Russian Tea Room - NYC

For over eighty-five years, New York's defining cultural moments have taken place at Russian Tea Room. Ever since members of the Russian Imperial Ballet founded the restaurant in 1927, it has been a second home for boldface names and the intellectual elite-an exclusive enclave where actors, writers, politicians, and businessmen planned their next deals and feted their friends' latest Carnegie Hall performances.

"My teenage granddaughter and I have dinner at The Russian Tea room a few times each year when we go into the city overnight from southeastern Connecticut.
We love it for so many reasons. First the food is absolutely delicious and consistent. And the menu is unique. Second, the service is impeccable, attentive and accommodating. Third, the ambiance is very special. Those curved red leather booths are romantic, intimate, and make one feel slightly elegant! I know my LEAH thinks so. And the ornate paintings create an old world welcoming feeling.
The portions are generous. Yummy! It never disappoints!"

"I had always wanted to come to the Russian Tea Room, and I was not disappointed
on the evening of April 12th when a friend and I finally got there. It was after the
theater and the desserts and wines were excellent. The decor was magnificent,
especially the paintings. When we showed an interest in the history of the Tea Room,
the manager offered to take us upstairs for a tour of the 2nd floor. We loved seeing
the standing bear aquarium and the fish and hearing how the fish are cared for. It
was a marvelous conclusion to a wonderful Broadway evening.

"This was my second visit to the Russian Tea Room. The décor is lovely and the plates are nicely presented. What didn't impress us however was the service. I had to ask our waiter if we could order, for water, for the check etc. I appreciate that they may want to leave you alone and let you have a leisurely meal but it was getting a bit over the top. He seemed to be attentive to his other tables just not to us. (four ladies) The restaurant was not busy at the time we were there so it didn't seem like he was being pulled in too many directions."

"The Russian Tea Room is a very special place. The food was excellent, with wonderful service. The room is beautiful with fine paintings and Russian antiques. It is a wonderful setting, especially for a celebratory meal. It is a very peaceful restaurant."

"Classic New York restaurant which generations of New Yorkers as well as tourists frequent. Situated right next door to Carnegie Hall it is a beautiful if somewhat overdone paean to Imperial Russia. The food is what you would expect, stroganoff, blinis, caviar, etc. Ask prepared well. This restaurant is not just a destination, it is a good restaurant."

"Beautiful decor, but the food was subpar for the price. If you're looking for a good/fair priced "high tea" experience, head over to Tea & Sympathy or Alice's Teacup."

"I've had some absolutely wonderful dining experiences...fully expected this to be one - but was disappointed. First, note the restaurant is a landmark, in an expensive part of NYC. Prices are fairly pricey. On arrival, the host greeted me -but no smile :-( .... body language not welcoming - almost "snooty" -I hate that) We were a group of executive business women, dressed well. The server was serious - again - not warm. The ambience interesting - (it's a landmark) -carpets are tired, ladies' room dowdy. Food over all, good - but not outstanding (nothing to do with style of cuisine by the way) - I've just had better service, better experiences -it was just...."cold" . We dined at an early hour (6pm), on a Monday night. We ordered from the Prix Fixe menu ($65pp) - with 2 cocktails & a $45 bottle of wine + 20% tip, $500. Again, I'm making comparisons to similar restaurants - in my opinion, if the "experience" is wonderful & food not great, this would have received a better grade. By the way, we finished at 8pm & restaurant was still quite empty (Monday night - no theatre). For a revival of the restaurant, I expected much better. I will not return."
