This is a parody on Russian food. The restaurant is now owned by the son of the original owners, who totally ruined the food. Nothing there reminds of good Russian cuisine besides the names on the menu. Stay away.

Visited here on a Sunday at noon and it was not busy at all. We took our seat out on the patio. The patio is a nice area with lots of seating and could use a little cleaning up but I still liked being outside....More
