  • "I had arranged for a large party to celebrate a friend's birthday. When I checked in (admittedly late), first, the receptionists told me they did not have a reservation under my name and then that I was the first one to arrive and that my table had been given away since we were late. So, my wife and I went to wait at the bar for a drink to await the rest of our party. After about 30 minutes or more, one of my friends emerges from the back where he has been with the rest of our party at the table under my name for about 45 minutes. Highly frustrating. A very bad start to the evening."

  • ".......although being there on Date Nite (Thurs) probably made it much louder than I recalled from previous visits. Have always loved the design==and the vodka/blini's/oysters etc. Our server was very efficient and cordial, and attentive."

  • "A freezing windy light snow flurry night. A loud energetic Saturday crowd in an edgy basement. Russian vodka at the bar. Russian vodka at the table. Great smoked salmon, creme fraiche, blinis, and more. Enjoy it."

  • "Great atmosphere, stylish decor, friendly staff BUT noise level off the charts. Impossible to have a conversation."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "Outstanding food and service. Caviar, vodka and champagne what else is there?"
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "The excellent service, good food and attractive atmosphere compensated for the noise level that was typical for a Friday night. This was our second time there and we'd definitely return."

  • "Excellent food and ambiance. Prices not bad -- but oh the noise."
    Dined on 9/11/2013
  • "Fantastic service, great food, delicious homemade vodkas. However "two for one" happy hour at the bar were advertised without restriction and at the restaurant our server told us that this only applied to the higher priced cocktails."
    Dined on 9/6/2013
  • "Excellent service and beautiful atmosphere. Try the house vodka"
    Dined on 8/29/2013
  • "Not really what I expected. The food was good but did not wow me. The ambiance was ok for a drink pre or after dinner but I would not recommend it as the main event/ dinner choice"
    Dined on 8/17/2013
  • "Really fun scene at night when it gets going around 10:30. The Moscow Mule is great drink. Ambiance is really cool and the food is delicious."
    Dined on 7/26/2013
  • "is the night to go here if you like to avoid the crowd but you like the vibe"
    Dined on 7/7/2013
  • "Amazing vodka drinks and cocktails - horse radish Bloody Mary will blow your mind away! Zakuski apertizers pricey but delicious, the smoked salmon melts in your mouth. Our party of 3 were rushed through the whole service although restaurant was not full at any point. We would have ordered more drinks in between courses but second course arrived while we were still eating the first one. Server kept asking if we were done and hovered over us all the time but did not ask if wanted to order anything else. They lost on revenue! This will still be my must go place when in NYC next time."

  • "The girlfriends and I made a trip down to Pravda for their "Roaring 20s" night. Neither roaring nor 20s. Fine for a drink and some ambience, but no need to make a special trip."
    Dined on 5/16/2013
  • "Not only did they have a 4 page menu, just for vodka...but the food was amazing too! Will be back!"
    Dined on 5/3/2013
  • "We thought this was an excellent night out. Decor is great. We ate caviar, drank champagne. Not cheap but a great evening"
    Dined on 4/20/2013
  • "The hostess was so rude and disrespectful we had to walk out! She was condescending and acted above the world. I would never recommend anyone ever stepping foot inside The restaurant wa basically empty and she still acted as if she was too busy an above the world"
    Dined on 4/13/2013
  • "Great Place!!! Had a great time!!! Me and my date really enjoyed our time there. I really recommend the Caviar Pizza, it was fantastic!"
    Dined on 3/23/2013
  • "First time at Pravda...loved it all...thought the place looked cool ...very hush, hush. Food was excellent and so was the vodkas!!!!!! Excellent overall... just one little drawback...and I can't figure out if we were being rushed out or that they were just being overly attentative...it was early so there wasn't a push for tables...but they just kept clearing stuff away before we were even done with it..and the waitress started explaining the specials without taking our drink order...would have to visit again...to figure it out... ps would have loved a little live Russian music !!! how cool would that have been!!!"
    Dined on 3/23/2013
  • "Great underground bar/speakeasy, but always packed on weekends and tough to get a seat. Music is also very loud so it's hard to have a conversation. Food, especially the duck (sp?) bread and butter was mindblowlingly good. Service could be better, had to flag down servers a few times, etc."
    Dined on 3/1/2013
  • "I was delighted to find the restaurant fairly empty at 7pm on a Saturday, which meant my friends and I could actually hear each other talking during our celebration evening. (Hard to find in Manhattan!) Pravda began to fill up an hour later and probably reached its usual (and deserved) crowds much later, after we had departed. Food, drinks and service remains fabulous through the many years I have been a patron. Pro tip: try the infused vodkas, they are sublime."

  • "Amazing atmosphere and drinks! We truly had a wonderful time!"
    Dined on 2/18/2013
  • "Celebrated my friends birthday at Pravda. The reservation was made for 6 and of course people were saying they were joining at the last minute. Although they wanted to wait for everyone to be there before we were seated, once five of us were there and were seated they were very understanding about the fluctuation of people. They just kept adding chairs for us and we had a great time there! Drinks and food were great."
    Dined on 11/30/2012
  • "This is a bar that serves decent, not a restaurant. Not recommended if you are seeking a sit down meal."
    Dined on 11/30/2012
  • "Cool atmosphere, very noisy. Rather a young crowd. They didn't have my OpenTable reservation on record, but were able to seat me and my friend anyway -- apparently their communications leave something to be desired. Food and service fairly good. Would recommend it for hip, very attractive people in their 20s and early 30s."
    Dined on 11/10/2012
  • "fun for a vodka-drinking night and snacking on smaller dishes"
    Dined on 11/3/2012
  • "Very poor service - hostess and waitresses were extremely rude even though we were courteous"
    Dined on 10/20/2012
  • "Our service was horrible. It took 10 minutes for our server to notice us and 30 minutes to get the bill. They mis-charged us and had to re-do the check. Will not return."
    Dined on 9/28/2012
  • "Staff is super friendly, while some of the bartenders can be a bit rough. Food is excellent and the happy hour is great."
    Dined on 9/27/2012
  • "Since our arrival the service was excellent. The food was excellent as well as the special cocktails."
    Dined on 8/9/2012
  • "This is a good place for couples and small groups. The hostesses were a little abrupt when we first came in and our waitress seemed totally overwhelmed (which is odd because the bar was not full) so the service was slow. The drinks were good, though, and the kitchen is open late, and it wasn't so loud you couldn't have a conversation."
    Dined on 8/5/2012
  • "We went early on a Saturday (6:30pm - pre-theater) and were greeted by a nearly empty restaurant. Unlike many NYC establishments, Pravda didn't feel awkward and quiet even though most of the tables were empty. The staff attended to us perfectly - friendly, not hovering, the food delivery was well paced...I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I can't wait to go back...maybe we'll try to go later next time, but then again, maybe not."
    Dined on 7/21/2012
  • "The Caviar martini is a gimmick but a fantastic one. The tall front door guy hit on me once and was pretentious another time. The food is so-so... so much so that I don't even remember if it was good or not."
    Dined on 7/20/2012
  • "The host Juan is the best in the business and makes his clientele feel both at ease and special. There is no better bar in all of Soho..."
