The restaurant is located on a queit street. It is immpresive the way they decorated it and how the space was used.
We had a booking, but it was not in the main area. They managed to accomodate us in the mail room and that was fantastic. The atmosphere here was indeed the one of an elegant and fancy place. It was not crowded, the tables kept a good distance from eachother.
The service was ok, as we tolde them we had a fixed hour to leave and they were expecting other guest at the table
The food was excellent. The oysters were delicious and so were the Siberian veal dumplings. The Moscovski Borsch was delicious and so was the beef-Stroganof. The platting is spectacular for each dish. The desert looked well but they were not that tasty.
They do have a large variety of vines, expensive one, but among the best in the wold. We had Sancere and Chianti - very pleased with them
The place is expensive but it worths.

What a marvelous treasure where style and elegance is only matched by the superb Russian cuisine. All the lamb dishes are excellent and the wild boar was soft like butter and tasty to the last bite. The Oysters are the best in town. If you only go to one place to experience what dining in Moscow can be like, this is it.

The building is very interesting but that is where it ended for us. The food was average and it would appear that while they are trying work must be done. Amuse Bouche weak and even being told what they were the taste was not there. Dumplings were heavy and doughy albeit plentiful, cabbage soup was not hot, perch mails were a bit too fishy tasting and generally underwhelming. That was why the Vodka was soooooo good.

We had dinner here last night and it was very delicious!! Difficult to find; however, because the address led the taxis a couple stores down the road.
The interior is very nice and very fancy. I would recommend dressing up so that you feel not out of place.
We ate the set menu which was 5 courses for a very reasonable price. The beef cheek in rice pudding was my favorite.
