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.

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.

First time at Pravda...loved
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!!!

Fantastic service, great food,
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.

Caviar & Vodka Emporium
Excellent food and ambiance. Prices not bad -- but oh the noise.

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.

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.
