Diner Reviews
  • "Kitschy but so much fun. The food and service were great, and we were super entertained. Be prepared to let go and have some fun; it is not a quick experience, but rather an involved one. Highly recommended for people looking for something new and fun in every respect."

  • "Got there at 8, There was no one to greet us at the front door to tell s where to go. Once we got to a seat, she asked us for our drink order but did not give us a menu or tell us what was the specials. She then came and asked us for our food order but we didn't know what was on the menu. She did not tell us what came with the three courses we had to ask. The salad was just lettuce, tomatoes, and 2 pieces of cucumber with some oil based dressing. The main course as Better. I had the beef and my guy had the salmon. Both were good but the Salmon was the best. The cake was a slice of chocolate cake that was dry and not very good. We left during the show b/c the women were not very cute they were older and it was just not a very good show."

  • "We ate there on a Thursday with free entertainment but it was suggested we return the next night for a better experience as there would be a better show, but we only stayed for the dinner to see how it was and were satisfied with what we ordered. It was good but I wouldn't consider it a favorite."

  • "Not only was there NO PARKING, but when we arrived, my wife and I were told there was a $20 charge for the show, something that was not clear when I made the reservation online. At first, the girl at the door told my wife it was $20 for entry, then she said it was $20 EACH. When I explained that we were not told, she apologized and said that someone should have told us. I decided we should leave. We turned around and walked out, and the girl protested, saying she could make a "two-for-one" exception for us. That was completely unsatisfactory, since we were only looking for dinner. I cannot recommend anything other than that. Personally, on general principles, I will never return. If someone else wants to give it a shot, be warned."

  • "We went to this restaurant with another couple. It took 20 minutes to get a drink order and over an hour to get our food. The Burlesque show was terrible and the sax player was a fake as well as the lip singers. I would not recommend this place to anyone I know."

  • "This experience was entertaining for my husband and I. The food was decent; service good and entertainment was engaging and fun. Show was a little cheesy but hey, we like cheesy. Would do this again and would probably take some others for an entertaining night."

  • "We attended the Suncoast Burlesque Festival Gala and despite there only being a moderate crowd it was like pulling teeth just to get water for our table. We would have loved to get food but considering what it took to get water we didn't even try to order anything else. Our "server" seemed like he had never waited on a table in his life. We were there for over two hours and had to fight to get water and coffee. Then when it was time for us to pay, the check came rather quickly however 20 minutes went by and I still hadn't gotten my change! I finally waived the boy down and told him we really had to go and I needed my change and he had the audacity to ask me if I could "just wait 5 minutes" .... as much as I wanted to go off on him I didn't."

  • "We enjoyed the interactive cabaret mystery show with the talented dancers and singers. Our only disappointment is that we were not offered the extensive buffet choices of vegetables and entrees that were featured on the website. Our choice between three entrees only included a small salad, but none of the mouth watering vegetables we were expecting."

  • "We had purchased a Living Social coupon. We drove 33 miles to St. Petersburg on Nov. 1st. The owner of the restaurant would not honor the coupon because she said it didn't go into effect until Nov. 15th, which was not stated anywhere including Living social and the restaurants website. Living Social refunded our money. We won't be returning."

  • "I ate here on 10/26 and majority of Menu was NOT AVAILABLE, the food I did have was a culinary delight. The Red Elvises made up for the lack of Menu choices."

  • "When we went there it was early evening 6PM I guess they are not used to having people come before 7PM. They had to give us a table at kitchen entrance though we were the only customers as they were trying to do the table arrangements for the evenings reservations. The waitress was attentive, but she was also required to set up the rest of the restaurant, so there was no real ambience, just people moving tables around. The food was okay, no much in spices, but this was our first try at "Russian" food. The potato & garlic starter was good, but everything else was bland. Not a great night for a birthday out, but it was "different" It was decorated in typical eastern block style. A little of everything put in a old building. But they did try."

  • "Once a month, St Petersburg Nights hosts the 1001 Nights Dance Showcase. Be sure to make reservations ahead of time and, if you are interested in eating, it's best to get there before the show at 8pm. The dance show is put on by an amazing group of artists; you don't want to miss it! St Petersburg nights is the best venue for it also. Come out for a great show and really good food!"
