of the space and the party before us, but that added to the ambiance and celebratory nature of the event (I don't think this would be a romantic destination though).
Service was excellent. Being that we are unfamiliar with Russian food we stuck to things we had at least heard of: Cornish game hens and beef stroganoff. The food was excellent as well, although not the American versions of these dishes (better!).
I will return when I am in the Richmond, it's a fun little, unpretentious destination with great food and friendly staff...
