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.

"This place is for enjoying their special interior design. No more than that.
Food is so so, their service is nothing special like those local restaurants or even worse.
Their interior design is quite special and high-end style but their service level is not impressive at all comparing to their ambiance.
I made an reservation for lunch and I asked them to sit the sofa instead of regular chair seat.
There was one sofa seat available but they were making lame excuse that the seat is for 3 people. Of course I knew that it's lie because most of group of 2 were sitting on the sofa seats.
So obvious. I know they were doing that to try to make money but since I paid for it. I didn't appreciate at all.

"From I hear on the internet this place has fancy decoration, but the food is surprisingly good. I try the restaurant week menu. The short rib and salmon are delicious. I especially like the pasta comes with the short rib. This restaurant's booths look nice and comfy with a feeling of 80s."

"I had to go back here to rewrite the history of the image I was left with the last time I visited, which was before the current renovation. The interior is much better then my last visit, a very ornate ground floor dining room with very opulent finishes and a very comfortable large pink booth to sit in. Came here for restaurant week. Food was served in descent portions with nothing that was outstanding, they were standard American Russian fare that was tasty. But nothing to oogle over. Just a pleasant dining experience in a pleasant dining room with descent food. It's probably more meaningful to come here with a lover. And OH! the overhanging antique clock was off by 10 minutes, so don't rely on it for time."

"Considering the Russian Tea room's great reputation, the bread was served cold, not even room temperature, and the salmon was overcooked, in fact the waiter didn't even ask us how we would like it cooked. Hence, the dining experience was disappointing. Otherwise the ambience was good."

"Came here for restaurant week and thoroughly expected the venue to be awesome which totally lived up to the hype. The red booths and decorations are very cool and ostentatious and the staff was nice enough to open up the upper level so that we could see the famous crystal bear.
I was surprised however with how good the food was. The borscht was quite good and the stroganoff was noticeably better than and I have every had before."

"Been coming to this place on and off for about 25 years. It's a NY institution, beautiful decor and old world charm. In short it's a gem and should be appreciated while we still have it. The ambiance is great and the food is good. My last visit I had a veal chop and the taste was a little on the strange side. The drinks are very overpriced and of course the meal is very expensive in its entirety. I think people should go though to enjoy the history and ambiance of this landmark restaurant. I have seldom seen a more beautiful dining room. Can you get better food in NY? Sure but this place is still special."

"We had brunch at the RTR on a Sunday. Food was very good: tea, biscuits and cherries were very great as well as all of our courses . The room is beautiful, a bit touristic but rich in details that you can enjoy and with relaxing background music. The only downside was service: our server was kind but we definitely felt very rushed. We were enjoying the place and company, but even though there still were several empty tables around us he came by 3 times to check if we were ready to pay; even after bringing back the receipts, he came by twice to see if we had signed while we were still chatting. I live in NYC and completely understand and am respectful of the need to rotate tables, but again the room was still half empty and this felt rushed and uncomfortable. I would still recommend the place since it is quite unique, but wasn't too happy with the experience."

"We were skeptical in choosing RTR for dinner but decided that if we looked at it as "entertainment with refreshments" and an iconic New York City experience, it would be worth it and it was. The decor is spectacular, well worth the visit; the food was good but not great (portions were huge if that's your thing); service attentive but not super friendly; we were seated in the less-crowded and less noisy second floor (which I recommend). We went during restaurant week which also helped and totally makes it worth it. All in all, we are glad we had the experience at least once but probably wouldn't do it again for the money it costs (unless it's Restaurant Week)."

"My kuliebieka and borscht were tasty. The stroganoff was really a chewy short rib. Overpriced. Really not what it used to be."
