The Russian House
A little trip to RussiaWhat a find! A cultural experience with so many things to try. The servers were very helpful, the food was interesting and fresh, and there was quite an extensive drink list.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a surprise!We consider ourselves adventurous eaters, but we're unaware of this restaurant until finding it on Open Table. Who knew you could find authentic, traditional Russian cuisine right in the heart of Austin. Our Russians peaking server gave us great suggestions for our meal, a shot of vodka to kick things off, and was very attentive despite the packed dining room. We sampled the caviar, specialty soups, and an outrageous salad with fried duck and cooked pears over greens. Our entrees were delicious too, all enhanced by the nearly fifty flavors of houses fused vodkas we could choose from! Definitely a gem, and one we'll be back to soon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMsomething differentIt was a very interesting dinner, very different. from the regular menu. Had a great time.

I very much enjoyed the vodka, caviar, wine, and beef stroganoff. I will visit again during one of my next trips to Austin.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and great variety!Delicious food and great variety! Huge vodka selection too4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, not so good ambianceThe food was very good and so was the service. My only complain is that the bar is next to the dining area an the music is absolutely annoying. It is too loud and not appropriate to have a nice dinner. It's like trying to eat in a disco. At the beginning you barely notice it but after a while it can drive you crazy. Anyway, the menu is extensive, everything we had was delicious and the service was great.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a group toGreat place for a group to enjoy good food, drinks and have fun. If you're looking to try something new, try this place.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter each time we visitThe restaurant is getting better and better each time we visit. The menu is expanding, service is improving and guys do a great job with the selection of events. At least half of visitors are non-Russian, which is a great sign. Awesome job on introducing Slavic food to Austin! Check out the store to the left with some goodies to go.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time there, it wasOur first time there, it was great.

Unfortunately I couldn't stay longer in the bar but I will recommend to any don't carry babies at that time.
