What a find!
It was nice to go out and have totally different menu choices. There were four of us and all of our meals were outstanding!

At first I was not certain what to expect. Hiwever the servise and the food were both outstanding. Good portuins and we never had to wait for service. We had a large group of people, therefore a variety of dishes were ordered . And I will say that one dish looked beter then the next. I'll be back for more if not just to taste for myself the other choices. Great dinner.

Wonderful service and drinks.
Wonderful service and drinks. Great selection of vodkas and beers. Some appetizers overdone, but caviar, filet, and soup were excellent. Caviar vodka drink outstanding. Can't wait to go again.

Service was a bit slow but
Service was a bit slow but we didn't mind as we weren't in a hurry anyways. Besides, once the food came (I had the lobster tails (3 approx. 4 oz. tails) and my partner had the rack of lamb (3 2-bone-in chops) it was well worth the wait. Atmosphere was very nice with a duo playing on guitar and trumpet adding to a cozy background sound. We are definitely going back sometime soon.

Fist time at Europa. I had
Fist time at Europa. I had a hard time choosing an entree as everything appealed to me. All the food was well prepared. The generous portion of bread has a great yeast smell accompanied by 3 different flavored butters of which the green olive was my favorite. The latkes with smoke salmon were outstanding as the salmon was not at all salty. First time trying Borscht and it was very good - did not taste like beets as I thought it would. Finally, the pork snitzel was very good except the rich mushroom sauce was very salty and I could not eat it. Although attentive, the wait staff was not very helpful re information about the food and was distracted in that my order was recorded wrong. I was not in a hurry and it was quickly corrected.

Excellent food. We are vegetarians, and were delighted to see the menu had symbols to indicate which items were vegetarian. They also made note of gluten free items. Although their vegetarian options are limited to only 3 entrees and a handful of appetizers/salads, we were very impressed with the quality of the food and the presentation, and would come back. We went on a Sunday night - they currently have a three piece band playing every Sunday evening. The music was a bit loud, making it difficult to hear normal conversation, but created a fun and energetic atmosphere. We didn't try out the vodka tasting freezer room, but would definitely consider returning with a group to try it out.

Not Just Another Tuesday Night
I just started seeing a girl and wanted to take her somewhere nice, but a place that wouldn't break the bank. I absolutely found this in Europa. The waiter was friendly, and attentive. The tilapia was both delicious, and sizable. She commented on the ambiance and how soft and inviting it was. I had to agree in kind. Being a Russian/East European themed place vodka seemed to be a big deal there. As a brown liquor guy, I had no interest in such, buy did enjoy some red wine as did she. While there a young jazz-fusion group preformed. It wasn't to loud, and they did well. Made me think of my days as a young jazz drummer. Overall a very pleasant experience. If you take it easy on the wine you can get out of there for under $50 for two.

Jessica was terrific and Tony as well. Excellent food and service. We brought friends this time and they loved it!

We'll be back
Food is great, drinks are great, live violin music, friendly and able service...we will be back again and again. Reasonably priced for gourmet items like lobster tails or lamb chops. Desserts are chef made and also outstanding. We had the chocolate crepes. Try the m
Generous selection of infused vodkas. You can always tell the difference between a restaurant with a real chef, and one where they are opening cans and heating in the microwave. This restaurant has a real chef.

As a first timer the experience, and service was excellent. they have a group option of three up to ten which I recommend. You can choose three entrees which is shared by everyone,and its plenty it also includes ten different appetizer. I truly enjoyed,and would recommend the Lamb,Duck,and the RUSSIAN SHNITZEL.

A small review in the paper prompted us to try Europa. Hidden in a retail strip plaza, the eastern European restaurant has never failed to please. From the dedicated service staff, the vodka room, the live entertainment on weekends, to the fabulous chef they all work to make this Pepper Pike treasure a great find.

We closed it
Took last reservation and we ended up being the last group, but the service never made us feel rushed, the food was fantastic. Exceptional!

Don't let the shopping center setting fool you. From the recessed foyer and hardwood leaded glass doors to the 0° Vodka Ice Bar, this is a classy place. Gourmet appetizers, entrees and desserts prepared with the highest quality ingredients (smoked salmon flown in from NY and hand-fileted, the scraps ending up a soft cream cheese ball served in a three scoop butter dish along with green olive butter and plain butter for the fresh baked French and Asiago breads.) Celebrating our 40th anniversary we were quietly serenaded by a violinist (the 6pm live music for the night. For dessert we enjoyed hand-made cherry ravioli cooked to order (more like Chinese Jiaozi dumplings) in a light strawberry sauce with dollops of sour cream. Best Chicken Kiev!

We dined at Restaurant Europa
We dined at Restaurant Europa on a Wednesday and Wednesdy nights are Tango Nights at Europa. The music is rather loud and dancers fill the bar area for lessons and open dance. This might not be everyone's cup of tea, but, to me, watching the dancing was interesting and fun.
Service was somewhat slow but very pleasant. Menu items are reasonably priced and portions are huge. There are quite a few unusual and interesting dishes that I'd like to come back and try in the future.

Excellent food; everything we had was great! Seems to be a hidden treasure! We don't live nearby but if we did we would certainly be there on a regular basis.

Very nice experience. The food was very good and different. Especially like the appetizers.

Such a wonderful meal!
Together my husband, a friend and I shared the "Russian Feast" and it was outstanding.
We started with 8 different cold appetizers and the amazing bread with flavored butters. Everything was beautifully prepared and served and just enough for 3 to sample and enjoy passing around.
We chose the schnitzel, meatloaf wellington and chicken for our entrees and again enjoyed sharing everything. It was all well prepared, very fresh and delicious. And the thoughtful waitress Tatiana timed each entree perfectly so that we could enjoy them all hot and at our own pace.
Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Sub zero room! Salsa Dancing! Gypsy
What isn't to love about a place that starts with a family style dinner of phenomenal cuisine, and beautiful house infused vodkas and ends with a "Siberian Simulation sub zero" vodka tasting room and salsa dancing where you can get crepes, quesodillas , and smoothies on top of a great selection of alcohols! HIGHLY recommend!

Eastern European fare
We come here on Sunday, when it is particularly quiet. Service is good, and most everything on the menu is interesting and well-prepared - as well as reasonably priced.

Excellent experience all around! Food was outstanding - duck delicious, chicken oboulys also. Dessert crepes so good we almost ordered a second. Jessica, as always, charming and helpful.

Food good; vodka better. Take your drink into the 15 deg below 0 freezer for a true Russian experience. Oh, they supply big Russian coats and hats...

We went for a business dinner based on the Open Table recommendations. It was a Tuesday night. Very small crowd, for a while we were the only patrons. I had the porkchop and it was about the best I've ever tasted. The bread was served with three spreads, one a salmon/cream cheese blend which I thought was excellent. My dining companion ordered the Russian Schnitzle and he seemed to be quite pleased. Our server was new and inexperienced, but very helpful and pleasant nonetheless.

The dining experience was very good! The food was excellent :-) The family style option was more than enough for four of to eat. Overall our group was very pleased and would go back again.

B-day dinner success
The food was delicious as well as the servers being attentive. I'd definitely go back maybe visit the ceviche bar and do a little salsa dancing. The description of the Siberian Iced Vodka room seemed off a little but it was still interesting.

Fun new experience
We visited Restaurant Europa on a blind double date for two of our friends. We wanted to encourage them both to be open to possibility and the restaurant created that opportunity. The food was new and different for us and pushed us outside of our comfort zones! Everything was delicious. Service was excellent. Vodka room was unique and fun!
