We have eaten here a few times,We have eaten here a few times, and the food is always just fantastic! Classic home style Russian, done very fancy, but very well. My Russian mother-in-law was very pleased with the meal and equated it to things her mother would have made "had she been a better cook".
The wait staff were very accommodating, and had no problem switching from Russian to English for me. We love this place and would recommend it to anyone who wants a romantic, hip, fun Russian dinner.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had Russian Brick OvenWe had Russian Brick Oven Borscht, "Solyanka" Russian Smokehouse Stew, Blinis with cured wild salmon, and Veal Pelmeni. Everything was delicious, the portions were generous, the service was attentive, and we were even given a free refill of wine. My dining partner, who lived in St. Petersburg for several years, was also enthusiastic about the food and said it all tasted "just right".
Either this place has vastly improved recently, or everyone who gave the place a bad rating ordered the wrong things. I have no idea how the non-Russian dishes here are. They may in fact be bad. But at a Russian restaurant you are well advised to stick to the Russian dishes, and these Onegin does very well indeed.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time we come here itEvery time we come here it is a little bit better. The food is amazingly well done, and reminds me of good home cooking, but in the most exquisite way possible.2/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
