    The server was very informative and attentive, personable. The food was interesting and well prepared. I had the dumplings topped with bell peppers and onions, beef filling, as well as some mini calzone type pastries with beef and potato filling. The roasted chunks of potato were browned on all sides. Drawback: being the ONLY person in the restaurant makes one feel odd

    Made a reservation through Opentable and drove 40 min. to find the restaurant closed. There was a small sign stating the restaurant was closed due to a private party - it was 7:30 and the place was dark. A special occasion was ruined.

    Can't really rate my experience since the restaurant was booked for a private party. Amazing that Open Table still allowed reservations. What's more amazing is that they keep all the reservations in a book (not in the electronics age). Hmmm....

    Was looking forward to trying good russian food but this wasn't e place for it. The host/waitress really did her best to accomodate us but the food was just terrible. Ordered the stuffed chicken....10 minutes later was told it would take 45 minutes to make. Waitress talked me into the chicken kiev. Worst I have ever had. It was obviously microwaved. The only good part of our meal was the pork belly appetizer...only to learn later it is supposed to be served with vodka which we were never offered.
