We ordered the rack of lamb and schnitzel and it was very good. The service was quick and friendly and we definitely got what we paid for. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

It was a family dinner out. Relaxing nicely paced meal family style. I felt the portions of main food items were well portioned. The salads could have been larger. Curious to know if the items ordered from the menu would have been larger in portion than divided in the family style formate

We arrived about 5:45 pm on Saturday night. The restaurant was quiet and a few tables were seated. From the beginning the service was slow. As time went on, the restaurant filled up. Our also the bartender. As you can imagine the busier the restaurant became the slower the service.

The food was very good. It was hot and had a nice presentation.

I would recommend this restaurant as long as you are not in a hurry.

We were one of two tables occupied on a Thursday evening. The food was inedible. I had crusted sea bass which was greasy and tasteless. My rice was gummy and cold and the vegetables uncooked and cold. The blini soggy and gummy, as well. The other three people in my party did not eat their food either. I don't know how they stay open, but we'll never go again and will discourage anyone who asks about the restaurant.

Restaurant was very quiet and the violinist was good. Ice bar is NOT worth going for it's a walkin cooler with furs. It was cheesy but fun. Food was very good. Salsa dancing downstair afterwards was a lot of fun and they even give you lessons if your there by 8:15 so dine early to get downstairs in time. You can also get gift cards from Restaurants.com. We'll go back.

This was our first visit but it certainly won't be our last. There were three of us as we brought a friend who was celebrating her birthday. I put that in my reservation request and our server surprised her with a candle in her chosen dessert and had the violinist come to our table to play Happy Birthday to her . She was delighted! We shared appetizers which were excellent - our server was very helpful when asked for her opinion - and tasted each other's entrees and desserts. We never felt rushed which really allowed us to enjoy the violinist and wonderful meal.

The soloist was exceptional. He did an excellent job on the violin as well. My husband ordered Yellow Perch on a bed of kale with wild rice. Very good. Best kale we've ever tasted. We ordered the lobster dish to go. Very pleased with it. Grilled chicken salad was superb. All in all it was a good experience. On the down side, there were no table clothes. That took a lot away from the ambiance. There were clothe napkins which did help some.

First red flag when walking Into the restaurant was the fact that it was empty. Literally. High prices on food that had no flavor at all. Steak just tasted like meat... No seasoning. Mashed potatoes were not from scratch... Straight out the box. Rest of the food tasted like it was from the freezer. Service was fine but I'll never dine there again that's for sure. Gordon Ramsey would close the place for sure.

We had a pleasant experience with the mgr Rusty(i think that was his name) he took the time to explain the menu, the ice bar and cater to my 12yr old. We plan on going back very soon. The food was fabulous, we had stuffed lobster, duck and schintzel. The ambience and the Argentine Tango was a bonus...Great Spot for a date nite!

The dining experience was unique, beginning with 8 appetizers served family style. Our server did an outstanding job of keeping us informed of the various choices. These delicious choices were followed by 3 hearty main courses, all served family style. Everything was quite tasty. All of the food was fresh and prepared to perfection. There was just too much food, much of which was taken home.

This is one of my favorite places to go! I love this place, and have to recommend the lamb and the lobster! I have also enjoyed the shrimp cocktail with the herbed vodka cocktail sauce. Everything was so wonderful. There was a live violinist there that night, though he played along to pre-recorded tracks. Service was friendly and attentive.

Our meal at Restaurant Europa was fantastic! Be sure to have the Seafood Crepes! They were amazing! Everything in this restaurant was home made. You can tell that great care is put into every meal.

Also try the assorted fruit infused vodkas.

Our server was very nice and attentive. The Manager also stopped by the table to make sure that we were happy with our meal. Next time we would like to come back with more people to try the family style meals.

Cute photo opportunities in the Vodka Room. Enjoy!

We were disappointed this time. The waitress was forgetful and inattentive. The food lacked flavor and my husband's Scallops were rubbery and overcooked. We have been to this restaurant a number of times with great results. I am hoping that this visit was not an indication of things to come.

We went there not knowing that Sunday was Tango night. While I enjoy watching other people dance, especially those who are good, the music was SO LOUD it was hard to talk at our table in the next room. The family stlye dinner is the best option for groups of 3 or more. Lots of good flavors and variety with the family dinner.

If you have three or more in your party, try the family style. The party members should select different entrees so everyone can try a number of things from the menu which you can share with another.

This was the first visit for the three of us. We did enjoy the appetizers and entrees being spaced throughout the evening and being able to talk/visit..

Definitely a place to try again.

Europa is a little gem tucked away among shops and other businesses. Notable for its "Ice Bar" which is a cold room featuring many kinds of vodka for tasting. This is a place to experience what vodka really can be on its own. Love Grey Goose? Wait until you try some of the bartender's vodka recommendations! Food her is earthy, hearty old-world. Borscht and beet salad, lamb and schnitzels, duck and stuffed cabbage. And everything tastes like something your Baba used to make.

We drove up from Columbus just to experience Restaurant Europa. Although the music was good, I think it would be better if the violinist would go solo rather than playing along to a track. The food was delicious, best stuffed grape leaves ever. Although the vodka was great, it wasn't nearly as cold as advertised. We really got a kick out of donning the furs and hanging out in the freezer room, though. Overall, I'd return in a heartbeat.

Restaurant Europa was a great choice for a Valentine's dinner where romantic atmosphere wasn't important, but great food was.

For appetizers we got the mushroom belini and the smoked salmon & latkes. For entrees my wife got the duck breast and had the Ahi Tuna. The total bill was just under $60 before tax and tip. Everything was delicious. The staff was friendly and responsive. We also liked the live violinist who played during dinner. We arrived just before the dinner rush, but by the time we left, the place was buzzing with activity. I'd recommend this place for anyone who knows and likes Russian food, or anyone else who's interested in something off the beaten path.

Went in for the Ceviche Bar but found out its only open on Fridays so we sat at the main bar and decided to give it a try. While the ambiance was a little lacking the food and service at the bar was outstanding! We tried the grape leaves stuffed with ground lamb and the seafood crepes, found them both to be very good! Then we ordered the Kobe steak and it was super awesome!! We sampled many different vodka's and ended up having our picture taken in the -14 chilled vodka room with the fur coats they provide, so much fun!! We finished the night with a desert and really enjoyed our experience!

Thoroughly enjoyed the food at Europa. The grape leaves appetizer was excellent as was the chicken obuolys. They have a short, but fine vodka drink menu. Try the Russian Mule! The menu is eclectic, anchored by a few eastern european staples and rounded out with some fine meat and seafood selections, including two ceviche appetizers (there is also a separate ceviche bar downstairs, which was closed the even my wife and I were dining.

The Ice Bar makes a fun photo opp and finale to the evening. They have concerted a meat locker into a small rustic, cabin like setting (at -12 degrees) to enjoy a quick vodka shot. To add to the kitsch, the restaurant has an array of fur coats and hats to keep you warm while in the ice bar.

This restraint has a good variety of dishes that would appeal to most folks. The chicken obuolys was delicious. The soup du jour, spicy mushroom, was a wonderful treat. Just enough spice to warm the palette. The Maine lobster tail was disappointing as they were baked in the shell which made the meat stick to the shell and hard to remove. Overall, a wonderful dinner. We would go back again.

I thought this would be a novelty night out, something different to be experienced by four friends. I was a little dubious about trying Russian food but what a pleasant surprise! Three of us tried a sampler which included eight (yes, that's right ~ eight!) appetizers and three entrees. The appetizers were mostly vegetable based and so delicious I think I could become a vegetarian if I could make these dishes. All the vegetables were so fresh. I never have been a fan of beets; in fact I hate them but I tried the beet salad and I loved it. I guess its all about the preparation. By the time the entrees came we were pretty full. However we tried everything and took plenty home. We loved it! We'll be back for sure!
